    Hey guys, so I decided to create this IM journey about my journey to achieving $100 pr. day via my affiliate website.

    I have been working with IM for 3 years now, having various several successful webshops and an Instagram agency, although these were not really steady incomes, as I didn't put enough energy into it, it was a too half-assed approach I had towards these income streams, I was just fiddling around figuring things out, but I learned a lot from it.

    Although my goal now is to have this semi-passive income from an affiliate website, which is going to promote products from Amazon and Clickbank.

    Also, I am currently writing my own e-book on my niche topic, which is going to be one of the only e-books on the niche topic and is going to be the best and most valuable e-book.
    When finished writing this (Within 1 week from today the 06/03/2019), I will be promoting this e-book on my website at the price of $7.97.

    I created the website 1 year ago, had some motivation for a few weeks, made some articles, got 2 sales via Amazon Affiliate back then, but never reached 3 sales, so the account got closed after 180 days. Although, now I am going all in on this, and spending a lot of my spare time and even school time on developing this site even more, will be posting minimum 1 article every week.

    It currently has around 15 medium quality articles, some really HQ, but most are average quality.

    I am getting around 500-1000 visitors pr. month. Most come from organic google search and several posts I've made in different forums.

    My plan is just to create as much valuable content as possible, focusing on some good KW's.
    To get more and more traffic.
    I'm planning on starting a podcast on my niche topic as well, to get more traffic.

    So right now I am at let's say 700 visitors pr. month (approximately), without much work done, other than a few articles. By going ALL IN on this project, I should be able to get atleast 10.000 visitors+ pr. month at the end of 2019, and let's say that 2% of these visitors buy my e-book for $7.97 .. That's 200 sales pr month which is = $1594 .. / 31 = $51 pr. day ... By tweaking the advertising of my e-book and testing out different things, let's say I get a sale percentage of 4% (400 sales pr. month) (which I think is doable), that is then 400 sales pr month which is = $3188 .. / 31 = $102 pr. day

    That is the goal for now.
    And remember people will most likely also buy Amazon and CB products on the website.

    ...
    Current income:
    Amazon Affiliate = $0 :weep:
    Clickbank = $0 :weep:
    E-Book = $0 :weep:
    ...
    Questions..
    - Is it worth building out a network of web 2.0's?
    If yes, should these web 2.0's be about the specific articles I post on my money site, or should they just be general about the niche I am writing in or a sub-niche to my niche?

    Follow the thread! I will be posting more than once weekly! :D

    Thanks for the encouragement!
    When you say PBN, do you mean building Web 2.0's or buying others PBN links?
    I think it's very expensive to build out your own PBN.

    No, I am just planning on integrating a payment system of some sort, I don't know if Stripe can be used for this, but I am sure I can find something :)

    About the Web 2.0's, how many do you suggest I create?
    I'm thinking about creating 50 web 2.0's over the course of 1-2 months, to make it look natural.
    These web 2.0's won't be connected in any way.
    I imagine them to have good on-site SEO and 3-5 articles of 500-1000 words each.
    In an interval between 14 and 60 days, I will be linking out to my money website.

    Thanks for the encouragement btw!

    Update

    Starting to get a lot of clicks on my Amazon Associates account!
    Most days have been 0 or 1 click.
    Yesterday boomed with 21 clicks, no sales though.
    Probably because I have been posting in a lot of forums, web2.0's, Quora etc. + Backlinks have been delivered and more are pending to get released!
    ..
    I figured I have to individually track every link so I can see where the click is coming from, so I can optimize the link layout even more, for better conversion rate.

    ..
    I got my hands on the affiliate marketing course "Project 24", by Income School, which I am currently going through now, to be sure I am doing everything the right way.
    Excited for this!
    ..
    I'm working on a 7.000 word long article, that will probably get done tomorrow, this article will hopefully knock out my biggest competitor on the most popular KW.
    Excited to see the rankings for this article in the next 30-60 days.
    ..
    My e-book project is kinda dead atm, I am confused about what affiliate product I should be selling.
    Although I think I am analyzing too much.. (Analysis paralysis)..
    ..
    Earnings total = $0.

    Update.
    I have started to rank pretty good for a lot of big keywords.
    Getting more and more visitors for each day.
    Some more than others, it seems like my SERP rankings fluctuate a little for each day, sometimes on page 1, sometimes I can't even find my article on Google, sometimes on page 2 etc.

    Anyways, I finally got sales!

    Total stats as of 24th of April 2019

    Amazon Affiliate = $2.10 :cool:
    Clickbank = $0 :weep:

    ..
    My thoughts and actions on creating an e-book, is currently on standby.
    I got other plans for a good lead magnet and product
    ..
    I am at the moment offering a free cheatsheet with some tips, as a lead magnet, launched it yesterday, and I have a feeling that many people are going to convert.
    It's just an emergency solution right now, as I will do my best to catch as many e-mails as possible, while creating a really good lead magnet.

    - If you have any good ideas or tips/tricks, for how to create a good lead magnet, please share your knowledge with me and the rest of the followers of this thread, by replying to this comment!

    __
    Have been working hard the last couple of weeks publishing articles, right now a bit passive as I am also doing other freelancing work to save up some money.
    Planning on creating a content board soon, with ready content ideas, headlines etc. so they're ready to write.
    The goal is to have over 200 posts at the end of 2019.
