Let's face it, there are only so many hours in the day. With 3 other business (not online), most of my IM stuff is done between 10pm and 3am.
In my sleep deprived state I ran across a couple of traffic generating companies that claim to do article marketing, forum marketing, SEO, social bookmarking etc etc. for you for a prettly low cost.
I'm looking at troublefreetraffic and another one (name escapes me right now). Has anyone used these types of services? For $200-$500/month, the time savings alone would be worth it. I haven't yet found a quick way to do all of the tasks needed to begin ranking highly on the search engines...takes a lot of time. Outsourcing seems like the way to go.
I've used elance in the past to create articles and to outsource pieces of the puzzle but never tried outsourcing multiple tasks to one company.
I'm also considering starting a business offering online SEO to certain niches in my area...business owners that have a need to rank higher on search engines but don't have a clue how to or the time to do it themselves. I'm looking at a program by Mary Guidelis and a program called Local Business Money Machine to get started offline.
Any input would be appreciated.
