Hey, what’s up? It’s Jerad with Practically Passive, and I wanted to talk to you today about my 30-day challenge to create content every single day for the next 30 days. Now, I uploaded my first video to the new YouTube channel and to my new blog and also posted it in a couple of other places online.
Now, why would I want to do that? First of all, this is a brand new property. Practicallypassive.com is a brand new domain name, a new YouTube channel, new social media, so part of the challenge is wanting to see if I could build something from nothing and what it would take to get it to a decent place within 30 days. What kind of work is that going to take?
I’ve been working at building my passive income revenue streams for a few years now and really been taking it more seriously over the last year, but what if you were to start from nothing with a new property? I don’t really have a plan to try and earn passive income from this passive income blog that I’m creating and from this content. My goal here is to give as much away as I can for free without having to charge. If not, potentially being able to give all of it away for free because I believe that all of us deserve some additional control in our life, especially when it comes to our income because our income does really control the majority of our lives if we allow it to.
The goal is to get as much of this content out for free if not all of it without having to charge for anything. But we’ll see. I’m going to be completely transparent along the way with everybody, talking and showcasing as much as I can about what I’m doing so that way you know what it takes to actually become profitable to build a passive income revenue stream. Those are the things that I want to teach and get across in all of this content that I’m putting out. Unlike most people in this space, I have passive income revenue streams already, so I don’t have to rely on selling things to you to make money.
The 30-day challenge is to give it a good kickstart, a good jumpstart to building that content, to having a good library of information that’s there. I have a lot of stuff that I’ve been doing and learning about over the last several years, and I feel that I have 30 days worth of content that I could put out there, and with that 30 days of content, it will, of course, help grow this new website and hopefully help you get started as well. I want to see how hard it is to actually rank in Google page one for a couple of these blogs. I know it’s going to be really hard for me to rank for “passive income” as a search term, but perhaps maybe some of the blogs that I end up publishing, some of the content I might end up being able to rank on page one.
This is a challenge for me. I want to see if I can achieve that in 30 days because if I can achieve it while doing all of the other things that I’m doing, then I know all of you can as well. All of this is in the name of learning, it’s in the name of sharing and putting out content so that we can all grow and learn from each other. This is a learning experience for me as well because even when I’m sharing and offering something to other people, I want to be learning at the same time. If I’m not learning in the process, then it doesn’t make sense to me. It doesn’t add value to anybody if there isn’t learning going on that goes both directions.
At the end of the 30 days, I’ll be measuring the traffic that the websites received, email signups for people that want to be notified when I put out new content, YouTube video views, and subscriptions. I’ll probably try and do a little bit of stuff on social media, but I don’t know how much time I’m going to have to put into that because social media definitely can take a lot more time, than doing what I’m already doing.
I’m definitely going to attempt to try and rank on page one for a couple of things. I don’t know if that’s going to be possible. I know it’s very challenging. Based on my SEO experience I know that some of the things that matter to Google search are how long a website has been around. It also is inbound links coming from other websites. There’s authority, there’s a lot of different things that are important for the search engines to rank. I’m going to do everything that I possibly can because if I can attempt and achieve ranking, relatively decent ranking in Google search for something like passive income, not passive income itself, but some aspects of passive income, then that’s another thing that I’m able to help all of you as you go and try to build your own passive revenue streams is how to rank in Google search because people are searching for problems that they need answers to, and we need our websites to show up.
You’re going to be solving problems, answering questions, reviewing, doing all these different things, and you need the Google to show the people. That’s where ranking comes into play.
I’m not selling anything here, as I said. This is all free content. I’m going to do my best to make everything that I put out here free. I don’t want to charge for anything if I dot have to. I’m building my passive income streams through my other channels, which I am showing all of you as examples here. My goal is to give as much away of this as I can for free.
Only when I feel like I have something groundbreaking that is just not available anywhere else, something that is foolproof and proven to work, then I might put together a course or something like that, but there’s a lot of people out there shouting, “How to make $4,000 this month,” “How to do this,” “How to do that,” and they make it sound like it’s something that you can achieve over night, and it really isn’t. That’s why I want to put out as much as I can for free so that you can see that I’m willing to put in the work just as you will need to put in the work to build passive income streams as well.
This challenge is just as much of a challenge for myself because I have a lot of things that I want to achieve here, but also a challenge to give back because, as I’ve said many times on the Internet through blogs and other videos and stuff is that I learned everything that I have learned, or every bit of information that’ve put to work has been learned through experience. That experience has either come by trial and error, trying something for the first time by myself without any additional information, or from consuming information online and learning how to do it, and then going and doing it myself.
There’s a lot of information that I’ve consumed out there, and I’m constantly wanting to be putting information back to fill the gaps and to add to what I’ve already taken because that’s what the Internet is. It’s a place where we give and we receive, and if I can keep giving, I’m going to keep giving as long as possible.
I hope that you find this interesting. If you do and you want to follow along, make sure to go over to put in your email address in the subscribe box. I will be sending out updates and letting you know the progress along the way. You’ll get my blogs that I’m putting out, the videos that I’m putting out. That way, you don’t have to come back and check all the time and see what’s new. You can just get notified and see if what I’m posting is interesting, and then you can check it out. Definitely go and do that!
On YouTube, make sure to click that Subscribe button because subscribing to the channel here on YouTube will get you notified when I put out new videos. There are also some goals that I have for YouTube, which are going to require subscriptions and watch time. Those are two metrics that I want to achieve within the first 30 days is a thousand subscribers to the YouTube channel and 4,000 watch hours.
Those are two requirements to monetize your YouTube channel with ads. YouTube’s going to show ads regardless on a video, and I want to be compensated for those, like my other channels on YouTube have monetization and an ad will play unless you have YouTube Premium, which then an ad won’t play. But I want to get to that level and be able to showcase the fact that I was able to attain that within 30 days because most people when YouTube announced those new rules at the beginning of 2018 were like, “It’s going to be impossible monetize. We’re never going to be able to create and get paid on YouTube,” because a thousand subscribers and 4,000 watch hours is an impossible amount to reach.
It takes a lot of time, and so my goal is to try and reach that within 30 days. I’m going to need your help by clicking that Subscribe button and making sure to watch through the videos all the way so all those minutes count towards the 4,000 hours of watch time that I need by the end of the month.
It sounds like a tall order, but they’re goals that I’m setting, and I’m dead set to achieve them within the next 30 days. I’ll be sure to make a video on the 30th day showcasing what’s happened, whether I’m at that goal or didn’t, what I could’ve done better, and how I can improve moving forward. Thanks so much for checking out this blog.
