Start Affiliate marketing

From the Shouter community:

A2. Traffic does not matter in affiliate marketing and that's why I like it. If you have a right product for your users then you can seriously upscale your sales and conversions. I made my first commission when My blog gets 10 to 20 visitors per day. #ShoutersChat

In affiliate marketing, there is no fixed amount of traffic you need to get things started.

You just have to get your ways of advertising to work to you.

And lastly you can monetize even with 100 visits or lower.

But traffic targeting maters.
