    so obviously there are many ways of promoting a website
    I have some plans and ideas already that im sure will be mentioned.

    But I would like to hear what you would do with this kind of budget?

    also this project has to do with real estate mainly local customers.

    to help with answers I have a web site already though it needs some work on it but the budget is mainly for marketing outsourcing or any other needs

    no this is about promotion this is the budget per month for that though building websites etc will probably be involved in marketing

    getting to the top of the search engines is one thing - converting visitors once you get them on your site is another...

    getting to the top of the serps with a shitty website and no call to action is simply a waste of money, spend at least sometime developing your site else you will be losing potential customers/$$$ hand over fist...

    Spend money with the design of your website and then learn SEO on net, there is plenty of info out there, and spend some money on backlinking your site as well, but if you know how to SEO effectively then that is pretty much 80% of your whole project about this site of yours...

    Run a highly targetted PPC campaign and then determine how to proceed according to the ROI?

    You can ask questions all day on this forum, but all the answers lead to the simple fact that you need to let the market tell you what needs to be improved.

    There are solid promotion methods that are free as well, just take some time.

    Seriously, unless you are building some sort of specialized website that has ecommerce carts and all that, there are a ton of great wordpress or blogger themes out there that can get you a solid professional looking but basic webpage in a few hours.

    Spend the money buying some related software (a social book marking tool, blog commenter) and some articles.

    Thanks all this confirms what im doing already.

    The website is made but needs more calls to action which was my first priority along with making it easier to navigate and work on seo.

    Next plan is to build keyword rich domains that link to the website.

    Then I will build blogs post rss feeds along with bookmarking and social media etc.

    thanks for your replys

    I plan on spending most the money on outsourcing.

    Since I already have an ars*enal of programs to use.

    lol it kept blocking the word ars*enal
