Writing a Web Site Plan Made Easy
Video Tutorial for setting website categories
Writing a web site plan is actually a very simple, yet cumbersome process. Because when you are putting a business plan together for your web site you absolutely must find out exactly how people are looking for the products you intend to sell.
What I do when writing a web site plan is start with product research followed by keyword research.
Once I have determined a based set of products to promote I will begin brainstorming categories of complementary products and services.
Here is a case study outline of writing a web site plan for my new site that will sell MP3 Players.
1. Visit Amazon.com
I do this to get a list of the best sellers. This is a really fast way of finding out what products are selling right now, essentially by doing this you are putting together a recession proof business plan.
To get the best sellers simply click through the various categories at Amazon.com and click on the “Bestsellers” tab on their web site.
When you are starting a business it is VERY wise to sell what’s already selling.
2. Keyword Research
I will then use WordTracker to generate a list of keyword phrases to target to get search engine traffic by writing articles using Visitor Experience Optimization (VEO) techniques.

This research will form the categories I will use to form my web site plan.
