I'm a 20 year old full time electrical engineering student looking to get into article marketing/internet marketing in order to bring in some money while I'm on the computer at night. I'm looking forward to put my time into this, and I'm ready to make some extra cash for basic needs while dorming at school.
I've recently been using a Newbie step by step guide, and one of the steps in the guide ask for me to expand my keywords with Micro Niche Finder, Word Tracker, or Market Samurai. Now, I am trying to stay as close to no initial investment as possible; I'm again, a college student, and like most college students, very very broke. Even $40 is a lot for me to invest into something that I haven't even seen to work yet, let alone $100 or $50 a month for the above programs.
Are there any alternatives to this? I have no problem investing back into this on my next campaign with my profits from my first campaign. This being my first, I want to try to pull this off with spending the least amount possible. I'm not too worried about extra work, as long as I know it will be effective.
If anyone could give me some suggestions I would really appreciate it. I'm not even quite sure what these programs even do, so I couldn't even think of stuff to search up.
