    Focus on giving first...before getting. Publish your content...make sure it's top quality. Build your list and your readership while you're publishing content. Then after you're well established... start testing different options for monetizing. Choosing a good related affiliate product can be a good testing ground while you start to create your own products if you want to expand further.

    .ideally you should not have wasted that much of time, but as they say it's better late than never, just assume you are 5 months late, and you need to catch up, now start taking massive action, because if you don't, it will be pretty late,.....
    Happy holidays.

      Spend a little time online and research the niche you plan to focus on. See who are the biggest "players" (competition) and where the authority sites are so you have an idea of what the niche is currently like.

      Most importantly, visit the forums in the niche and keep close tabs on what products and services are being offered. Ideally, you're looking to find unmet needs in the niche or problems that people are having that you might solve with a paid product or service.

      There is some "demand" in every niche and that is what you should focus your efforts on if you want to begin selling. Don't rely on the fact that you can create demand for your product . . . instead, go where there is already demand and you will have a ready audience for your business.

      The best to you,

      Steve

          Thinking about what? Waiting for what?

          Going to kick you back a notch now.

          Knowing exactly how you are going to monetize a site is something that should have been decided before even making the site. Do you have a list ready of what you are going to promote? All signed up for what ever programs? Will you be building a list? Why are your articles not on the site already? Is it going to be another months and months of thinking and waiting before you get that content on there and figure out how you are going to monetize and drive traffic?

          Stop wasting time!

          Fail, and fail fast!

          The sooner you realize what doesn't work, the quicker you determine what does.

          If you spent those months and months just "thinking" and not really researching, you need to stop right now before you take one more step.

          You don't know any of us here and we have no idea what your site is all about.

          No clue how to tell you to proceed - only to just go do something more now!

            Hi!

            Congratulations on taking action! It really is a big milestone.

            Here Are Some Essential things you must understand

            1. Any real business is a long term plan.

            -Stay away from any too good to be true "get rich quick schemes" out there.

            -Focus on one project, stick with it and learn something new everyday!


            2. Be Yourself, and Give out Massive Value.

            -People Buy From People.

            -If the people reading your stuff are getting great value form it, then they will begin to know, like, and trust you. Meaning that you will build up a following up people who want your content and trust you enough to give you money!

            3. Stay Focus and Stay Positive.

            Do not make the mistake of jumping from thing to thing.

            Of course, learn as much as you can but focus on implementing all the things you learn into the one and only project you have going on.

            4. You need to find the right information!

            -I highly recommend looking up authoritative internet marketing blogs and signing up to thier email list.

            -You can get great value form these, as you will have to develop your skills as a marketer.

            Hope That Helped!

    So you just and only want to use SEO for your branding and business? Over time sure you can begin to get traffic but it can also get swiped right out under your feet and taken away as well.

    For me Internet marketing is all about making money! Making money online just comes down to getting traffic and converting that traffic into leads and buyers. Also when I want traffic and to test something I want to be in full control and get traffic now if I want it.

    The part that alot don't speak about is optimizing for the conversions. Building your ad campaigns is not just like flipping on a switch. Not all will perform right away especially if your brand new.

    Internet marketing starts and ends with keywords research and analyze. So, before you can do anything, you need to do some research and learn about your niche and your audience. My best advice for you is know the phrases you should target well.

    Don't spend so much time thinking and get to work! I noticed that when I started taking massive action I started getting results.

    Internet marketing is a term used to mean many different types of marketing online. Niche marketing, affiliate marketing, marketing physical products, digital products.

    The ways in which you can make money are many... selling, contextual advertising (i.e. adsense), Amazon or Ebay, blogging, setting up mini sites and the list goes on.

    You bought a domain. Why? In what market? How do you plan to monetize it? How do you plan to market it? Did you research your market and keywords? Are you planning to use SEO? If so, are your keywords ones you can rank for? If you are going to run paid advertising campaigns, is your market on Facebook, Youtube, elsewhere?

    Setting out an online business is not unlike doing so for an offline business. You should start with a solid business plan. This helps to keep you on track and doing the most important things each day. It will also help prevent shiny object syndrome and going in a hundred directions which really means you are not going at all.

    Try to formulate the answers to the questions above and ask your question again with more information. When we can better understand what exactly you are trying to accomplish and what your target is, then we will be able to better answer what steps you need to take.

    Happy Holidays and Good Luck.

    Don't do what all others do and stick to what you begin with. over time you will succeed.
    Failures happen because of 2 things.

    1: 98% do the same thing (Affiliate Marketing, Solo Ads, SEO, CPA and all that crap)
    2: Once they figure out they just make a few bucks (If at all!) they give up.

    Do something unique, merge techniques together and go for it.

        That's a market not a niche.

        A niche would be "wart cures" or "organic shampoo", etc.

        The more narrow you can make your focus the better.

    Wow!!! finally you have taken a good decision. Welcome to the IM section. I have been working in the field for a long time. Anyway, You should start writing. After publishing some article, you need to do some SEO (both On page & Off page). You need to choose the Do-follow link more & more than the No-follow link. You should use the Social Media Site, Forum posting, relevant blog commenting & so on. After increasing your site traffic, you will be able to earn. Thanks a lot.

    You got started finally. Good for you. Now just staying in the game longer than it took you to get started is a first step.

    Thinking and waiting is one thing but nothing happens until you start to move.

    Then when you start moving, things don't always happen as you would like. At that point most people usually give up but this is where you will need to keep moving (forward).

    The only way to learn IM is by DOING.

        You didn't read the part where I said EVALUATE what you're doing.

        Of course, if you keep doing the same thing and you fail to get results, you need to CHANGE THINGS UP A BIT and find something that works.

        Regardless, you need to stay on it until you succeed.

        Quitting and giving up = failure.

        Persistence and constant experimentation to level up your game = the path to success.

        The only person that will defeat you ... is YOURSELF.

        What exactly are you... Just Saying'?

        I agree with writeaway. Starting and growing a business is hard work and takes courage and unrelenting determination.

        As children we are told "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again". But as adults if we try once we are often too ashamed to try again. Many of our peers and family laugh at us for being "foolish" enough to try in the first place. For this reason and others most don't try again, and if they do... they don't let anyone know they are.

        This is the very reason that would be success stories turn into to Jaded stories of failure.

        Of course another of the big problems with many wanting an online business is that many never actually get started. Many say they quit because they couldn't make it. But the reality is that many of them never started. You can't quit what you didn't start.

        Buying training products and going through 10% - 20% of it and then getting another and then another and after wasting years of your life and $1000's of dollars while never actually putting your heart and soul into building a real business online... is never starting... not quitting.

        While there are the occasional lottery winners, most of us gain financial success with hard work, determination and intelligence. Quitting is not in the vocabulary of winners.

        Success is most often built upon the rocks of failure.

        Quitting, or giving up on your dreams is Never the right choice. There is always hope and those with the strength to persevere often win.

        At the same time Babe Ruth held the record for the most home runs in a season, he also held the record for the most strike outs in a season.

        President Jefferson was a failed business man, failed to win a seat in Congress and had a nervous break down in his early 50's, yet the only thing people remember is that he is one of the most beloved of American President's.

    Hello,
    What platform are you using,
    WordPress is the best for starting out, my advice is, learn how WordPress works and all the tools that go along with it, ask us questions if you need to, then think about monetizing later, your blog must be built right, for it to work, this takes time, don't rush it.

    Ok build something super nice,
