Torn between establishing another site or combining

Last Update: September 10, 2017

I have a construction business which I created a site for. I revamped it on joining WA. I do property renovations, also known as remodeling or rehabilitation, for clients. I cover from floor to ceiling being tiles, kitchen cupboards, bathrooms and ceilings. I have a network of professionals and subcontractors I use for this. This is step 1 of 4 in my 15 year plan to become a property developer.

On the side I have managed to bring a group of my peers to form a property investment club where we bring our funds together on a monthly basis in order to jointly buy properties for rental. We should be able to buy one property per year. This will build a foundation for funding property development by the time I reach stage 4 of my vision.

These properties will need some renovation at one point or the other, including on purchase to improve the value, ongoing maintenance during the tenant occupancy or when we decide to change the setup for various objectives.

I have some ambitious thoughts about the online offerings concerning this group initiative include a membership function for current members and a future offering of client members for some products I have in mind including affiliate marketing.


Now I would like to post some blogs concerning this new initiative. So I am wondering whether I should do this on my construction site or establish a new site for this niche. I am inclined to separate the two as separate niches but I also do want to spread myself too thin. I already have another site promoting WA on top of having a full time job in IT.

Would appreciate some thoughts for or against or even a third alternative. Thank you friends.

I think that the 2 sites is the way to go. Plus the way site. Just caution about too thin as you say. Wish you much success.

I would do two sites, one as your property development site, the other with your construction site. I would external link them in such away that the site they are on is still view able but connected to the other site. ie If they are on your construction site, this site still remains up on the screen while the other site (property development) becomes available on a different page!

I like the idea of a second site. I have three sites and for me that's a reasonable number. I don't know that I want more than three due to time constraints. Please let us know what you decide.

I will definitely let you know. I am 90% inclined on combining them for now since they are closes related. People looking of property investment would also be interested in doing renovations so the synergy is very close.

That is an interesting question. I just looked at your website. It is really nice and inspires confidence. It looks genuine and friendly!

I can imagine you including this new venture in the existing site. I can also imagine you would like to keep them separate in some ways.

Could you combine them for now to avoid the need to start a whole new site and then later create a separate site? Do you have much help for the websites? You seem very busy already so I imagine time is one of your top concerns.

I am sure you will do well whichever way you go!

Thanks Jessica for taking the time to review. I do have some help on the affiliate marketing site where I get some articles written or reviewed for a few. I haven't sought help on the construction one. I guess it is one way to alleviate the challenge, by getting some help.

My honest opinion? Work on the one website and build it up first before you start another .

Thanks Richard. I am quite inclined towards that. What I am wondering is if it would be wise to cover both initiatives on the same site.

Awesome idea to utilise a subdomain under the umbrella of the main one. I guess I should explore it more to determine the ranking considerations of there separation. Great idea indeed as it keeps them tied together by the main domain but separated by the subdomain. Will share my findings
