Niche-Focus Experiment Update: WOW!

Niche Focus Experiment Update

So, a couple of months ago, I did something really brave: I decided to go cold-turkey on my whole “multiple niche” approach to life (and blogging). 

I decided I’d spend 30 days focusing only on a single niche that had been sort of assigned to me by the universe.

The problem is that you eventually have to transfer your list to a paid model with more capabilities and no intrusive advertisements that you’ll have to compete with when you email from a free autoresponder. Many marketers choose to use Aweber. This tool is affordable when you pay for it, but the first month has a nice $1 trial fee and it’s just $19 a month after that if you decide to continue on with it. Continue Reading →

You know, because your blog is so beautiful. But if you don’t know how to create content that helps you convert your blog into a profitable platform, then you’d better be happy with being a “hobby” blogger – no money’s going to come your way. So before we get started, know you truly don’t need to be an official expert to become a respected authority in your niche. Nobody is expecting you to have a PhD, unless you claim that you do.
