Actually when I joined Affilorama it was never in my plan to do anything with my earlier web sites. Rather I was preparing myself to create brand new sites with good niches - according to what I learned from the Trial 6 Part Affilorama Lessons. But as I joined the actual course, all of a sudden this site which I mentioned achieved a Page Rank of 3 straight way. This has somewhat messed up my plans and compelled me to concentrate on this site. the problem is though the site has a page rank of 3, it has got very few traffic. I have pointed out the drawbacks and working on them. I will post it in the Critique section as and when I am done. But to tell you the truth I don't expect this site to do very well in terms of Affiliate earnings because the total searches per moth is very low say about 1200 ( Am I right to say that ?)
At the same time I have registered a new domain for my first 'Affilorama-guided' niche site. I have just completed my first week here.
So, yes I am still learning as well as preparing for the 'attack'. There is so much to learn sometimes it seems overwhelming. It takes time to settle down.
I don't know whether any of you do this - I have done my SWOT analysis. And planned my work accordingly.
SWOT - Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, Threats.
My strength - I can create web sites, know enough Graphic design and Flash which help me to design my sites, know the SEO basics, I'm teachable, I am ready to give time. Affilorama and other tutorials. And lastly $1000/2000 is a pretty handsome amount in my country.
My weakness - I don't have much to invest. What I have to do - I have to do myself. I can't afford to spend for Adwords, or buy PR services and so on. So, I have to work that much more harder.
The opportunity - Well, there so much to learn, to win.
The threat - To end up earning $100 or even worse a month, after putting in so much time and effort.
Does that make any sense? :)
