    I love this part of BHW. It gave me so much motivation especially when things didn't work the way I hoped...
    That's why I started this journey! I hope you all can find some motivation reading my updates.

    Who Am I?
    I'm emzed, 20 years old, currently studying at university.

    I'm not starting from scratch, I actually got into internet marketing a few years ago, working with poker/betting sites.
    It wasn't easy, I made my first $4000 then stopped for almost a year.... and started again from exactly 1 year ago!

    I've got to say that my first experience with IM definitely helped as I already knew the very basic things.

    My Goals
    My goal is to reach $4000/month with Amazon Associates, then move on and diversify my income.
    This must be a long term, relatively stable, income from large authority niche sites (How many? 5 sites would be perfect.)

    Why?
    i think $4000 of pure passive income would be (more than) enough for me to live the way I want, travel and, most importantly, invest in other projects and make even more money!

    What Am I Doing to Make Money: My Strategy
    When I started 1 year ago, I knew I wanted 2 things:
    > Something reliable
    > Something that could potentially bring me very good money passively

    I stumbled upon Amazon Associates and decided to give it a go. I took it extremely seriously from the very beginning, just like any other offline business.
    1) I created my first site in Nov 2013, it failed.
    Niche selection was bad. It's all fine, I learned so many things thanks to this failure.

    2) I created my 2nd site (A) in january/february 2014.
    I put as much effort as I could (while going to uni) and came up with my own strategy in regards to site promotion and content strategy.
    This site started making money in May 2014 and I...

    3) Created 2 more sites in May (B and C).
    I'm currently promoting these 2 sites.

    4) Keep creating & growing niche sites until I reach my $4000/month goal.

    *** AUGUST 2014 EARNINGS ***
    August 2014 was my best month so far!
    I made a total of $2400! This means I'm more than halfway to reach my goal.
    This was the first time I experience the real beauty of passive income.
    I traveled for 2 months, didn't work at all, and came back home with even more money! :D

    Here's a screen from Amazon. (in case you're wondering- the other $300 I made are from amazon EU and CA!)

    *** GOALS FOR SEPTEMBER 2014 ***
    1> Leave site A, B and C making money on their own until January 2015 (then publish new articles)
    • Schedule 3 articles a month to be published on each site, until the end of december (already bought & received all of them)
    • Promote site A for Christmas.
    • Start promotion for B and C. Get them ready for christmas.
    ​2> Start a new niche site by the end of September


    Feel free to ask me questions here or PM me! ;)

     
    • Thanks Thanks x 24

    WOW. I make huge money with Adsense, but I will remove all ads and put Amazon on every site one mont, to test it. Because on the end of the day, Amazon is more reliable than ADSENSE. Cheers

    Thank you all guys! I appreciate.
    I also had my highest earning day yesterday! $133!

    @Adrian112, I'm using EasyAzon. I made an extra $600 during the last 3 months... not bad for just a $40 plugin!

    Nothing special. Just the standard security plugins, contact form, backup and similar basic plugins.
    I'd say the only one that's Amazon related is EasyAzon.

    Congrats on your success and good luck to reach your goal. You will be there in no time :)

    Just few questions for you:

    Is your site review site or just article based around the keywords?
    What source is traffic coming most and how much do you get traffic?

    Thanks in advance :)

    @LostConnection, thank you! :)

    My niches are broad. I have both informative articles and reviews.
    Traffic is from google. My main site gets almost 800 uniques/day.

    Thanks for this motivating thread. You can become a millionaire in 10 years with amazon along if you can scale it up.

    Have you tried anything else, except amazon? It's just a curiosity...no real reason for this question.
    good luck with you journey.
