Back in September of ’06 I sat down and wrote a little 12-page ebook that outlined how GrownUpGeek.com had grown from nothing in January 2006 to getting several thousand unique visitors per day and earning over $1,000 per month by May 2006 – and how after one year the website is getting approximately 15,000 unique visitors per day, has been featured as one of the original Adsense Success Stories (unfortunately removed along with all of the older success stories in mid 2012 when Adsense revamped their success stories pages) and is and generating $4,000 – $5,000 per month in revenue.
After writing the e-Booklet I made one post at the Digital Point Forums about my new prose and sold hundreds of copies over the next 6 months. Not only did I sell nearly 1,000 copies but the eBook was “stolen” and resold without my permission twice – this is the true measure of the success of an ebook!
In the six months that the ebook was for sale I made a few revisions and expanded the ebook to about 30 pages, and now I’m ready to publish version 4 of the eBook. Version 4 will be posted here in my bl0g and will be available to everyone. I plan on publishing one chapter approximately every-other-week beginning in May of this year.
If you have a new website or are thinking about creating a website for the first time you might be able to get a few ideas from reading it.
