Ok let’s admit it Email outreach is a pain in the ass. But it’s also a critical part of your link building strategy. That’s why I look for ways to automate the boring parts and spend more time on the fun stuff. I’m going to tell you the exact technique that I use to find […]

How I Launched a $2K/month Business in 10 Hours – The NoHatSEO Story

Post-how-I-launched-a-2k-business-in-3hours                   The Idea Is Born… Back in mid 2012, I was having some decent success with my niche sites. I had around 3000 in total, with 400 of them generating about $1000 a day in revenue. Definitely a good business by any means, but I could also see the potential for adding a ton of value to the SEO....

I’ve received a bunch of emails asking me what’s up with NHD? The short answer is, I’ve been too busy to post here, but I’m working more than ever.  The goal of NHD hasn’t changed, I still aim to help aspiring entrepreneurs fire their bosses and make it online, and still do this by: Offering […]

Another system I have gotten into is doing a complete monetization overhaul, with a focus on product creation.  Here I look for sites that are monetized with generic, low visitor value programs such as Adsense, Amazon (or other generic affiliates), and Ebooks.  The subject of the site is very important.  I will always ask for […]

A productized service is exactly what it sounds like – you provide a service that is packaged as a product.  This means that customers pay you up front, and have very set, standardized expectations as to what they’ll be receiving. Benefits of a Productized Service No more asshole customers, no more written proposals, no more […]

Digital Products are great because they have 100% profit margin, instant delivery, and are easy to scale.  It can range from the low-end of monetization (Kindle books), to the upper end in the form of courses (like the course you’re currently taking). I personally think the course is the best info product right now.  On the learners […]

It’s time to create your Minimum Viable Product.   The first step to doing that is surveying your audience to determine what it will look like. Back up for a second, what’s a Minimum Viable Product? It is exactly what it sounds like.  A product with the bare minimum feature-set that still makes it viable […]

The business model behind “local lead-gen” means collecting leads, and then selling them to someone else (or multiple people if selling non-exclusive leads).  It’s often a great starting point as it sets you up for selling your own info products or productized services later, but can still pay you 5-10x more than advertising! Selling leads is a fantastic model, […]

As you may know, I’m currently all about buying internet businesses. As of writing, I’d say it is the fastest and surest way to make money online (as long as you do your due diligence). That being said it’s still quite a lot of work. In fact, let’s take a look at the standard “low […]

As you may know, I’m currently all about buying internet businesses.  As of writing, I’d say it is the fastest and surest way to make money online (as long as you do your due diligence). One of the ways I approach this is by applying the Pareto Principle (aka the 80/20 Rule).  Basically I look […]
