Hi everyone, I thought about starting a journey mainly to motivate myself. Knowing that other people might be following what I am doing will keep me at it. I tend to lose focus very fast and starting new projects on impulse, thus many projects that could be successful otherwise, would remain idle. Little bit of history: I have been an affiliate since 2008, made sales with Clickbank mainly ($5k+) and markethealth ($1k) along with a few other networks but never cash in the money. My main marketing method was article marketing (bum marketing like it used to be called back then). I gave up because I took a job that didn't leave me enough time to work on my websites. I ended up losing all of them over time (I had 16 websites). Also I didn't stay with affiliate marketing since it was not bringing in enough and had to give it up. So I am trying to start again. From what I noticed, things have changed a lot. Affiliate websites don't seem to rank that well (I assume it's because of the penguin updates) What I plan on doing is this: Health Website -The blog + the store -The blog - part that will be indexed on Google and rank over time (probably will only have adsense on) - Around 5 articles per day, 400+ words each (actually no article) -The store - health products from shareasale, basically this website will be infested with affiliate links, thus not letting it getting indexed (actually filled with 140 health related products) News Website (actually 6 articles) - Working on this with google trends - 10+ daily news - Will be monetising with adsense and a few other affiliate products here and there but that will be after I got it into google news So far what I have in terms of online revenue is 0 Actual balance showing on networks I'll be using is as follows: Shareasale: $6.16 Adsense: $â‚¬7.75 Clickbank: $0 I will still be using content marketing but I will not be submitting articles to Ezine or any other article websites. Marketing method will be SEO and social media. I'll be updating once or twice a week to see where I am standing. Wish me luck. -- EDIT: I forgot to add, my goal is to earn a steady $1000 monthly to start.
