So I took the plunge and recently signed up with PL. I have been lurking on this board for a little and would really appreciate some guidance from some more familiar users. I am still in the learning and projects stage of my PL experience but I like to set distant goals so I can monitor where my progress is and keep myself motivated toward a goal. I would like to share my vision with you, please let me know if I am seeing things properly or if I need to adjust my sights a little bit. Obviously I am going to get my feet wet with some simple blogs, articles etc to try to get my feet wet in the IM arena but what I envision for my first major project is this: I would create a website. This website would relate to a field in wich I consider myself an expert. I imagine this site could contain approx. 10-15 sections. Each section pertaining to a different facet of my field. Each srction wojuld contain different related affilliate marketing content etc. I would obviously also be running adsense on all pages. I would then use the PL techniques- Blog, Articles, SEO etc, to drive the traffic to different specific sections of my site hoping that hits in one section of the site will lead traffic to the sections as well. Is this the right general idea? To be a successful IM do I need several of these sites or can I expect to eventually make a reasonable income from driving traffic to just one site that contains a wealth of information? I believe I can write enough valuable content to make my site worth reading. Am I heading down the right path? Do I need my scope to be bigger? i.e eventually have several of these types of sites Any knowledge you could impart would be appreciated.
