    Hey everyone going to be starting a journey with a micro-niche amazon affiliate site. Will most likely buy a few pre-made sites and start driving traffic using social media.

    I'll be targeting mainly the home accessories niche as in low cost furniture items. I will be using Reddit Dominator to drive traffic to my content as well as other social media. Long-form content will be used as well as strategically structured call to action buttons.

    I'm going to upload my stats daily as well as what I've found has given me the most conversions and traffic. I hope my niche isn't too competitive and I can make some decent conversions.

    My first goal is to make $10 a day by the end of the month and then scale from there and create as many websites as possible.



    Stay tuned!

    Just found a great domain and did some keyword research! Found perfect long-tail keywords for what I'm doing! Will begin finding some good products to promote within these search terms!

    I decided on wordpress for my first site so we'll see how this goes. I have some content ready that's about 2000 words. Stayed up all night last night writing it haha. After I put this content out I'll be using Reddit to drive traffic immediately.

    Also thinking about using Instagram as a traffic source aswell.

    I will update my results using Reddit Dominator immediately.

    Thanks! Glad I've got a follower! I've been learning a lot as I'm going and although I do have some experience with niche sites, I haven't experimented with reddit or Instagram traffic so I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

    Good luck man! I will be following, I have some guides on what you are onto right now.

    How to make your first niche site and How I get cheap content seems to fit your needs right now. My suggestion is to build everything yourself, it doesn't take more than 10-30 minutes! Make sure to stick to your plan and don't give up if you don't make $10/day by the end of this month, that is not that common when we are talking about a long-term business plan like this. :)

    I will definetely give those a read! Yup I'm in this one for the longhaul it's a project I've been delaying for a while so I'm going to keep it going for as long as it takes.

    I am beginning with driving traffic but will dabble in link building later on. I want to do some testing with my content and see how targeted traffic responds, basically testing the potential.

    Update:
    So last night I got about 200 visitors from one reddit post, so special thank you to Reddit Dominator for that! I actually managed to get one conversion and made about $10! So I now am able to see that this plan can work, all I have to do is improve the quality and scale up from here. Once I hit $100 in revenues I'll begin to do some link-building and reach out to other sources of traffic. All I can say is reddit is working. Instagram is a bit premature to begin rating it so I'll let that one breathe for a little bit.

    Nice one buddy, I'm glad redditdominator is helping you.

    Is that $10 commission or is that cost of the product?

    Just curious.

    How many searches do your long tail keywords roughly get a month? I'm also interested in starting something like this, so I'm just curious what minimum number of searches you targeting for

    Though your question covers an important aspect, he is using reddit to drive traffic, but reddit is the fastest to rank, so that might be one of the factors.

    Well I found my keywords are decently searched, none over 10000 which is what I'm aiming for. However, right now I don't find keywords to be too important as I will be using social media as my main drivers rather than relying on google page rank (which I will worry about once I finish optimizing my content). Today I spent the day writing some content and researching some ways to monetize to the fullest extent.

    I wasn't able to get much done over the weekend, I completely revamped my site and niche and have just been writing content since then. I want to fill up the website with as much content as I can and then begin driving traffic to select pages and the most important content.

    I've continued to write content and plan out my strategy and have been doing a lot of research on placements and writing that works. I also am thinking about starting a CPA offer landing page to generate capital right away as I don't know how long this will take me. I want to make this website as long term as I can so I'm trying to plan it outright as much as I can and make the quality as high as possible so it will last.

    My short-term goals for this site are less about money and quick gains but more about creating something that will attract people and keep them. The income from this particular stream doesn't matter at the moment.

    I'm glad I have Reddit Dominator though as it allows me to "test" my content and approach right away with just a few clicks, as well as generate some conversions in the meantime.
