    What is the expenses for starting and running an authority site? So far I plan to purchase a premium theme package and a keyword research tool is there anything else that I should purchase or sign up for? I want to make my website the best I can possibly make it, so no expense will be spared.

    why not try and build with free themes and keyword planner? Then you can upgrade things later. Authority sites don't mean a tonne of expense. It means a site where a user enjoys staying and that does not come from money. Content matters the most with any authority site.

    The domain and hosting. The content it self is the most important and probably is the biggest money sink. Unless you plan to write it yourself but as it is an authority site you probably will want to buy content to make things go faster. Besides that you don't need anything else unless you want someone to do the seo part.

    First, this is posted in the wrong place, a Mod might move it for you.

    Second, how long is a piece of string ?
    Looking just at content -
    You could be paying $6 per 1,000 words for content or $60 per 1,000 words - depending on who you hire.
    Do you want 20k words , 200k words ?

    You are best breaking down exactly what you want / need then looking a the costs involved.
    Do you use free images or bought ones ?

    How much are you able to do yourself ? Can you design logos etc or need to outsource ?

    You say no expense will be spared so does that mean you have a $10k budget or a $20k budget ?

    You might be as well posting in hire a freelancer on here with your requirements and see what prices come through.

    I should have been more specific. I'm writing all the content my self because I've seen websites with relatively thin content (in terms of the actual writing) it just sounds so promotive in my opinion, nevertheless they still manage to rank on the first page. So in terms of outsourcing the writing I will be doing my self, any ideas on where I could get the best logo designed and all other products and services associated with starting and running an authority site?
