How to Build a Niche Site That Brings in at Least $500/Month ?
How many times have you thought about (or even started) building a niche website with dreams of making thousands of dollars in passive income each month?
If you’re like most people trying to make a living on the internet, the thought has probably crossed your mind at least once, if not thousands of times.
For me, this idea of the niche site is one of the most fascinating anomalies on the internet. It’s one of the hardest, yet stupidly easy things you can do online.
The steps to building a successful site that pulls in at least $500 a month are extremely straight forward, yet most people come at it from an angle of trying to game the system – they’ve lost before they even reached the starting line.
Sure, there are people out there who make hundreds of thousands of dollars off crappy niche sites and products – but most of them have some serious technical, spam, and SEO skills that let’s face it, we don’t have.
So we’ve gotta come up with a better way, you know, one that actually helps people.
