Doug Cunnington is the founder of Niche Site Project where he writes about using project management on Amazon Affiliate sites. He’s been quoted and mentioned on sites like NeilPatel.com, Social Triggers, Backlinko, and Ahrefs.
Doug’s journey into developing niche websites began listening to Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn. Prior to listening to the podcast, he didn’t know you could generate money online.
Within 6 weeks of listening to the podcast, Doug launched his first WordPress site.
One of the keys to creating success online is generating your first dollar. Once you’ve accomplished this, you can do so over and over again.
In the beginning, his goal was to simply make a few dollars per day. It should be noted that when you first begin marketing online, it is best to build sites on topics that you are passionate about. You will create them faster, and the content will generate better rapport with readers as it is something you know about.
When you decide to venture into the world of online marketing, it is vital to have thick skin. As your popularity grows, the more you will receive criticism from people.
A great website to leverage for building affiliate sites around is Amazon as it has a large variety of products to choose from. In building a site, you want to focus on terms that receive ample search volume on products that have a price point $80 or higher. To find products to build sites around, look for ones that have a large number of reviews. The more reviews the better.
With the growing popularity of voice search, you will want to build your sites around answering questions that people have. This is an often overlooked aspect of search engine optimation by marketers.
When you decide to venture into marketing via niche profit sites you will want to commit to a min of 6 months as it can take time for your sites to rank within search.
The One Thing Dog recommends is to utilize SMART goals and know your why. When you know what your destination is, you will be able to identify what specific actions you must take consistently to achieve them.
