When we started our family site, Marbella Family Fun, the objective was to teach the children a new skill that should be very relevant in their adult life. We knew the project had some potential, but we did not know it would come so fast and so easily…
Today Marbella Family Fun is ranked by Alexa.com (a neutral site ranking popularity across the globe) as the 7,580th most popular website in Spain, and the 270,782th in the world (in the last month), out of many million websites. This is quite an achievement in a short time, and with no money spent! It shows how great our traffic has become and how fast it is growing. A big Thank You to our readers!
And that is only our English version. Our Spanish version, Marbella en Familia, is not far behind. We hope to have two sites in the top Alexa 100,000 very soon. This would be amazing for not knowing anything about the net and spending just one hour or two a day on the project!
This family initiative has also led to an unexpected outcome. I decided to share the experience with the people who could really benefit the most from this business model: individuals earning less than 1,500 euros a month. I calculated they are more than 700 million in the OECD countries (top 33 economies)! They are people struggling to make a living, unemployed, students, retirees… I believe most of them could achieve financial independence with a content site. It would only take some effort and discipline. This is not a miracle solution, but it does work over time. Do you know any better way to achieve financial independence?
I wrote a book called Here´s an ide@ explaining all this. It is being printed right now and will be available very shortly. You can find more information about it and this business model on a blog at Here´s an idea. Let me know what you think?
