Freedom Writers Domains to Make Money

Freedom writers domains to make money is another strange title, but a necessary one if I’m going to convince those nice people at Google that this blog is being written by a freedom writers and his posts are in some way involved in the world of the freedom writers! Well, it’s a start, anyway! After my last post, Heath Ledger Not Really dead, a silly spoof designed to attract a lot of traffic, which I have to say worked quite well, I’d like to get into the side of domains and how you can use them to make money online.

Domains and the make money niche are what I really want to hark on about today, or more precisely expired domains and the buying thereof. I’ve not been as busy as I was in the beginning of my new obsession with second-hand domain buying mainly because my current freedom writer’s writing gig is keeping me too busy to really get stuck into them and as a result I haven’t bought any for a while.

But I will be again soon!

As for the ones I have bought, I’m a bit stuck as to what to do with them all! Well, not exactly stuck, as I’ve put wordpress blogs on them all to get them into a live state so that Google doesn’t think they’ve been neglected. But I’m so short on time, I simply haven’t been able to fill them all up with the freedom writers content they so desperately need to re-enter their niches and compete for the top pages in the SERPs as well as start to make money for me.

Which was the whole reason for buying them in the first place!

One site has been getting more than its fair share of the content, mainly because I know a good deal about it’s niche and can rattle off plenty of long posts and get it some keyword authority – I’m talking about my Make Money Hints blog which I shall endow with the anchor text: make money fast.

That should give it a bit of a freedom writers leg up and with all its new fresh content should help it to start to do what it’s domain was bought to do and that’s to make money!

Other domains in other niches require a fair bit of research on my part, which is tough as I don’t have that much tome to spare on them, which is why I’ve been contemplating a slightly different idea for them.

Vic at Blogger Unleashed has got me thinking along the lines of using BANS to set and forget the domains that I really haven’t got time to do much with for now, but I have also been thinking about using the already set up wordpress blogs on those sites and maybe writing some simple scripts to use the BANS idea on them without going the whole way with setting up BANS on them. Its all a case of freedom writers time constraints and what I can and can’t do with it. My train of thought seems to be leading me to think it will take me time to learn how to use BANS, whereas I already know how to use the little known eBay affiliate program to earn commission from putting people onto products on eBay’s list.

I was doing that several months ago using craigslist to promote this and it worked to a point where I was making some commissions from CJ but not enough to warrant the work I was putting in. Now BANS uses the same idea just they have site templates and scripts that do all that work for you.

So what is there to think about? Just get BANS and get on with it!

Well… I’m a freedom writers and a tinkerer by trade – I love to mess with things and see what I can do with what I’ve got which is probably why I’ve never got time for anything… Ha! I just fancy trying out this little theory of mine and seeing what happens first. Ok, if it flops, then I just get BAN, kick myself in the pants for wasting time and get on with it.

But if it works, then I’ve accomplished something and I like to accomplish things by going against the grain – a character defect I’m sure must irritate the hell out of people that know me! Some call it stubbornness! Some call it plain pig-headedness, but what the hell.

At least when I’m wrong, I admit it, learn from it, pick myself up, dust myself off and carry on!

So it’s just a bit of experimental fun for me to try this out and see where it goes and all I lose is a little time (ok and probably a little money) but if I don’t do it, then I’ll look back on my life and I’ll always wonder… why didn’t I try that little experiment with that domain when I thought of it?

I ‘ll pick a niche, a domain and a product and then set it up and see. Then I’ll report back here in, say a month to see what it did…

I like a good conundrum…

Freedom Writers Booster

Freedom Writers Terry Didcott has a nice ring to it and I think I’ll keep this newly adopted moniker as it not only gives me a much more interesting handle, it also gives this site a better chance of appearing somewhere decent in the search engine pages for a keyword that is actually searched for in freedom writers.

So as for this post, which trails on nicely from my last one entitled Freedom Writers Writes, where I posed a nice thought provoking question right at the end. Well, I bet you’re dying to know what my own answer to that would be.

Well, I have to admit I gave it some thought, because you have to remember that I am now doing what I’ve always wanted to do, or more correctly am currently enjoying what I do to make money by freedom writers writing for a living. So by posing the question I was really pushing out my own train of thought in that not only am I doing exactly what I enjoy doing but I’ve been actively working on an offer I recently accepted which is doing more of what I’m already doing.

That’s writing!

So as for being a freedom writers, the commission I have taken on does restrict me somewhat in that there is a lot of work to be done in a fairly concentrated timespan, but as it’s merely more of what I already do, then for me it is perfect in that the extra money allows me to continue working at this as a full time occupation instead as only part-time and relying on odd jobs to keep my less than healthy finances afloat!

So my answer to the question is actually “C”. Although being a happy freedom writers I can’t see myself dropping dead any time soon I’m also under no illusions about the fact that any online commission can and will end at some point depending upon the nature of the freedom writers commission.

So the same thought process should be going on inside the heads of anyone who has a mind to attempt to make a full-time career out of the Internet. If someone offers you a fair price for your work even though it means a hefty workload in the short-term with a possibility of future work coming as an off-shoot of it, then you should never reject it (unless they are taking the piss with the money). In fact you should grab it with both hands, because if it doesn’t last too long, then you are at least able to boost your bank account in the short term while you nurture your freedom writers Internet Marketing business. If it does last a while, then you are even better off by being financially secure for the medium term at least – and you can still schedule the extra time to work on your IM business in the meantime.

So this freedom writers should stop this now and get back to working on the stuff that is making money to boost the bank balance!

When things are going well, doesn’t it just put a great big smile on your face?

Freedom Writer Writes…

Freedom Writers writes a right one across clue on the keyboard!

If you’re shaking your head in sympathy believing this freedom writers has fallen off the back of something and banged his head, well it’s not true I tell you! That opening gambit is actually a flashback to the end of the 1970s when, at a Stranglers concert in North London Hugh Cornwell said of Dave Greenfeld (the keyboard wizard) “he’s the only man who can write a right one across clue on the kleyboard” – the “l” in kleyboard is how he said it! Ok, it got recorded and ended up on the white single that accompanied the album “Black and White” which is why I remember it so well.

What in the hell is he on about?

Freedom writers write what the hell they want to write about, because they’re freedom writers! As I am now (self appointed) officially one of the freedom writers, if I feel like writing about a 30 year old Stranglers concert, I will! If you don’t want to read about it, then you’re probably too young to remember the frenetic punk era of the late 1970s in London in particular where it was at it’s height. I was there as a teenager who could legally drink alcohol (which by then the novelty had worn off) and liked to attend many of those off the wall gigs just for the sheer and electrifying atmosphere that went down at them. Ah memories…

Back to the present.

I’m not going to write about how to make money or how to succeed in Internet Marketing or any such thing right here, because this is not that kind of blog – its niche is freedom writers writing and writing is what this blog is about because its author is a writer who has the freedom to write whatever he blessed well wants and that makes him a Freedom Writers.

Ha!

Am I about to spring something unexpected and awe inspiring now? Is that what I’ve been building up to, because let’s face it, I don’t usually write nonsense just for the hell of writing. Mmm…

If you were offered the chance to do something that you were very good at and knew it would pay very well but it would cost you a lot of your time to do it, what would you decide to do?

A. Take it on and wring every last cent out of it for as long as you could stand it and then jack it in and go back to treading water?

B. Reject it?

C. Take it on and keep it up until it kills you (ok that’s a bit over the top, but you get my drift)?

What would you do?
