a) Quick intro about myself.
Hello Builders! I am Lyanna I'm a 19 year old college student and I'm a relatively fresh face to the IM scene, and have a tonne to learn. There isn't really much to say about myself except that I'm extremely grateful for this opportunity and I can't wait to see where this journey takes me, and BuSo in general! I know it won't be easy. But nothing worth it ever is. I'm not perfect, and I will definitely make mistakes along the way, but that's why I'm happy to have such a great community rooting for me and the CC9 in general. This is almost a one in a lifetime opportunity presented here, and I promise to honor my commitments to the CC9.
b) The general niche I am in.
According to the Traffic Leaks thread, my site would be classified as informative/entertainment. The general niche is beauty/health. The target market is young adult/teen females, so ages 15-30. The primary monetization method for this site will be Amazon sales. I may also create a digital product for the niche. I am open to considering other forms of monetization, but I think that's what I'm going to run with for now.
c) The overall goal of the traffic leak experiment.
The overall goal of this experiment is (other than making money, of course!) to build a strong community of people and a large resource for all things related to my niche.
d) What I plan to gain out of it.
Personally, this whole experiment will be a starting point for me, sort of being on my own in the IM world. All my previous experience in IM has been from working with other people and helping them build their own assets. This will be the first time being "on my own", where everything is my responsibility. Hopefully this successful venture will lead to a long and fruitful career of owning several profitable internet assets. And if I do really well, I may never have to get a "9-5" and IM can be my day job so to speak.
e) Amount of time I plan on dedicating a week.
My exams are almost over, so I foresee being able to dedicate considerable amount of time to this. Whatever it takes. 40 hours a week is a decent amount of time to dedicate to this, but I can go more if needs be. School will resume at around January 20th, so at that time I will probably have to cut down to time to 20-25 hrs a week.
f) Optional traffic numbers OR percentage increases.
This is a brand new site so I'm at a staggering 0 visitors.
g) Where I'm currently at with this project.
The site is up and running. All social media accounts have also been created. I've added a couple pieces of content so far.I'm gonna add the rest of the initial content batch between tonight and tomorrow, and get started on more content. My Amazon affiliate account was suspended so I'm gonna re-activate it right now. I've never ever been an Amazon affiliate before, so I really have no idea about the nuances. Any advice re: maximizing Amazon sales is GREATLY appreciated. Apart from adding your affiliate links, if there are any techniques known to increase conversions etc. Also, I want to make youtube a part of my strategy and a decent source of traffic. So any advice re: youtube marketing is also appreciated. Like traffic leaking my traffic leaks. Traffic Leakception. lol
