A big help would be to share this website and spread the word. It’s a small thing to do and it helps this website reach more people.
Once your website is up and running, with your theme installed, plug-ins installed, your core pages written, your WordPress site customized the way you want it. Start publishing content. Get your website up to 10 pages of published content. Then start promoting it. Balancing every one hour on your website with 2 hours off your website promoting it.
Good luck with building your website and contact me if you need any advice.
