    Greetings guys.

    As I tried to find a way to make money online I decided to have a professional product built so I could sell it. The site is great and very informative but turns out I don't know squat about traffic generation and due to several responsibilities, I haven't had the time to learn how to promote it.

    The plan right now is either selling it for at least what I paid, or have someone send traffic to it until it makes around $3K a month consistently.

    Given your vast experience, what would you say is the best course of action?

    Every suggestion on how to sell it or get it to make sales is welcome.

    You can't expect to sell the site for what you paid to make it for if it isn't making anything. What stops someone else from making the site with their own developers for a cheaper price? If you are going to sell it, expect to sell it for less than what you made it for and let it be a good lesson for you to think about what you can do before jumping into developing anything.

    I know I screwed up bad...

    Now, if selling isn't an option, what about using one of the SEO or Traffic services offered in here?

    No wonder the site is shit. Why buy from them when you can get better stuff here.

    Jokes aside, look at the bst threads in the forum and see if you can get traffic yourself. You won't get a lot for a site without traffic/earnings

    Yeah... it hit me later on. I seriously can't remember what I was thinking, but what's done it's done.

    I'll check out those threads.
