IT’S TIME TO START AND GROW A MONEY-MAKING NICHE SITE FROM SCRATCH

Knowing You’ve Got A Great Niche

Niche Site Academy
Isn’t The WHOLE POINT of blogging to actually MAKE MONEY?
If you’ve been blogging your butt off, pumping out value-soaked content, pinning all day long and writing for months about your “passions” …
Only to STILL see yourself stuck making less than $100 per month, it’s time to make a change.
It’s time to truly understand how successful content sites ACTUALLY make money.
Just because you’re blogging about your passions and posting all over social media doesn’t mean you’ll succeed
Here’s what you might not realize about creating a website that actually makes money…
1. YOUR “PASSIONS” DON’T REALLY MATTER
Look, in a perfect world we would all blog about our passions and make $10,000 per month. But the truth is that most of our “passions” make for terrible niches, because the audience size is too small and it’s really hard to monetize whatever little traffic you’re able to get.
2. YOUR NICHE IS EVERYTHING
At the end of the day, when it comes to making money with a content-focused site like a blog or niche site, it all comes down to choosing the right NICHE.
Because while some niches are a goldmine for attracting large audiences ready to buy—hello, affiliate marketing revenue!—other niches are almost impossible to build traction with.
Which means that if you choose the WRONG niche, your website is doomed to fail before you even install your WordPress theme.
3. YOUR CONTENT CASHES THE CHECKS
Yes, as content marketers we all know that “content is king”, but for niche sites and blogs in particular, there are a handful of content-types that are a magnet for attracting affiliate sales on auto-pilot every single day.
If you end up publishing the wrong kind of content—which will never rank in Google, and is hard to monetize—you’ll have wasted countless hours writing posts that aren’t moving your business forward.
4. BRANDING, LOGOS, AND “TAGLINES” ARE A WASTE OF TIME
There’s nothing wrong with having a beautiful looking site that you’re proud of, but if you’re spending more than one day of your time worrying about the look and feel of your site, before you even have ANY traffic yet, then you’re not focusing on what really matters: publishing high-quality content that’s going to grow your traffic and affiliate income.
Trust me: the most successful niche sites online aren’t making five-figures per month because they’ve got the perfect tagline.
The best part? You don’t need an audience, an email list, or your own product to sell to hit four-figures+ per month
Listen, I know just as well as anyone that having an engaged audience and email list can be a great way to build a business.
But I also know that you can hit four-figures per month (and more) without either of those two things, just by building a profitable niche site that’s centered around:
- A great niche
- A keyword research-focused content strategy
- An affiliate marketing plan that drives clicks & sales
And this is exactly how I’ve been able to earn well over $300,000 with the Amazon affiliate program (well before I got into doing email marketing and selling my own products).
Starting and scaling a profitable niche site is easier than ever
(because most bloggers still have no clue how to make money)
If you’re on this page then you already know niche sites can be a great way to make a consistent and—dare I say—passive way to make money online every month.
The type of income that allows you to …
- Pop into your kiddo’s 1st grade show-and-tell unannounced on Thursday morning to surprise them because you’re no longer answering to anyone but yourself now since you’ve quit your 9-5.
- Not hesitate for even one second as you hit add to cart on that new Coach bag you’ve always wanted but weren’t quite sure you could really afford (#nowyoucan)
- Finally hire that VA you’ve always needed to take care of those little day-to-day tasks that were eating away at your time but now that you’re running a real biz you know is totally worth the investment.
But what you might not know is that there’s a simple five-part framework that has the potential to …
- Help you finally choose a niche that you know has the ability to make you money.
- Help you identify profitable keywords and topic ideas so you can create content that your audience wants to read, bringing you in thousands of free visitors a day, and putting you in the position to make affiliate sales on autopilot.
- Let you generate a steady stream of passive cash from Mediavine and Amazon, because once your posts are ranking at the top of Google you can ditch fillin’ up your Tailwind queue all day long.
And it’s called …

Who is this guy to be teaching me about niche sites?
Hi, my name is Mike Pearson, founder of Stupid Simple SEO™ and the popular SEO course that goes by the same name.
And I’ve been making money passively with niche sites for more than five years now, including my first $5,000 month from Amazon Associates all the way back in December 2014:
Up until today when I’m still cashing $4,000 and $5,000 checks from Mediavine and Amazon month after month on auto-pilot …
And I just recently hit my first $9,000 month with my new niche site in the credit space …
While still working my 9-5 corporate job and helping to raise my two little adorable kids at home.
I’ve started four- and five-figure per month niche sites in the vacuum niche (yes, really), fitness niche, backpacking niche, and now credit niche, and I’ve perfected the process for identifying high-income potential niches with my Niche Sites That Scale System.
So if you’re ready to start a new site knowing you’ve finally got the potential for a profitable niche and a system to create the type of content that generates affiliate income every month …

The Niche Site Framework
We’re going to start out by laying the groundwork with the niche site model.
We’re covering things like how niche sites are different than traditional blogs, how niche sites actually get traffic and make money, and you’ll get a sneak-peek at the two key types of content behind all successful niche sites.
After this module you’ll have a clear understanding of the niche site framework and a clear path for moving forward.
How To Find A Niche: Initial Research

After you’re done, you’ll have decided on your final niche to move forward with, and we’re even mapping out your first 25 pieces of affiliate content.
How To Set Up Your Niche Site
Whether you’re brand new to blogging and niche sites, or you’re a seasoned site-builder with years of experience, you’ll learn some helpful tips for getting your new site up and running in record time.

Creating Your Niche Site Structure
To get maximum SEO benefits, we need to get your site structure set up properly from the outset.
This means designing your homepage and category pages to improve both your SEO and user experience.
In this module, you’ll learn how to quickly set up custom category pages, menu items, your homepage, and other important pages (About, Privacy) in just a few hours (not weeks or months).

I’ll hold your hand as we walk through step-by-step how to identify not only the best keyword opportunities for your niche, but the best keywords that will drive affiliate sales consistently.

In this module, I’m handing over the keys to six of my content templates and walking you through each one so you can produce the type of content needed to rank your niche site in Google.
Niche Site Link Building
What most other “niche site courses” on the market fail to teach you is actually one of the most important elements for creating a profitable niche site. (Most likely because they don’t know how to actually do it).
And that’s how to efficiently build backlinks.
After going through the link building module, you’ll know how to:
Brainstorm the perfect idea for your “linkable asset”
Find website owners to pitch your content to
Send emails at scale so your targets link back to you
Repeat this process at scale so you can build links month after month

How To Outsource Content Creation
The single best way to scale your niche site to five-figures per month (and beyond) is to outsource your content creation, which means hiring and managing a writer (or two) to help write your content.
