Authority Site Follow Along
Owning an authority site is the internet dream.
One that ranks well in search engines every time you post a new article, attracts social media followers naturally, and well... makes enough money to live off of.
I'm starting a brand new authority site and am going to document the process here.
I'm using a domain I have owned for a while. I'm unsure if the "aged domain" thing is a myth or reality, but I think it will help that it's not brand new when trying to rank in Google.
I'm making it simple and using the Performag theme from Thrive themes, because they include a lot of tools to collect leads, and do marketing properly.
I think Divi would have been a good option too using their Bloom and Monarch tools. But I'm sticking with Thrive.
It's tough to gain traction right away so I created a Twitter page first. I'm going to use Rewst to grow the account and get the initial traffic, to retarget on Facebook.
I'm also creating a few quick posts that I'm curating from YouTube using a YouTube cut-up style post.
Results from week one:
- 2 pieces of content published
- 70 Twitter Followers from using Rewst.
I'll also post the info for the site once it's more established. It's easier when you don't have someone copying you right away 😉
