I’m personally very keen on paid marketing, because paid marketing is the fastest, easiest and most fun way to get results… whatever you do.
I wrote part one last year and also told you how to get traffic out of Facebook so cheap you wouldn’t believe it.
By the way, just head to the paid marketing section (once you are done with this article) and read, I’ve written quite a few articles that will turn you into a paid marketing genius in a day… you know I’m not exaggerating.
Anyway, today I wanted to take the game to a new level and setup a complete paid marketing sources list for you (cause the first article was kinda centered around those sources I use exclusively).
You might think all I have is built with paid marketing, but it really is not… which ironically is the reason I love paid marketing and recommend it to everybody.
When I started online I had nothing, had just lost my offline company and had about 5 bucks on me.
How could I run paid ads with 5 bucks?
I couldn’t, which is why I had to master the only free and possibly the most awesome marketing approach (it’s slow though) – blogging.
I took me two years to build this blog and so much work I do not want you to go through this at all.
Yeah, it was worth it, as I now have an amazing asset, yet I could have built it way faster if I had money for paid marketing, if I had money to use the ultimate paid marketing sources list.
