    Here's the site, www.zencollegelife.com, I want to start doing some affiliate marketing, but not sure where to start or what to do. I make an insignificant amount with ad revenue, more than enough to pay for sites, but nothing to brag about.

    It seems affiliate marketing can bring a little more revenue, so I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to give a few beginning tips on how to go about doing this?

    I have an amazon affiliate acount, but I've never done anything with it...

    thanks in advance guys!

    find shit that people at college would buy and write random reviews of it on your blog, then find said items for sale somewhere (like amazon) sign up for an affiliate account through them and sell the items on your site...

    1. sign up for some of the CPA networks (neverblue, marketleverage, azoogle, copeac...there are plenty).
    2. find educational and student related offers
    3. blog about those offers/services in a non-sales pitch way but using your affiliate links.
    4. profit.
    5. rinse. repeat.
    6. buy tons of monitors and post about it.
    7. profit more?
    You should be able to get some conversions with your natural traffic but once you find some offers that do well then you can scale it up and use PPC to send traffic to that post and make even more.

    You should be able to find tons of offers that will work well with college students in one way or another.

    by the way, your site seems to be displaying wrong in IE. I'm only seeing the title of today's post.

    yeah i can't figure it out. I've had a coder look at it, but i don't think he spent much time trying to figure it out. I don't know coding myself.
