Summary of what is in this thread and the first thread.

1. Templates - a few examples of other sites - a few that are available in the download section -- and templates vary depending on how you want your site to look.
(I prefer Magazine type themes so people are more curious and click things - and they provide good organization)

2. Domain Names -- we have discussed EMD's and more general names - I prefer EMD's but this is up to you

3. Keywords - I suggested researching Buying Type of Words -- by looking at competitor sites / by using keyword tools -- and finding areas where you can jump right in with great content and basic Seo Work

4. Content - I suggested * writing yourself * buying PLR Reviews/Articles and rewriting them or * Natasha Nixon BST Thread.

5. Images - these go to match your articles - I Stock Photo - 123rf or some other image site.

6. Software - I've listed Software and what I use - you can pick and choose what you like and what you don't and find better alternatives.

7. Seo - I've outlined a basic 2-3 month strategy - and then a 3+ month strategy should your site prove its going to make you some money.

8. Hosting - we have discussed how important a reliable host is - you simply cannot afford downtime or hosts that take days to resolve any issues you may have

9. Plugins - I've given you what I use - and there are discussions on other plugins in the thread.

10. Statistics - I've shared my experiences with autoblogs and what I see now in terms of how to benchmark your sites.

11. Organization - I've shared how I manage 30+ Wordpress Sites with a click of a button and control the project with the minimum amount of time.

12. Growth Strategy - I've shared scaling and using tools like Ubot to build custom bots to do basic tasks without lifting a finger.

13. Structure - I've said to build yourself Lists of Tasks / Keywords / URLS so you can access them easily and use them in Seo or for better management of your workflow.

14. Other products - I've talked about other things Ive done that failed - and future things such as NFL2011 Ad Based Methods ... as well as posting links to multiple resources on Amazon and places to find things that may be helpful to you.


So I feel like these threads have laid out a fairly solid groundwork for sites that can make you money -- but of course it is work and they are not a get rich quick sort of project. I look forward in coming months to people's results and suggestions to make the Amazon Community here on BHW all the more successful ... so I wish everyone Sales today and check back in tomorrow ... cheers.

Danny - You mentioned in one of the previous posts that FSB owner robbed you. Could you please elaborate on that I have unlimited site license but have not created a single site as the guy requires you to register every single site with him and i am not comfortable with that idea.

Well look Carey Baird is a thief / liar and scammer .. he will even admit to anyone that he stole my money - and his only excuse was that I wrote a mean email to him asking for my money .. The guy lives in Thailand or something so its not worth the effort over $1000.

Anyway basically what happened was this - I was one of the first people to use it with an unlimited licence. Carey helped set up my sites and added the affiliate links (mine) into the script and got them online. I then customized everything - added content and seo ... next thing you know I'm seeing Checkouts from the site every day 10-30 across multiple sites ... but in Amazon no Sales.

I contacted carey and posted on the forum - Carey said everything is fine - its working perfectly. Well a few months later other people started writing on the forum the same thing - Carey then admits that he never told anyone that if you don't register your site with him - that he replaces your affiliate link with his -- and he takes all the Sales. So he deletes all these posts off the forum and bans the people like me who posted about this. Then he says he will pay me for the Sales as well as the other people.

Next he says you know what there was so few sales its not worth it - then he says there are so many Sales I need to provide him with an item by item list and he will check it against his Sales report. So then he agrees to pay me - but months go by and no money - so I start sending him an email every week asking for my money -- then he says I'm not paying you because your email was rude. No crap Sherlock you have been stealing from me and others for months - you got caught - now you gotta pay up.

Anyway next thing you see is he is posting his software in forums and even here in BHW - not telling anyone that if they use it - he will get their commissions ... so it would be like cracked FSB version 2 .. but it wasn't cracked. Anyway I called him out on it here on BHW and he doesn't post here anymore.

So yeah if you want to trust the guy and use his products - go ahead - but the truth is the truth.

I never trusted him when i got to know that he needs every single site to be registered with him for it to function. His lame excuse was to prevent his script from being stolen but he never gave a straight answer to this in the forum. After reading your story, I believe this guy is a full time scammer.

Just keep in mind - when I was using this - he never told anyone he had a hidden security feature - and even after setting up my sites never told me --- when it came into the open briefly - he then started including in his PDF that you had to register the sites ... so for me at the time I was using it -- > it was just an out and out scam.

Hi,
I have a question about domain. If domain is product name, is it ok? I worry about this domain will be taken in the future by the manufacturer.

In general, product names should be avoided in domains, especially if they have been trademarked. You can check if a (US) product name has been trade marked here:
Code:
www.uspto.gov/trademarks/process/search/#heading-1

The exceptions to the above generalization, include cases where you have an agreement with the product owner to promote their product in this way, e.g. they agree you can use the domain: productnameblog.com, to exclusively promote their product.

So how do you give instructions to writers, specific instructions, so that the content they write for you is highly converting?

I've been working with a few writers. Their articles are good, but they are informative in nature, not compelling. I assume readers are going to visit and perhaps click away anything they see after that, if not the back button.

What are your experience? What do you give to writers besides keyword?

I don't think you can really, nobody is as motivated to write to sell your stuff as you are, its just a case of a quick or long manual re-write to include what you want to say.

well I actually think the PLR reviews are better than just getting a writer to do it - in terms of how they structure/produce a review.

so to me if I make a little outline of what I expect for the review - I want it to explain this - I want specifications included - I want some feedback as to + or - .. are their newer models available or older models - what is a comparable product.

You really have to focus on what makes a good review and what doesn't -- you can't expect a writer to read your mind --- you gotta do some homework with this... and let them know how you want it done.


Alternatively write the reviews yourself and have a writer do the general stuff. Honestly I hate writing but at end of day - the better quality the more Sales you will get.

I don't recommend this - but maybe for people who are dead broke - this maybe a better place for you to start.

Its Amazon via Blogger with an Autoposter



Its like $27 -- and will let you spam away till your hearts content.

Please remember - to take whatever money you make and use it for something more sustainable - as using this method once Blogger catches onto you - they will just delete your blogs .. whether it takes 1 week or 3 months.

Cheers

This is also an easy way to try out a niche or keyword. Little effort to figure out what converts and then build something worth keeping. Going to give that a shot.
