page title icon Outdoor Site Case Study (August 2021): New Advertiser, Plans to Sell Digital Products

This outdoor authority site earned $3,896 in August 2021 compared to $3,208 in July 2021. In the previous few months, the site was placed into the “maintenance phase” of the website flip lifecycle. It still is operating in the same phase to maximize profits and build a “war chest” for future investments.

In August, I spent time figuring out what needs to be done to take this site to the next level. I cover the following in this month’s write-up:

  1. Website metrics from August 2021
  2. Profit and loss breakdown
  3. How I negotiated a direct display advertisement deal
  4. How I am setting up digital product sales funnel for 7 e-books
  5. 1-month site revamp plans in prep for Q4
