Setting Up Mini Sites As a Business Model – Part Fourteen in a Website Business Template Series
Setting up mini sites as your website model of choice has become extremely popular and is possible being pushed as an easy way to make money online. Do not be fooled as with any business setting up and running fifty or one hundred mini sites is perhaps one of the more difficult ways of getting an income from the internet. There are a lot of products that you can buy online that will teach you a bunch of similar ways to set up “cash-grabbing” micro or mini sites.
The concept is very simple – what you do is a bunch of keyword research and niche research to find that tightly targeted spot online that is not that competitive and you build and leave a small website for those specific keyword searchers. Now the guys that have in fact actually made a success from this very type of marketing will readily admit that only about 40% of their websites ever actually make them money, and very often these sites are chugging along at a very small income. The entire point to this form of web based business is to create hundreds of tightly targeted websites that all stand or fall independently and eventually you will have a consistent income.
I have a suspicion that my cynicism is creeping through and is visible in my tone here in this report. I should explain. I have built a few of these websites myself, and if you do them correctly they can make you consistent money. My real complaint goes to these guys that promote their products to us, and tend to make it all sound so much easier than it really is.
They will run promotions that tell you that you will be able to set up a mini site in two hours, and using this system would get to 100 new websites a month, and if they are to be believed you will be making an average of R2000 ($240) per website per month. Well perhaps they are capable of doing that but I have to tell you that I am experienced at setting up these types of websites and I personally have found that they need at least two days of work to give them enough “meat” to stand all alone out there online.
So finally if you read between all the lines that I have gone over here, I do agree that if you put in at least two days of solid work per mini site and you have done your keyword research properly then you might stand a chance of achieving a network of income generating mini sites. If you do not start to use underhand tools or tactics to punt your websites online you should be in a position to gain a decent footprint online.
One word of warning, the future of the internet is fast becoming one where real and high quality content will be the most highly ranked item and if you keep putting copy and paste stuff up you will eventually fail. Be careful, rather go slower and put original and good quality content onto your websites.
