Set up multiple goals: even if your ultimate goal is for a user to purchase something, setting up additional goals, such as time spent on the site or the number of pages visited, will give you a better insight into possible issues with your landing page. If users are spending time browsing your website, maybe the landing page isn’t compelling enough or they need more social proof to make a purchase. Whatever it is, you can fix it!
Well, within only a week (before even finishing the course), I had upped my affiliate income on this site by over 4000%. Before you freak out, let me confess that the most I’d ever made before was a measly $1.84, but going from pretty much nothing to 40x that in less than a week? Dang! In about 30 days, I made over $1500 in affiliate income, and have consistently been over $500 a month since then. I can’t lie – I do a frantic happy dance every time this money enters my Paypal, because it’s some of the easiest cash I’ve ever earned. Passive income… guys, that’s where it’s at.
Do Paul! Affiliate marketing is awesome – and you’re right, it can be overwhelming b/c it can be hard to know who to trust, but it’s a wonderful way to make money online — esp when you’re promoting products/services you are proud of. Let me know if you have any questions. There’s a lot I don’t know … and a lot I do. For what I don’t know, I can find the answer for you.
Alternatively, you may find that certain products, services or even ads do better on one platform or another, which is another good reason to continually optimize all of your marketing campaigns. Having a profitable CPA is great, but if you can increase the number of actions by changing up your ads or what you’re offering, that can be a huge win for your company!
Hey hun! Thank you so much for this review and all your lovely work! Just purchased Michelle’s course as I’ve been wanting to learn from her for a while and prefer to learn from others in a big fb group as well. I purchased via your link – to be truly successful affiliates we have to support each other right?? 😉 Wishing you continuous success with your site and I’m off to study how to progress with mine! Yay! 🙂
But if you’re looking for a way to grow a LEGITIMATE online business, this is the place to be. If you have enough patience, you’ll be rewarded with a career that pays exceptionally well and one that runs on autopilot 24/7/365. I literally wake up every morning (without an alarm clock, I might add) and the first thing I do is check my phone to see how much money I made while I was asleep.
Hi Brian. Thanks for the article. I think you’ve already said it in a couple of the replies but I want to make sure I understand. Are you saying that it’s best to have a website before applying to a network? I don’t have a website as of yet. If it is best to have a website can you recommend how big it should be? For ex., 5 pages? 10 pages? I ask because I would like to get started as soon as possible. However, I don’t want to waste my time or put up a site that isn’t quality (which also is equivalent to wasting time). If a website is the best route then I will take the time to put one together. What is your suggestion here?
While most of these companies advertise that you can earn upwards of $18 or so an hour, the reality is that you're not going to make that much once you figure in your gas expenses and wear and tear on your car. Also, work may not always come in consistently. I would recommend doing more than one of these if you really want to make it worth your while.
