    I've done a few of those things, such as posting on forums. One time, posting on one forum paid off because its administrator began contributing to my forum and later helped me with my website. That happened because I'd been posting there for awhile. To make anything good happen, you have to give it some time.

    Cheers Arnel.

    A question for you. I'd like to promote Instant workouts but would like to have a conversation about it. If you can talk on any messanger as I have a few ideas and want to discuss them with you.

    Though fitness is not exactly my niche but since I've been a subscriber to you (still am) and have acheieved great results from your workouts, I believe in the product so it is something I'd like to do.

    btw If you search maddi110 on youtube I had 3 videos uploaded of my body transoformation and thats when I wasn't involved in Internet Marketing but still promoted your blog, videos and website on my videos because I was a happy subscribers, So i'd like to give back something (and ofcourse earn money in the process) so If you can chat on any messanger msn or skype or whatever that'll be great.

    Thanks

    Thank you for the list. Having a list is a great way to keep myself in check to all of the things I have or have not done.

    Thanks for the list. BTW, I think your suggestion #50 is my favorite! I have not tried it yet, but I have to stop procrastinating because it is probably keeping me from bigger and better things.

    Great list..I agree its an awesome checklist. I am sure even those of us who have been doing it for a while can identify SEVERAL on the list that we havent done on some of our sites.

    By the way, the one main way to get traffic is hard to come by, and is not listed...

    ***Have Simon Cowell wear a black T-shirt with your website displayed in Gold during an episode of American Idol. ***

    Best of continued success to everyone!
