    Hey guys, I have a 500$ budget to invest it into this project, I want it as a second way to make me money in a long term, I'm a web developer freelancing with clients in US, I'm making good money with them, but I have a good grasp in SEO, so why not invest a 1 ~ 2 hours everyday on a long term website that could make money without doing hard work.

    I have already read pretty much all of Amazon related threads in BHW, most of them are doing really great with a good investment you could outsource 90% of the work.

    My plan it's to setup a wordpress website with good keyword in domain somehow branded, to look not really money oriented but more informational oriented, I pretty much sucks at writing, I'm thinking to buy articles for like 500 words/7$ plus some big 1500 words for 15$ ~ 20$ with focusing on amazon product between 90$ ~ 100$, writing reviews, table comparisons.

    For SEO tactics, I think if you have a high quality content you would not do hard work in SEO, just spread out your website, to all related websites with the same niche or near, with blog commenting, guest posts, social signals, or might be buying SEO packages from BHW marketplace, btw I heard that are most of those packages are really low quality ? can you recommend a good SEO package just to start off with it, to pump the website and feed it with every week 2 articles of 500 words, for like 3 months, with bunch of 1500 words article.

    so, what do you think of my plan, is any good ? do you think with this budget for a 3 months investment I could reach some how 1000$ per month ? or am I making the goal so high for suck 3 months period ?

    Please, I need your suggestions, advices, links to helpful resources would be much helpful.

    Thanks in advance

    There are loads of different services that actually create an Amazon website for you on BHW, but your best bet is always going to be making it by your own means.

    Amazon sites are relatively easy to set up as well, and $500 is a decent amount to put towards an investment (although I wouldn't exactly say it's "a lot").

    Anways, good luck to you!

    You need to know how SEO works before purchasing service.

    Even something sounds spammy like "xx,xxx links for $5" gig on Fiverr has its own value, it's just the way you use them.

    It is all about the traffic, you gotta be sure you can rank before laying out that cash

    It's a good start! Just try to be consistent, write good content to generate traffic to your website, and let the magic begin.

    Fingers crossed!

    Thank you guys for your responses, @Panther28 I still didn't do any keyword research for amazon products, this is just an overview of I can go doing those stuff, and that's really making me question myself, French is actually second foreign language in my country, I know english with amazon is pretty tough competition that's what I think if I would go with amazon france and look for their products and start buying content from french writers, which would be less competition in ranking the website.

    You'd need to get a really huge amount of traffic to see returns on a amazon site. I struggle with traffic. CTR to amazon is around 7% for me on 800+ traffic for the last month. I had 5 sales. Conversion and traffic sucks for me.

    @cottonwolf, Did you change your call to action way ? somehow your amazon affiliate links are not placed correctly, Did you change something to see the effects ? btw, Your content is outsourced or you wrote it ?
