I'm Tom Church and I'm new here (and to internet marketing). Essentially, I'd like to ask you, where do I begin?
By this I mean both within this forum (it's so quickly updated!) and for my website.
How I became interested in Marketing
I work in a pub, and just over 2 weeks ago, a regular customer told me he was a marketer. I began questioning him, and became quite interested. Going home that evening, I searched online around the concept of marketing, and was surprised to find a whole lot of jargon and boring text that didn't make the 'subject' interesting nor exciting at all.
And then it hit me (the idea that is): Make a website that makes marketing fun, free and easy for people like me. The next day I bought my domain, made a wordpress website and began developing content.
Nearly 3 weeks later...
With over 40 posts, and a decent looking website, I finally came across Warrior Forums, about 2 days ago now and really don't know where to begin. There's so much here, but I can't make sense of some of it as a beginner. Please could you help me?
I'm not that much of an amateur now...
SEO, affiliate, backlinks, page ranks, bookmarking, directories, pings, RSS feeds, twitter...I know what all this stuff is, and I use them. But what next? It seems I've just skimmed the surface, do you guys have any tools that you use?
Skeptical about buying products...
I'm a bit scared to buy marketing products. There's so many annoying webpages that are really long trying to blag something to me that it just screams, "This is a scam!!" Well, is it?
Thank you so much in advance for helping me out, I'm not sure whether I'm allowed to create a link to my site (forum rules?) but it's "flabble.net"
Hope this post finds you in good spirits,
Your 18 year old English marketer,
