So several months ago (well... maybe 6 months ago) I found myself with over 20 websites, all of which I was maintaining. And I'm no full-time Internet marketer! At that point I was in college and doing all sorts of random things... my online business was just a side thing.
Realizing I was in way over my head with work, I sold them. All of them! All except the one project I wanted to start and take off - my PLR shop. Selling the other websites - most of which were affiliate sites - provided a nice pay day for me to put some cash into the site and get it running. This has been my main project for a couple months now and it's coming along very well. Everything is going wonderfully.
But on my trip to China (where I've been for the past 2 weeks) I started thinking of all sorts of random projects and whatnot.
First, I've been thinking about offering a low-cost mentoring program. I know a lot of people are struggling and want to become their own boss - become an online entrepreneur - but things simply aren't working. They also don't have $697 a month to get a mentor, let alone even $97 for many. After all, the economy isn't the best at the moment. I thought offering something in the $37-67 range may provide me some enjoyment as I do love helping people, and some cash on the side as well (even though I do start a full-time job this upcoming Tuesday... but I will still have lots of free time).
Second, I (on my round trip, 16 hour flight - yes - 16 hours both ways) started sketching up some guides. They're only on aspects of Internet marketing that I know a lot about and have been immersed in for some time now. For example, email marketing, list building, affiliate marketing, and product review sites.
I was thinking something along the lines of "25 Tips To _____", and taking the knowledge I've learned and providing it to Warriors for a small lump sum. Maybe the e-Book for $4.97, or something like that. Certainly no more than $6.97 (don't make fun of my .97 obsession). There's 8 of these guides total, but I can't see myself completing them too quickly... perhaps 1 per month... or 1 per 3 weeks. I actually have to write up short, to-the-point sales pages for them.
So all of this is a lot. Full-time job, moving into my first apartment in a couple weeks (hey, I'm only 22!), writing PLR, and now getting distracted with these other online ideas (mentoring and the products bound to become WSOs).
I can do it though. At least I think I can. I don't feel burned out or anywhere close to it. I find myself rejuvenated, lively, and motivated.
Do I quit while I'm ahead? Do I stick only with my PLR shop? I know getting distracted is bad. I just want to do more! I feel like I have more than enough free time to do all of the above.
I guess writing this up made me realize I CAN do it... perhaps I just needed to vent. Or maybe one of you need to slap some sense into me.
Wow, you read this entire rant? For that, I thank you.
