As affiliate marketers it’s always fun to see big numbers. A lot of us use PPC and PPC can produce tremendous results in a short amount of time. My question to you is: Are You Overlooking Organic SEO as a revenue stream.
About 2 years ago I had the idea of creating a rather complex coupons & deals website to push organic traffic into merchant based affiliate programs. Such programs as you would find on Commission Junction, Linkshare & Shareasale. After a dispute with my developer and deciding to focus more on PPC to CPA type offers, I gave up on the project. We had loaded the site with a decent amount of content and since that day it’s just been siiting dormant on the web. Every month I get a check from CJ or Linkshare and don’t even know what it’s for. I log into my accounts to find that this dormant site is generating sales. All of my development costs that were basically wasted were paid back to me in strangling commissions. Pretty amazing if you ask me.
There are so many great tools out there like PHPbay, BB Wolfes WFReview Plugin etc that can help you build content rich sites in minutes. It may be worth your time to cast your net out there and create some sites that will pull in a stream of commissions without much work or expense.
