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.
