    It's amazing how a Business Blog that looks exactly like a website can be the turn-around that you are looking for.

    I built a little company called CustomBlogForFree dot com where I offer to set up and optimize simple Thesis blogs for free to anyone who signs up through me for a Thesis theme (my affiliate link) or who buys their domain hosting (Hostmonster) through my affiliate link. It's doing very well. I also offer to write web content, etc on my site. I do have some solid customers already and a Twitter following of almost 9 thousand now. Things are going very well.

    For those individuals who want to do things for themselves instead of rely on others to build their niche blogs, I've come up with a live webinar which I'm holding on June 9th (Tuesday) at 6:30pm. It will be step by step, live from my desktop, showing how to set up a WP blog on your c-panel, how to SEO optimize, what plugins to install and how to do it...WHEW! That's a lot of info. The seminar will last approx 1.5 hours.

    Wanted to give you guys a heads up since I know that a lot of you need your own dot com domain blog but just haven't learned how to do it yet. I built the blog you see at Custom Blog for Free in less than 24 hours and I can show you how to do this over and over again to build niche websites for your writing portfolios, to sell memberships, eBooks, Clickbank fodder, affiliate merchandize, dating sites, classes or whatever you'd like.

    Check out the article on my site that gives the details of the details of the webinar. It's right on the home page.

    Hop on board the "building blogs" train and join the inner circle of those who have the skills that others are looking for. With the way the economy is going, ppl are starting home businesses every day. Instead of competing against them, I've decided to service this growing niche of people by building their mini niche website for them. You can either do this as well, or you can use the info to build yourself a ton of sites.

    Anyhow, it's a great idea and a great opportunity. Wanted to offer it to my friends on here....

    Have an awesome weekend!

    Hi Robinana,

    I took a peak at your site and portfolio. Nice job! The sites look great. I've been thinking of doing something similar-my only hold up is figuring out my own blogs first. I've started with 17 autoblogs (my first venture) and I'm still tweeking themes and layout.

    Is it fairly easy to get clients for this type of biz? Does it seem profitable?

    Do you just do simple sites? ie-like a five page site?

    I'm afraid (for me) that a client would ask something difficult regarding a theme and I would get hung up and lose my sale.
    Looking forward to answers.

    Deanna

    A couple more questions,

    I've looked at several other businesses that are doing the same thing and their portfolios.

    How does everybody get the cool graphics in the headers of the blog.I'm sure if I was to do a biz like this that I would need to know how to do this.

    And then do you do the keyword research for your clients blog?

    I'm thinking of add-on services for fee, such as social bookmarking and keyword research, seo, etc.

    Any ideas on this?

    Deanna

    I have a lot of photoshop experience so i can do headers fairly easily. If you are serious about starting this type of business, your best bet is to work with one theme only. I only do thesis..... I mean, I will install other themes for people but it's up to them to figure the thing out. I'm not going to dick with every single theme out there.

    If the person buys web hosting from you and the thesis theme, you get 50 bucks from the thesis sale and 65 from hostmonster. for 100 dollars i am perfectly willing to put someones blog together....headers and articles are EXTRA. all you are doing is installing the blog because most ppl don't know what to do in their c panel to install wordpress or to install the theme or plugins. You should take my course this tuesday to see what i offer on the blogs i do for people. it is easy.

    if you don't want to take the course cuz you already know how to build blogs, that is cool, but you should go ahead and offer to build blogs for ppl and if you run into trouble, then just get help. Let's say you don't offer headers.... I can partner with you and do your header for 20 dollars. Charge your client 30 and you're all set. You really have to be proficient with photoshop to do headers. But you don't have to tell your client you are outsourcing the work. It's just brokering and it's easy. I broker some of my article writing, etc.

    I'm working on vital being dot ORG today. The header is kind of the same style type as the other one, but different colors, etc. But it will give you the idea if you want to check it out. I'd be happy to partner with you, or what i mean is....I will be happy to be your "go to" person for work that is beyond your capabilities. in the mean time you'll be making money and learning to do it for yourself!

    my email is partnershipmktg at aol so let me know if you want to talk..... I know all about keyword optimization, seo, metatagging, pinging without getting banned, etc.

    You can even call me if you get stuck. When I send you a return email, my phone number is in my signature. I like to help ppl get started and I'm not a scammer and I really don't want anything from anyone..... I like to see ppl winning in today's suck economy.
    Oh, and on twitter I'm robinana ..... Talk to you soon!

    Wow, this is the exact same thing I was about to start on this week. Huge market for it if you advertise well. Good luck with your business and perhaps you will see some competition from me?
