I spoke about building a foundation, and I'm going to tell you how you can't fail at making money.
What you will need:
A decent domain name
A decent theme
A niche that's profitable
A good product to promote
A well written freebie
That's your FOUNDATION.
The next part gets a little funny, but just try to follow along.
You send a little traffic to your site using any traffic method.
You keep testing the opt-in box until you get a decent conversion.
You then move onto the follow-up messages and play about with them until you get a good open rate.
You then make an offer and play about with the copy until you get a good conversion.
You then look for better ways to drive traffic (to a sales funnel that's already converting).
You then start focusing your content on what the readers want.
THIS IS NOW A MACHINE!
You have a FOUNDATION, but you can focus on each part individually until your making the money you want:
You already have a converting blog and you just play about with each part to make more money. Eventually you can add more products into the funnel and your profits will accumulate.
But you need that FOUNDATION.
