Would you trade $1000 for $2000? How about $10,000 for $18,000?

If you’re anything like me, I’ll make those trades all day long!

Well, Deacon Hayes is doing exactly that every month through his blog, Facebook ads, and affiliate marketing.

Although he’d been blogging for years, his traffic and revenue had kind of stagnated.

Inspired by the success of The Penny Hoarder using a similar strategy in a similar niche, Deacon decided to jump in and throw $1000 toward his new Facebook Ads experiment. Within a month he’d effectively doubled his investment.

Ten months later he’s built a beautiful machine that combines compelling helpful content, affiliate relationships, and the massive reach of Facebook.

In this episode, you’ll hear the type of content Deacon has found most profitable to promote, the types of ads he runs, and how he’s able to get his costs per click down to around $0.05.

  1. I’m curious if he had to personally message his affiliates to ask for a link or if they were already available.

    Also, I wonder how often he generated original and fresh content for his finance blog. I love talking about investing but I don’t know if I would be able to do it consistently for six years, on a daily basis.

    Interesting talk! Thanks so much!

    • Thanks Todd! So my understanding is that most companies have or had pre-existing affiliate programs through networks like CJ, Linkshare, FlexOffers, etc. Then it was just a matter of joining the programs and using the links provided by the networks.
