The Quick Start Challenge 3.0 – 2015 and all that

The Quick Start Challenge 3

So what’s all this about then? This is my post regarding The Quick Start Challenge 3, so perhaps I’d better explain what it is and what it’s all about.

Quick Start Challenge 3

The Quick Start Challenge is Dean Holland’s annual newbie starter system and this is the third year he’s run it, this year with the help of Craig Crawford and Robert Phillips. Their aim is to get people to start a blog either around their own name in the Internet Marketing niche or an interest in another niche, then by getting The Quick Start Challenge particpants to support each other blogs with comments and social shares, to increase the traffic going to them, then by adding monetisation systems to the blogs, to produce a small income for the owners.

As we all know, once you can start making a small income consistently, you are then on the path to making a larger income either by rinse and repeat actions in another niche or by increasing traffic to the existing blog.

The main idea is to show that before it is worth while generating traffic you need to have something for your visitors to look at.

So commensing with week one on 6th July, all the Quick StartChallenge 3 particpants were instructed to

  1.  Get a domain name and hosting,
  2. Set up a WordPress blog site
  3. Write their first post
  4. Write an ‘About Me’ page
  5. Tell the Facebook mutual support group about it.

Dean has been good enought to set up a series of videos guiding those who have never done this before through all of the steps required, and there are surprisingly few technical questions being asked. The mutual support is working very well and there are more than a few who are more expert on hand to offer assistance and guidance where required.

A fair set of tasks for those who have never done it before but, only 4 days into the Quick Start Challenge, many of the participants have set to with a will and produced everthing required. We’re now in the mutual appreciation zone so that lots of people will be visiting lots of the new blogs, adding comments and also doing social sharing – very important for SEO purposes.

So why am I doing the Quick Start Challenge? After all, I’ve been at this internet marketing lark for a long while, even if I only really started making a serious effort at it since April 2014.

Basically, I want this to prove to myself and my wife that it can be done, that it’s not all spam and hussle and that an income can be made from teaching others the basics and beyond. The stage I’m at at the moment is between $50 to $100 a month – enough to pay for me to be online, but hardly income supplementing or replacing. It may take another 6 months or a year, but I’d like to get to the $100 a day stage between passive income and email marketing. Like many others, I don’t need a massive, life-changing income. Just enough to get a nice retirement fund going and keep me entertained in the meantime.

What will next week’s tutorial video bring to us? We’ll have to wait until Monday 13th to find out.

P.S. At the request of some mebers of The Quick Start Challenge, I have removed 2 preceding posts that included blog lists of challengers. For some reason, they didn’t want the publicity! Mine not to reason why.
