High Five

A brief recap of my journey so far.

After a mere five weeks I have learned how and where to buy a domain and I have bought my own hosting account to host my domains.

I have learned how to build a blog using WordPress and install it into my domain name.

I have personalised the blog by changing the theme and installing a custom made header and a footer.

I have opened a Clickbank Account so that I can promote and sell other peoples products and earn affiliate commissions.

I have put some Clickbank Affiliate products into the links on the blog sidebars, all relevant to making money online.

I have also set up an Adsense Account which has enabled me to integrate the adsense code into the code of the blog and have adverts automatically appear on any posts that I write.  They are keyword specific and  will therefore compliment the post content.

The most important step so far was registering for an account with AWeber to set up an auto responder to enable me to start building a subscriber list.

I have signed up as an affiliate with

  • D9 Hosting – promoting their hosting facilities
  • Planet Divinity – promoting their customised banners, headers and footers etc
  • AWeber – promoting their auto responder

I have learned about placing banners into the blog posts and into the sidebars.  I have also gotten into the habit of writing posts for the blog.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the first five weeks of the course and can’t wait for the next steps along the way.

I have also been making short videos about my progress on the course, these are available to view on request.

I have put them together because I can see a real opportunity to do some affiliate marketing with them in the latter part of the year.

Anyway for now that brings me up to date – Happy Marketing – SK
