A while ago I posted about earning $5K in a month through a single niche site, that site has continued earning and generated just shy of $9K throughout December 2016.

I'm not really doing anything different than what's taught here. Well, I haven't really started with social media, yet. No AdWords, no intentionally built backlinks, no guest posts on other blogs, nothing special has been done. Just simple white hat SEO bringing in organic search traffic.

Here's a shot of my Google Analytics so you can see I'm not joking about having basically zero social media traffic (for all of 2016):

Throughout 2017 I'll be hitting social media hard and jumping into YouTube as well. Should be interesting! Hoping to finally break 6-figures in online income by 2018!

I hope you're reaching and exceeding your goals as well!

Hey quick question, what program did you use to get that "overview report"?

The top one is Amazon's report and the bottom one is Google Analytics - I probably should have mentioned that, my bad :)

Thanks!

No problem!

Beautiful.

You've mentioned a couple of times it's how you're selling it... can you share the approach? Is it more product review posts vs how to posts?

There's a healthy balance between the two. I'd guess that for every review I have there are probably 3-4 informative/how to posts. Those informative posts often link to reviews of things used/talked about in the post, but not always.

Like I said above, I'm not really doing anything different than what's taught here. Other than slacking on the whole social media thing and basically anything outside of white hat SEO :)

Thanks Branton.. you know what? No matter how many times I've read and KNOW that the training works here, I still like to get the personal insight of ones who's made it. LOL It's just my nature... and you know what? Your little insight of reviews vs info/how-to posts, gives me great hope for my site, so thank you for this!!! I think this was better than me asking about your niche for sure. :)

Thanks so much for answering my question!!

Your inspiration truly touches all of us.

Congratulations! This is so cool and awesome to see.
Thank you for sharing with us and Happy New Year. :)

Thanks!

Happy New Year :)

WOW! That is amazing!

Thanks, Arief!

THAT IS SWEET!!!

Thanks for sharing that with us!

Great results. Amazing. I notice you don't have you have your website on your profile :) All the best, Cheers, William.

Hey William,

Thanks!

That's because I have enough copycats outside of WA, I don't need to add more to the already big dogpile :) Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that's you, but they exist everywhere as I'm sure you well know!

Something I've noticed is that it doesn't matter so much what you're selling (within reason), it matters more how you're selling it.

Yes thanks .. and agree (although you are more expert than me) .. niche is not the issue for me but rather the website layout and process. Thanks for your reply and for sharing.

Cheers, William.

That makes sense, but what works in my niche may not work in yours. You would get a better sense of what will work in your niche via competition research.

I get that you don't want to share what you are doing. LOL. It is ok. Cheers, William.

Awesome Branton and you are a prime example of what I taught in my live class on Friday. I indicated precisely what you are saying. You don't need to be involved in many niches, you don't need to be doing everything ( social, instagram, PPC, SEO, guest blogging, ad buys, Youtube, etc) to succeed, and you simply need to focus, build a solid foundation, get the formula for success down, and then do more of what you are doing.

I have a feeling 2017 is going to be a really big year for you and I look forward to seeing it unfold!

Thanks, Kyle! That means heaps coming from you!

I missed the class, but I'm going to catch the replay right now. Are you planning on doing more of them in the future?

I'm definitely going to be working triple-time on scaling this out through 2017! Working on some innovations which I think are really going to catapult me ahead of the competition :)

I sure hope so and I hope you crush your 2017 milestones also!

This is so awesome you're updating us!! This is great to see and so encouraging for others! Can you just share your niche by any chance?

I'm in the technology field, but I won't go much deeper than that.

Something more important than learning my niche is discovering your own niche :)

Yes I understand that, and I know a lot of successful people on here don't want to share their niche. I appreciate that you at least said it's in the tech field. Thanks so much! :)
