Hi, would you guys please take a look at my plan and see what you think? Thanks.

1. Create a blog (IM niche)
2. Write lots of helpful articles with no affiliate links only with email capture forms.
4. For each article create a YouTube video and post to Facebook, Twitter and Google+
5. After I've published around 30-50 articles on my blog do some product reviews to start making money.

Along the way I'd be building a list and I might also monetize my site with Adsense, should I? Or does it make the site look spammy?

All the articles would be 500 words+ search engine optimized and have headlines and images and a YouTube video embedded in the article.

After my blog has made some money and carry on to do this I'd outsource all the link building on all the articles, I was thinking of using a service in this forum called White hat SEO solutions, here's a link and if anyone knows any better service would they also please tell me? http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...0-network.html

    It looks like a solid plan.
    Just know that it will take a lot of hard work to break into the IM niche.
    As for the SEO, there are a bunch of quality SEO services. What I try to do is keep it natural with a high diversity of links.

      Adsense is always an ok option for monetization.
      The Service you mentioned looks good as well but a little pricy in my oppinion.

          Solid plan.

          One thing I'd like to add is, you can actually do reviews on different things within the IM world, like reviews on IM products right from the get-go.
          Just make sure to create videos on youtube and keep adding content to your channel regularly (weekly/bi-weekly/monthly).

          That way you will actually rank within youtube itself, which can make SEO a bit more redundant ;-)

          Sorry, I can't really recommend you any services since I don't use any (I've got my own team)

          Just remember to keep link diversity and try to do as much as you can yourself if you want to save money.

    You won't make much money doing this. It's pretty much the standard plan to make money in these parts, but everyone here is broke so take that as a hint.

    Looking at their WSO, they are running a comment spam program to get your links out there. Google will hammer you for this and then the guy you bought the links from will blame it on changes at Google. We see this same story again and again and again from these SEO bozos. Then of course with all of the spammy links out there, your site is basically dead moving forward because you can't possibly remove the links. If you are going to use a service like this, do so for a site you don't mind abandoning when Google hammers it.

      The first part you mentioned, what else do you think I should do to make more money as you said I won't really make that much money.

      For the second part, is there any SEO service you recommend?

        Have you ever made any money on the Internet?

        I'm only asking because your website doesn't look like it has any helpful articles. It looks like the same generic advice on every other me-too blog.

        What did you do when you began learning Internet marketing?

        Can you honestly say you'd give your blog a second glance once you stumbled onto something like Smart Passive Income or Warrior Forum?

          If you ask me that's an unfair question. On the Warrior Forum you can ask any questions you want and it can be answered.

          It's not possible to write articles covering EVERY single question people want to find out.

            It's not an unfair question and ignoring it could be catastrophic.

            If you don't think people will become regulars of your site, why do you think you can build a successful business out of it?

            I'd seriously think about it. I'm just putting it out there because it seems everybody else is trying to convince you it's the best plan in the world and I strongly disagree.

              Ok, so what would you recommend I change with the plan? Create higher quality articles? Spend more time creating them?

                I can't tell you that.

                Something I would recommend if you were set on tackling the IM niche is to tackle a certain sub-niche with total focus.

                Whether that's list building, copywriting, Youtube videos, or anything that's totally focused.

                Don't just create another me-too blog.

                Become the master at something. Make it so if people want to learn about Youtube videos they come to you. If someone wants to know everything about Facebook marketing you're the man.

                If you can provide excellent value in something exact then you will have much higher conversions when you bring out a premium product.

                  Great advice. You should focus on a sub-niche and offer more than just helpful articles. Create how-to videos, do interviews with other experts, create a podcast, set up a free course, etc. You REALLY have to stick out in IM or else you'll look like an also-ran.

        Get a site going with awesome content that people want to visit frequently. Content is king. It may take 6 months or 3 years. Constantly be asking yourself if you are giving people a reason to spend less time at the big players and more time on your site. With greater traffic comes greater ad revenues.

        Yes, Google. If you've got great content, Google is on your side and you don't need an SEO service to game the system. Much of this forum talks about using SEO services because their sites are lackluster and will never rank on their own. Don't be one of them. Put the extra effort into things.

    Where's your link building or do you not care about search engine traffic?

    I've never ever found a good SEO service. In 3 of years of trying.

        Yes I know, and I also said I haven't found a good provider yet.

        You have to understand that SEOs add value. Get that? For continued business, they must make their clients money, or provide some other ROI.

        Now, if you're an SEO, and a business man... why the hell would you provide value for others? You'd just rank your own sites right?

        There are exceptions of course.... but that's what they are, EXCEPTIONS.

        Now call me a hypocrit, because I do have clients, but I don't take anyone on for less than $500 per month. One client pays me $3000 per month. I only did it because my girlfriend at the time said I should "diversify" to be safe.

        But anyway, maybe you'll find someone good, but you'd have to be VERY lucky. Like I said I've tried 100 providers in 3 years and spent many thousands of dollars. I don't even try anymore I've learned if you want to get something done, you gotta do it yourself.

        If your outsourcers screw up, will you even understand why or how?

    Unfortunately, it sounds like the same plan that most newbies have. Build an IM blog whether they know much about it or not and disregarding that there's already a million of them and that the niche is dominated by some very big names.

    Do some keyword research. Learn to find niches that aren't as saturated as far away from the Make Money Online market as possible.

    Another thing - you should enable monetization for your YouTube channel so you'll earn a bit of money for people who view your videos.

    It frustrates me a little when people try to put you off the IM niche.... if that's the case we don't need anymore electricians or plumbers! I say carry on, you have a great plan. As you get into it your path may change, you will meet people along the way, new ventures will open up, and before you know it you may have multiple sites on the go. I use my blog purely as a way to communicate some ideas. It is not my main online income but I get great pleasure in running it.....
