    So as the thread states, I have finished putting together an initial attempt at an authority site (14-15k words in total to start). I have about $500 to invest into the site in terms of marketing, seo, etc. The plan is to monetize with amazon affiliates.

    My question is, do I invest in a couple of BHW seo packages first and wait to rank? Or, should I focus on getting that first sale (through outsourcing forum posting/FB group posting) and then focus on seo?

    Any and all suggestions are welcome!

    Thanks.

    Congratulations for getting started.
    That being said.. Spending money on SEO packages can quickly put you in the hole.
    Amazon affiliates isn't the easiest way to make money since the margins.

    Consider adding google adsense as another rev outlet and doing SEO yourself.
    Just focus on content and making the site SEO friendly. Build a clean site with a clear brand and SEO will take care of itself.

    Ironic huh? Simply stating that an authority site is the goal, just unranked currently. Thanks for the feedback!
