    So... I'm a long time reader and first time poster at black hat forum. Although, I have purchased several things from several of you (you know who you are). I was just hoping you guys might give me some tips.

    If you had, say, 300 unique ebooks published on a merchant site and you only had $1000 to market them, how would you do it?

    I'm planning on creating a review site pointing to each book (all competitive keywords of course) and sending a few back-links a day to each page with scrapebox. I'm also planning on outsourcing creation of 10 twitter and 10 facebook profiles with 50,000 fans/followers each. (through freelance websites and fiverr) According to the pricing I've seen on elance, freelancer, and fiverr this should be possible. After this I'm planning on scrapping news and posting relevant info on each twitter/facebook account 9 times daily with 1 post daily pointing to a book. (I'll have to automate this somehow)

    Am I doing this the right way? How would you guys do it and how successful do you think you'd be?

    Thanks for any help, I'd deeply appreciate it.

    Start by researching your keywords and then aim to rank for the easiest ones first, then work your way up. This way your site will be building authority gradually and you'll get some trickle income while on the way up. If you start at the top you'll be in for a long wait.

    Thanks for the advice DamageX, they're actually all fairly uncompetitive keywords (trying to stick to less than pr3 competition). If nothing else I should start ranking up in long tail keywords pretty quickly. I have a few years of experience in SEO and article marketing, my big problem is that I have absolutely no experience in social marketing (and I've made my revenue thus far off of ad revenue, sales I've never done before).

    I do appreciate your advice, I didn't think about starting with ranking the easiest first, I was going to try ranking them all at the same time. Thanks for posting.
