Content Really is KaChing!

As you know, I've been building websites since 1995. I've always been a big fan of creating content-rich sites that bring value to others.

That's why I have always spoken against creating spammy sites designed to game the search engines. It's not a good model for building a long-term business.

I've sold a number of my sites over the years. In 1998, Yahoo! purchased my multiplayer game site, ClassicGam

And I've sold no fewer than five other sites in the years since then.

With so many people trying to figure out how to make money online, I believe going back to the basics is the best place to start. Build a content-rich site focused on one of your passions and work the site so it brings great value to your visitors.

It's not a get-rich-quick scheme. It takes dedication and hard work.

Does it pay off?

Allow me to go public with my latest transaction. Then you tell me if content is still a great way to go, fair enough?

Is Your Site for Sale?

Over the past sixteen years one of my key focuses has been building content-rich websites. I've had some great success working this model, including the recent sale of one of my sites.

I am now looking to acquire additional niche sites for my portfolio. This could include blogs, member sites, forums or product sites.

A number of my readers h

ave approached me with solicitations to purchase their sites over the years, so I thought I would provide a form with which anyone can tell me about a site they wish to sell.

Some people just don’t get it. Online advertising works, and those who realize they need to adapt to these changes are the ones who will succeed. When I visit my local mall, I continually see new stores opening up and going out of business just a few short weeks after. If they don’t go out [...]
Get Your Own KaChing Button

I remember the first time I encountered an "easy button" at Staples. Push the big red button with the word "easy" printed on it and the family "That was easy" voice was played. I loved it and had to have one.

A couple years ago I came up with an idea for another button which I thought would have great appeal to business people around the world. A green button with a dollar sign on top, I dubbed it the KaChing Button.

When pressed, the KaChing Button would make the cash-register sound that makes everyone smile.

I only manufactured a small quantity of these buttons and they were sent as promotional gifts to partners, as well as offered to those who purchased my book "KaChing: How to Run an Online Business that Pays and Pays".

However, everywhere I go I find the demand for these buttons continues to grow.

So I have manufactured a couple thousand buttons that I am making available for sale on a first-come, first-served basis!

Flip Your Website

In a recent blog post I had mentioned that I was both selling of some of my biggest internet properties and at the same time looking to acquire more sites.

This led to a conversation with my VP of Ideas Dan Nickerson about all our mutual internet properties and the need to create a "simple" marketplace to int

roduce domain sellers and buyers.

Sure there are a number of domain marketplaces online, but they can be pricey for both buyers and sellers with high listing fees and the dreaded "success fees".

Most of these marketplaces work on an auction based system. However, a lot of the real negotiating goes on via private messages between buyers and sellers.

So we thought.. why can't we just make listing a website or domain for sale easier?

Finding the best affiliate network for your web site or ad campaigns is always a challenge, there are just so many to choose from. Fortunately, we can thank the competition between all of the networks to do the dirty work for us, of recruiting new advertisers, handling payments and everything else we really don’t want [...]
It’s easy to hate on success… and no one becomes popular, has a voice, or even finds success without a flood of haters behind them. Without haters, there would be no gossip, trash talking and spreading of what people disagree and talk about. More than anything else, it’s all about how you deal with haters [...]
