Hello BHW ppls, Herewith, we are writing this journey to make you understand what we are doing in the affiliate program and small development. I know we have the time to update this journey daily so we are writing this special journey for you. Our goal is simple. Reach $5k+ per month by January 2018. The site is going well, however, my initial aim with that journey was to show everyone how it's done. I wanted to show the process involved and document everything (like expenses + earning). Already we have a fitness blog with few contents. So, we jumped into it by developing a blog that utilizes affiliate program. Our Plan: Monetization by Amazon affiliate & Other affiliate programs as well. Targeting Fitness & Diet (Inner multiple niches with low competition). Upload content regularly (10k words per week). We will be backlinking with link strategy and outreach. We will document everything we do, from content to linking to finances Expenses so far: No cost for domain $80 Hosting with SSL $100 - $200 on content (weekly) What we've done so far: Identified few inner niches Identified more low competition keywords Follow up few competitors strategy Registered domain Installed Wordpress with a very simple and review theme 128,755 published words of content (Today status) Optimized site for on-page SEO The Plan: We are planning to do some link strategies (Guest Post Outreach, Web 2.0, Blog post, Infographic, eBooks, Article Submission and more). It’s the most cost-effective way to rank a site. To reach a valuation at $5K+ I might need to expand the site. It’s a niche site right now towards inner products. But we are sure we can reach $5K+ per month slowly with the products. The total searches for the keyword term we are targeting will be 100000+ We will be using these anchor percentages; 30% naked, 30% brand, 20% LSI, 10% exact and 10% generic.
