Little Milestones

I’ll keep this section up to date as I join programs or buy services or tools, etc.  I know it’s similar to resources, but it’s also a lot like a time line of little milestones.  For that reason I’ve decided to keep it separate from resources.

  • 5/13/2013 -Joined to start this blog.  Note: A couple days later I decided to host this myself on my new MochaHost hosting provider.
  • 5/13/2013 -Joined Amazon Associate Program – to be able to link to Amazon products and receive a commission if a sale is made.
  • 5/15/2013 – Signed up with MochaHost to host my blog and affiliate stores.
  • 5/15/2013 -Signed up with ShareASale affiliate network to be able to link to affiliate products that they manage.  I got approved for this 3 or 4 days later, and I still can’t remember which product I was interested in when I signed up!
  • 5/15/2013 -Signed up with CommissionJunction (CJ) affiliate network to be able to link to affiliate products that they manage – in particular the BeachBody workout products since I’m currently doing the Insanity Workout.  I got immediate approval for my CJ account.  However, you do have to apply for each advertiser individually and unfortunately I was declined without feedback by BeachBody – the owners of the Insanity workout. I’ve since been approved but I had to contact my CJ account manager directly.
  • 5/16/2013 -Signed up with NeverBlue affiliate network to be able to link to affiliate products that they manage – in particular the RushFit workout program since I’m looking at doing that once I complete the Insanity Workout.  They declined my application siting my lack of affiliate marketing experience.  I guess I’ll have to come back to this one later.
  • 5/16/2013 -Signed up with MochaHost’s affiliate program – it got approval on 5/17/2013, so one day later.
  • 5/16/2013 -Signed up with BlueHost‘s affiliate program – it got approved within minutes.
  • 5/17/2013 -Signed up for a Google AdWords account so I could use their Keyword Research Tool.
  • 5/17/2013 – Signed up for Google AdSense and added an ad block to my blog.
  • 5/17/2013 – Joined the niche site building challenge on the Smart Passive Income blog.
  • 5/17/2013 – Created my first trackback link on a related blog.
  • 5/23/2013 – Signed up with Niche Site Dual 2.0!
  • 5/23/2013 – Downloaded Market Samurai 12 day trial – this software looks awesome!
  • 5/28/2013 – Created my first Squidoo Lens!
  • 6/07/2013 – I made $0.23 today with AdSense!
  • 6/19/2013 – Found my Niche Market (main keyword) for NSD 2.0 – I’ll reveal it once the leaderboard is setup.
  • 6/24/2013 – Took my first crack at pay-per-click Marketing (PPC) – I think I’m taking a fairly unique approach and you can read more about what I’m calling Turtle PPC Marketing
  • 6/30/2013 – Added my info to the Niche Site Duel 2.0 leaderboard – if you want to look me up in there my username is lafredet.
  • 7/10/2013 – Today I joined the Wealthy Affiliate program in the hopes of getting more ideas and more motivation – you can never have to much of either.
  • 7/14/2013 – As a direct result of some motivation gained from readings user results in the Wealthy Affiliate forum above, I finally, finally, finally created a site and released it, albeit with a single post. The site is for my SEO Case Study so I can’t put a direct link here as it would skew the test.
