How to pick a niche


The Plan

  • 90 minute session at the start of the week to brainstorm and plan your content.

Where to get content ideas

  • Keyword Tools
  • Ask your readers
  • Google Insights
  • Visit forums / QnA Sites
  • Read info products
  • Type your keyword into an article directory like ezinearticles
  • Re-touch up popular articles on your site

Selecting a niche

  • Goto affiliate market place and see what products exist in your niche.

How to get your site up in 5 minutes

  • Get a domain name with your keyword in it
  • Go hostgator, buy cheapest hosting (upgrade later)
  • Install WordPress, email hostgator if you don’t know how.
  • Install a simple clean theme. You can re-design it later when you have traffic. Ignore magazine themes etc as you won’t have enough content to fill out the categories. The WP default theme is fine.
  • Add plugins as you need or Google for top 10 plugins.
    The basic plugins you want to have are:

    • Contact form plugin
    • W3 total cache plugin for better performance
    • Akismet plugin to block spam
