    Hello fellow white, gray, and blackhatters...

    I'm a network engineer by day and aiming to generate a bit of income during times where my team isn't being bombarded by support requests.

    I work in the realm of building enterprise grade solutions for VIP automated homes. I have access to products within the industry, but not at margins that would justify spinning and running my own web store (the competition offers support and this would be a conflict of interest with my current day job).

    Some Background:

    I recently got familiar with squarespace's content management platform and plan on using it to constantly generate content (as tests), try different social media/google keyword campaigns, and get familiar with how to generate and handle leads in a concise manner before I dive into wordpress or a similar more robust content manager. I am fortunate enough to not be desperate for the cash flow, however, I am desperate to fill my time vacuum that currently gets spent wasting in the depths of youtube. I recently (past year) have steered my cure for boredom to include research into more specific topics rather than America's Got Talent Top 10 Best Fart Auditions.

    Objective:

    I'm here to learn, contribute, and to earn. I have met many guys involved in "online marketing" throughout my career and social interactions. They all seem to be a copy paste of the same guy. Got lucky with some cheap dodgey product, turned success into a marketing portfolio or "clickbank", started making cash plugging in that formula for others looking to sell their own products or promote their own services, and profited regardless of immediate results all while constantly looking for the next break to invest in. No insult to any of you hardcore and lowkey (all of them were very flashy individuals, which made sense, their product was their presence) but I didn't think these guys were any smarter than I was. They were simply willing to learn the trade, find a realm they're comfortable with, use their contacts to make connections, and capitalize. Hopefully I can shake hand and put my restless mind to use with some members. One hand can wash another, but two can wash a face. See you on the forums!

    Welcome to BHW!
    @proxygo, there was nothing wrong with his reply. It's only a problem when someone is excessively posting short replies like that in this section, and @ninjagaidan mostly posts in the lounge.

    Thanks brother. I take any chance I get to hone my writing skills. SEO is a huge part of this, I agree, but once you get the traffic your content must be written in a way they can understand and read without frustration.

    A thanks to the rest of chiming in too. :)
