I read a lot of blogs, and I have seen bloggers who recommend to beginners that they build 50, even 100 niche sites at once and especially for BANS users.
Yes, you can build 50, 75 and even 100 great niche sites with BANS and do it fairly quickly because BANS is designed for easy and fast niche site building, which is one of the main reasons that I recommend BANS to all my readers. But I would like to ask, where is the fire?
I do not believe building a lot of niche sites is the best practice for beginners. There is a lot involved in Internet marketing and Internet marketing strategies must be applied to each and everyone of the sites for optimal results. I recommend that beginners have NO more than 2 (maximum 3) niche sites.
As I have said before, success in this business is greatly based on hands-on experience and doing it by applying what you learn.
This experience is best gained, when there is only a few niche sites on which you focus. If you are a beginner and learning and applying all the traffic, link building, article marketing, SEO and all other Internet marketing strategies and on top of that you have to do it for 50+ sites, it greatly diminishes your chances for success. Talk about spreading yourself thin?
Now, I do think that having several income sources via niche sites is best, however, there is a time and place for everything.
I promise you that as you apply the Internet marketing strategies and you are learning and getting more and more experience you will become an expert and these techniques will become automatic for you. Along the way you will also learn a ton more from the testing and tweaking and your own personal niche journey. And, THEN you become an expert and THAT is when you can build an empire of niche sites!
Believe me, for beginners there is enough to learn and master without adding the huge stress of too many niche sites, and this could become a recipe for failure through massive burn out and simple frustration!
Also, chances are great that if you have to apply all the marketing methods, before you actually master them all, to a lot of sites, you will start to take shortcuts and this will affect all current and future online campaigns because your expertise and learning of the correct way will be flawed.
Don't set yourself up! There is nothing wrong with taking the time to really learn Affiliate Marketing and all the correct Internet marketing techniques by focusing on less niche sites. Believe me this will pay off in the long run, and not crush you in the short run!
What do you guys think? I have some expert Internet Marketer readers, I'd like to hear your opinions? How many niche sites is too many? Not Enough?
