About

Gonna make some mad cheddar, yo.  Cheddar, Mr. White. Fat Stacks. Dead Presidents. Cash Money.  We’re gonna own this city.” – Jesse from Breaking Bad TV show:

I love that line.  I loved the show Breaking Bad.

And that’s how the title of this blog came to be.

Let’s make some fat stacks.

What’s FAT Stacks Blog all about?

The lion’s share of this blog outlines what I do to make money with various niche blogs.  These blogs are in run-of-the-mill niches… not the “make money online” or “internet marketing” niches.

It’s all about launching successful blogs… at least the way that works for me.

Fatstacksblog.com also covers topics on being an entrepreneur, running a business, software, technology and pretty much anything having to do with digital entrepreneurship.

Who is this guy that likes Breaking Bad a bit too much?

I’ve been around the block working online for a few years in a number of niches.  I love publishing niche sites.  In 2009 the niche site concept appealed to me instantly.

That’s what I do… I publish informational and entertaining niche sites that generate revenue from ads and product promotion.  It’s the online magazine model and I love it.

This blog shares what I do to build successful, popular and profitable niche sites.

While I make money from Fat Stacks, the lion’s share of my revenue is from other niche sites not related to the “how to make money online” or “entrepreneur-related” niches.

I publish 7 other niche websites, which I feature in income reports.

What I share on this blog is how to make money in all kinds of niches.  It’s based on my real portfolio of sites.  In other words, Fat Stacks isn’t my only site.

In fact, FAT Stacks is just a side thing.  It’s a fun project.  I think it will make money (it better), but what I teach is based on creating killer magazine style sites in all kinds of niches as well as smaller, high-value niche blogs.

My background

When I like something, I tend to push the limits.  I loved school and ended up stringing together  a few degrees including B.A. (philosophy major) followed by an MBA and then a law degree in Canada.

After finishing my law degree, I practiced law for 6 years in British Columbia, Canada.  I focused on criminal defence and personal injury law (litigation), both of which I enjoyed.

This was when the Web was starting to grow quite fast.  The law firm I was at needed a website (many lawyers were just launching sites at the time).  I was tasked with hiring a web developer to get us online.

I found a very good company who knocked it out of the park. They were progressive at the time with SEO and blogging.  The website they built included a blogging platform, which was novel at the time.  They suggested I write extensive blog posts about the areas of law we practiced.  I started blogging weekly as much as I could (weekends and evenings).  Not only did it start working almost immediately (very little competition at the time), but I loved doing it as well.

I studied SEO and content production to further grow our law firm site.  Within months we were getting a lot of new clients every week.  I built out more websites (one for each practice area), all of which were a huge success.

At that point I built a non-law site which also took off.  That was the beginning of my blogging career.  By that point my law practice was very busy as was my blogging business.  I had to choose one; I chose blogging and never looked back.  Since then, I’ve launched several niche sites and blogs and continue growing them to this day.

My goal

My goal with my niche sites is to grow all 7 of them so they each earn at least $10,000 per month from display ads and affiliate marketing.  I’m a long ways off for several of them, well exceeded that with one and am getting there with others.

    Hi Jon… Also loved “Breaking Bad” lol. I have a site that last month almost hit a million views and believe it or not, it happened without any $$$. Now, I don’t have any past experience in developing a Web idea but I was told during the development that this was a real good one and people were saying it would have big impact. Over stretched every dime to make it…

    I am hoping your as good a guy as I think( Girlfriend says you have honest eyes) and you have a moment to talk . I could really use a Mentor or Strategist or even Strategic partner. Maybe you can use me as a test sample or Guinea pig lmao, I’ve had worst done…

    Hope to hear from you

    Hi, Jon. I’m interested in buying Niche Tycoon. Is this method still work? Will you keep this course updated after I bought it? I’m still in high school, so maybe I will buy it the next month. Need your answer. Thank you 🙂

    I blog majorly in the music niche that I crossed 200k pageviews within 3 months. Though Google update affected it , left but it later picked up now having some good(though not much yet) from Bing now.

    Though about the mega site you talked about in your post ‘diversifying traffic’s hope you get the idea soon.

    Lastly, don’t mind if we exchange mail…think I can lend a hand to getting some search engine juice like you want.
