Some time ago I came across a post on the Warrior forum that outlined how a guy built aÂ portfolioÂ of 235 sites that make him over $500,000 a year. He doesn’t sell any info products, and he doesn’t have to blog his ass off to keep the traffic coming in.
Suffice to say, he had my attention.
The thread on the forum ended up being 14 pages long and he went into extreme detail on how to replicate his model. I spent all day reading every bit of it and came away with what is now my business model. Join my mailing list and I’ll send you a copy of my notes.
How did I know he was for real? I didn’t. But for a guy to share that much detail without one single affiliate link buried in the content strongly suggested that he was telling the truth. All I had to do was follow his recipe and I would know for sure.And follow his recipe I did. In the following 30 days, I launched over 20 niche sites; all of which sell physical products, and guess what? My sites are making sales just like he said they would.
I guess he wasn’t full of crap after all.
How it Works
The key to making this model work, as he was sure to point out, was to REALLY understand how to research your keywords and to outsource EVERY LITTLE THING.
Failure to do either would ensure you did not succeed.
Thankfully, he went into great detail on his niche research techniques and I was able to build a system to allow me to find niches fairly easily. Join my mailing list, and I’ll share it with you.
He also explained how to build a management system to allow one to handle a portfolio of 235 sites (he is now over 500 sites at an average of $4/day per site in profit).
Having been the CEO of my own company before getting into IM (I sold the company in 2008 – www.dyrandsystems.com), I am keenly aware of the importance of having management systems in place.
Management Systems Will Set You Free
If you don’t outsource, getting past 20 sites will be virtually impossible. In fact, I don’t think I could have even got to 20 sites without my VAs.
My time is now spent doing niche research and looking at my analytics. Virtually everything else is handled by my team of VA’s. Everything else includes:
- site launch, theme update, plugin config, etc…
- article writing (find writers on fiverr.com)
- article spinning
- getting backlinks (I use 4 different methods – all run by software and VA’s)
- content publishing
My VA Team
I’ve now gotten to the point where I use more than one VA and I have each VA specialize in a certain set of tasks (one VA for backlinking and social bookmarking, one VA for siteÂ maintenance, one VA for site launch, etc…) and I have one Sr VA manage all the other VA’s.
Leverage comes from building systems and then training your people to run those systems. Doing it all yourself will guarantee you only one thing: BURNOUT.
Want to get a copy of my site launch instructions that my VA uses to launch 5 sites a week? Its free. Just joing my mailing list and you’ll have it in seconds.
Want a copy of the detailed notes that I took from the 14 page long thread? That’s free, too. Just join my mailing list.
