Plus, isn’t the point to enjoy your cheap web business? Have fun with it!
Once your selected your topic, you’ll need to do some research so you can write 8-10 short, but informative articles on it. This will serve as your content for your site and will help advertise the potential of your site as a profitable medium for the prospective buyers. Though, don’t worry if your writing style is somewhat less than Shakespeare, the articles are only forming the foundation of what the site could be.
