Hello all!
I have a question. what type of business or store that we can generate cash $1300 a day thru affiliate website.I am refering to small site not bizrate or Simmon ect. Is it possible? if it's possible Do you focus just only one product or many products to target. What's it? which's product? The customers need every day ,but it's only offer on the net. Can some share a litte big information.

As an Aff Manager I can tell you that affiliates DO indeed earn that kind of money. Generally they are focused on a specific product category, but feature many products within that category - perhaps even from many different merchants. It is also possible to earn that kind of commish if you focus on one specific product/brand and are able to rank really well (organic serps) within a highly competitive environment (or do lots of PPC ads). It's not hard to "make money" - the real issue is how much are you gonna have to pay to generate the traffic you need to make that money, OR how long you're willing to wait for organic placement.

Anyone can make $1300 a day...if they're willing to spend $1400 in Overture clicks.

One way to find products to pitch is to log into CJ.com. Sort advertisers by highest EPC and highest network earnings. Note the advertisers and products. Then type those results into Google/Yahoo and see how they're being sold.

I'm sure it's doable if you have enough traffic and promote items that cost four figures. I have yet to make that much in a day, but I've gotten enough $150 cuts (from 1 sale) to know it's possible.

Not true, at least for me. I don't have any sites that I would be ashamed to show to a 5 year old.

What I am curious to know, generally speaking, is if these high priced products are in particular niches (the usual 4, pharm, finance, adult, gambling) and/or are they services(web hosting, and the like), virtual products (ebooks) or actual products (plasma tvs?)

If anyone would care to venture some guesses, I'd love to hear it. Or, in other words, can I hear of a specific product (that perhaps you don't compete in) that would fall in the high price/high commission category?

rfung , its not a single niche . You dont have to be always in the big 3 (pharm.finance/gambling) , there are even Amazon affiliates making 5 digits a day .

>> specific product

Changes with seasons. LCD TVs were pretty good for us, netting about 10.25% for example.

I know someone else who is doing well with snowblowers and space heaters.

The first week of January is huge for dating sites.

The second week of January - end of January is big for flowers, chocolates, diamond rings etc.

Is it best to have a site dedicated to one product -- say, snowblowers -- or a "catch-all" site that focuses on new products as they become popular?

Yes, I do, actually more than $1300 a day in last 12 months, 90%+ through affiliate income.
No, my site don't promote any sex nor gambling site, only site like Amazon.
Rome was not built in a day, I have been spending 6 years in working on the site. At the first 6-8 months, the income was tiny, less than 500/month. And I have to spent more than 12 hours/day, 6-7 days a week, in promotion and web site enhancement. I didn't have too many money to spend, I have to do it everything myself. Luckily, the time investment pay off.

are you refering to building a website, or working with the PPC/Adwords straight to merchant?

website. My site is a useful tool for certain group of people.
I spend less than $100/month in PPC now. I don't think PPC to merchant worth my time spending on. I would rather build a merchant datafeed site with a ok domain name, if lucky enough, I may grab some return users.

Depends on your business plan and abilities.

Catch all sites have the ability to cross and upsell and can bring in huge amounts of traffic. A good example of this is Shopping.com.

Single purpose sites have the ability to focus in on a single niche and do very well in their specific niches. A good example of this is PDABuyersGuide.Com.

The key to both these models is to maintain focus on your business goals and not loose sight of your abilities.

Both these models have worked for a lot of people.

Find out what works for you, do you want a pricing comparision, a reviews site, a classifieds marketplace, forums? Do you want single merchant, multiple merchants?

I tend to prefer a model that requires planning. I might look at an affiliate niche for months before I can come up with an idea on how to integrate it in my portfolio. Many on the other hand test the program the second they signup by using PPC, I have never been able to figure out how that works.

It's great to see that even the great don't have(or need) all the answers.

During the Christmas season, I've made $1,400 or so gross a day (i.e. before expenses) a couple of times, with both days netting about $1,000 net income. I wish I could do that without the help of the christmas holiday, though. :)

wnshops - some people are silly enough to include one of their websites in their user profile...just a hint.
Best advice - diversify.
Don't copy a successful site completely, as that's unfair to the author. But learn from what they do that makes them so successful. Examine the top 3-5 results for a competitive, affiliate saturated market and look for similarities.

About a year ago I was wondering the same thing, but now i'm making close to 4 figures a month :-) Just about finding the right thing to advertise and running with it, very fast.

But due to the saturation going on in my market I think I may be going back to how I was last year... what to do next?

New feilds = new learning and testing that could result in losses of thousands... big risk there unless you have a partner, which I don't have :-(

I don't think anyone doing AM full time got there by having a risk averse attitude.
