My experience in making money online started in 2003 with a non-profitable niche. Inmate Pen Pals...yup really, but it was fun making some extra cash on the side with no work using Adsense. I have since then off and on trying to duplicate that or try affiliate marketing or micro niche sites or creating my own eBooks and products. Right now I want to see some success however small it can be... a $100 day or a $1,000 month would be awesome to me. Especially, if it can be sustained. I use Wordpress mostly for some blogs and small niche sites and know my way around editing ASP, HTML, PHP and CSS. I've RESEARCHED alot of strategies and information for internet marketing etc. Now I need ...or atleast want some help. I am not a NOOB by any means and I don't mind having a budget of $500 to make $1,000 in a couple of weeks... ...or a budget of $10,000 if it is something that can produce a sustainable site(s) making $10,000 a year. Just need some direction... Broad info is good for me because I usually can figure out the details, but need help with discerning what is worth spending money on and what is not. Some Accomplishments: - My latest blog is 3 months old, but I am an 'expert' in the niche and it gets 2,000 unique visitors and 8,000 page views with a 41 page PR3 site. - I ranked my dad's local brick and mortar business website for several relevant keywords which gets him 1-2 spots on 1st page and 2-4 spots on the second page. So now what? How can I find or do that one thing I've been missing or not 'getting'? I am pretty sure it has to do with backlinking for search position rank and writing good content, which I know I can farm out, but once again... where is my money best spent? Ideas?
