MIKE'S IM JOURNEY Hello BHW! As the title states, I'm a complete beginner to directly monetizing via internet marketing by means of Amazon Affiliates and CPA. Hopefully documenting my journey can help keep me motivated. While I've never dabbled in these before, I've been working full-time SEO jobs for a few years now. So while I more or less know what I'm doing in terms of whitehat SEO, I'm completely clueless when it comes to making money with nearly no resources/budget, so any advice would be much appreciated. CPA For CPA, I'm signed up with MaxBounty as they're pretty beginner friendly and they were the first (and only) CPA network to accept my application. So I've started promoting my CPA offers on Twitter using the method @honestIM posted. I'm really just letting the top/trending campaigns decide what niches I make accounts for. So far I have 3 set up, 2 are automated to retweet posts from target accounts and follow. I ran into a problem with MB links because Twitter would mark both direct and redirect links as unsafe. So I'm using the method @savobaby posted to get them to a Google doc and have them go to the offer from there. I use Google URL shortener for my doc's URL, so far clicks are almost at 40 but CPA clicks are at only around 3 with no conversions. AMAZON AFFILIATES Not much to say here. I have a new domain that's currently set up as a blog but I want to restructure it as an ecommerce store/reviews site with a blog to help boost onsite SEO and rank for keywords, though that's not a priority. Aside from Amazon, I'm signed up as an affiliate with several other sites and stores. I plan to promote primarily over social media with Instagram, Twitter, and maybe Facebook. They both have small followings, IG is at 8K and Twitter at 6K but both of the followings are real and very niche-targeted. First order is business is to get my site ready for affiliate selling then I hope I can start monetizing my followings. Thanks for reading! Hope to get some insightful feedback.
