Remember That Website You Started… 

 June 24, 2016

By  Jim Daniels

Today I’m going to show you a clever way to take any abandoned or dead website project and revive it instantly.

By revive, I mean turn it into a passive income generator. You can do it all with a few clicks and be finished today.

I know this works because I did it myself. And I’ll show you my own example.

So let’s get started…

Hey, we all have at least one (or a half dozen!) projects that never got off the ground.

You know the story, you buy a domain for an idea you have. Maybe you start a website and maybe even add some content.

Then life gets in the way. Before you know it, a year or more has gone by and the project falls off your radar. What seemed like a great idea, never makes much, if any money.

Well there is a very simple way to revive that project in under an hour. You can turn any stagnant site, even a domain you held onto but never did much with, into a fully monetized, video based affiliate site. Without making your own videos.

This works in every niche imaginable. But it is perfect for niches such as self-help, health, fitness, weight loss, nutrition, sports, video gaming, cooking, technology, automotive, entertainment, spiritual, hobbies, crafts, dating, relationships, financial, trending news, marketing, how-to and training videos.

Here’s how to do it.

Step 1: Put WordPress on the site.

If you don’t already have WordPress running on the site, this is very simple and free, and it takes about one minute.

You just log into the cPanel admin area at your web host and click WordPress. In case you do not know how to do this, here is a short video from my web business training site. (It may be a little different in your cPanel depending on your web host, but this gives you the basic idea.)


Step 2: Decide what you want to teach at your site, and what products you want to sell.

Don’t worry, you will not have to write any articles or posts or create any videos yourself.

You will also not have to create any products to sell.

With this fast-action strategy your content will be curated videos from youtube, and your site will be monetized by recommending related products and services via affiliate links.

Therefore, all you need is a basic plan to transform your site into a monetized, video based affiliate site.

So, just decide what topics you want to teach, then pick a few related products to recommend at Clickbank, JVZoo, Amazon, Commission Junction, etc. For example…

(more after this quick message from Jim…)

For example… Lets say your site is all about fitness. You could teach different fitness workouts such as cardio, abs, butt, belly, etc.

And you could recommend a top selling fitness course on clickbank, and may be a few Amazon products if you want.

Once you have this basic plan together (topics + products), move to the next step below to implement it.

Step 3: Get this 1-Click Video Site Builder Plugin when it is released to the public today at 10AM ET.

1-click-video-site-builderThis is where the real fun begins. Because this awesome new plugin from my buddy George Katsoudas (aka the Greek Geek) does virtually everything for you.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on this plugin a few days before the release and I was floored at the simplicity of this.

You just install the plugin at your WordPress site. (That takes all of one minute.)

Then you set up a basic “monetization template” with your affiliate link. Again, a one minute task.

Next you enter a keyword and let it search for related videos.

Finally, you select the videos you want on your site and click one button. The plugin then creates video posts complete with text description, comments and a link to your recommended product.

You can even schedule a bunch of posts for future dates and run your site on auto-pilot.

Here’s a video showing you how this plugin works, using the fitness example…

Without a doubt, this is the simplest way there is to create a brand new web project. And yes, it works just as well for reviving an old abandoned project too.

How do I know? Because I tested out this plugin a few days ago on an old domain I had.

If you’ve been on my list a long time you’ll remember my make-a-living-online.com site. It was a very successful training program where I helped thousands of people get started earning online.

I eventually phased out the course in favor of new material so the make-a-living-online.com site was sitting idle, wasting any traffic it was still getting.

Well, thanks to this plugin it is now a passive income generator, showcasing all the top Internet marketing products and services I use and recommend.

I transformed it very quickly using WordPress, the basic 2016 theme included with WordPress (it’s mobile friendly!) and the 1-Click Video Site Builder plugin.

Check out the new Make-A-Living-Online.com and let me know what you think by posting below. (Be sure to tell me if you remember the old site and print book, I love hearing from longtime subscribers!)

Oh, one more thing…

If you want to try out this plugin for a niche site idea you have, or for reviving an old idea, here is a huge bonus pack you’ll get if you buy the plugin from my link.

1-click-video-site-builderThe bonus pack includes a free traffic program you can use to get all the traffic you need, plus a bunch of other awesome plugins you can use to to make more money at your site.

You’ll get instant access to those bonuses inside your JVZoo customer area.

About Jim

I gave up a life of jobs in 1996. Since then I've been earning a living online.

I write books, create software, license info-products, affiliate marketing, build membership sites, design websites and more.

I prefer this over my old lifestyle of getting up early, commuting to work, coming home to have a few hours for my family and living for the weekends. Now every day is a weekend. I work when I want and answer to no boss.

  • Great idea! I’ve been carrying a bunch of domains that I haven’t found a use for, and with unlimited hosting this is a no-brainer!

    • Yeah, why let them sit there earning nothing Jeffrey. Just install this plugin, paste in your favorite affiliate links and then let the plugin find a bunch of great videos. If you have a few youtube channels you really like you can even have the plugin create video posts only from that channel. And if you’re too busy to do it manually every week or so, just set it on auto-pilot by scheduling posts for the future. I love that set it and forget it option so you can run your blog on auto-pilot. Just select how many posts you want to be added to your site every week: 1, 3, 7, 15, 30 or 100. The very first post will be published right away and the others will be scheduled in a balanced but still “human-like” way, with some natural variation thrown in… I still recommend you check in on it once in a while though, just to make sure your posts have text descriptions and comments you want to display. You can tweak the post content after the posts are created just by editing the post like normal. Really cool stuff.

    Appreciate the info. Well presented and useful.

    • My pleasure Joe. Glad you like this little trick and innovative affiliate marketing plugin. And hey, check your email for a gift I just sent you in appreciation of your comment today.

  • I love this idea too – I keep paying to keep domains active that I’m no longer using but don’t want to lose – this will work well for me. Jim, I’m travelling at the moment and tried to purchase the product but it didn’t go through to JVZoo – you did say something about it not being available just yet?

    • Yeah, that’s a great use for it especially if you can have unlimited domains on your web host. May as well generate some passive income from them. The order link is now active Jenny so you should be able to get this plugin now. Lots of orders are flowing through my affiliate link. Try again via the button on my bonus page.

    • Were you able to get it Jenny?

      P.S. Be sure to check your email for a gift I just sent you in appreciation of your comment today.

  • I do not have a website yet but I am thinking of creating one and need all the help I can get. I’ll reread this post over the weekend and will have a web site set up next week.

  • Jo Merriam says:

    This plugin looks great! I do have a half finished web site that has been neglected for far too long. This will make it so much easier to finish!

  • This looks like a great product Jim. Thanks for the presentation. I’m a still a newbie, so I must ask would the videos “reside” on my website? Looking forward to trying this out! Thanks.

    • Hi Ann. Yeah, my subscribers are loving this one. It’s a pretty slick plugin. In answer to your question, the videos are on Youtube and they would embed into your site within each post. But they play directly from youtube so you are not using bandwidth for the videos each time they play.

  • Joseph Krush says:

    This is a great idea, because all you have to do is use WordPress on any topic that you wish, install a bunch of plugins, and it’s all free and easy to do. Love it!

  • Great way for newbies to actually start a project and build confidence

  • Rod Hamilton says:

    I just bought this plugin today. looks really good, comes with and absolute heap of good bonuses too.
    That’s how I got to your site Jim there was a Non hyper link to Bizweb2000 and I had to have a look at where it went LOL

  • Sarah Nichenut says:

    So, I have a boatload of domain names that are about to expire. I have to decide if I’m going to let them go, or pay almost $400 to keep them from expiring (bought them all at the same time…dern-it!). I got the plugin this morning… I can at least run my own experiments to see if they can pay for themselves within the next 10 days.

    Nothing to it but to do it, right??!!

    • Hi Sarah. The domains in niches that have lots of affiliate products and related videos at youtube may be a perfect fit for this plugin! I would spend $400 on domains though, I’d only keep the best ones for resale or for monetizing via affiliate links.

  • Woodrow Mack says:

    Hello, Jim! This is such an outstanding idea


    Woodrow (aka woody mack

  • I followed the link to make-a-living-online.com, and even have the old book in front of me that I bought from you some 15 years+ ago. Great revival of an old domain. I’ll let you know when mine is revived. Thanks

    • Thanks John, I appreciate the kind words. Yeah, it was nice to bring that site back to life after all these years, and it is now generating affiliate commissions on autopilot, thanks to that cool plugin!

  • I also love the idea about utilizing the 1-Click Video Plugin and I can’t wait to start making money from my website.

    Thank you
    Jim for sharing

  • Really good solution to my problem of not having enough time to curate content. Love the simplicity and am going to have to drink some Red Bull to allow my web dev brain catch up to my out of the box brain. LOL!
