Affiliate Website Case Studies
I've said before, that affiliate site case studies suck, and I still think that. They do suck, because they're impossible to follow as a perfect example of what to do with your own affiliate site.
If a case study is too specific, then it's hard to apply the principles to your own niche. If it's too broad, then it's hard to understand really what happened and how you can replicate it.
So rather than just complain, I'm just writing up my own reports in a way I thinks can be helpful. Here, you'll find some posts about earnings breakdowns similar to income reports, as well as some specifics about experiments I run and how they turn out.
I try to publish everything after they are finished rather than tracking in real time so that I have time to digest the information and publish it in a way that is useful to you.

When I started affiliate marketing in 2010, I had a portfolio of about 60 websites. It was madness. Obviously I had no idea what I was doing, and I spent the next 5 years trying to whittle down my portfolio from 20_ websites earning $100 per month, to just 1-2 websites earning $1000’s. It took […]
If you are interested in affiliate marketing, then you’ve probably heard some amazing stories. Many are fake, but some are real. In fact, I’ve lived some of them. One particular milestone I’ve accomplished at least a couple times is earning $1,000 per day in affiliate sales. That’s net income for the day, no “sales generated”, which […]
There’s always a lot of chatter about high ticket affiliate programs and how they can earn a lot of money for affiliates. While that may be true, very often it leaves out the other side of the equation: The buyer. So what you end up with is a bunch of low quality affiliates spamming their […]
After you make your first website, the thing that’s on your mind most is how you are going to make your first dollar. At least for me, that first money came in the form of Google Adsense. I didn’t have to sell anything! All I needed was a few ads on my site, and with […]
