Overview Of Niche Marketing Mini Sites

What’s a mini niche / info site? Here’s a quick refresher to discover what niche marketing is ; a mini niche site is 6 to 12 pages of static content on a very specific topic. Usually the site does not need to be updated. One might add content very casually.

Initially, it involves a few hours of research and writing with a burst of promotion (with some more writing) but maintenance is minimal once complete.

    • placing ads i.e. Google Adsense strategically on site
    • selling other people’s products and services (affiliates sales)
    • creating your own product or service and a squeeze page
    • variations of the above or experiment with a multitude of ideas
  • who it’s for
    • low maintenance, limited upkeep (set & forget)
    • those who want to learn how to set up a blog
    • limited web design skills needed
    • people that want to build up a portfolio fo web real estate quickly

If you want limited social interaction these sites are ideal. They are also perfect for a person with varied interests and knowledge that wants to move from topic to topic.

A perfect type of site for someone that wants to build a passive income. I discourage outsource writing so you can maintain the quality and integrity of the site and practice your writing in the beginning.

That’s all, complete one site – rinse and repeat. Sites can be hit or miss so you may need to tweak them or do a little more promotion with article building somewhere down the line. If they don’t pan out – sell them.
