    Well I have never had a journey thread here on bhw, but its time to start a new site and this will be a way to keep myself accountable. I am going to use a combination of amazon aff and direct download of a product which I plan on selling though the site. I have never sold anything directly on my previous sites as they are all affiliate based. I have been doing IM since around 2012 and own about 10 sites in different niches. The keyword I will be going after has a score of 38 from kwfinder and gets around 12k searches per month. Feel free to ask questions along the way and i will be as transparent as i can be. I will update this thread AT LEAST once a week. Let's do this!

    What I have done already.

    Purchased a partial match domain name that can be brandable. ( Brand New )

    Setup wordpress and installed the following plugins:
    yoast seo
    wordfence
    w3 total cache
    contact form 7

    and installled a premium theme.


    To do:

    Create websites pages for contact, privacy, blog page and homepage which will be my sales/landing page.

    Purchase SEO packages from the marketplace and begin to rank the site.
    ps. if any mods or marketplace sellers see this journey and wish to have their SEO service reviewed id be happy to do so.

    Going to be buying plr content and also writing most of it myself. I do have a writer that I have been working with for 3 years and if I have a mental block I may ask him to write some, but to begin I will be doing all the writing.

    Update:

    So I have done some research and the plr content i purchased was pretty much crap. I think i will be giving it away on the site rather than having it as a paid download. Which is fine but kinda disappointing bc i bought it. Anyway, I have reached out to some technical writers on upwork and have found one that is going to make some content which I can sell. To get started though I am going to be giving away the download and creating a guide to help visitors with a specific problem. My site offers a solution to a problem.

    What I have done since last update.

    Found a premium theme and began to optimize the site's title ect.

    Found a writer on upwork to work with

    Began to write the guide on how to solve the problem.

    Also, I wanted to give everyone an update on the costs so far. If you are thinking of starting a new site it is important to keep cost in mind.

    COSTS:

    Domain 8.99$ hosting with fatcow on shared hosting for now.

    Upwork Writer: 30$ an hour for technical writing. going to spend a total of 150$

    PLR content: 50$

    Total so far: 230$

    Time for an update.

    So I went to upwork like I mentioned to find someone to do some technical writing for a post im creating for the site. Well I spoke to a few ppl about the article and agreed with one to do the work. Sent funds via paypal outside of upwork (big mistake) DO NOT DO THIS. They got mad at me (upwork) and disabled my account for a day. Got it back and now my guy is mia, I have filed a dispute with paypal to get the funds back i sent and have hired someone inside upwork to finish the article. It should be delivered Friday of this week 12-16-16 once it is complete i will be uploading and then begin to index the site which should take about a week. Then its link building time. Feel free to ask questions. For now i am going with aff products but down the road i make change it to sell my own product through the site but that is a bit down the road.
