I started a blog a couple of months ago but due to lots of school work on the side, I had to take a little break. To make sure I keep to it as best as I can I decided to start a journey which I have to update at least once a week. If you see me slacking, call me out on it! What's the project? It's an affiliate blog where I try to give advice on how to use different IM tools. Starting budget? I have currently put $500 to the side for this project. After that I will invest around $200-$300 per month to make it grow. Expenses? Domain: $9,99 per year Hosting: $5,95 per month Mailoptin: $15,- per month Jarvee: $ 29.95 per month Theme: $29 one time cost The project itself I bought the domain on August 8, 2019. I started posting on the 3rd of February. Threw my link in some Facebook Groups and on Quora and got a little bit of Traffic from it. Did that from time to time and as you can see it worked out a little bit. For now: The first step is to rank for low hanging keywords and build my way to more difficult keywords as time goes on. From work, I already have SEO Powersuite which will help me find keywords, blogs within my niche for backlinks, etc. I don't want to write the articles myself so I will be using someone from BHW to write articles for my website and the outreach posts. Alongside I will pay someone to write a PDF which I will use to capture emails on the website with the email optin. After that is done I will be split testing Facebook/Instagram, Quora, Reddit, Linkedin ads to see which one brings in the best leads. Last but not least I will create/buy a couple of accounts to ask/answers questions on Quora and upvote it with the other accounts. If you have any questions I will be more than happy to answer them.
