Hey there, my name is Patrick. Just recently turned 18 and attending university in Texas for computer science and art. Been web designing since I was in the 5th grade, when I created this terrible comic website that I used to update daily with comics taken from other comic websites, so it was pretty pointless. Guess the name? "Awesome Comics!" Oh how creative. Anyway, I'm now a pretty advanced programmer, so maybe I can write you guys a script one day to do something useful. =P Currently, I'm involved in white hat companies with gray hat marketing strategies. I mostly came here to learn about gray hat tools, so I know nothing of CPAs or your other acronyms and marketing words, but hopefully I will learn more. I constantly make new websites and start new "businesses." I have a web design business, an online texting business, manager/admin of a New York-based eCommerce site, and shortly I will have a fashion website going up against one major competitor. Technically I guess I have 3 decent competitors, but 2 of them I'm sure I can blow right out of the water over time. If anyone actually reads this introduction, what are some ways I can do pre-launch marketing for my new website? I just have an informational "construction" page with the option to sign-up for site launch info. Should I even be marketing for a website that hasn't launched? So far, I've only been using Tweet Attacks to post to Twitter in reply to tweets with a keyword. It has created a growing following (I do about 800 tweets per blast, about 2-3 blasts per week) with retweets, replies, sign-ups, and some business interest. Glad to be here. =] Seems like a great, supportive place.
