Niche, niches. Progress
I have set up two websites. One was a transfer of a site I had set up for business consulting and never used, and I am planning to use it to promote my consulting services, as well as tools, products and workshops. I have a different approach to consulting and focus on fulfillment factors.
The second one will be promoting to small business owners specifically, and primarily with WA promotion.
There can be a lot of repurposing of content between the two. Because of my professional background, I know I can knock out about 8, 1k+ word blog posts, including images and links in two part time evenings after kids go to sleep. That is enough to supply both websites with content. Then I'll need to schedule in social media posts and what not, which I hate, but will do and grumble to my computer about it!
Not All Good Keywords Have Good Affiliate Potential
The original niche I was planning to do, on proposal management (must of my business is related to this), had some great keyword opportunities, and domain names... but the companies catering to this industry don't leverage afiliate marketing on the whole. I dont feel like I would be able to provide the right value at this point. For some niches, I have learned, you really have to research the affiliate opportunities before taking the plunge! I'm putting it on the back burner for now, but may buy a related domain now just because!
And then, the writer in me really wants to do more; Ihave so much momentum going right now. A website just related to something I enjoy from a personal perspective, not just professional. I have found a niche to fill in this gap, and already started the keyword search, but am hemming and hawing about whether to take the plunge, on a third website, completely unrelated, and set aside a third night each week for content development...
Should I? Anyone run three sites right from the beginning? I need a go-for-it! ... or a hell-no!
