Uh, we had been speaking earlier than the, uh, earlier than we began recording that, uh, I, I feel you stated the most typical query you get is, I do not know the way you do all of it.

After which clearly, we’ll, we’ll get to dive into all the small print of how you probably did it. Now that I type of introed you that, that method, why do not you kinda catch us up on, on what led you to the place you are at now, after which, after which we’ll go from there.

Jen: Yeah, sounds good. So, I kinda began running a blog method again earlier than it was like eight enterprise, you recognize, I used to be one of many OGs like. Weblog about what I ate that day and blagging about what I wore that day. That ultimately transpired right into a weblog that I learn with my sister again. Began it in like 2010 and that is when like AdSense was a factor.

Yep. And we had been like, oh my, we made 10 cents as we speak. That is like the best factor ever. Sending all of our associates to our website to love click on our hyperlinks and all issues. Then we kinda realized like, this is not actually going wherever. I truly transitioned that weblog right into a on-line store, so I ran a web based store for about 5 years and I feel my story’s a bit bit completely different than most of the different folks that you’ve on right here as a result of as a substitute of going head first into running a blog, I received excited by influencer advertising.

So when my website, or when my store was going, I began getting approached by manufacturers to do model collaborations. Backing up a bit bit, we had one little one once I was operating my store, received pregnant with my second and. These to 16 months aside . So we had 202. My husband additionally labored a, uh, loopy job working like 70 to 90 yard weeks.

So he was in a giant assist with just like the household stuff. So I kinda labored, you recognize, early mornings, nap occasions, late at evening. And when our second, earlier than our second was born, that is when influencer advertising was selecting up. So I used to be getting approached by manufacturers. My store was rising, my husband was working loopy hours.

I had two two and I used to be like, I can not do every little thing. I gotta choose one thing. So I type of went down the influencer advertising route, you recognize, at the moment it was so new. I used to be like, I do not know if that is even gonna pan out, however we’re gonna strive it. So shut down the store. Um, I did truly take notes on like when this occurred as a result of it was a loopy time.

So, closed the store down in, um, early 2018, switched it over to the weblog. I nonetheless wasn’t like extremely targeted on the weblog, however I did get, you recognize, site visitors by way of Pinterest that was huge after which, you recognize, did a number of influencer advertising by way of Instagram. I had a good friend inform me about Media Vine and Advert Thrive and how one can truly generate income with promoting.

So then I used to be like, okay, I am getting on Media Vine by the top of the 12 months. So I actually truly did a number of work by way of Pinterest and I dabbled a bit bit with search engine optimization, however not quite a bit. Obtained on assembly mine the top of 2018 with my important website. Once more, like a bit little bit of search engine optimization, however not a ton. Actually relied on social media and Pinterest to drive my site visitors.

Early. In 2020, I made a decision to do an Search engine optimization audit. I actually had no thought what they had been even gonna do, however went by way of that and it was a fantastic studying expertise for me on, you recognize, adjustments I ought to make. They’d a ton of suggestions, so went by way of all that. The top of 2020, I truly took a pair programs on search engine optimization.

One thing that I actually notice is you possibly can study quite a bit about all these various things and you may apply all of them, however what one particular person says does not all the time work on your website. So I attempt to get a great information of a bunch of various folks’s concepts and implement what I assumed would work and take a look at various things to see what would work greatest with my website.

So I did that and began implementing, you recognize, actually heavy Search engine optimization stuff in 2021 that type of like catapulted my important website into what it’s as we speak. I additionally, once I, once I received on a media vine and understood, you recognize, uh, promoting and affiliate marketing online, I made a decision perhaps I ought to attempt to replicate this with different websites.

So I satisfied my dad and my sister to affix me on a journey website. So we truly began a journey. Early in 2020. Ah, sure. You already know, a journey website beginning January, 2020, March, 2020, nothing’s taking place within the journey world. In order that was, regardless that the neatest thought, however we received our website ramped up. Um, 

Jared: and truly received by no means a greater, by no means a greater definition of hindsight is 2020, proper?

Yeah, precisely. 

Jen: Precisely. . However in, you recognize, we truly had been like, nicely, our state was ramping up. Nothing occurs the primary 12 months of, of an internet site anyway, so it wasn’t, it was wonderful. We received that one on media of mine in, when was that? I feel it was February. No, it was a 12 months and a half. So 2021. I feel it was like July, June, July of 2021.

So it took a 12 months and a half. However that one was truly pretty fast to get a media line, particularly being in journey. Throughout that point. After which, sorry, is that this like method an excessive amount of info? I feel everybody’s 

Jared: gonna prefer it. Belief me. 

Jen: We’re gonna preserve going. So then I additionally determined the top of 2020. So my husband labored in insane hours, like completely insane hours.

We had been taking a staycation, um, domestically the place in Minneapolis, the place we dwell, he was imagined to take, you recognize, three days off, needed to work the complete three days. And I used to be like, that is it. I am beginning one other web site to get you out of your job as a result of that is horrible. So I began one other web site, the top of 2020, after which I additionally, in 2021, realized I had a whole area of interest on my important way of life website that received no site visitors.

It, you recognize, I did not get any Search engine optimization site visitors. I received a bit little bit of Pinterest site visitors, however I had about roughly 30 or 40 articles on my important way of life website that did completely nothing. It is a plant area of interest. I am going to share it. I am extra of an open e book, so it is all plant. So I am going to plant content material. Did completely nothing. I made a decision what if I take all of that deliberate content material, put it by itself area of interest website and see what occurs?

I had many specialists inform me that was a horrible thought. Do not do it. Simply let you recognize. Let it’s the place it’s. I did not hearken to anybody and I simply moved it throughout and it like exploded. So all the site visitors that I wasn’t getting there moved it over. It is all plans and I began getting a ton of site visitors to that.

I received that one truly on media mine roughly a 12 months later. I additionally did a number of net tales with that one too, and that one additionally helped get me on media mine shortly, after which my husband truly was capable of stop his job on the finish of the 12 months or final 12 months. In 2021 and we bought a meals particular area of interest website, um, earlier this 12 months in March, April.

That was our first expertise with shopping for websites and we have type of taken that one over as doing all of the technical stuff with that, revamping stuff, writing and content material. And that brings us to as we speak. So I’ve 5 websites, 4 that I constructed from the bottom up, one which we bought. 

Jared: Have a look at that. So that you introduced all of it again and tied a bow on it,

Nicely, I am already each overwhelmed and have a ton of questions. Good factor we now have, it is 

Jen: very overwhelming. I imply, ailing say that many days I am like, my head is spinning and I like do not even know what I am doing 

Jared: anymore. However I would not even know the way to put collectively a to-do listing to be sincere with you, not to mention, uh, truly obtain that.

So many questions. Yeah. I’ve received so many threads we will go down right here and I feel there’s gonna be one thing on this for nearly everybody, for the varied belongings you’re speaking about. Catch us up although proper now. If you happen to can. Let’s set the stage for the remainder of the dialog. Uh, something you are comfy sharing, any web sites that, that you’ve, any site visitors numbers, perhaps an total portfolio, um, uh, income in the event you might, or tough ballpark of profitability.

Just a few issues to provide us context, uh, round these 5 websites of yours. 

Jen: Yeah, my important website, it is way of life website, it is paisley and Uh, it’s extremely lifestyley. It is not as particular area of interest, um, nevertheless it’s way of life. In order that one has been going the longest and I’ve. Between, you recognize, 200, for example two 50 to 4 50, 200 50,000 to 4 50,000 web page views a month.

Um, that one I generate roughly 30,000, um, a month in earnings. After which between all the different 4 websites, um, I did not do the maths, nevertheless it’s in all probability between 5 and 10,000 a month in income for these, 

Jared: so, excellent, excellent. You stated your husband has, um, has left his full-time job and joined the forces.

He did, yeah. Congratulations. Yeah. There’s two of you to sort out this and regular, and I suppose you stated your dad and your sister as. Yep. 

Jen: I am like getting everyone roped in. That is enjoyable, and let’s do 

Jared: this. We’re gonna get achieved with this podcast. You are gonna rope me one way or the other into working with you on a website.

Jen: Yeah, it is nice. I truly was operating a marathon. I am getting my operating coach concerned. I am like, we’re gonna operating and also you’re gonna be my author, . 

Jared: Simply, you recognize, gonna preserve going. Nicely, congratulations on the success. That is a giant deal. Um, and I imply, it is, it is to not be taken calmly. I imply, that is, uh, this can be a troublesome activity and you probably did it on the again of seemingly, you recognize, speak about aspect hustling, proper?

Like seemingly unprecedented quantities of extra obligations in your private life, your loved ones life, these kinds of issues. Mm-hmm. , we will simply kick off by tackling this matter from a excessive stage as a result of lots of people who’re listening try to start out their first mission or attempting to do a aspect hustle mainly amidst circumstances like yours, parenting and full-time jobs, and having a tough time discovering time and steadiness.

Can we, like, how did you find yourself pulling it off? Which I do know is a really broad query, however how did you go about actually prioritizing the place to place your time and engaging in this? 

Jen: Yeah, I’ll say it is all the time the not glamorous reply of I, you recognize, I stand up at 5 within the morning pre, you recognize, pre workplace.

I might stand up at 5 within the morning to get two hours of labor earlier than the children are up. I’d work nap occasions, I’d work late at evening. Um, it is a number of arduous work and you do not see a number of outcomes to start with. Um, which I feel is absolutely irritating for folks of, like, you’re employed, you’re employed, you’re employed on this business.

It takes 1, 2, 3 years earlier than you possibly can truly see something. I’m that character the place I am like, I am gonna do it. I’ve seen folks do it. I’ve heard the outcomes. I can do that. After which simply understanding of. What’s value placing my thoughts or my time and my effort into? I feel lots of people, you recognize, they chase the shiny penny and oh’s implausible proper now.

So I am gonna be on TikTok. Oh, I am gonna do, you recognize, and once I truly was getting severe about my weblog, I needed to draw back from social media and that kind of, and I wasn’t making a living by way of these issues. So it is type of like, I am not, I am gonna take much less cash from social media and I am gonna actually focus in on Search engine optimization and I am gonna create content material and I am gonna, you recognize, have a really technically sound web site as a result of I imagine that that is the lengthy recreation.

You already know, it is nice to have a model deal and make fast, straightforward cash, fast, straightforward cash by way of a model deal on Instagram. However in the long term, I need my website to be sustainable. I need my website to make, you recognize, good cash for the lengthy haul. So then in the long run, it is much less work for me as a result of I’ve set this up for.

Jared: For these individuals who have maybe targeted on non Search engine optimization techniques with their web site. Trigger it seems like that is a little bit of what you had. You had a website that was doing nice on Pinterest, which, you recognize, lots of people are experiencing a number of site visitors losses from, from Pinterest over time. You had a website that was type of influencer advertising, which is absolutely type of thrilling.

However such as you talked about, you are type of all the time chasing that subsequent deal. Mm-hmm. what, um, like how did you get out of not specializing in Search engine optimization and into specializing in search engine optimization? As a result of it is not prefer it’s, uh, you recognize, it is not like Search engine optimization’s simply straightforward to select up in a single day. 

Jen: Yeah. So that you’re asking like what I did to love get into search engine optimization?

Jared: Yeah. Yeah. Like, as a result of clearly you had a really pretty fast success trajectory. You had been working with a website that already had some historical past going for it. However it seems like, if I am studying between the traces, it hadn’t been achieved correctly for search engine optimization, so that you type of had this website. Was sitting there, it had a number of affect, however had no Search engine optimization going for it if at, if in any respect.

So how’d you go about transitioning that website to being targeted on Search engine optimization once you did not actually perhaps know a lot about it? 

Jen: Yeah, my largest factor was taking some programs and I truly labored with an individual domestically right here who, you recognize, gave me numerous pointers and recommendation. So then that method, like shifting ahead, I knew keyboard analysis, I knew the way to arrange a website or arrange an article accurately.

I knew all of the how-tos for shifting ahead. After which I additionally took that info and went backwards and went by way of in all probability at the very least half of my posts to revamp ’em, to make them truly pleasant to get some site visitors that method. 

Jared: Did you discover that a lot of the progress in your, in your important website was results of updating your previous submit or a results of specializing in new content material and writing new content material that was optimized?

Jen: So initially I’d say shifting, it was the brand new content material as a result of earlier to that, I used to be simply writing about no matter I wished to, you recognize, I used to be writing about not nothing that was key phrase analysis primarily based. Mm-hmm. . So I wasn’t actually getting a number of site visitors that method till I understood key phrase analysis and understood, you recognize, age reps and all of that.

There was a handful of posts that I did return and revamp, however from that time on, from what I first understood search engine optimization. It was extra so the brand new posts that I had created shifting ahead. Nevertheless, now I’d say I am going to return now and I, I replace at the very least two posts every week from my important website to replace them for a greater Search engine optimization and that, so I had already picked the best key phrase and now I am going again and simply fixing them and making them higher.

However to start with it was extra so the brand new submit shifting ahead. 

Jared: Yeah. Yeah, that is sensible. Yeah. How do you go about your key phrase analysis? Uh, you recognize, perhaps again then perhaps how it’s 

Jen: now. Yeah. It is type of ever altering. I take advantage of a reps, that is type of my huge factor. I used to have this very technical factor and I, you recognize, with full completely different rivals websites, determine what key phrases they’re rating for, what I can truly ring for now.

It is a mixture of that. And likewise simply, I’ll undergo like tons of concepts that I’ve. I am going to create a, you recognize, an enormous listing of. Concepts I’ve put them by way of into hfs and I am going to take a look at a special, completely different, um, uh, specifics corresponding to their dr. I will not go after a key phrase that has everybody’s rating like 50 or their DRS 50 plus or Proper, you recognize, my, none of mine are over 50, so I am going to attempt to make it the place the dr This would possibly get a bit technical, however, so I am going to search for the board and say if there’s a website that’s, has a DR that is mine or decrease and is rank is getting over 50 hits a month, that is a key phrase that I’d go for.

Does that make sense? Makes complete sense. Yeah. Tremendous. It is one thing that is like everybody’s, you recognize, excessive drs then I do not even rank for it or I do not even strive. If it is one thing that I am excited by, then I am going to undergo and like take a look at associated phrases to see if there’s one thing that is associated to that that I can rank for.

Yeah, yeah. 

Jared: So yeah, undergo, yeah, undergo rivals, discover, um, key phrases they’re rating for, after which weed out outcomes that, um, which are too aggressive. You already know, that, that, and utilizing area ranking as, as a fantastic instance of, of what is aggressive as a result of if somebody’s received a a lot larger DR than you, then you recognize, it’s going to be tougher to beat them out simply on pure, uh, Search engine optimization metrics alone.

Proper? Yep, precisely. That is nice. Mm-hmm. , that is nice. Let me ask you, so you’re going again and updating content material and, and we’ll get into a few of the different stuff about this website that I feel is, is absolutely fascinating. However earlier than I, we kinda transfer on from that. You talked about you are going again and updating previous content material.

I am curious what your standards is, like how do you establish which perhaps two posts every week, I feel you stated. Mm-hmm. that you simply return and replace and what do you do once you, once you replace these. 

Jen: Yeah, so I all the time choose posts which are on web page, like two or three of, of Google. Something decrease. It is not an enormous, it is not probably not gonna do a lot.

Or if I do know {that a} submit is rating on web page one, that’s order to be discovered, discovered anymore, after which we’ll undergo, truly I’ve a staff of gals who assist me. So we’ll undergo, we’ll add FAQs. We are going to, I do, on my important website, I am going to do a number of like purchasing posts. So I am going to, I am going to make it extra, um, consumer pleasant.

So I am going to, you recognize, have all of the purchasing hyperlinks on the prime at that, on the prime. After which extra info within the backside. Um, simply beefing up content material. Um, I am going to put a number of it’s, you recognize, including in additional FAQs and simply actually making the content material a bit bit extra consumer pleasant and extra. 

Jared: Good. Let’s speak about the primary website there.

Um, you had talked about it on the outset, paisley and What, uh, like how are the, perhaps break down the monetization channels for us so we perceive in the event you’re type of extra affiliate or extra advert income. Speak about media Vine. So actually that that advert income’s gonna have a play there. How do you monetize that website particularly?

Jen: Yep. So it is advert income, um, affiliate, after which model work. And it is, I’d say affiliate and advert income are literally fairly equal. They in all probability make up about 80% after which the remainder is model 

Jared: work. Okay. Yeah. So that you, you, you do, um, once you say affiliate, is it, is all of it Amazon or is it different 

Jen: merchandise? Yeah, it is, it is a number of Amazon.

I do a number of Amazon. Um, after which I work with Reward Type and Share Sale. A pair different particular ones. And I additionally, one thing that is actually helped me is working particularly with manufacturers. So I, I’ve a couple of like, you recognize, direct partnerships with manufacturers and creating content material round that model particularly, um, has actually helped.

Simply actually nice residual or passive earnings. 

Jared: Is that one thing you pursued? I imply, you talked about your historical past and influencer advertising and also you had been working with a number of manufacturers, so there’s a number of that left over from that, or do you even have type of a, a method that you simply go about working with manufacturers that you simply truly tactically, uh, tactically, uh, work in direction of doing that?


Jen: so I truly was approached by one model and that type of opened my eyes to, um, working instantly with them. I imply, so that they approached me and I labored with them for six months or so, and I used to be like, that is, it is so mutually useful. So I create content material for them. They’re making a number of extra gross sales as a result of I am creating content material and I am making much more cash as a result of they provide me a better fee charge.

Um, and in order that type of was like my aha second of if I, if I can create relationships with manufacturers instantly after which they’re extra doubtless to provide me a better, a better fee. Um, it is a win-win for everyone. So I have been ready to try this with a handful extra manufacturers. It is, it’s tougher, I’ll say, particularly if manufacturers are, um, on the smaller dimension.

Um, nevertheless it’s been actually, actually nice for me. And now that I’ve a monitor document, I can say, yeah, you recognize, I’ve made X amount of cash with this model on this time interval and you recognize, I’ve confirmed that I can try this and, you recognize, gimme an opportunity. So 

Jared: I am simply fascinated about the one who is perhaps questioning about taking place that highway and attempting to pursue that.

I imply, do you’ve gotten any suggestions for individuals who is perhaps fascinated about pursuing it? Perhaps when to pursue it and when to not pursue it, proper? Like when it is simply not a great use of your time, however then as soon as folks have the correct quantity of site visitors or the best set of, uh, standards, perhaps some tips about the way to go about doing that.

Jen: Yeah. One factor. So I get hit up by a number of manufacturers wanting for wanting me to be an affiliate for them. Um, and one factor I all the time do is I examine the site visitors. So I am going to go to hfs, I am going to put the model into age refs and I am going to see is anybody even looking this model? Is anybody even looking the sort of product?

Um, if that is the case. So the preliminary one which got here into me, I Google them and or I put them into HFS and notice no one was, had, had evaluation posts on them or content material about them, however everybody was looking for them. And so for me it was like a simple sure, I put up a evaluation submit and that is type of what catapulted our relationship.

And, and there was a number of extra content material I might create about that one model as a substitute of simply the one evaluation submit. In order that was one other factor. The one and achieved. It is nice cuz you can also make cash from that one submit, however in the event you can create a ton of content material regard associated to at least one model or one particular product, then that may be a strategy to simply proceed the, the income going up.

Jared: Mm-hmm. . Mm-hmm. . All proper. I’ve to ask you one thing particular about your, your web site I feel is fascinating. I used to be it final evening as I used to be type of get, preparing for as we speak. And, um, you’ve gotten a pair issues in your menu which are, I additionally say very monetizable, very affiliate targeted. I, I simply wished to ask you.

You’ve got a begin right here and in that you simply actually undergo, it seems like your prime posts, or at the very least the articles you actually need folks going to. Um, I seen you had a hyperlink that actually says Amazon on the prime, and this hyperlink goes to your class, um, goes to uh, a bunch of various uh, no, no, it goes with the class web page you’ve gotten about Amazon after which, you recognize, and also you’re about knee dropdown.

You’ve got issues like, the place I store, which is loaded filled with, you recognize, good related affiliate hyperlinks you’ve gotten Store my Instagram. So that you’re, I do not see that always you are doing these items, they appear tremendous intentful in your behalf. Speak about that a bit bit like, cuz that is not there accidentally, is it? 

Jen: No, it is undoubtedly not

Yeah. So one factor that I notice with, particularly with like Amazon or these associates is in the event you can create content material that could be very consumer pleasant and um, that persons are looking for particularly, then your. Chance of getting a sale is a lot larger. After which if they arrive to your website and so they, you recognize, they got here for a one purchasing factor, they notice, oh, I like Amazon.

I am gonna take a look at all of her Amazon stuff. It is simply one other strategy to get folks to remain in your website store extra. That I’d say like affiliate type of, I had began actually specializing in, um, my advert income once I wished to get on Media Vine. As soon as I used to be on media Mine, then I used to be like, there’s extra to this. I do not need all of my eggs within the media vine basket.

Trigger you simply by no means know. Um, and so I made a decision to, you recognize, actually focus in on affiliate. Um, and so there’s quite a bit that performs in with that in what key phrases I am attempting to go for, what articles I am writing, how I am writing these articles, how my website is ready up for folks to buy. Um, and that is actually been proven in, in my, uh, income with associates.

It is actually gone up quite a bit, um, simply with being a bit bit extra strategic on how I am attempting to monetize. And attempting to love embrace affiliate stuff in my content material. 

Jared: Nicely, you actually have me fascinated about it . You’ve got me fascinated about that. I’ve, I’ve heard of individuals up to now doing like a sources web page, you recognize, or you recognize, so it sounds a bit bit much like that.

Simply, um, actually harnessing the belief you’ve gotten along with your readers and leveraging the truth that, hey, in the event you’re gonna go purchase stuff, you are right here and also you belief me. Nicely, let’s, uh, let’s make a deal. You already know, why do not you at the very least take a look at the issues I like to recommend . Yeah, precisely. Uh, okay. Um, so let’s take a step again if we will.

Your web site trajectory was fast when it comes to the expansion that it received. Uh, it seems like about 2020 was when perhaps 2019 you actually began focusing this important website of yours on search engine optimization. Perhaps undergo the expansion of that and what you probably did alongside the way in which to catapult it, I am guessing, to get it to the place it is at.

For instance, you were not writing all of the content material your self. Sooner or later you in all probability received some assist. Um, I am simply curious, like what was the expansion course of like and the way did you navigate that? 

Jen: So I’d say once I first began to focus in on search engine optimization, I did not wanna let Pinterest go away. So truly my first rent was my sister, um, as a result of she is sort of a Pinterest guru and so I employed her on to handle my Pinterest cuz I did not wanna, you recognize, let that go.

However I additionally knew my time was higher spent studying and understanding sbo. And I feel, I feel alongside the way in which I’ve type of, as soon as I hit some extent of, okay, I now not must be doing x, rent that out after which focus my consideration on one thing completely different. So I used to be creating all my very own content material with every extra website.

I used to be like, this isn’t sustainable. So, so I truly. Kind of what I name a mission supervisor for my important website, after which one other gal who’s my mission supervisor for 2 of my different websites. Um, so that they type of assist with enhancing content material, you recognize, sourcing images, ensuring hyperlinks are correctly linked, like all the technical stuff.

After which we now have a staff of, you recognize, 10 to fifteen writers who write all of our content material. Um, so I do all of the key phrase analysis. Um, my staff and I, we create all of the outlines for them. We ship them off to our writers, they write the content material, after which we, um, edit the content material after which put it up. So it is a number of logistics, , nevertheless it, it has been tremendous useful to have, you recognize, kind of a mission supervisor to assist handle.

My websites to it and preserve ’em going 

Jared: in in some ways. I, I simply wanna name out. I feel you went about it, uh, backwards to the strategy that lots of people go about it, not backwards and that it was improper as a result of clearly it was profitable. However I feel lots of people will body up their mindset of, I have to slowly get, you recognize, get out of doing every little thing.

The place do I begin? And so they would possibly rent a author at first you type of began. Truly offloading the factor in your website that was most profitable, the Pinterest aspect. You then introduced on, in essence, a mission supervisor of kinds, after which from there began to work with writers. So I feel it is fascinating the method you went by way of.

Um, did you concentrate on hiring writers first and, and type of, uh, negate that or uh, or did you type of simply stumble into these, uh, these hires you probably did primarily based on, you recognize, type of want or, or one thing like that? 

Jen: Yeah, I’d say I did not actually perceive having different folks write your content material for the longest time.

So when my first rent, she was actually useful with, you recognize, rewriting previous content material and um, serving to with my newsletters and all of that. Um, after which I noticed like, oh, you are so useful. After which she would additionally assist create a few of the content material and I. Perhaps I ought to rent writers. Um, in order that was type of my like, aha second.

I used to be speaking to a, a meals blogger good friend of mine and she or he’s like, oh, I do not create any of my recipes. I outsource that. And I used to be like, that is a factor, you are able to do that. Um, and so 

Jared: thoughts blown. I 

Jen: know. Nicely, and like, actually, a part of me being on this podcast was like, I’ve realized, I’ve realized a lot from different those who I wished to share as a result of like, this can be a, it is an open seat.

Like running a blog is like this large seat. There’s a number of fish, there’s a number of gamers. Like, let’s all be good and like be capable to be prepared to share issues. Like that is, that is my complete factor. I received began as a result of folks shared concepts and you recognize, what they had been making with me. So I am all about like with the ability to assist different folks.

Um, so yeah, so then once I heard that individuals truly like outsource the writing, that is once I was excited by that. So, Um, I do a number of hiring with fiber. Um, after which I truly, one in all my meals websites, I employed a staff of like professionals, skilled meals folks. I’m not a meals particular person in any respect, so it’s extremely humorous that I’ve two meals associated web sites as a result of I’m not that in any respect.

So, you recognize, they’re tremendous implausible with like, that is their experience, that is their, what their careers have been their complete life. Um, so, so that they do all the meals stuff. So, yeah. However getting out of the writing has been a recreation changer for 

Jared: me. You appear actually good at managing. Loads and delegating. Nicely, I imply, any, are there any secrets and techniques you’ve gotten or any suggestions you’ve gotten for, I hate to make use of the phrase secrets and techniques.

Sorry. It is a buzzword. However you recognize, I imply, I really feel like, boy, you’re actually, actually good at clearly focusing your day, your week, your month, your 12 months on what issues, what, the place you possibly can have the best influence. After which bringing folks on, coaching them up and giving them obligations. That is not native to lots of people, however I, it appears like a deep line thread in your success.

Jen: Sure, it has. And I actually like, The factor that made that occur in me is actually having youngsters as a result of I went from my, you recognize, my husband’s working from 6:30 AM until 7:30 PM so I had all of that point to work after which rapidly there is a tiny human in my life and my days are like, you recognize, two hours right here, one hour right here, half-hour right here.

And so I actually needed to get targeted in on what I have to do day by day and what’s truly gonna change the trajectory of my enterprise. And I feel that a part of it’s getting truly actual about what’s making a distinction, what is definitely going to alter the trajectory for me. You already know, a part of that for me was pulling out of Instagram, in order, as I noticed my associates like, you recognize, 100 ok, have you learnt they’re rising and rising and rising.

After all I need that. Mm-hmm. , however I additionally know I am, my time is best spent rising my web site, engaged on my search engine optimization, writing, you recognize, creating content material, um, constructing all that. So then in the long term I am arrange for 

Jared: success. Yeah. So that you heard it right here first. If you happen to wanna explosively develop your web site, have a child, have a child , 

Jen: after which have one other one immediately after which get one other 

Jared: one, then one other one.

Uh, yeah. And have a companion that works, uh, greater than full time . 

Jen: Proper. Yeah. I do know that in all probability wasn’t very useful, however I sincere, like, I feel the most important factor is simply actually taking a deep dive into what’s, what is definitely altering your corporation? What’s making you the cash? The place is your time greatest value spend and spend the time there even.

You already know, one thing else seems higher or appears higher. You already know, lots of people ask me about Instagram and you understand how to develop there and the way, you recognize all that. And it is simply, for me, it is simply not value my time. And I inform lots of people like, what, what’s your out, what’s your purpose? In case your purpose is to have an internet site that is sustainable, making you good cash, like spend the time there.

In case your purpose is to be well-known on Instagram, spend your time there. It is, you recognize, take a look at what your, your long run purpose is after which spend the 

Jared: time. No, I feel it is, I, I, I, I do know we’re joking about, you recognize, have a child, whatnot, however I feel the general level is, is absolutely good. And also you’re only a tactile instance, a extremely tangible instance of what occurs once you, you recognize, you do not want a ton of time if you’re extremely targeted and diligent and goal-oriented about what you do with that point.

Yep. Um, and it is simply actually good to listen to cuz we will all, you recognize, there’s nothing improper with losing, you recognize, having free time and, and, and that type of factor. That is, that is probably not a dialog that we’re attempting to have. It is about being actually targeted and actually detailed in how you employ the time you’ve gotten, no matter that appears like in your aspect hustle or in your corporation, um, on-line.

So it is only a nice instance. Yeah. Um, I wanna ask you a pair questions, however perhaps I am going to dovetail into it by asking like, what do you suppose is the primary motive that, you recognize, your web site, clearly you’ve gotten quite a few web sites, however perhaps let’s simply speak about Paisley and Sparrow. What is the primary factor that makes it profitable?

What, what, what has been perhaps the one factor that you simply suppose has been achieved rather well that has triggered it to develop so nicely? 

Jen: Consistency might be the most important factor. Um, I’m continuously placing on new articles. I am continuously rewriting previous articles. I’ve a weekly e-newsletter that I ship out. Um, we have by no means stopped doing the entire Pinterest recreation, and I’ve diversified.

I feel diversifying my earnings has been tremendous useful in that, you recognize, you are gonna have low months in affiliate, you are gonna have low months in advert, however in the long term, you recognize, it is, It is all going up and it is much less tense when you’ve gotten completely different, completely different income streams. Um, for the, for the off months, for, you recognize, whichever one’s not having a fantastic month.

Jared: Let, let’s discuss a bit bit, um, sooner or later, I feel 2020, January, 2020 was the primary. Uh, nicely, the second website you began, or the primary time you began a website outdoors of your important website. Yep. Um, and also you picked the, the journey area of interest, you recognize, won’t have been the most effective choice was what was coming, however who’ve identified.

Proper. What triggered you, we will snigger about it now. Yeah, we will snigger about it now. That is the one motive why I can, to poke a bit enjoyable at, um, I imply, who would, who would’ve thought what, what had been the chances? However, um, you recognize, we speak about this quite a bit right here within the podcast, like, what had been the drivers so that you can begin a second website?

How did you consider that it was a great use of your time to start out a second website versus, you recognize, clearly taking that point and simply persevering with to pour it into your important website. Like, what made you in January, 2020 resolve that it was time to take that plunge into the subsequent one? 

Jen: Yeah, I feel the most important factor was simply seeing the success that I had with my important website and realizing I had realized a lot.

I had realized search engine optimization, I realized the way to arrange an internet site. I, you recognize, there’s a lot that goes into the success of an internet site. And I type of realized, okay, I realized that I, I’ve, you recognize, mastered that. Can I replicate it? Mm-hmm. . And in order that was my first like, I feel I can replicate it and, you recognize, doing it with my sister and my dad type of made it a bit bit much less scary cuz I am like, I’ve folks serving to me.

It is not simply on me. Um, after which when that one shortly took off, that is once I was like, okay, I can do that. And in order that’s the place the extra blogs got here to be once I, you recognize, once you, when you recognize which you can replicate the success, it takes away the worry and it takes away the what if this does not occur, if it does not occur to, it is not a giant deal, however when your monitor document reveals that it will possibly occur, um, It is, it takes away the worry and the like scariness of beginning in one other website.

Jared: Mm-hmm. . That is true. That is, that is a great level. The second website you began after which subsequently the remaining websites you’ve gotten now, you had been capable of begin with an Search engine optimization focus, proper? As a result of the primary website you had, you type of, you began with a special mannequin, an influencer mannequin, a Pinterest mannequin, however these websites, you have been capable of begin with an Search engine optimization focus.

Uh, have you ever gone about, how have you ever gone about beginning them? What’s, um, you recognize, what’s your course of for getting this website off the bottom? Clearly your websites get off the bottom comparatively shortly, they do comparatively nicely. You’ve got success with these. What is the course of seem like to start out a brand new one? 

Jen: Yeah, get as a lot content material up as potential.

as fast as you possibly can. So I actually attempt to do a ton of key phrase analysis earlier than I even launch it first to be sure that it is a, you recognize, relevant website that, or area of interest that has content material that persons are looking for. There’s a number of work that goes into the precise beginning of the positioning. So, um, that is huge of like figuring out I’ve.

100 plus key phrases to attempt to ring for. Um, after which I strive, you recognize, I attempt to have a handful written earlier than I truly get the positioning dwell, after which it is actually simply get as a lot content material off as, as I can. That is, you recognize, very Search engine optimization targeted and technically sound. 

Jared: Yep. How a lot of a, how huge of a deal for you is, you recognize, this matter of, or this dialog round topical authority, um, you recognize, once you’re type of beginning a brand new website, do you attempt to keep actually topically related in a decent, you recognize, silo construction as they may name it?

Do you type of actually slender in on a sure matter or are you extra broad generally? Perhaps type of like your, your, your first website, which could be very profitable. Mm-hmm. . 

Jen: Yeah. I am undoubtedly extra narrowed down. Yeah. All 4 of my extra websites are, are fairly particular, you recognize, smaller area of interest websites. Um, and I’ll say just like the vegetation one alone has.

Type of proven that I do all of it indoor vegetation. Um, it is not particular to love succulents or one thing like that, which I’ve seen, nevertheless it’s all indoor home plans. Um, and I feel simply displaying, like taking these 30 plus articles off of my way of life website, placing all of them onto one website and seeing it explode. Um, that was, that was additionally like an aha second of, okay, like area of interest websites work.

Such as you take all this content material that’s all associated to at least one one other, it is all interlinking, it is all associated. You set it collectively on one website. Google’s gonna say, that is, that is vegetation like, and we’re gonna rank it larger for the plant content material when it did completely nothing on our way of life website. 

Jared: I, nicely, you, you are main proper into it.

I’ve my notes that I actually wanna speak about this. I used to be having a dialog with any person on. A pair weeks in the past about shifting content material off of their important website and beginning a very new website. Uh, it is so enjoyable that we get to have you ever on and ask you about it since you’ve achieved it, you have seen it’s profitable.

So let’s begin with this, this content material. Yeah. I feel you stated 30 or 40 Submit was in your important, you recognize, very profitable, uh, website. Uh, that was a bit bit extra normal and the content material wasn’t going wherever. Had it beforehand been, been doing nicely after which it, it, um, it misplaced site visitors or was it simply content material you printed round a silo that simply by no means went?

Jen: Yeah, precisely. It by no means went wherever. So my Instagram, I share quite a bit about vegetation as a result of I’ve one million vegetation and folks had been all the time asking about it. So for me, I am like, oh, nicely I’d do a plant submit folks, then I can ship folks to my web site to discover ways to develop a monster plan. Um, and in order that’s type of the way it began was kind of like me saying persons are asking about it on Instagram so I can ship my them to my web site.

Mm-hmm. , I used to be on Vine, I am going to get site visitors that method. That was wonderful, however I did not get a really a lot site visitors from that. Um, and I did get a handful of site visitors from Pinterest, nevertheless it was solely two, about two of the posts. And it was, it was mediocre. It wasn’t that nice. Um, however actually none of it ranked on, on Google.

None of it like 

Jared: it was. How lengthy did you watch for it to attempt to. 

Jen: Nicely, I truly, nicely, I’d attempt to revamp it occasionally, nevertheless it type of received to a degree the place I am like, that is dumb. It is by no means gonna rank. So I am identical to leaving it on the market. And 

Jared: sure. You waited some time, you 

Jen: waited some time for it to Yeah, yeah, it was, I imply, it was in all probability up there for 2, three years.


Jared: gosh. Okay. Yeah, some time. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So the place’d you get this concept and the way did you pull it off? Did you, um, pull it down and depart it down for some time earlier than placing it up within the information website? Did you arrange 3 0 1 redirects to the information website? Like, you recognize, stroll us by way of the precise course of. 

Jen: Yep. So actually it type of began with, um, beginning the journey website and seeing the success with that.

After which, um, simply being like, I’ve all this content material. I, I lastly like, regarded again and I used to be like, I’ve, you recognize, like 30 some articles on this website that is doing completely nothing. So, I am additionally, I am an activator, so if I am like, I am gonna do that and I am gonna do it as we speak. So I actually sat down sooner or later.

I am like, okay, 

Jared: you had me fooled . I am kidding. That makes complete sense. 

Jen: At this time’s agenda is beginning a model new website and getting all this website over. You are 

Jared: the kind of particular person I’d meet for espresso at 10:00 AM and you are like, nicely, you recognize, I simply, I awakened a bit bit earlier as we speak. I began an entire new 

Jen: website.

I, yeah, mainly that. That is me. That’s . That’s me. 

Jared: So nice. So, 

Jen: So I, you recognize, began the factor. And one factor I did notice is I, a few of the posts I wanted to beef up a bit bit. So I did, you recognize, as I put ’em over there, I simply made positive that they had been exa, you recognize, precisely how I wished them Search engine optimization smart and FAQs and all that.

So a few of them I did revamp a bit, I’d say half of ’em had been actually like copy paste, put into the brand new website, um, arrange 3 0 1 redirects. I, you recognize, deleted ’em from my, from my way of life website, arrange a redirect over there. After which, actually, so I moved them throughout. It took, it did take like two weeks to get all of them transferred over after which life received loopy and I simply let ’em sit for in all probability a month or two earlier than I truly began getting extra content material going.

And I might in all probability look again and see it. It did begin to choose up like in a short time, which I used to be truly shocked about as a result of it, they did not do something on my way of life website, like completely nothing. And, you recognize, let’s have a look at. So I began this website. In January of 2021 and by the top of the 12 months I used to be getting near 3000 hits from Google, from in all probability 40 articles.

Jared: So 3000 per day, monthly, per, 

Jen: oh, sorry, monthly. Mm-hmm. , um, uh, these stats every now and then it received loopy and quadrupled to 16,000 in January. 

Jared: Obtained it. So 12 months later you had been getting 16,000, uh, web page views a 

Jen: month. Yep. Um, that is simply from Google. Yeah. So then I did another, um, I used to be nonetheless getting a bit little bit of Pinterest site visitors from that one, not a ton.

Um, after which I additionally did net tales. I discovered that net tales for area of interest websites truly. Very nicely. Um, and so I began doing net tales for my plant website, um, which helped get me on media, purchase an 

Jared: further fast. Let’s speak about that. We had Carrie, uh, Carrie for on in all probability, oh boy. I all the time undershoot how way back it was.

I really feel like each podcast interview I’ve, I’ve achieved was like three months in the past, however that is not the case. However it was, we’ll say three to 6 months to provide me a broad vary. And he or she talked quite a bit concerning the success net tales had for her meals weblog, which I used to be actually bowled over by. Cuz we have not talked about net tales, we talked about a bit bit there.

Uh, speak about your success with net tales. It sounds prefer it was particular to at least one aspect of yours or is it throughout your, your portfolio? You, you are type of implementing that 

Jen: technique. Yeah, so I am utilizing it with 4 of the websites and it varies with the success. I am truly, um, I work instantly with Google, um, in a cohort of different creators creating net tales.

We began this, um, a few 12 months, 12 months. When net tales had been kicking off, they wished to get extra knowledge, is type of what I perceive. I feel they wanna get extra knowledge. In order that they have all these creators which are creating net tales, which was nice. Trigger then we received direct suggestions on what was working, the place to place hyperlinks, all of the issues.

So I initially noticed a ton of success to start with. I feel a part of it, folks weren’t doing net tales, so people who had been doing net tales, we had success. Nice. In, to start with as a result of there simply wasn’t the competitors. Um, now I’d say, so I do quite a bit with Google Traits and I am going to take a look at, um, what’s trending and create tales primarily based on what’s trending.

And then you definitely’ll see tales go viral as a result of it is now trending. And the great factor about that too is so like I’ve created content material for the journey website, um, that I do with my dad and sister. And we simply truly had one a pair weeks in the past that went viral and we’re like, what is occurring? Why is that this submit getting like all this website?

And we realized, There was a brand new, um, tv present associated to this net story that got here out. So everybody was looking about this matter. We, we had an internet story on it, so it went loopy. So the great factor about that’s like they’ll pop up months later. Um, however I do attempt to, you recognize, create new net tales primarily based on what’s trending in Google, if I can determine it out.

Um, and I do suppose that area of interest websites are, have higher success. I feel, you recognize, it is a very particular content material. Um, they’ve, it is simply labored rather well for me. So 

Jared: it seems like you’re creating perhaps particular matters for net tales reasonably than perhaps one strategy can be, I write the weblog submit that’s key phrase researched and key phrase optimized, after which I make an internet story out of it.

Would you say that the matters that do nicely on net tales are perhaps unrelated to the matters that find yourself rating? Nicely, for lengthy, for natural search outta Google. 

Jen: Yeah, so I used to be solely, once I first began, I used to be solely making net tales on, um, excessive rating key phrases. So I checked out all my prime posts, that in all probability what I’d do.

Yep. I used to be creating all the net tales and so they had been doing actually nothing for 3 months. I am like all my associates, like, oh, net day, and none of them have achieved something. After which I simply type of began like willy-nilly placing issues on the market. And also you’re proper, it is like this random, I had one which was like, the way to get up early, and that one like received a whole lot of hundreds of hits.

I am like, it is not, it does not, even in Google, like I do not perceive. So that you’re proper. I feel it is, it is type of like Pinterest the place you throw the darts and also you see what sticks and hopefully, you recognize, there’s an article about a few of the matter that you simply did and that net story will go up, um, and or if you will discover a trending key phrase.

On Google developments that is arising. Then you recognize, you do your key phrase otherwise you do your net story primarily based on what’s hopefully gonna be trending and hope for the most effective. I imply, quite a bit, I feel everyone knows the web site recreation is you throw 

Jared: dart. Yeah, yeah. One thing sticks. And once you suppose you’ve gotten it mastered, you are still throwing simply extra educated darts.

Precisely. Yeah. I imply, yeah, you are aiming at one wall as a substitute of all 4 partitions. . 

Jen: Proper, precisely. I imply, I feel like my complete factor of making all these websites is after I did one, I used to be like, okay, I feel I received it. Begin one other one. You already know, there’s issues that labored nice, there’s different issues that labored horrible, like, nicely I feel I received it once I’m gonna begin one other one.

And once more, it is such as you’re simply continuously like altering, studying extra. What works for this website does not work for this website and. You retain going, , 

Jared: preserve going. That is an effective way to place it. Um, talking of going, we’re operating out of time. I am gonna preserve going, however I, I, um, I wanna respect your time. So I’ve, I wanna get to this, uh, shopping for an internet site earlier than we depart since you, we have talked all concerning the websites.

You’ve got began outdoors of your important one and you acquire an internet site. Uh, what was that? Was that this 12 months in 2022, you acquire an internet site? Yeah. Okay. So what prompted you to go after shopping for an internet site reasonably than beginning one other one, particularly when you’ve gotten a monitor document of success with beginning websites? 

Jen: Yeah.

So when my husband stop his job, he was seeking to purchase a enterprise and try this. He is very enterprise oriented. He is, he is my numbers man. Like, he 

Jared: did not wanna take over the plant website. 

Jen: I imply, he might have, however . He, he, he at one level was like, okay, I am gonna write articles for one in all your websites. And he did one and he was like, that was horrible.

I am by no means doing that once more. Uh, my time is best used elsewhere. I am like, precisely. So he was wanting into buying a website, or not a website, buying a enterprise. Mm. And um, he in the end got here throughout buying web sites and he was like, nicely, here is the deal. You understand how to run an internet site, you recognize, search engine optimization, you recognize, the technical aspect, you understand how to, you recognize, know if it is a good area of interest, all of the issues he is actually good with, just like the due diligence on, you recognize, the monetary a part of it.

And so we make a great staff, proper? Yeah. Yeah. And, and so, um, and he type of was like, hear, we buy a website. It is, you recognize, a 3 12 months return till we get our a refund on the positioning. Um, Together with your talent set, we might in all probability shorten that after you do what you want to do to, you recognize, get extra site visitors and all the issues.

Um, and so let’s strive it. And I, and our first one we purchased, it was a smaller website, so I feel it was like a $45,000 funding. Um, nevertheless it was such a great studying expertise for us to buy a website, understanding that complete course of. Trigger it is a, it is a, it is a wild course of of buying websites and rapidly you are the proprietor of this web site and you are like, why did, why is it arrange like this?

Why did they do that? You 

Jared: inherit all of the challenges and upsides of, of, of the positioning. Yeah, 

Jen: yeah, yeah. So it is good when, like, you’ve gotten all this content material there. Um, however there was a, the one which we bought, there was a number of issues that I’d’ve achieved otherwise had I began it from the bottom up. Um, nevertheless it was good for us to study, like, okay, shifting ahead, we’ll, we’ll in all probability buy extra sooner or later.

Um, And it was only a actually great way for us to undergo it and, and perceive the method and, you recognize, what are issues to search for? What are issues to, I’ve a number of questions now that I’d ask a possible vendor on their web site. Um, yeah. 

Jared: Did you purchase it off a market? Did you supply it by yourself or one thing like that?

I imply, I am simply curious the place you turned once you began wanting, um, to, to search out 

Jen: one. Yeah, we did it by way of Empire Flippers. Mm-hmm. . Yeah. Um, and I’ll say it was very nice to have any person else undergo. So this website had a ton of affiliate, um, hyperlinks that was the large a part of their earnings, so that they managed all of the transferring of the hyperlinks and all that.

In order that was, that was, you recognize, very nice. I assumed I used to be gonna need to undergo all of the hyperlinks and alter them, however they took care of that. So it was good having like an precise particular person to undergo. Handle all of that. 

Jared: Yep. Uh, and, and, and so how, how’s this like, as we type of wrap up, how’s the construction of, of your, of your portfolio now?

Trigger we, it seems like you’ve gotten your husband taking part in an element. Uh, you’ve gotten, you’ve gotten different household which are, which are taking part in an element. You’ve got those who work with you. Like what is the construction seem like for this, uh, this portfolio of 5 websites? Yeah,

My husband got here in sooner or later and he is like, I feel we should always begin one about lawnmowers. . I am like, what? He is like, I used to be researching new lawnmowers and I feel there is a want for garden, a lawnmower area of interest.

So, um, we in all probability will not begin a garden extra area of interest web site, however, um, 

Jared: we by no means, you by no means know. You may have began by 10:00 AM 

Jen: I You are proper, you are proper. . Um, we in all probability will begin extra websites. I feel it is actually enjoyable and it is, uh, once more, it is, I’ve realized a lot and so I simply would like to preserve replicating what I’ve realized and particularly like understanding, like having a mission supervisor who helps handle every little thing.

Having the writers who know what they’re doing and getting them arrange. I feel we have type of created a system, um, in, with a view to replicate. Um, the success that we have had. Um, so yeah, we’ll in all probability be making extra, um, in all probability promoting, promoting off one or two in, you recognize, two to 3 years time. Um, and who is aware of?

I imply, arduous to say the place it’s going to go. It is arduous to say, however for positive preserve a pair for positive. In all probability south a pair and greater than doubtless both buy or create a couple of extra, um, in a pair 

Jared: years. So I had this interview completely summed up simply now, and I noticed that I left off a significant query. And so on the threat of completely diving again in, I’ve yet one more query for you.

I do know in YouTube the feedback can be there if I do not ask this. And thank goodness folks cannot remark the podcast or else they’d be saying the identical factor. , um, you have grown this portfolio up and we did not ask about hyperlink constructing, one of many huge elements that generally goes into constructing websites, and but generally.

Simply contact on that. If we wrap up, um, the way you guys deal with hyperlink constructing, in the event you deal with it in any respect throughout your websites. 

Jen: Yeah. Um, to be very frank, I do not do a number of it. Um, I do not do a number of it. I used to do quite a bit once I first was getting launched to Search engine optimization and everybody says, it’s a must to hyperlink constructing, it’s a must to do har, it’s a must to do all of the issues.

So I attempted to start with. Um, however once more, it is a type of issues the place, the place’s my time greatest value spent? Is it value happening har day by day, 3 times a day, replying to feedback or questions that will not ever get used? Or is it higher spent creating high quality content material?
