My Wife Only Started Affiliate Marketing About 1 Year Ago!

41 replies
My wife was encourage a little by me in the past to try affiliate marketing and at this point and time, is someone I would actually trust to do keyword research and PPC. She has only been doing it for a very short time, but has excelled, she learns fast and is logical and takes action on what she reads.

At this point in time, her next affiliate check is estimated to be quite large

Oh by the way, don't ask what niche, I can't reveal that for sure.........

Just thought this information might encourage some people who think that they cannot make a decent part-time or full time income doing affiliate marketing.

The main thing I would like to stress, is this, you HAVE to do keyword research, and make sure you have the best keywords for your niche. Even if it it takes you weeks or a month to do it, you have to do it, because anything else you do, will be a waste of time without having the proper keywords. Even if you are doing PPC.

    When you eat and sleep with your mentor it is quite easy to make $20-$30 grand.

    Coaching has its' perks dunnit?

      ^^ This is the truth, I was in IM for a while as a brand new noob, and wound up quitting, since I've come back, it's a whole new ball game for me.

      Being able to skip the trial and error that comes with being band new is HUGE!

      Your wife had that luxury thanks to you I'm sure...

        May I ask what line of affiliate marketing your wife is achieving such great success in? Is it CPA, or maybe Amazon, Clickbank, or Adsense?

        Of course I'm not asking you to disclose the niche, but I would love to hear the general line she is following

        Congratulations to her, by the way

    Thanks for telling us your wife's story. It does seem impossible at first when days are going by and you are not making anything. I guess the one take away is that you have to always keep moving forward and taking action.

    He already gave you all the information you need. It's the KEYWORD. If you have the proper keyword you will get the traffic.
    There is no magic. It takes work.
    I have 6 people working. Three of us are good at finding keywords. Some write beautiful copy. Some are great at graphics. Some are very technical and can cure any computer and networking problems thrown at them.
    I do alot of sales every month 300+ phone calls to current and past clients. I have a golden email list with about 400 clients that give me 100-150 sale per month. My niche is real estate. Did I give away too much already?

    That's great Steve sounds awesome! I've made a lot of money with google ad words and I totally agree without proper keyword research you're wasting your time.

    Good stuff, congrats!

    Another tactic is to rely less on keyword research tools and use keywords which are not present in those tools.. this way you can rank for keywords which have traffic and very less competition (since they are not referenced by the tools).

      No you forgot to tell me what you are selling, what is the your trade secrets, and, can you email me your list with customers email, address, and, phone numbers. :rolleyes:

      Really it is amazing how people can't connect the dots.

      obviously it is for the month. He said Next commision check...less she gets paid daily or weekly which I doubt.

        @OP: Yes, I completely agree with what you leaked here - that, right KW research is the most under-rated and most important part of the online IM business. If you look for the goldmine - the diamond keyword - and work on it you are going to sell.

        Sales copy for most niches do not make much difference. It does make a terrific difference to some niches for sure, but not for a lot of them as long as you have got it decently okay and are not really badd at it.

        I'll take an example here. I had a $4,500+-per-month affiliate site on a single niche and 2 keywords (I mean that's what I earned at #1 for the main KW till Panda hit me) - because I had got the niche research correct. And then I tried lifting another site on the same niche and recovering this one. The earlier one was a rather ugly-looking one with hand-coded PHP that most of you would hate to own (the one that used to get me decent sales and earning at $150-odd per day) and this was looks wonderful and very relevant with a beautiful Wordpress theme etc. Now this new one is up at #4, and it is seeing a fraction of sales of what my earlier ugly-looking #1 site used to see when it was at #4 (I mean, to reach #1 the ugly-looking one had to go through the #4 slot and so I know how much you could possibly have at #4 for that niche). So there goes your theory of beautiful-looking sites with better sales copies. And yet it is selling, because the niche is a great one.

        Niche research is one of the MOST important things that you need to do right. It is the first step to take your next product - the base really - and with a weak base how big a skyscraper can you build?

      What does it matter how much she earned in a year?

      It only matters that she is GOOD at what she does and it really is no business of ours what her total earnings are. I would be delighted to earn that monthly check every six months!

      This thread is to encourage others and it will.

      Steve, Well done to your wife - you are a lucky man!

    Her next check is for $20 to $30 thousand dollars.

    But how much did she spend on PPC and banner ads to get a check for that much?

    Thank you for taking the time to post this, I think people who are just getting started need to see that it can be done and that there is hope as long as you are willing to put forth the effort to make it work for you.

    For a long time I thought that I could make money the easy "hands off" way, once I stopped thinking that way and started putting my energy into doing what I enjoyed doing I started making money.

    Congrats to your wife, sounds like she is a committed person and she deserves the success she has received.

    Hi Steve

    Can you persuade your wife to write a WSO??

    I think it would sell quite well.

    Cheers

    How did everyone know she was going to make $(edit: top secret now) when the OP didn't say a word about the actual amount? Unless I'm going blind.

    Whatever the amount though, I agree with all the congratulatory remarks-well done to her, and to you, Steve. (Did I miss one of your posts?)

    Edit: Duh!

    Would your wife be making quite a few contacts (Potential clients/customers) through social media? Women do seem to excell at social media marketing whereas many chaps (like myself) are crap at it. Probably why ladies like your wife will eventually wipe the floor in the internet marketing niche` (And good luck to you both) so hang on in there :-)

      Naay, she has no time for social marketing. Maybe in the future she might do something with social marketing when she has time to find a sure fire way to do it, and not just bump around wasting time.
