Hey you affiliate gurus :) As I am new to this kind of business I have a lot of questions to ask in this forum, but first... I made my first affiliate website a few months ago. It advertises only one product (music self-instructor) but I didn't even make any sale. I spent money on Google AdWords and Yahoo, but without success. Now I am back in the game and want start a new program, but I don't know what will be better - if I promote only one product, or many products and services? Is there any niche, which is recommended for beginners, like magazines or something else?
Thank you guys ang good luck to all!

The best niche for beginners is one you know something about. Seriously, do you have a hobby, a personal interest, a job, about which you could write? Are their products related to that subject? Start with what you know.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, by the way.

Thanks "purplecape"! I have lots of hobbies and my first affiliate program was actually about one of them - music. I followed one method from a book, which I read, called ProjectX. Maybe it was wrong... and I have to get back on it and change the content or I don't know... Can some of you guys take a look on my page and say what is wrong, I will send you a link. Thanks a lot!

It takes time to get traction--after a few months, were you actually getting much traffic? Also, I am a skeptic about the one-product approach. I have a niche site where I provide information to a particular community. I recommend books as part of that--reviews, book lists, etc.

The "cpc" was very high and I didn't get much traffic, but I used only very very targeted keywords, like "buy..."etc. and I didn't make any sale. Maybe i shоud find another niche and promote many goods or services. With this first try I just wanted to find out, if the whole system really works :) you know, when you made even only one sale, then you realize, that you can do it :)) But sometimes we have to wait more time and still believe

Sometimes it takes a few hundred visitors that hit the add to cart button before making a sale, then you could end up getting 5-10 sales in the next 100 visitors. The key is to get a lot of traffic.
