    Alright, so I have been looking into micro niche websites for a very long time now. Previously, I had bought some from Flippa (already established / making $ micro niche websites) and then I kept them for some time and sold them.

    So the point is, I have experience with MN websites, but I have never really gone through the whole process of doing KW research, adding articles, on-page SEO, off-page / linkbuilding, etc. But I want to start.

    And I have been debating for a long time: do I buy from one of the services offered here that have packages like 5 MN websites, 10 MN websites, etc....or do I buy a tool for keyword research, then get the articles written myself (iWriter, or services here) and go from there?

    I know it's really a personal decision, and if I'm willing to do the work etc...so yeah, I AM willing to do the work - it's just that I want to go in the path that I will:
    1 - Learn faster, more and become better at learning about MN websites
    2 - Make money soon enough (and my investment won't go waste. I know I'll learn regardless, so won't really be 'waste', but I'd still like to pursue a path where I can get my money back soon enough).

    Any advice would be great. How did you guys start? What would you recommend? And if you recommend a keyword tool (vs the path of just buying premade MN websites), which one do you think is a good starting point?

    1st post and you are talking about taking action... you are to be commended.

    Many dance around the work aspect of making money online because they consider it some sort of geenie in a bottle idea.

    I've been around bhw for a while, just one of those guys that read a lot and not take much action...and I want to get past that stage! These days I feel motivated enough to go ahead and start taking action, and I've been doing KW research to the best of my ability, but I was feeling a bit blocked / slow progress hence seeking advice of fellow BHW members!

    I agree, but tons can a lot of times be way too overwhelming! I just want someone's opinion on if it's a better idea for someone at my experience (as described in first post) to purchase a MN package or try the whole process myself? Which way will I learn more ? I mean yes, doing it myself would be "better", but if I select the wrong keyword and don't get ranked...at the end I will just feel I went the wrong path to begin with. So what's a good start?

    Depend.

    I can say it depends on your pocket. As for me, i bought a package at first. Buy standard package, always monitor on what seller does to your mns.
    Start from kw research, Adding content, established a site, the last is building BL. After there is a progress there, like increasing traffing, serp, and profit, you can start copying seller method buy yourself. And the plus one, the seller offer lifetime support. This your key, use this support to built your own mns.

    That the great method, because if you start doing by yourself first, than you don't have a real success sample, 50% you'll end loss at all.

    But, if you have low pocket, you can start it all by yourself. Read all the journey and case study as an advice.

    I think whether or not you choose to outsource/buy sites you still have to have a good understanding of SEO and MNS in general. So that being said you still need to learn and should just spend a lot of time at least initially reading the forums.

    Even if you have the cash, you need to be sure that you are spending it on things that are worth while.

    So I guess the answer is "both".

    My personal advice on MNS...

    Don't buy a full site. You are going to end up with something pretty generic and there will be a lot of other sites out there with the same blueprints. Instead, make a few sites completely by yourself. Once you know what it takes, outsource certain parts of the work, not all of it. This gives you more control.

    You can buy keywords, articles, and SEO from here.

    This is only my recommendation though. There are people banking simply from buying MNS packages and getting the cash flowing in.

    simply put: get busy

    if you haven't started yet narrow down your first method. i always recommend getting your hands dirty at first instead of trying to outsource everything so you understand the scope of work

    once you have a good understanding of what you need to do identify what needs to be purchased to get running. once identified, buy it and start learning it. keep learning it until you start to build up a good visualization of what you need to do to

    figure out your first campaign and do it. analyze it once it's finished and create the next campaign

    lather, rinse, repeat until you find something that works

    Since you already have some experience in MN sites, I would highly recommend investing in quality tools and spend the time to learn efficient techniques in their usage. You already sound like you're quite willing to take the time to get yourself acquainted with these tools. Whether you create your own MN site from scratch or you purchase a package(often generic and/or heavily competed against), you will still want a firm understanding of these tools and their proper implementation.

    Take an example...a car for instance. If we relate it to the IM industry and making $, let's just say we want to drive fast and look good in it. Sure, you can buy a car that is pretty fast or really fast, or really slow but unless you are willing to work on it with the right tools and understand how each one will make that car reach your intended goal, you will just sell the car (or in your case, the MN site). With good working knowledge of these tools, you can build a faster car...whether you start from the ground up or buy one first.

    If your biggest concern is time investment and getting "up and running" quickly, there are excellent strategies discussed in the forums to help job out certain tasks. Also, there is a wealth of knowledge as to which tools work well for most people and are easy to use. Many of these tools will be efficient enough to shave countless hours off a MN site project even allowing for you to run multiple campaigns simultaneously without being overwhelmed.

    This isn't just making money online, people want a quick fix to life in general. All these get rich quick schemes work online and offline for one reason only. Quick without doing anything.

    Are you fat? Take this pill. Oh you have anxiety, take this medication. You want to get rich quick? No worries, take this course.

    In reality, if your fat, you need to work your ass off to lose that weight with a strict diet and a strict workout plan. You have anxiety you need to work on the things causing it (I know from firsthand) and this takes time and hard work. Want to make a lot of money there is no method to make money (at least someone elses method). Creating your own method is where you will be successful and no one can tell you how this works.

    Be prepared to sacrifice a lot. Patience is underrated. Be more persistent then you ever thought imagineable. Just when you think you have succeeded be prepared to have that hope snatched right before your eyes. Honestly, not everyone does it for a reason and it is not as glamourous as people make it out to be. But, in the end of the day I would die for this life.

    Begin the journey of failing and failing and when you think you have failed enough, think again and fail some more. Finally, something will stick and you will succeed. Its the universe's way of weeding out the people that don't want it bad enough.

    Take your pick :)

    I think the best thing you can do is learn & actually "BUILD" your own wordpress site. Understanding how to do this allows you to be so much more flexible & gives you the ability to really open the doors to your earning potential.

    Wordpress has tons of plug-ins for micro niche sites. It took me a month of actually studying and building on wordpress but now I fly through the process & can pick new domains all the time and have a site up running, looking good & indexed in 24 to 48 hours.

    Message me if you want specific advice.

    In the sandbox. Again.
    Some people are better at starting businesses. Some are better at growing businesses. Determine which you would excel at and then you will know if you should start sites or build existing sites.
