Hi guys, This thread will serve as a call to action for me. I've been around the e-commerce block and SEO for a while, and now I want to put a lot of this into action. My goals: - Build long lasting sites which become leaders in their niches. - Make enough income that I stop having to supplement self-employed income with jobs and job searching. - Build up enough money and later assets to not have to worry about long-long term career planning in the traditional sense. Currently, I'm working on 4 projects. - I'm doing a twist on the "Kindle" projects you see so much of. I've got two books out as of February, and hoping to ramp this up to one book a week in the next month. At the moment, I've written both books myself, and have a couple of books that were written by outside forces which I've yet to release. One was pretty good quality, and just needs an intro and conclusion. the other was frankly not up to standard. At the moment both books are on the KDP Select Program. My next book is going to be a bit of an experiment, not exclusive to kindle. I'll put it on the various other vendors and see how it sells. Second and third projects are going to be membership sites. I've never run a membership site in my life, so it's a steep learning curve. Pricing is something I've not thought about yet. Concentrating on getting the content up and testing and everything done before I worry about the pro plans. If anyone has any help to provide on this, it'd be much appreciated. Going to write about ten weeks worth of material before I start worrying about the mechanics of it. Fourth Project is a blog and info product combo. Probably a book. Niche is massive on the internet and there aren't really any authority sites on the subject, just pockets of forums and forumgoers collectively drowning in their misery because their issues aren't being addressed by anyone. That's where I come in Again, I've got about 35 blog entries planned and I'll write those up, regurgitate some of the information and include more new stuff for a book that'll be $10 or so. Network with some other bloggers, build a mailing list, so on and so forth. I'll leave it there for the plan. A bit about me to anticipate some questions: I also have a web design, development and SEO company which occasionally gets clients, so there's that. A couple of ecommerce stores which make negligable sales. Nice bit of income on the side, but it doesn't exactly put me in the private jet and Lamborghini territory. I'm mid-twenties. my actual income needs are pretty low, i could easily make do on less than $2000 a month. my goal within six months to a year is £1500 a month. After that, my goals have been met and development is development. I should probably be thinking bigger, but I get more motivated by achieving goals than chasing them. The reason I've got several projects is because I juggle to overcome boredom. If I work seven days a week on the same project, I'll burnout. Having multiple projects allows me to work all day, every day. Thus far, I've had career experience in writing and also a niche skill which is what one of my membership sites will be about. Hence the plan involves so much content writing. Once I've got the money rolling in (and I can find decent content writers), I'll outsource some of that to concentrate on development. Until then, I'm budgeting for writing at least 5000 words a day. This week, I'm striking while the iron is hot and am going to get 100,000 words worth of articles done. Crazy. So I'll have to get to it. All questions are welcome, helpful tips are even more welcome. P.S. If I dont update this, feel free to throw laziness-breaking vitriol in my direction.
