    In 2011 September I completed my graduation and started providing article writing service. Things were good until 2012 November and I was making like $500 per month just working 4 hours a day. From 2012 November things really started to go bad. Therefore I decided to change my life style.

    Currently I own 23 websites and not one of them are making me money. I just listed every website on my whiteboard and filtered the ones which had potential of ranking and the ability to earn some cash through affiliate marketing. See, I am looking to generate passive income and not to sell some service. If I am write, I can generate massive passive income.

    3 sites promoting SAS (each promotes the same product which has an Exact search of approx 300)

    2 sites promoting clickbank (both have approx 700 exact searches each and both fall into heavy competition )

    2 sites promoting Amazon (one is heavy competition with 12k exact searches and the other is just general where I have decided to write on any damn topic and make some sale)

    Before I can write my plan let me evaluate my strengths and weaknesses

    Strengths:
    I can research and write great content
    I know SEO and had already ranked my article and guest blogging service on the first page in 2011 and 12
    Good at guest blogging.
    good at creating simple landing pages that convert

    Weaknesses:
    I need constant inspiration.
    I sleep a lot
    I give up easily on things
    fear rejection and failure (I was planning to start a journey for the last 3 months but never had the guts to do it till now!)
    eat a lot and eventually falling asleep and not working.

    Okay, here is my daily plan. They are divided into three parts:
    (I have made a commitment to do these things daily)
    write 3 articles for sites promoting sas
    write 1 article for site promoting CB (one is on WP and the other HTML and will be adding content only to WP)
    write 4 article for site promoting amazon products. One article will go to the heavy competition site and other 3 articles will go to the general review sites (I will choose a random product from Amazon and construct a review)

    Whenever possible I won't miss the chance to get backlinks. I am not sure how exactly I will gain backlinks but will update the same as I do.

    P.S: Please don't tell me that it is too much work or something of that sort. But please do not hesitate to motivate me when I am not updating.

    P.P.S: I won't be checking frequently with the affiliate network earnings as it might discourage me. So, I have decided to check the earnings only twice per month.
    Screenshots of Affiliate Networks as of Sept 17 2013 (I will check my affiliate network next on Oct 1)

    in your postition i would make like more a general blog of your interest and post there quite often .. build up a interesting blog since content is your thing.

    the exact searched for the first products look to low to work for.

    Finally done with 4 articles for Amazon sites. Wow! I couldn't believe I wrote so many articles in just a short time. I think I will take some rest or watch a movie. If possible I will do some off page seo later at night.

    I think the flaw in your plan is the low search volume and the high competition
    If your going to go up against high comp
    You may as well get high searches.

    With CB you will find 80% of your sales wil come from only one or 2 keywords
    make sure you get the right ones, They are not necessarily the ones with he highest searchest

    Best if luck with your journey

    Thanks for the tip but I have started. And I believe that every plan does have a flaw and so let there be a flaw in mine.

    Do you have an email list??? You should have a system to "rinse and repeat" your customers again and again otherwise, it is pretty much useless.
