Using George Brown’s blueprint to create tiny little virtual earners…
… and then stacking lots of these babies on top of one another, is cool.
But, you all know what’s even cooler?
Having just one or two MONSTER affiliate sites that reel in job-replacing income all by themselves.
Now, I’ll be the first to admit – both options have their own unique set of pros and cons.
Creating small websites is fast and fairly easy to scale, especially when you learn about outsourcing.
However, it can become a pain in the butt to manage all of these sites, as each new website needs awesome content and proper promotion.
For the average affiliate, I feel as though it’s putting too much on your plate to try and build out more than 1 or 2 websites at a time.
In addition, the way Google’s been acting lately has me convinced that it will only get harder and harder to stay afloat relying on small sniper sites.
That doesn’t mean you can’t profit with this system – but I do encourage you to focus your efforts on building larger authority sites that leverage the same basic principles you’ll learn inside GS3.0.
On top of being safer…
… having just 1 or 2 “home run” sites will make your life much easier in terms of management.
You can place 100% of your labor into making those websites as great as is humanly possible, as opposed to spreading yourself thin with lots of lower quality affiliate blogs.
Each authority site you create will be worth much more than a comparable site built with a “bare minimum” mindset.
It’s like working a little harder and a little longer to end up with a $5 million dollar mansion, instead of rushing around to build a dilapidated 1-bedroom apartment.
Clearly, you could rent out or sell the mansion for a LOT more money than you could the apartment.
And yet, most affiliates are fighting like cats and dogs to grow their rundown apartment portfolio.
Know what I’m saying’ here?
So, assuming you’re picking up what I’m putting down…
… you may be asking yourself how the heck you even go about building your virtual mansion…
Surprisingly, the steps to creating a six figure beast-of-an-affiliate site aren’t all that complicated.
I believe in keeping things ridiculously simple, so no need to make a mountain out of a molehill here…
First, it’s paramount to enter into a niche or sub-niche that you’re knowledgeable and passionate about.
For example, my friend Matt niched-down to become the dude who helps personal trainers make more money online.
Well, a larger sites means more killer content.
Try writing tons of blog posts on something you need to research just to stretch an idea into a few hundred words.
By going with an area of expertise, you can simply log in to your WordPress blog and start spewing out straight venom without much effort.
In the end it feels a heck of a lot less like work and more like ‘good times.’
This leads to better content, more regularly and a more optimistic attitude towards completing the required (daily) heavy lifting, if you will.
Now, I’m assuming you combine what I just said with a little commonsense and select a topic that has an adequate amount of buyer traffic that will spend money once they navigate onto your site.
After you’ve got your passion plus profit big idea (aka your core subject matter for the larger sniper site you’re about to create), it’s time to get to work.
I recommend spending 80% of your allotted time towards blanketing that blog with as much insanely valuable, jaw-dropping, “O-M-G, I can’t believe homeboy just shared that for free!” type content as your little fingers can type.
The other 20%?
Ethical, above-board, white hat promoting that’s truly carried out as a means to publicly announce your website, grow your brand, drive targeted buyers… and then, yes, indirectly do yourself a ‘ranking favor’ thanks to the resulting links you’ll have built.
Good. So, what’s next?
Drum roll please…
NOTHING. Except for rinsing and repeating the above stupid-simple 2-step process. Seriously, that’s really all there is to it.
I realize it’s far from sexy and it calls for lots of manual work.
And for that, I don’t apologize.
Building $100,000+ (per year) affiliate sites ain’t easy.
If it were, as they say, everyone would be doing it.
So roll up those sleeves and get crackin’ on your online mansion, and quit with the double-wide trailers and beat-down apartment buildings in the projects.
Until next time, focus on doing what your competitors can’t do or aren’t willing to do.
