    Hello BHW community!

    I'm very excited right now! Because I was out of the IM-Game last years and after weeks of deliberation, idea-hunting, reading tons of forum information now I've got 4 sales!

    I know 120 bucks are not much money, but I'm planning to scale like every good marketer here.

    My results of the last 2 weeks:

    Just find an interesting niche (small / trending), get an Affiliate plugin (Amazon, Ebay etc.) and import hundreds of products and do some SEO (or buy some gigs on Fiverr).

    If you have questions — feel free to ask :)

    And never give up, even if you failed 1089 times!

    with sites like trendhunter, google trends.
    it's also an advantage if you are personally interested in certain topics:
    example: technology -> mobile devices -> some devices for freaks (micro niche)

    "and do some SEO (or buy some gigs on Fiverr)." any specifics on this?
    As there are alot of gigs where the seller DOES do what he advertises But they really don't help your ranking.

    So you imported tons of products from plugin? Isn't that spammy?

    Yes, it's true — it got very difficult to find a real SEO deal on Fiverr. Most of people are spamming forums/blogs/ etc.
    So I decided only to buy small services but effective ones (social bookmarking, some PR10-5 links) and not billions of shit spam links.

    After some analysis I saw how important is correct Wordpress optimization and performance (Yoast, Squirrly- which I'm using, W3 Total Cache).
    I use only unique IP, VPS, keyword related domain and .COM

    Maybe I'm not on the top of Google, but I'm getting like 40-70 organic visitors/day. Best performance is on weekends.

    Not until you spin the content (product descriptions in this case) and optimize images.
    Google liked my pages so far.

    Sure! After buying an affiliate plugin (you can find many of them on CodeCanyon), import some products - not 20-50, but like 200-500. - so that you have some content for Google.

    3 sales were organic (from google) after people searched for the items which I have in my store. And this with just a little bit SEO (mostly on-site plugin optimization). For me it's really fascinating. No ads, no invests, just content and free Google visitors!

    1 sale was from a social platform (reddit) after I started a discussion about one of my products, asking people what do they think about.

    I think the next free sources I'll focus on will be: forums / public discussion platforms / facebook groups.
