Yes... I am selling my 1,000$ pair of shoes and all revenue will go to my new website as described in this thread:
The question is, how would you budget it? I know little about SEO.
Should I focus my budget on:
  • Buying a domain with authority
  • good plugins
  • good wordpress designs
  • backlinks?
  • good content writer
Or other things?? I haven't bought the domain yet either.

Or.. should I just buy a different pair of 1,000$ shoes?? :alien:

Don't say you'll spend all your money on it, that just sets you up for being broke again once you spend it all, and believe me, you can spend infinite amounts of money on a site, and especially at startup, before it ever makes money. So you should sell the trainers and buy 3 domains and shared hosting, spend time writing the content yourself till each of them is getting a trickle of traffic.

Monitise, and then invest some of your money into backlinks from the marketplace, (knowing that you know have a possibility of making money now) and continue to drive traffic via social media, and other free methods, until you start getting conversations, then you can afford to invest some of that spare trainer money a bit further ahead in time, to cover you and for articles to keep beefing up the sites, now that hopefully, you don't have to do much writing anymore, thanks to the earnings starting to increase.

Right. Sometimes we do have money or assets to spend on our project but we should stay bootstrapped and work hard to make that money and then invest.

Well selling the shoes is not a bad idea, but if you are a shoe lover like me, you should consider keeping a few, and keep looking good, your physical appearance still matters

For our project

First if you dont have a good budget to buy a domain with high DA, I will advice you do a proper research on domain name availability and register a fresh domain, possible a dot com, which will be less than $11, the use a good host

As for designing of the site
Just make sure is running on SSL (HTTPS) Which is mostly free with lot of hosting package this days

Then for plugins, you dont need much plugin, Possible a free SEO Plugin, such as RankMath, Just some few plugins will do, then just install a good theme, possible use free theme 2022 or 2021 WordPress theme is cool for start or best google best free theme and pick a design and interface you do love to work with, if you still have a budget, you can go for any light premium theme of your choice

Then make sure you optimize your core site for Search Engine, You have your site map verified and google webmaster and analytic all verified for your site

Net is you working on good contents, and best smart distributions of your contents, leverage social media, get backlinks from forum platform, directory, Classified portal, then search for free backlinks thread on BHW AND GET BACKLINKS FROM THEM ALL FOR FREE, Keep doing these until you site start earning, then start putting more money on paid ads and paid tools

Best of luck

This may take time to involved, be patient, when is needed

Okay, 3 domains. I will combine it with social media and postings for each article so there is a correlation to some type of brand.

Thank you for the help.

Yes I totally agree. I do have a minimum wage job right now so my basic needs are covered for now.

Haha! I am.. I have a few other really nice shoes to keep me looking fresh, I won't lose all my drip ;)

Okay, this is good to know. So fresh domain is still feasable. I will probably do the shared hosting option as above. Is there any downsides to that in regards to, if others on the shared host have bad SEO will it f*** mine up?

Yes social media is something I will definitely try to leverage. Should I not worry about the free backlinks? What if they are bad?
Best of luck
