There is a wealth of information about building successful websites.
It’s easy to find tutorials, tips, and strategies. You’re likely to dig into all those round-up posts talking about monetization methods and whatnot but you have to stop and ask how helpful they are if you can’t see how they’re actually applied in the real-world.
Case studies and series bloggers and online business owners have put together allows you to fully explore the possibilities. They take you along, by hand, throughout the entire process. This, to me, is infinitely more helpful than just reading a list of tips. You’ll feel inspired. It’ll light the fire to get you from a passive reader to an active participant.
The following are a few of this case studies and series about building profitable websites …
Viperchill’s Triple X Niche Site Case Study
Glen, Diggy, and Mr. V are battling it out to create a successful (profitable) website.
Each of the individuals aims to take a different approach to the website building process and marketing. Diggy will focus solely on SEO, Glen on social, and Mr. V can do whatever he feels fit.
The series has a unique twist due to this restriction on marketing strategies. Each person will have a budget of $500 until the end of 2013, too. There are regular updates at this time which makes it one of the more exciting case studies we’ve seen in a while.
