Question about starting a website or blog....

11 replies
So I have been gone for a long time but I'm back and ready to start again! I wanted to see your thoughts on the niche blogs that are already made for sale on here? Is it worth going that route to begin with?

I had planned on combining a website, where I create and sell digital kid invitations but also have a blog on there about kid parties. Now, there are a lot of sites like that and Etsy has a lot of people selling them but I figured they don't have my designs. I wouldn't be repeating what people keep seeing, it would be new. I guess it would be hard to compete with sites like Shutterfly but they are not about digital invites and that is what I only want to offer. I would have a custom option too.

Right now, I just feel like I have a lot of things I want to start but don't know which route to any help would be appreciated!

    Before you jump to anything in really plan out how you are going to build a site, drive traffic, and monetize it. Research everything BEFORE you start building & buying stuff.

    If you fail to plan then plan to fail

    Never buy content blogs.. avoid that stuff. If it was such a good deal and made so much money they would never sell them to start with. Getting rich is an art.. not something prepackaged. Don't get me wrong.. I have bought into things before and I know a few that made me big money.. but I have an eye for the real vs the fake. So my advice.. NEVER buy anything.. learn the ropes yourself from the ground up.

    Seems like you need a mentor or partner to reach your goals. Starting kid party blog is best way to start, if the blog is done and the next will be easy.

    A blog attracts more visitors because you keep updating it with content. Start with a Wordpress blog. Perhaps the website won't be necessary.

    Read many posts in this forum. Everything keeps changing online. Now getting free traffic is more than hard...

    Great to have a lot of ideas... put it all on paper, and segment those ideas: 1) Take action on NOW, 2) Take action on later, 3) Projects I might start in the future.

    Now, create a plan on the one you want to start NOW... which as you said, is the kid invitations.

    I would create a simple, web 2.0 looking site, get up a simple catalog type style page with all your designs... and a 1-pager for your highest priced products... then go on FB and dial in your audience, create a FP, and drive some traffic to a lander or squeeze page to collect email leads.

    Need help with dialing in who your audience is? If you've got the new FB Audience Insights, then use that... it'll give you some awesome data on who your audience is, what they do, what they like, where they shop, their gender, ages, etc.

    Have a clear business plan and go ahead. Be creative and make your blog and offers stand out. If you have a unique way of presenting things than others in business, there is no chance for you to fail. Go Ahead with clear business plan even before starting.

    You should create this website through WP. It gives you benefit for creating a website and a blog together. Create all pages static like a website page. Create a blog page where everyone can give their suggestion and also able to comment and discuss with each other.

    I agree with the other Warriors here that you really want to plan ahead first so that you will be taking the right action. There are indeed some genuine blog that will make good money but the reality is that there are many other fakes blogs that only look good in appearance but it does not make any money at all.

    The important thing to do now is to stay FOCUS on one platform and one project at a time. I have make the mistake before by doing too many projects which make me feel burn out. Keep focus on one project and just do it

    Dear Friend

    There are lots of oppurtunities in teh IM world to make money.

    You may know most of them but the fact is that if you do all at teh same time tehn you will end up achieving nothing.

    My advice is start with that task which is the most profitable or you are most comfortable with.

    So now do not think anything else and just start blogging and that makes you good money.
