How to Build an Authority Internet Business [A Case Study]
Welcome to the Authority Internet Business (AIB) case study!
This is a multi-year blueprint that will teach you how to build a long-term Internet business from scratch.
While many Internet experts talk about generating income, I’ll reveal every step of the process. The core example of this case study is a website I started in April 2013 (DevelopGoodHabits.com).
What I hope to do is show how you can:
- Generate income from Kindle books
- Build a high-traffic blog with loyal readers
- Leverage social media sites like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook
- Reuse content to maximize your traffic and income
- Diversify your income through affiliate marketing, information products and advertising
- Test new platforms like mobile apps and Udemy
This case study will be my focus for 2013 and 2014. So there will be a lot of content published on this page.
To make things simple, I’ve broken the articles down into specific sections:
