After months of reading about Build a Niche Store (BANS), I’ve decided to go ahead and create my own store. I’ve heard many success stories of people making up to $1,000 a day by using BANS and I knew I just had to jump on this wagon! Firstly…
What is BANS?
BANS (Build A Niche Store) is a website builder which enables you to create a network of traffic pulling, money making niche websites focused around the eBay affiliate opportunity.
You simply choose your niche…build and develop your site…promote…make money…rinse and repeat.
That’s the system and that’s exactly what Build A Niche Store enables you to do!
This post ties in great with the one I made last week on the new eBay Partner Network. The reason I hadn’t joined BANS sooner was because I’m not a fan of Commission Junction, but now that eBay has their own affiliate program set up, it makes the entire process worth my time.
Upon signing up for BANS, you’re given exclusive access to the software and user forum. There’s also a complete user manual to help you install the software on your domain. The user forum is something extra special though – it’s completely active with thousands of members sharing tips, tricks and advice on how to make their BANS website better.
Before you set up your domain though, you need to decide on a niche for what your site will be based on. For this I went to eBay Pulse to see what’s hot right now. I also used the SEO Book keyword suggestion tool to research some high traffic keywords and phrases. Once I decided on a topic, I registered a domain name and installed the software. In a matter of 10 minutes I was up and running.
Here’s what you’ll need to open up your very own BANS store.
- eBay Partner Network account (free)
- BANS software ($97.00)
- ClickBank account (free)
- Domain name ($9.99/year)
- Web Hosting (CHEAP!)
eBay Partner Network
As mentioned in a previous post, this is eBay’s affiliate program where you get paid for every person you refer to eBay who makes a purchase. Signing up is quick and easy.
Probably the most easiest and user-friendly software I’ve ever used. Oh yeah, it can make you money too!
This isn’t mandatory, but if you want to make money by referring others to BANS, you need ClickBank. Each time someone buys the software using your link, you’ll make $44.00.
Easily register a domain at Tribune Hosting for $9.99/year. Sure you can get those $1.99 domains on other sites, but they aren’t the best choice for numerous reasons, which I won’t get into here.
I recommend using HostGator for web hosting. Right now until May 1st you can save 20% on hosting by using promo code “SPRING”. Plans start at $4.95/month.
What if I don’t make money or I don’t like BANS?
No problem. Because this product is sold through ClickBank, you can get a complete refund within 8 weeks.
So what’s kind of BANS store did I create?
