    I sincerely doubt someone will tell you everything you asked. You may get little nuggets from individuals but this is a lot and not all of it really applies to everyone. I would suggest just making a topic about one point at a time (ie like what are the best affiliate networks) and just get a real discussion going on. We are all here to talk business not just get bombarded with your question/answer quiz of our businesses.

  • What affiliate site do you use? (Clickbank, Commission Junction, Amazon) ?
    I have been using Comission Junction. I don't have experience with other but CJ takes a while to pay out. Idk if this is normal or not since CJ is the only one I have used.

    How much do you earn monthly?
    It really varies.

    What products do you promote? Physical or Digital?
    Digital

    What niche you promote?
    I sell Premium WordPress Plugins & Themes for cheap. I also do e-commerce and website design.

    How do you drive traffic?
    Social media, SEO, and local classifieds.

    What strategy do you use to promote your affiliate site?
    Affiliate sales are not my primary method of income. I sell mostly WordPress plugins. However, I keep my affiliate links relevant and few. Personally, I think this helps because it comes off as less sales-y.

    How do you pick a niche/product?
    What do you enjoy? Is it profitable? Some people say pursue what you are passionate about. This can work but there has to be somewhat of a market for it.

    How do you SEO the site?
    Lots of ways. Too many to list. Mainly social media and content creation/sharing.

    What plugins do you use on WordPress?
    WooCommerce, Gravity Forms, etc.

    Which niche has been more profitable for you?
    Answered above (WordPress plugins)

    How do you evaluate the profitability of the product?
    Simple analysis. What is selling most and how much effort/resources do I put into selling it?

    How long have you been doing Affiliate business?
    About a year.

    How much time do you spend everyday (hours)?
    I'm constantly working on improving/promoting my site.

    Do you outsource anything in the whole process of setting up a site?
    Since I am a web designer, I don't need to.

    Hope this helps!

    I use SOME affiliate websites, not just one. And I`m earning. And that`s because I did a lot of niche research. For details, hire me as a coach ) JK, you`ll find out more if you don`t ask all that questions, it`s boring to answer all of them.

    I asked all the questions just to get an idea, a rough sketch in my mind. I'm having problem in picking up niche on click bank. I can't make a decision.

      Please excuse the observation that this thread, with its huge number of questions in the OP, was probably not a great way to resolve that issue: very few people will be willing to answer all those questions, and those who are will, as a result, be a small, self-selected sub-group whose answers will be of extremely limited - if any - value to you.

      If you're having problems selecting a niche on ClickBank, here's a little bit of potential food for thought and a few links which may possibly help: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post8561081

      My suggestion: choose a smallish niche which you like, enjoy, know something about and want to communicate with people about over the long term ... as long as it has a range of products available some of which match "sensible product-selection criteria": http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post2161932

    Keep in mind that email marketing works great if you have your own product too. Actually, some say it works better for your own products vs. affiliate marketing.

    As for me, I sell my own products, and I'm also an affiliate. I promote my affiliate products through social media, youtube, and get some search engine traffic as well. However, my traffic from Google isn't as much as what I get through the other sources.

    Edit: I better let you know that Amazon doesn't allow Associates to promote their products in email (or in an ebook either) so if you're an Amazon affiliate, don't risk it.
