why own website instead of free sites and social media?
I do know of many influencers who are big on Youtube, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and other social media influencers who command large influence and sponsorship deals.
But as an entrepreneur and investor, there is this keyword that I practice
#1 Sustainable, scalable assets that is sellable
My websites are 100% own, and I can buy and sell websites (my own and others) for a given price that is negotiable and agreed on (I would likely never sell NigelChua.com, but I digress) - my websites that generate $100K in sales, how much do you think I can sell them for? 5x? 10-20x?
On contrast, for an influencer who owns a Facebook or Youtube account with lots of fans and likes - do you think that website is sellable?
At any point in time, the accounts on Youtube, Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and other social media, as well as free blog/websites at blogger and WordPress can be subjected to policy changes.
This can mean that if you get X amount of shared revenue on Youtube, it can be slashed to ANY amount by the owner.
In fact, your account can be frozen/siezed/blocked EASILY with just some complaints, negative reports etc.
That is why I am a large proponent of owning my own digital real estate, which I can control, grow, or sell if I want to.
Follow their 10-day Action Guide step-by-step, and do not rush the process. Take up to 2.5 months to do so (because if you should decided to NOT continue, you can refund 100% within the first 3 months - after that, it's pro-rated refunds).
Once you've decided on your niche, based on the Action Guide and Brainstorm outcomes, choose your domain name.
My modus operandi:
Pull up all the keywords as per SBI's Brain Storm It
Map it out in an excel or Google sheet and plan the site structure layout
Write the articles and link them properly
Keep going until you have at least 100 articles. And depending on how focused, motivated and interested you are, aim for for as many relevant articles as possible. If you're motivated, at least 2 articles per week (or more).
Additional authority building activities:
Blog and website commenting on complementary sites
