Hello All,

I'm the new moderator for the BrainstormIt! Forum. I look forward to keeping track of this forum and getting to know new members.

Moderators don't "have" to answer posts, but
if you have the knowledge we do encourage it.
Also you will watch out for spam/promo, affiliate
links, duplicate posts, posts that don't belong
in your forum(s), and similar.

I have two websites and am a homeschooling Mom and my time is very busy; so I really understand that you might need a quick answer at an odd time. I enjoy reading these SBI's forums and look forward to helping you.

Best Advice to New SBIers:

Do be sure to watch the whole Action Guide once through, then open a second window and "do" the AG:


The following notes might be of excellent help to you when you are brainstorming. They will be some of the notes and links to which I refer myself:

1. The best places to look for information are in the Action Guide entries using Ctrl F for the term brainstorm on the main Action Guide page:

2. In this section of the TNT HQ:

3. And Maria's answer here: With further clarifications in the same thread.

And here is the Day 2 "sweet spot" for determining a Site Concept Keyword:

Day 2 > Evaluate Keywords (9:39) 10/16
Demand > 2,000 (preferably >3,000)
2+ Keywords with Demand > 1,000
10+ Keywords With Demand > 100
Supply < 200,000 (sweet spot 20,000 to 60,000)

4. Also here's a super helpful recording of a webinar that takes about an hour to watch. Sitesell Pro Terri does a very good job of showing how to fill in the blanks for your blueprint:

Terri David Webinar - Keywords, Topics, Blueprint


5. A note from Cheryl that takes you right to the TNT HQ articles with lots of brainstorming ideas:

[quoteIf you haven't checked out the articles related to Brainstorming and Finding your Niche
in the Tips and Techniques HQ!, I would recommend doing so. It may help you refine
your searches to find a narrower niche or give you some good ideas...

Here's a good one to start with...

Find the Right Spot on the Narrow-to-Broad Spectrum][/quote]

Debs, Dee and others have also added great notes in that thread.

It's great to be able to "pay it forward". Have a great day!

Hi Morgen,

Too cute. There are times when it's not fun - especially as a volunteer who's not very techy. :-)

I'm happy to help where I can.

Have a great week!

I see you around a lot. It's tough - being on call.
I prefer running my site. Especially since I'm re-focusing and have torn the tier structure apart.
I'm having to re-link all the pages and fix all the breadcrumbs.


BI! is a good piece of SBI! It's the first introduction for people coming in.
When I first started, I was in a mindset of "Trust the process" and just went ahead. Now, I see so much more of the big picture, that it really helps.

I love the module, that's for sure! Nobody else does it quite like SBI! That's why I'm here.

Great notes. I wouldn't have my business without SBI!
