    History:
    Last year around the month of October i stumbled upon a work from home program, coming from a country that credit card is not much of a known thing for ordinary people, I was not able to purchase that program. Continuously i searched for ways on how to make money online and found a lot of results about affiliate marketing so i head over the that site and checked if they offer affiliate program and yes they do. I signed up as an affiliate through Clickbank

    I searched how to do affiliate marketing and suddenly a lot of information just thrown infront of me but one thing in common, they always suggest to purchase a domain name and mask the affiliate link to it to ensure sales and they never suggest to use blogspot. Without a credit and setting up a debit card would cost me in my ***** country, right there and then I stopped my hopes in getting a domain name and chose blogspot.

    Set it up and then left it forever because I cant continue and know nothing about promotion...

    Last week while surfing around websites, i remembered to log in to my Clickbank account and here I got:
    10483296_10201425824206128_3581949002733538794_n.jpg
    $41.00 in the first week of July. I checked the program and yes! I got a sale from the method i set-up almost one year ago. Very Big Smile:)

    Analysis:
    If i did promote the program continuously, I should have earned more than this and should have earned earlier than this and much bigger than this:) I need focus..

    Game Plan:
    Because of the cost that entails me in setting up a debit card, I searched for local provider that sells domain names - I found 4 and they accept bank deposit or pay in cash in their office.

    This coming Monday, Aug. 4, 2014, GMT+8 I will purchase a domain name. To keep the initial cost low, purchase a domain name at Php 600.00 or around US $15.00 rather than opening an account and maintain some balance and have to purchase the domain at around $10.

    I also found an auto responder that offers free trial with unlimited list and still be able to use the full feature of their service.

    I will setup my domain with blogspot and create capture page (hope it wouldn't look that bad) just to be able to collect emails for the offer - I will still be able to export the list once trial period expires.

    I will promote the website in Youtube and other link building method - I have to do this on my own so i dont need to pay anyone - I can do this 4 hours a day because i have an 8-5 day job and 12 hours/day during my 2 days off.

    Once I've earned enough, i would buy a hosting plan to host my website and remove it from blogspot.

    Target:
    Conservatively I am hoping for 2 sales until Sept 4 2014 Manila Time and 2 sales each week on the next month until Oct 4 2014. Then, 1 sale per day on the following month starting October 5, 2014, Manila Time.

    Starting October 5, 2014, Manila Time
    1 Sale per day of $41.00 x 30 days = $1230/month x Php40/$1 = Php49,200.00 - a very ambitious goal but i am hoping i could reach near it until December - Holidays are coming (Christmas Time here)

    I know that there are some cost that will come my way and hoping for your support and guidance what i need to do to maximize my earning since i am fairly new to this. I will not be able to reply PMs since I am new here in BHW, if you have some advise that you dont want to publish it publicly, you may PM me but i will not be able to reply yet. I appreciate and will thank you in the comment/reply below.

    Most of the linkbuilding and SEO techniques that i will use come from BHW and some come from tons of ebooks i downloaded from other free sources..

    Thanks... thanks....

    Hope you could earn a good income via CB. I guess it is possible if you know what you are really doing.
    So how do you cloak your aff link in your video description now? Using tinyurl?

    thanks bro! just a bit sad today, it rained so hard in my place and was not able to pay for the domain but will do it first thing in the morning tomorrow.. i settled in checking/editing some videos for upload..

    im still thinking tho if i will directly cloak the aff link to my domain or to set up capture page because i need to have a good video in my capture page so my audience will enter their email voluntarily if ill set up one:)

    Bro, get a union EON account and connect that to your Paypal, You can deposit money from Union bank to paypal to purchase a domain. Local domain and web hosting have a very limited space / capability to get your site up. You'll save more in the long run if you buy outside PH. Also, grab some coupon codes to save some $$ before paying.

    Good luck in your journey, and make sure you document everything.

    Alright guys thank you so much for coming to this journey. Sorry if i was not able to update but i was working in the background:) now with all smiles, I got some click from Youtube and generated 1 sale last Aug 7.. Weeew:)
    Untitled.jpg

    I created an article with more or less 400 words but the clicks to the main offer from the article is so minimal given that i got almost 100 visits to the article. I am thinking if i could mask my aff link to my main domain at least when they click to my domain, they will get directed to the main offer?

    Would you guys advise to mask the afflink? since upon reading some articles about domain masking my domain could get penalized and wont appear in G i just dont know how G is gonna do that and for now my main source of traffic is through backlinks.

    Good luck on your journey mate :) Of course you should mask the aff. links because most people will run away after seeing your affiliate link. :p

    Agree with above - always mask your affiliate links!
