Hey blackhatters, Over the next 3 months I am building an authority site for a highly targeted niche. The site has 3 goals: 1. Establish me as an authority on the topic. 2. To generate income through product sales. 3. To provide a base for my future efforts. I don't pertain to be an expert in internet marketing, but i have the time and more then enough motivation. I'm tired of lurking/reading but never putting things into action so I'm going to put everything i have into this, and would love your input at every step of the way. I will do this through a variety of methods learned from this forum, marketing products I've purchased and I will post summaries of any methods/knowledge i'm 'actioning' in the hope that this thread will become a great resource for anyone who wants to achieve a similar goal. My plan for success?1. Find out what my niche wants 2. Go get it/create it 3. Give it to them. So here it goes! N.B I have no plans to market the information that this thread generates, so it'll all truly be 'open source', free to all for the benefit of all.
