Backstory Quick backstory, created my first Amazon site 6 months ago. This was my first real attempt at making an affiliate website and ranking it with SEO. Since I created it I've learned tons of things and I am confident that what took me at least 3 months to complete back then will take me no more than 1 month this time. My current Amazon site is ranking and making sales but I have a few problems with it: It's a seasonal niche and I hate waiting The site is a complete mess, I can't be bothered to overlook it Conversions are like a roller coaster. I'm at 1% conversions 7 days into the month. Other month I had 8%. I've grown tired of it Goal with this journey The goal with this journey is to see if I learned anything from my first Amazon site and if I can do it better this time. I also want a site that is not based on seasons, steady commissions all year long baby! From my experience, ranking on Google.com takes about 6 months if you do it slow. My sub goal is to get it ranking for some sweet keywords before X-mas. If everything goes well I plan to sell it after a year or so. The niche I kinda stumbled upon, I was surprised the competition was rather low, I haven't really done too much research on it. Just checked the top 3 domains on Google and realized it should be easy. The 5 top results include one affiliate website, unrelated authority website with a best of article targeting my niche, YouTube videos and some Amazon product pages. So this is a little gamble so to speak, but I am confident in the research I've done so far. I'll try to keep it as detailed as possible so n00bs can learn from this. I'll share my mistakes and explain what I could do better and so on. The plan This whole first month will be about getting the website finished and getting the content ready. From my minimal research I have found around 10 keywords which in total lands at about 20 000 searches a month. I guess I can probably land at 50 000 searches or more if I do my research correct. As of now, I have no plans of starting SEO the site before August, but who knows what I might do. The July plan: Complete keyword research Decide on what kind of articles I will write based on the keywords Find a freelance writer that is both cheap and good Find a decent theme (need something fresh, don't want the typical affiliate site look) Create YouTube, Facebook and Instagram pages for my site Stuff I don't remember My expenses and profits so far Expenses Domain: $9 Hosting: $4 (monthly) Total cost: $13 Revenue - LETS MAKE THIS THE BEST AMAZON JOURNEY OF ALL TIME YOO!
