Make Money with Niche Websites: Part 1 – Introduction

Does the idea of some steady daily income from a website that you can basically build and then forget about sound good to you? I thought it would. That is the basic goal of building a niche content website, and my next few posts are going to help you to setup your own.

Now I’m not saying that you’re going to start of making thousands of dollars a month without any effort, this will require some work on your part, but once you get your first site up and making money, you can leave that one and start working on the next site. With each site that you add to your portfolio, the more your monthly income will increase because each site is adding a small passive income.

The concept is pretty simple, do some research and find a focused and potentially profitable niche. Then setup a simple website, write some articles that focus on that niche to give it some content and add in some well placed AdSense advertisements (or something similar). And then all you have to do is build up some targeted traffic to your site, and let the advertising revenue roll in.

Now how much money can you make doing something like this? A niche website isn’t going to make buckets of money all by its self, but this is where building portfolio of niche sites is useful, because each one is bringing in that small passive income, that when added together, adds up to some nice extra income. If you do your research, a site that is bringing in $2-$5/ day in ad revenue can be considered a success. Once you’ve built your first site, and it’s bringing in some revenue, you then move onto the next. And since these sites require little or no maintenance, it’s just all about selecting a profitable niche, filling it with content, and leaving it.

In order to make this work, you’re going to need to chose a niche, and target keywords that you are confident will give you some good search engine traffic, this is where you will get the majority of your visitors, and hopefully the majority of your ad clicks. You’re not going to try to get repeat visitors, because that would mean that you would need to add new content, and that is going to be to much work. Also, repeat visitors are often less likely to click on an advertisement, they are there because of the content and often tune out the ads that you have placed.

I will go into more details about how to chose your niche and keywords in my next update.
