Hey, I just started a journey thread today, marking the end of my career as an affiliate marketer. I've had a good run but honestly I'm really tired of it, and I've decided to let it go in favor of other things. Anyway, I thought I'd celebrate this by posting my most recently used/abused method which earned me $500-$1500 per day up until about a year ago. My thinking is someone can take this, apply their own twist and hopefully make some serious money with it! So what was the method? It was simple, really. There are no "secrets" here - I only took what was common knowledge and made something unique with it. What I did was I ranked thousands (literally) of parasite pages for coupon keywords (like "<brand> coupons", "<product> coupon" etc), then sent the traffic I got to a certain type of affiliate offer - more about that later. I used a whole bunch of different parasite hosts, the ones I remember off the top of my head were Posterous, Wikispaces, Wetpaint, Gather and LinkedIn. I built Zennoposter bots for each of them, allowing me to post around 400-500 posts/day. All the posts were created from the same ultra-spun base, injected with their keywords and a huge link to the offer. That's it. Then I threw some links at them, ranging from blog network links to comments, wikis and general GSA blasts. On some keywords I owned almost every spot on Page 1 in Google, which must've been quite frustrating for the poor Googlers who had to wade through it all And the affiliate offer? I'm not kidding when I say I probably had to try 20 different monetization methods before finding one that really knocked it out of the park. The winning formula was creating my own co-reg form using SilverPath offers (now sadly not in business anymore since co-reg is virtually dead in the US). The user experience was horrible I'm sure, the whole idea behind those co-reg systems was getting people to input their mobile number, not knowing they'd be signed up for whatever useless SMS subscription. But... It was profitable like hell. I had about a 50% submission rate on my form (name, phone #, email address), and each signup was worth $0.7 or so. What's the lesson here? The lesson is I didn't give up even though the first 19 affiliate offers I tried produced very poor results (in this case "poor" was $50/day or something). I kept testing new things, split testing LPs and offers until I hit it BIG. Why did you stop and does this method still work? After running this system for about a year, most parasite hosts started disappearing or cracking down on, ehm, "bulk posters" like myself. That combined with SilverPath's demise and the fact I didn't feel too good about the whole thing even though it made good money, lead to me giving it up. I'm positive a new spin on this method could be extremely profitable. These keywords have HUGE search volumes, are very easy to rank for, and I'm sure there are still many parasite hosts out there just waiting to be used. Or your own domains if that's your thing. Also, coupon hunters are easily persuaded to fill out forms and stuff if they think a coupon is waiting on the next page. Use that to your advantage... If anyone wants to do something similar, feel free to ask me anything and I'll try to help out! Please try to keep it in the thread though so everyone can benefit.
