In my last (and first) update, I said the site would be ready to launch "within a few weeks". Of course what I actually meant was "if you take out of consideration life, work and kids, then we will be ready to launch in a few weeks" 😁
Well a little over 4 months later and https://wormmaps.com/ is finally live! I still have my work cut out for me creating / uploading business profiles but it's something that takes about 5 minutes per profile and work that it's the type of work that I can slowly chip away at day by day.
My next steps are:
Upload enough data to the point where it will be useful to a lot of people in the USA
Setup some basic analytics/tracking so I can measure progress
Start sharing it on social media to get that initial traffic going
Work on writing high quality articles to drive qualified traffic (people interested in vermiculture and vermiculture products) to the site.
The response from worm farmer / vendors so far has been enthusiastic so far and I'm feeling good about my next steps being the right things to work on.
