On January 1, I started a secret niche site (Pat Flynn style!) and have been working on it pretty consistently.
I wanted to share more about it here, as it’s turning out to be a fun experiment in seeing how I can grow something without using any of my own social capital to share/promote it. It has grown only through organic traffic, white hat SEO, good honest content and new Twitter friends (it has its own Twitter account, but that’s all when it comes to social media).
It’s also an interesting case study in how someone completely unknown in the land of the Internet can start and grow an audience, engagement and a passive income stream without any prior contacts or connections.
