Hey, and WELCOME to the 1st of December 2014 update!
As you can tell, there have been some BIG changes going on behind the scenes of AidanBooth.com… I’m EXTREMELY excited finally roll out my “new look”…
Watch the quick ‘tour video’ below for an overview of what’s changed, and then continue on to today’s content (which I think you’re gonna LOVE):
What do you think of the “new look”?
I’d LOVE to hear your feedback, so please leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your thoughts!!
BTW – Are you interested in getting an in-depth case study about how I made the changeover from the old design to the new one? For example, would you like to know how I created this new design, the costs, the changeover process etc… Let me know in the comment box at the bottom of this post, and I’ll start working on something for you!
On to today’s content…
Whatever you’re doing online, you’ll most likely start with finding a niche or a product to promote or sell.
But for many people, this is a big hurdle…
It’s never as easy as experienced marketers make is sound, which is why I’ve asked a good friend to join us today and share some of his wisdom.
My guest is Andrew Hansen, and he agreed to let me interview him to find out about his hyper-effective system for uncovering affiliate marketing niches, and how he then validates commercial intent.
The interview is about 30-40 minutes long, and in it you’ll SEE exactly what Andrew does… If you are interested in affiliate marketing, or niche marketing in general, then I think you’re going to find it incredibly valuable.
Andrew is a full time internet marketer who got started back in 2005. He has a wealth of knowledge about online marketing, and specifically in the areas of Affiliate Marketing and SEO.
Like me, he’s from “down under” (he grew up in Queensland, Australia), and he now lives in London.
Andrew is one of the guys we go to when we need to know something about SEO. In fact, just last week I was asking Andrew for some advice about one particular aspect of high PR domain names…
Andrew is a guy who talks the talk, but more importantly, he WALKS THE WALK. He does this stuff for a living. Every day he’s in the trenches building his business, just like you and I.
In the video below Andrew reveals some golden nuggets, so I STRONGLY recommend you watch it, and make sure you also download the transcript too (download links are below the video):

One of the things that I REALLY loved from this interview was Andrew’s “monthly earning potential” formula… it’s explained in detail in the video so watch that for more information, but in a nutshell it works as follows:
Monthly Earning Potential = Monthly Search Volume x 35% (percentage of search traffic that #1 ranked website will get) x 35% (CTR from your website to the product offer page) x 5% (conversion rate on offer page) x Commission (amount you make per sale).
Let me break this down in a simpler way using a real example.
Let’s assume that the monthly search volume for your keyword set is 5,000.
We’ll also assume that the commission you’ll earn on the product you’re promoting is $41.
Using these two numbers, we have the following formula:
Monthly Earning Potential = 5,000 x 35% x 35% x 5% x $41 = $1,255
TIP: If you hate percentages like me, then you can just replace the percentages above with their ‘decimal’ values:
Monthly Earning Potential = 5,000 x 0.35 x 0.35 x 0.05 x $41 = $1,255
Pretty cool huh!
We can quickly get a ballpark figure for our earning potential just by combining a few basic numbers 🙂
As Andrew made crystal clear at the end of the interview, niche marketing, affiliate marketing and SEO are very much alive and well…
Steve Clayton (my business partner) and I have also been working away behind the scenes with a few experiments on some of our old affiliate sites (as well as building some brand new ones), and what we’ve seen so far has been very very encouraging. More on that after we’ve done more testing…
There’s a sneaky system I use to identify golden Amazon opportunities…
It works for Kindle, and also for White Label products.
I had hoped to make a video about this little trick and include it in this blog post today, but with my site changeover and everything else that’s been going on, I just ran out of time…
So here’s what I’ve decided to do…
In the next few weeks I’ll create a video for you detailing EXACTLY how I identify my best Amazon products. I’ll show you exactly what I do…
Once the video is ready, I’ll send you an email to notify you about it and you can check it out for yourself.

I’ll send you an email as soon as it’s ready 🙂
That’s all for today!
Remember to leave a comment to let me know what you think of this month’s content, and I’d LOVE to know what you think about my new website design!!
I LOVE the new look Aidan, congratulations, and yes, I’m very keen to find out how you did it (I’ve downloaded the interview, so will listen to it later when I’m driving home!)
🙂 Glad you like it Perry!
I’ve signed up for the blueprints and will read them later. I second Janet, would be great to see how you made this transition.
Hey Peter, I think you’ll enjoy the blueprints 🙂 If there’s anything you’re not sure of, just post a question here…
Hi Aidan, I know of Andrew from a webinar you did a while ago. This couldn’t have come at a better time for me, as I’m literally just about to embark on a new authority site. Thanks to you both for this!
Great!! Good luck with your new site!
Glad you liked the interview Darren, and good luck with that new authority site.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the new design and look, and it would be great to see the process you used, including the new look of your list.
I took one of Andrew’s courses last year (Forever Affiliate) and was very impressed. Using his teachings and yours is likely the reason why my sites I built two (almost three) years ago still rank at the top today!
Awesome Chris!! Looking forward to catching up on Friday in Orlando 🙂
That’s really cool Chris – thanks for sharing 🙂
Yep, I’ve benefited from past great material from you too!
Also a quick question for U to solve a nagging mystery for me:
Do you have a younger brother named Adam?
Besides the same spelling of your last names, i met him & you two seem to bear a strong resemblance to each other!
Thanks! …. and to you too Aiden, great update, would LOVE to know about what you did, and How!
Hi Will, I’m not sure about Andrews brother, but I’m sure he’ll chime in once he sees this 🙂
Haha, I have no younger brothers. Nor am I the member of a once popular teen boy band 🙂
I gave you my Amazon listing instead of website – I’m kind of proud of it!
Your new website is totally great. Good layout, easy to navigate, interesting information. You are making great strides in a few areas…congrats for all your hard work and your success.
I am requesting your “golden Amazon opportunities”. Might be some help to me. Thanks, Lise
Hi Lise, great to hear you’re moving forward with Amazon! Woohoo!!! Thanks for your feedback, I’ll get the “golden opportunity” hack to you ASAP!!!
Love the new design and subscription at the bottom of the pages, great idea. Looking forward to more of the same great content. A small comment if I may. On the homepage only 1 testimonial has a picture so unless you scroll then there is a lot of whitespace above your subscription box. All pictures or removing the one would help in my humble opinion.
Love the sidebar bio and as always the push to social. Thanks!
Hey Marc, thanks for the feedback, really helpful!
I was in such a hurry to get this live, that the testimonials I had didn’t have a chance to get me their photos, they are coming soon though!
Clean design, easy to navigate, good use of color… what’s not to like? Congratulations mate, this is an example of how a blog should be done.
Absolutely love the new fresh look Aidan , and what a great post as an
Andrew Hansen – yes a fan- fantastic information clear and succinct – well done.
Yes I certainly want to know how you did it – the upgrade of your site -I have a coupla shockers I would like to transform !! lol . .
Hi Jade, glad you like it! There seems to be a fair bit of interest about the upgrade process, so I’ve added it to me “to-do” list 🙂
I think the new site looks great Aidan and as always I am grateful for the fantastic content you put out on your site. For those of your reading this who do not know Aidan, he is the real deal, supportive and genuinely interested in how those who follow his teachings are going with their business. I speak from first hand experience. Thank you Aidan.
Thanks Brent! I appreciate your comment 🙂
Yes the design is beautifully done Aidan.
Let me tell you what else I appreciated. You left the video controls in your videos and did not start them on autoplay. Whenever I open a page that does not follow that policy I won’t stay around long enough to watch 10 seconds of the video.
It shows you have respect for your viewer. As a result I watched the video not once but twice.
It’s enough to make me subscribe to your blog and most likely purchase from you in the future.
Hey Skip, great! Good to hear your thoughts about the video controls!
Aidan, can you tell me if Authority pro 3 theme is just a landing page and sales page theme or can it be used for building authority sites to? Tried contacting them no reply, cheers! – http://authoritypro.com/ap3/
If no good, what theme would you recommend to use for building authority site?
Hi Mark, I don’t actually use AP3, I’ve always used AP2… You can find lots of good themes here: https://wordpress.org/themes/
