    Forgive me, or move this if you must, but since this is my first post I thought I'd do a little introduction as well.

    I am semi-new to Internet marketing (I've managed to make over $100 in a couple months - amazing, I know) and attempted it a little when I was younger although I was using crazy black hat tactics in the most stupid way possible, got banned from AdSense and never thought about it again. Well I run a web/print design company as well as a social media network for independent musicians, and my previous job had me doing some SEO for their clients.

    All that to say, about a month or two ago I had a meeting with a giant douche (is this a family forum?), who kept going on and on about being the master of Internet marketing and being in the "inner circle" who wanted tons of stuff for close-to-free.

    Of course I tell him "no dice" and he proceeds to make me feel like I just made the biggest mistake of my life, akin to cheating on my wife with an 80 year old lady of the night, so I shrugged it off.

    I consider myself a smart guy and within hours I'm pretty sure I figured out more than he knew about Internet Marketing. A friend of mine has been making 1-2k per week via one of those "BS Your Way to Internet Riches" pyramid schemes -- *cough* -- I mean doing affiliate marketing for a "work from home" guru who's product he resells.

    I'm actually getting somewhat discouraged with the number of choices and directions you can go, and the insane amount of info on each topic. Having a relatively small budget makes it scary (I've started an adsense/amazon blog and am going to attempt to get a blog registered with Google news in the next week or so).

    Now onto the actual question(s)...


    I've begun using an alias or two and I'm trying to do some basic SEO (article writing, blog posting, social media posting, etc) and I feel like there's a ridiculous amount of record keeping that needs done.

    For example, for each campaign or blog you're running, do you really create multiple accounts? What about article/press release sites that want business names, addresses, phone numbers, etc? Having 20 twitter accounts (as an example, I'm not even sure that's smart) for 20 different websites seems mind blowing to me.

    I'd really like to try to get into CPA as I have an "investor" friend who would be willing to buy some 'test traffic' for me but I feel the most nervous about this. It seems like with my SEO and web design background, I may have a slight advantage in this field, but I feel like I really want someone to walk me through my first couple campaigns without shelling out $1,297 for an amazing series that will help me get all the hoes, cars, and mansions I ever wanted.

    The amount of information on this amazing forum is actually turning my brain to mush, not due to quality but quantity. My businesses are struggling (I know the social media network will be fine for a while) and I'd like to get started asap, I understand these things take some time but I'm doing far too much work for my income with my web design company (if you're from the warrior forum I can already see through your sales pitch trying to use that last line to your advantage).

    So basically, thanks everyone, and any insight?

    Maybe I should've posted this in introductions :D

    I'm actually not having too hard of a time managing my 'aliases' and web accounts (excel works wonders) but I'm still not too sure what to do about article directories, for example, that want my address and phone number and other information I don't wish to give out (especially using a 'pen-name').
