Selling on Amazon – Year One

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 16:35:34 +0000

It’s been a bit over a year since I started selling physical products on Amazon (I did mean to do some ongoing posts about it during that time, oops). I’ve learnt a lot in the year, made some great decisions and some total shite ones. I will share a bit here and document where the […]

Changing Times and New Business Models

Wed, 13 Jan 2016 16:14:25 +0000

Well it’s been a while and a lot has changed since I made my last post. For those new here please feel free to browse the archives, there’s a fair bit of decent stuff though bear in mind the age of it. But in short form… Previously I made the majority of my online income […]

Internet Marketing and VAT, do you need to Register? Lessons Shared from a Compliance Check

Wed, 01 May 2013 12:32:05 +0000

This is a very UK specific post (though if you’re reading from elsewhere I’d suggest seeking some professional taxation advice). Also I’m not a qualified (or unqualified) accountant so bear that in mind too (however as you’ll read later don’t believe everything an accountant tells you). When I receive a letter from HMRC I generally […]

Appealing an Adsense Suspension

Thu, 25 Apr 2013 16:40:50 +0000

In my last post I detailed how one of my sites had Adsense disabled due to a violation of Google’s policies, in this post I’ll explain changes made and the appeal process. After receiving the warning email I thought I’d made all the required changes to bring my site into compliance, however obviously not, as […]

Twitter, a social way to earn your pay

Tue, 23 Apr 2013 06:29:26 +0000

Nobody can say I was early to the twitter party, then again I was very late to the domain one and that never stopped me looking at things and playing catchup in my own way. I reluctantly joined twitter very late and am not that social tbh, I wouldn’t follow me, put it that way. […]

Losing a 6 Figure Revenue Stream

Thu, 18 Apr 2013 11:10:10 +0000

I am a big fan of Google Adsense. They’ve been one of my best revenue streams having paid me over a million dollars through the years and I pride myself on quality content and playing by the rules. You know that statement all good thing come to an end well I was somewhat startled to […]

The Return of Self Made Minds

Tue, 16 Apr 2013 18:18:08 +0000

Firstly I’d like to welcome you (back) to Self Made Minds, an entrepreneurial blog where we share the various activities, ideas and stuff we’ve been involved in. We’ve had something of a hiatus from this site, where Scott and I have been up to various business and life experiences and changes. However Self Made Minds […]

The short domain release and PC

Tue, 08 Feb 2011 14:22:03 +0000

This post has been a while in the making, around March last year I bought my initials for £x,xxx – at around the same time Nominet announced they were going to release previously held back short domain names like or Reading the announcement it was clear before going to the general public […]


Fri, 05 Nov 2010 16:37:36 +0000

Little update on the last post I made about a few new buys as I had a couple of emails asking how they are panning out. The catch for £40 did £486 in Oct. 75,000 visitors It’s fairly important to point out this wasn’t just catching an expired domain and parking it, I bought […]

Link building

Fri, 05 Nov 2010 16:22:11 +0000

Found a company doing a novel new trick, well new to me anyway. They scanned my authority website for dead links Then put up some content relative to my dead outbound links on their own site Then email and ask if they can quote my site with link back to me (naturally I agree) When I confirm […]

An acquisition or two

Thu, 30 Sep 2010 16:21:48 +0000

I have been busy looking at existing sites & traffic so taken a break from domain research. Life Insurance Quotes continues to age and is now taking leads, this site is moving forward to the point it’s probably earning just into 4 figures a month, also picked up a couple of other insurance quotes names like […]
