Hey guys, Long time lurker here and I'm about to embark on my first ever IM journey. I've decided to take the Amazon Affiliate route since it seems the most straightforward and once I experience success with that I will branch out into other areas of IM. I've already chosen my niche, it's in the "Home" category on Amazon and I'm planning to target mostly female buyers who tend to spend more money online and are more likely to purchase the products in my niche. Rather than pick a single product or micro-niche my goal is to create an authority site about a wide range of home products. I have found a few keywords I will target with 5k word posts over the next few days. The keyword search volumes for the US are as follows: "best keyword keyword" = 4400 "best keyword keyword" = 9900 "best keyword keyword" = 5400 For each of these 3 keywords there are additional keywords and long-tail keywords that add up to more than 15k searches each. Other than "best" type of keywords I will also target review keywords and informational keywords to look better in search engines. So far I have hosting and a domain and I plan on writing a 5k word article tonight to get the ball rolling. My goal is $300 per day or around $10,000 per month. Well, let's see what I can do!
