Got Your Attention? I previously had a thread on BHW, but the whole thing just fell apart. I got busy with writing and other things in life. I've recently been looking at my life in marketing and looking where I have had the most success. For me it has always been in the adult industry. A while back I had been doing OK, but my main method of traffic got shut down. I threw my hands up in the air and just gave up on adult and moved on. That was a big mistake. I began working on a few of the Amazon websites I had, and they just got hit with this "PBN algorithm" the other day. While I had put a lot of research into my sites and never did any manually linking all of my sites got hit. This taught me more than anything I have to really diversify my income. Being adult was the easiest for me, I have decided to refocus my energies. I have several things going on, and I want to document each. I had thought about doing a separate thread for everything, but assumed that would be redundant and annoying. So I will try to break things down into bite size chunks. I have three areas that I want to work on. Adult Sites Amazon Sites Freelance Writing Adult Sites I am focusing on adult sites, because quite frankly they are easy and can be created quite quickly. I have a bunch of adult affiliate accounts, and I am putting them all to the side and focusing on just one, CrakRevenue. I have worked with these guys for awhile and I just genuinely like them. I talked with Eric from Crak this evening for some general advice, and he was really helpful. So let's take a look at what I have to use first. 7 Adult Themed Domains 3 Adult Facebook Pages 2 Adult Tumblr's 3 Unused Female PVA accounts PR Traffic (Tumblr Software) Primary Goals For The Week (9-23/9-29) 10 Likes Per Page Per Day On All Three Accounts Queue up at least 10 posts Per Day For Both Tumblr Accounts There is no monetary goal at this point. I just want to focus on getting my projects done. As you can see I am keeping the goals very simple and achievable for this week. At this point in time I am not monetizing anything. I am just looking to gain fans and visitors. I am more focused with Facebook at this point, once I have at least 1,000 fans I will start to promote my websites. I am also being more selective with the content that I post. When I talked with Eric last night, I had explained my prior concerns dealing with amateur selfies and content in general. I simply do not want to put myself at risk for a lawsuit. So I am making sure I have an easy to find DMCA page on all my sites. Does this take me out of harms way...no. But I would assume as long as I am diligent and remove pictures promptly, I should be OK. I am going to stay in close contact with CrakRevenue to make sure my leads are converting on their end. So as you can see, the adult part is all slow and steady. Amazon Sites Over the years I have had some success with Amazon, and still do OK. However, it is nothing to write home about. Most months are around 25.00 in commissions. I got so tired of waiting on commission checks I switched over to gift cards. So every month my kids know they are going to get something from Amazon. While I love seeing them happy over those smiley face boxes, I want to increase my sales. So how am I going to do that? It is time to step up and start building more sites. Once again lets see what I have available: 6 Amazon Domains Primary Goals For The Week (9-23/9-29) Do keyword research for one of the empty domains I have Find 20 Low Competition Non Buyer Keywords Create A Basic Silo Structured Site Write 20 Informative Posts Create Basic Social Media Accounts Overall Goal 52 Informative and Helpful Amazon Sites By The End Of The Year As you can see, even though this is going to be an Amazon site, I am creating it as an information site. All I will be creating is information posts. I will take into account products while I create the silo. However, with everyone getting de-indexed, again I am just going to take this slow. I want to do one of these sites every week. I know that is going to take some dedication and more than anything else planning. As this journey continues I am sure we will find ways to optimize the workload. I am not going to worry about Google this time around. While I will be working from an SEO standpoint, I want to create fun and interesting content to share via social media. However, I have no plans to create any major content this week for that purpose. Freelance Writing While my two other objectives are focused, they do not bring money in on a daily basis. And I like seeing money everyday, one of the reasons I began to do freelance writing. I had even done a freebie here on BHW, to just get some practice in. While I do not want my writing to take up my whole day, I am looking for a way to bring in a positive cash flow. Not only will this help with day to day expenses, but I can use it to invest in a few tools I have been looking at. So what do I have at my disposal: Fiverr Account Personal Freelance Writing Site Primary Goals For The Week (9-23/9-29) Write up basic content so my personal site can go live Write six sample pieces of content for that site Overall Goal I would like to be doing about 5 articles a day. Honestly, I don't have a clear vision for this objective. Eventually I would like to ween myself off Fiverr and just sell through my website. That is the plan in a pretty big nutshell. If you have read through, I appreciate it! This thread is probably more for my own benefit than anyone else. I'm sure there are going to be setbacks and pitfalls along the way. But we'll get past them. I will do my best to update this thread daily and answer any questions that come along. If I am doing something wrong or it could be done better, let me know. I will update this thread at least weekly, every Monday. I hope what I have written above makes sense. I do realize it is not the best to spread yourself so thin. I am going with the idea of "Go Big or Go Home!" The goals will become bigger as the weeks go by, so stick with me!
