    It is a tough question that might take several pages to answer even for the gurus. The best and less costing way could be face book viral?

    You mean a face book ad? I plan on running a face book ad for the first 2 weeks, at a $5 a day limit.

    Go for pinterest. It is a great source of potential traffic. Pinterest traffic converts more than any other referral traffic.

      Any reason you have chosen phones, one of the most competitive products on the internet?

      My recommendation, for what its worth, is to dig deep, deep in to amazon and find something that is a little less competitive.

      Also commissions on phones are 4% capped at 25% and there is no earnings on phone plans.

        I second that. Too many people make the mistake of choosing obvious, overcrowded niches. You could rank much higher using more obscure niches. I remember one of my clients asking me to write reviews about portable hammocks stands once, I don't know how well it went for him, but that's a way better niche selection in my opinion than something generic like elliptical machines per instance.

        Instead of going for an amazon store, you could start a lifestyle blog and include a review section or link it to your store. This way, you can attract people to your blog organically and use the trust you've build up to recommend products and generate sales.

          If you want a SEO shortcut, you can buy an expiring domain that already has a lot of backlinks, domain authority, page authority, Page Rank, MOZ rank, Majestic SEO backlinks or whatever the flavor of the month is.

          However, I must warn you that Google takes a suspicious view of any site that is expanding very quickly, that is especially with duplicate content. Therefore I would be careful how fast you expand the site.

    Can i say something, no sound so I take that as a yes.
    Some will love to slap me.
    Let me tell you what not to do.

    DONT DO AMAZON. lol

    really avg 5 percent commission and after all the work and cost of getting traffic you make probably 2 percent.

    Study Jvzoo, clickbank, warriorplus. Promote products here, Alot of us pay 100 percent yes you HEARD ne right, we pay 100 percent for the upfront product.

    Man that sounds good doesn't it. 100 percent to be loyal to us.

    What is Warrior plus ?

    • Profile picture of the author hustlinsmoke
      warriorplus.com jvzoo.com clickbank.com but I would stay with jvzoo or w + cause the payout is much faster.
      Not hard to market either even without a list. If you need specifics let me help just pm me. One more affiliate for us is good and don't mind at all.

      Strategy that work for me:

      1. Upload thousands of product to your affiliate website.

      2. Make sure you have done onpage seo and get website indexed by Google, Yahoo, Bing

      3. Get organic traffic from long tail keywords.

      4. Profit!!!
      you can get lots of traffic hmm but do they convert?
      Once a while I can get many clicks , UV ..but sadly no sales..

    Why don't you ask this other people have successfully made money using the same software you're going to use?

    Most products have success stories. Ask those people, they should have the best information about successful in what you're doing.
