Early-Riser.com is still a fairly new site - I started writing in September 2012 - but the growth of content and visitors has been tremendous so far. And I'm extremely happy I made the decision to go about it the way I did.
So as I'm writing this (June 2013) I already make quite a lot of money off my site. Not enough to quit my day-job just yet, but just give me some time :-)
So if you want to change your life too, then follow me through this post.
This was, and remains, my main motivation to starting Early-Riser.com. I want to create and build something myself instead of working 9-5 in a boring office. You might experience the same?
And I'm not not just making money. I love writing here too. Every morning I rise up excited to bring even more content to Early-Riser.com.
So what actually made me finally be able to build a great online website/business?
Well, that's what I will tell you about now. But let's start from the beginning, shall we.
For the last 4-5 years (if not more) have I tried to get into blogging and online business. I remembered I modified and built an online store using zencart, I created a few small (bit entertaining web apps) but generally I was struggling when it came to building long-lasting, high-quality websites and online services.
Of course, I tried Wordpress (and Drupal) as well with some minor blogs but nothing I did really taught me about how to succeed online.
Finally I started reading some books on the topic to see if I could find out how all those successful people out there manage their websites - and after a while I came into contact with this free ebook about online business - this was the moment of change.
It happened in the summer of 2012.
At last I was presented with a logical and reasonable method for how to build a value-based site - and how to Make Money Online.
I had learned these two facts the hard way through the launch of a great service (probably only in my opinion) that would take any text/image input and spit out a unique Android/iPhone app to give away as a romantic gift.
I sold one.
And he found the site through Google Adwords.
I made 5 dollars.
You, on the other hand, most likely found your way here through Google Search. Or at least through one of my guest posts around the web.
The reason you're able to find my site is simply because I offer a lot of unique content. Google likes that. And it's not just unique, all the content is related to a very specific niche. Google likes that too.
And it also makes it really easy for all visitors to find exactly what they are searching for on the site.
Through all the thousands of included articles, his 10-day guide, the forum and of course the website creation system anyone is able to build a website ranking number 1 with Google within your very own niche.
And make real money off it too.
The person behind all of this, Ken Evoy (author of the book I just linked above), nowadays provides a fantastic framework called SBI, or in other words - SiteBuildIt.
So that's how it all started for Early-Riser.com. If you want to know more or have any questions, feel free to comment below or contact me through this form.
Thanks again for visiting my site.
