How To Create A Multi Profit Site
Build Your Own Niche Site From Scratch in 8 Weeks
Do you wonder if you have what it takes?
A Niche Site Project subscriber sent me an email:
“I’m sick of being a failure and seeing no success! I am so ready to finally do the work and make it work no matter what!
I am sick of trying everything without doing anything, getting stuck in not knowing how to do it in a productive manner.
I want to leave all that behind and truly focus on one course from beginning to end, and do whatever it takes to finally see the light at the end of this dark tunnel.
I want and desire to be self-employed and really work full time as an online entrepreneur that makes money, not just playing at it or trying it out for size.
I’ve been at it for years and it is amazing how far I’ve come and the amount of wasted money spent without any results. I want a big change, a change for the better.“
This isn’t a unique story…
- This is a smart, hard-working person.
- She’s read dozens of blog posts.
- She’s listened to hours of podcasts.
- And she’s watched hours of YouTube content about Niche Sites.
But that story is not unique…
Building a profitable & passive authority site that earns from multiple income sources isn’t easy…
…it takes hard work…
…and a proven plan…
You have the drive, you just need a repeatable plan.
One of the main issues is that there are so many sources out there for information…
One blogger says you should do one thing……
And another blogger says you should never do that thing…
It’s confusing and frustrating…
You end up following some advice from blogger #1…
and then change your strategy…
Then you’re right back where you started.
And you think: “How can I do that?”
When someone creates an Amazon Niche Site in a competitive niche, there’s no magic or luck involved.
You may not be able to detect it, but there’s always something (simple) that helped get them to earn commissions and then rank #1 in Google – generating a massive amount of free, organic traffic.
It’s simply a matter of following a PROVEN, step-by-step blueprint.
It’s been tried and tested by dozens of students. Students just like you…
Think about what it would be like to have a step-by-step plan for creating a niche site that earned money for you every day…whether you worked on it or not.
You can spend the day with your kids… Or, maybe go on a hike… Or maybe just binge-watch your favorite streaming show…
You simply need a blueprint to follow…
A plan that showed you how to find PROFITABLE niches that YOU CAN RANK.
A plan that showed you how to create content that converts visitors into Amazon customers.
And, showed you how to GET free, organic traffic from Google using proven, reliable scripts and templates that you can use and reuse…
It’d be fantastic if you could follow a plan like a recipe to bake a cake. It would be reliable and repeatable.
You’re probably thinking, “Doug, how did you figure out this system?”
I’ve Developed an Amazon Affiliate Blueprint That Gets Consistent Results…
It wasn’t easy & took years of testing with students…
I’m Doug Cunnington, the founder of Niche Site Project.
Here’s what happened…
I didn’t know a thing about niche sites. I never even heard of them!
I didn’t know about keywords. Heck, I never even heard about WordPress.
But I knew that some people, regular people like you and me, were making $2, $5, or $500 per DAY online.
And somehow they figured it out.
So I thought, “Hey, I want to do that too. I want to STOP TRADING my time for money…”
Things Didn’t Go How I Planned…
I started my first site! I bought a hosting plan, a domain, and wrote what I thought was great content.
No visitors got to my site. No one clicked on my ads. No one bought anything through my links.
I was frustrated and confused because I wasn’t just guessing about what to do…
I was following the so-called “experts” and doing what they said:
- My site had great quality content that I wrote myself.
- I optimized my title tags and description tags with keywords, but I wasn’t keyword stuffing.
- I shared on social media and I was trying to network in my niche.
BUT nothing I tried seem to work.
Then, something worked…
I created an Amazon Affiliate Site from scratch…
And it was featured on the Niche Pursuits Blog and Podcast in 2013.
Then I created another site and sold it with Empire Flippers.
I’ve told my story and been featured all over the place:
The thing I realized that systems and processes were the missing pieces. It’s something no one talks about but is ultra important.
The results can speak for themselves, especially from my students which you’ll hear more about in a moment.
There are several new success stories from late 2020.
YES – The Amazon Affiliate business model is still effective, even with the recent commission rate changes in April 2020
I don’t just sell courses. I have a few Amazon Affiliate sites myself…
Now, I have one site that is doing well…RIGHT NOW in 2021…and has been for years.
I don’t just talk about how to build these sites like some people. I actually KNOW how to build a site. And I know how to GROW a site.
Introducing Multi Profit Site
This course was created with proven principles, techniques, and strategies that work.
It’s broken down into easy-to-follow, step-by-step lessons that allow you to walk through each of the phases of creating a profitable niche site earning from affiliate sources and display ads.
Each lesson will leave you with a plan and schedule so you can methodically do what you’ve learned.
No reverse engineering.
No more blog posts, YouTube, or podcasts.
Just follow the proven, repeatable process.
Multi Profit Site provides the exact blueprint to follow for a successful Authority or Niche Site.
Imagine what it would be like to wake up each morning and see the new sales you made overnight while you slept.
It’s about creating something (and doing the work upfront) that will allow you to make money while YOU:
- Spend time with your family
- Spend time with your friends
- Sit on the beach while on vacation
- Hike in the mountains
- Binge watch Breaking Bad
- Or whatever you want!
The special thing about “passive income” is that when you stop trading time for money, income is scalable. It’s scalable in a way that’s not possible if you have a regular, full-time job.

What Will You Learn in Multi Profit Site
How To Create a Site & Get Traffic in 8 Weeks
Starting a Multi Profit Site sounds…
When you’re just starting out, it sounds like a huge goal, impossible even.
It’s not impossible if you treat it like a project.
We break it down into tiny chunks of work. That’s where my project management background is essential.
I’ve worked on multi-million dollar projects and helped break the work down into manageable chunks.
It’s not about “get rich quick tactics” or “gaming the system” – It’s about following a refined process that’s been tested again and again.
People talk about publishing massive amounts of content and building “authority sites”, right?
You should publish sufficient content, and avoid trying to publish more than you can handle.
But you don’t need to start publishing huge amounts of content right off the bat.
In Multi Profit Site, you’ll be implementing my proprietary Content Traffic Profit Sprint that gets you traffic fast.
Yep, 8 weeks.
If you work along with the course, then you’ll be able to get traffic to your site if not sooner.
12 Units of Video Lessons
I cover everything from finding a niche to picking a domain name and theme.
Plus I show you all the behind the scenes tips and tricks that I know. I’ll go over all the details later.
I don’t hold anything back.
I even show you a site that I started along with the course.
It’s several hours of video training, over-the-shoulder tutorials, and real-life examples.
A Proven, Repeatable Blueprint
I’m a Project Management Professional and that means I’m an expert in setting up systems.
It’s not enough to set up systems — they have to be simple and easy to follow. So whether it’s a corporate system implementation project or a niche site, the system needs to be straight forward.
That’s what I’ve done with niche sites.
I’ve been able to create a system that works not just for me, but it also works for people that I teach.

But what’s the deal with the slash in Amazon affiliate rates in April 2020? Is affiliate marketing still worth investing my time into, you ask?
This is a big change and commission fees paid to Associates will certainly be lower. Amazon Affiliate Marketing is still a solid business model for the side hustler and person looking to get started making money online. But it won’t be as lucrative as before April 2020.
Remember that Amazon has the lion share of the online retail market, 38%. Walmart is at #2 with 5% of the market.
In this course, Doug addresses the Amazon Commission rate changes, including working with other affiliate programs, display ads, and direct relationships.
He is a true believer that affiliate marketing is far from dead. One key takeaway from the Amazon news is that you shouldn’t put all your eggs in one basket. The key to being successful in the affiliate space is diversifying your revenue model.
The fact that income is down for most affiliate marketers doesn’t mean it’s a bad time to start. In fact, it means quite the opposite. Why?
Less competition. Some people are choosing to not take action in light of the uncertainty
If you start now, you’ll be ahead of the people that are waiting around. It also means you’re a driven person like me! So if you start building your business now, it will be stronger and more established coming out of this recession;
Some niches are less impacted. If you take a look at the fee rates change, you will notice that not all product categories were affected by it. I have one site that has stable earnings after the commission rate change;
Amazon is still great for doing research and finding out what products are in demand. You’ll know exactly what’s selling;
Amazon has an estimated 100M Prime members in the US and a 38% market share. So the volume of sales that Amazon has still makes its affiliate program one of the best ways to monetize content;
Explore other affiliate programs. Look at the products you sell the most and go to the companies directly. Maybe they have their own affiliate programs and you could set up a relationship with them?
Private labeling your product on Amazon. If you have a niche you know you are selling a lot of products, consider private labeling them yourself. Over time, you might be making the lion’s share of revenue instead of the 2% you are making now due to the current Amazon commission rates.
Speaking of physical products…it’s an option to NOT sell on Amazon too. You could dropship a product that you know sells well, or even start selling directly to your visitors and would-be customers.
