Hello fellow warriors,

I have been on and off with affiliate marketing in the past 2 years. I am finally in a place where I can invest some time and money into my site to get it off the ground. Here is my Site

1. I was hoping you guys would give me tips on how I could improve my site.

Also, I was considering start an Instagram+shopify journey.

2. I was wondering if anybody has success with this combination

    do not like "14 steps to starting a business in college title"
    i'd change it to "14 steps to starting a business"
    (just my preference)

    also, your step-by-step to investing in real estate should be a book, not a few paragraphs
    i'd give more details

    Matthew...

    1- Your home page's background image is clashing with the moving template. Looks kind of messy. You may want to rearrange it better. Looks too noisy.

    2- No call to action. You visitors will most likely get confused and hit the back button. You need to tell them what you want them to do. There seems like no specific direction on your home page. If people are confused or don't know what to do, they will leave.

    I usually put my content in front of people it can serve. Then once they land on my site, I then give them some info that solves why they are on my site (and the main reason why they are visiting).

    Then at the end of my post I have a call to action that tells them to click on another link (to my lead capture page) and why they should do this (what they will gain).

    You can also add an email software form like Aweber to start building a list on your side bar.

    3- Your contact / feed back form is just way too big.

    Hope this helps.

    Bad move

    Forget about the site. You need some credibility and experience first. Work on getting that. make some cash off of being an affiliate first.

    You are taking the fake it till you make it approach so many others have tried and failed with.

    MMO is crowded and hard to break into with good cash and thats even for those who HAVE made some money

    Don't believe people can tell you don't have any real experience about making money online?

    it always comes out

    in this case your first article on MMO was doing surveys for cash.

    Dead giveaway.

      Yeah I agree. I did the surveys thing when I started out 10 years ago. No wealth creating there. Actually, very misleading. It's really only a way to make some extra change.

    Mike is right.

    You need to show provenance.

    If you haven't done so already, then build a REAL business before you start teaching people how to build a successful business.

    Otherwise it's just the blind leading the blind.

    And if you're going to choose any niche, the marketing / mmo niche is one of the most difficult.

    If anyone is 100% certain they wanna enter niches like that, I'd encourage them to build another business outside of it too (have 2 sites), while documenting their journey on the mmo site.

    It's an honest way to do things.

    Remove the spam comments.

    I know they seem like a good thing but bot-generated comments are not going to help you.

    Go to your settings and select discussion, then "Comment must be manually approved."

    Only allow genuine comments.

    As others have said, MMO isn't the easiest way to get started.

    My core business is promoting PPL(pay per lead...lead generation) offers. Have been doing it for a little over 17 years. The key reason it's what I do is that there is no credit card / purchase is required for a user to complete an offer. All anyone has to do is fill out a form (requesting more info on X). So conversion rates are typically much higher compared to offers that require a sale to be made.

    Proven to be the path of least resistance to generation conversions / $$$.

    Some of the niches I have done extremely wee with are: education, insurance, loans, credit, debt, mortgage, discount offers, homeowner offers, dating, etc...

    Bottom line, it's far easier to get someone fill out a short form than to get them to pull out their credit card and make a purchase. So why struggle with trying to sell this or that, when you can provide free information that users want/need and get paid well doing it.

    Something to think about

    The site looks nice and clean.

    I would sell stuff that a step by step entrepreneur would be interested in. Like, stuff that helps folks build their online ventures.

    Anything you feel passionate about, and clear on, should sell nicely if you provide ample free content related to the product and keep building your friend network.

    Matthew,

    You need to change the background on your site, it is too busy and makes the text hard to read. Also it loaded slow for me, work on speeding it up.

    As far as Instagram goes, it's a great way to promote just about anything, of course you need a following which may take you some time to build.

    Hope this helps!

    I would simplify the entire site. Make the hover ad appear as soon as someone lands on your site. Move the offer to sign up to your email newsletter all the way to the top of the page. And what is the purpose of the "make money online now" and "learn to build wealth" buttons? I think they should be removed. Just get to the point and start selling.

    I had watched at your site, made with optimizepress, not all through but enough.

    Most of the programs you reccomend are scam, like surveys, the company has fake testimonials, ask 34 usd for join, then if you leave they will reduce at 19 usd, and obviously you don't earn 240 usd per day.

    Then trading etc.

    I see you wanna make money, and you tried to approach a very large niche, posting here and there for almost everything around the internet business opportunities, and maybe you bought some comments.

    But it will not work.

    You have to focus on a narrow niche, and promote programs you tried and are confident too.

    And build an opt in page, do email marketing at first, build your list, test.

    Try to choose a niche where you have some expertise in it, or you can rely on other one expertise, like weight loss.

    Don't get fooled on making money instantly: instead learn email marketing. Which is your only asset, sustainable.

    It's a unique business, but if you want to earn money from it, firstly you have need to rank on search engines and implement proper on page SEO and off-page with the help of professionals, then you can be able to earn money. According to me Insta and Shopify a best platform. Good luck!!
