I answer similar questions about starting and growing an online business over and over again, so I decided to create this FAQ page to which I can easily refer to.
I will update this resource regularly over time as new questions come up.
How many websites do I need to earn a full time income with affiliate marketing?
A single website 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? How can I become an affiliate marketer? And how would you begin if you had to start all over again?
First of all, you have to learn and understand the basics of starting, running and growing an online business.
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), 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.
I don’t earn money 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.
Then, money will follow as a by-product when you consistently apply these high value, income generating tasks.
How do I get my website to rank high and quickly on Google, BING, Yahoo and co?
Forget the idea of “quick”. Instead, build something you’re proud of.
Research and go for low competition keywords where possible.
Focus on consistently adding high quality content to your website.
Stick to and always apply what works: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) basics.
How do I find a good niche? What’s the perfect niche?
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. Why?
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 becomes a chore.
Congratulations, you created yourself a dreadful job!
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.
I have a burning question that is not answered here!
No problem, just get in touch with me here. I’ll answer your questions and get back to you as soon as possible.
You can also get on my email list here and just hit reply on any email you get from me.
