This week I started a new project: a viral page (in spanish).
What is a “viral page”? Hard to describe, but in my mind, it’s a page that depends on social/viral traffic (as opposed to SEO).
So it will be full of “trigger-happy” stories, hoping that people will share them on Facebook/Twitter.
The idea is to monetize them initially with Adsense, and then move on to other offers (affiliate offers, CPA…).
For content, I have hired two part-time writers from Upwork. Aside from their monthly salary, these are the initial expenses
Hosting: using my current Bluehost VPS server, if/when traffic starts growing I will consider moving to a more powerful server
Domain: $9 in Godaddy
Theme: $59 in Themeforest (Bimber Theme)
Logo: $5 in Fiverr
I will be using Facebook to promote the posts that I add to the site.
I’ll keep you posted monthly on income-expenses, and lessons learnt.
There are 2 sides to have in mind
For traffic, the only initial source will be Facebook ads.
For conversions, I will need to check the best offers. Adsense is probably a good way to get started, but there might be other sources of revenue. I’ll also keep you all posted on this.
