One way some people are making big money is by building a viable business, such as a Niche Website, and then selling it. The following should help you understand what to look for before selling or buying a Niche Website. Once you’ve done it 2 or 3 times, you’ll have a good feel for it and know exactly what to do. If you’ve been in business for only a little bit and are not sure how to proceed, this post helps you understand the various points to look at when contemplating a Niche Website transfer.
Note that when you are a beginner, you may want to first create your own website. You may have the money to purchase an existing website, but know that you may run into various problems that you would avoid, were you to create a new Niche Website from scratch. That being said, having a website with existing traffic and good content is not a bad decision to make. Creating your own website, though, may be helpful to you as a valuable learning experience.

When it comes to getting more traffic to a website, many have worked in ways that trump the Search Engine Robots. Unfortunately for them, those robots are becoming more and more intelligent and as a result prevent them from getting any traffic to their website.

One thing that Google helps you with is to optimize your website. Some of the optimizations that they ask you to do are not all good ideas, especially placing your CSS at the bottom of your page. If you do that, your page will appear broken until the CSS loads and I think that’s not a desirable effect (although if your page looked like the background only until the CSS loads, it would probably be okay.) Continue reading “SEO: Optimize Your Niche Website Pages”
There are more and more reports about Google not sending as much traffic (if any) to pages that include swear words and also that are rather negative (i.e. a long rant will get you nowhere.)
Since you are building a Niche Website, you should not have to worry about such, although if you do product reviews, think about how to talk about a product that’s not so good in a non-derogatory way*. Don’t insult the manufacturer or make fun of them. Unless you’re already big and have time on your hands to create such pages, just avoid that sort of pages altogether. If you just can’t talk about a product in a positive way, don’t talk about it. Period.
* Actually, Amazon.com also doesn’t like derogatory reviews. If for some reasons they decide to check your website closely, they could shut down your account. For them, all products are good products. It makes sense since they want to maximize their sales. Products that are not so good won’t sell much anyway and will automatically disappear.

The following is a glossary of the many terms we use when doing Internet Marketing and more specifically, for Internet Affiliates. There are many acronyms in use today, some which are very similar to each other and yet someone may use one rather than the other making it sound different even though they mean the same thing.

I’m writing this post because Shopify is offering me, as an Affiliate, the possibility to win a $2,500 prize and any chance I have to place my Shopify link on my website, I have to take, right? Right?
Now, really, I think there is a great new program that Shopify offers, which makes sense if you are an Amazon Affiliate and wanted to also sell your own products. Continue reading “Getting Products for Sale Through Shopify & Amazon.com”
Whoever wants to build a business has to think about how that’s going to work with the other aspects of their lives. I think that to a certain extent these sacrifices apply to Niche Websites owners, at least for a while.
Have you listened to an Internet Marketer Video or Webinar? Or read one of their e-Books? Did they talk about how hard their life was when they got started? In many cases, they were poor, had to go to a sad job, or just lost their job after 10 years of working hard for that employer… And then they finally found out how to make it work for them and made a ton of money online. Some are just starting and they may not yet be that rich… But some, like Frank Kern, made it to the top, for sure. So it does happen. In case of Frank, he talks about how he lived in that small apartment and could barely feed himself. Continue reading “Success Requires Sacrifices”
As an Internet Affiliate, you are always on the lookout (at least I think you should be) and once in a while, you will want to change your Domain Name. This can be useful if your first choice was not available when you first created your Niche Website and it becomes available later at a decent price. Especially, since at first you are going to earn peanuts (when you create your first website,) you want to look into getting a cheap dot-com and not attempt to purchase an expensive domain name (hundreds if not thousands of dollars) unless you have that kind of money to start with. Note that, as I recommend, you decided to use Bluehost, then you get the dot-com included with your hosting. No extra cost to it. But you still want to not look at a premium domain name. Also please stick to a dot-com. Other extensions are fun and all but it’s difficult to get people to go to such websites. All large websites use a dot-com at the moment.

Amazon.com is always working hard to protect their brand and one aspect of that is to check on their affiliate’s websites and making sure that they all are following their terms & conditions. Whenever you sign up as an Internet Affiliate with Amazon or any other company, you are actually bound by contract (even if you don’t feel like reading that contract then… it still applies to you!)
The point for Amazon is they want to keep it clear that when you send people to their website, it is because you want to make money. But they also want to keep their brand in good standing and they have to protect their data which includes the pictures of the products their offer, among other things.

Like with any sort of job, you want to make sure you become as efficient as possible with your Internet Affiliate endeavor. Optimize your Niche Website and work on it until it’s complete. Remember that it won’t generate any money right away. It will take a few months. Some niches may be faster, but chances are it will take your Niche Website some time to really start getting the number of clicks needed for you to start seeing money coming in.
Another important point: We all make mistakes. We actually are better at learning when we make a mistake, I think. The point is that if you don’t start your Niche Website or some other business just because you are afraid of making mistakes, well… you’re likely to never find a way to build an automatic recurring income. The Internet is an amazing tool to do that, though. Pretty cheap to get started contrary to the old days of needing a few million dollars just to open a brick and mortar store that you are not even sure will produce a return on investment.
