Affiliate Marketing Website UPDATE! Year 2 Profits Revealed

The above is a brief introduction to Affiliate Marketing Website UPDATE! Year 2 Profits Revealed.

Let's move on to the first section of Affiliate Marketing Website UPDATE! Year 2 Profits Revealed!

Affiliate Marketing Website UPDATE! Year 2 Profits Revealed

hey miles here milesbeckler.com this
video is
the year two update for my affiliate
marketing case study website build
two years ago i started a brand new
website in a niche that i'm not an
expert in
to see if it was possible to grow a
website up to three thousand dollars per
month revenue
from scratch now you're gonna learn
about the crazy ride that's been over
the course of two years
all of the things that have happened and
i've got all kinds of data how much
money it's making how much money it's
made in total
the traffic and kind of what i'm working
on now because i'm at a different phase
in the business at this point in time
you're going to get a lot of value from
this video
so let's jump into the presentation now
i'm going to go ahead and move right
onto the first slide which is the
affiliate marketer's credo
so we've got to start with the core
ethos that i need to just keep reminding
you of
and that is that you will get everything
you want in life if you help enough
other people get what they want
and that's what we affiliate marketers
do right we create content that ranks on
the search engines
so when a user of google goes and
searches for
what's the best chef's knife for
left-handed cook
they find wonderful content right so my
income
is relevant to how many people i'm
helping and the quality of the content
i'm publishing
that actually helps them answer their
questions and solve their problems
so i do have a lot of previous updates
for this if you go to youtube just right
here search miles beckler affiliate
marketing case study
do you see the the one that i put in a
box down below
that's a playlist and it's got all of
the videos relevant to this
including the year one update i'm not
going to cover everything i covered in
the previous ones this is going to be
new content and if you're like miles i
just want to know how to do
affiliate marketing i like i want the
tactikal step-by-step that's not what
this
is but i have that for you just search
miles beckler affiliate marketing
and it's this video it's about an hour
13 and it is a
deep dive on the exact steps that you
need to take
to replicate this process and build out
your own successful website online so
let's jump right into the income how
much money is this website making so
in the last month okay so so the actual
last calendar month which is
may 1st through may 31st uh this site
made 3705.83
you can see right here the screenshot
from amazon i was 3 200
from amazon but i have a couple of other
places that it's earning income from
uh to the tune of about 500 more that's
where that's why the total income number
is a little bit higher
and note i am not running advertising so
i could turn on izolic or mediavine or
even google ads to generate
additional revenue um i just don't want
to slow down my site and maybe i'll do
it in the future maybe i won't so
there's there's still
money to be made they're still juiced to
be squeezed now the total number of
visitors right how many visitors to my
website in that time period that same
month
did it take to generate that income it's
20 489 and you can see
this graph is trending a little bit up
and that's going to be
important to know in a little bit
because you're going to see how the the
graph trended way down for a period of
time and this is the full income okay so
two years this website has made a total
of eighty one thousand
five hundred and fifty four dollars in
two years so that's a little over forty
thousand dollars per year is the average
and as you can see do you see the first
six or seven months it made nothing
right like literally it took about
10 months for it to make its first
thousand dollars so in that average
it's obviously clumped together and
you're also probably notiking there's a
giant cliff that it fell off at one
point in time
and we will tok about what that cliff
is where that came from and why that
income dropped from over ten thousand
dollars per month
down to uh literally as low as about a
thousand dollars per month at the lowest
a few months later
you'll understand what that is and how
i'm getting it to bounce
back up because you notike the graph is
going back up at this point in time so
let's kind of dig
deeper into this now there's always
going to be a correlation
between the amount of content you're
publishing and the revenue okay
so the red line on this chart is the
number of
posts that i've published total now the
red line the um
the numbers for the red line are on the
right side of the graph so where i got
that first arrow where it says 80 points
and nine months in
that's where i made my first 100 now
it's probably
important for me to remind you that i've
built multiple successful websites
before
this is not my first rodeo i made my
first money online in 2003 and i've been
full time at this since 2010. so
starting this in 2019 i've been
full-time online for nine years at that
point in time
and it still took me full time going
full speed ahead with this
nine months to make my first 100 the key
here for you
is to remember that those first four
months six months eight months nine
months
and more can be very difficult because
you feel like you're putting in all this
energy do you notike that red line it
was going up at maximum speed
and it took me putting 80 posts up
before i generated enough traffic and
enough
clicks with the right kind of traffic to
actually generate enough sales to make
a hundred dollars and then the second
arrow up there about four months ago
that's the last post that i published i
am not having more content written i'm
not writing content i am
doing things to improve the site at this
point in time but i really feel like
i've got all of the core posts that need
to be up up
so the costs of energy time money
to keep the site going at this point are
tiny
and you can see the rewards are climbing
back up so let's dig even deeper into
this okay so this is the traffic and
this is kind of like the annotated
timeline of the
entire kind of life cycle of this
website
so in total 782 346 visits
in two years is what i've put up you can
see on the far left of the timeline the
first post was published it doesn't look
like anything's happened
um it took six months and 45 posts for
me to make my first dollar online i made
a dollar fifty that month
and then you can see the third little
arrow is where amazon cut the
commissions
so this is the first kind of crazy part
of this roller coaster that i've been on
that is this affiliate site build
amazon cut my commissions in half right
when the traffic was at a local
high but we carried on anyways and then
you can see 120 posts were published and
that's about midway through
and from that 120 post through the last
post that was only about 30 posts
published
and then we have the december algorithm
update now that's the big
arrow in the middle kind of up on the
right side and you can see that it the
traffic literally just fell
off a cliff and this is something that
ultimately
every online entrepreneur knows there's
always platform risk
the vendors that you're promoting amazon
in this case
can cut your commissions they can even
close your account right and then the
platforms that you're publishing to
which in this case was google through
seo they can change their algorithm and
our websites can completely
disappear from their algorithm right and
then you see the little box i've got at
the bottom right where it says recovery
if you notike it's starting to go up at
this point in time over the last couple
of months we've been increasing in
traffic we will zoom in on that in a
moment but
i want to kind of go big picture with
you and help
remind you that um if you've thought
that making money online is easy
um if you're following some gurus who
are trying to make it sound simple and
easy like you could make money in 30
days or 60 days
as a full-time internet marketer with
about
19 years experience making money online
it still took me
a very nine months to start making
noteworthy income 10 months to make my
first thousand dollars with this brand
new website
and then it's been a bit of a rocky ride
and this is what we entrepreneurs do
we take risk on everything in life has
risk
and reward okay everything we do there's
a risk reward for it
if you jump on an airplane there's risk
driving to the airport okay
there's risk in the airplane itself
there's risk at whatever destination you
go to
but the reward of being there taking
that vacation or doing whatever you're
doing
the reward is worth the risk so yes
there's risk from amazon there's risk
from affiliate vendors there's platform
risk and this isn't just google
right if you're running facebook ads
into a funnel facebook could turn off
your ad account and there's always going
to be risk and that's
okay as an entrepreneur you just need to
understand that their risks
are there and you need to move forward
as best you can to try to stay in
compliance with the platforms you're
publishing on
always focusing in houses working and
being ready to adapt and evolve as we go
which i'm going to share with you what
i'm doing to adapt and evolve now that
we are on the path
so on this one we're looking in the
recovery okay we're zooming in on that
little box on the right
and you can see month over month so this
is may data
compared to the month before that which
is april data with one extra day because
they don't have the same number of dates
in the month
you can see my traffic is up 45.9
right so i am actively going
into the old content and improving it
i'm not publishing new content
and today it's taking me about two or
three hours per week to just
consistently go in make little
improvements on a few posts
consistently go in make little
improvements on a few posts and this is
the result of
kind of that type of effort so let's
tok about the total amount of energy
and money
invested in the asset now if you have
watched this before
you if you've seen my previous updates
you know that i wanted to build this
completely hands-off
with outsourcing everything now you
might not be in a position to do that
and i understand it right i'm blessed in
my life to have the cash flow and the
abundance to invest in other people to
build this for me but you need to
remember that the money and the
investment
it's simply a replacement for time okay
so if you don't have a bunch of money to
invest that's fine
you just put in your time and your
energy writing and you can start
this kind of a business for less than a
hundred dollars which is exactly what my
wife and i did on our first
website in 2009 we co-founded a website
we spent 95 dollars and 40 cents
on hosting to get our domain and hosting
up and we wrote
and did all of the work ourselves and
that site has now generated millions of
dollars online
so i am yes leveraging other people's
energy by paying them money but you can
go forth doing the work yourself
now the total amount of money i've
invested was sixty six thousand seven
hundred and eighty one dollars now
in the year one update which that
playlist i mentioned above all the links
are in the description below
um in the year one update i was
comparing this to a real estate
investment
so i was wanting to invest some monies
and i was thinking about doing another
rental another real estate investment
but i decided to invest in a website to
compare the two so
the total money invested at this point
in time was 66 781 dollars
and in total it's about 3 400 hours over
the course of two years
which is about 30 hours per week so if
you're putting in your time and your
energy
know that i've applied about 32 hours a
week of life energy
and again i've had the skills from
building successful white
light from building successful websites
before
so if it's your first one it might take
a little longer but eventually you'll
figure it out
now in total like the grand total from
all of the income that's come in and all
of the money that's been invested
i have profited over 14 000 now right
now as of right now
my current monthly expenses are about
185 dollars so
just under under 200 for all of my
expenses
less a few hours per week of my time to
go in and tinker with things which i'll
explain here
and the three tools is the ai tool that
i'll tok about later
the keyword research tool that i
obviously tok about a lot on this and
obviously web hosting because my site
needs to stay up
my minimum expected profits moving
forward is 3 500
per month which is 42 000 a year so
essentially
over the course of two years from what
is equivalent of about 3 400 hours of
effort
or from 66 000 in investment
i've been able to build an asset that is
now spitting out
3 500 per month now this destroys the
potential
of real estate okay so comparing like
real estate investing
to websites for me it is absolutely
abundantly clear that for a 66 000
cash investment to get a full cash on
cash return on investment within two
years
and a 3 500 per month cash flow positive
cash flow
without all the expenses of or risks of
a roof or a water heater
it is a far superior investment for me
luckily i've got some skills that's
obviously invest in what you know that's
what i'm doing here
and the other option is for me to sell
this website right i could
generate a gigantik payday so what would
the website be worth well
i went through a very common and very
well-known website evaluator
and i ran the numbers i followed it step
by step put them into the t with 100
accurate and honest numbers the website
is worth about 194
460 000 so if i wanted a big payday
i could go essentially cash this thing
out and i could go
get a cash flow injection but i don't
want the cash injection because that
means i would have to pay
taxes on this and i don't really want to
increase my tax liability i actually
like
having that cash flow because this cash
flow is paying for my dream car
which i just posted on instagram so if
you haven't seen i bought a six-figure
dream car it's incredible uh
instagram.com miles beckler um but so
it's it's literally it's paying for my
mortgage and it's paying for my dream
car that was a six-figure dream car
i'm just gonna let it sit i'm just gonna
let it ride i'm gonna let this asset
pay for those two liabilities and i'm
just going to carry on enjoying my life
this is the potential you can literally
build
skills while you're learning you could
build an asset
from your time and energy and that asset
can ultimately be worth hundreds of
thousands of dollars if not millions of
dollars
and it can generate the kind of cash
flow that you need now i want to tok
about this cash flow for a second so
if you were to put a million dollars
into an index fund like a vanguard index
fund okay so if you had a million
dollars invested
they have something called the four
percent safe withdrawal rate and that
means you can safely withdraw four
percent per year
every year and that's what you can live
on okay so that's forty thousand dollars
per year
so in two years time with a bunch of
energy
and or money i was able to build what is
an equivalent asset to having a million
dollars saved up which means
i'm kind of able to live a millionaire
lifestyle meaning my house is paid for
my dream car is paid for and i got cash
left over to cover life and fuel and all
the other fun things i want
right there and i built it from the
ground up and that's the power here and
i want you to remember that the next two
years of your life
they're gonna carry on whether you build
assets or not i've just chosen to show
up
every single day i show up seven days a
week for my audience whether i'm in the
email whether i'm in my forums whether
i'm on social whether i'm making videos
and publishing videos or commenting in
the youtube comments i'm here seven days
a week every day
now i've been putting out videos for
five years the crazy thing about time
is that time just carries on so ask
yourself are you doing the work are you
putting in the time
because if you're not you're not going
to build an asset over the next two
years the next two years are going to go
by anyways you might as well be doing
what it takes to build the asset
now let's jump back in i want to finish
up this presentation and show you the
last things
um we already covered the energy
invested let me go ahead and get control
over here real quick
so how am i improving the site right i'm
in that recovery phase at this point in
time
and i truly expect this website to be
making four or five grand per month
every month
so my estimate of 42 grand a year from
this is what i consider a very
very conservative and low estimate so
i'm improving
titles and descriptions on high
impression low
click through posts now i'm getting this
data from the google
webmasters tool and you can just look at
all your content and all your posts you
can see what's getting
the most number of impressions and then
right next to
in the column it shows how many clicks
you're getting and the ones that have
low clicks for high impressions that
means your title and your description
aren't compelling and the ai tool jarvis
that i'll mention here i'll show you
what it is in a second
that's what you can use to improve your
titles to make them more compelling
number two is i'm really improving the
introductions now sometimes this is one
paragraph and sometimes this is about
three or four paragraphs
but really making them more compelling
and again the ai tool jarvis is perfect
for this because
if the reader lands on your page and
they click and they start reading
and it's terrible content it doesn't
make a big promise it doesn't make them
feel like they're truly going to get the
answer that they want
doesn't make them feel like they can
trust you in the first two or three
lines
they're gonna click back and they're
gonna go to another person on google
that's showing up in the search results
around you
so really improving the click which is
the title that shows up in google
and the first words that they read when
they get on that page the first couple
of paragraphs
really needs to hook them in and that ai
tool jarvis that i'll mention in a
minute
that's really helping the other thing
i'm doing is i'm going through i'm
deleting and 31 redirecting poor quality
content so since i was outsourcing all
of this
my quality control got very poor for a
while i was
so hands off that i wasn't notiking that
there was a lot of
average and sometimes rubbish content
being published and this is a part of
why we got hit so hard with that
algorithm update
we had some pretty bad content on the
website so i've been improving it with
the ai tool right to make it better
content but sometimes i find a piece of
content that well
this post and this post are kind of
saying the same thing so i'm deleting
the one that's getting no visits and no
impressions
and i'm doing a 301 redirect over the
one that's working if you need to learn
how to do that stuff obviously you can
just search right here
in youtube it's really easy to set up
301 redirects inside of wordpress
there's a tool called redirection or
redirect that does it for you
um constantly updating dead product
links and recommendations
it's it's very much um recurring income
which is great but there's still work to
be done
and then i'm improving the user
experience so i'm trying to get more
eyeballs on more affiliate links
i'm taking the top three or top five and
i'm actually putting a short list
right up at the top below the title
giving them the ability to hold control
and click click click click
open up all of the options really quick
thusly planting a bunch of cookies right
then and there
then jarvis so the seo tool that i'm
toking about this is one of the tools
that i am it's a part of that and eighty
dollars per month that i'm still
spending
um the unlimited level this helps me
build out outlines it helps me build out
hooks
titles descriptions really compelling
content better sub heads anything i need
to do i can really improve
the quality of my content and really the
conversion and persuasion potential of
my content
through this tool so if you haven't
tried it yet it's at milesbector.com
jarvis
i'm obviously an affiliate for this so
obviously i get a kickback but
the only reason i'm actually
recommending this is because this is
what i'm using
to improve my content and for a lot of
you writing compelling titles writing
compelling descriptions writing
really truly juicy hooks that draw
people in and compelling bullets
that's really difficult to do persuasion
is a difficult skill
and this tool will level you up and
level up your persuasion
massively i've also shown in other
videos where i review this
that you can write entire long form blog
posts
super fast when you understand how to do
this because remember it's important to
keep your mind on the fact that i had to
publish 156
or so blog posts to get this where it
needs to be right
it took 90 posts before i got my first
100
in income so if you're writing 90 posts
manually and this thing can save you
time
you can write posts twice as fast that
means you're just going to get to your
destination
that much faster we live in a powerful
time where some of these ai tools are
actually really helpful for us marketers
so this is the one tool that's kind of
staying on the books for me
in my business keeping this moving
forward and then last thing here
you're gonna you gotta build skills to
build assets so if you don't have the
skills of building successful websites
which i happen to have when i started
this
that's what you're actually learning on
your first website build
now if you go to my website which is
milesbechler.com you can see
where i got number one find a niche i've
got a five minute niche finder process
if you've never been able to figure out
your niche if you're still stuck on the
question what niche do i go into
go through the find a niche link right
there on my top navigation
it shows you walks you through my five
minute niche finder process which is
exactly what i used
to choose the niche for this website
that's now made over eighty thousand
dollars for me
and then number two you start your blog
that's just literally go find a niche
start your blog
begin publishing i have on that start
your blog post there's a way for you to
get access to a bunch of free wordpress
tutorials
it's right up top there and then if you
need other help if you want
guidance more guidance like video
tutorials showing you every step of the
way
click on the resources tab up on the
link i've underlined that in red just
click on the resources tab
and from that resources tab you'll find
some of my recommended affiliate
marketing
tools and also the recommend affiliate
marketing
trainings if you do want deep dive video
trainings but ultimately just remember
that you're moving forward
and you're really building skills while
you build assets
and the key to life what wealthy people
understand that non-wealthy people don't
understand
is collecting and building assets is the
name of the game
so now that this asset only takes me two
or three hours per week to continue to
improve
and it's generating enough light enough
money for me to live off of
i'm dedicating my time to building more
assets okay
and as i stack on these assets my wife's
website and brand
my youtube channel my blog and brand i
got my social ad class
tool right as i build these assets out
they go on
month after month after month and they
continue to generate cash flow for me
with very tiny amounts of energy okay
it's not passive
but it's highly leveraged and it's
recurring income it's residual
income so that 3 500 a month is gonna
carry on and grow with three hours per
week of effort
and now i'm gonna go build another one
the other side of building other ones is
it safeguards me against any crazy
platform risk because as you saw in this
presentation
google slapped me amazon cut my
commissions in half this is not a risk
free this is not
easy this is challenging building
businesses and being an entrepreneur is
difficult it's
inherently risky so once you get one of
them firing and it's carrying on to
generate cash flow
on its own i highly recommend starting
your second one never start two at once
it's
three to four times more difficult to
build two things at once than it is to
build one thing
up for a couple of years to get it
really out of that kind of
escape velocity and then you start the
next one once this one's off and running
by itself
that's when you start the next one i
hope this has been helpful for you if
you've enjoyed this video give me a
thumbs up let me know in the comments
below
i'm going to continue to put out videos
for you so subscribe like do all of the
social things i appreciate it really
highly check
really highly recommend you check out
the resources and the links in the
description
and on that note i'm going to call it so
i'll see on the next video till then be
well
