I broke $10,000 in March 2012 vs $1,800 in 2011

105 replies
Actually I broke $11,000. $4,362 adsense, $3,298 cj.com and $3,728 amazon. March was my one year anniversary of working for myself...and was a record month.

You can read one of my first posts from November 2010 where I was pumped about making $930.
http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...i-ve-done.html

Then, In September 2011 I broke $100/day in adsense and predicted I'd break $10,000 in 2012...I just did... http://www.warriorforum.com/adsense-...y-adsense.html

I don't have an email list...although I'm trying to start one now.
I don't have my own products to sell.
I only sell physical products, no clickbank stuff (not that that is a bad thing).
Most of my adsense related sites are giving things away I've made for free.
I do mix in amazon and adsense on some of my sites.
I don’t backlink heavily...all my sites are 15 months old or newer and are all PR1 and below.
I probably have around 30 sites that make money each month.
I have two adsense accounts (one's my wife's) just in case something happens beyond my control to my sites.

//Amazon tips
Are you looking for those $100+ products to sell? I don't...you know how I determine if I'm going to make a site around a niche of products on amazon? My only criteria is if I can RANK for the keyword in google...I don't give a rats about how much the product costs. It's also good to see some of the products with some nice reviews. Once people get to amazon they buy other stuff...a lot of my money comes from other things people buy once I get them to amazon.
Bottom line....get people to Amazon.

Some products on cj.com pay a lot more (20%-35%) then you can get on Amazon and I cherry pick those and link to the vendor site in cj.com. However, when customers go to a vendor in cj.com they usually only buy that specific item vs at amzon they buy a lot of other things.

//Things I’m doing in 2012
I’ve built over 80 sites in the last year and not all have been winners. I’ve been shutting down sites (probably 40 or so) that are not performing or are low quality early mistakes.

I’m building larger broad niche sites or category sites that can go after lots of random keywords and longtail. I’ve noticed on my larger sites that a lot of the traffic comes from longtail keywords.

I’m really focusing on quality. I’m giving quality advice, news, free items and even how to guides or helpful comparison information. Quality content is long term and that’s what google wants and that’s what customers want.

I’m still going light on my backlinking, using blog networks, web 2.0, social bookmarking article marketing, directories, manual blog commenting...I also do some spammy fiverr gigs to web 2.0 properties/pages like link wheel, pyramids and forum blasts (not to my money sites).

I’m getting into drop shipping. I’ve partnered with some successful businessmen and we’re setting up partnerships and drop shipping websites with people that have products but not the time or knowhow to sell online. I’ll hopefully have some tips experience on drop shipping in the coming year.

I’m just a regular guy with three kids that made the dream of working for myself happen....after a lot of hard work...it’s not easy and it doesn’t happen overnight.

Thanks to all the warriors for all the great tips I’ve read over the last year.

    this serves as proof that it doesn't take forever to make good money online, just a solid consistent effort, it wasn't very long before I hit my first $10,000 month after starting.

    Invest your money wisely.

        Eyetrap, do you have a set formula for doing Amazon reviews? What about
        word length of the review? Some people say Amazon reviews should be 1000 words...do you agree?

        Congratulations on your success...very inspiring!

        It's always nice to hear about someone having success like this from nice, steady work. Sometimes, it seems like the only ones who can really make it is if you have some lucky break. (Or you can just drop everything else and devote 20 hours a day to IM.) You prove it just takes steady, consistent effort.

        Very Inspirational for a newbie like me! I just started about 2 months ago and am determined to make this work so I can enjoy more time with my family (and a little extra dough to make my wife happy!) I only have 3 sites, just bought a 4th domain, and have made a whopping $6 with Adsense so far. I'm also signed up with Amazon but haven't made any money with them yet. It just gives me hope to hear your story. Although I wasn't planning on making it big overnight I do get a little discouraged sometimes and after reading this post, I'm even more destined to keep rockin it out until I get some keywords #1 in the ranks!

        Thanks Noobs!

Can someone please tell me what your website should look like - I mean, a website that makes money out of Amazon commissions for example. Maybe someone could give a link as an example? It would be highly appreciated...really! Again, yours is a really inspiring story! Sorry for the off-topic.

  • This is great motivation for someone like myself. I have been a part time marketer for about 7 months and have some gas money here and there. I understand that I am still learning but have a heart to succeed! I hope this will inspire others to keep pushing on and never give up on what they hope for. i look forward to marketing full time in less than a year.

    Also for cj, have you polulated your page with related products or do you drive traffic to the merchant's home page? Some cj vendors do not provide deep links though!
    One more thing, from your earlier post I saw you are using product names in the domain name. Does it mean you use trade marks in them?

    But definitely curious to see what they're doing for you.

      Honestly basic themes work best. I use about three different themes, but most I'm using thesis. You can make a great adsense or amazon site with the default Wordpress theme. Some of the best sites are simple.

      I like to make best of posts, put up a table in the posts with a grid of products linking to amazon on the pictures and check price text.

      Getting a special theme doesn't matter much on a typical site, it's your content.

      There are some great themes for showing many categories on the front page at themeforest.net...I use two themes from there.

    Congratulations and thanks for sharing your success (and not forgetting the failures And good to see you are adding value by giving advice etc. Very nice.

    //Things I'm doing in 2012
    I've built over 80 sites in the last year and not all have been winners. I've been shutting down sites (probably 40 or so) that are not performing or are low quality early mistakes.

    I'm building larger broad niche sites or category sites that can go after lots of random keywords and longtail. I've noticed on my larger sites that a lot of the traffic comes from longtail keywords.

    I'm really focusing on quality. I'm giving quality advice, news, free items and even how to guides or helpful comparison information. Quality content is long term and that's what google wants and that's what customers want.

Once people get to amazon they buy other stuff...a lot of my money comes from other things people buy once I get them to amazon.
    Bottom line....get people to Amazon.
    Eyetrap...

    Congrats on your success! I've read your other posts too! Great stuff there!

    By the way, keyword research is more than half the battle with Amazon. It's nice to see you tap into this gem!

    Keep building on that momentum....You're doing the right things!

    did you notice that the OP is focusing on quality...quality content?
    when you have quality content, an authority site, Google loves you, and rewards you with lots and lots of free organic traffic.

    congrats!

    Good on you for your success! I started making a living online last year and it has been the best move in my life. This should serve as a motivation for others that want to reach the same level of success in their life. Are you going to write a WSO outlining what you did each and every month to get there????

    Honestly guys, I've done nothing special, there is no magic or secret.
    Basic keyword research, quality content, a nice basic theme, a few backlinks from lots of different places.

    It just takes time and a lot of work...at least for me.

    Everything you need to know is in the forum, wsos or plenty of make money sites.

    It sounds like you have hit the nail on the head and worked hard at it so you deserve your success cos you have treated it as a business and not a get rich quick scheme.

    A huge pat on the back and a big well done. Thanks much for hearing your success story, I goes to inspire everyone, even if we have been the game a while. Please let us know how you have gone in the last 6 months.

    Also, I know they say the money is in the list, however, a list is no good to you unless it is a buyer list. So many people have lists that are unproductive and unresponsive!

    Again well done
