This video is month three of my affiliate marketing website build case study where I’m updating every month the progress and process and growing a website and affiliate marketing website from zero to $3,000 per month with a target timeframe of being in one year. So I’m three months in at this point and that means the first quarter is done and my approach to business and my approach to everything online is really a fire ready aim. It’s all about getting into emotion. It’s all about taking action starting as the most difficult part. And so many people stay stuck in research mode and they’ll just research forever. They won’t take any action and of course they’re never going to make any money. So I just pulled the trigger and bought a site to get things going. And now at month three we are just stuck in the aim phase so we are just aim, aim, aim.
We’re still dealing with the backlash from a poor decision on my part to buy 12 posts from one content team. Now I’ve used this first content team for other types of content projects and it worked. This affiliate site is a different type of content. Review content is simply different. So I bought a batch of 12 posts from them a months ago and they came out terrible.
They did not work, they, they missed the boat. So the big key is when you’re testing new teams and when you’re testing new service providers, start with small projects.
I think next time I do a site like this, I’ll be able to condense the first three months down into one month because I kind of get an idea of what the mistakes I made and this is why the fire ready, aim approach works is I didn’t know how to build this or do this from where I was three months ago.
Right? I now know hindsight, looking back based off the mistakes that I’ve made, I now have a really clear understanding of a better way to do it.
I didn’t learn the better way before I started.
I learned the better way by trying the best and giving it my best and looking back and thinking, oh man, if I would’ve done that and then that and then that and then that we probably would already be a lot farther along than we are. This is how we actually learn!
We had some HR issues, some challenges with some teammates I had brought on individual who has a lot of domain knowledge in the space of the niche of this website and he was doing our reviews for us. He wasn’t writing the reviews, but he was going through and choosing all of the different products because he knew these products and he was able to compare which ones were best and which ones was the best budget option, which one was the second best, third best, et cetera. He disappeared, right? He’s busy. He had a couple of jobs. This was the extra side thing and he just has not kept up to pace at this point. So we’re yet again, building another system around how do we get the actual reviews? Because this is the value I or you as an affiliate offer your audience is really taking the time to actually do a quality review.
It’s not good enough to just go choose five random things and say, cool. Here they are. There should be actually some helpful information and insight for your audience member because that’s what they want, right? Your income is a byproduct of helping other people get what they want. So our goal is not just to publish reviews on anything. We actually do want to know what’s good and what’s not, and we want to help steer our audience in the right direction. So that’s another challenge, right? And you probably have noticed me as someone who’s leveraging my money and my income from my other businesses to build this right? This is an investment for me. There’s all kinds of HR challenges left and right. If you’re doing all of the work yourself, you buy press that 100% and that’s what my wife and I did in the beginning.
