How to Build a Website that Makes Money with Jim Harmer and Ricky Kesler:

Jim Harmer and Ricky Kesler have a proven method on building websites that make money. In this episode, Alex finds out what this proven method is. Here is what they had to say:

What is Project 24?

We call it Project 24 because 24 months is a realistic timeline for someone to work hard on creating a content business online and to have it replace their full-time income in that time period. – This won’t work for everyone, but it is a realistic goal to create an online business.

“35 weeks seems to be a really good time for Google to begin trusting your website and knowing that you are the real deal. It takes time for Google to see that you are an authority in your field.” ?

Jim Harmer and Ricky Kesler talk about how paid advertisements are the big leagues and in order to play in that space, you have to have a lot of capital. ?

They recommend going the content route instead.

You can use existing influencers that already have a great audience and you can pay them a lot less than you would pay for ads and receive a higher ROI.

How much content should people be producing?

This depends on the results you want and what your product or service is. Our goal with any new blog post to get a thousand page views a month on the site. I wouldn’t create fewer than 30 blog posts before slowing down. Create momentum and velocity for Google to notice and take note of your site.


What is your secret sauce?

The number 1 reason we see blogs fail is improper search analysis. Jim Harmer and Ricky Kesler say there is no such thing as keyword research. Google understands the semantic meaning of the words you use. The content must match a specific search query.
The big failure is choosing the wrong topics for articles. We can usually tell in about 45 seconds if the blog will take off and it’s based on the title. The content must match a specific search query. ?

How do you find the right topics? For search analysis, they use google auto-suggest.

How do you stay disciplined?

You have to write about something that you are passionate about and that you love. If you’re going to win, you’re going to win with awesome content that you consistently produce. ? Just know that success is right around the corner. For people who just keep going there is always another opportunity.
