need advice on how to proceed.

hi,
so.... i know about seo and getting traffic to a website and on and on and on....

my question is how should i go about this:
1. I found a great keyword with no competition.
2. It involves music artists....

The keyword volume is alot of traffic, but being one person trying to build a huge website when should I start promoting the site ?
Should I put up a notice mentioning I am the only person working on the site and to be patient as I add new artists ?

adding thousands of artists will take quite a bit of time for one person.

    Well that depends. You know there are tools and plugins that can pull in information and do the posting for you.

    Do some testing. Don't overdo it with tons of ads. Compare this with the amount of traffic and bounce rate. That should give you a ballpark figure.

      I am totally agreeing with you. Elance is a fantastic tool - one of my favourites. And while a few marketers out there may not be fans, due to the sometimes low quality of the contractors. In fact there are plenty of world class writers out there. You just need to know where to look.

    As mentioned by another Warrior you can automate the posting. A notice is not required because in any case you can't stop people from jumping into that same niche right?

    You might want to see how a small sample will work before you get carried away. Just because there is traffic and no competition doesn't mean there is money to be made. Small tests are recommended.

      If I understand this response correctly, I totally disagree.

      If you can manage to get the traffic to your website, I can confidently say that there is defiantly money to be made. I'm not saying that they will be interested in your particular product but everyone is interested in something. All traffic can be sold to or be convinced to do something that makes you profit. Your job is to find what works best with this traffic.

      Wishing you much success,

    Even though the keyword has a lot of search volume, it does not mean your new site will be swamped with visitors-all great ideas Fiverr, elance Odesk for admin assistant help-offer a free high value 'gift' to keep people happy and perhaps start a list. The curated content idea is also excellent-but careful about copyright I would just make a start and get the content going-then open up
    Good luck!

    So what you can do is make a fan page and blog, then promote your blog with the fanpage, also you can use Twitter and Instagram to build up your base to comfortable traffic

    I think you should start promoting your site as soon as possible my friend. There is no reason to prolong the growth of your site. As far as adding new artists is concerned. I would recommend you as a family member or family members for assistance or you can just go to craigslist > sites and post what you need to post.

    Highly suggest finding freelancers to outsource. This can take some time to get you top rankings based on the info you've provided.

    Go into the site with a clear plan. Test with out with few and once you are confident about the traffic and income, invest for a VA or hire someone in freelancer or anywhere else.
