Week 3: Drop Shipping vs. Affiliate Marketing
January 22, 2020 | Uncategorized | No Comments
This week was where I decided how I was going to monetize the website. In tandem with advertisement in the podcast I am hoping to use an affiliate model. This means I will team up with a larger business like amazon or google. Most likely google and put advertisements on the website. The advertisements will be targeted to the general population of the website. Things like audible or botany related advertisements. The other thing in the title is drop shipping. This is a model that involves you being the middleman between a large wholesaler and a single person. Basically, you advertise that you are selling an item and when it is bought you just have to pay shipping and then it gets sent to the customer. That didn’t really fit what I wanted/ hoped the website would become. The affiliate model also looked like a lot less hassle.
No new podcasts yet but I hope to get a new episode up by the end of next week. I have a big field trip with one of my classes this week and that kind of put a damper on making an episode for this week. So keep an eye out for that one. Until then keep learning, you never know what will happen.
