Day 21 - Learn How to Build a Website Yourself in WordPress 2017
Hey there and a Big Welcome to Day 21 of Learn How to Build a Website Yourself in WordPress 2017 – let’s keep moving on!
In order to see any of the previous day’s posts – check out My Posts blog roll on the bottom right hand side.
Here’s a quick recap on what I did yesterday – Day 20:
· Gave a quick outline of the keywords of Website 2 – my new project
I’m still as excited as ever, but now it’s time to calm down and really get this new project on a roll.
Because I really enjoy Jay’s training’s I thought I would search to see if he had created a training on Authority Sites AND he has, which is fantastic.
Well of course he has, THIS IS JAY we’re talking about! So here it is:
Jay outlines that there are 9 phases to the process of web development and I’ll be going through those phases step by step with Jay’s guidance.
If ever I wanted to create a website the right way, this is the time!
Phase 1: Define the Scope of the Project
Apparently there’s two different types of Authority Sites – I actually didn’t know this so I’ve learned my ‘learn something new everyday’ thing for the day!
1. Absolute Authority Site – sites like Huffington Post etc
2. Relative Authority Site
My site fits within the Relative Authority Site which Jay says is more geared towards internet businesses and are run by webmasters and bloggers that are authorities in a niche – that sounds like a bit of me for sure!
Next I have to determine what my website will do and who it’s for, thinking about the 5 W’s. Those 5 W’s are Who, What, When, Where and Why.
An Expansion of the 5 W’s
· Who the site is for
· What the site is about
· When will the site be accessed
· Where the content will come from
· Why do they want to visit your site
Who my site is for:
This is what makes this project so exciting, and at the same time, so mind boggling for me as my target audience is varied, it covers all ages from age 5 to senior citizens.
It also covers both genders (and beyond if you get my drift) so this is pretty open as well.
I’m really going to have to plan out the sub niches here which will help me to categorize the product range which is also huge and varied.
What my site is about!
As said above the product range is huge and varied so I will be targeting different products to different ages, AND to different audiences.
Where will the content come from?
For this site, at the beginning, I will be writing the content myself. I will be targeting long tailed keywords in my posts for the first couple of months to get initial Google visitors and then I will look at other avenues.
When will the site be accessed?
I’m assuming the site will be constantly accessed as the product range is world-wide and in high demand
Why do they want to visit your site?
Now that I’m really seeing the huge scope of the product range AND the audience, I’m seriously thinking of creating an e-book to give away and creating an email list.
I will create a weekly email series to start with, in regards to the current product range, AND, in that email list I will direct them to my website where I will create a product review of that product.
As new products are released I will stay on top of those new releases, create a product review and send an email to my list about the new releases.
Ok folks, I’m going to leave it there for today, I’ve got a fair bit to do looking what I’ve just typed out…
Thanks for hanging out with me here. And, here’s to you having a fantastic day rest of the day… I’ll see you tomorrow as
Tomorrow we’ll be on Day 22 of Learn how to build a website yourself in WordPress in 2017 where we will carry on from where we left off today!
