While I do write 99% of the material for my beginning affiliate marketing blog, I produce far more content that someone else writes. The freelance article writer who I normally use works with IWriter. You don’t have to work with just one person there but it does help to build a strong relationship.
To show you the type of quality that is possible I am putting forth the following article that my writer wrote for me.
It is important to note that some minor grammatical adjustments were required, but overall the content is the same as when he sent it to me.

Top 5 Affiliate Marketing Examples
There are tons of affiliate marketing examples out there. In the case studies shown below, you will learn about people who are earning a passive income through affiliate marketing and advertising. These content rich websites come in different forms – ranging from news and review formats to blog formats that lead to online stores. Others are in the conventional website style. However, one thing is common to all of them – they work.
Read on to learn more:
Chris Guthrie has been making millions of affiliate sales every year off Amazon. One of his niche concentrations is on photography tips. This is a niche that is particularly attractive, mostly because of the wealth of linkable content that you can create. There are also tons of products you can market as an affiliate – including cameras, lenses, and so on.
2. Nerdy Nomad
Nerdy Nomad, another example of a successful affiliate marketing program, provides a collection of niche websites. From it, you can learn about the entire business model that has been executed so profitably and effectively.
The girl behind the website, Kirsty, is an avid globetrotter and traveler. She is insanely smart because she could build a million-dollar business from providing high quality content across the various travel websites she runs.
If you love traveling and you have been around, then you might want to consider going into the travel blogging niche. By generating content – both visual and written – you will be able to attract enough traffic that you can pitch your affiliate marketing to and generate a nice income.
Focusing your affiliate marketing on treadmills is another sure win. If you work on the sports equipment niche, you are going to make money. This is primarily because treadmills tend to be expensive – starting from the $800 mark and going up and beyond the $2000 point. Therefore, the commissions you are going to be earning will be more than $100 each time you succeed in making a sale from your affiliate marketing efforts.
Think Traffic came up with the Million Dollar Blog Project. Essentially, it challenges people to create a website/blog from scratch and start making money from it. The challenge hosts can choose to create a website that promotes the sharing of information about how to become an expert at just about anything – from personal productivity down to running a marathon.
Before confirming this choice, they wanted to come up with a website on blog and website design for people who are not well versed at web design and development. However, since the topic caused some uproar, they ditched it.
Anyway, the Expert Enough idea has gone viral. From it, the founders could earn a lucrative income selling affiliate products.
Nettle Tea HQ
Nettle Tea HQ was built by Nick McIntosh to see whether it was possible to earn a passive income from affiliate sales and Google AdSense. The idea was simple – to get his website to rank highly for the nettle tea keyword. He posted a couple of decently written articles and people started clicking on the links inside them.
In no time, Nettle Tea HQ started making a killing – which goes to show the power of search engine optimization in the success of any affiliate marketing program/campaign.
There are many other examples of interesting and amazingly successful affiliate marketing programs out there. Each of them is the same in one regard – they are unique and self-starters in their chosen niche. To succeed similarly, therefore, it is imperative that your idea be as unique as possible. By ensuring this, you will have a higher chance of having a targeted market that is actively interested in the services/products you are marketing.
IWriter Written: Concluding Thoughts
Perhaps I would have chosen a different affiliate success story, but the point remains solidly the same.
If you don’t have enough time to write everything yourself then get someone on board with you that does. Those someone’s are available at IWriter and I highly recommend them.
With this article, I wrote less than 200 words and yet will be publishing one that is over 800 words.
