The Goal 36.5k Dollars a Year 100 Dollars a Day Per Aspera Ad Astra ? Through the thorns, to the stars. (Latin) Website #1 (Affiliate Marketing) Currently this website only has a 600 word article with 2 outbound links (between the last few paragraphs) in the article. The first link is a download for a PDF document with my affiliate link for a relevant product. The second, I directly posted my affiliate link. I submitted that PDF to several different pdf archives. I submitted my ?landing page? to several free link directories I submitted my landing page article to several article directories Currently Receives 34 Uniques a month Obviously what I have right now is complete utter crap and wouldn?t convert shit. The above was a result from jumping into IM face first, still don't know what I'm doing. Plan of Attack (Website #1) 1. Rework the landing page into a real landing page, not just an article with links 2. Implement a marketing funnel External Traffic Source Internal Article Landing page Call to action Lead Form Sales Page Conversion 3. Start an Opt-In Campaign 4. Heavily Research Relevant Keywords ( Again :l ) Minimum 100 Long Tail Keywords with minimum competition Refine my Keyword Research into a process 5. Drive Traffic Slam the website with high quality links Contact all websites on the first, maybe second page for each keyword Submit site to article directories Comment Market Article Market Crank out halfway decent content to beef up the site Relevant to each keyword SEO optimized All pointing towards the landing page As soon as this article is posted I will be saving it, printing it and researching, planning every step. Target Date: January 1st 2014.
