Ok, so I'm very familiar with IM, but I'm fairly new at actually doing anything with it. Right now, I'm working on a blog, and my main goal is to build up a mailing list so I can send out ClickBank products, as well as monetize my site in other ways if possible. I am writing the content by myself (I've done freelance writing for 8 years), I've got an AWeber account set-up, but my main problem has always been getting traffic. I know that I can produce good content and make a decent WordPress blog, but I just can't ever figure out how to effectively drive traffic to the site. I'm willing to spend money, and I plan on buying $25 of AdWords so I get a $100 voucher and using it all towards this site. The niche I'm working with is Golf. - Would using AdWords to link directly to my mailing list sign-up (within my website) be effective or even allowed? - Are there any good alternatives besides AdWords? - What are some other methods to drive traffic? (I know about backlinks and ad networks, but I can never get them to do me any good) Thanks guys for any help!
