    Hi Christopher

    Great post, and I totally agree that it’s your passion that will let you reap the profits.

    I’m reading an excellent book at the moment called “Trust Funnels” by Brian G Johnson, and he claims there are three things you need for a successful online business:

    1. Consumer demand (or you won’t make any money)
    2. Personal knowledge and experience (otherwise you have too much learning to do)
    3. Passion (or won’t won’t keep going with it)

    He says that there aren’t many people who have been successful without truly loving what they do, and that lasting passion is vital for success.

    All the best

  2. Hi Christopher,

    You’re right in that you need both the dedication to a single topic and for that topic to have a decent profit potential if you want do a money making website on the subject. But that’s only half the story.

    While a good number of articles might eventually attract enough search engine juice to push you up the rankings and bring you to the public’s notice, the only other way to get interested visitors is by targeted advertising, which usually means spending money.

    You can only do so many blog and forum comments before the novelty begins to fade – normally around the 3 to 6 months point. The thing to do then is bite the bullet and look for a paid source of targeted traffic. Something that FB is actually quite good for. A spurt of interest generated by these paid visitors may be just enough to keep YOU interested as well as those you seek to attract.

  3. Hi Christopher!

    Good article! Certainly agree with you that if you are passionate about some hobby you can certainly write about it and make money at it. When you enjoy what you’re writing about it is certainly a lot easier than if you decide to start a business and pick a niche that you don’t have much knowledge of, but feel it is a money maker. Doing social media such as Facebook is also great when you have a hobby and will be a big boost to your business!
