My website is nearly completed as a seller for amazon associates and I need to start getting traffic. I realize that it probably depends a lot on the niche that I chose, but my questions are just based on general practices. My question is this: What do you think is the most efficient method for long term profit? 1) Should I get out the wallet and buy some ads to get the traffic? If so, which route should I take? Facebook, Google, Bing, Pinterest? 2) Would social media traffic generate amazon leads? If so, which networks should I build? 3) Would it be best to go the route of SEO? Building backlinks and making content to get ranked for keywords in my niche? I am really interested to hear from people who have / are already using the amazon associates method on a website. I already dropped load of cash on hosting and such and need to start making some money. At the same time, I want to build something that is sustainable and could potentially run on autopilot. Any input would be appreciated.
