    It's 6am here and I want to blow my brains out for being up this early (I got one hour of sleep), but I need to post this before I forget.

    And before anyone starts, no, this is not an advertisement for my BST. It has been closed since December and I'm not going to reopen it.

    OK, so, @whitecat1 and I decided to be buddies for this journey and post in this thread together. We're both going to set up our own Amazon affiliate websites. He's a total and complete newb at this, but I am not.

    The purpose of this journey thread is to hold us both accountable for setting up an Amazon website. I'll let him post his own goals here.

    My goal for doing this isn't to make money. The truth is I've gotten super lazy when it comes to just writing content for the web. I'm very used to writing marketing pieces like sales pages and white papers. I actually turn up my nose at the idea of just writing web content. And I can't be like that. I started my career as a content writer, and that's a skill I have to keep up no matter what. I'll never know when I need to fall back on it.

    So as much as it freaking pains me to do it, I'm going to set up this website. I don't want to be one of those people that thinks that because I'm successful I'm too good to do certain types of work. Those people are shitty, and while I'm a shitty person, I don't want to be that shitty.

    OK so we're going to follow these two threads:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/m...on-newbie-friendly-phase-5a-published.832879/
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/u...he-sites-that-are-insanely-profitable.687867/

    We've already got hosting, branded domain names, niches, etc.

    For people who think that it costs a lot to get this started up, it doesn't. I helped @whitecat1 get started for less than $10. There's a webhost in the marketplace that charges less than $2 a month for shared hosting, and he got a domain from GoDaddy for 99 cents. That's $3. That's it. That's all it took.

    The logos are probably going to cost around $5-10 on Fiverr. So for about $8-13 you can get started with your own Amazon website.

    OK, I've talked enough.

    Today I'm going to start working on my main article, which is probably going to be about 3000 words long. I'm going to work on it in sections in increments of 20 minutes a piece with frequent breaks until it's done.

    Ngl, if I get bored I'm going to go play Skyrim. So this might take a while. But I should be finished with it by Monday.

    Good luck with this, I'm thinking of going for Amazon affiliate due to my amazing (lack of) success with adsense.

    Do you have a specific plan of bringing customers?
    SEO or other ways? Because it may cost $13 to create a website, but it won't help a lot if it does not rank :( How do you plan to bring customers?

    Cheers!

    Hello everyone, my goal right now is to get 10 articles up and running by the end of the week, they need to be between 1000-5000 words long.
    I have never made money online before other than Youtube, and i lost over 4000 dollars buying methods that turned to be big fat scams, that why i decided to stop looking at the easy way out and just work hard, didn't even take 5 dollars to get this far, and hopefully i will get to see good results.

    Yes. It'll be linked to other articles across my site.

    I should have mentioned this, but I planned out my articles before I put this up. The 3000 word one is the longest one, so I'm going to do that one first.

    This is true.

    I'm actually going to use some advice from a few of @t0mmy's threads. I honestly prefer guest posting, infographics, etc to help get eyes on my site. But that will come much, much later. For now I'm just setting this up.

    The way I write should help to disguise the fact that this is an Amazon affiliate site. As I am a snarky heifer, it comes out like that in my writing. Most AZon sites are basic and boring. Personality in your writing helps you build a brand, an audience and sales. Plus I've got a few other tricks up my sleeve.

    I should be good.
