00:00:00 00:00:05 hey miles here miles Becker calm this
00:00:02 00:00:07 video is the official one-year update to
00:00:05 00:00:09 my affiliate marketing case study built
00:00:07 00:00:11 a year ago I decided to take on the
00:00:09 00:00:13 challenge of starting a brand new
00:00:11 00:00:15 website in a niche that I'm not an
00:00:13 00:00:18 expert in to see if my team and I could
00:00:15 00:00:21 ultimately grow a new website to three
00:00:18 00:00:24 thousand dollars per month in revenue
00:00:21 00:00:25 within one year of time so we're gonna
00:00:24 00:00:27 jump on the computer and I've got a
00:00:25 00:00:29 bunch of slides put together that goes
00:00:27 00:00:30 through all of the different data and
00:00:29 00:00:31 ultimately you're gonna get to answer
00:00:30 00:00:33 the question for yourself
00:00:31 00:00:34 does affiliate marketing still work but

00:00:40 00:00:44 there's no webinar to register there's
00:00:42 00:00:46 no often required for any of the

00:00:52 00:00:57 if you are indeed interested so let's
00:00:54 00:00:58 jump in okay the question again is does
00:00:57 00:01:00 affiliate marketing still work because I
00:00:58 00:01:01 hear this question a lot some people
00:01:00 00:01:04 think the markets too saturated
00:01:01 00:01:06 I think it's wide open so I put my money
00:01:04 00:01:09 where my mouth was and I started a test
00:01:06 00:01:11 a year ago now here's exactly what
00:01:09 00:01:13 you're going to learn first how much
00:01:11 00:01:15 money my affiliate site made in the full
00:01:13 00:01:17 year okay the whole year combined and
00:01:15 00:01:19 how much it's making per month right now
00:01:17 00:01:20 you're also gonna learn how to get
00:01:19 00:01:22 started on a budget without wasting
00:01:20 00:01:24 money on any of the affiliate guru
00:01:22 00:01:26 courses there's way too many fake gurus
00:01:24 00:01:29 in this world I have five separate
00:01:26 00:01:31 profitable websites I've been doing this
00:01:29 00:01:34 successfully since 2003 so I give away
00:01:31 00:01:35 all the how-to information free here on
00:01:34 00:01:38 YouTube you're gonna learn exactly how
00:01:35 00:01:40 much time and energy and work that this
00:01:38 00:01:41 took to build right like how much time
00:01:40 00:01:44 and energy did it take for me to get
00:01:41 00:01:45 these specific results and then I'm
00:01:44 00:01:47 gonna break it down looking at websites
00:01:45 00:01:49 versus real estate as an investment
00:01:47 00:01:51 which one is actually a better
00:01:49 00:01:53 investment and the reason I'm doing this
00:01:51 00:01:56 is because if you learn the skill and
00:01:53 00:01:58 the craft of building affiliate websites
00:01:56 00:02:01 what you're actually able to do is build
00:01:58 00:02:04 assets and the most similar type of
00:02:01 00:02:05 asset that I can think of is real estate
00:02:04 00:02:06 is a rental property so we're gonna
00:02:05 00:02:09 actually compare the numbers
00:02:06 00:02:11 side-by-side to see how this world of
00:02:09 00:02:12 building affiliate website stacks up to
00:02:11 00:02:15 the world
00:02:12 00:02:17 of real estate investing I'm an active
00:02:15 00:02:18 real estate investor investor I've been
00:02:17 00:02:20 investing for over 10 years my wife and
00:02:18 00:02:22 I met at real estate school so I've got

00:02:56 00:03:00 no pitch there's no webinars there's no
00:02:58 00:03:02 I'm not selling anything I teach the
00:03:00 00:03:03 entire process there but before you run
00:03:02 00:03:05 away and jump over that let's get into
00:03:03 00:03:07 the actual data and how about we show
00:03:05 00:03:09 you some of the money okay what is this
00:03:07 00:03:11 website doing right we've put a lot of
00:03:09 00:03:13 time energy building this thing how what
00:03:11 00:03:15 are the results so this is from Amazon
00:03:13 00:03:18 affiliate Commission right this is my
00:03:15 00:03:20 Amazon only I am generating commissions
00:03:18 00:03:22 from other networks as well beyond
00:03:20 00:03:24 Amazon but this is the biggest one and
00:03:22 00:03:25 in the last 30 days this website has
00:03:24 00:03:27 brought in five thousand eight hundred
00:03:25 00:03:29 and twenty four dollars from Amazon
00:03:27 00:03:32 alone it's brought in over three hundred
00:03:29 00:03:34 dollars from the other platform so it's
00:03:32 00:03:37 brought in about sixty 100 or so dollars
00:03:34 00:03:39 in commissions in the last thirty days
00:03:37 00:03:42 and I want to remind you that this is
00:03:39 00:03:44 after Amazon has made their affiliate
00:03:42 00:03:46 program kind of Commission change which
00:03:44 00:03:48 we'll tok about a little bit here so
00:03:46 00:03:50 the goal was three thousand dollars per
00:03:48 00:03:52 month within one year and we hit six
00:03:50 00:03:55 thousand dollars per month within one
00:03:52 00:03:56 year this stuff works is the first thing
00:03:55 00:03:59 you know but I want to go deeper because
00:03:56 00:04:00 now we're looking at the last quarter so
00:03:59 00:04:02 this is a 90 day window I think it's
00:04:00 00:04:04 maybe like 88 days it's not perfectly 90
00:04:02 00:04:07 days um this is essentially the most
00:04:04 00:04:08 data I can get out of Amazon in one shot
00:04:07 00:04:10 I got a big red arrow that shows you
00:04:08 00:04:12 exactly where Amazon cut their
00:04:10 00:04:14 Commission's and if you notike my
00:04:12 00:04:16 Commission's were on the rise until
00:04:14 00:04:18 Amazon made the cut and then it dropped
00:04:16 00:04:21 down but if you notike we're on the rise
00:04:18 00:04:23 again and it's growing and in the last
00:04:21 00:04:25 quarter this website has brought in over
00:04:23 00:04:27 16,000 dollars from this
00:04:25 00:04:29 network over $1,000 from the other
00:04:27 00:04:31 Network so it's brought in about $17,000
00:04:29 00:04:34 or so and you can see we've actually
00:04:31 00:04:35 sold something to the tune of 438
00:04:34 00:04:38 thousand dollars worth of product here
00:04:35 00:04:39 from this website so that's that's what
00:04:38 00:04:41 we affiliates are doing right
00:04:39 00:04:43 I'm helping so many people learn and
00:04:41 00:04:45 figure out exactly which one they want
00:04:43 00:04:47 to buy that I'm helping Amazon generate
00:04:45 00:04:49 nearly a half a million dollars per
00:04:47 00:04:51 quarter in sales right now and for that
00:04:49 00:04:53 activity I've earned about sixteen
00:04:51 00:04:55 thousand dollars now this is the
00:04:53 00:04:57 full-year commission okay so this is a
00:04:55 00:04:59 graph I made this graph I can't get a
00:04:57 00:05:01 year of data from Amazon unfortunately
00:04:59 00:05:03 so I made this graft inside of Excel and
00:05:01 00:05:04 really what I want you to see here
00:05:03 00:05:07 what's really really most important is
00:05:04 00:05:09 to notike that it didn't really start to
00:05:07 00:05:10 scale it didn't really start to get into
00:05:09 00:05:12 momentum I think momentum is the right
00:05:10 00:05:15 word so we didn't get into momentum
00:05:12 00:05:18 until about month nine month ten now in
00:05:15 00:05:20 months zero through month ten we were
00:05:18 00:05:21 full-on and I'm gonna tok about how
00:05:20 00:05:22 many hours we went into it how much
00:05:21 00:05:24 money we spent and how many posts we
00:05:22 00:05:26 made I'm gonna get you that data but I
00:05:24 00:05:29 want you to know that we were
00:05:26 00:05:31 aggressively massively taking action as
00:05:29 00:05:33 much action as we possibly could and at
00:05:31 00:05:34 month six it didn't look like a damn
00:05:33 00:05:35 thing was going on month five nothing
00:05:34 00:05:37 was going on
00:05:35 00:05:39 month four it was nothing but stress and
00:05:37 00:05:41 this is the first big lesson for you if
00:05:39 00:05:43 you're an affiliate marketer if you're
00:05:41 00:05:44 starting an affiliate marketing is that
00:05:43 00:05:46 somewhere around month three through
00:05:44 00:05:48 month six people are like ah does this
00:05:46 00:05:50 really work I'm not really seeing any
00:05:48 00:05:52 results and I want you to remember I
00:05:50 00:05:54 started making money online in 2003 I
00:05:52 00:05:56 have five very very very profitable
00:05:54 00:05:59 websites out of my profitable websites
00:05:56 00:06:01 this one is the least profitable by an
00:05:59 00:06:02 order of magnitude okay so that's a
00:06:01 00:06:05 little perspective I knew what I was
00:06:02 00:06:07 doing I'm good at this and it still took
00:06:05 00:06:10 me about nine months to get this going
00:06:07 00:06:12 now if it takes you longer than that
00:06:10 00:06:13 because this is your first website build
00:06:12 00:06:15 does it really matter
00:06:13 00:06:17 is it worth however long it takes to
00:06:15 00:06:18 generate a cash flow of three thousand
00:06:17 00:06:20 four thousand five six thousand dollars
00:06:18 00:06:22 per month to me personally it is which
00:06:20 00:06:25 is why I put my time money energy in
00:06:22 00:06:26 this direction for you you got to make
00:06:25 00:06:28 that decision on your own
00:06:26 00:06:29 I got to make sure it's clear like I'm
00:06:28 00:06:31 not saying anyone's gonna make any
00:06:29 00:06:33 specific amount of money I'm not making
00:06:31 00:06:35 any claims I'm literally looking at the
00:06:33 00:06:37 exact data that I was able to create
00:06:35 00:06:38 because I'm the only person in this
00:06:37 00:06:39 world I can control
00:06:38 00:06:41 I don't know what you're gonna do moving
00:06:39 00:06:43 forward I hope you take action but it's
00:06:41 00:06:44 it's on you from there so you can also
00:06:43 00:06:47 see where Amazon cut their Commission's
00:06:44 00:06:49 it really didn't affect my business much
00:06:47 00:06:51 I maybe would have gone up to a little
00:06:49 00:06:53 bit higher octave I may be at $8,000 a
00:06:51 00:06:55 month before the cuts but hey at $6,000
00:06:53 00:06:57 per month revenue when I thought or will
00:06:55 00:07:00 my goal was 3000 a month I think it was
00:06:57 00:07:01 a big time victory for me and my team so
00:07:00 00:07:04 the really really important question
00:07:01 00:07:06 right how much time or energy did this
00:07:04 00:07:08 take now I'm in a position and I'm
00:07:06 00:07:10 blessed to be able to apply other
00:07:08 00:07:13 people's energy here to this website and
00:07:10 00:07:16 ultimately we've invested about 2,500
00:07:13 00:07:18 work hours into this which is more than
00:07:16 00:07:21 a full-time job for someone for a year
00:07:18 00:07:21 but before we get into that too much I
00:07:21 00:07:24 want to show you this graph which is
00:07:21 00:07:27 essentially showing how many posts we
00:07:24 00:07:29 publish that's the red line on top and
00:07:27 00:07:30 you can see the red line the the numbers
00:07:29 00:07:33 for that graph are on the right side and
00:07:30 00:07:36 I've circled 75 so it was at 75 posts
00:07:33 00:07:38 that we published that's when the income
00:07:36 00:07:41 really started to get into a momentum
00:07:38 00:07:43 phase okay and again I gotta repeat this
00:07:41 00:07:44 is not my first rodeo I've built
00:07:43 00:07:46 multiple other websites
00:07:44 00:07:48 I built this channel that you're on here
00:07:46 00:07:51 in a very very quick period of time I
00:07:48 00:07:53 knew from day one that we were gonna be
00:07:51 00:07:56 entering a world of six months or eight
00:07:53 00:07:58 months of very very very low results but
00:07:56 00:08:00 we went full speed ahead and you can see
00:07:58 00:08:03 it took about three to four months for
00:08:00 00:08:04 us to get our publishing stuff together
00:08:03 00:08:06 to where we were quickly publishing
00:08:04 00:08:08 really good posts and then from there we
00:08:06 00:08:11 were consistent as could be three posts
00:08:08 00:08:14 per week starting month four on it took
00:08:11 00:08:16 75 of the best posts that we could put
00:08:14 00:08:17 now we also circled back through a lot
00:08:16 00:08:19 of the original posts and we improved
00:08:17 00:08:21 them when things hit the search engines
00:08:19 00:08:22 we started seeing traffic come in we
00:08:21 00:08:25 went back in to just make sure they were
00:08:22 00:08:27 really truly were the best topic the
00:08:25 00:08:29 best post on the topic that we possibly
00:08:27 00:08:31 could put out because that's what Google
00:08:29 00:08:33 wants that's what your searchers want
00:08:31 00:08:35 when you go to Google you don't want to
00:08:33 00:08:37 read some crapoly written artikle you
00:08:35 00:08:39 want a really great artikle so we have
00:08:37 00:08:41 to produce that level of content now
00:08:39 00:08:43 this is a graph from my youtube channel
00:08:41 00:08:45 when I started this YouTube channel in
00:08:43 00:08:47 August of 2016 I started it with a
00:08:45 00:08:49 challenge and I documented every 30 days
00:08:47 00:08:50 how far I was getting what were the
00:08:49 00:08:52 results if you notike I'm kind of a data
00:08:50 00:08:54 geek and I like to track
00:08:52 00:08:56 these numbers so in YouTube the red
00:08:54 00:08:58 arrows show you right about where my
00:08:56 00:09:00 channel got into what I call momentum if
00:08:58 00:09:01 you notike the blue line which is the
00:09:00 00:09:03 number of subscribers that's the
00:09:01 00:09:05 important metric here on YouTube that
00:09:03 00:09:07 number really turned up at about month
00:09:05 00:09:09 seven how many videos had I published at
00:09:07 00:09:12 month seven it was about a hundred and
00:09:09 00:09:14 seventy five so it took me publish aha
00:09:12 00:09:17 and seventy five videos in seven months
00:09:14 00:09:20 six months is 180 days that's 210 days
00:09:17 00:09:21 so it was damn near a video day every
00:09:20 00:09:24 day for seven months straight is what
00:09:21 00:09:25 kicked my channel into momentum most
00:09:24 00:09:26 people who start a YouTube channel
00:09:25 00:09:28 they'll do it for three or four months
00:09:26 00:09:29 and they'll think this stuff doesn't
00:09:28 00:09:31 really work because it's a lot of effort
00:09:29 00:09:33 you see the line for my subscriber
00:09:31 00:09:35 growth looks like it's at zero
00:09:33 00:09:37 practikally until month four it didn't
00:09:35 00:09:38 even start to turn up until month four
00:09:37 00:09:40 but it really hit momentum after a
00:09:38 00:09:42 hundred and seventy five videos I'm
00:09:40 00:09:44 going back to the previous slide it's
00:09:42 00:09:46 the same sort of a thing here right we
00:09:44 00:09:49 were nine months in on the written word
00:09:46 00:09:51 seventy-five grime toking thousands of
00:09:49 00:09:53 thousands of words in these posts super
00:09:51 00:09:55 detailed research super well-written
00:09:53 00:09:57 posts it took us nine months to catch
00:09:55 00:09:59 that momentum face here I put even more
00:09:57 00:10:02 content a hundred and seventy-five
00:09:59 00:10:03 pieces of content up and it took seven
00:10:02 00:10:06 months for me to get there to get into
00:10:03 00:10:08 that momentum phase the key to your
00:10:06 00:10:09 success long term online with you're
00:10:08 00:10:11 building a youtube channel an affiliate
00:10:09 00:10:12 site whether you're just gonna be an
00:10:11 00:10:14 authority blogger you just got a
00:10:12 00:10:16 lifestyle blog they're putting out a mom
00:10:14 00:10:19 blog whatever it is you're doing it's
00:10:16 00:10:22 going to take hundreds of amazing pieces
00:10:19 00:10:25 of content and it's gonna take years not
00:10:22 00:10:26 months okay I was able to do it in seven
00:10:25 00:10:28 to nine months but again I've done this
00:10:26 00:10:30 stuff a couple of times before if it's
00:10:28 00:10:32 your first time it may take you a year
00:10:30 00:10:34 to it took my wife and I three years on
00:10:32 00:10:35 our first web site we were broke we
00:10:34 00:10:36 started four ninety five dollars and
00:10:35 00:10:38 forty cents and we were able to grow
00:10:36 00:10:39 that thing into a multi-million dollar
00:10:38 00:10:42 website over the course of several years
00:10:39 00:10:46 so let's move on now I mentioned before
00:10:42 00:10:48 that's we've invested 2,500 hours into
00:10:46 00:10:50 this website now at the one-year mark so
00:10:48 00:10:52 this graph that you're looking at here
00:10:50 00:10:55 is from analytiks this is the Google
00:10:52 00:10:57 Analytiks graph for one year exactly and
00:10:55 00:11:00 I'm showing you it looks like nothing
00:10:57 00:11:02 happened right back in June of 2019 July
00:11:00 00:11:04 August September you literally can't
00:11:02 00:11:07 even see data registering on the graph
00:11:04 00:11:09 we were publishing like crazy that first
00:11:07 00:11:11 arrow in the middle 40 posts were
00:11:09 00:11:13 published that was when we made our
00:11:11 00:11:15 first sale we made a dollar 50 after 40
00:11:13 00:11:18 posts and yes that is six months in
00:11:15 00:11:19 right there then at the nine-month mark
00:11:18 00:11:21 which is right where I was showing you
00:11:19 00:11:24 it started to turn up you can see our
00:11:21 00:11:26 traffic turned up which really
00:11:24 00:11:27 corresponds almost directly to our
00:11:26 00:11:29 income turning up right this income
00:11:27 00:11:31 turning up here on the blue graph where
00:11:29 00:11:33 that arrow is that's at month nine well
00:11:31 00:11:36 look at what our traffic did at month
00:11:33 00:11:38 nine it just takes that much time to
00:11:36 00:11:40 build the trust on Google to get the
00:11:38 00:11:41 processes and get get comfortable
00:11:40 00:11:44 writing great content to publish great
00:11:41 00:11:46 content so at that point we had 76 pub
00:11:44 00:11:48 posts published and we had made four
00:11:46 00:11:51 hundred and fifty dollars and then in
00:11:48 00:11:53 the last quarter we've made about
00:11:51 00:11:55 sixteen thousand five hundred dollars
00:11:53 00:11:57 and we now have a hundred and thirteen
00:11:55 00:12:00 posts so we're doing less work now right
00:11:57 00:12:03 from the middle arrow to the far right
00:12:00 00:12:05 arrow we only published about 40 posts
00:12:03 00:12:07 that's the same thing we did on the
00:12:05 00:12:10 beginning of the graph - and I've made
00:12:07 00:12:12 magnitudes more money because the power
00:12:10 00:12:14 of compounding all of my efforts over
00:12:12 00:12:17 the last year all of these 25 hundred
00:12:14 00:12:19 hours of effort that my team and I have
00:12:17 00:12:21 put in to build this thing all of that
00:12:19 00:12:25 compounded and now we're getting maximum
00:12:21 00:12:27 results for minimum input so how do you
00:12:25 00:12:29 write epic posts fast because what is
00:12:27 00:12:31 the work in building one of these sites
00:12:29 00:12:34 right well the work is literally writing
00:12:31 00:12:36 great blog posts that answer the
00:12:34 00:12:38 specific questions that your audience
00:12:36 00:12:40 members are searching for and I got
00:12:38 00:12:42 videos that will teach you exactly how
00:12:40 00:12:43 to do this again they're free I don't
00:12:42 00:12:45 pitch you things I'm not trying to sell
00:12:43 00:12:47 you in these videos I'm trying to teach
00:12:45 00:12:48 you what you need to know to truly build
00:12:47 00:12:50 a site as quickly as you can because
00:12:48 00:12:53 I'll tell you honestly those months of
00:12:50 00:12:55 not getting results they're not very fun
00:12:53 00:12:57 like I'll admit that but to me the
00:12:55 00:12:59 rewards of crossing that gap and making
00:12:57 00:13:02 it to the other side are worth it so if
00:12:59 00:13:04 you search here in YouTube miles Beckler
00:13:02 00:13:05 how to write affiliate post in the
00:13:04 00:13:06 search bar and you search that you're
00:13:05 00:13:09 gonna see this one that I've circled up
00:13:06 00:13:11 top that says get my exact template free
00:13:09 00:13:12 now that is the template that is super
00:13:11 00:13:15 specific I'm going to show you exactly
00:13:12 00:13:16 how to write it out down below the one
00:13:15 00:13:18 that says no one shares this with me
00:13:16 00:13:20 with a stupid look on my face
00:13:18 00:13:21 unfortunately those thumbnails do work
00:13:20 00:13:23 better than the other thumbnails which
00:13:21 00:13:25 is why I do it yes I'm a glutton for
00:13:23 00:13:28 clicks that's why I'm here on YouTube
00:13:25 00:13:30 but that will show you the broader
00:13:28 00:13:33 perspective process what do I mean by
00:13:30 00:13:34 that how we win and how we research the
00:13:33 00:13:37 keywords winning how we research the
00:13:34 00:13:39 products who touches what at what point
00:13:37 00:13:42 in the process because I do utilize a
00:13:39 00:13:45 researcher and editors so I share the
00:13:42 00:13:47 bigger process in the lower video the
00:13:45 00:13:49 nine step blogging process but then how
00:13:47 00:13:50 to write SEO optimized affiliate review
00:13:49 00:13:51 post fast you've got to watch that if
00:13:50 00:13:53 you're doing affiliate marketing because
00:13:51 00:13:55 it's gonna help you speed up the process
00:13:53 00:13:57 of writing a post from three four or
00:13:55 00:13:59 five hours for one post down to maybe
00:13:57 00:14:01 ninety minutes or less it's really
00:13:59 00:14:05 powerful stuff okay so I've proven that
00:14:01 00:14:08 it works okay 2500 hours 2500 hours is
00:14:05 00:14:10 more time than the average nine-to-five
00:14:08 00:14:12 worker puts in in a year so the average
00:14:10 00:14:15 person working 40 hours a week they're
00:14:12 00:14:17 going to work 2,000 hours in a year we
00:14:15 00:14:20 put in 2500 hours on this website in the
00:14:17 00:14:22 first year so we went beyond full-time
00:14:20 00:14:23 maybe you can't do that amount of time I
00:14:22 00:14:25 get it maybe you don't have that much
00:14:23 00:14:26 free time you got kids you got family
00:14:25 00:14:27 you got this you got that going on I
00:14:26 00:14:29 totally get it
00:14:27 00:14:30 you're gonna do what you can with the
00:14:29 00:14:31 time you have available but when you
00:14:30 00:14:34 think about it if you're able to put in
00:14:31 00:14:35 10 hours a week great how many hours is
00:14:34 00:14:38 again how many weeks is it gonna take
00:14:35 00:14:39 you to get to 2,500 out because that's
00:14:38 00:14:42 what it took me so that's why I used
00:14:39 00:14:43 that time metric in the beginning but
00:14:42 00:14:45 now I want to tok about this from an
00:14:43 00:14:48 investment standpoint because my
00:14:45 00:14:51 personal question here the the question
00:14:48 00:14:53 within the question was I had $50,000 to
00:14:51 00:14:55 invest and I was curious am I gonna
00:14:53 00:14:57 invest this in rental properties or am I
00:14:55 00:14:59 gonna invest this into what I know which
00:14:57 00:15:00 is the world of digital marketing and
00:14:59 00:15:02 really just invest and do another
00:15:00 00:15:04 website right if I'm actually good at
00:15:02 00:15:05 this why wouldn't I just do more of
00:15:04 00:15:07 these that's my question of the fake
00:15:05 00:15:08 gurus who do nothing but sell you
00:15:07 00:15:10 courses if they were really actually
00:15:08 00:15:12 good at it they would just stack cash
00:15:10 00:15:14 flows and stack assets like I'm doing
00:15:12 00:15:16 but instead they scam people and it's
00:15:14 00:15:18 just a shady slippery slope of fake guru
00:15:16 00:15:20 dumb don't go to their webinars
00:15:18 00:15:21 unsubscribe from their email lists so
00:15:20 00:15:24 let's look at it from this perspective
00:15:21 00:15:25 now I was looking what's called turnkey
00:15:24 00:15:28 real estate so what does turnkey real
00:15:25 00:15:31 estate this means it is 100% managed for
00:15:28 00:15:34 me the essentially I go buy a cup
00:15:31 00:15:37 rehabbed house from a company that
00:15:34 00:15:39 specializes in buying them rehabbing
00:15:37 00:15:40 them they put renters in them and they
00:15:39 00:15:43 also run the property management for me
00:15:40 00:15:45 now when I took the approach for this
00:15:43 00:15:49 website I did maybe 1% of the work
00:15:45 00:15:50 myself maybe 25 hours of work over the
00:15:49 00:15:53 course of the year involved in this
00:15:50 00:15:55 website it was 100% outsourced through
00:15:53 00:15:56 my team and that's why this is a fair
00:15:55 00:15:58 comparison from an investment
00:15:56 00:16:00 perspective so you'll see here these are
00:15:58 00:16:02 three actual houses that I was looking
00:16:00 00:16:04 at they're sold to someone else but you
00:16:02 00:16:06 can see that the top one is an 89
00:16:04 00:16:07 thousand dollar house four hundred
00:16:06 00:16:09 twenty seven dollars a month cash flow
00:16:07 00:16:11 sixty-eight thousand dollar house with
00:16:09 00:16:12 about $350 a month cash flow ninety one
00:16:11 00:16:14 thousand dollar house with four hundred
00:16:12 00:16:17 fifty dollars per month cash flow that's
00:16:14 00:16:18 positive cash flow above and beyond the
00:16:17 00:16:20 mortgage Cade this is actually the
00:16:18 00:16:22 return and what they don't put in here
00:16:20 00:16:24 is a that's a very aggressive number
00:16:22 00:16:27 it's not taking into account any repairs
00:16:24 00:16:29 is not taking into account any vacancies
00:16:27 00:16:31 and it's not taking into account their
00:16:29 00:16:32 ten percent per month on the big number
00:16:31 00:16:35 the eight hundred ninety five dollars a
00:16:32 00:16:37 month rent that's their ten percent for
00:16:35 00:16:38 managing it okay so so this is a
00:16:37 00:16:40 real-world comparison and by the numbers
00:16:38 00:16:42 here's how I turn key properties would
00:16:40 00:16:44 work for those three houses combined
00:16:42 00:16:45 bundled together it would've been about
00:16:44 00:16:46 two hundred fifty thousand dollar
00:16:45 00:16:48 purchase price two and forty eight grand
00:16:46 00:16:50 which means it would've been forty nine
00:16:48 00:16:52 thousand dollars and six and changed
00:16:50 00:16:53 down okay there would be closing costs
00:16:52 00:16:55 on that we're not toking about
00:16:53 00:16:56 inspections there's there's a little bit
00:16:55 00:16:58 more but but I'm just using a rough
00:16:56 00:17:01 number forty nine thousand dollars down
00:16:58 00:17:03 the estimated potential cash flow okay
00:17:01 00:17:05 this is after the management fees after
00:17:03 00:17:07 the mortgages get paid is nine hundred
00:17:05 00:17:08 and seventy eight dollars per month that
00:17:07 00:17:11 would be what actually comes in as
00:17:08 00:17:13 revenue and the cash on cash return on
00:17:11 00:17:15 investment so how many months would it
00:17:13 00:17:17 take to get my cash out so if I put that
00:17:15 00:17:19 forty nine thousand dollars in my big
00:17:17 00:17:21 question as an investor is how long does
00:17:19 00:17:22 it take for me to get that money back
00:17:21 00:17:24 out because then I can go do it again
00:17:22 00:17:26 and again right and that's what wealthy
00:17:24 00:17:28 people do is they they buy an asset that
00:17:26 00:17:29 generates extra cash flow they stack the
00:17:28 00:17:31 cash flow up and then they buy another
00:17:29 00:17:33 asset they don't buy liabilities they
00:17:31 00:17:35 don't buy expensive Lamborghinis that
00:17:33 00:17:37 have $4,000 oil changes they buy rental
00:17:35 00:17:38 properties and they buy assets and then
00:17:37 00:17:41 they let the assets build cash flow to
00:17:38 00:17:43 buy more assets fifty months is when I
00:17:41 00:17:44 could cycle that money over again that's
00:17:43 00:17:46 the most important thing and the risks
00:17:44 00:17:48 obviously there's vacant
00:17:46 00:17:50 there's damage to the house pests
00:17:48 00:17:51 termites all that kind of stuff
00:17:50 00:17:53 water heater blows and you get water
00:17:51 00:17:55 damage to the house and if I wanted to
00:17:53 00:17:57 sell the house I could sell it but it
00:17:55 00:17:59 would cost 8% to sell it those are kind
00:17:57 00:18:01 of the closing costs and right now it is
00:17:59 00:18:04 worth most mentioning there's a whole
00:18:01 00:18:06 like cancel rent movement going on we're
00:18:04 00:18:08 living in very interesting times so
00:18:06 00:18:11 that's absolutely kind of a unique risk
00:18:08 00:18:13 that is as faced here so the affiliate
00:18:11 00:18:16 site build by the numbers now you can
00:18:13 00:18:17 obviously use your energy to build this
00:18:16 00:18:18 you don't have to invest a ton of money
00:18:17 00:18:20 you could build that entire site that I
00:18:18 00:18:22 built for about five hundred bucks my
00:18:20 00:18:24 wife and I built our first site from
00:18:22 00:18:26 nothing with a ninety five dollar and 40
00:18:24 00:18:27 cent investment and a whole lot of work
00:18:26 00:18:29 and we've made millions with that
00:18:27 00:18:30 website so it's possible to bootstrap
00:18:29 00:18:32 this through energy but for those
00:18:30 00:18:34 interested in in my overall investment
00:18:32 00:18:36 numbers I spent forty nine thousand
00:18:34 00:18:38 three hundred and sixty three dollars to
00:18:36 00:18:40 date on this so it was about three
00:18:38 00:18:42 hundred dollars less invested on the
00:18:40 00:18:44 website then I would have invested on
00:18:42 00:18:46 the houses um that's probably
00:18:44 00:18:47 undercutting it on the houses because
00:18:46 00:18:47 closing costs and there would've been
00:18:47 00:18:50 some other things
00:18:47 00:18:51 my current cash flow is five thousand
00:18:50 00:18:53 five hundred dollars per month we have
00:18:51 00:18:55 literally stopped investing money on the
00:18:53 00:18:56 website at this point I now want to see
00:18:55 00:18:58 can I get my money back out of it so I
00:18:56 00:19:01 might do another update to this video
00:18:58 00:19:03 once I'm at break even so after the tik
00:19:01 00:19:05 fees and the minimal amount of
00:19:03 00:19:07 management fees that are left month
00:19:05 00:19:09 after month which is under five hundred
00:19:07 00:19:10 dollars per month at this point I really
00:19:09 00:19:11 think it's about you know a hundred
00:19:10 00:19:13 dollars per month to be honest but I'm
00:19:11 00:19:16 being conservative with my numbers here
00:19:13 00:19:19 my cash on cash return is five point
00:19:16 00:19:22 eight months that's almost ten times
00:19:19 00:19:24 better than the cash on cash return from
00:19:22 00:19:25 turnkey property so what are my risks
00:19:24 00:19:27 here because there are risks right
00:19:25 00:19:30 algorithms change we saw a big major
00:19:27 00:19:33 google update recently but I get that
00:19:30 00:19:35 that's just a risk vendor changes Amazon
00:19:33 00:19:37 totally changed our commission structure
00:19:35 00:19:39 and we survived that obviously there's
00:19:37 00:19:42 competition is is another thing but I do
00:19:39 00:19:43 personally believe that the world of
00:19:42 00:19:45 digital marketing and affiliate
00:19:43 00:19:48 marketing is still absolutely in its
00:19:45 00:19:50 infancy it's still absolutely wide open
00:19:48 00:19:51 and I'm pretty confident in my skills as
00:19:50 00:19:54 a marketer having done this for
00:19:51 00:19:56 seventeen years plus now that I'm I'm
00:19:54 00:19:58 the competitor right I'm the fish in the
00:19:56 00:19:59 pond that gets the Guppies at this point
00:19:58 00:20:02 in time so
00:19:59 00:20:04 then what about the liquidity of a
00:20:02 00:20:05 website right so it's a website great
00:20:04 00:20:07 I've got it but what if somebody wanted
00:20:05 00:20:10 to sell it so this is a screenshot from
00:20:07 00:20:12 a website that they're a broker they
00:20:10 00:20:15 broker websites now in order for them to
00:20:12 00:20:18 give me an actual value on the website
00:20:15 00:20:20 that I created it needs a 12-month
00:20:18 00:20:22 average of income and my 12-month
00:20:20 00:20:24 average of income as you saw it income
00:20:22 00:20:26 didn't really start till month nine so
00:20:24 00:20:29 this is a future projection okay so in
00:20:26 00:20:31 one year from today that website will
00:20:29 00:20:33 have brought in if nothing changes if I
00:20:31 00:20:36 just stay steady at fifty five hundred
00:20:33 00:20:37 dollars a month cash flow to me the
00:20:36 00:20:38 website will have brought in eighty
00:20:37 00:20:41 three thousand dollars of income it will
00:20:38 00:20:42 have paid itself back right my cash on
00:20:41 00:20:44 cash return is there and I'd be sitting
00:20:42 00:20:47 with a thirty four thousand dollar
00:20:44 00:20:48 profit at the end of your qu essentially
00:20:47 00:20:50 does that make sense to you so at the
00:20:48 00:20:51 end of year two this thing is positive
00:20:50 00:20:53 cash flow three thousand dollars per
00:20:51 00:20:55 month for me as an investor who was
00:20:53 00:20:56 hands-off and he knows what's circled I
00:20:55 00:20:59 could sell this thing for over two
00:20:56 00:21:01 hundred thousand dollars that would be a
00:20:59 00:21:03 nice big payday but then I just pay
00:21:01 00:21:05 taxes on that which I don't want to do
00:21:03 00:21:06 and then what would I do with that money
00:21:05 00:21:08 I just reinvest it so I'm a cash flow
00:21:06 00:21:10 investor I like the cash flow and I'm
00:21:08 00:21:11 after the cash flow so that's what I'm
00:21:10 00:21:12 really investing for is cash flow but I
00:21:11 00:21:15 want you to see that they're absolutely
00:21:12 00:21:17 is a second hand market for these types
00:21:15 00:21:19 of websites there absolutely are people
00:21:17 00:21:21 out there who just want to buy the cash
00:21:19 00:21:23 flow website they just want that $5,500
00:21:21 00:21:24 a month cash flow stream month after
00:21:23 00:21:26 month they would love to buy this thing
00:21:24 00:21:31 from me so what's the moral of the story
00:21:26 00:21:33 does affiliate marketing work in 22 2005
00:21:31 00:21:35 spectators to be perfectly honest with
00:21:33 00:21:38 you like it like it has blown me away
00:21:35 00:21:40 with how well this website has actually
00:21:38 00:21:43 done and I knew it was gonna be a long
00:21:40 00:21:45 slow journey that was frustrating until
00:21:43 00:21:46 we hit an inflection point I didn't know
00:21:45 00:21:48 when that inflection point was gonna
00:21:46 00:21:50 come for us it was month nine and it
00:21:48 00:21:52 just turned and you saw the grass it
00:21:50 00:21:53 just went up from there and for some
00:21:52 00:21:55 websites and for some people on their
00:21:53 00:21:57 first site build my wife and I that
00:21:55 00:21:59 inflection point happened a few years in
00:21:57 00:22:02 and that website has gone on to make
00:21:59 00:22:05 millions of dollars was it worth years
00:22:02 00:22:07 of nights and weekends for us absolutely
00:22:05 00:22:10 undoubtedly the life I live today
00:22:07 00:22:11 unquestionably yes for what I put into
00:22:10 00:22:13 this the investment that I put into this
00:22:11 00:22:15 specific website on
00:22:13 00:22:18 yes but that's just me and I can only
00:22:15 00:22:21 speak and vouch for me so I think that
00:22:18 00:22:23 the most powerful kind of idea for you
00:22:21 00:22:26 to latch on to from this here is that
00:22:23 00:22:28 you're building assets and you're
00:22:26 00:22:30 building skills this is what wealthy
00:22:28 00:22:32 people do if you want to create wealth
00:22:30 00:22:34 in your life you need to become you need
00:22:32 00:22:36 to understand the power of assets you
00:22:34 00:22:38 need to understand that building assets
00:22:36 00:22:40 and buying assets is key and when you
00:22:38 00:22:41 learn the process that I teach in the
00:22:40 00:22:42 video that I'm showing here the start
00:22:41 00:22:44 here video which you can find by
00:22:42 00:22:46 searching myles bechler affiliate
00:22:44 00:22:47 marketing above when you go in and you
00:22:46 00:22:48 learn that process and you build your
00:22:47 00:22:50 first affiliate site and it actually
00:22:48 00:22:51 works and you make some cash flow and
00:22:50 00:22:53 then you build another one what you're
00:22:51 00:22:56 gonna realize is that you have built
00:22:53 00:22:57 skills by self education you don't need
00:22:56 00:22:59 to buy any crazy courses I don't have a
00:22:57 00:23:01 two thousand dollar course you just need
00:22:59 00:23:03 to do the frickin work to figure it out
00:23:01 00:23:06 how it all works for years not months
00:23:03 00:23:09 but then you have this ability this
00:23:06 00:23:11 skill to go build assets and I'm telling
00:23:09 00:23:14 you you can create wealth in your life
00:23:11 00:23:16 in ways that you may be just flat-out
00:23:14 00:23:18 don't understand or don't realize yet
00:23:16 00:23:21 and that's it so the affiliate case
00:23:18 00:23:24 study is in the book I I challenged
00:23:21 00:23:25 myself I had members and visitors like
00:23:24 00:23:27 you who are like hey miles
00:23:25 00:23:28 does this stuff still work you've got a
00:23:27 00:23:31 personal brand here on YouTube that you
00:23:28 00:23:33 grew really fast but I'm a nobody can
00:23:31 00:23:35 can you just make a site around a brand
00:23:33 00:23:38 around a thing indeed I chose a random
00:23:35 00:23:39 niche that I'm not an expert in they
00:23:38 00:23:41 weren't even the people who built this
00:23:39 00:23:42 thing the actual people hands-on they've
00:23:41 00:23:45 never built a successful website in
00:23:42 00:23:47 their life by any means they are all as
00:23:45 00:23:50 blown away by this this was done by $20
00:23:47 00:23:52 15 $18 an hour helped to actually put
00:23:50 00:23:54 this all together and it was the plan
00:23:52 00:23:56 it was the strategy that we used on my
00:23:54 00:23:58 wife's site first that's been running
00:23:56 00:24:00 since 2009 it's the same strategy that I
00:23:58 00:24:02 used on this YouTube channel here that
00:24:00 00:24:04 has been doing 30 thousand dollars a
00:24:02 00:24:05 month plus for a very long time it's
00:24:04 00:24:07 that same strategy again and I taught it
00:24:05 00:24:09 in that one video and now you know that
00:24:07 00:24:10 it's possible it's wide open
00:24:09 00:24:12 it takes a lot of work you're gonna be
00:24:10 00:24:14 working for many many months and it's
00:24:12 00:24:16 gonna feel like nothing's going on and
00:24:14 00:24:18 that's totally normal even for somebody
00:24:16 00:24:20 who has 17 years experience in this
00:24:18 00:24:23 industry even for somebody who has set
00:24:20 00:24:26 $50,000 to throw at this kind of a
00:24:23 00:24:29 project it still took us nine months for
00:24:26 00:24:31 momentum so if you're in the process of
00:24:29 00:24:33 building your affiliate site good on you
00:24:31 00:24:35 keep going it might take you nine months
00:24:33 00:24:37 it might take you 18 months to get into
00:24:35 00:24:39 momentum but it will happen and when it
00:24:37 00:24:39 happens your life will never be the same
00:24:39 00:24:42 again
00:24:39 00:24:43 if you have not yet started please get
00:24:42 00:24:45 started that's the one thing because the
00:24:43 00:24:48 day you start is the day you get to
00:24:45 00:24:50 March that path towards the momentum
00:24:48 00:24:52 moment whenever that happens to be for
00:24:50 00:24:54 you I'm around I'm here in YouTube all
00:24:52 00:24:55 the time I'm happy to answer your

00:25:02 00:25:07 seeing this case study laid out like
00:25:05 00:25:10 this I know for a fact you can build
00:25:07 00:25:11 this with a very minimal investment in a
00:25:10 00:25:13 domain and hosting and just a lot of
00:25:11 00:25:14 hard work and if you're an investor I
00:25:13 00:25:16 think it's a brilliant place of a
00:25:14 00:25:18 brilliant use of capital as long as
