My question is : is it still possible to start in affiliate marketing now and make good money ($1000+/month) at it ?
The reason I ask is because every method I've encountered seems overdone:
AdSense sites, authority sites, review sites, Facebook pages with affiliate links, Amazon sites, Conduit sites, etc.
Every niche and sub-niche in buyers markets (health, fitness, relationships, money...) is already filled with high-quality, high-traffic, SEO-performant websites.
And let's not kid ourselves: my personal interests would hardly make me $50/month considering how little traffic they generate.
