    Hey guys, I have some pretty n00bish questions to ask...
    I have a service based site, the domain is about 9 moths old. I would like to earn some cash without relying on traffic from search engines. I already make a few bucks of it using tweets and fb shares; user scale not massively.
    So, what would be the best way to advertise it, every trick and tip will be highly appreciated.

    My main questions are:
    1. What type of advertising campaign should I start?
    2. Would you recommend a ppc campaign?
    3. What amount of money will get me started?

    I'm looking for a fast converting method, that will allow me to reinvest as soon as possible in future ventures and advertising.
    PayPal is the payment method I work with, so fast reinvestment is easy and highly needed in my case.
    I'm not asking for magical shortcuts, just some opinions and advice from more knowledgeable members.

    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers mates!

    It really depends what your service is. You may want to work on finding out the kind of search queries your customers will type on Google to find a service like yours and launch a PPC campaign.

    Go on fiverr and buy some Adwords vouchers, that should hopefully get you going on a shoe string.

    In terms of advertising, that boils down to what service you offer.

    My services are in a very competitive niche, and ranking even the less popular search queries is not an option. I've tried some AdWords vouchers, but for some matter I can't seem to make the campaigns work without entering some billing information such as my credit card details, and that is something I would rather not do in that advertising platform.
    The kind of PPC campaign I had in mind was something like advertising with MyLikes and other programs in such way. The one advantage I have are the low prices I offer, since I vary from 50 to 100$ for services that usually cost well over 150$.

    1. What type of advertising campaign should you start? facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram marketing

    2. Would you recommend a ppc campaign? NO, because I guess you can't afford to pay 30$ for a conversion(sale)

    3. What amount of money will get me started? Best way to start: social marketing
