Hello BHW Members, I have been meaning to start this journey thread for a while mainly to learn and motivate myself. A little about my background, I do have a full time job and do IM as a hobby for around 4 years, hoping to become full time. During this time I have made around $10k through various business models. So why an authority site?. After my EMD websites got canned due to the Google update, I have read a lot of threads that the only way to make a website sustainable and to make a good amount of income is through an authority site?and here we are. Strategy My chosen niche will be the attraction/dating for men. The site will portray that the owner is good with women and can help men attract women (like Hitch). My plan is to share the website link with you once it?s off the ground and I have uploaded my first phase of content. Content ? my first step will be to brainstorm around 100 topics within my niche to develop content around. Once I have uploaded around 50/60 pages, I will start to think of more content. To get started my main sections of my site are as follows: Online Dating Attraction Building Comfort Dating Products (Clickbank reviews) Ask Mike (alias) Blog All content will be outsourced to article writers on BHW. I will drip-feed the content onto my site so it looks like that I am adding content regularly on the site. SEO ? On page SEO will be covered by me manually when uploading each page. However, for the off page SEO strategy, I will need some help as I am weak in this area. I want to outsource this for each page but not sure who to go to (could do with some ideas when I get to that stage). Monetization ? My plan here is to start with affiliate products from Clickbank and Online dating sites. When the site drives more traffic I will include my products (eBooks) and consulting services (email/skype chat). What will be deemed as success? I know that authority sites take time to build and maybe I shouldn't be really calling it an authority site but I can that goal. Success to me is either $500 a day revenue or 1,000 unique visitors a day (for three days consistent). I don?t know if these goals are realistic but that is what I will go with. What will I be tracking on this Journey? Revenue Costs Profit Unique Visitors Pages Created How often will I update the thread? When there is an update. I won?t be working on this project everyday due to other commitments but I hope to engage with fellow members on advice and learning?s. So please join me on my journey! My first step will be brainstorming 100 topics within the categories mentioned above so I can start outsourcing the content. Revenue: $0 Costs: $61 (Domain/Email/WP Theme) Profit: -$61 Unique Visitors: 0 Pages Created: 0 Thanks, Zoheb01.
