Help Creating a Plan of Action

Ok, I bought affiloblueprint back in 2009, I gave it a go but hit too many stumbling blocks, mainly in my personal life.

Anyway I am back for another go.

I am going to go through the 12 week course again from start to finish. This time round I have decided to give my effort a kick start in terms of money. Would someone with a little bit of experience be able to give me a breakdown (preferably how much for each) of each stage that I should concentrate my efforts in terms of a monetary sense.

I am trying to come up with a budget to start this off again.

Thanks in advance,
Conners

hey Connors, it really depends totally on what you have to spend and what you are willing to spend ( not always the same thing.

First things first, you need at least 10/year for a domain and appx 10/month for webhosting.

everything else is optional.


My first thing would be to outsource link building if I were you. although article writing can be tough, what you really need is links to your site. if you can write even 1 article a week and outsource link building to that article, you will see things taking off faster than trying to do it all yourself.

If you're going to follow all the instructions in the AffiloBlueprint course, you'll need $10 for a domain, plus $67 / month for Article Marketing Automation membership.

I don't know how strapped you are for time, but if you are short on time, I would definitely recommend outsourcing article writing and link building. The price on that really depends on the quality you want to get. Quality articles usually cost between $7 - 10 or so each. However, I know people who don't really care about quality and are okay to get $1 articles that can't be understood by a human being.

Hi thanks for that guys,

I was thinking i probably have enough funding to outsource enough articles to start up 3 sites

things I have accounted for

$10 - Domain
$10p/m - Hosting
$250-$450 - Articles
$70p/m - SEO link building
$19p/m - Newsletter

have i clearly missed anything in your eyes?

Sounds okay.

If by $70 per month for link building, you are planning on just using Article Marketing Automation, you should also consider that you will need to get articles spin-formatted as well. You can do this yourself, but it makes most people want to cry after a bit.

Personally, what I would do is write the original articles myself and pay someone else to spin format them. Writing articles yourself will also help you get more familiar with your niche as you research and write the articles.

Also, when you're picking niche, I would strongly recommend you pick niches with real problems that people need solutions for. For better or worse, I've never had much luck with hobby-type niches. I believe that this is because people rarely have a "chicken coop" crisis that keeps them up all night or a "copycat recipe" problem that they worry about all day long.

However, in my experience, people are much more likely to buy stuff online (especially ebooks) if they solve a real problem like their wife just left them, they feel ashamed of their body because they are overweight, or their dog is vicious and it might hurt someone.

Pick your niches carefully and you can see success come in a lot faster :)

you can find several good link building deals through theAffilorama Services section of the forums here.

I would recommend Seo Juice's service. He is doing some of mine, and although we just started, they are very professional, and doing a great job. Good service upfront is always lacking, so when you find it, that is a good sign...
