How to Build $1,000 a Month Niche Minisites

If you’ve been planning to build highly profitable niche websites, or looking for ways to squeeze additional profit from your already successful ones, you might’ve seen Matt Coddington (AKA Feroz) posts in WickedFire’s “How to Start a Niche Minisite” thread.

His posts have already received just about 1,200 diggs.

Although purist bloggers with “altruistic intentions” might label it a ‘spammy digg’, it certainly will be very useful and instructional for niche minisite builders.
Matt goes through the process of keyword research, content development, monetization techniques and takes questions on his system.

He goes through start-to-finish for a niche site focused on the “Red Steel” game for the Nintendo Wii game system.

While a pure newbie might have difficulty implementing this system, online marketers with about 6 months under their belt ought to be able to take this system and run with it.

The key is to have a system in place and think through the process. It’s tempting to just implement one strategy, but if you stop and think for a moment and develop a turnkey strategy, including possibly an email list, you could multiple your revenue stream several times.

Matt’s system would be very complementary to the Travis’ bum marketing method or the social traffic generation strategies I use. In fact, you’re constrained only by your own imagination.

I’ve seen (and bought) info products which have contained less information than what Matt shares and they were priced in the $29 to $97 range.

I don’t quite understand Matt’s intentions, but it’s certainly good link bait.

What’s the income potential from Matt’s strategies?

If you’re able to develop your own sites and implement a number of them successful, I’d think being able to generate $1,000 monthly on a consistent basis is highly achieveable if you have a cluster of 5 highly targeted niche sites.

Over time, an optimized indexed niche minisite, could generate $1,000 a month consistently.

Once you’ve got your core sites stabilized and understand the dynamics of traffic generation, basic SEO and monetization, it’s merely a process of “rinse and repeat” for your other 100 minisites.

Here’re the links to Matt’s posts:

    Matt will probably make more money out of AdSense and affeliate links in his two dugg posts talking about the minisite, than from minisite itself. The domain is actually listed for sale, expected price – $200 http://whois.domaintools.com/go/?sedo=redsteel.co.uk

    Reguardless, what are your thoughts on this Andrew? I’ve got suckered in by the idea, and already have a site in mind… but the niche is _so_ specialized and small, it will probably be more for fun and education than earning back the domain registration fee. We’ll see.

    That is a great post. I hadn’t seen the information about his posts before. I’m going to run off to read them.

    Thanks for posting about my minisite articles, Andrew. About my intentions, I basically wrote this article to give my blog (which was just started on the 7th of Jan) a boost in traffic. I probably could have stretched this tutorial into a lengthy eBook and marketed it, but the value in having such a jump start to my new blog is much greater in my opinion :)

    @Tony -
    The domain was listed for sale undeveloped. Now that it’s developed (not to mention the main subject of the tutorial) it’s not for sale.
