Affiliate Marketing Blog from Kieron Donoghue

How appropriate that Kieron Donoghue ordered this ReviewMe review for his blog about affiliate and Internet marketing. As you may have noticed, I’ve been getting more and more into affiliate marketing and it has been accounting for a ever increasing share of my monthly blog revenue. When done correctly, affiliate marketing can be one of your biggest moneymakers. Any new resource that can help improve affiliate earnings is welcome. And Kieron’s affiliate marketing blog does just that.

Who Is Kieron Donoghue

According to Kieron Donoghue about me profile, Kieron is the following:

kieronpic3.jpg

My name is Kieron Donoghue and I run UK Offer Media Ltd. My official title is Director but that sounds too serious and grown up! I thought it would be fun to post a daily (well hopefully daily) blog, writing about my experiences in New Media and more specifically Affiliate Marketing. I’ll include some personal stuff too, probably about my other passion, music.

Kieron specializes in making money online through websites that push affiliate deals. Some of his sites include Broadband Providers, Cheap Mobiles, Credit Card, Health and Beauty, Jewellery, Loans and UK Offers. You can see a more complete list of Kieron’s affiliate sites on his blog, here.org.uk.

Does Kieron make money from these sites? Here’s a print out of his December to January bank statement showing he made about $140,000.

The Blog of Kieron Donoghue

The Kieron Donoghue blog has been around even longer than this blog. It was started on April 4, 2005. In those early days, Kieron would end his blog post by telling what music he’s listening to. He still does that to this very day.

Kieron has done a good job on keeping his blog updated. There’s usually at least one new blog post everyday and on days when there isn’t one, Kieron will post two or three posts the next day to make up for it. Some of his recent posts that affiliate marketers would be interested in include:

Kieron discusses many different affiliate networks in his blog but nearly all of them are UK based – not surprising since he lives in the UK. However, the advice he dispenses is timeless and applies to all affiliate marketers and not just UK ones. He uses his own affiliate sites for many case study examples.

Monetizing Kieron Donoghue

Kieron waited a long time before monetizing his blog. As a matter of fact, Kieron didn’t offer advertising on his blog until February of this year.

Are you interested in advertising on this blog? Traffic levels are increasing on a daily basis and I am currently number 4 for Affiliate Marketing in Google and number 3 in Google UK results for Affiliate Marketing.

In addition to direct banners, Kieron runs Google AdSense under each blog post. However, you won’t see the Google Ad on the front page. Kieron can improve AdSense performance by adding it to his home page. At his stated ad rate, Kieron is making $1,000 per month from here.org.uk, plus whatever Google AdSense and that buyat banner brings in. That’s very good income level for a blog at his size.

To attract more direct advertisers, Kieron needs to increase the traffic to his blog and increase his RSS readership. This review should help him do both. I’ve added Kieron’s blog to my Google reader (he offers a full feed RSS). Anyone who has a $300,000 a month PPC budget is definitely worth checking out.

  9. My question is how much did he spend to make that 140,000k?

    1. Matthew says:

      There is a thread over at sitepoint from about a year ago. If I remember correctly the statement above (which is UK and in Β£’s) is just 1 page for the monthly bank statement. I think he mentiones how much he spends, but it’s been a year or so since I read that post at sitepoint.

    2. Matt says:

      Remembering back to Kierons sitepoint thread, I think he spends something like $300,000 to make $140,000 profit. So he gets back roughly $440,000 each month..

    3. Mybloggo says:

      I think he spend a lot time to make it

  10. Awesome review John! Very informative.

  11. tory says:

    He’s a great guy to try and follow.

  17. J.D. says:

    There’s no shame in getting sold something is there?

    Because I’ll admit, I was sold into subscribing to this guy’s feed.

    Damn you John Chow! Damn you!

    While I haven’t even touched affiliate marketing, mostly because I can’t think of what I could honestly promote with passion, it’s nice to have another resource to read through about the topic should I get an idea or two.

    1. I agree. I am waiting until I find something I would want to buy before going into slinging affiliate deals.

  21. Marc says:

  27. Kieron is one more subscription on my RSS reader.

  28. Nathan Roe says:

    thats a great site you’ve got going there! πŸ˜€

  29. I could invest $3000 per month and share profit 50/50 if you teach me how to make that money. But I expect it being only profit and not loose.
    Can someone help?

  30. Since my last posting, I have checked out Kieron’s site. Very well done!

  31. Click Input says:

    I’ve been reading his blog for ages, he tells it straight up and could in some be considered like the Shoemoney of the UK πŸ˜›
