    What do you mean Will? SEO is no different to PPC really, you send traffic to the affiliate landing pages.

    Affiliate marketing seems to be good at making quick money. I like publishing because it makes long term revenue.

    But still, your success makes me even more desirous of investing time in PPC and affiliate marketing.
    You don't have to do PPC in order to make money with affiliate marketing. Building content sites, and then optimizing for long tail, or "buyers" keywords, can prove to be just as profitable. And of course, you're minimizing your costs to only what you need to spend on domains and hosting...and if you're lazy outsourcing for content.

    If you put the time into building quality content targeting the right keywords, then affiliate marketing could build long term revenue as well. You build a site once, and get paid over and over again for as long as there's a market for the product.

    It doesn't have to be so hard and expensive if you go about it the right way.

    You don't have to have any money to get started in affiliate marketing. If you're broke now, try bum marketing (writing articles and submitting them to directories). PPC is just a quick way to get traffic, and if you don't know what you're doing, you'll be in a worse off position than you were when you started. PPC is not just 1,2,3, and boom, you've got a hit. It takes time and testing to learn the ins and outs of profitable campaigns.

    Writing articles and submitting them to article directories to get those affiliate sales is cost free. The only thing you have to be willing to invest is your time.

    And, I noticed that you said you will just stick to content sites. I'm pretty sure there's some way to monetize that content via affiliate marketing if you just take the time to look for it. You've already got the resources, just find a way to use them again to bring in more cash!

    But ofcourse it's good if it all works!
    And again....you DON'T have to invest a dime to succeed in affiliate marketing. The rich guys do it because it works for them. They spend their money like crazy because they know how to make that return. If you don't have the money to spend on ads or whatever, utilize your skills to benefit you. Some of the biggest affiliate marketers started off without a dime in their pocket. So, remember that...get it out of your head that you HAVE to put in some money before you can get anything out of it.


    And to address the title question of the thread...the best way to get some fast cash out of affiliate marketing is to promote instant commission programs via bum marketing. You get paid every time you make a sale!

    It's just much harder to build links to affiliate landing pages.

    I'm spoiled. My content pages generate their own natural links.

    Every time I have tried affiliate marketing on The Tech FAQ, the results have been dismal.

    But... we're going to start another major push into affiliate marketing around 1 September.

    I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.

    I just reviewed your site, and I could see why it is hard to make money with affiliate marketing. Your site isn't targeting any one particular niche. People may visit the site looking for one thing, and because there is such a wealth of information, they may leave without looking further.

    Content sites are best for generating revenue via affiliate marketing (such as Clickbank or CPA) when they are focused to a particular niche.

    Also, too many ads (I notice you have a lot of them) can be a bad thing, especially when people are looking for something.

    Take for instance, Clickbank review sites. They work for a lot of people because of their format. They are filled with content about a particular niche, and then people are given suggested products based around that information. They came to the site looking for "jelly beans" and they found "jelly beans."

    If your site has been in that same structure/format since it's inception, then people might come for "chocolate" and they find "strawberry" so they leave.

    Just my two cents...but that's the way I see it.

    So do mine. Need to work smarter not harder. Which is why I host the landing page on a large content site. Sure you lose traffic because you are funneling the traffic to your landing page, but with free SEO traffic, you take what you can get, and best of all it's targeted.
