I have just completed setting up the feeds to my BANS type eBay store. My CollectIronMan.com is now the 8th website that I have setup this way. In short, the website is setup with WordPress blogging software and posts feeds from eBay categories with my EPN (ebaypartnernetwork.com) campaign ID attached to them. Every week it’s updated and if I send traffic to eBay and they complete a purchase within 7 days, I make commission.
So far my sites haven’t made all that much, but I am sticking with the “100 sites that make $1/day” goal, I guess. I will replicate these as niche domains popup and as long as I can manage them. For the most part they are automatic, so I should be ok for at least 20 of these types of sites.
The main issue I am having right now is whether or not to pay for promotion, if so, how much and where do I do it? I am really struggling with the fact of using adwords to get traffic to these sites. The search traffic is excellent, so maybe I should focus more on direct linking campaigns. I will make a note of that and move on.
I have a couple more ideas for niches to get into, but I always want to make sure that I have a nice domain for these things. I guess it’s a thing that I have a domain name I am happy to associate a website with. In case it takes off you want to make sure the name is somewhat brandable and that sort of thing.
