Pick a Topic for Your Site


So you want to be an affiliate and start making money off your site(s)? Well, the first thing you have to do is figure out the topic of your site.

Which topic for your site?There are two ways to go with this choice. You can either try to capitalize on something that’s popular right now, or focus on a subject that you’re interested in.

I would suggest the latter, as my experience has been that I lose interest in sites I create on trends.

After all of the initial work in getting the domain, hosting, site design, content creation, etc., I have just let sites die time and time again, because they were not interesting to me.

Your experience may be different, but I wanted to put it out there.

Anyhow, as far as picking a topic for your site, try making a list of your interests and passions. It can be a country, a sports team, a breed of dog – whatever it is that you really care about.

Do that right now, and then we’ll move on to the next step… Narrow Down Your Potential Topics.

    Yes, this is one of the important things to be taken care of. I find it real hard to concentrate on things which are of least interest to me. So naturally even the quality of output is low and ultimately a waste of time.
