I wanted to make a really good post to start off the year, and make one that will be really helpful and detailed so that you can use it. What I’m going to explain in this post is an exact plan that you can follow in as little as 1 hour a day, that will give you everything you need to know to produce an income stream of $100/day. Now, how long that takes will depend, but if you follow these same simple steps everyday for X amount of time, eventually you can hit $50, $100, and $200+ a day in online income.
The main idea here is to provide a solid, step-by-step plan that you can follow for at least one hour everyday, no matter what else is going on or distracting you. For example, if you have 4 niche sites that you’re working on, but you’re never getting very much done on any given one, or if you’ve been spending time trying to make money with the Kindle store or some other method- you have at least one hour each day that you do that same basic but effective tasks over and over that will eventually turn into a nice income.
Okay, if you’ve read my blog much, you know that I think niche sites are the best way to get started, and this won’t be much different. But for this project, instead of choosing a small niche, you’re going to start a site in a big niche. Basically what you’re going to be starting is an affiliate blog. You can choose any topic, just pick a big, competitive niche such as health, fitness, relationships, dating, personal finance, etc… something like that where a lot of people are clearly spending a lot of money.
By the way, I used to recommend Bluehost because it’s what I used when I first started, but as my sites grew I came to a big realization that can save you a lot of time, energy, and frustration in the future. The problem with Bluehost, is that they only offer shared hosting… when one or many of your sites start getting a lot of traffic, you’ll get a nice little email from Bluehost that says they’re going to shut down your account, And, since they only offer shared hosting, you have to move the site(s) in question to another host and move up into at least a VPS server or higher. Transferring your sites, for which Bluehost doesn’t help you with the process of course, is a big pain.
So, having explained that, I now recommend that you just start off with Hostgator. Hostgator offers it all from A to Z, and when one of your sites needs a bigger hosting plan, you can just seamlessly upgrade your account within Hostgator without the hassle of moving complete sites to another host. So, if you don’t have hosting yet, start with a “baby package” from Hostgator- and even if you only have a few sites, I would make the move now rather than later when it would be more complicated.
Okay back to the plan, so you pick your blog’s topic, and you install WordPress just like normal. Use whatever theme you want, there are things about Profits Theme that make other tasks much easier and more effective, and that’s why I use it on all my sites but if you have your favorite theme than more power to you.
There are a few things that you need to do once, and then a few things that will make up the ongoing “process” that you will do over and over until the site is making as much as you want it to.
The Steps You Need to do Once:
- Setup your hosting-Hostgator
- Install WordPress and install a theme- I recommend Profits Theme
- Get an autoresponder- I recommend Aweber
- Create a valuable freebie
- Setup at least 7 autoresponder emails provide great information and that recommend 2 different affiliate products
The Ongoing “Process” That You’ll Do Over and Over
These steps should be done in this order, and then repeated as soon as you complete them.
- You write a blog post that is keyword optimized
- (optional)- create a Youtube video for that blog post based on the same keywords, that you’ll come back and embed on your blog post
- You do a Unique Article Wizard submission and 5 Build My Rank submissions for that blog post- if you only want to start off with one service, go with Build My Rank
- 10 blog comments on other popular blogs in your niche
- 10 forum comments in the most popular forums in your niche
So to clarify the process and give an example, let’s say that you’re going to follow this plan for exactly one hour each day. Let’s say that on day one, you spend your hour writing a blog post. On day 2, let’s say it takes you the full hour to do 5 Build My Rank entries- but that’s fine. On day 3, it takes you an hour to do the 10 blog comments and the 10 forum comments. So on day 4, you’ll spend the hour writing another blog post, and so on and so forth.
Now obviously, some people will be able to do more than other in an hour, or you might want to dedicate 2 or 3 hours a day to this process. But I’m telling you, this format will work if you will pound it out for at least one hour everyday, no matter what. You’ll be amazed at the progress you’ll make in 6 months doing exactly what I’ve outlined just one hour a day.
That’s IT! Don’t be fooled by the simplicity- this works, and it will work for a long time to come. Leave a comment, ask a question, and share/like this post please.
