Variety Is The Spice Of life

By Mark / August 20, 2008

Whoops, it’s been 7 days since I last posted I can’t believe how time flies when you are engrossed in the olympics. Here in spain most of the action happens between 2 am and 5 Pm so as a sports fan my body clock has been thrown into chaos.

I’ve been enthralled by the performances of Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt and the British Cycling Team although I have to say calling Phelps the Greatest Olympian of all time is a bit premature, yes without a doubt he is the greatest swimmer of all time but people like Jesse Owens and Carl Lewis who won medals in multiple events or Olympians like Sir Steve redgrave who won 5 gold medals over 5 different Olympics probably have a greater claim to the title of greatest olympian.

I bet you are wondering how I can link the Olympic greats to Internet marketing..easy! It’s all about variety.The greatest olympians are the ones who take part in a variety of events. Just like that the most sucessful marketers are constantly trying new things. It’s very easy to get caught in the trap of creating the same types of sites all the time. I’ve spent months building the same type of affiliate blogs and before that the same types of adsense sites. They work so why change them? Well by changing you find more efficient methods of working and more profitable types of sites.

Last month I decided to try something completly new, I forgot about trying to rank #1 in google, I didn’t add my new sites to social bookmarking sites. In fact I didn’t do any additional promotion at all apart form post articles to ezinearticles. Each site took me about 10 minutes to complete and i don’t think I’ve spent more than 15 minutes on the sites since I made them.

This is what I did…

  1. Used my rapid Niche research method to identify a busy niche.
  2. Created a simple 1 page site with free tips on it and monetized it
  3. Outsourced 10 Articles
  4. Posted Articles To EzineArticles

That was it , nothing more, here are my stats from ezinearticles for the pen name I used..

This first site isn’t the most profitable site but at around a month old it has still earned me over $100, which puts it in profit. Not bad for a site that hasn’t yet been optimized and has has less than 30 minutes spent on it.

So go and try something new it might work , and it might not. But if you are like me you’ll learn more from your failures than your sucesses.

Mark,

You mention your rapid niche research method. What is that? It would be nice if you let us know where to find out about it, even if it is part of the”secrets” you sell.

I believed I’ve mentioned it before. It involves going to sites like ezinearticles and seeing which new articles are popular.
