I Bought A Turnkey Amazon Affiliate Website For $399 On Ebay
In one of my recent videos, we dug deep into the world of automated websites.
You know, those websites you can find on eBay and other places promising that you’re going to get income as soon as you buy them.
But we did a little digging and found out that’s not really the case at all.
Upon going through the comments on this video, I found someone, Roger, who said, how about the Amazon Web site? I think you can buy that and turn it around.
Well, Roger, challenge accepted.
And the Web site I’m choosing to buy is beautysuppliesonline.net
We can see that it does have a little bit of search engine rankings and it does have some blog posts and everything like that. So I think we can really turn this one around.
So let me go ahead and make the purchase now for three hundred and ninety nine dollars and buy this Web site. And then we’re going to talk about why I bought this Web site, why I think it’s valuable, and how you can start buying websites cheap and turning them around to profit big money.
As you can see here, the domain has not yet transferred to my registrar account, so we’re waiting on that so that we can do some updates and make the site the way that we want it. If you want to see the video update where I create the site and edit it and everything like that, make sure you subscribe, click the bell and smash the like button, because we are going to have a follow up where I go through and revamp the site and show you how much money it actually makes.
Now, if we take a look at the Web site, beauty supply online dot net, we can actually see that it’s not that great content. A lot of the images are broken. There’s some code that’s not working. It’s not that good. It’s most likely some auto generated content or some kind of junky content that they’re curating from other places. And according to GoDaddy, the domain is only worth about five hundred and sixty four dollars. And again, that’s a rule of thumb. If I wanted to sell this, I probably couldn’t get five hundred and sixty four dollars for it, obviously, since I was only willing to pay three ninety nine and even that was a pretty inflated price. And at this point you might be saying, well Marcus, why the hell did you buy it if it’s got crappy content in the domains, not that valuable.
Well, let me show you first off, if we do a report in AHREFS, we can see that it actually does have some back links. Some are referring domains and it does have some keywords. So if we go into the organic keywords, we can kind of take a look at what we’re ranking for and what this site is all about. Now, I can see that we rank for some kind of X Tavia beauty salon, hair dryer. We got hairstyles half shaved, some kind of brushes, hair dryers and different things like that, which is good because these are people looking to buy various beauty products. And as such, we can make some money off this stuff. And of course, the easy way to make money would be just to slap a bunch of Amazon affiliate links.
But as we know, Amazon doesn’t pay very much. So I’m going to show you a better way. But first and most importantly, since the site’s kind of screwed up and not working properly, let’s go into the movements tab on the keyword tool. What this is going to show us is the keyword rankings that this website once had and now lost. I’m going to go ahead and export this to an Excel file, and when looking at the Excel file, we can actually see some of the rankings this one had and the volume of those keywords that it ranked for. Now, it doesn’t matter to me if it ranks number 50 or number one, it just matters that it starts to rank because I know I can do a better job and put really good things in front of these people that make me lots of money.
So first of all, we can see that we rank for all these different keywords TV, makeup artist, physicians, formula, something, their beauty supply, contacts, beauty supply and on and on we go. We can also see that some of these keywords actually get a lot of searches. This one gets three hundred one hundred here. Some of these even get to fifty three hundred and four hundred eight hundred for this hairspray. Thirteen hundred for online beauty supply, five hundred for some other type of blow dryer and even a keyword with 2000 searches a month.
So we could see there’s a lot of searches and there’s a lot of stuff that this site is starting to show up for. And in order to make money with this traffic, we’re going to take like the actual products and hair blow dryers and things like that. And we’re going to use Amazon as our affiliate source, but we’re also going to do something a little sneaky and a little bit better to try to make even more money off this traffic, and that is to go over to offer vault and search for affiliate offers that are related to makeup.
And since I’ve been doing affiliate marketing for 21 years, I know that there’s lots of makeup giveaways and different things that we can offer to people that are going to pay us a lot of money, because if I just sell a blow dryer on Amazon, I’m probably going to get like two bucks. And not everyone’s going to buy, which means I’m not going to make much money at all, which is probably why this guy is selling the website anyway, because he doesn’t know how to make money with it. And we could see here there’s an eyebrow master make up pencils that pays twenty six dollars a sale test and keep makeup kit.
We got give away make up things that pay two dollars and 40 cents when someone puts their email in a box.
Yep. They don’t even have to buy anything. We can also see lots of different offers about hair that pay anywhere from ninety dollars to seventy dollars. And on and on we go. So there’s lots of potential to make a lot of money with this type of traffic if you know what you’re doing. And just to be on the safe side, I went ahead and searched for some of these keywords in Google like X, Tovah, Allura, Supreme. Twenty two hundred watt and we could see that, yes, the site actually does rank and it leads to their page that they can order this thing and it’s not even that good a page. And it says something about dog food. It’s kind of a mess. But with that type of ranking I can turn this around really quickly. So all I really need to do once I get this site in my possession is take some of these keywords that have lots of traffic and start to create content around them and put that page on the exact Eurail that once ranked in Google. This is very important because if you have something that once ranked in Google, it’s going to get picked up a lot faster. And if you do a good job of that article and matching the keyword, you should start to rank really, really fast because, hey, Google already knows it exists.
And again, you want to make sure that when you create your new piece of content, you use the exact same link that was showing up in Google at one point. This is going to help you get ranked really fast. Don’t add any extra dashes, any extra characters. Use the exact link that once ranked and you’ll get picked up really fast. So now I got my work cut out for. What I’m going to do is I’m going to go over to a writer and hire writers dot com, and I’m going to start ordering content about these different keywords. Then when I get this site in my possession, I’m going to put that content up with my affiliate links, start to see where the rankings land, check how much money I’m making, rinse and repeat. Now, is this website worth three hundred and ninety nine dollars? That’s to be determined.
