Podcast 124: Niche Site Beginner to Expert - How Nick Hasche Built a $10,000 a Month Site Portfolio - Niche Pursuits
Today, I’m excited to bring you a guest interview with Nick Hasche, a niche website builder.
Nick started building niche websites just a little bit over a year ago. He actually started right alongside Niche Site project 3.0, which is why I’m really excited about this interview because he learned how to build niche sites by following along with that project and implementing the things that I was teaching.
Nick has taken what we taught and implemented some of his own unique angles as well. His portfolio of sites has reach revenues of $10,000 a month.
If you’d like to hear how Nick has done that, go ahead and listen to the interview. We go through his entire process from keyword research, content creation, and of course, link building as well. He has some very unique strategies to consider. Overall, I hope you enjoy the interview.
In this episode, Brian and Joe discuss maintaining legacy WordPress websites, including how to decide between third party code vendors.
Welcome to the Post Status Draft podcast, which you can find on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and via RSS for your favorite podcatcher. Post Status Draft is hosted by Joe Hoyle — the CTO of Human Made — and Brian Krogsgard.
Brian and Joe discuss many of the factors that are a part of maintaining a website for the long term. They discuss it both in the sense of when you own the site (like Brian with Post Status), and when you are doing long-term client work (like Human Made with retainers).
There are several things to consider, whether it’s in your own code, or the decisions you make on which third party developer’s tools to use.
Ben is joined this week by Spencer Fry, founder of TypeFrag, Carbonmade, Uncover, and Coach, to discuss carryover lessons of successful startups.

In this episode of The Creative Business Podcast I speak to Marcus Blankenship about building better client relationships. A ‘bad’ client can be incredibly depressing and really dampen your enthusiasm for future projects…but more often than not, it’s through our own actions and systems that a client goes ‘bad’ in the first place. Listen to today’s episode to see how you can avoid ever having a ‘Client from Hell’.

"You’re not supposed to optimize for money; you’re supposed to optimize for happiness." - Mr. Money Mustache (aka Pete Adeney)
Mr. Money Mustache (@mrmoneymustache — Pete Adeney in real life) grew up in Canada in a family of mostly eccentric musicians. He graduated with a degree in computer engineering in the 1990s and worked in various tech companies before retiring at age 30. Pete, his wife, and their now eleven-year-old son live near Boulder, Colorado, and have not had real jobs since 2005.
This begs the question of “How?” In essence, they accomplished this early retirement by optimizing all aspects of their lifestyle for maximal fun at minimal expense, and by using basic index-fund investing. Their average annual expenses total a mere $25-27,000, and they do not feel in want of anything.
Since 2005, all three of them have explored a free-form life of interesting projects, side-businesses, and adventures.
In 2011, Pete started writing the Mr. Money Mustache blog about his philosophy, which has grown to reach about 23 million different people (and 300 million page views) since its founding. It has become a worldwide cult phenomenon, with a self-organizing community and incredible news coverage. This episode explores his story, philosophies, and routines.
Without further ado, please enjoy my conversation with the one and only Mr. Money Mustache, Pete Adeney.
YOU WON’T BELIEVE the announcement the guys have today. This episode was recorded within the last week, because the news is too amazing to wait. Can you imagine having software that can analyze your story for audience, marketability based on genre, and more? This is an episode that’s hot off the presses with ideas that will help authors, and watching them come to life!

Something cool: Sean’s happy about today’s show; Johnny is happy about the StorySeller Bootcamp; Dave is pre-preparing for a move to Austin. Amazingly huge things are on the way with Sterling and Stone: a story analyzer, market research done for you, and a discoverability engine for authors. The software will complement StoryShop, and will also stand alone. Michael explains the genesis of the story analyzer, that sounds totally sci-fi, and how it’s based on chaos math. Michael explains how the math works behind the software, and how it manages to come to a human-like conclusions. Sean owns the word ‘magical.’ There’s a ‘magic button’ that will allow you to know what changes will make your book more marketable, and point you toward direct marketing applications. Despite the ‘applied intelligence’ versus ‘artificial intelligence,’ the software points YOU to make the decisions. It points at problems; it doesn’t write the book for you. An amazing case study involving anime and how the software suggested an ingenious approach to make a book into a graphic novel series. As for marketing through social media, the software also can suggest the best posts and when to post them. While Smarter Artist is write better stories faster, the software brings in ‘sell’ better stories faster. The software can help you know who your book will appeal to, and the results of your writing can be surprising. While there isn’t a timeline, and there’s a lot MORE behind the scenes, you’re going to be floored as we continue to release information.
