I was thinking this morning how I would have done things different.
The first 2 years were brutal.
So what's the one thing I would have changed?
If I could do it all again, I would have SOLD something.
In other words, I wouldn't have spent so much time and money on affiliate marketing or Adsense or content production. I based so much of my early efforts on "word count" and, of course, I got nailed in the Panda and Penguin algo changes.
Instead, I wish I would have tried to sell something (anything): Info Products or physical products or even my own services. You develop a much different feel for marketing when you are actually trying to move REAL product and build up a REAL customer list.
Anyone else want to share? I'm real curious - thanks!
