Before I get into the how, I would to share the why. I work a 9 - 5 and make good money. Problem is, I am not exactly a fan of the job. I have some skills. I was a writer for a once well known Gaming website and have written a few kindle books. Additionally, I run a website and business for a specific niche which is hard to emerge into. After spending a lot of money learning SEO and website building, making a lot of mistakes, I figured a lot of this out. I learned a lot from my failures. My primary website is not a business model which makes a lot of money up front. It is more of a passion site for me and my team and we are not exactly making money. Although I will continue with this project, I have learned more about what to do right if I did it again. Content was never a problem. Budget is what ever it takes to start earning. My primary business model is: 1. Kindle Books and eBooks to build an email list. 2. SEO to get users to the free offer. 3. Build relationship and trust. 4. Sell expensive coaching. Straight forward, makes us good money when we get clients, but it takes a LOT of work. The private coaching takes hours in a large block which I frankly do not have. So that brought me to making additional sources of revenue. I already figured out the whole Kindle marketing thing, by trial and error. I made decent money but my niche is purely informational. And a lot of the content can be found in some extent for free. Thus I have a problem with my business model. People often will not pay for something if they can get it for free. Plus my industry has authorities which are well trusted and make a bulk of the money. That brings me to how I plan to make 2K a month. Off of Authority sites. I plan on building THREE authority sites and have them to a decent size within six months. I will also support these three sites with three feeder micro niche sites. The goal of the micro niche sites is to give me some income while I work on these projects so I do not may out of pocket as I did with my passion site. So far I have: Three Authority Sites in the works. Three Micro Niche Sites in the works. Some Black Hat tools to put a few links to the sites. A bunch of KW research done. Hosting. Domains purchased. Six months training on 'what not to do'. The ability to spew content. After doing research on what I am good at, and what I am not, I decided to play it smart. I will not spend hours trying and failing at what I cannot accomplish. I plan on doing what I can do well and excelling at it. That is content. For me to do 5x article a night with at least 500 words is not an issue. I plan on getting 5 articles per authority site a week up minimum, thus the point of an authority site. By six months, all three sites will have at least 120 articles centric mostly around KW's which are profitable. I do plan on some 'fluff' to make the site appear more natural and to interlink to other profitable and related KW's which will lead to more income. Money is a secondary thought for these sites. My link building strategy is simple: A couple High Authority links per authority site. A plethora of inter linking between articles within category/silo. Providing my existing sites to put my own ads on to funnel people to my other sites, which have good ranking already. Blast a few links (Low amount) of links to the high authority links to keep my site clean and provide some juice to my links. How I plan to earn money is to start with Adsense. I want to do this as White Hat as possible and Rank KW's off of site size and authority primarily. I will use secondary incomes streams such as Click Bank and Amazon if applicable to my niche and what traffic I get. If I am missing something, please let me know. I think I have this down to a good start. As of right now, content is king in my opinion for my type of site. I am looking for a long term revenue stream.
