Post your own recipe for a single affiliate sale in a new niche where you have no list. For me, I did it this past week - beginning on May 26th. I decided to try promoting Travis Sago's Magic of Making Up. Here's what it took for that very first affiliate sale:
3 Squidoo lenses (one of which was published today and is not yet indexed). The lenses had unique introductions and PLR for the other 2 articles. Took about 15 minutes per lens.
3 Ezine Articles (two of which were published today). For these, I used the PLR articles Travis has sent to his affiliates daily and I just read them and rewrote them in under 5 minutes flat. They were 100% unique - but I didn't have to "think" - I just wrote.
1 WetPaint page using a PLR article that I didn't change one bit. Took about 10 minutes to register it and paste it, etc.
I Tweeted each of the finished products when completed. 70 Minutes. 1 Sale for a $26.30 commission.
I can't wait for more only because I know I'm making a long term commitment to this niche so the more I DO the more I'll MAKE. Not to mention the pages are out there forever now, so they'll continue making me money while I do nothing else.
