Over 2k a month in 6 months

Last Update: December 01, 2017

Alright, November is over and it far exceeded my expectations. In the beginning of October I wrote on a piece of paper what I thought I would earn each month in the next 6 months. For November I put $800 as worst case scenario and $1000 as best case scenario.

To my surprise I made over $2,000 and earned around $2300 from Amazon's affiliate program from the website I started back in early June. That came from 700 sales and I had around 25,000 unique visitors too.

I put $2,000 for December and hopefully I'm pleasantly surprised at the end of December too.

I have a very specific keyword strategy I use (best of list with the year) and it's worked really well for me. I've struggled to make money before from Affiliate marketing and I will be creating a full training here at WA that covers everything from niche selection, keyword research, content and optimization very soon to help anyone having issues(probably in the next month or two I'll have that ready).

I've written about my strategy a lot in my blog posts and if you want the jist of it you can read these two blog posts:

That is super and congratulations to you on your success. I am sure that the training will help a lot of people and I will be having a look as well.

It sounds like you have a system to supercharge the Amazon affiliate program. That is a segment I have not moved into, but I am sure that there will be takeaways for what I AM into!

Cheers and Happy Holidays!

Hi Dylan that's awesome to hear. My strategy has been the same like you suggested, I find that the potential is a lot broader, content and product wise (as well as my ability to give advice)

I do a 1:3 ratio when it comes to posts/pages with affiliate links. So for every 3 posts I create, I create 1 post that features affiliate links, like a product review, or a best of list, or even a "how to" post that actually is a post about a product to buy. The other posts are generally "how to" "what is" etc.

I'm wondering what you think about choosing keywords for "best" lists. A lot of the times even though they get great traffic, it's competition is also kind of high.

Either way, been tending toward writing longer posts. My last "list" post for products was a complete buyers guide featuring very high end to budget level or a specific kind of product in pro audio, totaling over 13,000 words! Which took me over a week to publish. Usually though 6,000 to 7,000 words is becoming the norm for me. And for my other posts it's always within the range of like 2000 to 3000. Unless I doing a post over 5000 words long, I don't end up posting more than twice a week.

My site is just touching the 4th month tomorrow (December 2nd). Saw my first income in the second month (just 10 dollars) and more last month (13 dollars). Hoping to get a breakthrough buy about 6 months.

Here's a surprised, even though my niche (pro-audio) has nothing to do with WA, I've gotten a referral through my site because I put a WA affiliate link in my about section. Intended for people to clink on if they wanted to learn more about me and how I built my niche business. Totally no-sell!

Anyway, let me know what you think you think about "best ..." KWs. I'm at the stage where I'm wondering if it even matters to watch the competition... and just write massive guides.

If you're writing massive guides like that you don't have to worry about competition. You're going to rank for hundreds of keywords when your write that way.

You can go about 60% best of lists and 40% how to articles. If you're writing really long posts you won't get hit with a penalty.

Have you gone through the WA training and have you read the two links I posted at the bottom of this post?
Reply

Reply
dylanrieger Premium
You'd really have to go through the training to understand any of this
Reply
SO YOU CANT HELP ME?
Reply
i have done the training!
only premium things not done!
Reply
dylanrieger Premium
There's a lot you're missing.. nothing I would tell you would make sense. I don't really have the time to teach you everything
Reply
so i have to make it premium! you are not really answering! Do i have to make it premium and complete all thes tasks?
Reply
dylanrieger Premium
I would go premium and complete all the tasks. Once you understand affiliate marketing more I can help you out better
Reply
so if i go premium and complete all the tasks will you help me then? i know about affiliate marketing but the site confusing me!
Reply
dylanrieger Premium
I'll help you if you make it through the training. If the two links i posted at the bottom of this post make no sense to you then you still have a lot to learn about affiliate marketing.
Reply
they sure make sense and i undersand them! i have already done these things! I actually want to know more practical things like how to start marketing! from my site or either social media

It took me a couple years to learn all this stuff. If you made anything in your first year that's more than I did. This website is only 6 months old but I've been trying for years!

There's a lot hungry affiliates here so I don't really like sharing my website in the open here. I use a free theme and it's nothing special looking. Understanding the principles of how I did it is most important and you can learn those principles by reading the two posts I linked to at the bottom.
