Big thanks to BTB for his thread on Build and Bank. Like many others, it comes at a great time for me and has actually inspired me to write up my own journey. I understand the power of well-executed niche sites, but my plan is to build out an authority site that focuses on three broad (and perennial) topics, with many micro-niche sub-categories. I have a question regarding the viability of building a large site like I describe. You see, I have a very large database of niche emails, almost 200 hundred different niches, each with several thousand addresses. My plan is to build the site structure first, then begin adding well-written articles and sending out an email to all the niche lists that might be interested. I've found that those types of emails get a very high open rate, and high CTR as well. My question is, does a large and responsive list make building out a huge site more feasible because I can drive my own targeted traffic to it? It seems like a game-changer, and I'd love BHW opinions on it.
