    I am thinking of running a few websites. 1 is going to be selling a simple Ebook. The other is going to be an affilliate shoe selling website. And another will be selling shirts. Are any of these good ideas?

    My question is...how do I get enough people to my site? I am new to online advertising and ecommerce. Can anyone give me a few pointers?

    Well, your gonna get a lot of other ideas. But my first thought is, you cant run before you can walk. I would start a simple blog or something text based and learn about writing content and SEO with that. Learn to rank. Especially in a market like that, Backlinking and Ranking are gonna be a lot of the struggle because of the lack of "quality" content on the sites.

    I would pick something like "horse shoes" and build a wordpress blog around that, and learn to rank. Analyze your data and find out what works and what doesn't.

    This also, will keep you from checking your Commissions for your shirts that you aren't getting traffic too, and getting frustrated.

    I'd set my expectations high on ranking for "horse shoe" terms first, and move up the latter. The amount of stuff you will learn, will be amazing. Once you understand that, and see the holes in your own strategy, You can fix them, and you will find holes in other peoples strategies that you can *cough* exploit.

    Just my opinion. Start off with the basics. Black hat and affiliate stuff are not the basics. Ranking for "horse shoe repair guide" with adsense is :)

    I know it's not what you want to hear. But anything in life....You gotta start small. Its amazing how many of the basics some people ignore or never learned.
