    Are these site such as >>> TIWIB and "Mommy I Want This" "The Gadget Flow" " Dude I Want This" Are they still popular???
    Is this concept of monetizing saturated with all these types of sites.
    Are they still attracting new visitors and making conversions based on this type of marketing?
    What do you guys think???

    I think that there is still some potential. I created a similar site and I marketed it with facebook ads (i set the bid for engagement) and all of my ads got 0.01$/engagement because people tend to share that shit :p

    It went really well for 4 months (had around 150000 uniques), I sold around 80.000$ worth of products on amazon, and had a revenue of around 6000$ (profit was around 4000$).

    But I couldnt scale it, because the number of products is limited, and i run out of products (the ones that can go really viral).

    Nowdays i just check if there is some new product just to make some quick cash, but nothing more than that...

    Thanks BlackIce for the response. I have the domain OMGYOLO and trying to decide what to do with it.

    Thinking about a viral site about the "omg" or "yolo topics.. Not sure how I could monetize though a site like this with Amazon.

    Did you give up on Amazon then or have you moved onto other things as far as Amazon goes?

    Im trying to build a review site, im investing the money i got from the project i mentioned above. This time i want google to be my traffic source. However if you already have traffic you can test it with those products.
    My advice should be to track the facebook and twitter accounts of the website you mentioned, and try to find the products which have more engagement so you can replicate what they are doing.

    What i did was that i was checking the products that produced more engagement on this sites facebook pages. I noticed that they didnt boost the posts but still they got something like 600-700 shares on specific products that went viral.

    I just took advantage of their page likes, to see what works and what dosent. So i boosted this specific products and had success. Sometimes I also failed, but i always tested my ads with 10$ budget and then if it worked I increased the budget.

    if you need some motivation check the screenshots.

    You can see that some of those boost went really viral and as low as $0.004/engagement

    As i told you you cant find this cool products everyday, as soon as i find one i test it.

    Do you still have the site running just on it's own through google traffic and a facebook page?

    I am just starting on my second amazon review site and it's going okay. My first site was just a test and learn as to how to even use WP and what to do. I did more KW research this time and I think it will do fine in the long run. I'm just going to keep learning and improving.

    I'm trying to figure how to monetize a OMGYOLO image site with amazon products. I want to put a twist on the the typical TIWIB type of sites, but not sure yet what to do.

    How many review sites have you made now?

    Actually i was dumb enough to just include duplicate product description from Amazon (because i was not targeting google as my traffic source). However i was making some small sales from google, nothing much tho around 10$/week. However i received a thin content penalty and those earnings went away since that.

    I still get some sales from facebook even without posting, still nothing much.

    I just have one review site right now but im still in the process of ranking it. No sales yet, i havent even yet put the affiliate links.
