I have the website done from a couple previous Sundays. Waiting on a logo from our designer but that is no reason to hold me back.
What I found most amusing and kind of frustrating so far is that while I have been setting up Wordpress sites since 2008, following someone else's directions really slowed me down. What would have taken me say 2 hours "freestyle" ended up being 6 as I had to figure out what was specific to the theme Tom recommended versus what I was used to--or what the theme I had can actually do.
I had a decent domain lying around (what a shocker) and a premium theme that's suitable. However, I discovered this theme cannot do custom footers with embedded widgets. It can only handle one widget, and that was after some fiddling. That made the navigation Tom suggested impossible. But I don't think it's a big deal...I just reproduced it up top instead.
I've picked a niche and have my eye on relevant offers from the two networks.
So far I've done a little keyword research and found a cool tool that displays terms in a visual way: https://answerthepublic.com/
None yet, but skipped ahead in the WSO book to find out if it was a FB group or a page that Tom recommended (it was a page).
Time in so far has been about 8 hours: 2 X 3 hour website sessions plus a couple hours reading the WSO book, going through my stuff to see what I had like the premium theme, and looking at tools. I would have probably budgeted 3-4 prior to doing this, and my estimates are usually on target. Having to slow down, interpret and follow directions made things take a lot longer--but of course I want to do them correctly.
