My Gift to You: Newbie Niche Site Month
Next week kicks off “newbie niche site month” – a month where I’m going to help those who are new to creating niche sites in a way that no one has ever helped someone before (at least, not for free).
There is a TON of information out there about niche research, keyword research, setting up a WordPress blog, monetizing it, etc. People happily give away this information, especially when they can insert an affiliate link in every other sentence. There’s nothing wrong with that (everyone, even the most respected bloggers, does it).
The one thing people almost never share are the results of that research – specific keywords and domain names that are available. What I’ve found (just based on questions in e-mails that I’ve received) is that people have no problem learning the entire process and gathering all the necessary resources. What people do have a problem with is that first step – finding a domain to build a site with, based on solid, fundamental keyword research. And that’s going to be my gift to you this holiday season.
The Details of Newbie Niche Site Month
During this month, I am going to send out one e-mail per week (and I won’t tell you in advance which day it’ll be) to my newsletter subscribers (in addition to my pre-scheduled content that you may receive if you’re a recent subscriber) that will contain a short list of available domains, generally based on products that you can sell as an affiliate.
I want to help people who have never built a niche website, or who have tried building one, but failed. I’m not trying to feed amazing domain names to people who are already experienced with developing niche websites.
I’m a firm believer in starting small when you’re new at something. Run a 5k before you run a marathon. Cook dinner for your girlfriend before you cook dinner for an entire party. Achieve “small wins” so that you gain the knowledge and confidence necessary to go after the big fish.
With that in mind, I’m going to give out domains that aren’t highly competitive – they may be based on keywords that only receive 1,000-2,000 exact searches per month. Even if a site like this only allows you to earn an additional $5-10 per month, that’s still $5-10 of passive income each month. It’ll pay for your domain, and you’ll take what you learned and go after a bigger and better website.
What Types of Domains Are These?
These domains will generally be the types that work well for Amazon affiliate niche sites. These are great for beginners because it’s very easy to convert sales with Amazon. You can read more about what I’m doing as an affiliate of Amazon with my Amazon niche site challenge.
Also, these domains will all be .com/.net/.org domains.
Sign Me Up! How Do I Make Sure I Receive These E-mails?
If you are already subscribed to my newsletter, you’ll receive them without needing to take any action. If you’re not subscribed, you can subscribe in the fields below or in any of the sign up forms you see on this blog (if you are reading this in an RSS reader, you may need to actually open up this post in your browser to see the form):
In addition to getting the newbie niche site e-mail, you’ll receive my regularly scheduled “muse news” newsletter (it’s non-spammy, helpful content that I don’t really share here) and my Ultimate Backlink Tracker.
Won’t There Be Many People Rushing to Register These Domains?
Maybe, but I don’t think so. A lot of people may already be experienced with finding good domains, so these won’t interest them. Other people are simply too lazy. If you see a domain you want, go for it. If it’s taken, don’t worry – try another one on the list or wait for next week’s e-mail.
I’d love to hear what you think about this “newbie niche site month” idea, so please leave a comment! Thanks!
