Hey — hope you are having a great day, and are enjoying my daily post frenzy that I started on Thursday with my post on the importance of lists. I'll be posting daily for the next few days (possibly longer) and then it will be back to my normal 3 posts per week (Monday, Wed Friday). We'll see how that goes in November. So much to do, and so little time.
October Was A Crazy Month
If you have been following my over the last month, you know I am working on three main projects at the moment. It can be a bit confusing at times, so I wanted to update you on the status:
- Build 30 quality “AdSense sites” in a variety of niches. This whole thing was motivated by my post about how to make $5000/month on line. Now, I am calling these AdSense sites, but, in reality I have decided to add a variety of monetization options including eBay links (using the phpBay bay plugin), some ads through the PepperJam affiliate network and other affiliate offers. Instead of 30 “AdSense sites,” this will result in 30 “mini-authority” sites. I call them “mini-Authority” because they will not have high frequency original content. Rather, there will be a mix of content from a variety of sources presented in a useful way. Status: all 30 domains are purchased and up and running. About 15 sites are actually running and some are generating a little revenue. I think I sould be able to “finish” them and drip back to 1 hour of work per site per month by December. We'll see.
- Full evaluation of Firepow. In building these sites, I realized that Firepow might be just the tool that I need to make this happen. I have been helping Andrew's team beta-test Blog Import into Firepow (which is working for me in most cases). Now that that is complete, I plan to get back to blogging about Firepow late next week. Don't forget that I have arranged for a $300 Firepow discount for you if you cannot wait for my complete review and recommendation.
- Build my email list using $7 Secrets. This is the big distraction for me at the moment. I was so impressed with Josh Spaulding's New Age Email Marketing report, that I decided to move the management of my email lists to his “formula.” Part of that experiment involves growing the list, and that means I needed to write a great ebook to offer for sale for $7 as recommended in $7 Secrets. That eBook is complete, and will launch Tuesday here on MasonWorld.com. If you have not read Josh's report, I recommend it (it is only $7, as you might expect).
So, that is what is going on at the moment.
Hope that clears things up a bit.
By the way, things are likely to get worse before they get better.
I have learned a lot of tricks building these 30 sites (and others before them), and before the end of the year, I will be launching a new Niche Site Building service. If you are interested, you can see the current sales copy at NicheSiteNow.com.
Also, am hoping to do a PPC experiment with one of my internet marketing buddies before the end of the year. As you may remember, I purchased Commission Blueprint, and I am itching to try out PPC.
So, hang in there — lots of stuff to come before the end of the year.
