A Little Bit About this Episode:
Last week we started dipping our toes into the more strategical side of creating and monetizing an affiliate site, and kicked things off with a full explanation on how to run basic keyword research using the Google keyword planner tool.
It was an episode we were super jacked to release because it signified that we're really starting to get into the nitty gritty of what it takes to not only run a niche site, but monetize it.
What's even better is we got a ton of amazing emails from people telling us how thankful they were for the episode, because up until then they hadn't even heard of keyword research! *picks jaw up off the floor*
I mean, after all, the man invented one of the greatest keyword research tools out there (which we have used for nearly every site we own, including our case study websites!) , so we figured who else would be better to talk about keyword research than him!
And laaawwwwwd did he deliver! Just click play to steal his strategies or scroll up to download your free PDF transcript, and get to readin' because this episode is too good to miss out on!
