MW018 – Back in The Studio, Crazy Affiliate Site Experiment, Affiliate Marketing With Pintrest, Selling Chocolate and Syndicating Your Content
Summary: This week, we talk about my affiliate website on a farm tool (I know, right?); we discuss Internet Marketing buddies, Affiliate marketing with Pinterest, selling Chocolate online, and a listener question on syndication. This is the podcast where we talk about how to build internet businesses one night at at time. Shout out to Pat Flynn at Smart Passive Income -- thanks for the bumper to kick off the show. Farm Tool Site In this episode, I talk about my experiment with Keyword Canine. I explain how Josh gave me a keyword at random for a farm tool. I just registered the domain and I created a small site. I am already getting a nice steady stream of organic traffic. As promised, here are the traffic stats. I walk through everything that I did in to create the site in the episode. As of today, the site has made about $8.00 I mentioned ArticleBuilder.net, phpBay and 1WayLinks.net in the episode. Motivational Segment You need friends in your niche. It helps with motivation. I discuss this idea at length in the episode. It't the little extra stuff that keeps you going. Make a friend today. Affiliate Marketing With Pintrest I review a great article about Pintrest in Lynn Terry's blog. Pintrest is a photo-based wishboard social networking site. It's growing really fast. Is it the next facebook? Hard to tell, but if you get on top if these social media sites before they explode, you can really ride the wave. Great article worth a read. Selling Chocolate. I mention how Loretta Oliver (my transcriptionist and friend at http://www.teleseminarstranscribed.com) told me that she wanted to hear about chocolate on the podcast. So, in this episode, I talk about how you can sell anything on the internet (including chocolate.) I can't eat chocolate right now (on a diet), but we can talk about it. There are lots of searches for Chocolate. You could look for long-tail keywords and build a niche website. Cool, eh? Syndicating your content. Thinking about taking the article you just wrote for you blog and posting elsewhere on the web? I don't think you should do that, and I discuss why in this part of the show.

Episode 018 Transcript How about that, it’s episode 18 and we’re still on track, still rolling weekly. I’m loving this weekly action, I hope you’re enjoying it at least half as much as I am. I’m really glad to be back in the studio. I’ll tell you what. I’m a laughable disaster on the road when it comes to podcasting. I’m really going to have to work on that in the future. If I’m going to keep a weekly schedule I’ve got to travel sometimes, I’m going to be rolling around places and I’ve got to be able to do that on the road stuff.
