So I've been reading some of the amazing wealth of information on experiencedpeople.com as well as here, fantastic sites well done guys.
I have been dreaming of being able to make money online for several years now and every time I start looking into it, I'd get frustrated with all the 'Buy this to find out' kind of info and would soon give up. But, after finding this place I see that as a general rule, most advice seems to say...
Research niches that follow your interests
Launch a content site related to those niches
Do seo to drive traffic to site (maybe adwords etc)
Apply to affiliate programs to monetise
This approch I can understand and although it is a big learning curve for me I think by taking it one step at time I should be able to get somewhere (maybe!)
Please... bare with me, I'm getting to the question
Right, so following something I read on experienced people, I went to Flippa.com and was looking through the recently sold web sites and got a little confused when I came across this site...
EST Mar 2010, MthlyRev $550, MthlyProfit $542, MthlyVisits 6427, sold for $3500
From what I understand, affiliate networks require you to have a site before you can apply for the affiliate programs, but that site, as far as I could see, has no 'real' content. It seems to be made up completely of affiliate adds apparently making money on CPA.
Ahha... the question...
How can he/she apply for the affiliate programs and get accepted if he/she either doesn't have a site or has a site but no content (just the basic shell)?
I mean... that isn't the only site like that, I've come across many others over the years.
Any input would be great,
Regards Mr P
