My Goals for 2014

2014 is looking like it is going to be even busier than last year. I was reading a year end goals review from Spencer Haws at Niche Pursuits and I thought he did a great coming up with realistic goals and assigning numbers and time to them. I’ve pick the three most important things to my business in the next year and outlined what I plan to do over the next 12 months.  I’m not planning to buy or sell many domains, but you never know if something will come up. 

Launch 3 New Sites

I would like to build 3 new websites on a few of my domains. I know one is going to be in the outdoor area, and another is going to work with my app. For the last one, I could do another equipment rental site or something completely new. In building these sites and updating other I hope to increase my income from internet businesses by 50%. You can view my current projects here.

Publish a Kindle eBook and Android App

I think both of these would be a great experience. The book was part of a class I took this past year and helps businesses and individuals set up simple websites. The App is in development right now and is for the domain development and SEO people. I should have this done in the next month hopefully.

Launch Version 2 of the College Copywriters Platform

Chris and I have been working hard on everything for the second version of our content writing network. We are paying our writers more and providing better service. It will also be a much more automated process. This should be done in the first half of the year.

Personal Goals

Eat healthier, run more, and explore new bars in Atlanta!

    Do you still recommend building mini-sites? I was pretty much all set to build a few, but all I hear is negativity relating to Google pretty much hating mini-sites so much that it is now much more difficult to build a mini-site and get any kind of recurring revenue from it if you rarely update the site.

    I think I am finally close to needing some articles written on a particular subject. When I’m ready, I’ll contact you and get you a little work for your College Copywriters.

      @ Jeff It’s a complicated question. I still build sites for myself and a few clients that may start “mini” but grow into larger sites. If you have strong names and are willing to put in the work to build a nice site then from what I have seen they are still working. But if you are looking for passive income I would look at some stocks. And just let me know about the articles.

    “explore new bars in Atlanta” Can’t you just skip the other two and go right to this one? 🙂

      I wish! but doing the other stuff makes it more rewarding.

    Hey Brian – I agree with you on Niche sites.. I think if you build out authority sites you will see a decent passive income stream. However, I’ve noticed smaller niche EMD’s haven’t been doing so well lately.

    Looking forward to hearing about your new projects.

    Whats up. Came across this blog from teendomainer. It was awesome to see you were still working on this stuff. I actually just got into it. And by that, websites, domains, and everything.

    Refreshing to see some one a bit younger like me blogging about it.
