It's Sunday night (Monday morning) and I'm about halfway through setting up my second niche/affiliate site. I used the same template as the first one, although I've changed the images and stuff to match the new niche. I like this template and it lends itself well to a simple store setup. It has some nice features and effects - and since I'm already pretty familiar with it, the coding is going a lot quicker on this site.

I have run into a stop point as I am awaiting a few affiliate programs to approve my application. So I can't do much more to the site as I'll need those codes to place products in the site. Hopefully those will come through in the next 24 hours so that I can finish up this site.

I've been writing articles like crazy for the first niche site. I've been writing under a pen name for this niche. I plan on using a pen name for each niche - a persona I've created to become the 'expert' in each one. The persona for the first niche is actually a female as I think it will help with my credibility in that niche.

I've also set up a facebook account for that persona and begun to network on facebook through some groups that pertain to that niche. Hopefully that will help drive a little bit of traffic to my sites.

On CashCrate I started the month with 7 or 8 active referrals and about 20 total referrals. Here's where I'm at now:
I finally hit 'silver.' I was just happy when my total first level referrals hit 100. And my second level has really started to go - I've picked up about 30 second level referrals in just the last 3 or 4 days. Then next level is 'gold.' Here's the requirements:
I only need 150 active referrals to hit that level. That's a lot - I'm hoping to hit that level in a week and a half or so. We'll see. Right now I'm finding that for every 2 people I'm signing up, 1 of them will actually become active. To be active all they have to do is complete 1 offer. Not much. But we'll see how long it takes to get there. I'm still only spending about 15 - 30 minutes a day actively working on getting referrals - and I'm getting 10 - 12 a day right now. Not bad.

Anyways - I've got a few different niche's planned out right now. The neat thing is that I really don't know much about any of the new ones that I am trying. The first one I know a bit about, so it's not that hard to create content for it. But these new ones - well, I'm doing a lot of research to educate myself on these topics which is fun, because it's like everyday I get to learn something new. Keeps things interesting.

I've got a total of 10 add on domain spots available in my current hosting plan. I've used three - my goal is to use all 10 by the end of the month. So that'll be 9 niche/affiliate sites this month (I used two for the first niche). That's my goal - we'll see how I do with that.

About Me: I am a new dad (well, Harper is a year old) and I'm already worried about his college education. Mostly because I'm still paying mine off. My plan is simple - create multiple streams of online income so that the overall amount of all of them comes out to 100 dollars a day. So here it is: each step along the way about how to make $100 a day in 100 days...
