So most people I've read on this forum make websites for themselves to promote some CPA offer or adsense of some type. As much as I would love to do that, I have almost no idea how to promote or rank sites, let alone market to online customers. I, however, do have plenty of experience creating and hosting sites themselves and this is something that I find many people lack the skill to do. So here's my plan: Step One: Contact close to 100 local businesses that either don't have a website or have one that is quite sub par. Explain to them the benefits of owning a website and/or having an online store. When I contact them I plan to explain that I will design the website for free which is normally a $500 expense but I will charge them for hosting. I plan on charging them $50 for both hosting and "maintenance" each month. For e-commerce site I will charge $80 per month and will allow them to update and add products. Step Two: Start creating websites to pitch to them. I haven't decided which type of designer I will use. I figured a drag and drop will be pretty easy and fast but wordpress will be a bit more customizable. The thing is most drag and drop sites like WIX require me to use their hosting service which is really overpriced. I plan on using the NameCheap ultimate hosting which will allow me to have up to 50 sites per account for only $30 per year. So if you guys know of any drag and drop solutions for that I would love to hear them. Step Three: Recurring Billing. I will provide them with other options like adding them to Yelp and Google Reviews for like an extra $30 per month which really means leaving one or two reviews on each per month, quite manageable and I could even outsource this for really cheap. Now what I won't be doing is any SEO because at this point I imagine most of these businesses won't know what that is and it really isn't worth my time. I will also offer them ad-campaign options where I will manage their campaign and I'll take like 15% of the budget for myself. This will include running local newspaper ads and google adwords and such. At this pace I will only need 40 websites to reach my goal which I think is really manageable. I could even start reaching out into other areas nearby. I plan to lock each site in for one year so I'll have some kind of steady income and of course I plan to scale this up by adding more and more sites. In the end I would really like to have 100 sites with ten of them being e-commerce sites, meaning that I will be making around $5300 per month with relatively low startup costs. I would love to hear any and all suggestions. This will be great funding for some of my future side projects and I can't wait to get started!
