I answer similar questions about affiliate marketing and growing online businesses over and over again, so I created this FAQ.
From now on I can easily refer to this page for all questions that have been answered before.
I will update this resource regularly as new questions come up.
How Many Websites Do I Need To Earn A Full Time Income With Affiliate Marketing?
In fact, you could even earn affiliate commissions without having a website at all.
But a single website is enough.
It can potentially generate infinite income.
There is practically no limit to how much money you can earn with one website.
Of course, there are certain requirements and it takes a lot of work and energy to get there, but it is totally possible.
To speed up the process, focus on high value, income producing actions.
What’s The Best Way To Start An Online Business?
First of all, you have to learn and understand the basics of starting, running and growing online businesses.
It’s not a complicated process at all, but you can not skip this phase.
I’d recommend you get my Online Business Blueprint (PDF) here, open and read my emails and follow the video training I send you.
It’s all free, you will learn a lot, and it will get you started in the right direction.
How Can I Become A Successful Affiliate Marketer?
You need to learn the basics first.
==> This will help. It’s 100% free.
How Would You Begin If You Had To Start All Over Again, With Zero Resources?
This is the exact process I’d follow.
I Don’t Earn Money/Commissions From My Website (Yet)!
What can I do to finally start earning an income from my online business?
Chances are, there is a lot you are not doing right now.
To start making money online, you want to focus on high value, income producing tasks.
You’ll need a basic understanding of
- traffic generation,
- media buying,
- the affiliate marketing process,
- direct response marketing principles,
- offer creation, and more.
==> This covers it all.
Then, money will follow as a by-product when you consistently apply these basics and implement high value, income generating tasks.
How Do I Get My Website To Rank High And Quickly On Google (& BING, Yahoo, Etc.)?
Forget the idea of “quick”.
Instead, build something you’re proud of and that’s lasting.
Research and go for low competition keywords where possible.
Focus on consistently adding high quality content to your website.
Keep things up to date.
Always apply what works: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Basics Here.
How Do I Find A Good Niche? What’s The Perfect Niche?
There’s no objective “perfect”.
Here is what is working for me:
Only choose an industry/niche/sub-niche that you have at least an interest in.
Better yet you’re absolutely passionate about it.
Because you will spend a lot of time and energy in that chosen niche.
I’ve made the mistake before to choose a seemingly profitable niche that I had absolutely no personal interest in.
Coming up with ideas, performing keyword research and writing content became an absolute horror.
Congratulations, I created myself a dreadful job! lol
Eventually, I got rid of that site and moved on.
And that’s what I recommend:
Move on to something that you have a passion for.
Plus, make sure that you can find several affiliate offers in your chosen niche.
Otherwise you won’t be able to scale much.
Here’re the ‘classic’ evergreen markets: (too broad to attack, you need to niche-down!)
All three markets have plenty of (sub-)niches.
