Now my gut tells me I should be focused on making money with niche blogging, but I can't shake the feeling that I can be effective in the "make money online" niche despite its "saturation." I have an idea on how to be an authority in the niche and amass a following, but I want proof of my experience when I get started down that path. I know I'm capable of this because I've done something similar before. I was getting subscribers for years even when I wasn't making videos anymore. Unfortunately, it was a non-paying niche.
So my question is, would it be effective to setup a domain that redirects members to an affiliate on ClickBank or JVZoo, then use a separate portion of my site to build a squeeze-page where I'll send paid traffic for list building? My carrot would probably be some PLR content or product I create myself, and my traffic source would likely be PPC ads. I'll manage my list with Aweber, and I don't mind the up front investment all of this requires, though I am curious about a decent amount to pour in.
I've already proven taking action is the best way to learn, but I want to see if there's a flaw in my thinking before I go throwing money down the drain.
Edit: Now that I think about it, perhaps I should follow my instinct and work with niche blogging. The amount of investment I've read about for PPC campaigns is upward of $1000, and probably more for such a dense niche. I'm probably better off putting this aside until I have more investment funding.
