A Bit About Me
I have been an online entrepreneur and in the digital marketing space for nearly 25 years and a self employed business owner for over 30 years. In these 25 years of being an internet entrepreneur, I have built and developed over 30 online businesses.
My first website was a very niche site that allowed writers to post their own content. At that time I didn’t know much about choosing the right niche or even how to do niche analysis. I developed the site because I wasn’t a writer myself and I thought this would be a way to allow users to publish their own content and for writers to get exposure.
It took a few years but the site started to grow quickly and soon became the top site in its very small niche. With thousands of writers joining the site, the amount of content being published was quite large and traffic grew quickly as a result. I also learned at that time how to monetize the site and the income grew as well.
I ran the site with a small team for over 10 years and it produced a full time income. In 2012, I finally decided to sell it through the website brokerage Website Properties. This was my first taste of the type of money that could be made selling a website.
On top of this, I have sold 17 other businesses including a large 7 figure exit for my multi-million dollar Amazon FBA brand that I developed.
Besides the sale of my Amazon FBA business, I have sold 17 other online businesses including several niche based authority sites. My most recent sale was a website that I sold for $350,000 after less than one and half years of working on it.
After 25 years in digital marketing, having successfully built membership sites, niche affiliate sites, ecommerce sites and blogs, I finally decided to teach others how to achieve this same success.
