Some time ago I came across a post on the Warrior forum that outlined how a guy built a portfolio 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 site 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.

Your comments are always welcome. Please share this post if you found it helpful.

Thanks!

    Good post, I just signed up for your newsletter as am interested in this approach.

    I have sort of tried this approach (lots of little sites) for the last two years but have done it manually mostly on my own so I do think there is something in it.

    How much are you making so far from this method?

    • Trent

      All my sites are 60 days old and newer so the income is not yet meaningful. Probably a few hundred so far. What is meaningful is that the site’s are climbing the SERPs every week (from my backlinking strategies) and when they get into the top 3, the income will become meaningful. What is also interesting is that I get sales for items that I never even promoted! There is nothing quite as fun as waking up and seeing that you made sales last night.

    Great Post!!!

    Th skill of outsourcing is the most powerful to me.
    I outsource EVERYTHING I do.

    But I also provide information to those who do not have money to spend on outsourcing.

    Hey Trent, I joined your mailing list. Waiting on those notes from that WF thread!

    Cheers,

    I’ve read your VA notes 3 or 4 times and they are a fantastic giveaway. They would be fantastic even if I had paid for them! One thing that bothers me is the creation of a “character”. Where do you get royalty free, usable pictures of your characters which you can rename, without the worry of any comeback further down the line? Could the person come back and say “Hey, that’s my picture on your website, and I’m going to sue your ass !”?

    • Trent

      Hi Gerry, I just use a picture of me. Failing your desire to do that, you can google for royalty free stock photos. Glad you liked my notes, feel free to send me as large a payment as you wish :P

      Tom,

      That is a very old post, and since the latest Google Panda/Penguin update, the model of building lots of little site no longer works. What does work is building authority sites, and if you go to onlineincomelab.com/nextwebinar, you can sign up for a free webinar to learn how to do it.
