Best Selling Products Shopping CartThis Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the United States.

After that is the dreadedBlack Friday,” which marks the beginning of the hectic holiday shopping season.

This is the perfect  opportunity for anyone with a killer physical product site

Right now, millions of people are ready to pull out their wallets and buy gifts for their loved ones.

This looming holiday season provides a reminder that promoting physical products can be extremely profitable.

In a recent article, I discussed six strategies for making passive income.

One of things I recommended is to diversify your revenue streams.

And a great way to do this is to create small niche websites that promote Amazon physical products. {affiliate link}

Now, one of the big problems with creating a niche Amazon site is knowing what to promote.  That’s why I’ve listed nine sites that can help you find top selling physical products… [click to continue…]

Niche Income Website LessonsIn the last month, I’ve gotten into building small niche websites.  So I was happy when Tom sent me this guest post about this very topic. 

I think he provides some excellent advice here. That’s why I urge you pay close attention to the lessons that Tom has learned the hard way…

It’s amazing how much you can learn in a short space of time if you apply yourself.

In 3 short months, I ranked no. 1 in Google for several fairly competitive keywords. Then I lost it all. Now I’m rebuilding with three more sites.

When it comes to keyword research and search engine optimization, I can confidently say that I have had some tough lessons. I have made mistakes that have set me back a long way.

But that is of benefit for two reasons:

  1. I have learnt from my mistakes, and won’t make them again.
  2. I am in a position to teach others about my mistakes, so that they never have to make them in the first place. [click to continue…]

Make Streams of Online Passive IncomeMany people wonder: What’s the secret to making passive income online?

Most of the time I’m not a fan of using the words “passive income” because I’ve never found a business that runs 100% on autopilot.

With that said, I think it is important to create multiple streams of income.  This diversification prevents any “single point of failure” from ruining your Internet business.

Build My Rank Review Update: Build My Rank has shut down because many of the sites in its blog network have been de-indexed by Google.  So I no longer recommend this tool.  You can get more details in this blog post

As we’ve all learned, backlinks are a key factor for how Google ranks a page in their search results.

Put simply, the more quality backlinks you have the higher your site will rank.  (Okay… that was a major simplification.)

Basically there are two choices when it comes to backlinks:

  1. You can hope people will link to a site because they like the content
  2. You can use tools to [semi] automate the process of getting backlinks.

Frankly, I have always thought that most backlinking tools are complete junk, because they usually are.  Some will get your site penalized by the all mighty Google.  Others create lots of “junk content” throughout the Internet which does nothing for your site.

In the last month, I’ve tested about a dozen backlinking tools for my niche affiliate income series.

And the only one I endorse is Build My Rank {yup, that’s my affiliate link.}

So let’s talk about Build My Rank (BMR) and learn how it gets backlinks that actually improve your search engine listings: [click to continue…]
