Step one of the Amazonian Profit Plan is a huge project. Don’t start this if you aren’t going to devote the time and effort. Researching for products is really fun, especially when you have several parameters that must be taken into consideration.
I had some questions in Day 1 of my Amazonian Profit Plan Review :
I can’t tell if the authors recommend using this system on small micro-niche sites or large authority sites. Or does it matter?
Should we be building a new website or using the ones we already have? Does it matter?
I wanted to know if I should be looking for (specified number in APP) products in the “same” niche – and if so, will I be putting all 5 products on an old site, or building a new site?
Or… should I look for “any” products and if so – where would the product reviews be posted?
I was over thinking I’m sure… but I was feeling a bit lost.
One of the recommendations made at the very start of the product – is that we should read the entire product all the way through. Which I did.
We all know that we don’t retain everything we read… 🙂
First – I read this in the product:
And then we select a category that interests us or one that will suit one of our niche product sites.
Small little comment that started to give me a clue.
Side Note: One of the very cool things that has been happening… I’ve been getting some nice emails from the product authors. I thought I was going to have to contact the authors personally… but just when I had a question, I got a FAQ email that answered the question. In fact – I’ve receive 2 of these FAQ emails so far… and I expect to keep receiving them over the next few weeks.
In an email – the authors gave an explanation that cleared it all up in my mind.
In a nutshell – “It Doesn’t Matter”. You choose how to use this method to your own best advantage. This is just a small snippet of the email:
- We have product reviews sitting on sites that have nothing to do with the domain name and they still make money.
- We have product reviews on PAGES in WordPress and they make money.
- We have product reviews on POSTS in WordPress and they make money.
- We have product reviews on HTML sites and they make money.
- We have product reviews that are on posts that are hidden away in the archives on our blogs and they make money.
Your primary focus should be writing really good reviews and getting traffic to those reviews. If you get these two things right then you will make money.If you can find a domain name with your product name in it then great – go ahead and get it by all means but don’t let your domain name choice slow you down. And don’t sit around wondering what the best method of structuring the site may be.
Having said that, we realize that some of you are relatively new to this and are looking for some concrete advice. So this is how we would choose a domain name and how we would structure our site if we were creating a new one from scratch.
See what I mean… this was so helpful.
Amazonian Profit Plan included a product research sheet to keep track of your research. I don’t know about you… but I’m not going to hand write “anything” I can type out and save on my computer.
I created an excel spreadsheet for this research. (If you want a copy – let me know).
Anyway… I’m finished with Step 1 and I’m happy with the products I’ve found.
1 Product will have it’s own new micro-niche site. (I already had a domain that was waiting for me to do this anyway)
1 Product will be going on a micro-niche site that I started about 4 or 5 months ago – and has made sales… but I want to “up” the conversion on this site.
2 Products will go on a small-ish newer site (started this year) that will eventually be an authority site.
1 Product is going on a large authority site. The site is a “general” topic site and the product has “nothing to do with the domain name or site topic”.
You can see that I’m trying several different options to see what works best (for me). I’m all about making money from home and want to make sure I’m following the steps in this system. If it works… Yippee!
I’m wiped out… so I’m going to wait a day to start on step 2.
