Brand new, want to get my feet wet

10 replies
Hello Warriors. I have been toying with the idea of creating income streams online for a while now. I started a niche blog on blogspot and have made a whopping $14.48 in about 6 months. Granted I did not put in tons of hours as I have been in graduate school. I just graduated and am looking to delve more deeply into making money online.

Largely from reading this forum, I know I will need to do some basic things such as register and host a domain, use wordpress to build a site, build an email list and sell sell sell... But WHAT to sell and where to start? Does it make sense to build a squeeze page for a clickbank product and try to sell this through my website? Or better to build a review site and be an affiliate for a variety of products?

If these options are ignorant, please let me know but any advice on where to start would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks and have a great day.

Dylan

  • Honestly i would make amazon review websites. Theres tons of reasons why (in my opinion) physical goods sell better then non tangiable items.

    Build a squeeze page,
    to build a list..

    Drive traffic to your
    squeeze page, some of
    them will join your list..

    Then you can email
    your list subscribers
    affiliate offers..

    When you start
    making money,
    scale-up with paid traffic..

    Can someone show me an example of a well put together squeeze page? Also, when I tried to sign up for amazon affiliates I had to have a website first? What if I just want to see what they have to sell?

    Thanks

      You can post affiliate links for all the products you see on Amazon (that's a reason why a lot of people use them). Also, you do not need to have a website to become an Amazon affiliate.

    I agree with those who have recommended Amazon.

    Pick simple automated tools and learn them. Just a few. Don't fall down that rabbit hole but without tools its hard to build a house.
