I decided to start a blog in the life insurance niche.
I had spent about 2 days on picking domain – most of the expired domains had been spammed or they don’t have a lot of backlinks.
Therefore I went for a domain that is short, brandable but has few links:
Per my analysis the existing sites have very thin content, but high DA.
The niche is very lucrative.
I have a Florida insurance license and I am also in contact with an agency and I want to make them part of the promotion. I will pass the acquired leads on to them.

I registered the domain for $6.99 and used Scala Hosting for hosting it.
I created a Facebook page, added it to my Google Analytics and Search Console accounts.
Added JetPack, All-In-One SEO Pack, WP Fastest Cache and Jetpack.

I created a Pinterest account, a few boards and the first pin. I claimed the site.
I added the first post just so that I can apply for rich pins.
I added the SocketLabs plugin and all the Thrive Themes plugins.
I changed the theme to Thrive Themes Lux.
I created a logo using Canva.
I created a sitemap and submitted it to Google.
I got the first page views registered by going to my smartphone and visiting the site, it showed up in JetPack.
The site is ready for content.
