I decided to do a case study on affiliate marketing to see if it was still possible to make money using affiliate programs.
I decided to create a directory listing site, www.huntingsrc.com, in which I would list hunting guides and then recommend gear or accessories for specific hunts which would be where the affiliate links would come in.
Upon starting my case study, I did some research using Google Adwords keyword research tool to see what the competition was like and found that most of my competition was the individual guides themselves. There are a few other directory sites out there that list hunting guides, but none seem to take it to the extreme and list guides all over the world, which would be my end goal.
I have the site currently setup and it’s in it’s infancy stage. I have over 80 hunting guides listed in Colorado for a wide variety of hunt types.
