This Is The Best Time To Be An Affiliate Marketer

The forth quarter of the year is the best time to be in the affiliate marketing game. Hell, it’s the best time to do anything that has to do with making money online. Q4 is the party quarter. Over 1/3 of TTZ Media’s yearly income is generated in the last three months of the year. If you don’t have your site up and running by now, you’ve missed the money train, again.

I did a review of Paul Bourque from Uber Affiliate earlier this month. Paul Bourque is a super affiliate. However, many readers dismissed him because of his age (he is 19) and because he jokingly changed his FeedBurner image to display 87,864 readers instead of his true count of 321. Well, it seems Paul decided to silence his critics today by posting a screen shot of his affiliate earnings.


The screen shot represent Azoogle earnings from October 20th to November 20th. I have feeling Paul is going to have a very merry Christmas!

    Those are some very very impressive figures.

    1. I agree. Those are some big numbers.

    2. Hey, how do you know he didn’t Photoshop that either?

      1. MoneyNing says:

        He might’ve but it doesn’t matter. I know someone can do it 🙂

      2. It’s not photoshoped. Paul has been making huge affiliate commissions for a while now.

    3. Will says:

      WTF. it’s time like that make me think I’m doing something wrong in AM. Time to rethink my strategy on marketing 🙄

  2. Matt Garrett says:

    and I thought I’d had a good month, wow!
    think I better go read your article on Paul…

  3. crocsy says:

    wow that is amazing, I’d say he has a great future ahead of him

    1. Never mind his future, he’s not doing bad now as it is!

  4. Ash Haque says:

    That’s pretty amazing, PS. read comment #10 on that page 🙂

    1. Well his report is from a network of sites…and the report of John Chowis only for … i think i’d get scared if he reported all his earnings (including TTZ media).

  5. Bobby Rio says:

    Damn, and I was happy when I topped $3000 this month.. I’ve got a long way too go.

  6. vpl says:

    Dang… He knows what he’s doing. That’s so amazing!

  7. Chad says:

    Definitely a good month. I do about 35% of my yearly income in these 2 months too.

  8. Wow that is great i better jump on the train… – Why not?

  9. Mike Huang says:

    It seems like we were all wrong about him 🙂 He’s making it big time!


    1. Mike says:

      why do you have a picture of a girl for your icon, when you are guy? just curious…

  10. Ben says:

    “A very marry Christmas”

    You betcha – those figures will bring a tonne of eligible females out of the woodwork!

    1. Mike says:

      no doubt about that!

  11. Wow! I’m seriously impressed. I didn’t consider Azoogle.


  12. Israel says:

    nice numbers. good stuff.

  13. I have never even looking into azoogle…maybe I will… right now 🙄

    1. It’s a good network to go with but the application form is a nightmare!

  14. Shaun Carter says:

    I’d be curious to know what his net income is for the month. Specifically what level of advertising does he spend to generate that much revenue?

    1. Matthew says:

      Taken from a comment on uberaffiliate’s blog 🙂

      “I’m not sure on those exact figures. This month the profit is a little over $50,000 on the 120k revenue. With Azoogle that is.”

  15. Those are great numbers! 🙂 Great job Paul! 😀

  16. Steve says:

    I wonder how much of his earnings paid for his copy of Photoshop? 👿

    1. MoneyNing says:

      Probably downloaded from Bit Torrent so free 👿

      1. Mike says:

        yeah probably!

  17. What are some of his sites?

  18. It is too good to believe…I am thinking of doing some good photoshop work lol 🙂

    1. Paul says:

      Nah, no Photoshopping. I’m not too concerned with fame and I’d have no reason to fake something like that.

      1. Jason says:

        Sure you do, Paul. You asked in your prior blog post why your blog wasn’t growing at all. Overnight, you gained almost 100 RSS readers with this earnings post. Not only that, but Im sure you could use your ‘Earnings’ to get referals from any network you’d like. For example, I’m sure your getting flooded with emails from people wanting you to teach/show/advise and help them out with their own projects. You can just send them to whichever program you want, collect the referal and if they end up making money themselves, get a piece of that as well.

        I’m not saying you are faking your numbers. Only you and your AM know that. I’m just saying with the publicity, links and fanboys that you picked up, there are reasons to fake it 😉

        1. Nick says:

          He is not faking his numbers. He has helped me with my ppc marketing in the past so I know he knows what he is talking about.

  19. Paul says:

    I appreciate the link John. To all those who think I’m just a punk 19 year old kid…well I’ll partially agree there. But I do have somewhat of a clue as to what I’m talking about, and if people don’t want to read it…that’s their choice.

    1. On the contrary Paul, do read my comment on the main post. I do not think that you are a punk. Far from it. It is people like you who will take the 21st century forward to something like never before. All the very best to you.

    2. You’re going a great job Paul. Keep it up.

    3. Joeychgo says:

      Well, I dont think of you as a punk 19 year old. Just keep working at things and you’ll do well.

  20. Dandruff says:

    Even I like the last quarter of the year. It’s more relaxed and chilled out. It is even the most party time of the year.

  21. I think Shawn has asked the $200,000 question. Did he spend $10,000 to make $200,000, or $150,000? or $210,000?

  22. Dustin says:

    As a fellow 19 year old, I’ve got to say that Paul is what gives the “younger” crowd confidence to do it. But I wonder exactly HOW he does it though. And I agree, 4th Quarters is always good (think Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas as well as New Years!) Its basically “holiday (or as you said John) … party quarter.”

  23. johnCard says:

    yeah looks great, but how much did he really net?

  24. Merry christmas Paul. Did all this come from one site? I think this beats shoemoney by a mile !!!

  25. Lincoln says:

    The only thing he’s proved is that you can do anything with Photoshop. :mrgreen:

    1. Agreed, but if he didn’t Photoshop it, great job!

    2. Do you really need to inform everyone of your ignoracce?

  26. MyDeals says:

    Damn…respect…much respect…Wow!!

  27. Lincoln says:

    All kidding aside, sooner or later you need to slow down a bit or you’ll quickly burn out by the time you’re 30. Remember, health before wealth, bros before hos. :mrgreen:

    1. Another way of looking at it is, make hay while the sun shines!

  28. Paul says:

    I’m not sure on the actual net of that month (as it was kind of in the middle of two months). This month so far there’s roughly $50,000 profit on the $119 I’ve made in Azoogle.

    1. Yeah but how much do you have to give to your mum? 😉

      Seriously though I’m sure plenty of us would be happy with those figures. You’ve obviously got a nice well tested system going.

  29. Hey Paul,
    I signed up with Azoogle, but have yet to do anything with them. I wonder if I call my rep at Azoogle if they would give me some insight on what offers to promote and HOW everyone is promoting them?

    One thing I’ve noticed is that the IN thing to do seems to be posting screenshots of earnings. This generates a lot of inbound links. People then go to your blog, shoemoney’s, etc. and perhaps sign up under you.

    So maybe the real secret is to recruit an ARMY of people to promote offers and not even bother with promoting them yourself? Who knows… all I know is I gotta figure this stuff out!

  30. that’s awesome
    really awesome. I hope one day i could reach that amount
    Hopefully some day 😀

  31. SEO Vibe says:

    Definitely a happy turkey day with those figures, a dollar per click average over that large a number of clicks is impresive in any ppc setup.

  32. Etienne Teo says:

    I simply couldn’t get it working for me on azoogle, might be because i am from other countries, their functions on registrations are pretty weird because of the tax/ssn and stuff. :mrgreen:

  33. Rich Sage says:

    Seems like he’s in the top 1% –not bad for a 19-year-old. I am strongly considering going with Azoogle ads.

  34. bloggernoob says:

    wow. i wish i was so wise when i was 19. better late then never. im going to start setting up my azoogle ads

  36. Hmmmm. I see that you have corrected the “marry Christmas” to “Merry Christmas”

  37. The computer and the internet have changed our lives. People at younger and younger age are able to figure out how to exploit the opportunities that this revolution has brought about and are to be encouraged. Just as you are now doing. I congratulate Paul and wish him a very happy season indeed.

    1. Joeychgo says:

      I couldnt agree more. I personally like to see our young people doing productive things and learning how to be self starters.

  38. Interwebhunt says:

    Now those are some nice numbers to see when you login to check your stats! :mrgreen:

  39. revenuerobot says:

    wow that is an awesome screenshot… congrats to him.. taxes at the end of the year must be a pain in the A$$… (always thinkin ahead) :mrgreen:

  40. ayahshiva says:

    wow, he is become young millionaire now

  41. MoneyNing says:

    I’ve always wanted to start but like he says, stop talking about doing it and just do it.

    I’m starting tonight!

  42. royston says:

    Amazing numbers. I have some more inspiration now to get my butt working.

  43. Can anyone guess exactly what he is doing to make this kind of money?

    We know it is all from azoogle, but I wonder what offers he is running and what he is doing to get the traffic to convert, etc? Adwords?

    Anyone have a guess?

    1. Paul says:

      You can try and figure it out and crunch numbers/EPCs all day…people have emailed me with their thoughts.

      Nobody is going to correctly guess the niche :).

  44. Gosh, people always think things are done with “photo shop”.
    While they are many fakes online, get real. There is money to be made. It just requires work – and some automation secrets paired with smart keyword and market analysis.


  45. Yeah, you’re right JC. This is the best time of the year.
    But the strategies which work this year may not work next year, so we’ve to be on our toes all the years Q4.

  46. dede says:

    You’re mocking us, right?
    That’s the last dude on earth you can trust figures from.

    1. Paul says:

      Because I faked a FEEDBURNER screenshot as a joke? C’mon now.

      I still can’t believe people take the Feedburner thing so seriously…I made it a ridiculous 87k readers for a reason…it was supposed to look absurd.

      And if you knew anything about affiliate marketing, you’d know that there are people making daily what I make in a month.

  47. Shams says:

    I think only few sites can be really very successful with affiliates.

  48. MisurA says:

    If he is making 200k a month, why in the HELL would he buy a review on John Chow dot com? Why would he spend the $400 on a review? Why not just GIVE John the $400? 200k * 12 months = 2.4 mill. I think the ‘uber’ affiliate kid would have bigger fish to fry then a stupid $400 review me.

    Photoshop + Azoogle screenshot = That picture.

  49. soundofgold says:

    If you look over at his blog, he also shows that the figure of $200k+ is REVENUE not profit. He spent about 110k on AdWords so we are really talking about 90k profit.

    Still great money for a month’s work by any means. 🙂
