    Hey guys,
    I'm a certified lurker. Been wandering these parts for quite some time soaking in as much information as I possibly can. It's come to the point that I'm ready to start something and I'm in need of some advice. I recently got ahold of a pretty awesome seo related domain name, and am ready to start building a website around it. My main question is, do I outsource the services... or purchase the software to provide them myself. If anyone could share their experiences it would be fantastic.

    at the end of the day that is going to be up to you. However, for what I know I recommend that you learn the basics of seo, both offline and online. Buy a couple of cheap tools, and take advantage of all the free trial offers you can. Some people sub out and some don't. I prefer to do most of the work myself, but I do use trusted vendors here when I need to. The thing is, when you get a bunch of clients and you don't know why things happen you might end up loosing clients. If you want a really good thread to read, read taktical's thread. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...empire-earning-15-000-month-three-months.html Good luck!

    First of all, welcome and congrats on finally posting here! :)

    Now, to answer your question... When it comes to providing SEO services, you really have to know WHAT YOU ARE DOING. The mere fact that you asked this question gives me the idea that you don't. Or you're not really a pro when it comes to SEO.

    So yes, if you want to push through with that plan of yours, the answer is to outsource the services. But be careful when you outsource; you should be sure that the guy you're getting knows what he's doing too.

    You need to build a strong reputation in the field before you can expect to grow further. :)

    Good luck! ^^

    Thanks for awesome thread reference B1 and warm welcome nix:D
    As I said, Im attempting to learn all I can. It's definitely a priority of mine to be a master before I even think about selling a thing. I'd imagine most of the well known services on here would be reputable, but im also interested in learning some software so I can become more profitable in the future. A lot of people talk highly of AMR on these forums, but Ubot looked rather interesting. Is it even worth outsourcing at first if at some point I turn over and start doing the work myself?

    To answer your question, Let me ask you one!!

    Do you medicate yourself when you fall ill or take services of a professional i.e. Doctor similarly in case of other consultants Tax consultants, Architects etc. If you think you are one man army and know all tools and tactics of SEO game then go for it otherwise
    Hire a professional guy.
    Also, keep your objective in mind and budget while doing so!!

    Haha, Love the analogy. I guess its time to start finding the right men for the job then! And maybe tinker in some programs to further my knowledge.
