Thanks for your response! Looking at the bestseller list is a good idea, at least to get some initial ideas. It seems that no matter which direction I go, though, there’s already another bigger site out there already doing it.
That’s a nice and simple strategy to make money using Youtube and Amazon. There are many more ways to earn with Youtube like promoting CPA or physical affiliate products that sells on Youtube like crazy.
This metric is a way of summarizing the conversion rate, average ticket price, and commission percentage. It does not take into account the click rate that an offer will receive. So while EPC is certainly a useful stat to consider when evaluating potential affiliate offers, it must be considered alongside the click rate an offer will receive. A great EPC combined with a bad click rate won’t translate to great earnings. (In other words, the highest EPC isn’t necessarily the best offer.)
Started the blog 6 years ago, but I didn’t start taking blogging seriously until about 2 1/2 years ago.

Never give up :-O

As long you know how to use the computer, social media and internet then you can start marketing online and earn money. I like the idea it represents since you get to be your own boss and you can choose to work at home. But then, affiliate marketing needs resourcefulness also. It takes guts and assertiveness.
I am so very glad I found this website and read this post. I am so inexperienced in all this, but I do see that you take a totally different approach to the many others I have read. It is so refreshing. I will go back reread, study and apply.
Affiliate websites are often categorized by merchants (advertisers) and affiliate networks. There are currently no industry-wide standards for the categorization. The following types of websites are generic, yet are commonly understood and used by affiliate marketers.
That said, if you’re interested in building affiliate sites that sell, I also suggest checking out our AffiloBluePrint, which includes our custom AffiloTheme for websites and a bunch of other bonuses — and complete support so you can create a site that earns you commission with ease:
Paid advertising — this method requires an effective combination of ad copy, graphics, and a highly-clickable link. Unlike more traditional affiliate marketing strategies, paid advertising (through pay-per-click ads) earn you money regardless of whether a reader buys the product or not. Services like Google’s AdSense make this quick and easy for you, and can even supply you with an advertising code.

Having a loose script. You don’t need to read anything word for word, but know what you’re trying to say and the general flow of your video. You can even set a piece of paper off-screen to glance at to help you remember, and this can help put your mind at ease—making it much easier for you to feel like yourself while you talk.
I was following someone else’s guide and they said you should have a static front page, but I feel like I would be getting more views and more clicks if I had the opposite ie; my latest blogs on the homepage. I also checked my stats and when I link to an article/review people stay longer. When I link to the home page they don’t stay as long AND a higher bounce rate. My bounce rate for the homepage is literally 3,000 in the past month. They hit that homepage and stay for around 7 minutes which means most are probably reading the static page, but then they just… leave.
Hi – thanks for the excellent article, I’m sure it will be a great help as I find Amazon a bit of a nightmare for getting sales – one thing though, the link you gave for adding extra tracking ids doesn’t work – I think it should be ‘managing tracking ids’ not ‘add’.

Hi Warren. The best thing to do in your situation is to simply break the process down into steps—like the steps laid out here. Make it your goal to take on one thing at a time, then tackle it as quickly as possible.
