How To Build A Successful Amazon Affiliate Site – The Ultimate Guide

Earlier this year, I launched my first my first Amazon affiliate site. I had heard from some internet “gurus” that it was no longer possible to make money through Amazon affiliate sites, and I wanted to see if this were actually true.

6 months later, the site is making a decent amount of money (nothing extraordinary, but a good amount for the effort I’ve put into it) so I wanted to share the knowledge with you. Here’s exactly what I did to build a successful Amazon affiliate site! [Read more…]

How Publishing An eBook Can Push Your Blog To New Levels

I recently published my first eBook ever. Not only was it an incredible learning experience, but it has helped my blog in so many ways. In fact, the benefits that have come from publishing this book far outweigh the money the book has actually made.

The benefits have been so numerous that I have already written another book for another blog of mine, and plan on publishing several more in 2015. If you haven’t yet published your own eBook, this article may just change your mind. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of publishing an eBook for your blog.

Are You Preparing Your Blog For The Christmas Season?

In December, every day is Christmas for affiliate marketers.

Money is being spent left and right. Employees are getting their Christmas bonuses and are using all of that extra money to buy presents for this year’s holiday season. Many are also spending extra money on themselves. In either case, money is being thrown around like it’s nothing.

Best of all, this type of spending is going to continue on throughout January as people take back their Christmas presents and purchase different ones.

It’s the happiest time of the year. Especially for bloggers like you and me – if you can capitalize on it.  [Read more…]

Problem Solving vs Hobby Niches – Which Are More Profitable?

The majority of profitable niches are divided into two main categories. Problem solving, and hobbies. The problem is, people have hard time deciding which they should enter into. This is understandable – it’s a big choice, and there are conflicting opinions everywhere.

One set of marketers will say that anything but problem solving niches are a waste of time, as buyers are desperate to solve their problems and are very willing to pay for an instant solution. Another set of marketers will insist that hobby niches are far more profitable, because the visitors that visit your site are more likely to return and purchase from you multiple times.

While both can be extremely profitable, problem solving and hobby niches are often tackled in drastically different ways. For this reason, we must dig a little bit further before we can decide which category would be more profitable for you. [Read more…]

Blogging from Paradise: How to Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting Book Review

If I had told you that someone could write an 80 page e-Book just on blog commenting, you’d probably look at me like I was crazy. Blog commenting, really? It’s something that seemed so simple. Something so small, it’s often overlooked.

However, this book opens your eyes as to how large of an impact blog commenting can actually have. Here is my review for Blogging From Paradise: How To Build an Online Empire through Blog Commenting, by Ryan Biddulph. [Read more…]

If You’re A Jack Of All Trades, You’re Bound To Fail

They say if you’re a jack of all trades, you’re a master of none.

I’m sure you likely know that are tons of different ways to make money online today. Blogging. CPA. eBooks. eCommerce. Freelance. YouTube. The list goes on and on.

Today, we have more opportunities available to us than ever before. Today, we’re no longer limited with our options – anyone can start chasing any tactic they wish. This is both a blessing and a curse.

Today, we are facing an ongoing issue called information overload. We have so much information available to us, we don’t know what to do with it. Our attention spans and our ability to focus is declining at a rapid rate. This is bad enough already, but it gets significantly worse when we combine information overload with our emotions.

We humans are emotional creatures. We like to feel. We get excited when we hear about new prospects that can make us money. As a result, some people end up chasing these prospects relentlessly. When they don’t work, they jump at the next opportunity that is presented to them without giving it much thought. This is a huge issue. [Read more…]

If You’re Obsessing Over SEO, Stop!

When I began blogging seriously back in 2010, I made the same mistake so many others are doing at this very moment. I wasted an incredible amount of time doing what I thought was right, only to discover that my time could’ve been better spent elsewhere. I spent countless hours trying to bring visitors to my website, but I was doing it the wrong way.

My mistake? Trying to rank as highly as I could in search engines.  [Read more…]

Starting A New Niche Site From Scratch – An Experiment

I’ve always felt that with enough dedication, anyone can start a new website and succeed. Even now in 2014, while ranking is difficult and expert marketers seem to have made it challenging to compete. Some say making money online today is impossible.  I’ve set out to prove them wrong.

However, I want to make sure this experiment is fair. Therefore, I’m going to level the playing field. I’m going to put myself in a brand new blogger’s shoes. This new niche site is going to be completely anonymous. This means I’m not going to use my Author Rank, current followers, my email list, or my current websites to drive traffic to this one. Other than knowledge, I will have no advantage over someone who is just beginning blogging today. [Read more…]
