I own several niche websites with total monthly revenue above $40,000 USD per month. You can read my niche site income reports here. My income reports are unique in that I do NOT include revenue from Fat Stacks. I find it very odd when income reports that purport to teach how to grow niche sites derive the lion’s share of their revenue from the very site that is supposed to teach you how to build niche sites.
I’m in the trenches building out real websites daily.
My training doesn’t offer generic training that you can find for free.
Instead, my training reveals little-known strategies only someone who actually does this stuff for a living knows. In fact, my training reveals tips and strategies that take your traffic and earnings to the next level. We all know the basics. I’m not interested in showing you things you can find out for free.
I’m interested in revealing to you strategies I discover and use as a result of constantly improving my own niche sites’ performance.

My Courses and Training
All courses have been updated for 2020!
1. The Fat Stacks Bundle
I sell my courses individually or as a bundle (Freelance Writing course not included). The bundle saves you money. Below are all the individual courses.
2. Pinterest Magnate
Pinterest Magnate is my step-by-step course on driving Pinterest traffic (and lots of it) to niche sites and blogs.
For one niche site I drive 300,000 monthly visitors from Pinterest.
The methods taught are specifically for the latest Pinterest algo updates in early 2020.
3. Long Tail Deep Dive
This is the ultimate guide to finding low competition, long tail keywords. Whenever I’m asked from someone just getting started which course they should get, I tell them this course. The reason is that my entire online publishing business is based on finding and writing about keywords that have low or no competition. The thing is usually there’s more searches for so many of these terms than is reported. Moreover, they’re far easier to rank for especially if you’re not into risky link building.
4. Content Site Autopilot
From hands-on to hands-free revenue-generating content sites. Over the years I’ve received many questions on how to set up systems, workflow and successfully outsource content publishing in an effort to scale. I’ve spent a great deal of time honing this process. In fact, it constantly evolves. I liken content production to manufacturing.
This course, which started fairly small, has grown into a huge, multi-module training program.
5. Natural Link Building Formula
Learn how to attract links naturally with your content.
I much prefer planning and publishing content that attracts links than having to spend time and money on building links. I know I’m not the only one because this is a very popular course. People don’t like building links – it’s costly, time-consuming and risky (Google doesn’t like it).
Besides, if you want to be a top-tier online publication, act like one. Top tier sites don’t invest the lion’s share of resources into building links. They invest in content.
6. Display Ads Deep Dive
Your ultimate guide to monetizing niche sites and blogs with display ads (i.e. AdSense and other ad networks).
One could say the Fat Stacks claim to fame is blogging about how you can make a great living monetizing with display ads. 80%+ of my niche site revenue is generated from the humble display ad. For me, it’s the ultimate monetization solution because it gives me the freedom to cover any topic and still earn revenue.
My Display Ads Deep Dive reveals everything I do and know about successfully monetizing your blog or niche site with display ads.
7. On-Site SEO Deep Dive
Learn everything I do for on-site SEO (structure, schema, etc.) for ranking content.
I don’t sell SEO services. I could, but I don’t. I like running my own show without clients.
However, I do manage to haul in a ton of organic search traffic every month to my various niche sites. Currently, the haul is in excess of 1 million monthly visitors via search. Chalk up another few hundred thousand from Pinterest.
My search traffic isn’t an accident. It’s the result of setting up my sites’ on-site SEO properly and publishing lots of killer content.
8. Niche Exponential
The ultimate guide to building specialty blogs such as recurring commission niche sites and others.
The name of the game with this course, especially the B2B niche site module, is setting up lucrative passive income niche sites.
This is a fun but super valuable one-off course that breaks down in detail different niche sites I operate. The most popular type that people love is what I call the B2B niche site. These are very different from my usual niche sites in that they’re small, focused, have a very targeted audience and earns primarily via affiliate offers sent in an automated email newsletter.
9. Freelance Writing Deep Dive
Learn how to start and build a six-figure freelance writing career. Course created with J.J. Mullane, a 6 figure freelance writer.
On the face of it, this course might seem to not fit with my other offerings, but it actually fits very well. Freelance writing is a great way to transition from job to publisher. That’s how I did it. Freelance writing provides a more stable and immediate income yet gives you the flexibility and time to work on your own projects. I would not have made it without freelancing.
This is a behemoth of a course coming in at 60,000+ words of dense, info-rich content on how to start and grow a freelance writing income stream.
10. The Fat Stacks Forum
Please note, while you can pay for only the forum, forum access is included with every course.
Join 600+ bloggers and niche site publishers to discuss everything about building a successful online content publishing business.
Yes, this forum is very active with daily posts, many active members and new members joining all the time.
And yes, I’m active on it daily.
Need answers to questions about content publishing? Book a one-on-one Skype consultation with Jon Dykstra (aka me). Sometimes an email answer or course info just doesn’t get to the heart of the matter. If you want to discuss your blog or niche site in-depth, book a consultation. I encourage you to send your questions to me in advance. If I can’t help, I’ll refund the money.
