Hello everyone. About two months ago I heard of affiliate marketing for the first time. Late to the party, I know. As a guy who’s always had an interest for not only passive income but also a dream of starting his own business one day i really get sold on the idea of starting my own website.
I talked to my girlfriend, told her what I had learned and she thought it seemed like something I would be good at, she said.
I started thinking about keywords and niches during run and tried to pop ideas for what keywords to research.
I asked my brother if he wanted to join in, dividing 50/50 and run this project together with me. I heard a lot of affiliates get either burned out or unmotivated – sometimes before even turning to profits. Having a partner seemed like a good way to avoid either of those things from happening.
So what we did was purchasing a WP-theme, domain name and all other basics. I reached out to and old friend of mine who happens to be a very successfull arts director and would like to know whether he would design out logo. We paid 100$ “Buddy-price”.
So once we started working with the site I promptly realized how much time it ingests when you start from scratch with little knowledge.
Since I run a lot, spending the desired time has been hard. I’ve been limited to 3-4 hours per day. So we started outsourcing. We’re outsourcing content, some small web-development things that needs fixing and then even more content.
The question that made me recently was “Shit, what if reddit believes pumping all this cash into the project before even watching a dime is really stupid? “
So yeah, thats kinda what I’m wondering. IF you had resources available when you started out, in retrospect, would you do it?
