New to setting up, building, and promoting websites? Don’t worry! I’m here to help you!

If you have any questions about any step below, please feel free to contact me.

  1. Pick a market/audience to serve.  Research monetization methods for that market.
    1. What are your passions?
    2. Are there other people out there searching for information on your passion in many different ways?
    3. Of the people ranking, does it look like they’re actually making money?
    4. What value can you add to people in this market?
  2. Keyword Research (this doesn’t have to be perfect — you can build on your work over time)
    1. Use Keyword Revealer (I make a commission if you purchase through my link) or another keyword tool or just Google or YouTube to document what your market is searching.  More information on how to do good Keyword Research coming soon.
    2. Make an SEO Site Structure/Conceptual Hierarchy of unique searches your market is typing into the search engines.
  3. Choose a domain name
    1. Part of or the whole of your main keyword in it
    2. At least one “flavor” word
  4. Buy domain name and hosting account (same or different companies — easier if same).
