I created my first affiliate website back in the summer of 2001. I believe it was call TheElite-TeamUp.com and was clearly not the best name I could have chosen haha. You can actually see what that website looks like if you click here (opens in a new window).
Since then I have built a ton of websites ranging in various categories like affiliate sites, adsense sites, membership sites, landing pages, blogs, PHP coded sites, network marketing sites and personal sites.
This has been one of the most valuable experiences for me and I have learned so much from this that I would never had learned in school or university. The networks I’ve built and the things I have experimented with have been incredibly rewarding for me.
Today I mainly focus on one single affiliate website. It’s a danish site, where I teach people how to build WordPress websites. I create videos that give clear instructions and refer visitors to two of the hosting companies I use myself. It’s not a goldmine but I really enjoy helping people get started with WordPress and the sites gives me the opportunity to test out some LEAN experiments.
I will be documenting here how I try to take this fairly simple affiliate site and see if it’s possible to turn it into a paid membership site. The idea is to use principles from the Lean Canvas and apply them to my affiliate site to see if I can make a small business out of it. Stay tuned as new posts will be added below.
Although the danish affiliate competition is over I decided to keep tracking the statistics of my latest site and share it all with you here. It’s about time to reveal the traffic and commissions for last month. What did I get done in april? I managed to write a single article about Market Samurais new […]
So here we are again … April fools day and I’ve just had a look at my Commissions Junction and Google Analytics accounts to see the status for last month. The competition is actually already over! One of the guys hit the 5.000 kr. mark (just under $900) in april 2012 only 100 days after […]
It’s that time of the month again! Wow time goes by so quickly! I have now been living in Indonesia for 1 month and it’s been absolutely fantastic! I love the place and the people that I am working with – it’s just awesome! We have been very busy here designing our new edutainment game, […]
So January month of 2012 is now over and in this month I only managed to add a couple of articles and 2 new videos to the website lav din egen hjemmeside which I am competing with in the Danish Adsense/affiliate marketing competition. I wanted to add a lot more content in January, but due […]
It’s the first day of the new year, and I’ve been looking over my stats for the danish website called Lav Din Egen Hjemmeside which is going to be a complete video guide on how you can setup your own WordPress website. A niche like this would be pretty damn hard to compete in on Google.com […]
I recently joined up with a couple of guys from the entrepreneur forum called Amino.dk here in Denmark, and they have started a competition to see who is the first to reach an income of 5.000 kr (about $900) in a whole month. I thought it sounded like a cool competition and a great chance […]
