Last week, Pat from Smart Passive Income launched the Niche Site Duel 2.0. The first time he launched the Niche Site Duel, he ended-up building a site earning over $2,000 per month. To date, his site has earned over $50,000…
At that time, I was reading his journey to build his niche website and I was lazy. The idea of building a niche was super interesting. Imagine making money passively for the rest of your life! Isn’t that something that resonates with you? It does with me anyways! But I gave this project the effort I normally used to watch a good movie; I sit back, relax, eat some Doritos and wait until the movie finishes thinking “wow… that was cool”. End of the story. So I read the whole thing, gave it some thought, but never went further.
The idea is the same: create a resourceful site generating traffic….and money. The difference is my level of motivation in successfully creating a site generating money. I want to go through the entire process for once and see where I can go with that.
I’ve always been very good at studying and completing my exams successfully. After all, I was able to do an MBA while doing my CFP at the same time. The only thing it requires from me is focus. That’s the magic word. This is what is different with the 2.0 challenge: I truly want to be all-in this time.
I’ve failed to join challenge 1.0.
I jumped on other projects before I completed my authority website.
I won’t make the same mistake again this time.
I’m using two simple strategies to boost my accountability level:
#1 I’ve asked my partner and VA for support to do this (this implies I will need to tell them to stop working on this if I fail!)
#2 I already spent $100 in a single day to build my niche site. Money spent is probably the biggest motivator for me as I hate to lose money.
The $100 was spent to buy software for keyword research (Long Tail Pro Platinum) and the rest of the money was used to purchase two books on Amazon about the topic I want to write about (SECRET!!!!).
I’ve already done a lot during my last day of blogging. In fact, I spent the whole day working on this!
Step #1 was learning the complete process of niche site building. I’m not the best at keyword research so I spent roughly two hours to learn more about this topic. I watched tutorials (the Long Tail Pro tutorials are awesome), read some articles and started practicing! Among the resources I used, here are the most amazing ones:
Long Tail Pro Tutorials
Following many pros’ advice, I’m now convinced that my niche site has the potential of A) getting traffic and B) making money. Now it’s only a matter of building the site!
In a few days, I’ll receive both books and read them thoroughly, study my topic and start to write articles about it. My domain, design, keyword research, 50 posts ideas are all completed. I’ll share more about this new project of mine in a few months. I first want to make sure I can make it on my own and see how it goes.
If this site is making the money I think it could make, this will be the beginning of a whole new business model for my online empire.
This time, I’m going all-in, will you give it a try?Google+
