So, Whos involved with the world of Online Marketing and all that junk?
I would love for some advice and hearing what anyone thinks about this kinda stuff.. My plan, I think I am going to make 3-4 sites with content, and have adsense on all of them/maybe rent out ad space, maybe have one forum or something too.. Just basically, small things on the side that I can do to see if it ever turns into something decent.. (trying to quit gaming, so gotta fill up some time!)
Im not saying I would ever attempt to make a forum as large as even this one, but who knows, if I could get 100-ish active members on a forum of some topic (probably not guitar, its been done too much), then who knows, as long as my ads profit over hosting costs..
Im just interested in learning more about everything.. if anyone has some experience/knows anything about this kinda stuff.
My online marketing experience deals mainly with Google AdWords (which can cost a lot of money) and company blogging (which is not really applicable to what you're looking for)... so I'm not sure if it'd help you much.
If you're creating a forum though, you're going to want to familiarize yourself with the various forum software systems. And keep in mind SS.org and MG.org don't make Chris any money; the ads there are there to offset the cost of the vBulletin software and hosting. It's quite difficult to create a small startup site that is actually profitable solely via advertising.
