Starting A Niche Site Business
Great things on this episode with Justin Cooke. Justin and his partner Joe have built thousands of of sites at EmpireFlippers.com. He is a down-to-earth guy that tells it like it is. Better yet, he makes his money actually building site — not teaching people to build sites. Pretty cool.
Justin talks about starting out, getting slapped, and what his is doing today to build sites that make money.
- How they got their start building profitable sites and flipping them.
- How it took some time to get things going (no instant success)
- Three kinds of niche sites (small, medium and large)
- Huge hits and setbacks suffered from Penguin (link networks)
- The niche they are attacking in the flipping business
- Criteria for buying expired domains
- How many site you need to really get started (it's 25 by the way)
- The importance of personal responsibility
- Is there a blueprint for success? Nope!
- What is the real failure rate and why?
