Hey Folks,

Would you like a little bit of inspiration today?

I wanted to show you what YOU can achieve with hard work and dedication.

So..

Here is a photo of a spare car I just bought (Volvo S40) the other day..

Entirely from Amazon Commissions!


There is no secret sauce to online marketing...

All you need to do is:
  • Proper Niche Research
  • Proper Keyword Research
  • Lots of Content on and Off Your Site
  • Positive Attitude
Now off you go and make some commissions!

Totally awesome Jay... Love a Volvo... They are built like a tank. You will probably have that when you're old and grey... unless you get bored and want a sportier car, Like a Lamborghini. :) If you do please send me a picture. Thanks for all the hard work you put into our classes. I never thought I would be able to make my own website. and It's because instructors like you, Kyle and Carson and so many Ambassadors and encouragement from the community, that makes it possible. I love it here and am on my third website building content every chance I get. Could you please tell me what you think of my first website. livingsuperhealthy.com I have a long way to go with more content but tell me what else I need. Before I put it on social media , I want to make sure it is Really good. THX, :) Judy

I keep trying to get my Amazon products to show up on this Ignite Builder site and none of the tech support there can help me. I'm trying to do an Amazon AStore maybe I shouldn't do that. What kind of products do you promote on amazon? Is your amazon affiliate website here at WA so I could look at it?

Thanks very much,
Barbara

bjdluna Premium
Hi Craig,
Thanks so much for that video! It was very straight forward and easy to follow. Now that I think about it I may have had that ad blocker on and that might be the source of my trouble, I hope. So you have just picked out several individual products to post? How did you decide which products to promote was it based on their best sellers? I am trying to make an aStore that is embedded in my healthydogsupply.com web site and I narrowed down my categories to be dog health products so hopefully it was just the ad blocker. Thanks so much for that video it really helped a lot!

A successful blogger has to build a following and the easiest way to do that is by submitting articles to article directories and social media blogs, and doing guest authoring on other industry blogs to build up name recognition and inbound links.

how do you find the keywords for these items on amazon? I've tried building one product websites for amazon products but all the keywords have high competition. Well the products on the top selling list anyways.

You can use The keyword tool here at WA or check out jaaxy.com. You are aiming for less than 400 QSR using either one of these tools.

Beats the heck out of your Golf Cart. As an old trucker friend of mine used to say. Keep the Shiny side up and the dirty side down and your good to go.

Congrats. Nice ride. This is your wife's car right? You still get to drive the Golf. ;)

Hello, I was wondering what you mean by off your site?
Reply
magistudios Premium
Hey There - Off Your Site would mean content that resides NOT on your own site.
For example: StreetArticles.com
You would write content on StreetArticles.com and link it back to your site.
Reply
mdonnelly21 Premium
Oh Ok, thanks for the info.

Renni Premium
Workin' on it and steppin' it UP!!!

I realized recently...sort of an epiphany set off by the second Live Case Study...that even tho I don't know as much as you, Jay, or others with more technological know-how, I can still make money at this. That is so cool and it can only get better as I do learn more but it's not necessary to learn it all by tomorrow. Especially if I'm already making it work.

It took TWO case studies before than sunk in...LOL :)

CONGRATS on the new car...it's Beautiful!!!
