I have about $20,000 to invest. How would you recommend I split up the investment (between how many sites)?
What kind of sites would be easiest for me to maintain without much experience in Internet Marketing?
What areas should I focus on learning in the beginning?
What set of tools (SEMrush, SEOmoz, Market Samurai, etc.) would you recommend for me as a beginner (would like to balance cost with value in the beginning, when I seeing profits I can expand my toolbox)?
Bonus question, how do you see the future of internet marketing as a way to make a good living? The entire reason I wanted to get into this is because I felt the whole industry would be a safe bet for consistent growth, and learning the ins and outs (with dedication) would be one of the best ways to leverage my time to make money. I want to own my time on Earth and use it to pursue a myriad of interests, not just internet marketing.
Take a stab at any question you want or none at all and just say hello. If any of you would be interested in a more personal relationship I would love to have a mentor. Let me know. Thanks in advance.
