First, I would like to introduce myself. I am a business owner and would like to expand my local business to the Internet Market. Knowing that the internet is the largest market today, I know there is a great opportunity to expand. It was 2 months ago when I started learning about IM on blackhatforums. I've been reading and tested out common IM techniques with forum backlinks(somewhat tedious), facebook, ebay, twitter(using tweet attacks), and easy WP seo tool/widget. I feel as if my train of thought is scattered right now and I need to focus on building a strong foundation or back bone. Personally, I do not know any Internet Marketer. Honestly, I can not ever claim to have even made an acquaintance or IM friend I can share my struggles with. I would really love to start with a baby step into apprenticing myself to using an simple SEO technique. Edit:I've focused my energy into niche related forums/blogs for now. Honestly, I have made some sales but I am not getting enough traffic to my site. I would like to know a strong and stable method to building a firm foundation for increasing positive traffic to my site. I am selling supplements and the products are listed cheaper than almost all competitors. I will not give up and I will keep pressing forward. Any feedback is accepted whether it is constructive criticism, positve, or negative. I respect all who have considered or have read my thread. God bless all and tread lightly.
