Then you stumbled on niche marketing and realised that it didn’t have to be like that, the Guru told you that you could just build a small site with a few pages, get it ranked really easily and start to make money.
That can definitely work if you know how to do it the right way, but you almost certainly won’t make a good living from just one or two sites like that. It’s just one of the methods we teach how to do properly in the Achievers Inner Circle, as well as how to develop much larger websites using other techniques.
So if you decide to go the small niche site route you’re usually told that it’s fast and easy to do?
Then usually when you get your first three or four websites built reality hits home. Suddenly you realise that you put all that work in and now you have a few websites just sat there not really making any money. It’s probably because you haven’t done enough promotion, or if you have and you’re getting some traffic you’re probably wondering where your time just disappears to now?
Once you have your first few small websites you’ll tend to find that you hit a huge roadblock, all your time is being used just trying to keep up with regular, mundane tasks. Link building, writing and submitting articles, blog and forum commenting, adding content, and a ton of other things need to be done, so where are you going to find time to build more websites, if you do manage to struggle on and build another it’s only going to get harder isn’t it?
This is your wake up call to actually start managing your business!
Sounds a bit boring maybe, but that is what you will have to do to move forwards and continue to build on your success.
One of the first things to look at is how long it takes you to get one simple website built. I bet when you first started it took about 8-12 weeks to build your first site and start making a little money, now you might be doing 2 a month so in 6 months you’ll have 12 websites. What are the possibilities if you could build a site in less than a day though, and how can you do that?
It’s actually not that difficult, all you need is an organised system where you have what you need right at your fingertips to get a website built up really fast. Organise your various files, themes, plugins, tools etc so that you know exactly where they are, then you don’t have to spend time searching or downloading them each time.
Then you need to make sure that your site builder and theme are fast to work with. WordPress is fine if you know how to use it effectively for this, you can install and optimize it, upload your theme, plugins and content, and have a website built within about an hour, or less if you’re a fast worker.
There’s much more than that to making niche websites a success though!
Then comes the tasks involved in managing your websites promotion over the following weeks, just try doing that without getting organised and using proper schedules and you’ll almost certainly fail. Too much promotion such as link building could see you website receive a ranking penalty or even worse, de-indexed or banned. Not enough promotion means you won’t get much traffic and profits will be small, if anything at all.
So if you decide not to tackle one or two larger sites, and instead go for a larger number of small niche sites, and we’re talking a lot! Then just make sure that you plan in how you are going to manage them all to make a success with your business.
