Join me and my friends in our Make Money Online group chat here: https://discord.gg/yW3EnWM

---------------------------------------------

I'm originally a programmer turned game developer, who specialized in HTML5 games & mobile games.

I started creating apps under my own name, working hard for over a year to monetize them. While I did make a little money off of that, it really wasn't anything substantial.

The problem was marketing.

I actually used to do affiliate marketing many years ago, before I finished college and started working as a software engineer. I even had a part-time office job as online marketing consultant during my last year of university.

But fast forward a few years later, I was trying to get my own apps out into the world... It made me realize, once again, how absolutely crucial it is to learn to market & sell.

I feel like, just getting the attention on what it is that you do, I have to do 80% marketing and that leaves 20% technical work - at most.

So I started a blog about online marketing, called FromClickToSale: https://fromclicktosale.com

And if you are interested in my old HTML5 games, you can play them on my website for free: https://browsergameshub.com

Hi, James. Thanks for your help in live chat. I also program... but no game development (yet ;)

"I feel like, just getting the attention on what it is that you do, I have to do 80% marketing and that leaves 20% technical work - at most."

So true, my friend. I feel like 95% of life is marketing, including networking, and both elude me. lol.

I'll pop into your discord chat sometime as well as take a look at your blog. Much success to you!

Hi Shantell, thank you for your kind comment - I'm always super excited to meet other programmers who also realize we are all in the marketing business! :D It's good to share the pain, lol.

Yes please, join discord anytime! I cannot constantly check WA, but my discord is always running. I've met many cool people on there in the game dev space, so I figured it could help in affiliate marketing too.

I remember back when I was creating my very first games... If I didn't have friends to show my progress, or simply a community to exchange ideas, I don't know if I could have fought through all the struggle and challenges. That's why I love WA so much, it has the community we all so desperately need to push through.

Whatever you need, feel free to reach out!

Talk again soon,
James

HI, James

I’ve read all the posts on your "fromclicktosale.com" website. They are very good and very inspiring. Thank you!

May I ask a question? I am Chinese living in China. Do you think my target customers should be Chinese only, or everyone in the world?Because only this problem is clarified can I decide whether to build a Chinese website or an English website, or both Chinese and English.

Thank you for your help!

Hi Harry! I don't know how exactly the internet is handled in China. I only "hear" things about censorship and firewalls, preventing certain pages and content to be seen in China.

All I know is that Jerry Huang @JerryHuang here on WA is very successful and he recently started to blog specifically for Chinese people. So that seems to work!

From personal experience, it is hard for me to give reliable advice. Ask yourself maybe these questions:
- Can I write very good English?
- Can I actually get paid my commissions, if I'm living in China?
- Can everyone in the world access my website?

If the answer is "No" to one of the questions above, then I would probably stick to the Chinese market.

This is just my guess, how I would approach it - I'm really not suited to give reliable advice to your specific situation! Try to talk to Jerry maybe, or search online what other Chinese affiliate marketers say.

Hello James And Welcome To Wealthy Affiliate.

Since you joined you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing could be a steep learning curve and there will always be something new to learn.

You must keep referring to the training (it does get updated from time to time).

If you get really stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 500 blogs I have published within WA.

Feel free to send me a message anytime you get stuck and I will endeavour to point you in the right direction.

You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.

Have a great day.

Many times when I want more info about a training, I use the search bar at the top - and there's usually a result with one of your blogs! With 500+ blog posts it's easy to come across your guides.

I didn't know that liking is part of the WA activity level! However, I liked your reply because it's truly helpful :D

Take care and I hope we talk again soon!

No probs James and as far as I'm concerned its 100% ok not to bother what your rank is within WA.
You are here to learn and make money and that must take priority over anything else.

There are many members who after they join become fixated on what their rank is and become obsessed on becoming an Ambassador.
It takes a lot of work to become one and maintain that level and at the end of the day it wont make them any money.

9 times out of 10 their learning curve and therefore their possible income potential suffers and they leave.

You do what's important to you and you can't go wrong.
Have a good one.

Hi Kudakwashe! I'm happy you've achieved all your dreams through WA! I hope I'll follow in your footsteps over the coming years and become a superaffiliate also :) What I like the most about WA is having a clear structure, the fact that I always know exactly what I have to do today. Now I can spend more time creating, and less time planning.

Wow you are here since 2012 and I never connected before here. It shows how truly big this network is. Unless, of course, you have returned after a long time here.

Either way, impressive to see an HTML5 web games programmer here. Nice games too, I tried a couple.

Yeah, we can be great creators of stuff, but if nobody comes to our website, it is pretty useless. The SEO stuff taught here will help a great deal, but maybe not so much for your games.
There is on the other hand plenty of stuff here on the platform to learn to also be able to promote those again. Social media is for example a great solution to that.

I've checked out your marketing related website, but that one is still under construction I guess. It had a couple of 404s and an empty start-guide.

Nice to meet you and now I am following you.

Hey Steven! Thanks for your comment & for checking out my websites :D

Yeah games is not really considered a profitable niche for affiliate marketers. It's pretty much pure entertainment, which is a whole different type of business - at least that's what I've been told. I think the more profitable angle is to make tutorials & guides for others to learn programming. You might have noticed I'm promoting Udemy courses on Mobile App development there, but so far my readers were not interested in that.

Fun games are cool to keep people engaged on a website, but it's also very hard to rank a game page because they have no text, meaning no content that helps your SEO. 90% of that site's traffic is going on my tutorial posts - my games get hardly any plays at all, not even by those who've read a tutorial.

On your profile it says you are on Twitch! That's so cool! What do you stream?

Yes the marketing related site is brand new. But there shouldn't be any 404's... The eBook & "How To" pages are empty, but the blog itself should be up and running with 1 blog post. Weird that you got a 404, I'll have to look into that.

Thanks for the follow, I hope we'll stay in touch!

Cheers

Gaming can definitely be affiliated, mostly the reviews on hardware, but there are also the affiliate programs that share commissions on game sales.

Getting traffic to a site with games is absolutely possible, but it requires you to either:
1) produce SEO rankable content on that site alongside the games, such as blogs.
2) or use other platforms and media to push traffic towards it. Be it advertising or just a very good use of social media, it is all possible. Most of it is relatively cheap, especially when you just utilize (and figure out) social media.
3) In your case, especially if you happen to have made games on steam, you could even push the games to influencers through platforms like keymailer or woovit. Streamers will pick it up for a try and stream it perhaps or create youtube reviews. In this latter, you could also just reach out to influencers in the field personally through DM's on insta or twitter.

As for tutorials, yes they do well on the internet, but that attracts a different crowd. You might want to split that off, or just make an own section on the website, so that you can separate the gamers from the wannabe developers.

On Twitch I have a very small appearance and following at the moment. I do hope to use it for programming teaching in the future or to reach out to my brand audience to answer questions. I stream (not all that regular) some games like Minecraft and Forager among others. It used to be every Tuesday and Thursday in the Oslo timezone, but I have gotten too busy with side-hustles, so it is more likely sometimes for now. Might stream a bit tomorrow.

I figured that you fixed that one little error I found - or it was a weird way of error on my end. Not sure. It was somewhere in the read-more I think. Works fine now.

Thank you for the insight, Steven!

You are spot on, the audience that plays games and the audience that wants to program them, are completely different! I think that's why the website ended up in such a weird spot: It was trying to serve both - and in the end nobody feels at home.

What I meant to say above is that getting traffic for a pure browser games website is super hard, for all the reasons you mentioned also.

So I think a blog with programming tutorials would have a much easier time ranking and generating traffic.

I understand your Twitch situation - it is very time consuming to stream! I've never played Minecraft (shame on me) but I had a quick look at the Forager demo when it was still in early development because I was following the developer on Twitter.

And hugeeeee thanks for confirming that the 404 errors are gone on my online marketing blog!! I really appreciate that.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
