    So my main project right now is a resume writing website (I outsource it), but do all the web design and marketing myself.

    Mainly focused on building a list I can sell to through optins in my site, which the traffic is driven to it by facebook ads.

    Going to start adwords soon.

    Just wondering if you guys have done anything similar to this (outsourced service websites), and if so what were the key elements to make it successful?

    I'm focusing on learning copywriting, email marketing, and PPC ads, anything else that's key or some special tips or strategies that work well for this kinda thing?

    Thanks

    Lots of people do/have done this.

    If you're doing CVs, I would perhaps look at focusing on a specific job niche as there are so many sites out there already selling CVs.

    I would look at advertising and promoting your service on Linkedin as it's a natural place find people who are job hunting and need help with their CV. I would also outsource someone to create you some banners (what makes a successful CV etc) for Pinterest.

    Another thing you could do it tie up with some recruitment agencies. Either paid banner advertising or perhaps you could pay them for referrals.

    Thanks for the advice - will definitely look at LinkedIn ads. Currently my main traffic source is fb ads but will diversify into adwords and pinterest, linkedin etc.

    Never thought of advertising on pinterest though. Sounds interesting, will def try that immediately.
