    Hello everyone, I am deadsoul1, I am an old member here but was not active for most of the times. Lately, because I got into easy phase with my day job and have new set of priorities in life, I have decided to reboot the web inventory I am having and monetizing it properly so that after 6 months (putting a dot here) I will be in position to bag around $3K-$4K per month from my sites/inventory. This thread will be basically for tracking the developments on 1st goal primarily as it is the short term goal and there will be updates on Goal 2/3 also, but very less frequent as they are long term goals.

    Background : I work in IT sector (datacenter and servers), I had few websites (all authority and indexed, all whitehat so far). I have flipped couple of good websites few years ago, but lately scenario (flipping) has changed and has got saturtaed. My main sources of earnings were hosting affiliate sales, adsense, chitika and link sales

    Things I am aware of : I have couple of guys over here and with team I am capable of designing new wordpress/magento/opencart/joomla themes, custom development, I do have SEO guy (not very good), I do have content writer. Personally I am bit of most of things. I mean I have good understanding and knowledge of ins and outs of many things but I still prefer getting work done from my hired resources, so that I can keep time for my family, job and planning and executing things which were planned.

    Roadmap/Goals :
    1. I do have couple of good websites which are aged and have lots of content, they generate few adsense bucks every month. I am going to start the testing of plan on 1 website first and if it works ill move forward with doing the same with other websites. So basically I am going to replace adsense with chitika on one site and will use Jon's traffic to monetize and earn from site. I am going to start today.
    Service used : http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...et-your-google-organic-traffic-instantly.html

    Target - Things do depend on Jon's traffic , still I am hoping for $30 a day with this method. I am getting another site up in same niche so that if I flip the money making site, I am left with backup option, which can be run in same fashion.

    2. My day job lets me learn a lot of things around business and data center and I do have an idea of starting an authority site in same niche. Average CPC for few keywords is as high as $25 and overall average cpc is in range of $5-$10 (high competition though). I already have one 2 years old PR 1 domain on which I started site and then let it age. I am going to use the same domain to start the site and turn it into authority portal.
    Target - Get ranked for majority of keywords and then monetize the site. Target is to attain 500 visitors per day in 2 months which I guess is very realistic. Between I am making the first authority site (in rebooted world its my first authority site) as 60% news around industry which will tap in trending traffic and 40% as reviews, guides and generic keyword centric articles. So after 1 week of initial 1 post per day, I will start making 3-5 posts per day (setting up google alerts from news sites in my niche).

    3. PHP/Ruby on Rails SAS portal : I have started working on blueprint of a SAS (software as service) script related to social marketing, I know it gonna take 2-2.5 months to create , test, market it (I am stuck between PHP and Ruby as coding language :-( ). But as my client list is good, I am sure I will be having some 30+ launch clients for the service, with $19/Month as base price.

    Target - Get the idea up and running and start making $500 + per month 5th month onwards.

    4. Kindle : I just got 2 ebooks written after niche research. Both books are non-fictional and my plan is to get 10 ebooks published. If the setup makes some money, let it run and scale it up. If it is not making expected returns, Ill just flip it to a local publishing house to recover setup cost + some profit (as I will be giving up rights to 10 ebooks)

    What is the purpose of this thread? - To AVOID PROCRASTINATION . I am already running 2 months late, now I just wish to get started and get it done. This thread for me is just a journal where I am sharing the work I am doing towards my goals and track the overall progress.

    What you will get out of this journey? - It is not just a thread to follow. Knowing a plan and working on a plan and converting that plan to money making entity motivates everyone. I do have some other business models valid for offline business and I know even for online business above goals are not very lucrative ones, still I will be working on a business model where the end goal is to earn money. Isn't it the same thing as what we are doing? Lots of twists and methods on monetization, flipping, Kindle etc etc which be published and discussed here.

    Any Request from my side? - No one likes negative comments (negative but constructive critisism is welcome), I have taken out time and have started this journey thread. If all you wish to do is to steal the thread or to fill it up with negative things, please stay off. However, if motive is same, please sub, comment, share information etc etc, in short, do whatever you feel is good for thread and community.

    Once I am in position to reach and carry forward the above goals, I do have another list of next ideas which I will be covering later on.

    How frequently will I be updating the thread : Whenever there is any progress!!!

    Lets start this journey then and share/learn together :)

    No, but I might get into it in the future.
