New affiliate marketer, dead website!

5 replies
Hello All,

My name is Justin Walker, I am a current active duty service member looking to make affiliate marketing my full time source of income. Affiliate marketing appeals to me in many different ways. I love the idea of working from home and for myself while spending more time with my family.

My trouble so far is that I built a website around a fairly high gravity click bank product and didn't sell anything. Now, I'm not quite sure where to go from here. I would like to avoid making the same mistakes with my next product.

My flop of a website is bestsoftwarefordubstep.com. Please know that this is not an attempt to develop back links or promote this product. I truthfully and sincerely desire all the help I can get.

As you can see from the image above, I did have traffic at one point. Then all of a sudden, my site dropped from the first page in google to the second and now remains dead where it landed.

So I had a few questions. The first being, is DubTurbo worth promoting?
- Should I change products? What products should I be looking for?

The second question is, how does the site stack up?
- Should I change/add something? Could the site be profitable with improvements?

Finally I would just like to hear any opinions and ideas that come to mind. Really, any ideas that would help me achieve my goal of becoming a successful affiliate marketer I would love to hear.

I really appreciate all of you taking the time to answer my questions and sharing any insight you have regarding my website and affiliate marketing.

Respectfully,

Justin Walker

    hey Justin

    first of all i have no idea what is your niche, but i had the feeling you are promoting a click bank product

    dont rely only on clickbank product, clickbank in most cases are worthless. honestly.

    you can find related affiliate offer, with a private affiliate program, those are better especially if it pay directly tho paypal.

    you can also find companies and webmasters who are paying money to google thro adward, they will love to have advertizing on your site instead of paying Google too much money for the PPC.

    most important go back to building backlinks to your website from authority sites, so you can get your ranking back, if you have some money to spend on linkbuilding, do it, the best investment on this business is on SEO.

    when you get your website in high ranking, then you can make more money

    good luck

        Hi
        I'm a bit of a newbie too and have had my ups and downs with click bank. There are some good products but I wouldn't promote anything that I hadn't bought first and knew was good.

        Sorry I can't help you with your Google issues but it sounds to me like you're putting all your eggs in one basket. To drag out the old cliche "It's all in your list". Even as an affiliate marketer you should be building your own list in your niche, that way you will not be so much at the mercy of Google.

        In any other business you would be unwise to rely too heavily on one source of business, so why are you doing it with IM?

        Good luck with your venture, stick with it.

        depend on your niche, if you are in the "make money online" niche so i will diversify between good network marketing opportunity and money making systems that also combine affiliate marketing and network marketing.

        If your website or blog is about work from home, and make money online it will be the worst idea to use clickbank, for example imagine that i land on your blog and found a good product you are promoting and when i click buy i land on clickbank checkout page, then simply i will go back, change the affiliate ID to my own and buy and this way i will get the affiliate commission not you.

        there are some good systems that make better money and no one can steal your affiliate commission, if you need some help you can contact me directly thro email

        good luck

        and by the way, we all need to dance with Google, it is still the best source of traffic
