    Hi Wayn,
    First of all thank you for the post!
    I have some observations about the content as well as about the form.
    1. For the content: I find that the article is too light and does not present practical information for the reader who must go elsewhere to complete his learning.
    But, it remains that the article is well structured with titles and subtitles.
    2. In my point of view, it’ll be better to choose between 3 to 5 social media for sharing the article. Having ten social media channels scatters the reader a bit and drives him to skip this step.

    Good luck

    1. Wayne says:

      Hello Youness

      Thank you for the comment and I’m glad you liked the structure of the site and I agree there is to many social media channels, I have just put up a new program and got carried away. Thanks


  4. Heidi Yates says:

    I’m just starting out in the online world and unfortunately I think I may have skipped a few steps after reading your article.

    Most interested in “determining the demand” as I’m not really sure how to go about this in my chosen market.

    Look forward to trawling your site for some more info. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Wayne says:

      Determining the demand requires you to do a search for your product by trying different search terms, Jaaxy is the #1 search tool for this as it tells how how many visitors you can expect from it. It also depends on what you are selling, you can go on amazon and check out your product there as they show you what is trending and hot. Generally speaking most anything sells well on the internet if it sells well in the stores on the street. The best policy is to sell or promote what you are passionate about as you already know all about it.

    Thanks for writing this article. I am thinking about starting a new website on a new topic that I haven’t written about before. You mentioned in #2 that you should Determine the Demand for Your Idea. You have given a few ideas regarding research. Thank you for that. My question is that I have heard that a niche with only a handful of visitors still has the potential to be profitable. Do you believe this? And if so what is the best way to go about growing this idea into an online business.

    1. Wayne says:

      Thank you for your comment and as for the niche you would like to get into, yes I do believe it can still be profitable but may take a little more work.

      Now how to make it profitable, without knowing the niche I will use pets for example. You could start with dogs and go with diseases, causes and what to treat them with or do you need to take them to the vet, then maybe toys and from there to dishes and food Etc. There are hundreds maybe thousands of good long tail keywords that you can come up with for these using Jaaxy using the free or the premium program.

      I hope that I have given you some insight into what you are planning to do, Good Luck.
