Bookshop was founded to support independent bookstores and save them from going under because of a certain online retailer.
And it’s worth noting that Amazon is continuously changing the rules and lowering commissions, too. Enough said.
Bookshop distributes earnings through a pooled fund to give profits to digital storefronts of local stores.
Bookshop’s affiliate program is open to everyone and pays a higher royalty on affiliate book sales than Amazon does – 10% on any books...
Imagine you build a website, drive traffic, monetize the heck out of it, list build, drive more traffic, and then sell the whole thing off.
How much can you get?
That’s going to depend on a lot of factors, including the niche you’ve chosen, how big and responsive your email list is, and how much money your website earns. Usually, ordinary money-making websites are valued at 2x or 3x annual income. But if you’ve built a large responsive list to go with the site, you can...
Can you imagine making six figures from writing just ONE report?
Believe it or not, that’s essentially how many marketers do earn six figures or even seven figures.
No doubt, you’ve seen marketers launch an excellent $10 product that sells like crazy.
And then they do it again. And again. And again.
They come up with a topic, write a report, or create a product, do everything necessary to launch it, and then start all over again.
But let’s say you write...
If I told you his name, you would probably recognize it. You might even wonder whatever happened to him.
For a while, he was the hottest thing in Hollywood. Every movie he did turned to gold. He was fawned over by Hollywood producers, and everyone either wanted to be him, to sleep with him, or cast him as the star in their next movie.
But all of this fame went straight to his head. He drank too much and did too many drugs.
And worst of all, he thought he was the greatest thing on the planet....
My Top Secret* Niche List
*Granted, it’s no longer a secret now that I’ve shared it with you. Oh well, enjoy it!
Over the years I’ve been compiling this list of niches one by one. Some of them I added because they’re obviously hugely profitable. Others intrigued me. A few of them look pathetically small, and yet they are being used by people who earn 7 figures a year in these exact niches.
And all of them are worth looking into when choosing your next project.
I’m not sure if I recommend this or not, but it is interesting and certainly something to consider.
There’s a marketer who offers to build you an email list of 1,000 brand new subscribers for $1,000.
He takes on 3 or 4 clients at a time, charging each of them $1,000. Each client supplies a quality lead magnet, and all of the lead magnets are displayed on one squeeze page.
So let’s say the lead magnets are a video on driving traffic, a PDF on list building, a course about...
There’s a marketer I know who launches a new funnel with a new product every three months or so. He pays 100% commission on the front end as well as 100% commission on all of the upsells, too.
AND he runs an affiliate contest that pays thousands of dollars.
This brings in a LOT of affiliates who promote the new product hard, and it builds a brand new list of buyers.
How does he make his money?
First, he promotes the funnel to his list. I suspect the commission he earns from this is...

Fortunes are made when people think out of the box and ask questions no one else is asking. What happens when you pair X with Y to make Z? Sometimes nothing happens, and other times fortunes are made. Pairing two ideas together to create a third is ‘idea sex.’ I don’t know who coined the term, but I’ve heard James Altucher use it often.
The founder of Netflix had to pay Blockbuster $50 for a long-overdue movie. Then he went to the gym, got on the treadmill, and started...

These folks all experienced failure before reaching their ultimate success.
