So, I have been lurking around here for sometime and finally embarked on my first affiliate marketing adventure. I've taken my time to do intensive studying before hopping into it and I feel that I should see some good results. (lets hope!) My questions for those more well-versed: Can you give feedback on my strategy? and, if my strategy is correct.. is it really this simple to make money? Here's what i've done so far: 1. Found click bank product with good gravity. 2. Used adwords keyword planner and verified it's getting a good amount of search volume (1800 per mo) 3. Searched competition...number 1 page on google for my keyword only has 300 or so backlinks 4. Created a stellar website for said product 5. Created 10 articles on my page with great content. Each article title and content was directly related to the top ten searched terms for this niche and had good keyword placement (not spammy) 6.Now undergoing my SEO campaign...Old fashioned white hat way for now. I will be manually building backlinks and using my 10 created articles for posting on tier one sites and pr sites that will link to money site, then i will be linking all my tier 2 sites to my tier 1 back links and tier 3 backlinks to tier 2 sites and spinning my existing content for lower tired placement.... Im thinking that it seems too easy...Please let me know if im missing any steps. Or have any recommendations to further assure success. Thanks BHW fam!
