MARKETING AFFILIATE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

DOMAIN COST CLUB

Why I joined?

As a GDI (Global Domains International) member, I was notified about the Domain Cost Club opportunity before it officially launched. Since I have a number of websites, and are planning to create more, it made sense to buy my domains at cost price.

How much did it cost?

I made the decision to join as a life time charter member, so my initial cost was $499.00 in September 2014.

Did I make any profit?

So far (after 2 years) I have earned $505.  But more importantly, I have bought more than 20 domains at cost price, with a total saving of more than $300. Since I have recovered my initial cost, every commission and bounty is pure profit now.

What is my marketing strategy?

I created the following to ensure ranking on the first page for my specific keywords.

  1. A video to explain Domains Cost Club (DCC) – Google loves YouTube
  2. A website to explain the benefits of Domain Cost Club Reviews
  3. On site SEO using Yoast
  4. A review of the DCC website via a recommended blog.
  5. Creating relevant tweets and posts.

I also do cross marketing – which means I would market a hosting service on my DCC review site and market DCC on a Knowledge sharing site.

Why I created the website?

As a member of various Affiliate Networks, it is a great hobby to select unique products and add them to a website.

How much did it cost?

The domain cost about £8 per year, and hosting costs around £7.  So that is a total cost of £8 per month.

I created the website myself, but if I have to put a value to it, it would cost about £500 to create.  An alternative to this would be to find a a Gig on Fiverr.com, that might cost you less than $50.

Membership of the Affiliate Networks is free and the only additional cost is a few Facebook adverts.

 

Did I make any profit?

Yes, but if I was not able to create the website myself, I would have to spend a lot more money.

Lesson learned

The current website is the 3rd rewrite.  I learned the following lessons:

  1. Choose a few main categories – for example House, Gifts for Her, Gifts for Kids
  2. Create a simple website, that is really easy to navigate.
  3. The most important part of the website is the Link Checker – that makes sure all the links still work.
  4. Choose the products with the most interesting images.
  5. The best Social Media platforms for an affiliate marketing website like OnlyClicks is Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

I also created business cards with the link and a calendar on the background using Vistaprint
