I'm starting out on a process to build several amazon affiliate (primarily) based sites to generate a monthly net of $5k as a relatively passive income. The threads from Danny1111 and Lbrown have been very helpful in framing some of the ideas. The initial plan is to build several sample sites in various styles to see how they convert and interact. Danny1111 Style: More in-depth / helpful content style sites. Building 5 sites in different niches Lbrown Style: Smaller site that drives to amazon quickly. Building 5 sites in different niches. Authority Sites: Sites that have a broader focus around a subject. Building 3 sites in different niches Other experiments: Playing around with other ideas /variations. We may try other affiliate programs, different plugins, etc. 5 sites or so. I will play around with different means of promotion for each variant Where I'm at: I've purchased all of the domains. Some are EMD, some are not (obviously authority sites may not fit). I've purchased several themes and I am currently modifying these, building category structures, etc. Ordered logos, banners, etc from Fiverr for 3 of the sites Hosting is already setup. The plan is to roll out one of each of the four categories by the end of next week, learn from that process, and then deploy the remainder. After that it will be SEO, tweaking, and adjusting based on what we see. Once we figure out a solid plan and see what converts we'll scale from there.
