After a significant break from doing a real monthly income report, I’ve decided to give it another shot. I’ve done sporadic general business updates, but I’m now ready to get more consistent with sharing what’s working in my business. And the big change (that I’ve never done before), is I’m adding the income generated from NichePursuits.
Welcome to my second income report in a row! I write these posts for 2 reasons: first, to hopefully educate and inspire you for what is working in my business. And second, to help me reflect on what I've accomplished or what I should be doing better. I'll be quite honest with you, I get nervous about publishing these income reports each month.
In today’s podcast episode I interview Dave Schneider, the founder of NinjaOutreach.com. Dave started out with a travel blog, but was quickly able to discover that the best way to build links was through guest posting and outreach. As a result he started his own link building software tool in order to make the process easier and faster. That tool is Ninja Outreach.
I’ve never considered myself a “car flipper.” But if you look at my car buying habits, it’s hard not to think of me as someone that’s enjoyed flipping a car on occasion. I’ve done it twice now, and one time completely intentionally. With that being said, I've only done it with cars I have a lot of knowledge about.
Ticket scalping has always gotten a bad rap (mainly because it’s illegal in many states). Lots of people see scalpers as sleazy, and possibly con artists. But now there’s a way to take your scalping business online and do so in a perfectly legal way. Instead of people seeing you as a sketchy ticket scalper, you can go through an online ticket broker and become an upstanding “ticket reseller.
What I’m going to share with you today, is a tactic I've personally used on my sites several times. In a nutshell, I was able to get 54,000 organic pageviews alone in the last 30 days from just 1 article on a site that is about a year old. The 2 keys to success were targeting the right group of keywords and continuously updating the content as it has success.
If you've been creating niche websites for long, specifically Amazon affiliate websites, you undoubtedly know that affiliate websites have a certain look about them. I'm not saying it's wrong or it's bad – but it's usually true. Niche affiliate sites are clearly pushing products, usually starting with a homepage that looks something like this: I'm not knocking this site own ...
You've probably heard it before. “SEO is all about link building!” “If you don't build links, you'll never rank in Google!” In fact, a well-known SEO expect says the “publish and pray” method is one of the biggest myths out there. He says, it doesn't work. I won't name names, but I think someone with a name that rhymes with Ryan Bean is wrong on this one.
I first applied to Google Adsense back in 2005 or 2006. Since that time, I have applied and gotten approved many times for related business entities or helping others set up their own Google Adsense accounts. Each time, my applications have been approved to start using the Google Adsense program, so I feel like I can offer some solid advice on how to apply for Google Adsense and get approved.

If you have heard that doing a Facebook giveaway is a great way to get more email subscribers and followers, then you heard right. What I am going to share with you today goes beyond just theory. I've run several contests on Facebook and gone through the trenches to learn how to do a giveaway on Facebook properly.
When many start-up websites launched (including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others), they didn't have much of a monetization plan initially. Their primary goal was focusing on creating something that would attract attention and big traffic. Once they had the traffic in place, lots of different ways to make money will present themselves.
Back in the old days of 2015, I discovered Amazon FBA and selling private label products on Amazon. Now I've been able to sell an Amazon FBA business. Up until that point, I never really understood how easy it was to get private label products manufactured in China, shipped to Amazon, and then sold and shipped via Amazon Prime.
I'm in the mood to buy something. And I was hoping that something could be your website if it's the right fit. I'll keep this brief today. I've been building, buying, and selling websites for the past 10 years. In fact, I just sold an Amazon FBA business last month which gives me a little extra capital to invest.
If you have ever wanted to start a a blog or website that is monetized by the Amazon Associates program, then I have a few tips that may help you get started.

One of the most common questions that I get from readers is, “How do you create an Amazon product comparison chart for a niche site?” I've mentioned several times on the blog here that I used TablePress, a free WordPress plugin, but I think I need to give a better answer! Actually, I know how much I appreciate it when someone has written a detailed blog post for a process that I am hoping to le.
A few weeks ago, I shared my plans to start the social media project and what it is all about right here. In a nutshell, I plan to try various strategies to build a social media following outside of Niche Pursuits and see what kind of revenue I can generate from that social audience. In my last post, I explained exactly how I built a brand new Facebook page to over 10,000 foll ...
I received an email from a reader the other day that asked me what business venture I would pursue if I was starting over.
