    hey this is my first post on this forum. Finally made an account after browsing for about a month now. There are some extremely smart people on this website and it’s awesome! I have learned a lot and it has opened my mind up to discover new ways to make money that aren’t really being done yet.

    So I have an idea that involves selling a online service (not gonna say it because I really think it has potential).

    Right now I’ve just been testing it out through email and I’ve made about $100 in the last 2 days just hitting random people in the niche up. Doing this all through email has been a pain in the ass and I know it would be a lot easier for not only me, but the customer too if I were to set up a website and have it pretty much automatic.

    A problem with that though is that I don’t know how to make a website. I know I can just get Wordpress and some hosting but will that be doable? Is there better options? I don’t mind watching a lot of YouTube videos on a certain aspect in web design or Wordpress to learn because the more I learn the better! Another problem I have is getting traffic to my website. I’m not the best with SEO. Any recommendations on how to get traffic to a website without Facebook or Google ads?

    I really think I could be making some decent money here if I can do this correctly. I am open to hearing anyone’s opinions on this and anyone’s recommendations on how to do it best.

    Sorry if this post is all over the place. I’m on mobile and sort of rushing it so hopefully it’s easy to read and easy to understand. I also want to thank everyone who has posted useful information on this website, it gave me a lot of hope and I needed that. Thanks and I hope you guys can help me out here

    Check the marketplace here, a lot of people offer hosting, so you can get good deals here. If you don't know anything about HTML or PHP i would suggest you use wordpress. It's just simple and it makes a lot of the hard work very easy on your side. Yes sure, watch some tutorials and videos on youtube because learning something new is always good, you can never learn enough :p
    Without really knowing what you are reselling i can't give you a definite answer but Google Adwords is expensive if you don't know what you are doing. If you are targeting older people then i suggest you stick to BingAds. If it involves something with fashion etc. then go for Pinterest and Instagram, but you basically can't go wrong with any social media. I would always target any social media which is out there. Can't go wrong with some extra traffic.

    BHW has some great guides on SEO, so i suggest you check the pinned posts on the BlackHatSEO and WhiteHatSEO Forum out, they are a great start.

    This should be a good start for you

    You can go to the Marketplace and you can find people in there who can help you get started. Digital marketing is what you need to invest your money in and there are many people in there who can offer you what you need. YouTube isn't a bad idea, as well.
