A powerful income stream that I’ve added to my repertoire over the last 2 years or so, is niche blogging primarily focusing on Google Adsense.
Using the power of focusing on a targeted niche, I’m able to use niche blogging to share my knowledge of my niche products albeit to a smaller audience and yet mostly these are sometimes buying frenzy customers. That’s where as an online publisher I fill the gap in what they are searching for, and provide a means to end this search of theirs. A feel good situation don’t you think?
While I started as an Internet Marketer at heart — I got started through the world’s #1 super affiliate Ewen Chia, niche blogging has been surprisingly effective I’ve found, if implemented correctly.
For starters, it helps if you are patient and follow a proven plan from someone who has done it. If you found a mentor to help you, well that would be great too; otherwise your learning curve won’t be that pretty. The road is bumpy at best and you’d face many road blocks at worst.
Most importantly though, the master or Adsense guru whom you have found must have done niche blogging successfully for many years and know what he’s talking about when he imparts his knowledge to you and other followers through his blueprint, which may be in the form of an ebook, a well publicized seminar or one-to-one coaching.
There’s equally a lot of information and misinformation on the subject of monetization in Google Adsense, but a couple of people worth paying serious attention to are John James Robinsion (XFactor) and Lisa Parmley both on the popular internet marketing forum, the Warrior Forum.
John James Robinson earns over $30,000 a month solely from Google Adsense, and Lisa Parmley makes an easy $15,000 a month. Both follow a proven system.
Not exactly small change.
XFactor recommends making authority sites and teaches “how to make more money” with less sites & less headaches’. Even though he still owns hundreds of micro niche adsense sites it is with a difference though. His micro niche adsense sites now have grown really big – to more than hundred pages per site.
XFactor is now a household name in Internet Marketing circles and a well established Google Adsense guru. But the one statement that probably made people stop to think about taking actions seems to be what he said in his ebook “Adsense Master Course”-The Authority Site Adsense Guide:
“I have made decisions and changes based on what I enjoy doing, not just sticking to one thing because it works. And you should do the same! If you “connect” mentally with the idea of lots of smaller sites, then by all means, stick with it. Go after micro niches (keywords) with little-to-no competition, as outlined in my old course. However, If you are like me and have evolved into bigger and better things (or want to) and would prefer to manage maybe 1, 2 or up to 10 websites (at most) that each have the potential to earn $100 or more per day, then follow this new course.” Check out what people say about his course in Warrior Forum.
Here is what John has to say about what you can expect to get our of his course:
Lisa on the other hand only has about 20 sites earning her big money but she found that CPA offers help to beef up the Adsense income even more. You can listen to an interview she gave to Mark Thompson titled “$0-$10,000 in 12 Months – An Interview with Lisa Parmley to get an inside scoop as to how she pulls it off.
Some of the things Lisa embraced especially in post Panda updates that has worked well for her are:
“…I’ve also spent a great deal of time talking about how you need UNIQUE content for your sites. This is something I noticed made an impact even as far back as 5 years ago. It’s even more important now. …”
“…I’m not getting penalized by the search engines simply because I’m building sites with value. No algorithm change will EVER be directed toward sites that offer value. So if you get that right, you will always come out ahead in the long run…”
Lisa’s latest Step-By-Step Training Course makes it so easy to Build a True Authority Site That Will Help Cement Your Rankings & Your Income.
It’s all put together in a very easy-to-use online training center. Here’s a screenshot of what that your authority site will look like after the training…
She hates wading through a ton of information that’s just thrown together, so she made sure this course is structured in an ordered and progressive manner.
Final Take-Away Tip
With all said about following a proven method from your favorite Adsense mentor, you have to be realistic about how well you will do even if you follow the blueprint to the T. That’s because there are many other factors that will slow you down and you have to always update yourself in order to stay profitable. Think Panda update, Google algorithm changes as just a couple.
Here’s a screenshot of how I am getting on in my Google Adsense (Nov/Dec 2011) after having followed the XFactor’s Adsense Master Course for 2 years, and yours truly at work.
