Several years ago, building MFA (Made For AdSense) niche websites was a popular way for online Marketeers to quickly make a buck. The sole purpose of building dozens of MFA niche websites (usually only a few pages deep) was to cash in by driving people from search engines to their site and hoping they click on their advertising programs such as Google AdSense.
That news is old and no longer effective and the number of MFA sites out there was and still is ridiculous. I sadly have to admit I was one of those who tried to make a few MFA sites and hope to cash in on the gold rush. I made a few bucks but it wasn’t long before the well was dried up and I was off looking for my next make money online opportunity.
Well folks, there’s a little known secret out there that’s actually quite powerful for making money online. It’s 100% legitimate and it’s called eBay affiliate marketing. Yeah, I know when you hear “eBay” and “money” in the same sentence you probably think of becoming an eBay seller.
You place product listings in the eBay marketplace, buyers bid, you pay your eBay seller fees and what you have left is your profit margin. There is, however, another way to build a business which still revolves around eBay but which doesn’t involve you selling a single thing in the eBay marketplace.
This “other way” opportunity is based on the eBay affiliate program and a great tool which makes entry into this opportunity not only possible but also super easy. This tool is called “Build A Niche Store“.
Now if you don’t know – an affiliate program enables you as an individual internet entrepreneur to promote the products of a company in exchange for a commission on all sales that you refer. You’re basically operating as an internet middleman and connecting internet browsers to particular products and companies through you own network of websites and marketing methods. Pretty cool huh?
This is the best part and what not many internet marketeers know. eBay actually invites you to promote all of their product listings in the eBay marketplace and in exchange for your efforts will pay you up to 75% of the revenue they make from each sale you refer plus up to $35 for each new active eBay member you refer. You should take a look at the eBay.com affiliate program to see what I’m talking about.
What this means is that you can earn up to three quarters of eBay’s revenue simply for connecting people to the products listed in the eBay marketplace.
Not only do you get to partner with the best branded marketplace in the world, you also get access to and control over ALL of the products listed in this marketplace. The eBay product inventory becomes YOUR product inventory and yet you do NOT have to stock items, deal with customers, organize shipping or process refunds.
Here’s an illustration to better explain how it works:
You are no longer limited to selling only those products which you can buy and sell for a profit margin. You can choose ANY niche market and promote those eBay products relevant to your chosen niche outside of the eBay marketplace, funneling targeted traffic through to eBay and into your own affiliate commissions. You can sell anything from golf clubs, sewing kits, laptops, dog collars, diamond rings, Florida real estate — there are NO limits.
At this point you might be thinking – well this sounds interesting but in reality is there any money in it? Well, here’s the shocker – eBay’s top affiliates make over 1 million dollars a month. That’s right – 8 figures a year without stocking, selling or shipping a single thing! Now eBay does provide some basic free tools to help you succeed as an eBay affiliate and build an affiliate business BUT it has been the development of a tool outside of eBay that has really opened this up as a legitimate business opportunity.
The tool, as I mentioned earlier, is called “Build A Niche Store” and what it enables you to do is build eBay affiliate websites targeted to any eBay niche you want. These act as the medium through which you funnel targeted visitors to eBay. Here’s a screenshot of some of the templates you get to work with:
Here’s an example of one targeting Golf Equipment
As you can see, these are professional looking websites that contain all of those eBay products related to their target niche inside a searchable store format, each of which automatically contains your eBay affiliate id. These stores then automatically update as new products are listed for sale and old listing expire from the eBay marketplace and the software has built in development features which enable you to create new store pages, add content to these pages, create content pages, modify your template etc.
Basically, in the space of about 10 minutes (once you are familiar with how the software works) you can create a fully functional eBay affiliate website targeted to the niche market of your choice.
Your store content is all search engine friendly which will provide the foundation for attracting targeted traffic from the search engines and you can then use the development features to attract more targeted visitors which will in turn mean more eBay affiliate commissions.
It really is a brilliant concept and I’ve been hearing great things about the guys behind the project and the member forum which you get lifetime access to when you purchase the product.
Build A Niche Store comes with a step by step user manual which will walk even the most technically inexperienced through setting up their eBay affiliate website, nine professional template layouts which can be customized (from inside your admin panel) to match your target niche, lifetime member forum access, comprehensive product support and possibly most importantly – an UNLIMITED domain license which means you can build as many of these niche websites as you want for the small one time fee.
So just think about how many niches eBay caters to and how big your eBay affiliate business could be. This product gets my full recommendation and is a great way to passively earn income once you’ve built and established your niche web sites – check it out.

People are still making a bundle off of eBay with some setting up independent stores and targeting Kijiji, Backpage, and Craiglist traffic. If you pick the right niche, work hard, and have fun doing what you’re doing, you could make a decent living.
Just wondering how many out there are making money from this program.
BANS does not support Ebay Philippines?
Thats very good info
Why is it that anytime a site allows comments, all the illiterates of the world converge on it?
