A Review Of Jon Dykstra's Niche Tycoon 

Features

This course is full of awesome features. Everything you need to take your online business to the next level is here. 

User Friendly

This course is very easy to use for anyone who has even a little bit of experience with internet marketing. A complete newbie might find it a little advanced. 

Price

You really can't complain about the $197 price tag of this course. I've seen people charge $1000 for a course with less value than this one. 

Summary: Niche Tycoon covers a whole lot of information that would be extremely helpful to anyone who is looking to increase profits with their online business. Jon goes over multiple different ways of monotizing a website and he is diligent about the fact that you must have at least three different revenue streams. He shows us exactly how he has had success monotizing his websites and how we can replicate his success. 

  • Jon Is A Great Teacher
  • He shows Us Real Results 
  • Very well layed out
  • A fresh way of looking at online business
  • Too Advanced For Beginners
  • No 1-on-1 Support
  • No way of talking to other members
  • Must have a decent size budget

I am a big fan of Niche Tycoon as a way to make extra money online. This course covers a wide variety of ways to improve profits with your online business. I've built a few niche sites before but I've never seen a perspective quite like Jon's. He is a great teacher.  

I’ve been following Jon Dykstra via his email list for a while now and I’ve always been impressed with the information he sends out to his subscribers.

He gives out a lot of helpful tips on internet marketing while very subtly promoting his courses Niche Tycoon and Niche Sniper.

Since being a subscriber to his email list I’ve been to his website (Fat Stacks Blog) quite a few times and I have nothing but positive things to say about it so I finally splurged and bought the Niche Tycoon.

I bought it for two reasons. The #1 reason I bought this course is so that I could write an in-depth review on it.

The #2 reason I bought the course is because I had a strong feeling that it was a very good course and so I figured I could learn a thing or two from it.

 

Important 

This review is going to be very in-depth and therefore very long. 

I’d like to direct you to my personal story of online success where you can get some insight to how I got my start and why I have the authority to share my opinion about this course.  

Also I want it to be clear that I am not affiliated with the Jon Dykstra Blog in any way and I have nothing to gain if you choose to buy any of Jon’s products.

Update Nov 23, 2016

Jon has released a huge update to this course since the time I wrote this review.

He’s added a whopping 23 videos. All of the newly updated videos can be found in section 18 so go ahead and scroll down to that section to see my overview of those 23 new videos.

Who Is Jon Dykstra?


Jon Dykstra is a Canadian Attorney who actually quit practicing law to pursue an internet marketing career.

Fat Stacks 1

On his website he talks a little bit about his decision to quit law and focus on making money online.

Basically it sounds like he just had more of a passion for internet marketing and figured he could do well at it so he took the plunge.

You’ve gotta respect his passion and guts because a lot of people wouldn’t dare give up a law career for something relatively unknown.

He does talk a big game and throw around some really big numbers in terms of traffic and income that he generates from his blogs but he always backs it up with proof.

He’s not afraid to show screenshots of his traffic, ad revenue or affiliate revenue.

When I first subscribed to his email list I was a little unsure if he was the real deal or not.

I’ve reviewed a lot of different websites, courses and programs that claim to help people make money online and I have to admit that there are far more scams than legitimate programs out there.

That’s exactly why I was skeptical about the Fat Stacks Blog and also why I decided to buy his course and write a Niche Tycoon review.

Niche Tycoon Overview


 After purchasing the course I was emailed my sign-in details to access it. You then have to go to fatstacksblog.com and sign in using the provided details.

Below is a screenshot of my receipt to show that I actually did purchase the course.

fat stacks 2

Just to be clear, the price of this course has gone up since I bought it back in June 2016. It now costs $197 but this is justified because Jon has added a lot of video lessons since then. This course is absolutely huge and it’s worth much more than the price tag. 

Then you have access to the course. The course is made up of 56 lessons divided into 17 sections. Each section covers a different topic.

The first thing I noticed about this course was that it was really focused on paid traffic and paid ads. He does teach SEO as well but he preaches a three pronged traffic strategy.

Three Pronged Traffic Strategy

  1. Search (SEO)
  2. Organic Social Media Traffic
  3. Paid Traffic

This actually sounded a little bit intimidating to me at first because all I’ve ever focused on so far is SEO. I like SEO and I’ve had some success with it so I have always been a little weary of paid traffic and ads.

With that being said, I’ve always known that it’s beneficial to have more than one source of traffic and I knew it would be great if I could get even more traffic on Jon’s advice.

Lesson 5 – Niche Selection


The first 4 lessons are mostly introductions and setting expectations for the course so I thought I’d skip to lesson 5 where he focuses on niche selection.

He lets us know that ultimately we have to choose our own niche but he can help guide us throught the process.

He gives us 5 basic rules for niche selection.

  1. It should be a visual niche because images are good for paid traffic.
  2. It should be the type of topic that people enjoy sharing on social media.
  3. It should have decent revenue for ad clicks
  4. There should be a good amount of products to promote as an affiliate
  5. There should be lots of great images relating to the topic

 

He goes into much more detail about each of these rules. He explains how to research these rules and determine if your idea fits the bill.

I found it to really be a great source for people looking to choose a niche. Unfortunately for me, I’ve already got a few niche sites but in the future I’ll deffinitely refer to this guide when starting a new one.

He then gives a huge list of some great Niche examples and he explains why they are great ideas.

Then he lists a few bad niches and explains why they are not great.

fat stacks 3

Basically he explains that these niches aren’t great choices because they aren’t shareable. Nobody is going to go online and retweet something about a medical condition.

Sure these niches might be good for SEO but that’s only one source of traffic and he does not recommend trying to make a living with only one source of traffic.

Then he explains how to discover if a certain niche is shareable and popular. It’s a really great resource for someone looking to start a new niche.

So I’ll be skipping to lesson seven because lesson 6 is more about niche selection. Actually lesson 6 is the first video lesson which is something to note.

He discuses more about niche selection and he shows us how to research niches and figure out if they are viable. Some very valuable information that I’ll surely be returning to next time I start a new niche website.

Choosing a Domain Name

 

So lesson 7 is all about choosing a domain as you probably guessed from the title. He recommends selecting a broad domain but one that shows what niche you’re in.

His argument for choosing a broad name domain is so that you have the option of covering more topics on your website if you want to in the future.

He also talks about the benefits of a .com domain rather than .org or .net. Basically he says that .com is better but not a make or brake factor.

 

fat stacks 5

 

 

 

Registering a Domain

This lesson focuses on how to register a domain. It’s an over the shoulder video which is great because you can actually watch him register a domain so that there is no question about how to do it.

Of course in order to follow his steps directly you would have to use Bluehost because that’s who he uses. He says he likes it best but also says its not too important so you can use anyone you like.

The directions are good and he is a good teacher but I will say that the video was just slightly blurry which made it a little frustrating to watch.

 

fat stacks 6

 

 

 Assign a Domain

This is a very short video lesson that shows you how to assign a domain. Again, this is very simple and he does a great job of showing us how to do it using Bluehost.

 

fat stacks 7

 

 

Install WordPress

This is another very short video lesson. This one shows you (over the shoulder) how to install wordpress which is obviously a very important step and one that is very easy when you have someone like Jon walking you through it.

 

fat stacks 8

 

 

Basic Website Set up

This lesson is text rather than video and it covers the different options for hosting and why he prefers specific hosting platforms.

He explains that as the traffic on your website grows your needs will change but he says that Bluehost is a great place to start because it’s simple, effective and relatively cheap compared to others.

Then he talks about themes. This is interesting to me because I’ve never thought that the theme was very important. I just thought it was personal preference but he seems to think that there are some themes that will perform better.

That’s pretty much it. Of course he goes into much more detail but it’s still quite a short lesson.

 

fat stacks 9

 

 

 

WordPress Themes I Like

This lesson is a 9 minute video talking more about themes. He demos different themes and tells us what he likes about them and why they work well.

I really quite enjoyed this lesson because I’ve never heard anyone go into so much detail about a theme and I’ve now learned some good insight on what to look for when selecting a theme.

One of his major points is that you want a theme wide enough to accomodate certain size ads. Since he makes a lot of his money from ads he knows exactly what size of ads he likes and so he makes sure to choose a theme that fits.

I was glad to see that one of his favorite themes is the same one I use on one of my affiliate websites TheWarmestGloves.com.

Pretty cool lesson and I deffinitely learned a few things which is great.

 

fat stacks 10

 

 

 

Blog Post Formatting and Ad Placement

This lesson is a 13 minute video where Jon goes through one of his posts and talks about where he places his ads and why he places them there.

I found it to be really interesting since I’m new to the Adsense world.

I have dabbled with Adsense a little bit but since I’m new to it, I’ve never really known where to place ads or how many ads to put in my posts.

Of course he talks about different ad compnaies that he uses aside from Adsense which is also quite helpful since it is very easy to get banned from Google Adsense.

Another good lesson.

 

fat stacks 11

 

 

 

Plugins I Use

This lesson is simple but helpful. Jon lists every single plugin that he uses on his websites then he explains what they do and why he uses them.

I actually really appreciate this because so many internet marketers like to keep a few secrets about how they’ve been successful almost like they’re hoarding the secrets.

Jon isn’t like that at all, he’s very transparent and it’s refreshing.

 

fat stacks 12

 

 

 

4 Keyword Research Methods

In this lesson Jon tells us about 4 different keyword research tools and how he uses them.

It’s pretty neat to see someone elses methods because I’ve only ever done my keyword research one way.

He shows us 5 different keyword methods and they all look very effective depending on the type of post or website.

He didn’t mention Jaaxy which is the keyword tool that I use and love but he talks about some other good options. Much like a lot of internet marketing, there is more than 1 right way to do things.

Okay that’s all for today. I’ll return soon and keep chipping away at this review. I don’t want to rush it because there’s just too much to cover.

 

Lessons 16-19

In lessons 16-19 Jon goes over (in great detail) the 4 different methods of keyword research that he uses for his websites.

These are all videos spanning from 3 minutes to 14 minutes.

This was one of my favorite parts of the course so far as I put a lot of value in keyword research and his methods are really cool.

My favorite thing about these lessons was that it gave me a whole new way of looking at keyword research.

I already had my own routine and way of doing things that worked but it never hurts to try something new.

I’ll definitely be giving some of these methods a try.

 

fat stacks 14

 

 

 

7 Types of Content to Publish

This is my favorite lesson so far. Here Jon outlines all the different types of content he publishes and he tells us how to do it and why it works for him.

Now he’s not trying to say that these are the only types of content that you can publish he’s simply saying that this is what he publishes and why it works.

He even links to one of his gallery posts so we can see a real life example.

fat stacks 15

 

I will for sure be utilizing more lists and image galleries from now on after reading this. In fact, this lesson inspired some of my list posts, Top 10 List Of Quentin Tarantino Movies, 100 Ways To Make Money At Home and 10 Signs You Hate Your Job.

 

fat stacks 16

 

 

 

Should You Paginate Content

This is a very short and simple lesson about whether you should use paginated content or not.

If you don’t know, Paginated content is when you click on and article that says (for example) 10 best foods for weight loss. Then when you get to that article it makes you click through 10 different pages to see all 10.

I personally find these articles really annoying and rarely make it through all of them because I get frustrated.

Jon says that he doesn’t use this technique and he doesn’t recommend it either.

But of course he lists the pros and cons of using it so that we can make our own decisions.

 

fat stacks 17

 

 

 

Top 4 Sources for Written Content

In this lesson Jon tells us the 4 sources he uses for written content.

The 4 Sources Are…….

  1. Human Proof Designs
  2. Longer Days
  3. Writer Access.com
  4. College Students

 

Of course he does a lot more than just list these sources in the actual lesson.

He goes into detail as to why and how he uses each of these sources and he explains the pros and cons of each.

This makes it really easy to decide which of the 4 will work best for you. It’s very helpful.

 

fat stacks 19

 

 

 

Image Sources

This lesson is very straight forward but also very useful for any blogger.

He tells us about a whole bunch of great ways to get free images and paid ones too.

He explains why sometimes he pays rather than just using the free ones as well.

I’ve already used some of the sources he talks about but there were a few that were new to me so I found it useful and I’m sure most bloggers would too.

 

fat stacks 20

 

 

Email Template for Requesting of Images

This lesson is still on the topic of images but more about asking other websites/companies if you can use their images.

He gives us a template for the email that he sends these companies/websites and so all you have to do is fill in the blanks and you’re ready to go.

He highly recommends only using images that you have permission to use. Another simple yet useful lesson.

 

fat stacks 21

 

 

 

Free Images and Content

This lesson is a 6 minute video more about getting free images.

fat stacks 22

 

He covers a lot of the stuff he already talked about in terms of how to get free images but in this lesson he actually shows us how to do it.

It’s an over the shoulder video that shows us step-by-step how to embed images from websites like Facebook and Imgurl.

It wasn’t my favorite lesson but still there was some useful stuff in there.

 

fat stacks 23

 

 

 

Outsourcing

As the title suggests, this lesson is about outsourcing.

Jon talks about outsourcing things like content creation, video creation and social media management.

He assures us that we aren’t required to outsource stuff to be successful. He said that most marketers start out with a limited budget and so they can’t outsource anything until their website is profitable.

Once you have a profitable website I think this would be a great resource.

He provides us with the three different websites that he prefers for his different outsourcing needs.

 

fat stacks 24

 

 

 

Voice Dictation

This is another video lesson.

He tells us about a voice dictation plugin that allows you to speak into a microphone and it will do all the typing for you.

he shows us how it works and I guess it seems to work well for him because he claims it speeds up his content creation.

I’m not sure if I’m on board with this idea. I’ve never liked this type of thing before and I’m always pretty happy with my typing speed.

With that being said, Jon says that this one is very accurate and effective so maybe I’ll give it a try.

 

fat stacks 25

 

 

 

Ad Placement

This lesson is very detailed showing us exactly where he places his ads and what ad services he uses for each placement.

fat stacks 26

 

Once you’re at the stage of placing ads on your website this would be a really handy lesson.

Jon makes a lot of money from ads and he’s tested a lot of different services and a lot of different locations so it’s actually awesome to see how he does it.

I know with a couple of my niche site’s I’ll probably copy this format exactly since he’s already done the work for me.

Super cool and very useful lesson.

 

fat stacks 27

 

 

 

Ezoic

This lesson is a 10 minute video of Jon showing us why he likes Ezoic and how he utilizes it benefits his websites.

ezoic

 

Ezoic is a platform that allows you to test and optimize content, layouts and ads to increase revenue and user experience.

Well that’s how they describe it on the website. If you’re still unsure about what it does, don’t worry I was too.

Below is a screenshot of Ezoics website where they describe what the different features can do for you.

ezoic 2

I’ve personally never use it before but it sounds very interesting. I think I might give it a try especially since Jon seems to like it so much.

 

fat stacks 28

 

 

 

My Current Ad Networks

In this lesson he just lists all of the ad networks that he uses. pretty straight forward but very useful to anyone looking to place ads on their website.

I’ve posted a picture of his list for your viewing.

 

fat stacks 29

 

fat stacks 30

 

 

 

Managing Ads with a Plugin

This lesson is a 5 minute video tutorial showing us how to use the Ad Inserter Plugin.

I’ve never heard of this plugin before but from what I understand after watching this lesson is this plugin will help you place ads on every post of your entire website so that you don’t have to do it manually.

Seems like a very handy tool. Could be really useful.

 

fat stacks 31

 

 

 

How To Make a Sticky Fixed Sidebar Ad

This is a brief video tutorial showing us how to make a sticky fixed sidebar ad.

Sounds really simple but it really is nice to see it done on Jon’s screen so that there is no doubt about how it works.

 

fat stacks 32

 

 

 

How I earn Affiliate Commissions

This is one of my favorite lessons so far because I started out just doing affiliate marketing online and so I have a real passion for it.

This lesson is also very long and in depth. There really is some awesome information here that I plan on implementing on my website asap.

If you want to get into affiliate marketing or you just want a fresh way of looking at it you really will love this lesson.

 

fat stacks 34

 

 

 

My Affiliate Store Concept

This is a really interesting lesson. Actually I wouldn’t even call it a lesson.

It’s more of an experiment that Jon conducts and let’s us in on.

He is trying something new with an affiliate marketing website. He’s building a separate website where all his affiliate links will be placed.

So instead of having affiliate links on his main website he’ll have them all on a different domain.

He tells us the benefits to doing this (one of which is that affiliate links aren’t great for SEO) and he explains why he’s come to the conclusion of these benefits.

So instead of linking directly to the merchant he’ll link to another one of his websites is with a write-up of the product and of course the affiliate link.

fat stacks 35

He’s doing this on a massive scale. We’re talking like over 1000 write-ups with affiliate links that have to be published on his new domain.

So he’s not writing any of it himself, instead he’s hiring it all out.

He tells us who he uses for the outsourcing and why.

He admits that the quality of the outsourced writing isn’t great for this particular project because it would be too expensive.

He’s already investing $13,000 on this venture.

This is a very interesting concept and I’d love to hear how it all works out. Unfortunately we don’t find out.

Although maybe later in the course he’ll let us know.

 

fat stacks 36

 

 

 

Website Structure

This lesson is all about organizing your website so that it’s easy to navigate.

He mostly talks about silos. A silo is a way of organizing your posts so that you have one big (pillar) article and then whole bunch of smaller articles that relate to the pillar article.

The smaller articles will all branch off from the bigger one. Here’s the image Jon uses to explain this to us.

 

silo

 

Jon explains that although he uses silos on some of his niche sites, he doesn’t think it’s compulsory to do so.

He explains that some of his websites are a total mess and still do fine.

He points us in the direction of a guy named Bruce Clay who is really big on silos. He has an entire website based on this model.

All in all this is a good lesson but nothing to write home about. Mostly I just enjoyed hearing Jon’s unique take on this topic much like some of the other lessons.

 

fat stacks 37

 

 

 

On-Site SEO

In this lesson he goes over some very basic SEO techniques that he uses for both text and images.

None of this was new to me but it was nice to see that I use the same exact techniques that Jon uses.

So anyone who is brand new to SEO you might find this helpful but you also might find that he glazes over it quite quickly.

None the less, there is some great info here.

 

fat stacks 38

 

 

 

Link Building

In this lesson he shows us a bunch of different methods for building backlinks.

There has been a lot of varying opinions about backlinks recently because of the new google update that will punish websites for spammy backlinks.

Jon warns us that some of his techniques might be considered black hat and so we should beware if we try any of them.

I didn’t think any of his techniques sounded bad and actually learned a lot from this lesson.

Despite what some internet marketing training programs might tell you, Jon still claims that good quality backlinks are still the number 1 factor for SEO.

I’ve read a lot about building quality backlinks from Brian dean and although I’m very curious to see how it would help me I haven’t personally put any effort into building them.

A good lesson once again.

WP Review Plugin

This is a short 2.5 minute video talking about the WP Review Plugin.

This plugin will allow your reviews to show up in the search results with the start rating symbol like this……

star rating

I’ve used this plugin before and I like it. It definitely makes your link stand out from the other results.

It’s easy to figure out on your own but Jon shows us exactly how to use it in case you’re not sure.

 

fat stacks 40

 

 

 

Facebook Stuff

This lesson is all about Facebook. it’s fairly short and all in text form but there is some juicy stuff here.

He tells us his posting strategy in pretty good detail.

He also tells us a few different types of posts he likes to send out in order to get more traffic to his website.

Some really useful information here. Short and sweet.

 

fat stacks 41

 

 

 

This is a 1.5 minute video showing us (over the shoulder) how Jon posts link posts.

It’s a very simple process.

All you do it enter your link into the “Post” line and then the article you’re linking to will show up along with the Feature image for that article.

Then you just delete the link itself and the article will remain. Pretty cool actually.

 

fat stacks 42

 

 

 

This is another very short video lesson about Facebook.

This one shows us how to post an image on Facebook. I’m pretty sure everybody already knows how to do this but I guess you never know.

 

fat stacks 43

 

 

 

And last but not least, the tutorial showing us how to post a slideshow on your Facebook feed.

Again this is very simple but I’m sure some people would like to see it done first hand before trying it out.

 

fat stacks 44

 

 

 

Canva

This is a three minute video tutorial showing us how to use Canva.

Canva is an image gallery software and Jon uses it to make grid style image galleries.

It looks super easy to use and I’ll most likely give it a try since there is a free version of it.

 

fat stacks 45

 

 

 

Cheap Facebook Traffic

This is a 5 minute video talking about the potential of making money from the website LittleThings.com

little things

Little Things will pay people to send them traffic.

Jon shows us how you can go the their website and make your own special link that you can share on your website or Facebook page.

Then anytime someone clicks on your link you’ll get paid by the website.

As he’s telling us this he’s still new to this strategy so he doesn’t have any real results to show us yet.

I do agree that his idea is good but I’m confused as to why he would put this in the course if he hasn’t had success with it yet?

Maybe he’s just looking for filler? Who knows but I would be happy to skip this lesson.

 

fat stacks 46

 

 

 

Pinterest

This is a written lesson all about Pinterest as you’ve probably guessed.

There is some good information here about how to grow a following, how to decide if Pinterest works well for your niche and how to get more shares.

There is definitely some good information here but there is one little issue that I have with this.

One of the recommendations he gives us here is to use the Sumome Image Sharer application.

What this does is it puts the Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter symbols over all of your images automatically so that it’s easy to share.

The problem with this is that it makes it difficult to actually see the images because the share symbols are blocking a large portion of the image.

Recently I was reading the comments feed on Fatstacksblog under one of his posts and it was a conversation between Jon and one of his readers.

The reader told Jon that the image sharer buttons made it hard to see the pictures.

Jon agreed and told the reader that he had actually stopped using the image sharer feature.

This just tells me that maybe Jon should update this particular portion of the lesson to reflect his current opinion.

Not a big deal though, still a helpful lesson all in all.

 

fat stacks 47

 

 

 

Tumblr, Instagram, Twitter & Google+

After he’s given us a few lessons strictly about Facebook and Pinterest he now talks about the other social media networks.

He says that he focuses way more on Facebook and Pinterest but he does see the value in setting up and posting regularly to the other social media outlets.

He explains how he automates this process which is very helpful because he doesn’t think it’s worth putting too much time and effort into.

Good info.

 

fat stacks 48

 

 

 

Automating Social Media

In this lesson he covers a few different social media automation tools.

He talks about Hoot suite, Sendible and Dlvr.it.

Out of the three he recommends Dlvr.it even though it’s a paid program.

It will automatically post your new articles to a few of your social media accounts at the same time.

As much as he likes this program he doesn’t recommend using it right from the beginning.

 

fat stacks 49

 

 

Facebook Carousel Ads

I really liked this lesson.

I’ve never really done any Facebook ads before so I was very curious to see how Jon does it.

It’s a 5.5 minute video of him walking us through the process of setting up a carousel ad on Facebook.

He goes into a lot of detail and is very clear about what to look out for and what to avoid.

I’ll for sure be referencing back to this when I start dabbling in Facebook ads.

 

fat stacks 50

 

 

 

Facebook Boost Post Ads

This is a 5 minute video of Jon showing us how to boost a facebook post.

fat stacks facebook

 

He shows us right on his facebook account how he does it. He goes into great detail on this topic and there is nothing left out.

Overall a really good little lesson that I found helpful.

 

fat stacks 51

 

 

 

Facebook Single Image Clicks to Website Ad

This is a 7 minute video showing us the process of setting up a Facebook single image click to website ad.

This is a pretty straight forward process that most people could figure out on their own but again it’s never bad to see it done first hand.

He says that he doesn’t really use these very much because he finds that the carousel image ads work better.

He says that every niche is different so he wanted to show us anyway because it’s worth trying to see if it will work for our niches.

 

fat stacks 52

 

 

 

Ezoic Reporting

This is a 3 minute video lesson showing us how to figure out which of your website pages converts the best.

He recommends using Ezoic to figure this out. I’ve never used Ezoic but I think I might give it a try based on Jon’s recommendation.

This is a very cool lesson. It would be super valuable to know which of your posts converts the best so that you can send paid traffic to those posts.

Glad I saw this and I’ll be coming back to it at a later date when I start using Ezoic.

 

fat stacks 53

 

 

 

Targeting Androids

This lesson is a 2 minute video.

He shows us how to create a Facebook ad that targets Android devices.

The reason he feels like this is important is because there was a recent study that came out that said ads perform better on Android devices because they allow cookies and ios devices don’t.

Personally I have found that my ads perform better on desktops but it’s good to know that Androids perform better in case I decide to target mobile in the future.

 

fat stacks 54

 

 

 

Email Marketing

I loved this lesson.

It’s all about email marketing and the different ways you can monetize an email list. He also touches on some techniques for building a list.

It’s interesting to hear him talk about this stuff because he talks about in a way that makes you realize that internet marketing is strictly a numbers game.

He’s fortunate enough to have a lot of traffic to his websites so he just has to break it all down and figure out the smartest ways to profit from that traffic.

The three ways he covers for monetizing an email list are as so…….

1. Sending Traffic To Your Website

2. Promote products or services that pay commission

3. In-Email newsletter ads

He goes into quite a lot of detail on all of these different techniques.

In addition to that he shows us the ad layout that he uses for his emails.

Very helpful and valuable stuff.

Push Notifications

This is a 4 minute video talking about push notifications.

Push notifications are when a reader comes to the website and a pop-up shows up asking the reader if they want to get notifications when that website publishes a new post.

It’s cool because the reader doesn’t need to put an email address in or anything. They just click allow or not allow and it works on ip addresses so it will notify that computer or device that allowed it.

At the time he’s making the video he has only been using push notifications for about two weeks so he doesn’t have a huge sample size to pull from.

He says he really likes it and the service he uses is called Push Crew.

YouTube

This is a brief lesson talking about YouTube.

I’m personally just starting to learn how to make videos so I found this post really helpful and interesting.

He tells us that he makes simple image slideshow videos using a software called Animoto.

He claims it’s very easy to use and then he just ads the videos to YouTube.

YouTube can really generate a lot of traffic which is great for SEO. Not to mention that Google owns YouTube so that probably helps too.

Another good lesson for sure.

App Creation

I’ve actually been excited for this lesson ever since I saw it as I was glazing over the list of lessons.

I’ve been curious about making an app out of my website because it seems to be something that’s gaining popularity.

As Jon says, you’re not going to make huge money from an app version of your website but you will get more eyeballs in front of your content and that’s what we all want anyway.

This lesson is pretty short. He tells us about three different programs that you can create apps with and gives us the pros and cons.

Quite helpful and for sure another lesson I’ll be coming back to in the future for reference.

 

Section 18

 

Jon has added an incredible amount of information to this course and the best part is that it doesn’t cost any extra if you’ve already bought the course.

I bought this course a few months ago and out of the blue I received an email from Jon telling me about the new videos that he added to the course at no extra charge to current members.

This is huge. I went through all of the extra videos and I’m telling you it’s extremely valuable.

Here’s a brake down of what you get with these extra lessons.

So as you can see, there’s a lot here.

I’m not going to go over every detail of what’s in these lessons because this review is already extremely long and I’m sure there’s enough info here for you to decide if this course is right for you or not.

 

Final Thoughts


So that’s the entire Niche Tycoon course.

I went over every single course so that you could see exactly what’s inside before you buy it.

I want it to be clear that I am not an affiliate of this program so I have nothing to gain if you choose to buy this course.

I will however say that I really really enjoyed this course.

I have a lot of respect for Jon and I learned a TON from his lessons. Sure I didn’t love them all but I really liked most of them and found them very helpful.

I really do think that this is a great resource for anybody looking to make money online.

If I had to find  flaws with it I’d say that it’s not great for total beginners.

I think that most beginners need someone to really hold their hand through the steps of setting it all up.

Sure Jon covers these things but if you had a question or needed help there isn’t a whole lot of extra one-on-one time.

I think if you already have some experience with internet marketing then this would be a great way to go.

I’m sure that if you follow this system closely you would become very successful.

If you are a total beginner or just relatively new then you’d probably be better off with Wealthy Affiliate for your training.

They have an entire community of new and experienced marketers that are there to help 24 hours a day.

Here’s a comparison chart of what you get with each course.

 

Even though Wealthy Affiliate has a lot more resources than Niche Tycoon I still think that Niche Tycoon is worth buying for some people.

In fact I would recommend both of these programs for some people. I am personally a member at both Wealthy Affiliate and Niche Tycoon and I have benefited a great deal from both.

Summary

As you can see I've put a lot of time and effort into this review. I'm really glad I did because I do believe that Jon Dykstra has created an amazing course here. I would highly recommend this course for people who already have some internet marketing experience but just want to boost traffic and profits.
