O.K., O.K, I admit the title is a little cryptic but let me explain. What I’m suggesting by the title is that site flippers can make money with affiliate marketing while they hold their properties and then they can make even more money when they sell them. The name of the game when you’re flipping websites is to get the absolute top dollar for them when you sell. In most cases you can only do that if your websites are making “good” money.
Affiliate marketing is a simple way to monetize your websites and to get them generating revenue as quickly as possible. Now it’s not as quick and easy as monetizing with AdSense or other advertising opportunities, but once you get it going you’ll make significantly more money. As an example, I owned a popular supplement website that was getting over 10,000 visitors per month. I was initially monetizing it with AdSense. At its peak, it was bringing in around $250 per month. I dropped AdSense completely and strictly promoted supplements as an affiliate. After that my revenues were consistently over $1,200 per month!
Here’s where it really gets good. I hung on to the site for a couple years because it was a total cash cow. I was making over $14,000 a year doing minimal work to the site. I eventually got bored with it and I knew sooner or later I was going to have to put more work into it or sell it. I chose to do the latter. Because it was such a solid earner, I was able to get over 10x monthly revenue for it. Granted, I probably would have gotten 10x monthly revenue if it was strictly an AdSense site but at only $250/month, I would have made a fraction of what I actually got when I sold it.
How To Master Affiliate Marketing
While it’s simple for site flippers to make money with affiliate marketing (and a lot of money at that), it isn’t necessarily easy. I have been a successful affiliate marketer and I owe ALL of my success to Site Build It! (aka SBI!). Ironically, I would never recommend SBI! for site flippers because it’s cost prohibitive. However, if you are struggling with making money as an affiliate marketer, than I have the best FREE resource you’ll ever find on the topic.
It’s called Make Your Site SELL! (MYSS!). It’s a 1,500+ page ebook that was coined, “The BIBLE of selling on the Net,” when it debuted over 10 years ago. It was updated in 2002. When I first started as an Internet Marketer in 2005, it was the first ebook I ever read. I practically memorized it. To this day I continue to refer back to it. I am not exaggerating when I say I owe most of my affiliate marketing success to this one ebook. It’s that good. You can get your copy by clicking here.
If you really want to make money with affiliate marketing, then do yourself a favor and download the book. It’s free and you have nothing to lose. And for you skeptics reading this, I am not an affiliate for SBI! The link I have to the book is a straight link. I just believe in it and I think it should be a required read for anyone new to Internet Marketing or anyone who is struggling to make money with affiliate marketing.
As a site flipper, you can dramatically boost your income and your business’ bottom line if you can “master” the art of affiliate marketing. You may never monetize your websites with AdSense or advertising of any kind again!
