    Hey all, just thought I'd introduce myself.

    About me:

    • 4 years digital marketing experience
    • Client side & agency experience (mainly consumer finance, property, fashion, retail, and energy verticals)
    • Recently realised I can apply my skills to making money for myself, ROI on first attempt: > 700%

    It's a pleasure to be here. I'm hoping there'll be loads I can learn about the "dark side", and plenty to share about transmuting my marketing skills for these purposes.

    Cheers!

    Agency experience goes a long way here for a person that was successful... I look forward to hearing about some of your methods as I am sure many others are as well.

    Welcome BurakkuJakku:

    Black Hat SEO/Marketing isn't really as "dark" as most people think.
    It's more about being clever by using automation tools and thinking
    outside of the box.

    Enjoy your stay, and keep us informed of your progress. :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    Welcome to BHW!
    You'll be using your old skills you learned from traditional online marketing agencies along with great tweaks that you'll learn here.
    Enjoy ;)

    Paid search marketing, service based offering. Google doesn't like my product, so there are some problems regarding AdWords policy violations. I'll probably share what I've learned regarding this, when I have more knowledge. I couldn't find a definitive guide here, though such a guide would obviously go out of date quite regularly.

    There is not a lot of information here on paid search advertising so your thoughts and experiences would be welcomed I am sure. Granted it may not be 100% up to date but what is in IM?
