  • Quilty of content

  • Original imagines (and quality)

  • Engagement (what good is 1.5 million follows if only 3 like the post?)

  • Niche

  • Social Media Followers

  • Domain Authority, Trust Flow and Ahrefs rankings - plus other specific to your niche

The brilliant thing about starting to make money online, no matter how you chose to do it, is that while you can take plenty of advice from the most successful online content creators and sellers, and follow most of what they’ve done, you can also still create something that is personal and unique to you.
