I recently did an interview with Chris Guthrie to discuss some of his early online ventures and some of his recent successes. In this second episode of the Niche Pursuits podcast, I discuss how Chris went from being fired from his full-time job to selling a website for six figures just a short time later.
Chris is a great example of someone who took the time to build a large authoritative website, monetized it with the Amazon Associates affiliate program, and then sold that site for a healthy profit. In addition, Chris also shares some of his early website ventures and some of the lessons he learned along the way.
Finally, Chris also goes into some details about his current business of buying and building up existing websites. He shares some specific examples of sites you can go and check out the whole way through. In addition, he also provides some insight into the projects that he is currently working on and has planned for the near future – including building more software tools.
Here’s a few of the topics and sites mentioned on the podcast:
A home for entrepreneurs turned investors
A hodgepodge of investing, startup, and online business discussions
- high-value email newsletters
- tips on sites for sale
- a podcast
- networking opportunities
- with more planned for the future
