Hello and welcome to my latest update on the wacky world of successful affiliate marketing, dropshipping, Kindle eBook publishing and anything else worth doing.
Successful Affiliate Marketing Takes Work and Time
As usual, I’d like to start with how many posts I have published since my last update. Then, we’ll look at how the website is doing in general. Next, we’ll look at some new marketing techniques I’ve been trying out which are quite exciting, I think.
Finally, we’ll look at some new products I’m promoting as well. So, without further ado, let’s look at what I published since the last update.

As you can see, I have started a couple of new categories, well, one new, one not so new. I wrote a blog post really to start a conversation, mainly with myself, I may point out. Lol.
You can also see that I have had a couple of off days where I didn’t manage to publish a post. That was to do with my online teaching and the ridiculous amount of hours I was working. I decided that it was time to quit Cambly so I did. I will be writing a review of Cambly here when I have time.
You’ll also notice that I have started a new category about ‘Udemy’. I wasn’t going to add online courses to this blog, but I got accepted into the Udemy Affiliate Program and there are a lot of courses about making money online, so I thought, what the hell. I doubt I’ll make any money with Udemy but it’s probably worth a few bucks a month.
Search Console Results
Let’s check out my results. As you can see, I have added results from my last update and I think you’ll be impressed. Maybe not as much as I was, but still.
As you can see, the gains I am getting are still looking very healthy. Of course, the average position of my site has slowed down a bit but as clicks improve so should my site’s average position. Still, all in all, I’m very happy with the way things are going.
New Marketing Techniques
As you know, I started this blog with the idea of only using Quora as a marketing tool. I quickly realised that relying on only one marketing tool, especially one that was quite a time-consuming activity, was probably not a good decision.
Then, I decided that I should add Pinterest as my second marketing strategy. I thought doing Pinterest was quite easy to do, once I’d actually done a course on it. It doesn’t take a lot of work but it does need some organisational skills.
Anyhoo, I was doing another Udemy course the other day and learnt about another rather cool marketing strategy. It’s all to do with borrowing other people’s videos and then promoting them through Facebook. All I do is change the title and descriptions with my own links.
However, I have been thinking that my descriptions need work and that the links should come back to my site rather than the sales pages of the products that I’m promoting. Still, one of the most important ingredients of successful affiliate marketing is tweaking what you’re doing until it works.
Promoting Udemy Courses
Let’s talk about Udemy. Udemy is an online course provider. Wikipedia says, “Udemy.com is an online learning platform. It is aimed at professional adults. Unlike academic massive open online course programs which are driven by traditional collegiate coursework, Udemy uses content from online content creators to sell for profit.”
Now, I’ll be honest, I have no idea how I’m going to promote Udemy. I don’t want this website to be an online course website as such, mainly because I like writing about making money online methods more. I think what I’m going to do is carry on doing what I have been doing, but add Udemy courses into the mix as and when I find them.
If any of you have any better ideas, feel free to put them in the comments below. I am always open to new suggestions.
Wrapping Everything Up
So, what can we take away from this post? From your point of view, I have no idea, but from mine, I’d say it’s main theme is about adapting. Adapting to new marketing methods and adapting to new ways to make money. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what it’s all about.
