I just wanted to share with you a quick story.
Maybe it will inspire some of you to take action.
Yesterday was my highest adsense earnings day of $5.
I know It's not much by any means but I also know there are a lot of warriors out there who are yet to have their first $5 day with adsense.
The story of how I got that $5 is quite interesting I think.
I made it with just 1 website. I don't have a hundred micro niche sites.
So here's the story:
I had this 1 website I built around a certain keyword to promote a few CPA offers. I built the website, wrote 2-3 articles myself that sucked a lot because I knew nothing about the niche. They were basically promotions for the offers and I built some links and left the site. As time passed the site got ranked high by itself. It's now #2 in google for it's main keyword which is getting about 3000 searches a month. So i'm getting a little bit of traffic but unfortunately for some reason I'm seeing no conversions, I think the keyword is not that targeted and my site sux, too. I don't think I'm giving people what they expect because it has 86% bounce back rate which is not good at all..
So a year passed and this site was not making me any money and domain was expiring, but the site is getting some traffic about 800 uniques a month. So I decided before I let it expire to slap some adsense ads on it first and see what happens. To my surprise the site started making some money and yesterday was my highest day. I was pleasantly surprised to see I made $5 while sleeping from a site I thought was dead.
$5 is not a lot for most people, but that's still enough to cover the cost of 1 article. So my almost failed project now turned into an asset. It's currently making me about $2 on average which is not a lot but it's better than nothing and now I have options. I can flip the site for I don't know at least $200 or I can add more articles to it and build it more and hopefully get more traffic and pump up its revenue.
I think I like the second option more so that's what I'm going to do. I think it's best to try to build 1 website into an authority site by taking your time instead of building 100 micro sites with no real content and value for the visitor. It's ok to start this way.. but once it's making you money why not invest it back into the site?
So what's the moral of the story?
If you take action you can't really fail.
You'll always get some results. If you focus on 1 project you'll likely make some money. It may not be as much as you hoped for but who cares. You'll have learned a lot on the way. You can flip the failed project to recoup your investment and start over but this time you'll be better because you've learned through experience. OR you can tweak it and make it better until you've achieved your desired goal.
Or maybe the site is making just 1/10th of what you wanted to make. Does that mean you failed? No, it means you'll just have to build 9 more sites like it or work harder on this one. And you'll have the confidence to do it now because after you've done it once - it means you can do it, so there's nothing stopping you from doing it again.. and again as many times as you like until you reach your goal.
So here's my advice for you if you're a newbie.
Don't quit your job until you make more money with your online business!
And here a few reasons for that:
Having a job will provide you with security and you'll be able to work on your business without worrying about paying your bills. You won't feel stressed and will be able to focus better when working on your business.
You will also have an incentive to work harder on your business(and quit your job as soon as possible.)
You'll be able to invest back all of your earnings back into your business.
Because at first your earnings will be low and if you rely on it to pay the bills your business growth will suffer and you won't allow yourself to..
So do you think you can build a site making you $2 a day if you work hard and you're focused. Of course you can. You probably already have all the info you need, having bought so many courses. Don't you?
You may have already done that but thought you failed..
Then do you think you can get that $2 a day and reinvest it and build 1 more site and grow that to $4 a day? And then reinvest that and work your system until you reach your desired income?
I made a big mistake of spending all the money I made from my online business so far. Have I had reinvest it back into my business I would've probably reached my goal many times by now..
So that's what I plan to do. From now on what I make online goes back into my business so that I build momentum and grow my business exponentially.
Adsense is an easy way to make money for beginners because you don't have to worry about conversions. Just place the ads in good positions and you'll get clicks. Then you just have to worry about getting traffic, and putting out more content. Google loves unique content and rewards it. A friend of mine has a hobby site with a lot of articles he wrote, and I'm almost sure he never built any backlinks to it but he is getting a ton of traffic. And he knows nothing about SEO either, he hasn't done any keyword research to find the best keywords to write articles about. It's just his topic ideas. It's true what they say that content is king. The more of it you have online the bigger your asset driving you traffic. More traffic = more money.
As they say internet marketing is a numbers game!
If you can make a site bringing you $1 a day you're almost half way there..
It's just about staying consistent in working your system, reinvesting the profits, building momentum, outsourcing and scaling.
That's what I think..
but I still have achieved a lot less than what I consider success and what many other warriors have. I've even witnessed some people go from zero to hero while I still struggle so..
..I should say: use my advice for entertainment purposes only.
I don't know may be I'm not qualified to give you advice and you shouldn't listen to me.. but maybe you should!
It's your choice..
Now go take some action and remember that you can't fail.
The only way to fail is to give up and I know you won't do that!
