I am a relatively new member here and I think it is time for me to start making money. I am no expert in IM so this will be a good learning experience. My method involves all White Hat. I will not be purchasing any traffic, pins, or anything. Below is a little blueprint: From start: - I have already purchased a domain - I am creating the website from scratch and I'm relatively close to completion (no CMS software) - I am already accepted into 2 affiliate programs To Do: - Finish the website - Apply to some more affiliate programs, about 5-12 more Promotion: I will be creating 1 Pinterest account only, with the name of the website as username. This account will be used to advertise all of the items I am affiliating. I won't be following users, only they will follow me. Advertising with long-tail keywords through Google AdWords. My SEO will be maximized: alternate image text, canonical URLs, heading tags, anchor text, etc.
