Hey! Good to be back on BHW.

Aim: Grow my new portfolio to 1Million per month ASAP (in 2024)

Past: I with my partners and team has made sites that are doing more than 2 Million a month. So i have the experience needed to get to the goal, 2024 is new and will be fun. You have to think differently when you're doing SEO, or whatever. You need to figure out where your audience is and how you can get them to buy your products.

Currently i am starting with 3 sites in this portfolio. Will talk about them 80% of the time, i also have other businesses which includes Crypto VC, and backlink building.

screenshot-app.metorik.com-2024.01.01-23_23_51.png

I have not set the values on metorik properly, and this would be gross margin instead of profit. This doesn't include marketing expenses, just operational costs. I like to build very profitable businesses with 50%+ EBIDTA (Difficult sometimes).

Site1: Selling propular products
Site2: Supplement Brand
Site3: Alt health supplement brand

All of these sites are almost 6 months old and there is some linkbuilding going on for these but main link building will start now. I have different project managers and team for each website and they will also use their skills to grow it and that's something that i will post here too.

And i will be adding 2 more sites soon to this but the aim will increase too.

What can you receive from this journey?
I will try a lot of old things that has already worked for me and will try new things that i will figure out over time like tiktok organic and ads. Mostly i will do proper SEO + publication partnership + Affiliates for these.

I am writing whatever is coming to my mind, no fucking filter, no fucking editor, no fucking holding back the information. I will still hold back the urls but that's all. You can ask anything you want on the thread except the url and keywords.

Side Quests:
  1. Grow my crypto portfolio (will tell you what i am investing it and why)
  2. Health Goals, my cholesterol is super high right now and need to fix it this year (my weight and everything else is good tho) (kinda my main quest too, side quest for the thread)
  3. Creating a small watch collection in 2024, i am a guy who didn't care about watches in 2023, but they are attracting me like crazy now.
  4. Networking with a lot of people to grow/ make new businesses that i know nothing about and still can grow
My New Year's resolution is to be consistent at whatever i do even if it's the worst idea in the world, specialisation over generalisation.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Lets get this party started <3

Interesting Info! Best of luck @DJ.Bud
 
Let's go excited for your new journey. My health goals are very similar to yours so will be following this one closely

Good luck with journey!
what do you mean about seo in these two sentences?
 
Update #1 (3rd Jan):

  • Set targets for all the brands that are on the list and discussed them with the SEOs and PMs (Taken Achievable targets)
  • Added 3 more stores on metorik and the number is inflated now, already doing 200k+ a month with all of the stores. So the first goal will be to get to a Million a month with all of these then the aim will shift to 2M/m as soon as we achieve it (screenshot below, on how we are doing for 2 days)
  • We are going for influencer videos for all the brands now, and it will be easy review type videos for now and slowly move to viral type content (whatever's working on the platforms). We are doing these type of videos as once people see our ads, or see us ranked on google they would want to read a review or watch someone take the supplements, which will increase trust and we will also do titles like "Taken this supplement for 45 days, this is what happened" and out of these videos we will cut some shorts, reels and populate our socials too.
  • Hyping our tiktok page, hired 4 creators on fiverr. They will charge $100 per video and these videos are mostly on our own channels. Viral type videos only. Aim is to add 2 videos per day, lets see how it works. Want to take advantage of tiktok shop af (learn about it for your business too)
Today:

We will be figuring out how many links and articles we have to push per month to rank asap. We will be clustering for all the big keywords and make links to the cluster too. Will explain the detailed strategy later once we apply it.


Side Quest:

1) Ran for 30 mins and ate good yesterday
2) Invested some money into $JUP on solana, one of the most hyped coin right now and can go crazy when it launches.
3) Invested into $topia (Hytopia), this is my 10X coin, i won't be selling it till it's 10-20X for me. I believe in the founders and the world they are building, freaking love it. Once ETH is 4000+ i am sure topia will be 20X for me. ALT season can be crazy :)
4) Buying G-shock 2100 model soon, it's the best under $100, pretty good outdoor watch for me.
5) Networking :)
Good luck with your journey.

Thanks :)

Love it.

That seo changes a lot, so always look at the serp on what's happening and change strategies accordingly.

Content and backlinks will always be at the forefront tho, sometimes some type of backlinks will work less, you just have to figure out what's happening.
Good luck with that!

I follow thread
Thanks :)
Sounds interesting.
Following!
Thanks :)
Looking forward to the development of your plan.
me too :)
 
Thanks for reply! About SEO, are you doing it by your own or using agency/freelancer?
 
Update #3 [4th Jan'24]

Added 6 stores, so we will be pushing for 34k per day asap with all of these, then move on to 68k to 120k a day. Step by step.

screenshot-app.metorik.com-2024.01.04-16_53_20.png

  • Figured out all the problems that were there and told the SEO team to fix them on the brand level
  • Added keywords on serprobot and i have added a revenue number infront of the keyword, now the team knows that if they rank for a keyword they will be producing this much for the store.
  • Gave our influencer manager a target of getting 40k in sales and 1M views on the videos in 3 months. Lets see what happens.
  • We are working with mensjournal to generate 6 articles but they are charging 15k per article, which will make us unprofitable for this month i guess. Lets see. Fucking tough shit right now. Will probably use outlookindia to do some articles too tho, that site can rank for anything lol
  • We are finding affiliates who can really do well via paid ads and native. We'll pay awesome commissions to them if we like their portfolio. Got a few from bhw but they haven't produced any result yet. It's okay tho.
  • Keyword researching each product category intensively and give directions to our seo team about it.


    I know store level journey would have been better and you could have learned much more. Will figure things out and start doing store level updates too. It shouldn't take much time. Lets see.


Side Quests:
1. Will start lifting weights again, + 1 hours of cardio. I used to lift well still cholesterol happened so adding cardio is important af to get rid of this. Bought a treadmill at home and i jump on it whenever i feel i need to run :)
2. Thanks to the ETF news, bitcoin fell. So i bought some bitcoin for now. I hope ETF thing is postponed so that people sell their bitcoins and i will buy a few. Invested 2.4 BTC during the slump. Lets fucking go!
3. Might buy some ETH soon, lets see. Bullish af due to it's roadmap addition. I feel eth should be around Apple's marketcap and bitcoin should be around gold's. Only time will tell tho.

Thanks for reply! About SEO, are you doing it by your own or using agency/freelancer?
Inhouse SEOs as i have systems to deliver 2000+ backlinks a month and works well.
Good luck mate!
Thanks.
Very interesting! Also have a question where do you buy coins?
raydium on solana, if you don't know it's good to do a lot of research before investing.
Any updates ?
Once or twice a day. Depending on how free i am.
Following good luck
great :)
 
Update #4 [5th Jan]:

Store-wise updates start today.

Site #1 (N): $5779.77
Site #2 (B): $51.30
Site #3 (L): $1024.04
Site #4 (C): $42.71
Site #5 (R): $46.45
Site #6 (Z): $132.91

screenshot-app.metorik.com-2024.01.06-14_26_49.png

Site N: This site is pretty stable as the rankings are almost all maxed out. We are looking for new keywords to rank and make revenue off. This site is 2 years old and ranking well maintained due to good guest posts and private PBNs. We update all the pages every quarter. The aim right now with this is new product launches that people on our email will like and we ask them what product should we launch next.

But we need to find new products that are good for people and recurring income in this niche is high. LTV is mostly around $400 :)

Growing the traffic will be very important.

Ahrefs screenshot here:
screenshot-app.ahrefs.com-2024.01.06-14_43_21.png

Site B: This site is newer and we are introducing very new things in this niche. Currently, blogs are ranking on this but collection/product pages aren't so that's not a good thing, fixing all these pages so that we can rank for money-making keywords.

The blog's role should be to push the rankings of these pages or educate our email subscribers. We aim to get the rankings ASAP and see how much we can scale in a few months. We will start building links to the pages soon and push the rankings up.

Site L: This site has so much potential! It's been 6 months since we have launched this. Everything is going well with this, we have to grow this by ranking main keywords at #1. It'll be tough tbh so we're building 1-2 backlinks a day to various pages. We look for backlinks that already are ranked for our keywords (it can get costly, sometimes $500 for a single backlink but you have to figure things out)

The median is around $200 per backlink but it is what it is :) Auction domains are super expensive these days so we are building out microsites in this niche and pushing them via public pbns to throw this site. A little time-consuming but very inexpensive because of AI and PBN backlinks that you can find on BHW. We'll grow this to 100K a month very soon. Aiming this Quarter to reach 180k (60k a month). I am hopeful that we will :)
screenshot-app.ahrefs.com-2024.01.06-14_57_58.png

Site C: This is a very new site and the start is pretty good but we are unable to find proper keywords that will produce a lot of revenue for us. We are hopeful in this niche as our competitors are making $500k a month and LTV in this niche can go up to 1200. We are trying to rank for the keywords that our competitors have first and working on TikTok to push as many videos as we can for brand recognition. We want to get these products in people's hands as these are new and people want to try things in this niche.

let's see and hope for the best. Starts suck right now, but that's alright.
screenshot-app.ahrefs.com-2024.01.06-16_02_14.png

Site R: We planned for 1 year, fixed everything, and then launched this. We have started the marketing 3 months back for this and we are spending around 10k per month in fixed costs for this. It's high right now, but we know the upside is awesome with this. We need to get one hit and we will pass 5000 a day with this brand. Slowly working on SEO, getting into media and slowly getting a lot of influencers to promote this in exchange for products & money.

SEO will take time, so we are contacting all the affiliates, spending another 10k on ads, and trying to get maximum sales for this. If this brand grows we will do a lot of interesting things that even BHW can recommend. We can even reach $5M with this brand but lets not get ahead of time as we are only doing 6k per month and spending 20k :| So slow and steady.

screenshot-app.ahrefs.com-2024.01.06-16_11_54.png

Last but not the least.

Site Z: This is a site that should reach 1M per month faster than every other brand on this list. It's not doing great at the moment as we got hit by Google last month and we are still recovering. We need 100s of guest posts for this site every month, one of the most competitive niche but it's rewarding too. We are figuring out how to increase the LTV.

Ranking for most big keywords are stuck at 30-40 and we are building links again. Google pushed our rankings from 5-15 to 30-40. So we need to figure out what we can do to get the rankings back ASAP. Will share about this brand more soon, we will discuss in detail and will need some help from you guys too, Whatever's working for you and how you're ranking crazy keywords.




screenshot-app.ahrefs.com-2024.01.06-16_23_41.png

Where are you promoting backlink building business? How much does your average pbn link cost?
We don't have a lot of clients and don't need a lot of clients, to be honest. We have 6 clients and they spend around 600-900k a month with us in different niches like casino, cannabis, etc. Very difficult niches where you rank and bank millions a month. That's why we are also launching a casino with our SEO partners and become legit.

one of the brands that we work with is doing 10M in in and out a day. Which is pretty crazy if you ask me. We will try that soon too ;)
 
This journey is the one I hope will pass above second page :) I wish you a great success!

How you calculate and predict the LTV? What are your methods to increase it? Only email list or any specific ad campaign?
