A lot of people on here promote products from Amazon, physical products. They get into these micro niches that get about 1-2 sales a day, and are happy with that $3 commission from a $30 product, they sometimes scale it up to about 3-4 sites, and end up getting on average under $20/day. Now to be fair, to some of the users here (I'm looking at you China, Philippines, India, and part of Eastern Europe!) it is quite a lot of money. The fact that you could make $600/month, where an average person in Ukraine makes $200/month is quite an accomplishment! It requires minimal money to be put upfront (heck! if you start a tumblr account, it is FREE!) and slowly but surly you can make a living. But what about instead of making that $3 commission, why not own the entire pie? Screw the pie, why not own the entire bakery? Here is what I'm talking about... (2 REAL EXAMPLES) I use to promote Amazon for quite a small niche. The niche use to be "Racoon Tail Keychains" - They tail was 100% fake (because here in Canada you can't harm animals) and sold anywhere between $12 and $30 for the more err "high-end" one. Cool, minimal profit, maximum stress. Checking everyday if those little suckers would sell, and just make enough to buy a couple of beers at the club every weekend. The lifestyle of the rich and famous! Second thing I was promoting on Amazon were Slim Wallets / Card Wallets / Money Wallet Clips - This niche is booming like you wouldn't believe it! Mostly targeted towards males who love big cellphones (think of Android S4/5) but now can't fit their wallet, keys and cellphone into their pockets. Cellphone? They need. Keys? They NEED! Wallet... Well... All they really need are the cards, and a few cash bills. So they reduce the size of their wallets. $30 - $100 a unit, an okay commission from that! Still wasn't enough money. Those people were making a killing from me without lifting a finger. Here is what I have done... I've contacted India and China, I made those racoon tails for about $0.30/tail, and those wallets for $4/wallet, shipped it all to Canada. Made a 'fake' company, but corporate looking website. Made some high quality YouTube videos, always updating my Instagram with new pictures. And the crazy part is... Orders multiplied by 4! Profit? LOL.... A lot.. A LOT MORE! 0% commission since it is my product, 85% profit on the wallets, and nearly 90% profit from the racoon key chains. Moral of this story? If the product you are selling is physical, and isn't technological (TVs, cellphones, etc.) get China or India to do it for you for nearly nothing, ship it back home (where ever home is for you) and sell it that way.
