I've officially started my own web company about 3 years ago, and even though it gets me a nice little extra money, I would love to make it my fulltime job.
When it comes to marketing though, I feel like a complete idiot. I'm very interested in it, have read a lot and learned a lot, but I can't really make it work. I have a few customers a year and business is growing slowly as I make more connections, but after 3 years I'm nowhere near where I expected to be.
I'm not eager to throw a lot of money on different channels to see which one works. I do have money to invest, but I don't know how to invest it.
I have read so much on these forums, bought an info product here which totally didn't work for me. I have spent about $100 on Adwords, but didn't get much response from that (and not a single sale).
The only thing that works for me right now are referrals, because my customers are very happy. But that alone is going way too slow.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
