Start an agency: To grow beyond 6 figures, you will need to expand your client base and hire people to serve them. This obviously involves higher responsibility and may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

“While I now write full-time, freelancing was once a side hustle I did only in my spare time. It all started with my blog, which helped me land paid writing gigs on a variety of topics from parenting to budgeting. My first paid gig helped me earn $50, and the next one paid $65. This was amazing to me at the time since I was earning considerably less per hour at my full-time job. Years later, I am now earning well over six figures (over $150,000 in writing alone in 2015) doing something I love. It all started with a side hustle – a $50 then $100 jolt that helped me realize I could do so much more.”
Start by taking other courses you’re interested in: Not only is this important competitor and opportunity analysis, but it also gives you an idea of how a course could or should look and feel. What’s the pacing like? Is it via email, video, in-person chats? Once you understand how you want your course to look, it’s time to decide what it should include. Those same courses are a great starting place. How can you make your course better or more interesting? Do you have experience others don’t?
The good thing about affiliate marketing is that this industry is here to stay and will always be a reliable source of revenue for affiliates and bloggers looking to turn their side hustle into a full time business.
the smallest custom audiences i use are around 1000 names. it may be possible to specify smaller audiences but in reality you end up with delivery issues (low impressions / high CPCs associated with needing to win the auction for such a tiny audience). I’ve found that audiences in the range of 1-100k work the best. (neither too big nor too small).

If you are a startup or small business advertiser and don’t work with an ad agency, then it can be hard to figure out which ads will work the best — after all, advertising isn’t your primary business.
Choose products or services that are relevant to your niche. If your site is about children’s books and you promote car insurance, at best you’ll look like you don’t know what you’re doing and at worst, you’ll be branded a “spammer.” Once you develop a bad reputation as a spammer or an “out to make a quick buck” type of affiliate marketer, it’s incredibly difficult to go back. Start out with high standards and you’ll be fine. Simply put, promoting bad stuff makes you look bad and will hurt you in the long run.
As I mentioned above, there is no limit to the amount of money you can earn from affiliate programs. It all depends on which program you’re promoting and how many conversion you are making.
