MBP #33: How Tom Drake Built, Bought, and Partnered His Way to a 40+ Blog Network

Tom DrakeMany years ago, internet marketers around the world shouted this “incredible” strategy from the rooftops: “If you could build a site that made $50 a month, all you had to do was make 100 of them and you’d create yourself a nice little income.”

All true. But…

… rarely does a business just generate cash, unattended, forever. Eventually the internet was littered with all of these crappy little websites that made $50 a month, then $40, then eventually zero.

Tom Drake started Canadian Finance Blog in 2009 and in the last five years, he’s taken that same basic idea but improved it.

He made sites he cared about. Sites he would tend to. And with this strategy, he would eventually build, buy, and partner his way into a portfolio of over forty websites. Some are one pagers that sell products. Some are much larger properties that generate significant income.

Learn how he did it in this episode of the Microblogger podcast.
