Simple Adsense Battle Plan

By: John Elder posted in Adsense


Hello good people!

It’s Thursday and I’m running way behind today! Spent last night wandering around the Christkindl Market drinking hot spiced wine out of a souvenir boot mug and enjoying all things Christmas related. It’s a pretty good time, if you’re in the Chicago area between now and Christmas I highly recommend it.

I want to send out a special thank you to everyone who purchased my friends $.99 ebook on amazon yesterday. We both really appreciate it! I hope you enjoyed the book as much as I did, and be honest – you laughed so hard you cried…didn’t you!

Well earnings slowed down a bit yesterday, I only made $80 in adsense and $5 in amazon commissions (off of $75 of items purchased). I guess that’s to be expected, there are always dips and eddies in earnings, especially after a prolonged upward trend like we’ve been seeing recently. Will have to see what happens today and tomorrow!

Today I want to talk a little bit about setting up your own battle plan when it comes to building your own Adsense empire.

A lot of people get trapped in a constant state of learning and not doing. I’ll admit that I’ve been there myself in the past. You want to learn everything there is to know about a certain marketing strategy.

The problem is, a couple months goes by and you haven’t actually ever gotten around to making any money because you’re still reading about whatever method you’re studying.

Take Action!

Learning is vitally important, but it’s also important to stop learning and take action. Get the basics down, then just dive in and start doing something. Sure, you’ll probably make a bunch of mistakes at first, but that’s part of the process! Learn and move forward…but keep taking steps.

Part of taking action is creating a plan. Even if it’s a very simple plan. So I’m going to give you a very simple plan to use today.

  1. Research and pick 10 domain names and purchase them from Godaddy using my $.67 info domain trick. (cost = $6.70)
  2. Set up an Aluminum Reseller account from Hostgator (cost = $25 for the first month). If you’ve got webhosting experience and want to build a larger Adsense empire, order a Servint VPS account (cost = $45 for the first month).
  3. Sign up for Adsense, if you haven’t already (cost = $0).
  4. Decide on a simple html template, or wordpress template (cost = $0).
  5. Build one new website a day for the next ten days (cost = $0).
  6. Once you have the ten sites built, research and buy ten more domains and build one new site a day (rinse and repeat).

That’s it! Obviously this is a very simplified action plan, but it should be enough to shock you into action and start getting something done. And it doesn’t cost hardly anything! With the hostgator option, this plan would set you back a total of $32! Who doesn’t have that much money to start a new business?

So what’s stopping you?

Learning is important…and as someone who owns a website that teaches about adsense I know how important it is..but ultimately you need to take action. I hope you take action today!

Keep on building!

    Researching keywords, buying the domain names and setting up the sites are simple as hell. I like your blog but those are the only things you seem to talk about.

    You never talk about content creation and actually ranking your sites (these are the two things that most people have problems with) – because you have your PHP auto content script thing.

    Could you please do up a post on how your readers can create content for their sites? Not everyone knows PHP.

      Hi Kyle,

      Thanks for the comment!

      I think you’re missing the point and making it harder than it is. I do talk about content creation (I don’t create content, I spin one article), and I talk about ranking too (I don’t do any ranking work, I let the longtails do all the ranking work on their own). I’ve written articles on both those things in the last week.

      You seem to want advice on the traditional content creation methods, but why would I give advice on things I don’t do, when my own methods work so well?

      And why would you spend time doing things that don’t work? Why spend time and money creating content? Why spend time and money on ranking? Why?

      If you don’t know enough php to spin one article, then hire someone to do it. You just need one script, and one article. Use it on every site. You can probably find someone on elance.com to do it for less than $50 bucks…probably much less.

      Heck, you can do a google search to find free php spinner scripts.

      *shrugs* it’s a different mindset…I keep repeating it because it’s hard for people to accept that the traditional content/ranking methods don’t work.
