Self-Employed revolution

The internet is the backbone for a revolution in self-employment opportunities.  While many have tried and failed in this pursuit, many have also tried and succeeded.  There doesn’t seem to be a magic formula for success, but one key element of many plans is tapping into the many niche communities living on the web.

Caroline Middlebrook has written a book exploring one such way to do this:

“One of the most common ways to make money on the Internet today is to pick a popular topic and put together a small website consisting of articles related to that topic and monetize the site with ads. The traffic comes from search engines and once the site is setup, it just runs on auto-pilot. ”

She is providing a free download of her book and uses WordPress (a free software package) as the foundation of her technique.  Very interesting reading.
