I really need to ramp up my income from IMing over the next month or 2 - long story, but basically we were defrauded of $60,000 (all we had) a few years ago, which through that event has caused us to now be out of pocket a further $100,000 on top of that. We were supposed to be receiving a 'so-called' settlement of about $70,000 in the next few months but I've just learnt that certain people are now trying to wriggle out of that .
My husband & myself have decided that we're just going to have to try & forget about the money for now (still chase them though) & put all our (my ) efforts into the IMing to help try & get ourselves back on track.
I currently have one ebook site that has done quite well for the last couple of years (& another that doesn't do so well) & have been playing around a bit with bum marketing over the last few months (going reasonably well, but I'm starting to think there's a bit too much work for the return it gives).
I have many ideas for new sites, but have settled on 3 in particular for the next few months. All 3 of them aren't anything new, but will have a USP to help separate them from everyone else - PLR memb. site, IMing memb. site (specific IM niche), & classified ad site (non IM niche).
Anyway, my question is have any of you ever ended up with a 'dud'/unsuccessful site just doing what everyone else is doing? For example, there are heaps of blogging guides out there, so if you may have set up say a blogging guide & had it not convert very well...assuming it had professional sales copy etc.
I'm just wondering as I think I'm suffering from a bit of 'analysis paralysis' trying to work out which one to go with first.
