How much Does It Cost To Start A Niche Website?
Well, let’s break this down for you so you get an idea of how much you can expect to pay for the first year of your passive niche website.
- Domain: a domain name is the name of your website please choose a .com for the best results, everything else is just not worth your time. a .com domain name from Namecheap retail for about 12$ a year and normally if you install an app like honey or search online for coupon codes you can get this down to as low as like 7$ for the first year. We have a whole post about choosing your niche and domain so don’t rush off to buy one until you read that post here: Step 2: Setting Up Domain Hosting & SSL
- Hosting: now having a domain name is useless without having hosting, your hosting will point to your domain name in simple terms and this will make it available for the world to see. If you’re just starting out I’d suggest and use on all my new niche websites Namecheap’s Easywp the First month of hosting is a 1$ and then it’s like 5$ a month after that is you choose to pay monthly. However, if you purchase the yearly package it’s like 25$ for the year. Read our post about setting up hosting Your Domain & SSL: Step 2: Setting Up Domain Hosting & SSL
- SSL: The simple version is SSL is the little green lock you might see in a browser this means the website is safe and secured. These days most browsers are moving towards this being a must and if you don’t get one it will make your passive niche website look unsafe. they are normally about 12$ a year. Read my post here about setting SSL up the smart way 🙂 Step 2: Setting Up Domain Hosting & SSL
Total cost of about 50$ for a year.

Do you want the freedom to go on a holiday whenever you want and share memorable experiences with your friends and family thanks to words and video content you have uploaded to your website?

I know this feeling, having worked for minimum wage for over 20 years. Niche websites have added so much to my life, and not just wealth.
How much & When Can You Expect To Make Money?
You have gotten this far and I’m happy you’re still reading. Most people will scan through your content and or read the why do you want to start a niche site and see it involves helping others first, writing helpful articles answering questions people have, making pictures for Pinterest and uploading a short video or 2 to youtube and that’s it, they close the window & move on to some get rich quick scheme.
I’m not going to lie what you earn is dependant on your ability to either write or create video content or your ability to outsource quality content for a small investment.
Generally, you could expect to see about 2000$ + a month in about 20 Months. However before payday for a year or so you will see nothing and it will look like nothing is happening at all.
Our course will give you step by step guidance and support during this time. With our question and answer forum available for you to ask any question you have about your website.
A Passive google friendly niche website needs time to be indexed by Google and this is why we build it today and in a year or so it will start making money as the articles you have written start to get indexed by google search and other search engines.
With all this said, the amount of money and in how fast you can expect to see it. Depends on the niche you choose, the quality and usefulness of the articles you write and the amount of time you have to keep the articles coming consistently.
Niche questions will teach you how to scale your niche website so you can make it explode, but for the basis of the course, it’s about creating a scalable niche website that by the end of the course will be on track to earn about 2k a month or thereabouts.
Disclaimer: This is not a get rich quick program, this course will help you create a website that will take time and effort before it makes money if it makes money at all. we can help you have the best chance of succeeding by giving you a clear guide on how to create a site and the content for it. The actual writing of the content will be up to you and thus the expected earnings from your niche site will be different from other peoples results.
How Do You Earn An Income With A Passive Niche Website?
Ok so let’s break it down a little so you really can see how to make money with a passive niche website. It’s actually very simple while you may think it’s hard. but don’t worry we are here and so is the community every step of your journey.
Now if you want a super passive niche website; one you only have to log into now and then to add a new article or video. Then advertising in a sidebar or in a post will be the number one way to make money from your site.
However, your other options are affiliate products, these are products other people create and you get a commission for recommending them to other people when they purchase from your affiliate link.
Last but not least and depending on your niche is info products, these are a great way to also make money from a website. like this course I’m creating for you, this could be an info product if I wanted to charge for it. but it could be something like a 10-page book telling someone how to do something from start to finish with pictures and you could charge a few dollars for it and sell it over and over again for years.
How Much Time Will You have to Invest?
You could create a passive niche website with only an hour or two a night and with this time i would spend it writing or creating video content for your website.
If you can create anywhere from 20 to 40 articles or video on any given niche you choose you will be well on track to making 2000$ a month from your passive niche website.
2 hours a night over 3 months should see you hit the 20 to 40 articles mark.
So, in short, it should take you 3 months of 2-hour work sessions a day to create the content you will need for your website. Now if you want to outsource the content you can drastically reduce this time but it’s at a cost of about 35 dollars US per 1500 word article.
We suggest writing this content on your own it’s free and only you can best represent your brand.
So after all that what do we know about a passive niche website?
We now know we have the ability to set our own passive niche website up for less than 50$. All we have to do is write 20 to 40 articles of about 1500 words each helping people by answering questions in specific niches.
We now have a question to ask ourselves, am I going to commit to this?
All I can say is don’t let your fear stop you from creating amazing content online. For a yearly payment of 50$ for the chance of making 6 figures from one website you really have to ask yourself if you can’t afford to lose 50$ on a chance of a better future for you and your family.
So What’s My Next Step? I’m Ready To Do This
So what’s next, well, you have 2 options, you can either ask a question or join our community and chat with people in the forum. Or you can go to the next post in the course and begin your journey following our course in creating amazing passive niche websites that will earn you an income online.
