No, I don’t mean a new website that is a Shit-Head. It’s a new website named Shit-Head.com. This is sort of my rebel website. The story behind…
Shit-Head.com is one many entrepreneurs of the internet marketing world have experienced. Earning passive income can piss people off! I have a few websites that have been running for years. Shit-Head is fairly new. It was born when I discovered someone who I had been treating kindly, and took on a mini vacation, was saying very rude things about me. The little shit-head was royally mad at me because I didn’t have to attend a 9 to 5 job like his father did. What a Shit-Head, and there it was! Shit-Head was born!
To pay tribute to the name sake, and how it originated, a whole section is devoted to my trek to a passive income. There no reason for anyone else to act like a shit-head because I spell it all out. The story starts, where I started, the bottom. Each week, or day if possible, I write-up the progressive steps I had to take to become independent of the 9 to 5. I go into great detail about the program that is the foundation of my success, and follow-up with where I am now.
It’s been six years since I took that first step to independence, and I’ve never looked back. The key to succeeding on the internet is perseverance! That’s the best advice I can give you, perseverance. Purchasing a website, putting it online for all to see, will not make you an instant millionaire. There are tons of websites out there. You have to bide your time, add to your content constantly (at least weekly), capture the attention of the few people who do meander to your website, so they will pass on how cool your site is. This can take years, but you need to know now if this is a waste of time, or if you need to switch tactics!
You can see how things are rolling along from your endeavors with a Growth Rate. This can help you determine if your website is ever going to make anything of itself. Some websites just don’t cut it. Whether its administration, set-up, website name, or what have you, they just don’t make it. You can get a glimpse of what is to be expected in the future with your website with a simple formula: Basic Growth Rate = (present-past)/past = BGR . Then, multiply BGR by 100 to get your BGR in percentage form.
How do you go about getting the numbers to input? Each month capture your customer/subscriber numbers and record them for about 4 – 6 months. Then, use the first data point that you recorded for the past. The last data point you’ve recorded as the present. Subtract the two numbers, then divide the result. Take that number and multiply by 100.
This can give you a basic idea if your efforts are working in your favor, or if you need to change something.
And there you have it; a path to a web story of one persons success, so you can pursue your own and instruction on how to calculate if your on the right path for success.
