Today I am interviewing Tung Tran of CloudLivingJourney. Tung is the person who inspired me to start my own niche site case study and I was somewhat successful with that site.
Tung has been inspiring a lot of people lately with his success story. He is from Vietnam and let’s see what’s up his sleeves.
Me:Are you a full time internet marketer or do you have a job as well?
Tung:I’ve just dropped out of college so yes I’m a full time internet marketer now
Me: It takes a great deal of courage to drop out of college.Do you think relying on SEO will be alright for niche sites or any site for the long term
Me:So do think you will do or change for a long term income
Tung: Just look at site like nerdfitness.com or copyblogger.com and copy their strategy write super quality content + content marketing + build a huge following build a list as well but I think SEO is still a good traffic generation strategy for now paid traffic is a great way to drive traffic as well
Me: Great idea, I am thinking on the same lines. Have you ever thought of learning ppc and ppv?
Tung: It’s all about ROI, yes. testing sometimes
