Coaching: Rob’s Niche Site (Session #6)

This post may contain affiliate links so I earn a commission. Please read my disclosure for more info.

It has been a few weeks since Rob and I met for our last session. It was pretty interesting this time because Rob implemented the system that we planned in previous sessions. The system was around using templates for hiring content writers and the actual content.

It work really well! Too well.

Rob got an unprecedented amount of content in a short period of time and it exposed a new weak point in the system.

If you are just joining us, then you should catch up to get the background…

Notes & Comments from Rob

  • Trouble! We have too much content and not enough time to post it.
  • Perfectionist tendencies slow things down and may not have a big benefit.
  • It seems overwhelming to document the process and train the VA(s).
  • Will the VA be able to deal with proper grammar.
  • Next Steps:
    • Document the process.
    • Create a checklist based on that…
    • Use that as a template for each piece of content.
    • (Note from Doug: Checklists work! Pilots & Surgeons use them for a reason.)
    • Hire a VA to work through the checklist…emphasize training and openness to ask questions.

  • Peter

    Can you show some other your successful niche sites? Thanks!

    • Peter, I do have a site that I am focusing on right now…and I hope I can bring you some of the rankings, traffic, and earnings very soon. It has taken a while to get this site ranking and I am still working on it.

  • Thanks again folks and yes I am a big time fan of checklists. I use them for reviews, pages, tables etc and any content that goes on my sites. It is amazing what small things I would forget without a couple of simple templates and a tick list. I now have templates for all the pages, my review templates and my check lists. It does make life so much easier.
    I tried talking my wife into posting content and she “raised an eyebrow.” In Ireland than means “NO.”

    In terms of time here is what I have noticed. Even when you get an article outsourced and written and following a template I still want to tweak it. Then I add external links, internal links, a few images and a video. I have timed that for 5 articles and the average time to get it up there is a full 30 minutes for each article…still pretty time consuming.

    I started building a new website about 6 months ago with just one article a week after all the pages were posted. One brand new article written by myself and posted up (about 1,250 words) takes a full 2 hours. The site is ranking now which is good and has started to make a few sales. There is about 25 articles on it. So far about 30 hours spent on the site. Without templates and tick lists this would have been easily double that….so project planning works
