I’ve been waiting for this to happen and I knew it was only a matter of time. My first order has appeared in my Amazon affiliate panel for a Jumperoo, sold yesterday.
Yaaay! Thanks IPK. Thanks Craig.
It isn’t showing as a commission yet, and I’m not too sure what the difference is between an order and earnings, maybe it’s only after the item has been dispatched is it classed as earnings, as I guess whoever’s ordered it could cancel.
Or maybe it’s only calculated as earnings at the end of the month. If anybody knows the answer to that one, please let us all know.
At any rate, I’m extremely pleased.
When the order turns into earnings, it will be for 5% of £74.99 which works out to £3.75 or at todays exchange rate $5.64.
That one commission payment will pay for more than half the domain registration fee ($9.69 via NameCheap). One more commission and the site is in the black for the remainder of the 12 months. I class that as a success although I know some people may say it’s not worth it.
However, to put it into perspective, the site only went live last Sunday and 7 days later it’s more than half paid for itself. In the next 7 days I expect to get more commissions from that site, thereby paying for it to exist.
Over the next 12 months, I expect to get many more commissions from it for doing absolutely nothing at all. Within 3 months (following my linking strategy) I expect it to be in the number 1 slot on Google UK for the term Jumperoo. When it gets there I’ll see a huge jump in earnings from the site.
Now that’s what I call passive income!
I’ve been on page 2 of Google UK since late afternoon on Friday, and checking last night I was at the top of page 2, although today I’m the second one down. That’s okay, I expect it to move around a bit before getting onto page 1.
And I expect it to move up slowly, then in about a month it will disappear for a few days, and then hit number 1 or 2 position. This is a phenomenon of the linking strategy that I’ve seen before.
Certainly within 3 months I know it will get to number 1, and I then expect to make at least a sale a day.
Well. That’s what I’m hoping for anyway.
This has caused me to make the decision to put up a site a day, and I’ve put aside 2 hours each day to do so. Yes, it sounds like a JOB doesn’t it? But I’m the only benefactor, I’m not making anybody else rich, and I know that “day in – day out” if I keep it up I’ll gradually increase my income in leaps and bounds.
I sat down with my wife for 30 minutes today, showed her how to do the market research and we mapped out the next few products we’re going to target.
Crazy as it sounds, while we were looking, I could see people competing over AdSense ads for some search terms, when the actual competition for free organic traffic is almost non-existent.
And just as crazy, some search terms for my target products are getting huge amounts of search (5,000 – 10,000 searches a month and upwards) and there are no AdSense ads running for them, and there are less than 200,000 competing pages. (Anything less than 500,000 is relatively easy to dominate.)
This entire market really is wide open, and all us lucky boys and girls that know about it now are going to make a killing over the next 12 months, and certainly next Christmas will be massive as we all should have lots and lots of #1 slots with our sites.
If you work at it of course.
Does anybody reading this still need proof that IPK works?
P.S. If you haven’t already grabbed it, you can get IPK by going here and then entering promo code FHW777 to get it at $79 instead of $147.
