I don't usually try to write sensational headlines. However, I don't know how else to put it.
Jake put in about 1 hour of work and has now earned $379.51 directly from that work…in the past 30 days.
I want to show you exactly what he did and how you can do the same with your own websites. This is a strategy that isn't particularly hard to implement; however, in the past it has been extremely time consuming.
However, Jake has been using a brand new software tool (which I created) that makes this job that normally can take hours to only a few minutes.
The software tool is Table Labs, which you can learn about here.
Let's jump into it!
The Earnings Proof
Before I go any further, I want to share the “money shot”. Jake has provided this screenshot from JUST ONE of his Amazon affiliate tracking Ids.
This tracking ID was set up specifically to track this strategy, so we know with 100% certainty that all the additional earnings he is seeing come from this new tactic.
Here's the screenshot:
Jake's Site Before the Changes
We have all probably heard the term, “money articles”. These are the articles that target buying keywords like “best survival knife” or “best can opener” that are obviously related to products that people want to buy.
These articles are easy to monetize and typically is where most of our Amazon affiliate sites are going to make money.
However, if you are smart, you also tend to write articles on more informational topics like, “how to shave” or “how to stop biting fingernails”. Informational articles can sometimes be easier to rank for and can often have lots of traffic associated with them.
Unfortunately, many times these informational articles are difficult to monetize.
Jake happens to own a site in the home services industry. Without being too specific, it covers common problems that homeowners have that they can often handle themselves, but in many cases they'll hire a professional to come in and do the work.
It just so happens that the niche his site is focused on doesn't have a ton of products he can be writing about. As a result, most of his site is made up of informational articles; while only a few are the “money articles”.
As a result, he's mostly just focused on pay per click ads to monetize his site (like Google adsense or Adthrive). In terms of traffic, this strategy has worked out pretty well for him!
See his traffic stats below:
See his earnings from AdThrive Here:
Imagine for example, if the site was about getting stains out of clothes – 95% of the articles on the site are about topics like “how to get grease out of a shirt” and “does cold water clean better than hot water.”
Jake's site was in a similar vein, but he never knew how to monetize these sites outside of pay per click ads…that is until recently.
How Jake Used My New Table Creation Tool
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I've been working on developing a software tool that helps you create beautiful looking product comparison charts in minutes. These charts automatically pull in images, descriptions, prices, and other details from Amazon (hooray for being Amazon compliant!). And of course, it automatically inserts your Amazon Associates ID so you can make money.
I gave Jake early access to this tool, and he decided to test it out on his informational “home services” site. He figured, “well, if I can make money on a few of my articles with product comparison tables, won't I make more money if I add them to more articles?”
Up until this point, he never wanted to go through the pain staking process of creating product comparison tables for each of these articles. As you probably know, creating one table from scratch can easily take an hour or more. When you have dozens or hundreds of articles, that becomes so overwhelming that it never gets done.
Once Jake started using my new software tool, he realized that he could create a chart in just a few minutes, without any coding required.
Example Comparison Chart
I thought you might be interested to see an actual table created using my software. So, below I've created a table for you to browse. I'm sticking with the stain removal theme from Jake's example.
So, the table below looks similar to the one's Jake used on his site.
You may be wondering how sending more traffic to Amazon affected the pay-per-click ads that Jake was running. Sure, it's nice that his Amazon Associates earnings increased by $379, but did his other ad revenue decrease?
