I was told there'd be appetizers! Where the hell are they? (Intro)

    Greetings, all -- new guy on the block here to learn and grow.

    Me: Long-time marketing/PR guy -- been doing that about 25 years and currently make my living consulting for corporations and governments. (I'm on my own, not a W-2 employee.)

    What I want to do: Like everyone here, I want to make money. My idea for a niche/authority site is off the beaten track from what I usually see here, has thousands of pages of ready-to-run, Grade-A content yet it has high search volumes and per-click values on some keywords topping $60-70.

    My goal is to build out a site as proof of concept and then perhaps duplicate it regionally at the state level since most of the highest-value keywords are centered on geography-centric searches.

    What I'm here to learn: I'm very strong on Wordpress, design and writing. I need to learn strategies for building authority and moving monetization beyond ad revenue.

    As a guy who consults, I'm usually a "buy it don't build it" kind of guy... so I'm (frankly) hoping to meet people I can pay for knowledge and solutions.

    Looking forward to talking to all of (well some of) you!

    The appetizers are a lie.
