Hey everyone, I have been scraping through the forum for a few weeks now. After deciding that white had techniques were just too boring and slow (yet effective), I wanted to learn how to maximize my efficiency and income through my skills. My background consists of marketing/comm and a whole lotta web design consulting and freelance work. I use WordPress as my platform of choice. In the past month I set up about six blogs; ranging in nature from topics under the food, careers, iphone, and loan verticals. That's as specific as I'll be for now. Rolling out some autoblogs To crank out these sites I use WordPress, as mentioned, and an assortment of premium and free themes. I like the premium ones because they often include a nice theme options panel and some nice built in options/widgets. One premium theme I particularly like to use is "Gotham News" - from WT. Another good free one I like is "Milano". Once installed, it's time to upload the "core plugins": wp-robot autoblogged Xml sitemaps all in one seo pack statpress link cloaking plugin cpa redirector aff link manager easy contact related posts plugin I'm sure there are more that I add, but that's most of them. Next step involves putting them on some sort of autopilot. I use WP Robot and Autoblogged mostly, but wp-o-matic is very good as well. Every now and then I write or spin a good article that I find - just go to stumbleupon, Digg, or wherever and see what's topping the chart in your niche. Copy/paste, spin cycle; complete. Social Networks I registered a Twitter account for each site. I've looked at many of the twitter follow tools here but honestly I think I'll join flashtweet.c0m. I tried their demo and it worked awesome; it seems they integrated some great features to get TARGETED followers. They have an auto tweeting feature so I'll take the trial for a spin now that it's out of beta. Otherwise I need to get registered under each domain email at many more networks. Anyone have a good recommendation for a tool to mass register at social networks, and maybe even submit articles, all in one? The Affiliate Networks I'm writing this just minutes after the fifth affiliate network called, and approved me. Was pretty easy stuff, and these were the bigger ones; ones that told me they accept 5% of applicants . I told them about my sites and the usual stuff about organic search, seo optimization in WP, article marketing, social networking to drive traffic. I had a few generic pitches/campaigns to attach to the sites. I told most of them I had less than six months of IM experience. Nobody threw any curves really...just gotta be assertive and know what you're talking about...or sound like it. :tee: The "free" or extremely low priced website promo This method has been covered here as well. I've implemented the $99 blog promotion, with an affiliate offer that the customer needs to go through in Dreamhost. With an abundance of templates, and some on and offline marketing, I'm sure I can get some leads and crank out more than a few of these cookie-cutter sites. I've got a lot of ideas brewing, and will use this as a sort of journal of the progress and to bounce ideas around with people. I need a good automailer, email scraper, proxies, and so much more. Regardless, I'm pleased that within a week of deciding to move forward with this, I've been accepted in to the networks, have a few simple campaigns up (no conversions yet ), the website business model, and a good foundation. So thanks everyone out there who posts kick ass shit to feed my brain. Now I'm going to relax and rip some tubes to feed my lungs.
