    Hi folks,

    I'm here to discuss and get feedback from you a new strategy that I've been working on. Over the recent months, I saw a decent decline in affiliate marketing. I did not recieve as many hits and my position in search engine rankings decreased.

    After months of desperate efforts and trying numerous ideas to stay afloat, I discovered the reason why I was failing: I was trying what everyone else was doing. And this is why I was not succeeding.

    To help myself with a new strategy, here's what I did:

    I made a custom built PHP script that is a fusion of daily deals and affiliate products. So basically, I combined affiliate products with features of Groupon. Upon entering the website, users are asked for their emails and category they?re interested to shop in. Next, they are shown products (grabbed from Amazon and Prosperent) for that specific category. If a user purchases an item through that page, you get paid! If a user doesn?t like what he sees on the page, the script emails the user weekly, biweekly or even monthly and informs of newly added products. So, a customer may not like something on one specific day, but through repeated emails, the customer might find something reasonable eventually. Thus, you never lose business!

    If you're interested or would like to share your feedback, please free to post here or PM me. I would love to hear any feedback that you may have. The purpose is to bring new methods in order to stand out. Google loves generic content and following common tactics will lead to nowhere. Agree?

    I am going to set something like this up but a little different, so google stops busting my balls. And I will add a forum to it too, so it looks like users are talking. But good idea, I think it might work. But still groupon is pretty famous and people like stuff they can trust....

    Yeh, my idea was to take the Groupon concept but instead of looking for businesses to advertise on my website, I was like why not integrate affiliate products so it's 100% autopilot. So far, I've setup a few demo websites and the response is encouraging.

    Thanks for your feedback :) Btw, how are you planning to increase activity in the forums?
