Some Updates

I can’t think of a better title because it’s really just some random updates from me:

1. Hiring a part-time assistant

I will be hiring an assistant to help me out with data entry, articles submission and blog postings. I mentioned I will be focusing on my money-making sites on my last post.  There are a few older sites that I need to work on simultaneously. Even though I have article submitting software to help me speed up the process, it’s still taking up quite a bit of time. I need to free up my time to do more important tasks such as researching profitable niches, improving conversion etc.

2. My wedding videography site has leads and sales

After a few months of SEO-ing, the site is “up there” in search engines. Leads are coming in and closed a few deals in the process. But the conversion rate can be better. Will be working on that as well.

3. Wedding photography site is up next!

The photography website is a sister-site and similar to the videography one. This niche is much tougher to break into cos’ competition is fierce and I will take more time and effort to optimize the site.

4. My 7.5km run weekly.

Because I work from home, there is a need to have some kind of “activity” for me, or else I will be sitting on my chair most of the time at home. I am very proud to announce that I have been running consistently for the past 6 months. My usual routine now: Running 7.5km three times  per week. Hope I can continue this healthy lifestyle!

Yeah, that’s all for the update now. 🙂

    Great post! How do you earn revenue from your money making site? Adsense, affiliate for ebooks or physical products?

    @matt: Hey thanks for commenting. The revenues are mostly from affiliate marketing on both digital(ebooks) and physical products. I seldom put adsense… unless I can’t monetize the site through affiliates products. 🙂

    Ok, but there are tons and tons of different niches to explore. Could you teach me on how do you do research on which niche to tap into?
    Do you need to test which niche is profitable before starting a website on it?

    @matt: There isn’t any fast and hard rule when choosing a niche. But I prefer to stick to ever-green niches such as: health, money, relationship, self-improvement etc. From there then you drill down and decide which sub-topic you want to focus on. I don’t really test nowadays. But I make sure there are several products that I could promote in that particular niche, so if the specific product “died”, there are substitutes.
