Personally, I did paid then did more free stuff over the years.

Just wondering where everyone got their beginnings from.

    I started with solo ads. But right now love to qualify traffic before they get on my list. The leads doesn't come in fast, but the openrate is much higher. I feel more connected with my list right now.

    I started with free traffic. It's much easier because I was already a member of the high traffic sites I pulled traffic from. It's all about knowing your audience and presenting them with the content and landing pages that makes sense to them.

      Out of curiosity, what high traffic sites were you pulling traffic from?

      Thanks in advance..

    I started with free traffic back before Google dominated the Web and high rankings were as easy as writing excellent content.

    inexpensive paid traffic is always the best...well second best, 1st best is through fusion or jv marketing.

    I started with free traffic, but at my time it was easy to get to the top with a nice article at EZA. Then I tried paid traffic. It was a disaster...

    Started free. Diddling with paid now and seeing great results. The trick is matching message to the right audience, but the match is made in the medium.

    I 100% agree, that is why I started using free after a lot of success with paid.

    Started out with both over 10 years ago. Those were the days...paid traffic (PPC) was a much better buy back then.

    I have recently started my own blog, two weeks ago now.
    I don't have any money to spend on advertising so I'm using free methods right now.
    Currently using forum marketing and blog commenting while trying to build a social media following.

    I started with paid advertising. PPC... it was the only thing that i knew how to do, and my website was ugly. My product was a package of 12 ebooks, and the bonus to this package was 36 more ebooks. It was a disaster. Good think i had a job back then.
