    So,

    Just for some background - my name is Ryan and I have been in the internet marketing business for 7 years full-time. I make a decent living from owning several semi-popular websites and have quite a few clients to keep my afloat as well. I am comfortable. All of my current websites are located in niches outside of IM, and a few months ago I realized that I should also be leveraging my IM knowledge. I also have always enjoyed helping others build out their own businesses/websites/startups and do enjoy giving back when I can.

    Recently I have become pretty bored with my day to day grind with clients and decided to challenge myself. I parted ways with a few clients that needed a lot of attention, and have outsourced the work for the rest. Additionally I outsourced a lot of content for the websites I own, and have it drip feeding onto them for the coming months. I'll be paying much less attention to them while chasing a new goal;

    Build a website that helps others, and earns $10,000+ per month.

    So, a few months ago I founded CopyThrive with my brother, who also does IM for a living. At first it was just casual. I provide in-depth, free marketing guides to the public. The site is monetized through affiliate products, and eventually will also offer more detailed video courses for small dollar amounts.

    I have been slowly adding guides over the course of the last few months, which can be found here;

    I am going to focus solely on this website for the foreseeable future and build it into what I can. All promotional methods will be 100% whitehat, without any software used for linkbuilding. I will be promoting it heavily through social networks and do some guest posting. As of right now, the website brings in less than 1,000 users per month, and earned only $157 last month.
