I've just set up a niche blog in the fitness niche, focused on leading a healthy lifestyle for people with serious time constraints i.e new parents/people who work long hours, it also has a squeeze page w/ an opt-in box. By the end of the day the blog should be connected to it's own facebook & twitter pages. An RSS Feed has been set up as well.
here's a link to my blog:
Now, my "job" for the next couple of weeks will be to produce as much high value content on the blog as possible. Along with this I plan on driving traffic to the blog via Yahoo Answers, Blog commenting, befriending people in similar niches on facebook/twitter, maybe try for a guest post (possibly not established enough yet)
My biggest 'hinderance' is a lack of tech skills. My blog is set up with Wordpress & Bluehost.
I plan on monetizing the blog mainly through affiliate marketing but also through some small banner ads.
I've just recently paid someone to set up the blog/squeeze page for me using Wordpress, so that is done and dusted.
Now, my situation:
- I have roughly $250 that I can comfortably put aside to speed up the process. I've been thinking of outsourcing some of the work to the Philippines, is this a good idea? I was thinking of hiring someone to optimize the blog for mobile devices, and spend the rest on link building/traffic generation?
My aim is to be earning $135 pw within 3 weeks, is this achievable with what I've said?
Thanks dearly for any replies!
