I have just finished reading a book by; Lisa Irby – Niche Website Success.
I have read many books, hardcover and eBooks to help me design and build my personal websites. Lisa’s was different, it narrowed down the important steps for getting a website up and running towards success, in an easy to understand manner.
There is something about Lisa that comes through with a higher level of trust and honesty. She is not pushing you to buy into her way of thinking or trying to get you to buy her get rich scheme. As a matter of fact, she does not have or offer any schemes that I could find, and I looked.
Many downloadable eBooks now days seem to have a catch or a ‘got ya!’ They bait you, and then try to set the hook in the last few chapters. Making you believe, you will need the extra signup program to make it all come together and work with high profits etc.
What Lisa does offer, is good solid proven advice on free tools you can use to make your website successful. And, she makes note of some programs, that do cost money to buy, but only if you really think they are necessary. If you read through her book, and use the included cross matching ‘workbook’ she offers, your only cost will be the time you put into it.
The workbook is a writable PDF file, and once you have taken your own notes while reading through the main Niche Website Success eBook, you print out the details. This is a handy feature to reference back to, as you develop your successful website. These step-by-step notes will save you many hours of work and anguish, as you lay the foundation for your profitable site.

Like I said, I have bought and read many books on website monetization, development and design. And, one thing I can say, with full confidence is: I learn something new everyday.

Also, a few major details, when it comes to proper keyword research.
Keyword research is an endless job as you create new and fresh content for a successful website. I only wish I would have found Lisa’s Niche Website Success book earlier in my career. But, it has only been completed this month (1/2012), and its subject matter is fresh and current for today’s webmaster’s issues.
