    I have a plan on making niche websites/blogs but now I'm wondering about the drive. Is it better to
    1) Have a niche website with content that can be re-written and traffic driven-able

    or

    2) Remove the issue of finding/writing good content, and focus on writing content related to products ( affiliate programs/own products)

    I'm probably going to find a way to combine these two together but I was wondering which is better to start off with as the first project.

    Create a home page/blog with a solid bases for future expansion (authority) or invest time to create a template for multiple mini-stores? ( offline/online)
    I'm reaching an unknown where pulling off an authority website might be too far reach..and not counting the hassles on pre-driving traffic to the site ( no plan yet).

    I'm not too sure what is more valuable to begin with, and any opinions would be much appreciated. Take the leap or go with something that has been proven to work??

    So you're going to remove the issue of having to write content, by writing content?

    Oh, sorry didn't clarify.
    The issue with writing strong content, seems difficult for a novice writer. Especially in thinking of niche's that I am not too familiar with, meaning I would probably have to pay content writers or grab the information from somewhere..
    Rather than force out good content for a blog/article, I could write content in something more familiar. Such as description writing pertaining to a product or review of choice. If that makes sense. Both ways are probably difficult, but I'm curious to which is more manageable in the long run without burning too much time..

    I don't mean to sound like a dick but you are trying to find the easiest way around the core of both site types.

    You don't necessarily have to be familiar with your niche to write great content, the skyscraper technique always works for me and I can churn out some well polished 1000+ word articles in about an hour.

    I say you get your feet wet and really plan out your business model and put some elbow grease into your project by writing and marketing your content.

    Buzzsumo is a good tool for finding content to re-purpose for your needs and shows you how well it responds to social and what not.

    If you're going after keyword content or products it doesn't matter, both SEO in the same way. If you have a niche in fat loss for example, you would find a nice CPA or Affiliate offer and post the banners and links throughout your site. Writing niche related content to bring traffic in from the search engines will create conversions because it's all related to your offer.

    Example:
    Money site - Belly Fat niche topic
    Keywords to target -50
    Product - 30 day abs ($30 per sale)
    Demographic - men and women

    Say you write articles about:
    Top 10 foods causing a bloated stomach
    Exercises you can do for belly fat loss
    How stress is causing you to gain weight

    Conclusion:
    People find your articles through the search engines, they are warmed up to the idea they need to lose weight, they see your banners and product recommendations, you make sales.

    Shitty content will be your primary focus of driving traffic and making sales. Do you really want to cut corners on that because you feel you don't have the technical prowess to come up with something conversationally decent?

    Research your niche, find content to rewrite, make sure to source some images, promote your site, profit.

    The strongest link in the chain of online marketing is your content, either pay for it it or create it. You will save tons of money doing it yourself and you get what you pay for.

    That was very helpful, thanks. Im definently getting a better picture on things.
    It's crazy how you can actually create that many quality articles in a short amount of time. I can only imagine the things you can do with that skill set.

    Would you recommend starting off strong with 1 website and continually build on top of that ( And many more in the future), or start off with multiple blogs to see which one goes off for practice?
