I think I've recently discovered a niche with several high-traffic keywords, that doesn't have a good source of content ranking for it. I intend to create a content site for this niche, and I'm looking for suggestions on how to best do it. To be clear, my priorities are:
- Serve the audience in this niche with high-quality content.
- Minimize my opportunity costs by not spending a ton of time on this site. (Automation and evergreen content is key.)
- Monetize ethically, providing value to myself and visitors.
The current plan is to register a domain for it, set up Wordpress, start writing articles, aggregate content others have produced (legally; roundups w/ exerpts or video embedding or link lists, not scraping), build links, and eventually monetize through affiliate sales of relevant products (e.g. well-reviewed books on Amazon about the subject).
What tips do you have for setting this up, managing it, promoting it, and monetizing it?
Edit: I'm looking for specific tactics, the little details that make a big difference. I know how to do each of the things I talk about above, but I haven't executed on each of them for this purpose before.
