I’m starting a new experiment this month. This post will be brief as I’m in the middle of re-arranging two websites, adding pages and email addresses, creating logos, testing new bits of software, and generally spending a bunch of money that will either be a great investment, or at worst a tax write-off.

I’ve enrolled in Adam Enfroy’s Blog Growth Engine, and following the steps to a T to… see what happens.

The goal is to turn my old domain, scottgutelius.com, into an affiliate marketing website, using best practices taught by Adam and his team.

First steps are complete. I’ve purchased this new domain, migrated my the old scottgutelius.com site over here, and will be uploading the new site later today (I think).

The Privacy Policy, Terms and Conditions, and Disclaimer templates have been purchased. I’ll be adding those momentarily. Then I’ll need to figure out what to put on the non-informational, non-transactional pages of the site. Home, About Me, etc.

Adam says that using a personal brand — one’s own face and name — makes it less likely that a person will quit, so… as much as I like to hide behind a keyboard, I guess I’ll follow his instructions.

The focus, to start with, will be AI tools for copywriters, bloggers, and other content creators. It’s a growing industry with lots of opportunity for affiliate commissions, and it’s an area I’m familiar with: I’ve been working as a copywriter for about 4 years now, and at an AI marketing company for 7. So putting those two experience together, testing out the latest and allegedly greatest new AI tools designed to speed the creation of high quality content, avoiding the pitfalls of ChatGPT’s authoritative nonsense (in philosophy it’s known as sophistry: a veneer of logic covering up total BS; ChatGPT has it covered).

It’ll be interesting to see how all this works out. I’ll be documenting the journey here, as time allows.

I should probably see if he has an affiliate program…
