I have since made two review sites, one for Amazon Associates, and one for some Clickbank products. I haven't made any sales with the Clickbank site, but I haven't really given it that much attention. I just started making sales on my Amazon site (1.27% CR, but hey it's better than nothing). My amazon site is ranked on page 1 for my main keyword, and now I am working on getting it in the top 3. It feels good to start seeing progress. If you keep at it and put the things you learn here into practice you will make it happen.
Now I can evaluate the things I am doing now and figure out how to increase my conversion rate. Once I start seeing better conversions I plan to rinse and repeat the process.
Make a plan, on paper, and stick to it. Don't make excuses, just work at it.
I have also started making a little money with AdSense which is awesome because it's just something that's in the background of it all.
Also, before you start spending money on ANYTHING I recommend you invest $37.00 in a WarRoom membership - it's been incredibly helpful to me. You will be amazed at the things you will find in the War Room.
Anyway, I just wanted to share my small success with you guys and hopefully help you stay motivated. Good luck.
