    Hello everybody!
    My name is Max and I am new here like many of the others in this subforum.
    I think its appropriate to introduce myself considering I plan on absorbing everything I can from this site and giving back what I can as I learn and prosper in that time!
    I would like to make some new friends on these forums and would be great to meet anyone in New York once I get some more experience. I also work for a big traffic company with real users, but that's more of a white hat thing so no need to advertise that here.

    I am working on some projects right now and since I am new to this, I have no clue so far as to how to even set up my sites. I have purchased the domains and the hosting so I am good to go. Any suggestions as to what path I can take next? I assume Wordpress is a great platform for the new people so any advice on setting up my new domains or resources would be awesome!

    I am excited to become an active member and eventually a donor of BHW!

    Kitteh,
    So far I am working on two projects, I will not go into detail on these forums but one is the automotive niche and another is a fanpage of some sort. These two projects are not your run of the mill copycat projects but both will have completely original content, something I cannot discuss online. I am doing these two projects not for the complete sake of making money but I am fully involved in these two projects and have an advantage to content and material. As we know, that does not matter in the internet marketing world if the public never sees it though!
    All I am having a problem with is putting my mind together to understand how to make the websites.
    I have read all around white and black hat forums, have downloaded many different themes, ebooks and whatnot but thats for after I learn the website creation part. Any insight would be great! Or just a nice welcoming.

    Let me tell you you're already at a massive advantage being here and joining this community. Whatever you need, information on setting up your sites, promoting them, etc. just use the search bar efficiently and it CANNOT fail you.

    Rarely there is a question asked that hasn't already been answered before.

    I hope you find great success on board. :)

    You could always pay somebody to set you up a really nice website for a decent price. But yeah wordpress is a good way to go, it is what i am currently using. Good luck you will learn a lot on this forum :)

    Thank you, I know the option is open to pay someone but I would much rather learn the basics until I get comfortable and then get into the technical side. All I care to do right now is set up all my domains with a basic "Coming Soon" page. The reason I would like to learn is so I may easily set up future sites instead of relying on paid help.
    I am interested in using my advantage to pull in some good revenue and luckily I could afford a few bucks to play the IM game once the basic processes are set up for the sites. I have goals but I am not naive. Plus my career is involved in the traffic side of IM so I do get lots of insight from big clients who run high traffic websites so I can easily see the potential in IM.
