    Over the past 3 months I've gathered up $85 in Beermoney in my PayPal account and I figured it's time I make use of it. I was hoping to do something like this: Buy one of those Micro Niche website deals for $35 that is available on this forum. Find cheap hosting (I have no idea how much that costs) Make an AdSense account and spend whatever I have left on SEO packages since I don't know anything about promoting/getting traffic. I'm guessing this is possible on what I guess is a tight budget but I do have a few questions. Firstly, do I need anything for an AdSense account? Secondly, will I need to do anything after buying hosting, SEO and the website itself or does it just go on autopilot? Lastly, am I missing something or do I have a credible plan? I ask because I am completely new to this and I have never done any of the above before and my knowledge on these things is very little. Thank you!

    Hi there fellow countryman.

    How much have you researched what you want to do ? How much time are you willing to put into this. And how many times will you be able to shake of self-anger and resentment.

    Understand that I'm not saying it is impossible. But you yourself will have to do the legwork. Buying a site and leaving it on autopilot is not going to make you money ( otherwise everybody would be doing it right ? )

    As a Bloubul I want to see you succeed because I am sorry I trampled you in our last game :)

    The only thing you are missing is to start . But don't throw money at things you are not sure about yet ( ask me about Forex ..... )

    On a side note which has quite a resemblance to your current situation : Who made the most money during a gold rush .... the people selling spades .... ( and by that I'm not trying to discredit the person wanting to sell you a spade )

    I'd suggest making the niche site yourself, and buying the keywords you want to rank for. You can buy the SEO package if you want, but the experience of building niche sites you NEED if you want to do it in the future.

    Why don't you start a blog with blogspot and choose the niche you're interested in? You can apply for adsense with blogspot blog. Write your own articles and see if it's going to work.

    You don't have to go for SEO immediately, start driving traffic via Facebook groups, twitter, pinterest or Instagram. Invest yor money in some social media tools.

    Thanks all for the informative replies, the thing is that those niche site packages seem really enticing with the prospect of making $1-$4K per month (I'd be happy with $200 to be honest) and they're all pre-made and done which eliminates a lot of work that I can't really do on my own. I can only really make the site look nice and type articles, the keyword and SEO work is something I'd pay someone else to do.

    They're lying, there is no way you can make 4000 a month from a $35 shitty website.

    Total waste of money, time and effort. If they could make that much why would they sell them so cheap?

    Read meatheads Amazon thread, you could do that with $100 and it may actually work.

    I actually thought the same when i was into micro niche sites. I spent some money on pre-made sites from few sellers here hoping to live the internet dream. The truth is its not as easy as they make it seem like it is. You still need to put some effort on getting some quality content for your sites or google will hit you with some penalty (learned my lesson). Sometimes some of the keywords they give are not really easy, so you need to manually check it to make sure you can easily rank it.

    That one is from meathead1234, and many people are experiencing success with it, and it is based on a real world model as opposed to short-term easy money. It's a real business model that almost anyone can learn. Definitely better to start something with a concrete guide. I'm not saying this is the one for you. Only you folks can decide that.

    I can say that I am one of the people implementing that model, and I'm optimistic it will continue to grow. I'm working on 3 niche sites at this time in addition to my regular projects and/or side stuff.

    Thanks, I looked into his method and made a niche site on my own with my own hosting yesterday, just building up some quality content for it and I hope to monetize within about a week of working on it.

    I think you need content for your site ,right ? Find a niche you like and learn until your have some certain knowlegde about it , then start making up a blog and writing , buy SEO packet or whatever to draw traffic to your site , then BOOM.... money :))

    Make sure to have a lot of content before adding the site to amazon. They are not a big fan of sites with little content. But I guess that won't matter since you already have an account.

    If you need a new host, have a look at OVH and their virtual boxes. Very cheap and great for a new site.
