    About the Author & Six Figure Affiliate BloggingMy name is Zac Johnson and Ive been an affiliate marketer for nearly 15 years. I first started when I was in high school, pushing traffic and sales to Amazon.com, and quickly found myself in the affiliate marketing industry. There are a lot of affiliate guides floating around, so I decided to create a guide with a different perspective, using affiliate marketing in conjunction with a blog to generate over $100,000 a year in sales and commissions.

    While Ive been making a living for almost 15 years as an internet marketer, I started blogging less than 3 years ago. I started my own blog at ZacJohnson.com to share my stories, spread awareness and talk about what I love doing... making money online and teaching others to do the same. This How to be the Next Six Figure Affiliate Blogger guide isnt about creating a blog on affiliate marketing, or getting lost in the make money online get rich schemes. Instead, its about finding a blogging niche and using affiliate marketing to generate revenue from that blog.

    Lets talk some numbers. When I first started ZacJohnson.com, I never planned for it to explode and become another six figure a year project, but with massive work, branding and dedication to the site, it became just that. My bread and butter is still in the affiliate marketing game. Through this free guide, I hope to inform you about both affiliate marketing and blogging... taking them both to the next level and give you a winning business model.

    If you are to walk away with anything from this guide, you must understand that if your business is online, you can work virtually anywhere in the world as long as you have a computer and internet connection. No longer are you limited to hourly wages and a 5 day work week. With the winning combination of affiliate marketing and a successful blog, you can be earning money 365 days a year. Remember, it only takes $273.97 per day to make an extra $100,000 per year. Dont quit your day job just yet... but how hard would it be for you to invest your time and efforts to make an extra $28 a day ($10,000 extra a year)... while building up a small business on the side?

    Get ready... Im about to walk you through the process of how I brought ZacJohnson.com from a blank page domain name sitting around for a while, to a six figure a year blog and how you can do the same.

    My 12 Month Case Study to ProfitsWhen I first went live with my blog at ZacJohnson.com, I decided to go with a very clean design and had no on site advertising. The beginning months of your blog are important for building up readership and focusing on content. For the first few months, there wasnt much traffic to the blog, so there was no point in trying to find advertisers for the site. Instead I concentrated on building up readership, authority and my branding.

    The blog went live in March 2007, but I didnt start trying to make a profit with the site until December 2007. It was in Dec 07, when I decided to launch a 12 month case study on the blogs revenue performance. The first month, in which the blog went profitable, it earned $1,261.81. Before the end of the 12 month case study, the blog was already topping over $6,000 a month and is now earning over six figures a year today.

    A full break down of revenue earned during that 12 month case study is shown below. From December 2007 through November 2008, the blog made over $48,000 in profit and I had spent less than a few hundred dollars on small ad testing to bring in new traffic. Web hosting costs also werent an issue, as I was hosting several of my other sites on the same server.

    The main sources of revenue for the blog were from on site advertising and network referrals. You can view each months full report and breakdown in my Blog Earnings section on ZacJohnson.com.
