Hello World, BHW has been helpful to me, maybe my journey will spark ideas for you. Case Study: Can I make a profit following the Project 24 method found at IncomeSchool.com? It is a 60 step process and eludes to being able to replace your full-time job in 24 months. Background: I have been blogging for over ten years but only dabbling. I am familiar with Blogger and WP. I have coded in HTML, PHP, CSS, C++, ...and I'm so old I cut my teeth on Basic, Fortran, and Cobol. This is my first attempt to get serious with blogging in hopes of replacing my 9-5 job. Timeline: April: Establish niche site #1, complete Steps 1-21 of Project 24 May: Complete Steps 22-40 June: Complete Steps 41-60 July: Establish niche site #2, complete Steps 1-21 Aug: Complete Steps 22-40 Sept: Complete Steps 41-60 Month 1 - April 2019 Steps 1-20 include the following: Watch the video on what it is all about Choose your topic and domain Sign up for hosting Get a logo Themes and Plugins WordPress settings, SEO Watch video: No Nonsense SEO Create an Article Hit List Watch video: Formatting posts Write first Response Post Write second... Write third... Write fourth... Write fifth... Write sixth... Write seventh... Write eighth... Write nineth Write tenth... Add legal content blurb Resizing images Niche Ideas (steps 1-7) I watched the video. Pretty much the same stuff that is on their YT channel. It was very difficult for me to decide on a niche. There is a list from Income School that you can download from their site and it contains dozens of ideas. My first question was "how many are still good if you've been giving this list out for a while?" So I continued until I found my own. My advice: if you can't decide on a niche, go with what you know. I won't divulge mine but let's just say if I was a plumber... I would create a blog about the plumbing profession. I used good old FlamingText.com to create a temporary logo. I used a nulled theme of Divi from Elegant Themes found here on BHW until I got to a point where the functionality was broken due to needing an update. Of course, you can't update a nulled theme so I dropped around $80 for an annual subscription to Elegant Themes. Helpful Hint: To learn Divi like a boss, watch Ferdy Korp's 3+ hour tutorial. Domain Name and Hosting So I picked a domain name with the words of my profession in it. Example: TheCertifiedPlumber.com or something like that. I went with BlueHost for hosting as suggested by Income School. I bought the annual hosting package for $80 and it came with the domain name free. I set up Word Press and began creating content. Article Hit List The Income School guys teach this on their YouTube channel as well. You basically search Google for your niche word and see what Google shows as the common questions around that search. Using their method, I came up with about ten article topics to write about. Writing 10 Response Posts Knocking these out took me a little over a week. I work full-time and have a large family so I did these mostly at night after everyone had gone to bed. Many nights I stayed up until 2 or 3 am to get the posts done. I started the whole process mid-April and was able to finish with the 10 Response Posts by May 1st. Resizing the Images I actually didn't want to do this due to monotony. I skipped it and moved on to the next month's tasks. Stats: I saw no traffic this month and didn't even have a hit counter or analytics installed. Project 24 says you won't see your first $5 until month SIX of the process. I was content just blogging my brains out for April. [Sneak Peek, I'm six weeks in and seeing traffic and income. Nothing great, mind you but it is starting and way ahead of the projected plan. ] Family duties call. I'll continue with what I did in May with some screenshots as soon as I get more free time. Thanks for reading.
