Now, he setup his blog domain name and called it “fishing.com or myfishing.com” because the name domain name “Fishing with friends” will be long. Zaks setup a Wordpress blog and start writing 2 to 3 articles related to fishing, fishing with friends a day. He put Google adsense to his blog to start monetizing the blog. After a while, he used the money he generates from Google to signup with an email subscription tool to start collecting the emails of visitors from his blog.
He writes an eBook of about 20 pages about “How to Best fish with friends on weekend” and then gives it away for free to visitors who subscribe to his blog.
