Case study how i made $400 with facebook ads in one week
UPDATE – Since this case study, Facebook has placed restrictions on age targeting due to this tactic becoming very popular.

I know a few guys doing 4-5 figures per month. Before you get started, did you know you can use THIS LINK to earn an additional $1 per t-shirt sold? Today I have decided to reveal a little case study I conducted to prove that anyone can make money with Facebook…

Improve your productivity and get more done
There is a huge sense of freedom I get from working online. However the deeper we get into online business, SEO and internet marketing the bigger our task list becomes. Managing your time effectively so that you can complete the tasks that need to be done can be challenging, especially when the heat is on. Combine that with procrastination, and you have a big problem. I don’t know a single person who doesn’t suffer from this at some stage or in some form. There is a lot to be said for just getting things done. We all know what needs…

Keyword Research 101 – Everything You Need To Know About Finding Profitable Keywords For Your Website

The foundation of any niche site is keyword research. Without it, we would be throwing mud at the wall and seeing what sticks. It’s inaccurate and is just not smart business. This guide covers everything I know about Keyword Research. I start here as I believe that it is the most integral part of building, ranking and profiting from a niche website. If I can teach you just one thing in this guide, it would be this: “Keyword research can literally make or break your website.” If you follow this guide, you will have the ability to conduct keyword research…

Niche Site Growth Challenge – Month 4 – The Finale

Niche site growth challenge month 4 the finale
So another month of the challenge has gone by, and finally, we see some big gains. I won’t beat around the bush, in June I was able to increase the niche site earnings from $895 to $2,632, just $368 short of my $3k target. For those of you who like numbers, that equates to around a 194% increase in one month. I did this using 3 simple tactics which I will cover in what will be the final episode of the case study/niche site challenge. I feel like now is a good time to close the case study as July marks the 12-month…

Niche Site Case Study 1 – Update Sep-14

Niche site case study 1 sep 14
This is the third monthly update for the Niche Site Case Study, where I will show you how I take a niche and attempt to rank a website that earns a passive income. With the ultimate goal of flipping this site for a 16-20x multiple. The First ‘Normal’ Month So after all the ups and downs of the spammy links attack, September was quiet, very quiet. In fact, I put in zero hours on the site. Why? Well partly due to lack of time and partly to give the site a break and see how it was treated by Google…

Niche Site Case Study Update – Q4 2015

Niche site case study update q4 2015
In my last update published in September, I made the decision to move to a quarterly reporting method to avoid repeating the same things each month and also to ensure there was some good info to share with you guys. Truth be told, niche site-building can be pretty boring and mundane at times, link building isn’t glamorous, neither are PBN’s, keyword research or writing 2,000 words per day. However, it is exactly these consistent actions that make the difference between a successful niche site and a dud. In this post, I will take you through what went down in quarter 4 of 2015…

Niche Site Case Study 2 – Introduction

Niche site case study 2 introduction
In my last post, we wrapped up the first niche site case study which was run over a 10 month period, resulted in the selling of the site and bringing in a profit of over $10,000 throughout the study. I also alluded to the desire I had to jump right in and start a brand new case study, so I did. This is the first of what I hope to be many updates on the progress of a brand new website I started at the beginning of June. I am by no means a ‘guru’ and I am always learning just as much as…

Niche Site Growth Challenge – Month 3

Niche site growth challenge month 3
This is the third and what should have been the final update in my niche site challenge. Which was to take a site from earning $1k per month, to $3k per month in 90-days. I’ve failed to hit my $3k goal so I will continue this challenge until I do…! It seems with this project I made a few mistakes that I’m not afraid to admit to: I underestimated how much time would be required to put in in order to grow this site. I overestimated how much free time I had to devote to this project. I’ve learned a ton about…

Niche Site Growth Challenge – Update Month 2

Niche site growth challenge month 2
Today we will discuss the niche site challenge I have set for myself, which is to take an existing niche site that was earning circa $1k/month and build it to a steady $3k/month within 90-days (or as quickly as I can!) Last month we looked at how the first 30-days didn’t exactly get off to a flying start, with the loss of my best-converting CPA offer and also screwing up the indexing of the site, I lost a ton of traffic and sales. In today’s update, we will look at: How I managed to increase income in April What I actually achieved across…

Niche Site Growth Challenge – Month 1

Niche site growth challenge month 1
In my last post, I discussed a new challenge I had set for myself, which was to take an existing niche site that was earning around $1k /month and build it to a steady $3k /month within 90-days. In today’s update, I will reveal: 2 Epic Failures in March How my income on this site grew…or not! What I actually achieved in March My Plans for April My new website investments What Went Wrong in March? To kick things off, we’ll start with the bad. I don’t know about you, but I hate those blogs where everything is rosy and…

Niche Site Case Study Update – Q1 2016

Niche site case study update q1 2016
Growing an Existing Website from $1k to $3k /month Income After what turned out to be a pretty passive 2015 when it came to the niche site building side of my business, I wanted 2016 to have a bigger focus on building, ranking, and profiting from these small-medium websites. We’re now at the end of February and it’s time to pick up the pace a little and ramp up my efforts and time investment on these sites. The Goal – $1,000 to $3,000 The ultimate overarching goal of this journey is to gain more experience with growing an existing website, in…

Niche Site Case Study Update – Aug-15

Niche site case study update aug 15
So I’m a little late in getting this update out, I actually recorded the video about 2 weeks ago, however, I have been waiting for my new theme to be developed for this blog, which lends itself nicely towards video posts and I wanted to test it out. Check out the video below for the full update on the niche site case study. We’re about to enter the link building phase and I talk about my plans for September & October and how I will start to rank top 3 for a bunch of keywords.

How I Made $10,000 From My Niche Site Case Study

How i made $10,000 from my niche site case study
Back in October of 2013, I registered a brand new domain with the plan to build a niche site in what I believed to be a low competition niche. The plan was simple, build the site, add some content, and let it age. Once I start to see movement in the SERP’s, I will then add more content and start my SEO. I did what I set out to do and I have since sold that site, which has generated over $10,000 in income. This article takes you step-by-step through my exact process. It’s important to point out from the…

Niche Site Case Study Update – Sep-15

Niche site case study update sep 15
Month three is over and we’re already a week into month number four. Time flies in the niche site game and as such, I have decided to make these updates a quarterly thing for a few reasons. Reason 1 – It now takes longer to rank a site. Period. I don’t care what niche or keywords you target, it just takes longer to rank a site these days. There are obviously ways to speed up the process such as: Buy an aged expired or auction domain Use social signals Use some paid traffic Target super long-tail keywords But the fact…

This is the first update for the Niche Site Case Study, where I will show you how I take a niche and attempt to rank a website that ultimately earns a passive income. With the ultimate goal of flipping this site for a 16-20x multiple. Starting On Shaky Ground Shortly after I introduced this niche site case study to you last month, I was contacted (via email) by someone with less than good intentions. It was a weak attempt at blackmail. Here is how it went down; I have removed the guy’s name and email as I don’t want anything to happen…
