My first Amazon site is up and running. Fortunately/unfortunately, I have just about all the time in the world to work on this right now. I picked a kw/topic that is popular and I'm familiar with. I have enough to figure out with this that is admittedly overwhelming, so familiarity with popular products provides some level of comfort for me. So, my basic Amazon friendly WP site with appropriate theme is up. I'm adding my preferred plugins and I need to make a graphic header, since the text based generic one looks...generic. Right now my posts are all items/links. I'm researching where to purchase good quality articles and looking for supplemental videos and other content in order to have good quality content overall, not just item descriptions. I'm not a great writer and I want this site going and making money as soon as possible, so I'd rather outsource articles than write them myself. I plan to make many more sites, but to start with I want to get this one as good as I possibly can, and use it as a model for the sites to come in the future. Much of my time now is also spent on research. I realize I have a lot to learn so I've just been throwing myself into it completely the past few days. I've wanted to get started with this for about a year and I got sick of waiting for the various reasons why I kept putting it off...while other work is very slow for me, now is the time. I'm very determined for this to work.
