    Hi BHW members, I start receiving 5000+ daily traffic from pinterest and making 40$ a day with adsense. Now I thinking other ways to monetize my site to earn more revenue. I made an affiliate account on amazon and waiting approval until getting first referral. I thinking to do a dropship business and start learning on it.

    My question is: Dropship or Affiliate?

    Any suggestions?

    Dropshipping is going to earn you more money, but it can be a pain in the ass, especially if the customers aren't satisfied with the product, or if you get a payment disputed etc, it will cost you quite a lot of time to run a dropshipping business but it can be worth it.

    Affiliate marketing on the other side is probably not going to make you more money than dropshipping, but it's definitely going to make you more money than Adsense if Amazon has some good products related to your niche. Its also more easier to manage an affiliate store.

    But the problem with social media traffic and Amazon is that you'll end up wasting a lot of traffic if some of your visitors are non-Americans, although this problem can be fixed by using a plugin like easyAzon, but withdrawing money from another country's Amazon such as Amazon.ca, or Amazon.de etc is going to be a problem. Even if you have tier 1 traffic from Canadian/Australian/English visitors, it will be wasted if you're with Amazon US affiliate program, but these people might convert if you have a dropshipping store.

    So make sure you know your audience before you decide what you're going to do.

    I've been looking into Teespring campaigns. Could be as profitable as dropshipping without the hassle. Just not sure if my Pinterest followers are the right audience.

    5000+ pageviews, unique visitors, or what? Affiliate marking is very profitable right now (Aliexpress).

    Would suggest to go for affiliate for now and once it is set in place... Experiment with dropshipping.. so that you will have some stream of income while you perfect your strategy..
