Actually, yes. I have created a new problem solving model called C.U.R.E Problem Solving ™ 4 Easy Steps found at me site http://daderonan.com and I was planning on using it to address a new niche site for me on nutrition. I am also a big Football fan and seeing that it is #3 on your list makes me think about how I could leverage my problem solving system to Football.
I get dozens of emails everyday, because of all the lists I’ve subscribed to. Not only do I open yours, but I click through to read the rest of your blog post. The amount of value you offer is unparalleled compared to anyone else that I’m connected with. Keep putting out high quality content. I have no doubt that your new training is top notch. I’m looking forward to checking it out.

What I like about p2p investing on Lending Club is the website’s automated investing tool. You pick the criteria for loans in which you want to invest and the program does the rest. It will look for loans every day that meet those factors and automatically invest your money. It’s important because you’re collecting money on your loan investments every day so you want that money reinvested as soon as possible.
How to Monetize the Site: This site is ripe for products.  Video courses on how to pass the Part 107 exam in the United States, courses on cinematography with drones, how to start an aerial photography business, etc.  When you have these courses created, PLEASE email me because I’ll gladly be an affiliate for your products.  I could send you TONS of business from my photography site.
Google and other search engines give you a way to promote your business to someone who is looking exactly for the kind of solutions your business provides through Google search. In this section you need to focus on how to choose keywords, how bidding and auction works, how to create clear and concise ads, conversion optimisation and how to perform competitor research.
Everything about the business should begin from the customer or the end user. In marketing, understanding the needs, wants, motivations and problems of your customers is an absolutely critical first step. We call this research as building user persona or buyer persona. There are a lot of good resources online to learn this. One of them is listed here:
Do you know of a successful business that needs capital for expansion? If so, you can become something of a small-time angel investor and provide that needed capital. But rather than offering a loan to a business owner, you instead take an equity position in the business. In this way, the business owner will handle the day-to-day operations, while you will act as a silent partner who also participates in the profits of the business.
I really like that Danny has set the bar high for the content quality. On Firepole Marketing, you won’t find fluff that the internet is full of: instead, there’s a constant flow of   well written articles with practical ideas that you can apply to your business. Also, there are a lot of guest posts on Firepole Marketing, which provide many different perspectives and fresh ideas.

I would honestly just start with Amazon if you’re looking to sell toys. As your website gets more traffic, you can start looking into other retailers. Once you have traffic and some conversion data from Amazon, you will likely be able to broker private affiliate retails with a few toy retailers. You may even be able to help them set up better funnels in general that lead to better conversions. Once you have the traffic and conversion data, you’re in a much better place to negotiate


How to Monetize the Site: The affiliate program for Lowes and Home Depot stinks.  It’s only around 2%, which simply isn’t enough.  I would sign up for Amazon Associates to recommend items like a kitchen island post and hardware.  But also I think a site like this could get a HUGE amount of traffic from Pinterest if you have nice pictures, so I would definitely consider putting ads on a site like this.  I usually find that a site can earn about $1,000 per month for every 100,000 visitors to the site.  Frankly, with a site like this you could get that much traffic pretty quickly.  I use Adthrive right now to run the ads on my sites.

Great article Glen! I wish I saw this when it came out 2 years ago! I recently bought a number of .com’s for a couple of the niche’s you covered here. That’s encouraging, as that particular niche still has some nice numbers and not as saturated as it seems. I’m also happy to hear you like the rank and rent model, and I think a couple of other projects are now going to go in that direction. Thanks for all your great material.
Andrew Warner is an entrepreneur who is best known for building Mixergy. He did well in business way before Mixergy, though: when Andrew was in his early 20s, he and his brother started few businesses, the most successful being an online greeting cards company that reached the revenue of 1mil+/month. Later, they sold that company, and Andrew came up with an idea for business meetups, which he called Mixergy. That didn’t work out very well, but once he discovered interviewing, he was on the right path and Mixergy as we know it today was born.

For me I would choose a program with Recurring commission. You can build a real passive income. Its the best way to go! One suggestion is contact companies who sell services and ask if you can sell their service for them. Sometimes popular affiliate programs like these have just way too many people trying to sell their service. I personally went to sitecare.ca and asked them if I could sell their service and I couldn’t be happier! So find a service you believe in and go for it!

I read this post 3 times and have made notes for future businesses. I used your “Best” “2016” idea you gave at the start of the year and started a site with the words in the domain name. I am ranking for some very competitive keywords and am raking in 4 figures in adsense every month passive via it. Barely any links but just jumped the 2016 bandwagon. I will be doing the same for 2017 though this year I am buying the domain name in oct itself so it gets some age. In Jan 2017 I plan to 301 redirect the links from the 2016 site to the 2017 site and copy all the content there. Does it make sense to do it?

As an alternative, you can dedicate your time and efforts to generating as many unique leads as possible, and earn a good sum through quantity. This means you should not let high rates fool you. A commission of 30%-40% for the affiliate could be attractive relative to rates of 1%-5%. However, what matters is how much you can sell. Imagine that you have two products, both of which cost $100. From the first you can earn 40%, while from the second “just” 10%. Seems logical to work with the most profitable?
