    Hi

    I am new to this internet marketing and have been part of the site for a few years lurking. I have read numerous methods and articles and only now have decided to dedicate my time to an internet based income.

    I would like to get started with amazon associates but I am struggling with the best way to make the site. I am trying to build a review website from scratch but feel like I am reinventing the wheel.

    SO my questions are:


    • Should I acquire a template and edit that or continue making the website from scratch?
    • How long does it usually take someone to put a review site up?
    • Would I be better off outsourcing on fiverr or something similar?

    As for keyword research I haven't done that because I would like to just get a site up and running first. The niche I would be targeting is pretty saturated but it's what I know and that's a start.

    thanks

    Going with Fiverr can not help what you are expecting better know the trick and DIY.

    that's good I can scratch fiverr off the list of options. I just feel like I am spending all my time on learning and not getting anywhere.

    I have that one bookmarked! It has some very good information in it and I am trying to base what I am doing now on that, I'm thinking that perhaps my planning is what's letting me down. Spending my time looking at code without a direction is probably holding me back

    Instead of wasting time you should take action.
    What will happen either you will end up wasting 10 bucks for a domain

    but think if you end up making $$$ a month
    Contact Hekke he runs a Amazon Skype Group which is flooded with good information.

    Cheers

    I think once you get started you will realize that in order to do it right it really will take time and dedication that you did not see from the beginning. It might be easy and casual for some but, don't believe the majority of Amazon Associates claiming to be blogging on the beach and sleeping to $. Most people make pennies from it. The few who actually put in the hard work do alright.
