3-Site Project

I'm having a hard time finding a starting point this morning. Probably because I slept in and havent had my coffee yet :p

I have the three domains to develop and prepare to go live by Monday, so I think that's what I'll work on this morning. All of them in varying stages of completion. I'm really pushing myself on this project because I'm anxious to see the results of each individual site!

The first will be easy. The domain is already pointed, hosting set up and WordPress installed. All I lack is the template modifications and then the content. The domain is and while I had originally planned to move this blog over and transfer it to WordPress, I have changed my mind and will be using that site/domain for another purpose (at least temporarily while I test out some theories). I chose a simple template, so I think I'll work on this first, because it would be nice to get one entire site out of this 3-site project *completed*.

Also, while I'm thinking about it, I'm going to log into my registrar and point the other two domain names to my host - and set up those sub-hosting accounts. That way they'll be ready to go and I can just work on content.

Done - and the coffee's on, too ;)

On site #2, all I lack is finishing up the sales letter. I made great progress on it yesterday, so there's no reason why I shouldnt have that one up by first thing Monday morning either. This one is a one-page site, a sales-letter, that promotes an affiliate product and links directly to check-out. It completely bypasses the merchants website.

The reason that I am doing this is because I dont like the merchants website, but I LOVE the product... and I also want to test my copywriting skills. I have had relatively no success promoting this product with a direct affiliate link, but I feel confident that this will make the difference.

The 3rd site for this project is the one that my son and I are working on together. It is an affiliate site, completely product-driven, and all of the content is provided by the merchant. Zack is pulling the content and creating each of the pages for the various categories, and I am going in behind him to work on the formatting and optimization. This one is a bit more time consuming, but I think we can get through it all in the next couple of days. A lot of potential there!

The more I write, the more motivated I get - - coffee in hand -- and finding a starting point isnt even an issue anymore ;) I have the template for open and ready to work on, so I'm going to log off and get to work.

Oh - and I got two packages in the mail this morning. I love packages :) One was from Mike Litman, the other from Total Life Success. Mike sent me the Power of Concentration and it looks like awesome material! Mark - from TLS - sent my award and prizes from winning the Best of Success Award. One of those prizes was a digital camera, and there are several other really cool things in the box too :)

All in all - looks like it's going to be another great day!!
