Lately I’ve been reading quite a few AIS (Automated Income Stream) and Adsense blogs (such as PMPR, BuildingMyEmpire, 45n5, Osworld and Nothing Ventured). All these sites talk about how they have content sites which they leave on autopilot and which normally feature some sort of monetization. Most of the time, these people use Adsense, and if they have 100 or so sites earnings on average $1 per day, this can result in a nice healthy living from doing not much work at all.
Naturally, I wanted to try my hand in this form of passive income, and so I decided to use an old domain name to conjure up a fresh new site made using a template.
Introducing Teentrepreneur! This site aims to help young, teenage entrepreneurs (like myself) find their feet online with a selection of helpful Articles, Biographies on other famous young moguls and quotes from the mouths of many a top earner. My aim is to reach the top of Google rankings for the term “Teenage Entrepreneur“, and hopefully that won’t be too hard as my domain name is pretty well optimized for this.
SEO or search engine optimization is an obvious point which I will hope to improve on as time goes by. As this is a passive income site, my only traffic will come from the search engines, and so my site must be well suited for bots and crawlers and should boast a wealth of information for the users. I’ve made use of title tags, meta descriptions and a clear navigation.
At the moment, as well as the site not being completely finished, it also contains an Adsense link unit in the sidebar and some banners further down. These have been strategically placed and this is a topic which I’ll focus a whole post on later on to show you how exactly I produce my HTML pages.
There are quite a few routes and paths that I am able to follow and these include:
- Littering the site with Adsense ads. Hopefully as they are well positioned, they should attract quite a high amount of clicks resulting in a good CPR. However, I know the niche and its not a big payer for clicks, so Im not expecting too much if any!
- Using Affiliate links to link to (for example) Richard Branson’s autobiography at Amazon. I also hope to signup to CJ or Clickbank to make use of their ebook affiliate offers. I know they pay quite a healthy sum of money per conversion so it wouldn’t be wise not to try it.
- Finally I’ve heard quite a lot about site flipping. Khalid in particular flips numerous sites after hand building them for hundreds of dollars. Apparently, I would have to wait 3 to 4 months for my site to have sufficient search engine credibility before I sell it, but nevertheless, the profit margin sounds almost too good to be true with minimal work.
As usual I will keep you informed of my progress and any tips or tricks which I happen to use. At the moment Im just hoping that I can learn the ins and outs of AIS, and Teentrepreneur.com will put me in good stead!
