    Hey,

    I currently have a blog I invested $600 in, it was my first blog, and it is now set to run posting new content every day for a year.

    I want to start on my next one, and am hoping to have an initial investment of $1500.

    I plan to use this money to buy:
    100 * $5 articles - price: $500
    1 * $100 SEO tools - price: $100
    1 * $500 computer - price: $500 (my current computer is garbage)
    100 * $1 photos - price: $100
    SEO from BHW spending about: $300
    total: $1500

    then oc there is the $10 domain, etc.

    Just wondering what ppl here think of this plan.

    I am hoping that within three months the site can make 1k+ a month.

    I assume the $300 in BHW services will be used for backlinking etc.?

    For the articles, I suggest you go to freelancer for cheaper price. 1 article = 2.50$, good quality as well. You need to find the best copywriter for that in freelancer that already have thousands or hundreds of review. I found few copywriters until I found the best one in freelancer. I have ordered nearly 200 articles there and they are ranking great on search engine and quality articles too.

    For the SEO, I suggest you buy from Leith (Member here) Search on BST section Yeeha SEO. That's the best seo services here and tons of reviews and proofs.

    Hope that help :)

    Well, my first blog is 6 months old, making $100 a month, and I wasted a lot of money cuz in all honesty I had no clue what I was doing at first.

    I think if i put all my money to proper use with this one I can bring it to $30-$35 a day which is about $1k a month.

    Thanks for the service offers, I will be sure to check out the suggestions above.

    $1500 seems a big budget for a niche blog. I kindly advise you to check buy/sell threads. There, reputed members sells micro niche blogs for around $50. Go and buy 2-3 of them. Gain some experience.

    If you want to make money with Adsense, I will suggest you to post those 100 articles over 6 months. Also a lot of investment might be required on SEO as well.

    I am planing on posting the first 100 in one month at about three a day. After that I will change it to maybe one a day for a couple months, then one every couple days.

    ATM I budgeted $300 to buy stuff from BHW, and $100 for my own SEO tool so I can build links myself as well.

    This will be all for the first month. I am earning from my other blogs, so if it takes some time for the money from this to be made back that is ok.

    I am also planning on getting a lot of traffic from sites like tumblr, twitter, and facebook which I will be building with the website.

    ppc adnetworks would give you a nice ban from google...

    Traffic that is not organic is almost useless.

    That's the way to do it! 3 articles / day + 1 month of dripped backlinks for each article.

    Sounds good but personally I wouldn't lay out $1500 right up front. Maybe try to get it earning so that some of those initial earnings can pay for the blog business needs.
