    I've been doing this by myself. Building, monetizing, optimizing, advertising..
    It's a problem I have, I tend to do too much myself and then the overall results suffer.

    So I'm wondering if you successful aff-able people also are DIYers, or do you outsource? And if you do outsource, what and to whom? How have the results been?

    So, yes, this is always a challenge many of us face when growth requires more than we have time for. You have identified the issue and the solution. Of course you need to outsource, or start building a team. Maybe a team you outsource to.

    I rely now on a developer, graphics engineers, content contributors, landing page specialists, etc. Growth requires incorporating team members to pick up some of the stuff you have been doing so you have time for other parts of the business.

    A quick follow-up question: Do you put your focus on just one site, or are you running multiple sites?

    Are you using scheduling tool (like Google Calendar)?
    Try to assign specific blocks of time to work
    I schedule the next week's most important work
    Normally do it Friday morning
    You can automate many things (software updates, commission reports, news notifications, calendar alerts)
    I prefer to automate, and learn how to automate, than outsource
    Why? Because it risks quality
    Someone else won't care about your project like you do

    I enjoy the challenge of DIY
    But mainly for content, product research and SEO
    Setting up a new site from domain reg to indexed in 24 hours
    You can use that outside affiliate world too
    People will pay for fast, quality results
    Setup website in 24 for $500 is a service
    Some people charge less
    Generally their results are worse
    So that's a skillset I try to master

    I can do front end coding
    But back end programming, f@ck no !!
    So outsourcing back end technical work to a programmer
    Best to find one in a poorer country than yours
    If $500 pays their monthly bills
    They will normally take it more seriously
    Then you can get alot done on budget
    It's a win-win

    1 site is risky
    5 sites is better
    10 sites is my goal for 2021
    10 sites x $10/day is break-even
    Then target $5/day incremental improvements
    • March $10/day x 10 sites = $100/day - $3,000/month
    • April $15/day x 10 sites= $150/day - $4,500/month
    • May $20/day x 10 sites= $200/day - $6,000/month
    • June $25/day x 10 sites= $250/day - $7,500/month
    • July $30/day x 10 sites= $300/day - $9,000/month
    • August $35/day x 10 sites= $350/day - $10,500/month
    • September $40/day x 10 sites= $400/day - $12,000/month
    • October $45/day x 10 sites= $450/day - $13,500/month
    • November $50/day x 10 sites= $500/day - $15,000/month
    • December $55/day x 10 sites= $550/day - $16,500/month
    Commission Total $100,000 ($2,500 Jan-Feb, $97,500 Mar-Dec)

    You can try 'shotgun' approach
    Same overall strategy but different niches
    I stick to one niche so I know it inside out
    Might be couple of years before master it
    But plan to hit $100k this year

    Is there a specific platform that you use to outsource your projects?

    My root cronab is managing my crew of bots.
    The bots manage datafeeds and their databases for the servers making updated content.
    Next I will try using AI text copy writers and the only human element will be editing that content where it gets a bit AI 'goofy' --I have a mastery of the English language and sales communication. Hopefully, editing will not be too time intensive.

    Build a successful organization of non humans --90%

    I did this when I was in construction years ago to some degree too. One skid-loader and one laborer replaced 4 laborers with wheelbarrows and didn't complain a lot either :D

    I currently have now 7 content sites focused on high end luxury. I have many landing pages for CPA offer funnels, anywhere from 8 or 9 to as many as a couple dozen sometimes. Content sites require a different set of skills and management compared to niche funnels for CPA.

    When I need to add a team member, or replace a team member, I look everywhere. Freelancer, Upwork, Indeed, etc. I also put the word out to others in my circle of influence because they may have outsource assets that they may be willing to share, and often do.
