Mini sites are easy to setup, and once you get them kick started, you pretty much leave them running on autopilot.


Mini Sites - an introduction

Although my book, Mini Site Profits, concentrates on affiliate programs, it's not much different if you want to build mini sites to promote your own product.

The major difference is that when you're promoting affiliate programs your job is to presell the product. In other words, your mini site works on putting people into a buying mood, so that when you send targeted traffic to the site you're promoting you're going to get a much better conversion rate...and a bigger income.

When you have your own product - or when you have full resale rights to a product - you need to directly make the sale. So rather than sending people to read a sales letter you need that sales letter on your own mini site. I cover both in Mini Site Profits though it's mainly about making big affiliate sales.

Why choosing a topic for your mini site is different
to building an ordinary content site...

I've always been a big believer in following your passions, in doing what you love.

I've said many times in my marketing newsletter Letter from Phil, that you'll find success if you build a web site around your special interest.

If you're in love with window blinds build a killer window blind site. If all you can think about are the clouds in the sky aim to build the world's best cloud site. (maybe you could source and sell dramatic cloud posters, or even binoculars).

But you can take an entirely different approach to mini sites.

With mini sites, because they're quick to build and low-cost, you can follow the money.

It's very easy to find out what is in demand and supply it.

In other words, instead of following your passions:

* you can simply take any successfull affiliate program you choose and build a mini site around it.

* you can take any hot, popular, fast selling, product and build a mini site to sell it.

* can look up the most searched for words or phrases on the web, find an affiliate program related to those words, and build a mini site around them.
