Do you need a team of other bloggers to build an authority blog?

8 replies
That's my question. Or should I wing it all by myself. I'm in the Pro Football Niche. The blog is more of an opinionated site.

    Start with your own stuff then reach out to established authorities in your niche. Social media is a great place to start for targeted outreach.

      I have created tons of content on my own however I have just noticed that a lot of sport related blogs generate tons of revenue is by have multiple writers posting content to the site.

    Not an expert, but I see a lot of people winging the content creation by themselves but hiring assistants for website design, editing the posts, SEO, ...

    I'd like to build an authority blog too I'm mostly trying to figure out if an authority blog is possible without massive content creation (i.e. Can high quality compensate for having less content than your competitor?), because that will be difficult to do on your own if you have limited time.

    There are plenty of successful blogs that are created by a single person. Even the huge ones started out with just a single person. Mashable is probably one of the best examples of a blog that started out being written by one guy and developed into a huge multi-million company. So to answer your question, no you do not need a team of writers to create an authority site. I read plenty of blogs that are updated once or twice a week.

    It would help having a team considering a sports blog churns out a ton of content, so having multiple writers would help.

    if you can't write it yourself you probably cant roll with it initially at least

    My method is to do it myself until it's generating profits and systems arise. Then I start outsourcing recurring tasks. In my biggest niche I outsource about 60 percent of content creation. I like the niche a lot so I write what I want and outsource stuff I don't want to do.

    In my local niche I outsource most of it by hiring graduate students studying for the industry.
