Spaghetti Marketing: Review Part 1

There was a product that was hot a few weeks ago and it seemed like everyone was promoting it to me, you know how these things go right? I ended up buying it! But I made a promise I would put it to good use whenever I had spare time.
It’s called Spaghetti Marketing and it is a little different than most WSOs in that it is about Zazzle not Amazon or other merchants, what was most intriguing was the 15% commission Zazzle pays if you are an affiliate. The great thing about this guide is it is not about creating products which I don’t think I am good at considering I have done that and haven’t got too many sales.
It involves getting as many links out there on free websites that allow you to write very little, the whole concept of throwing as much out there as possible and eventually something will stick is very appealing.

Thank You!

A lot of people are going to relate to this, whenever I get a commission I do a little happy dance in my head I don't go as far as to actually dance around :) Most of all I am grateful that someone has trusted me enough to go through my link and buy something I have recommended.

Are you burnt onto the hearts of your readers?
It's very easy to be just another blogger but are you burnt onto the hearts of your readers? Sounds a bit weird but I assure you it isn't. I'm saddened when a blog doesn't allow comments, or emails are 'support tickets' wheres the love? Where's the human? Am I more than just another person in the queue to the support team?

I want everyone to know that I am thankful for you just reading this, commenting, taking something from my posts to improve your business or day. Thank you to everyone because without you there would be no point in me writing!

What I've been working on

It's been a while since I posted because I've been throwing at lot of stuff onto the Internet to get my links out there for Halloween and Christmas. I have also been tweaking some of my existing properties to see if they can perform better as it is always a lot easier to make more on something that is already making money than starting from scratch.


Pinterest

I looked at the stats for my Pinterest site and noticed the traffic was not where I wanted it to be, so I checked my boards and I think I know what the problem is. I haven't done the keyword research correctly for most of my boards as there are already boards ranking on the first page. I have started adding new boards to see if I can do better, I know Pinterest is a great site and it can work I just have to keep tweaking.

Bubblews 

Not doing much on Bubblews lately as I have been working on my own websites and trying something other than revenue share sites as they can be unstable *cough* Squidoo.

I did get another payout though which is nice and at the time of writing my bank is at $30 already and I haven't even been writing there that's 90% passive. Getting a payout without even being active there is still nothing to sniff at and I'll continue to take these payouts till they stop.


Halloween

It's going to be October very soon, and I have been building up my Halloween site for quite some time. Sadly this month has been very quiet on Amazon, I hope that next month something magical happens and people start finding my site.

Comment below about what you have been doing these past few weeks.

Are Blogger blogs worthwhile?

I know a lot of people disprove of Blogger blogs, they aren't your own property and they have a weird looking domain name which lacks credibility. I do agree to a certain extent, the fact is when you are putting content on someone else's platform there is always the chance something can go wrong.

There was this person on Squidoo and I saw they had little blogger blogs with affiliate links on them, I was very intrigued so I emailed them to ask how being an affiliate on Blogger works and if it is worthwhile and they told me they were earning $100-200 per month on that one Halloween blog and for Halloween their earnings pretty much quadrupled (work that out :)

I set up a little blog of my own and a post I put up nine days ago has already earned a commission:

 Here's the post if you want to check it out :)

costume fun

The blogger is new, I am writing maybe 200-300 words per post and Halloween shopping still isn't in full swing yet. I made sure that I wrote a similar post targeting the same costume on my own blog.

I have started a Christmas blog now, using Blogger and incorporating Pinfabulous so even if my posts do not rank in Google I have Pinterest to support me aswell.People on Pinterest go crazy for the holidays!

I've never really tried to write Christmas pages because everything seems to saturated however using Pinterest aswell people search inside of Pinterest and come upon my pins which is what I like and there is probably less competition that way.

What do you think, is it worth it?

Did I reach my content goal?

This monkey is laughing at my progress
The plan was to write one blog post per day in August (not on this blog) for my Halloween blog. Halloween is fast approaching and I didn't want to miss out as I know how well seasonal webpages can perform.

I didn't reach my goal however I did get ten new posts up which is better than nothing and to be fair my Internet was out for two weeks which wasn't convenient.

I have already written three new posts this month though as my Internet is back, one for a Christmas blog and two for my Halloween blog.

It's about time I got to work on Christmas webpages now because that can be just as lucrative if not more than Halloween.

What are you working on now? Comment in the comment box below.
