Starting Up a Micro Site

This post contains affiliate links.

Earlier in the week I decided to try my hand at a microsite after being given a Flex Belt product to try for myself I thought I didn’t really have a true "health/fitness" blog and I would chronicle my experiences and other fitness related specific articles on this microsite.

My primary goal for the site is to earn some income from affiliate sales of the Flex Belt and other fitness related products through either Amazon affiliate or direct affiliate partnerships with said products.

So my new Micro Site about Weight Loss Belts will focus on my experiments and trials with the Flex Belt as well as showcase other products I have tried, reviewed or think look promising to help people become fit.

When starting up a micro site it is good to see how much competition you are up against, so I did some research with Google Adwords Keyword Tool, found # of searches monthly, saw what sites were being targeted and wanted to make sure my domain name had my targeted keyword in it which it does.  It will be interesting to see how quickly I can start making an ROI on this site but I did get the domain name for free so other than investing time I spent 0 money to put the site together.

It was though reading some other bloggers who mentioned it is easier to build 20 sites all making $100 a month income each than to build 1 site and bring it to make $2000 per month.  I am going to test that theory, but this is a spare project and will no way slow down my work on DragonBlogger.com which is growing more popular by the month and gaining an average of 20% increase of readership each month since January.
