Watch my weekly update here:
Like I said in the video, I don’t have a ton of stuff to update you on this week, since everything’s mostly been proceeding on autopilot for me.
I did decide to outsource the content creation for my site, since I’ve been a bit pressed for time lately with everything that’s been going on here and with my other niche sites. Fortunately, I work with a fantastic writer who does a lot of my niche content creation and I think she did a great job with the content you’ll be seeing on this site.
So far, I have six articles posted and four more loaded into WordPress, ready to be auto-populated over the next two weeks. Right now, I’m adding general content to form an informative base, since I’m planning to grow this site much larger over time. I want visitors within the niche to feel like my site is a reputable information resource, so I’m putting some time into adding basic content that isn’t overtly monetized (ie – things like product reviews, articles that tell readers to take some specific action).
Considering how I’m approaching content right now, it makes sense that there isn’t a ton of monetization on the site. I haven’t added much besides the Amazon Affiliates search box in the sidebar. I have a lot of ideas on how to monetize my content down the road, but as I said earlier, I also think it’s important to have that solid base of non-monetized, general content for visitors within the niche.
Finally, I have made a few changes to the site – the color of the top page navigation bar and the logo. I like them so far, but I don’t think I’m done with the design updates yet. Stay tuned for next week!
