David FavorFractional CTO

Started my first business in 1974, been going strong since. My business portfolio is varied. Recent focus has been setting up 10,000+ reqs/sec WordPress sites. Most hosting companies can barely make 10 reqs/sec. Anyone expert who tells you "WordPress is slow"... Do a 180 + run, as likely their incompetence is pervasive. For example, SERP Shaker WordPress sites I've been setting up recently clock in at 7,000+ reqs/sec. In November + December 2014, one of my clients ran sustained traffic, all day, every day of 100,000+ unique visitors/second on a $100/month dedicated server machine at a load of 5%-10% of capacity. If you site is slow remember, site speed depends primarily on the tuning of the server machine where your site is running.

Fiverr. Guru. Any microwork site.

And... If your site is a money site (paying your bills), stick with WordPress.

Custom code is far more expensive to design + maintain + always far more hackable.

Also WordPress sites run much faster than custom code sites, because with WordPress caching is already thought out + implemented well.

With WordPress, sites can easily be built to maintain a 1,000,000+ requests/second on cheap hardware.

Attaining this performance level is possible + generally costs a large amount of budget to implement + keep working.

You'll use WordPress if cost + performance are a consideration.

You'll use custom code if you're independently wealthy, with unlimited time/budget... also patience... as custom code will leave you balled up in a fetal position, sobbing yourself to sleep many nights.

One good starting point is the book "Fiverr Master Class" + all of Bob Lotich's books are highly useful.

All these books are short to read + can have a person generating cashflow in a few days.

Look for Amazon books with "Side Hustle" or "Work at Home" in the titles.

Amazon sells numerous encyclopedia style books, some with 100s to 1000s of ideas listed.

No need for a "Pro".

Just call the IRS + ask for an EIN to be assigned.

If your business entity qualifies for an EIN, the IRS will assign you one.

If you do hire a Pro, the cost for their service should be $0, or billing for the number of minutes they're on the phone with the IRS to freely assign an EIN.

How to monetize + how to partner are 2x different activities.

All very simple. Just takes time + work.

Any unnatural linking will always be noticed at some point + penalized.

Better to have a site which is so valuable people naturally link to the site.

Then market that site.
