Affiliate Marketing

Updated on March 6, 2010

The 30 day challenge

O.K. - Domain name parking will be covered - either here or on another hub (once I have figured out how these things work) but if you're interested in parking a domain then this is definitely something you should consider first.

I have to give this a great deal of credit for the following reasons:-

  1. It's free (although some of the suggestions do require a small initial outlay)
  2. Its very thorough and contains a great deal of straightforward, easy to follow, relevant information
  3. It has rekindled my interest in developing my ideas.

What is it?

It's a series of videos (which can be read or printed off in pdf format) showing how to create a niche market website from scratch. It's a great source of information and inspiration. The activities don't have to be done on a daily basis - well I haven't been able to do that anyway! I prefer to keep going back to a particular day and studying it in depth - but everyone's different. That's the nice thing about this system - everyone can choose their own method of learning. I woud definitely recommend it as a starting point for anyone considering creating a website as a means of income or to expand their business.

Domain Name Parking

Well, if you already have domain names why not let them work for you?

That's the theory - park your unused domains with one of the leading service providers and they will add appropriate links - when someone clicks on a link you get paid - the rate varies you get more for credit cards/loans etc. than retail.  There is one problem however, how do you get traffic to your site when no-one knows your website's there?  You are not allowed to get friends and family to try it or the account will be closed down (speaking from experience) so I think this one's a non-starter.  If anyone has had any success I'd like to hear from them. 

Amazon is always my first port of call
