Good day BH'ers. I haven't had success with anything yet due to lack of resources (time, money, tools). I have about $1000 to invest now and would like to make the most of it. Money can buy tools, and also time (outsourcing). I earlier talked to a good friend of mine here at BHW who's always generous to offer me advice. I'd appreciate more opinions/advice on some of my ideas: I plan to do both online and offline marketing. Offline pays fast. Online (seo) is slow money, and I'm honestly too short on money to be investing into long term projects only. Once I have some short term money coming in, I can work on long term projects. ONLINE Buy Tools - Scrapebox for $57. AMR for $77 or should I just buy blasts? BMD for $147 is too expensive, so I'll just buy blasts. I already have SenukeX but it sucks. Buy niche sites - Some BHers are selling some pre-made adsense sites for as low as $27 each in BST. Hire a VA - Have him write articles, spin them, make manual 2.0s, and make him post/comment in latest forums and blogs to drive quick traffic to my review sites, as shared by Meatball in his method thread. Keyword Research - Buy/subscribe to a keyword database service offered in the BST section and buy some good EMDs. OFFLINE - Get a DBA - Hire someone to research and mail out a 100 letters to targeted local companies offering local SEO (Google places letter, found in the download section) and ORM (7878's method) - Hire someone, or the same person above, to cold call targeted companies for online services. - Use the VA to do all the manual stuff for Google places etc. I'd love some suggestions and advice from each of my blackhatter from another mother.
