I'd be very surprised if I were the only Warrior to have fallen on his (or her) face after their first launch. Its not game over though. I plan to move to a new niche, salvage my content by finding other uses for it (PLR is one possibility, there are others), and begin again with a paid host & domain, free word press theme, and freshly written content as I launch.
One of the benefits in starting again that I've thought of is that I not only don't have to re-invent the wheel (the knowledge I gained from my first launch hasn't gone anywhere), or research and consider the 101 things I didn't know when I first launched. Instead I can drill it down to focusing my efforts on only a few narrow topics, and these are things I'm hoping for any suggestions/feedback on:
1. Domain & Hosting combo. I know its preferable to separate these, but to keep it economical I prefer to combine them from one service. I'm interested in the best bargains and those hosting services who accept PayPal and provide good bang for minimal bucks. Host Gator has been recommended.
2. Keyword research for niche selection. I know the basics, but any tips are still welcome.
3. Free Wordpress themes. Any recommendations here are welcome too.
Those are my big 3. I can work through anything else that comes up after I launch. So long as I've nailed those three categories down first, the rest I can sort out and perfect as I go.
That's the spiel. Tips, suggestions, advice on these areas would be very much appreciated.
