I'm committed to build a viral sharing website like buzzfeed and diply. Target method - Facebook and Twitter Viral marketing, Facebook PPE (boost post) Monetising method - Adsense for now and may be Outbrain and sell ad space in future. Current status: Site up and running. Have a Facebook page of 300 fans built organically. Had one of the posts go viral bringing about 10,000 page visits yesterday (This really got me motivated). Generated 51 clicks on Adsense but the CPC was poor at $0.11 Next steps: Increase fan base to 1000 (real people) Add more quality content that will go viral Find better ways to monetise / optimise the site for higher CPC Long-term goal: Make this a recurring income stream by outsourcing content writing and focus more on marketing tasks. Will update the thread as and when I pass through big milestones through this journey. Cheers!
