    I've got the niche, I've got the keyword in the domain, and I've got the vision. The product has 500k results in open search, 210k in quotes, relatively soft competition at the top and plenty of items for addon and cross sales (both physical and digital).

    I have experience in managing brick and mortar stores that carry millions in inventory and push millions in sales, I just need to find a way to translate that digitally. I don't want to handle money or inventory just yet, I simply want to create a hub for a targeted niche to funnel through and earn my commission.

    Of course the best way to learn will be trial and error, but what should I avoid or mimic when I'm first starting out? I'll be doing my best to accomplish some semblance of success here.

    What about plugins and themes? I have shopperpress, though it may be more than I need right now since its focus is on making direct sales. I've also got my eyes on wpzon to help automate most of the process.

    Any other tips or helpful advice here? This is the first project I'm taking seriously after spinning my wheels for so long, and I want to do it all the way.

    There is currently a WSO called "The Physical Affiliate " That centers around what your searching for. I know a few people who are into this and loved the WSO, I personally dont mess with Physical Product marketing so I aint bought it. Alot of time these things are shared But I have no idea if this one was or will be. Maybe worth the $97

    Thanks searchwiser, looks like he released a pdf wso ($17) back in august and released the videos ($97 + free pdfs) early last month. If I've got the right author his name is Jan Roos.

    Interesting looking stuff, can't seem to find a free release of it anywhere though. Not in a position to purchase the video set just yet, but I'll follow his outline and see if I can't figure it out on my own.

    I picked up wpzon and it actually seems pretty powerful, it'll definitely allow for some good flexibility and mass reproduction in different niches.

    Wish me luck.

    There are a few different plugins for Amazon Associate marketers:

    - Associate-O-Matic

    - Reviewazon

    - WP Zon Builder (I have heard a lot of good reviews on this one)

    Hope that helps :)

    Thanks for the response Wiz. I have wpzon builder and it definitely looks to be a great tool (got it for $49 from the author from a promotion he was running). I built a practice page, but my host has been having persistent stability issues so I switched to another provider. Once that's all settled I'll start churning some of these pages out and hopefully start seeing some results in the coming weeks.

    Best of luck to you. You can make some great money as an Amazon Associate. Especially if you promote the higher ticket items such as electronic products (Plasma TV's, etc.)
