I have been involved with Internet Marketing for about 3 months now, which is when I started my niche site. I got started through Wealthy Affiliate (interested in your guys' opinions of WA as well).
My site is over at www.StraightForwardPrepper.com - It's a survival/preparedness website.
I've made only about $150 so far. My idea was to basically write articles, present a problem and offer a solution, usually in the form of a text link to a product through my Amazon affiliate link.
I have, roughly, anywhere from 50-150 people a day (uniques) visiting the site. Most traffic is coming from Facebook, Pinterest, Reddit, various message forums, other sites reposting my articles and most often no referrer link at all.
I have exactly 32 signed up for my newsletter so far. I have yet to send anything out via newsletters yet (not sure how to go about that atm).
My thoughts: My YouTube videos need to be ramped up and included in my articles. I need to play around with the spacing, fonts and headers on the site. I also would like to maybe have a separate page for newsletter sign-ups, something that explains in more detail what they're getting.
I guess I'm trying to figure out what mistakes I'm making, what are the biggest improvements I can make right now and how I can take the site to the next level. I feel like there is something more I'm supposed to be doing, but I don't know exactly what it is.
I appreciate all of your thoughts. I've been reading the forums here off and on, but never actually registered.
Thanks in advance,
