    Hello, I'm a new customer of the Profit Lance system. I'm come here to see if I can get any advice on how to start out.

    Basically, I don't want to spend any money until I get my investment back and a little bit more. Kind of hard to make money without spending a little right? So basically some of the free techniques of getting money without spending money is to basically create a blog. Find a niche and get articles from like goarticles or ezinearticles. Then fill it with adsense or put in one of your already made affiliate website.

    Now my question is, will the traffic generating techniques be enough to actually get people to click on the adsense or the affiliate link? The techniques are: pinging, bookmarking, sending site to a search engine directory, and writing a press release (classified add costs money). Also, won't the people reading the articles posted on the blog, click on the links that are in the article? As mentioned in the course, you also get traffic from witting articles. (I'm bad at writing articles). So, won't people not click on the adsense and affiliate links because you're not allowed to edit articles that have something along the lines of a affiliate link in their articles?

    Any help can be appreciated, thank you. [​IMG]

    Hi Utico,

    You make a site and use the traffic generating ideas you've listed. You've got that part right and you won't have to spend money if you are using a hosted site.

    Whether or not anyone clicks on your Adsense or affiliate links depends upon the quality of your writing. It also depends upon visitor trust and the perceived value of your site.

    If you were a visitor, would you click the ads or the affiliate links?

    Hey Utico,
    When you write, just write as you would talk - when I first started writing articles, I would get this visual of writing in school - and maybe this didn't happen for everybody else, but I would get brain freeze and couldn't, for the life of me, think of what to write.

    Now I am a very talkative person - or can be [​IMG] - so talking about something I love is not a problem.... when I realized that, it was way easier to just put it on paper.

    And believe me, typing will come easier as you go along,too. You may be able to type a 1000 words a minute but I still can't do that - although I have graduated from one finger pounding, at least - lol

    I suspect you are correct. If you are filling your site with other people's content and links, you are not likely to make much that way.

    1. It will be hard to get traffic to your site because it will be considered duplicate content by the engines.
    2. What traffic you do get will be sidetracked by other people's links.

    You are much better writing your own content for the majority of your site so that you can insert your own affiliate links in the appropriate places.

    It gets easier with practice, I promise. [​IMG]

    Sounds good. Thank you.
