Hi All, So I've been around IM for many years now, I've made a ton of money, lost a lot of money, made it back in IM, and lost it in real estate two times. I figured the best way to go is back to my roots and start small again. Here's what I'm going to do. #1 Build a Blog around my current job (very niche wholesale manufacturing business) #2 Build a mailing list around the DIY community in this niche (quite popular) #3 Build a forum relating to the niche (already an active member in a "competitor") #4 Build exclusive content, and affiliate for top brands in the niche First Few months Post 3-5 articles weekly ranging between 500-1000 words and at least 1 photo in each post. Slowly begin adding recommendations for products and build the mailing list Month 4-6 Build Social Media profiles and pushing the email list and social media sales channels for the niche. Month 6+ we'll see when we get there! LOL I'm in need of good tools and plugins for SEO and links to help with information on SEO, been out of the game for some time. Also, some way to track metrics, aside from GAnalytics.
