If you have patience, you will see results.
True story and I'll make it real quick.
In 2006, I got a hold of a domain related to natural health products. At first
I was gung ho about it but quickly lost interest. I wrote 122 articles (last
one in 2008) and that was the last thing I ever did for this domain and site.
Now mind you, this is one of the most competitive niches on the planet...health
And I was doing close to nothing with it.
My income model?
Some Adsense and a few affiliate products on a products page.
At the beginning, I'd get a few EZA views per day and it was cool.
Fast forward to this year. Mind you, I've not touched this domain in 2 years.
I am getting more views from my 122 articles per day than I get from my
over 2,000 Internet Marketing articles per day by DOUBLE.
My traffic has increased by 20% this year.
My Adsense income has doubled monthly.
I am now getting affiliate product sales every week like clockwork.
I haven't touched this damn domain in 2 years folks!
My point is, if you build something, even if it's in the most competitive
niche imaginative and do very little with it, the mere fact that you've been
around for a while (4 years now for this site) will bring you steady visitors.
Imagine what you could do if you actually WORKED on your business.
Had I put the time and effort into this site that I should have, who knows
what I could have turned it into, but as I said, I just lost interest.
I still have articles getting over 1,000 views each month that I wrote
4 years ago.
All of this is easily verifiable.
No, I'm not making a fortune from the site. In fact, what I make in a month
from it is about what I make in 2 days from the IM niche.
But this has become TOTALLY PASSIVE INCOME for me.
I don't even remember the last time I looked at my home page, as ugly
as it is.
Yes, the site is an eyesore and it STILL gets traffic and makes Adsense
and affiliate income.
I honestly believe that you'd literally have to try to screw up NOT to make
any money online. If this site and what I've done with it isn't living proof
of that then nothing is.
Okay, so do something. If it isn't a total nightmare and you put even just
a little effort into it, yeah, it might take 4 freaking years, but you might
actually start to see some money coming in.
Do that with 10 sites and you've got a full time monthly income if you
can make just $600 a month from each site.
No, it's NOT that hard.
And I've proven it.
So get off your butt and stop making excuses for not making money
because you don't have a killer product or killer authority site.
You don't need one.
And I proved it...in the health niche no less.
