I first started by signing up for millions of survey sites and ad clicking sites, but the work was way too hard with little reward. I somehow ran into an e-book on affiliate marketing and found the information to be very interesting.
So I put his method to work. My first site was a fail violating a whole bunch of google rules. It was deindexed quickly. After the first failure, I researched a LOT about SEO and backlinking and the whatnot, and learned some interesting stuff.
My second site ranked very well in the rankings, but it barely got any traffic, and worst of all, it all seemed to be untargeted traffic. Either that, or people searching that product were only interested in browsing and not buying.
My third site was put up a few weeks ago. I did a lot of keyword research with this one and it seemed like a good niche, but school started and I lost a lot of motivation in affiliate marketing. The only I money I had made so far were a couple adsense cents.
I began to lose faith in affiliate marketing and pondered attacking adsense next. However, I came home today from school and got an email saying, Congratulations, you've earned $44 today!
I was super excited! I did not promote the website in any way. I only posted up 2 articles and let it sit there. Easiest money I've ever made. I can get used to this
I started to think this affiliate stuff does not work. However, it obviously does.
Time to promote that site and milk it for all it's worth.
Don't give up guys
