    Ive been on BlackHatWorld for sometime, so I thought I'ld share a Method. Its a twist on an old idea, giving something away for free and earning some money recurringly.


    Aim:
    To make money giving away Free Websites to Local/Small Businesses and selling Ad Space.

    Tools:
    Wordpress and Hosting.

    1 - Start by doing a Go.o.gle search on Local/Small Businesses in your Area, its location and what industry they service. List this down and Go.o.gle search the Business and see if they have a Website and then list down those that do and those that don't.

    e.g. Smith's Dental Care- London (Camden) - Dentist - DO NOT HAVE Website
    Kevin and Sons Lawyers - New York (Brooklyn) - Lawyers - DO HAVE Website

    2 - Go to Go.Da.Da.dy and by EMD (Exact Match Domain) that has the location and Job type in the address.

    e.g. DentistInCamdenLondon.com
    LawyersInBrooklynNewYork.com

    3 - Buy a Domain for a made up Business related to each specific Job Type.

    e.g. InfinityEstateAgents.com
    FloristInRichmondCalifornia.com

    4 - Get cheap hosting, and install Wordpress with SEO Plugins and a Professional theme related to the Job type.

    5 - Create a feature rich Website and write some good quality Articles, 10-20, related to the Job Type and Location. SEO the Website and optimise for the Job Type and Location (Step 2) Also Install Google Analytics

    6 - Create a feature rich Website and write some Articles related to that made up Business (Step 3). Make it look Professional. Wordpress is easy to use and you can make Professional looking websites in no time. Just pick the right theme, with pictures of a fictional Business and dummy data.

    7 - Depending on how well you've SEO'ed your Website to the Job Type and Location, you should be seeing some traffic after a Month or so. Print out a Go.o.gle Analytics report, as well as the Traffic Data in your cPanel.

    8 - Write a speculative letter to the Local/Small Businesses that have DO NOT HAVE Websites, saying that you make Free Professional Websites for Businesses and that you would like to make them a Website. Most Businesses will reply saying that their interested and would like to meet you. Also post adverts on Gumtree, CraigList and other Classifieds offering free Websites.


    9 - Go to the meeting armed with a Portfolio of the Websites for fake Businesses that you created, show the Manager and tell them they're sample Websites that you've made for free for other Businesses. Mention to the Manager that hosting the Website will cost a small fee though and that for the fee also they'll get free support and updates for something like $25 a Month. Inform them that all Businesses need a Website, Online Presence, upsell the benefits of having a Business Website. They'll all mostly agree to the Hosting Fee.

    Website (e.g. InfinityEstatesAgents.com) will take less than a day to make since you need to add company information, pictures, etc. Hosting a website is cheap.

    Monthly recurring fee is $25 a month per Business.

    Rinse and Repeat for other Businesses.

    9 - Write a speculative letter to Local/Small Businesses that DO HAVE Websites, saying that you currently have a Website that is receiving 100's of people looking for services that they provide in the areas that their located and that you would be interested in forwarding them to their Business. Most Managers will reply back saying their interested and will want to meet you.

    Go to the meeting armed with your Go.o.gle Analytics and cPanel Traffic Charts (Step 6) show this at the meeting and inform the Manager that you sell Ad Spaces on your Website and that they could potentially be having 100's of customers walking through their door each month. Upsell the idea. (100's of customers) X (a simple check-up, e.g. Dentist) = a lot of money for that Business. Discuss rates, say $100 per month for a Banner on the website. This service can also be offered to the Local/Small Businesses that have DO NOT Websites.

    Website (e.g. DentistInCamdenLondon.com ) will take less than a Day to make and hosting it is cheap.

    Monthly recurring fee is $100 a month per Banner.

    Rinse and Repeat for other Businesses.

    Long Tail EMD's Domains and Localised Searches means we can rank for those keywords in the Domain. Start-up cost is low and with the ability to scale this to numerous Counties, Cities and Niches, the potential for a lot of recurring income is huge.

    I was having problems posting threads so I made a test to see if it'll work, and it did, so I edited it and posted the Method. The problem was I had a link so the thread wouldnt post and just came up with PHP Errors.

    It would be cheaper getting VPS Hosting since you'll be hosting multiple websites rather than individual hosting plans for the sites.

    Wordpress doesnt use a lot of resources and you can make professional looking websites by using one of the Themes easily. The goal is to come across as professional as possible and not look like a fresh noob. This way you instill confidence in your abilities and recieve trust from the Managers.

    Another twist could be to create flyers saying you make free websites for people, websites such as Blogs, Social Networks, Business Sites, E-Commerce etc You can easily find free scripts for these and knock out a good looking site in less than a day. Go around to Supermarket Car parks and put these on the wind shields of the general public. You'll get responses asking for you to make free websites and then you hit them with the small hosting fee.

    Thats true, but since were targetting one key word with the EMD, it would be easier. Were going after local searches for select areas, rather than whole cities.

    Yes it may take time, but onces your ranked then its all good. You wouldnt just buy one website, you'ld buy at least 10 .com's and SEO them to rank.

    Theres the posibility of selling SEO Packages to the clients as well as hosting. Any modifications to the Website would also incur a fee which you could set out.

    It's actually not a bad idea if your using EMD domains.

    Yep, as long as you get the EMD you can rank for that specific keyword! With so many cities and niches to target theres enough for everyone!

    Another way to attract customers is to make flyers offering free websites, use photoshop and make it really attractive and professional. Go to a car park and stick them on the windshields, depending on how many you've given out, you'll get loads of responses back!
