    Hey!

    As you might have noticed I joined this awesome forum recently - July. Till this day, I was reading, reading and reading on how to make money online and how to build your own online business. I saw a couple of threads journal type threads, where people were laying out, what they were doing and how they succeeded. It's interesting to see how people grow from nothing to something. So I decided to make one myself, mainly, because I want to keep myself on the track. I believe this thread will help me to put myself into work, as I'm lazy.

    Also I need some support from you all, while I'm on this journey. I'll definitelly have some questions and hopefully some of you will take a minute or two to share your knowledge with me. I'll try to update this thread with latest accomplishments as much as possible.

    This is what I'm planning to do:

    - Pick a niche.
    Currently I've CPA accounts on MaxBounty and CPA L**D. Thinking to start with MaxBounty.

    - Keyword research on picked niche.
    Thinking of using Adwords keyword tool, maybe other suggestions?

    - Register a keyword rich domain name.
    Pick a keyword that has the most searches per month and register it. Not sure which company to use, suggestions?

    - Get a hosting.
    Which is most reliable and cheap hosting?

    - Write some articles.
    Keyword rich articles. 3-5 keywords in 450 word article. Is that good?

    - Place ads on the website.
    Banner, between the articles and right side. Good layout?

    - Promote.
    Now this is tricky, because I know almost nothing about promoting a website. Hopefully using those keywords, I will eventually get some traffic via Search Engine. However I was planning to promote via Social media, such as Youtube and Twitter?

    This is my plan and this is my journey, please fallow as I might need your advice and your suggestions as my journey continues.

    Skip the domain hosting part. Use Hubpages and Squidoo lenses for initial. Try to focus on niche with 3-5 offers like free laptop, free video games DVD etc offers.
    And Good Luck :)

    Thanks you all for responding. Some good advices already.

    A quick question to AutoBlogger. If I use Squidoo lens or Hubpage, CPA network won't have a problem with that? If I place their affiliate link under each article I write?

    Free electronics should be my main focus? Easy to convert and such right?

    Day - 1

    So after a few suggestion, I decided to go with zero cost tactics and made a squidoo lens. I went to MaxBounty and picked a smartphone niche, wrote a lens reviewing 5 smartphones, placing a link under each article. Picked 10 keywords to build on, but the competition is pretty big, not sure if I'll be able to hit the spotlight. Now that lens is up and running, time to figure out ways to drive some traffic.

    To-do:

    -Keyword research (find another keywords that has low competition and is highly searched)
    -Make a youtube account and upload a picture video.

    Any suggestions? Let me know if the niche is good or bad.

    Thanks JohnnyRabbit!

    Wanted to show you the squidoo lens I made and get some feedback, but not allowed to post links for now. What are requirements to be able to post them?

    Good Luck... I think you have already passed about 65% of all the people who tell others they do affiliate marketing.

    You have done something all of them have not.....TAKE ACTION!

    I wish you well and don't give up.

    Keep track of your results and adjust based on facts, not personal preference and you will be fine.
