I recently wrote an article on the forum talking about the steps that I take when finding profitable keywords.
Someone sent me a message and ask how I made money with this method so I thought I would share my own personal success story.
After struggling for over a year trying to figure out this IM stuff for the first time in October 2009 I made over 200$+ a day for about 5 days straight.
Before this success I made some money but I was spending more money then I was making.
For months I would just spend money on products or some kind of software that promised to make my life easier and do all the work for me if I would just push the magic button. Anyway I was about ready to give up on IM when I got this strange little email that was so ridiculous it was funny.
I will never forget it was mid August and this person was saying how much money they made the year before selling Halloween costumes. The more I read the funnier it got but for some reason I decided to do some more checking on the topic, because I know my kids love Halloween so much and they always bug me about the latest and greatest costumes. So I begin thinking of a few ideas and started thinking maybe just maybe selling Halloween costumes would work.
I begin searching for affiliate programs and building Squidoo sites and I waited and nothing, no sales, no hits nothing at all.
So I decided to start over and build blogs instead of Web2.0 sites. I knew I had to get my keywords right and try to rank for words I could get on page one. After days of trying different things I finally came up with the 6 step for keyword research that I talked about in another post I wrote.
So I made a plan to build 30 blogs. I did all my keyword research and purchased about 15 domains .com .org .net domain names and I started to build my blogs.
After about building 15 sites using simple backling no tricks or anything just some hard work, not one of my sites showed up in the rankings or very little traffic was coming to those sites.
I was about to give up when I went back to the drawing board and perfected the way I was doing my keyword research. So I begin to build the other 15 sites, it took me a while to complete them but I finally got them all up with unique content, cloaked affiliate links, adsense, backlinks, headers etc..
It was about the end of August early September when I completed all of my sites and to be honest with you I didn't think much about it I just assumed nothing would happen until one day I decided to checked my CJ account. I will never forget the first time I saw the amount in my account it was over $400 and I just assumed it was a mistake until I started digging deeper into my account and realized that all the sales came from the last 15 Halloween blogs that I had created.
The closer it got to Halloween the more money I was making, it was almost like buying stocks waking up each day to see how much money I had made for that day. Around the second week in October I begin to make over $200 a day and I did that for about 5 days straight.
I was so happy I thought I finally did it my first $200 day. To this day I still am making money from those 15 sites of course it's not $200 a day but for sites I don't even touch anymore it still is amazing.
What I have learned is that this method of building little niche sites if you have the right buyer keywords will work for "Christmas Bulbs" "Valentines Day E-Cards" CPA offer and all the major Holidays that people just go crazy over. You just have to find products that people are searching for and wanting to buy.
So thank goodness for that funny little email that I thought was so hilarious and full of crap. Now I can build a blog and have it up and running and indexed in no time.
And the blogs that I build are so simple and plain, but that doesn't matter when you find rabbit buyers. I use to take hours tweaking my blogs with fancy themes, plugins, header etc etc. Now I just build them as plain add a few plugins do some tweaking and I'm done. Later I might go back once the site proves to me it will make money and fix it up a little.
The point is guys no matter what method you fallow or what you do just get some content on the web, build your own blogs or even Web2.0 sites if your money is tight.
But take action and find something that works and is profitable for you and scale it up big time.
Thank you for your time and for reading my story.
Thanks Warrior Forum I have learned so much from so many people on here and putting me on the right track.
