So for you guys (and girls) who aren’t familiar with me (tibbledot) I am posted this “How I spent 200$ building a niche affiliate website and earned 0.0$ after 3 months.”
After my post I gathered all the feedback and new knowledge I got and came to the conclusion that it would be a waste for me to polish the turd I had created since I lack a ton of skills in the affiliate market.
My affiliate site Smartwatchreview.eu actually got some sales ($17) but were shutdown by amazon since I accidentally wrote my email address in the field where my website should have been, so they couldn’t find it.
So there we go, end off that chapter of my life. I put my affiliate website up for sale today after I’ve created a new website based on my skill set.
My new website (For feedback purposes only) is Myleggings.se
It was created 11 days ago. And since then I actually made 598kr ($74) in sales and a profit of $46.75
This is how I did it.
My first attempt was successful until my account got banned due to me being a retard. While Instagress was doing the thing Instagress do, I too was doing the same thing. Which is easy to find out for Instagram. So if you want to follow my footsteps. Here is my advice: Use instagress, skip the follow/unfollow part and use the slow speed. And dont use your account meanwhile.
After one or two days of this I had forwarded a “bunch” (maybe 70 visitors/day) towards my website where 11-12 visitors had signed up for my newsletter to get my 20% discount.
(sorry for skipping the part with the newsletter, it’s of huge importance to get traction and fairly easy to setup)
I used Mailchimp with my website.
It’s hard to get traction in the start and I was/am eager to start. So I sent every participant of my newsletter the discount code and I was good to go. I officially launched my website even though it’s not done yet.
The first two days got me a income of $74.
I still got a bunch of stuff to do, like translating my theme 100% to Swedish and figure out how I should do the bookkeeping of a company that dropship from Asia and ship products world wide.
I also know that my business would have been 100x better if I could storage all the products in Sweden and increase the price a bit. But that has to come with time, I need to gather another $250 to bulk order the most popular products and ship them from Sweden. But it is a transition that comes naturally with time.
And for you who’s wondering why I post this.
It’s simply to guide every “wantepreneur” out there a bit down the road of e-commerce. I am by no means better than anyone else. If I can do this, everyone can. Thats why I show of my market, products and a basic “how to”, I want to encourage you all to do it.
And of course to gather more feedback and knowledge as I did with my previous post.
If you found this post useful, you could like my facebookpage in return as a “Thank you”.
But that is by no means necessary!
A small guide and “how to” start a e-commerce site from scratch to the first sale in a fairly short time.
