    I need someone who is interested in growing being part of a new product that is focused in social media advertising.

    I have finished developing the first release of the advertising platform, think of it as google ad sense for Facebook and twitter. i have had an offer for someone to help out at $100hr and i wanted to get another perspective, or someone else who might be interested in this sort of project... the marketing/obtaining traffic part is new to me and i don't want to spend 6 months figuring out what works and what doesnt....

    I am open to discussing in public or pm...

    You can bounce questions off me but I will tell you right now that legit traffic is a bitch. You are either spending time and money on SEO for organic traffic or you can lose money on media buys (advertising on websites) until you get your sales process optimized. Some never get this far.

    I don't suggest blackhat methods if you have a legit business going on. Why? Because I believe those are short-term methods. Google, Craigslist, Ebay and whoever else will probably discover what you are doing at some point and then you have to come up with another plan to game the system. I think long-term it is better to work within the system. But my clients are established BBB members and the such.

    What are you being offered for $100 / hour? They better know social, organic, and media buys at least. For that amount they should understand conversion ratios, a/b and multi-variant testing and a host of other things.

    I would expect that much and more for $100 / hour.

    Yea thats what I don't know how to do at this point or judge who is full of it. This site, I intend it to be legit (others.... not so much :p)

    it would be devising a marketing plan/strategy, changing the messaging, he said he would outsource some of the SEO/ design work... he was more about the concepts... like right now the tag line is something like "where popularity pays" and the suggestion was to change it more to be "get paid to share the things you like".

    once BHW registers that i have 15 posts ill msg you the site link.
