Most of the online marketing training products I see are, at minimum, OK. Sometimes though I get one that stands out. So it is with Erica Stone’s newest offering, Hobby Master: How to build a hobby site with multiple income streams!
The PDF product consists of 63 pages of which 56—after discounting the cover, disclaimer, bio, table of contents and additional resource pages—are pure, well written content. Erica is an “explainer” par excellence.
The basic idea behind “Hobby Master” is to build a site centered around a hobby. As she states in the first paragraph of Chapter 2—Strategy Overview—”A Hobby Master site builds up content around one hobby using a variety of tools. It’s monetized three ways: Amazon, Adsense and Clickbank; a triple threat.”
From there, in simple, easy-to-understand explanations and illustrations she show you exactly how to master this process. Essential to this method is building a website or blog. Instead of telling you to set up a WP blog and leaving it at that Erica provides a level of detail on setting up a blog that I’ve rarely seen outside a dedicated blog setup instruction manual. She comprehensively deals with finding and evaluating the right hobby niche and, once selected, building your site into a destination for information seekers and product and supply buyers.
Additional to the 63 page ebook she provides spreadsheets in both Excel and Open Office format plus a PDF of the spreadsheets which can be printed and filled in by hand. To get you started the spreadsheet lists 246 proven profitable hobby niche ideas. These are all niches on which people spend money. There are also worksheets to assist you in your niche research, analysis and keyword compilation.
The only thing I found in my review copy I disagreed with, in part, was Erica’s take on domain name selection. She doesn’t like Exact Match Domain names. I do. We had a long Skype chat on the subject. Neither of us won.
This product provides amazing value. We’ve all seen marketing instruction materials with substantially less useful information for much more than the very affordable price Erica is charging for this readable, actionable, proven process, instruction manual.
As you can see I liked and highly recommend Hobby Master: How to build a hobby site with multiple income streams!
