    Hi folks,

    My sister is "a writer", and I was so proud of her getting a degree in "Creative Writing and Media" that i decided to create a blog for her and explained that she can mix 2 of her passions, "creative writing" with "beauty/makeup/hair etc." and make some pocket money while she pursues a career.

    I built her a Wordpress site, designed it appropriately and threw on a few affiliate revenues such as Adsense, Commission Junction, ClickBank and Amazon.

    After some time, her website is now getting a fair few hits (nothing out of this world, but a nice number nevertheless). And since the Beauty Niche is so competitive and saturated, I was happy to see the number of hits (and clicks) she's been getting having looked on Googles Adsense reports. Bearing in mind that to be honest, i'm not driving traffic to her site, if at all really - its all natural traffic.

    Google's stats are nice but she hasn't been getting much from the other affiliate networks.

    Can anyone make any recommendations for any Networks that offer good products and offers that will suit this Niche, and what would be the best way to drive the traffic into clicking these offers (and buying affiliated products)? I'm more interested in the affiliate networks and techniques at the moment. Driving traffic will have to come when I have more time on my hands.

    Any help would be greatfull.

    Thanks.

    PS. PM me for the URL if you want to have a nose at the site.

    I've sold a decent amount of beauty products from Amazon. There are some CPA offers and clickbank products but if she is giving out a lot of good information affiliate sales like Amazon could be more profitable.

    I know you're not interested in driving traffic for her right now but you really should introduce her to the google keyword tool if you haven't. Including a keyword in the title of her post that has less than 500 exact searches will bring in more traffic without you having to worry about link building or driving social traffic. If you have a good site Google will rank you pretty easily for those low volume keywords. It is the easiest ways for newbs to get started with SEO if they don't want to do link building.

    The Beauty niche is a very lucrative niche to say the least. MarketHealth has lots of offers.
