Hi Jeremy and Jason,

 My husband Dave and I are thrilled to let you know that we just hit our first milestone of making $500 online!

When you guys put that goal out there, we had no idea we would reach it so soon.

We joined Micro-Site Profits early in September of 2012, and have followed your guidelines to the letter to build our initial set of micro niche sites over the past 6 months.

Your program makes this process so easy to understand and execute with your detailed, step-by-step approach.  We love the fact that you don’t have to be an expert in a field or commit to being an “authority” to build sites that generate income online.

We’re looking forward to rolling out our next batch of sites in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep you posted on our progress.

Thanks so much for getting us started on this great journey!

~ Eliza and Dave Snow, Micro-Site Profits Members

  1. Hi Guys, Great Podcast as always. I have been a faithful follower for several years now. I could not agree more with the points you make in this episode. About six years ago a friend showed me 99designs and I used it to get a logo created. My experience was amazing and I knew that crowdsourcing had so much potential beyond what 99designs was doing. I immediately set out to find a niche that I could use the same crowdsourcing concept in. I landed on custom tattoo designs. It is a HUGE market and met all my initial criteria. Now fast forward 5 years and is a thriving community of over 12,000 tattoo designers from all over the world creating amazing custom tattoo designs for everyone from professional pinup models (Suicide Girls) to the American Cancer Society (for promotional materials). My point is, there are so many proven trends/ideas like crowdsourcing that can easily be applied to other industries.

    I apply your practices daily and am living my dream lifestyle because of your teachings. Keep up the great work!
