2016 Notes in Review

2016 Notes in Review

Digging through some of my storage today I found a diary from 2016 where I kept notes for my passive income endeavors. There’s a few ideas and resources there that might still be valuable, so I thought I’d put them all here as a summary and reminder for the future.

  • Apparently the “Awaken Theme” for WordPress is really great.
  • The keyword “best reverse osmosis system” looks great
  • More niche themes: Splash, Ultimate Azon, Kingdom theme
  • Copy sites like the spruce how they build multiple sites in different categories and use sitewide footers to link to each other
  • mrgugu.com for wholesale and dropshipping
  • Use CSS Hero for $20 per year – they also offer affiliates 40% commission
  • Customer support – Help scout, zendesk, desk, kayako, grasshopper, ring central
  • Nerdmarketing.com is a good resource for building an ecommerce store
  • spyder spanker plugin to protect backlinks when buildin PBN
  • Never interlink PBNs
  • Use firefox for PBNs
  • Gooten.com to sell and dropship products on Amazon
  • 8 bit penis scarf, still an opportunity?
  • Linquidator to check link quality
  • Google merchant woocommerce addon for $79
  • Awesomestuff365.com is a cool idea

Here’s a good one – a checklist for finding the right products to dropship:

  1. Average value between $75 – $200
  2. Gross margin 20% or more
  3. Fragmented market

  10. Non-comoditized products
