Day 6 of 7 - Expanding My Ideas
Last Update: Dec 16, 2017
So late last night I finally completed the initial training here at Wealthy Affiliate! Great big pat on the back for myself. Good feeling, but I feel I still have so much to learn. Want to look at some Webinar training here as well for some more knowledge.
However, I feel the groundwork is in place and I have a very good understanding of what I want out of my first niche website. I have a ton of ideas ready to go in SiteContent, and now the hard part is choosing what to write first. Think that's a good tough decision to have!
Ideas Are Brewing
My first site is a slow moving one. My traffic is building and eventually I will become more authoritative in my niche as time goes by. Tough part I feel with my niche as well is, even though it's based on budget electronic instruments, most of the gear is $50-$500. Not likely people will come scrambling to spend that much money that quickly. But that is really not my full intention with the site. I am passionate about it and want to help others based on my years of experience. If I make money, great! That is an end goal but I know it will be a slow climb.
So I have been pondering ideas now on a second niche site. Right now, I feel like I am in a good place to juggle two of them. Ideas are just bouncing around right now. Waiting for one to bounce on the wall hard enough so it sticks!
The ideas that I have had in my head right now are cheese, cured meats, preserves, pickling, and hot sauce. All things I love and can write about. I did some research and found that cheese, cured meats and hot sauce have some amazing affiliate programs to join. Feel like I am going to lose some money testing these products out. I am a sucker for foodie stuff!
Normally I would try to want to stick with a specific niche. But can some of these 5 topics go together into one site? I mean cheese, cured meats and preserves would go together. Possibly pickling. Hot sauce is a bit out there. Or should I stick with one for now and have the other 3 or 4 in reserve (still think I can do cheese, cured meats and preserves together)? What is your take on this?
Also, how many of you juggle multiple websites? Or how many of you have different types of niches on one site and try to make it all connect? I am very curious about how you all handle a situation like this.
Can't wait to hear from you all!
All the best!
