About This Class

so in the course i give you a quick overview and pointers to how we are building a ten site wordpress network of websites using the .ee estonia extension (as part of a e-residency creative project) to help promote our projects and to give us some additional adsense revenue whilst advertising our abilities via our concept sites.

in this quick fire course we discussing briefly some of the following.

  • we discuss about finding a good host
  • plugging in a really good cdn (helps with content load globally)
  • putting adsense and adplugg ads in the sidebar
  • hooking up jetpack so we can blog easily on the go via ipad
  • managing all the websites using managewp (backups, cloning. .)
  • hooking up all the rss feeds to twibble for automatic advertising of posts
  • using convertkit to amplify our projects and courses ( x10 sites! )
  • scheduling time to post blog posts
  • building something designed to exit in a few years time (ie. selling network)
  • why we want our sites to load super fast (ie. low latency)

so why this course?

well, back in 2011 i sold me.dm my domain (from 2005) to evan williams (for five figures) of twitter fame (one of the three founders) - after putting a line in the sand and moving onto something new i realised that i actually had a bit of a bug for vanity urls and after spending many years trying to find short urls i gave up..

. .. until i got my estonian e-residency card and realised that you could make quite a few words up with the .ee extension. i then, as you do - bought with the help of my partner some domain names to show our creativity, concepts and potential bring attention to us as a super niche agency. we also wanted to start a podcast so we needed a name, therefore sett.ee was born! :)

advis.ee, beeb.ee, devot.ee, franchis.ee, germfr.ee, nomin.ee, overs.ee, pledg.ee, unfr.ee - as you well imagine we have some interesting concept ideas and we are slowly rolling out each domain as we get it established.

this course is really a pointer to people looking to build a creative project of wordpress networked sites to promote a creative project you may be considering building. we hope the pointers help.

this course covers building out a big network of wordpress sites. if your looking to bring in income from google adsense this is one way forward. just from one site alone we bring in £25 a month in just ads so far.
