All Energy Into One Website Or Multiple Sites?

7 replies
I am a person of many passions. I love all types of different things and am passionate about a lot of stuff. I want to get more into building sites to hopefully gain profit at some point. Is it better to focus all my energy into one website or multiple?

For instance I love writing, hockey, food, buying at flea markets & writing reviews. Would it be best to recommend a blog where I just write whatever I feel like writing about and putting it on one site or create smaller sites around each niche?

Thanks in advance!

    I would do multiple sites. Original setup might take a little more to set up, but once they are up and running, the time spent writing will be the same

    That is a good point. I have a decent amount of wordpress knowledge and can throw a basic site up in 5-7 hours and writing is the same no matter what. If doing multiple sites, do you recommend a separate email and email program for each or just do everything under one account essentially?

    Start with just one. Set things up, promote it like crazy. Build a list in the niche. Build your audience and take good care of them.

    Only after your selling system is in place and you are making good money from your site should you expand into other markets.

    I'm sure this isn't what you want to hear, but it's the smart way to proceed. You will find that setting up your first site and selling system is much more work and effort than you thought.

    The best to you,

    IMO start with one and once it's setup and going well then start another. Once the second is going well then start another, etc, etc.

    If you start too many at once you'll likely loose focus on at least one of them.

    Just don't depend on one site.. it it goes down or something happens - you have to have some "backup" sites as well.

    I usually have 2 going at one time. Never put all your eggs in one basket. Plus, age with Google is still a little relevant so good to register that domain and put some age on it, imo

    Less is more in the business world as it is in day to day life. I'd go even further than having one website, I'd target just one specific audience with your one website.
