Six Figure Website Attack Plan Revealed


Last week I asked for people to join in on my goal to build a six figure website in 2015. This is an aggressive goal and requires a very big plan to execute.

The rough outline of that plan is what I am going to share with you today.

Beyond the normal reasons we need a plan there is one major reason an authority site project needs and plan and more importantly a system to execute the plan…that is what Seth Godin calls the dip.

For an authority site it is going to take awhile before the effort you are putting out will turn into tangible results.

The lifecycle of an authority site and our interest follows a very predictable path…

  1. New idea with lofty goals = Energy HIGH
  2. Idea start getting implemented = Energy still high
  3. The grind of content creation and outreach begins = Initial energy carries us but it starts to weaken
  4. The grind continues, a big post you wrote gets no response = Energy level low

At stage 4 without a system in place to carry the site through the dip a new project that will interest us more will start to get our attention. This is where many well intentioned and useful sites never realize their full potential!

What is the solution to the dip?

  1. Have a plan and systems – More on this below
  2. Be accountable to others – Join the free Google group here dedicated to the six figure website challenge (more details about my progress shared there)

 

Six Figure Website Challenge – “Attack Plan”

This is not a project plan…this is my authority site attack plan!

The basics of any good project plan/attack plan is that it clearly communicates who is doing what by when.

To that end this document is created so that anyone can pick it up and start to formulate a plan on how they are going

Here are the sections of this attack plan. You can get access once it is fully released by getting on my email list here.

Over the coming weeks I will be sharing details about each of these phases in more detail.

But this post is to give you a general idea of the direction we are going as a group all trying to build six figure websites.

Hi Jon,

Nice work, and the greatest plan I have ever seen! In your plan, I am most interesting in Facebook, Pinterest and G+ plan and tracking. I found that Twitter is the easiest to build up followers and having most free useful tools. I am looking forwards to your plan on FB, G+ and Pinterest. Keep up your great work. 😉

    Hi Kevin
    I am far from an expert with Social and have struggled to have it be a successful investment other than a way to outreach to influencers. Hopefully I can finally figure out a system to make it work for my site this year.

Thanks Jon as always! I have joined the Google group and it has been awesome so far! I am in the process of turning my smaller niche site into an authority! I know its not start from scratch but I think from the reaction I had from the site, I believe I can grow it to be so much more in the future. In turn making it an over $5k revenue generator a month! Content is key and more of it is crucial. I am following along intently and can’t wait for more information from you and the group! It improves my site and me personally everyday! So thanks again and I hope to one day share my journey with a happy ending. Good luck with your authority site, I know it will be successful!
