On The GenerationXit Podcast today is James Clark, a 47 year old Australian infopreneur who owns a number of niche websites which he generates income from.
Over the years he has developed two niche websites: a travel and location independent lifestyle site called nomadicnotes.com, and livinginasia.co, a website about infrastructure and new construction developments in SE Asia. Both generate a comfortable income for him through paid affiliate links and display advertising.
James’ business model revolves around him writing about niche subjects that he is interested in and where there is a current lack of information available. Having been based in Vietnam for a number of years, James has a wealth of knowledge about new infrastructure and urban design projects in and around SE Asia, and so his latest blog (livinginasia.co) focuses solely on that. The blog enables James to offer display advertising to new housing and serviced apartment developers throughout the region, some of whom are specifically targeting the digital nomad community.
In the interview we talk about:
- How and why James started travelling back in the early 2000s.
- How nomadicnotes.com and livinginasia.co started.
- Whether James feels that affiliate marketing and display advertising through niche blogging is still as lucrative and easy as it was in the past.
- James’ insider knowledge about new areas of development in SE Asia – including what places might make the next ‘nomad capital’.
- How his approach to travelling has changed over the years, as a result of his business approach and his need for a more established base.
- James’ tips for other entrepreneurs who are thinking about setting up a nomadic business.
