Would this be an advisable strategy?
Hi everyone! I am new to AM, and have gobbled up as much of the articles as I could, and am planning on following the steps outlined to the letter.
I have decided to focus on personal finance/debt reduction/etc as a market area, and will stick to this for as long as it takes to start making money from it. This is also an area that I am personally very interested in, and passionate about.
My plan, and this is where I have a question, is to start a blog site, work on the layout and appearance, and actually really focus on building a blog site with a decent amount of followers/readers, without actually trying to sell or market anything. The plan is then to, once I managed to generate some traffic and get a reader base, only then start putting affilliate links and ads on the site.
This way I could focus on getting traffic and a contact list first, without the added stress of "when will I get my first sale!?!" So I build up solid skills in traffic generation, website creation and blogging first.
Would you say this is a good approach to take, even though it would then take a bit longer to profit from it. It seems that a lot of beginners try and do it the other way around, and then subsequently fail or quit as a result, because the focus is on making money without the other components or aspects being in place first.
