An Adsense and affiliate site created in April 2013 in the education niche. The site features articles, information and a directory on obtaining further education in a particular industry. The site is fairly passive and only requires around 1 hour per week to maintain current earnings.
Focusing on guest post outreach and other forms of clean whitehat linking building are a big opportunity - the site ranks well for many keywords, but there are also plenty of keywords to improve
Optimizing and improving the e-mail list. The site collects around 300 new opt-ins per month, but there is just have a single follow up series promoting an affiliate offer which doesn't perform great. The list is currently at 3,350.
Expanding articles to rank for non-competitive keywords in the niche.
There's potential to attract direct advertisers that are interested in reaching the demographic and visitors.

The VA currently takes care of it all at $7/hour, which is factored into costs on the P&L. The cost of content for guest posts is also factored in (300 words per post at $3/100 words - about 2 posts per month).
