    So I decided to start with internet marketing and have decided going for the long route of creating an email list.

    My site/blog is up with weekly articles scheduled and still being written and I have had just over 500 visits since the site going live 3 days ago. This includes paid traffic (that started last night and which will be a total of 10,000 niche targeted traffic) and a competition I am hosting being advertised on free deal websites. Adsense has made me just over £9/$14 (which has made its money back for the paid traffic) and I have 195 sign ups on my list so far. Once the sign up has been made the thank you page tells them to watch the below video, which is in fact a link (that looks like a video) to an affiliate products website / video. So far 30 people have visited the link but no one purchased.

    So its moving along slowly, may not be a lot of income at the moment but my goal is to concentrate on creating a niche email list and then in a years time start to use that list for affiliate marketing. So the affiliate link at the end of the sign up as well as adsense is just there for the little bit extra to keep the site going.

    Im really happy with how its turning out I now just need to study these forums more and get some more niche signups as I believe the sign ups at the moment are more to win the xbox I am offering.

    So am I on the right path for my first venture? Im just happy Im actually doing it rather than just reading and wishing I was doing it.

    Where did you get niche targeted traffic from?

    To be honest I am not really promoting my affiliate product more than telling them about it after they have signed up to my newsletter. I am just trying to run a legitimate blog at the moment and try to get as many people on the email list as possible while getting my site up in ranks as a well known site. I have just over 300 email address's at the moment so I dont want to start pushing any products until I have at least 2,000.

    I am contemplating writing an article on my affiliate product through the blog and then pushing that particular page up through google as much as I can. Just trying to go slowly. I have a package with Jack Sparrow on here to get some better rankings as at the moment I dont even have a rank and I am still getting traffic pushed to the site.

    Also contemplating setting up some other sites on different niche's but not sure if I should wait and see how this one turns out.

    Theres so many options but Im just happy I am seeing progress. Once I make a few hundred I may also see if I can invest in someone on here. That way I can learn and make money.

    Just so you know , that kind of traffic you bought for is not really for monetizing. Its more to dilude your traffic, if ppl bought it to monetize it, then it wouldn't be as cheap.

    Pretty much everybody that knows would tell you the same what that traffic is mostly used for.

    But other than that, you straight look like your starting pretty fast and going at a pretty fast paced. Almost 200 sign ups to your email list, pfff in 1 year at that pace you should have anywhere from 10-30k sign ups on your lists.

    Thanks. Yeah I am trying to put as much time and effort in as I can from the start. I dont want to get bored and then have wasted my time. Work hard and it pays off. I didnt know that about the traffic however its still helping with the adsense side of things but yeah not at all working for sales. Hopefully in a few month once I have paid for more services from Jack Sparrow and I am nearer the top of google then I will start to see more sales coming from it.

    Theres just so much to learn I am having to force myself to stay on one thing otherwise I would be trying everything I read and getting nowhere.
