  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive. Was thinking about starting using analytics. Do you recommend it?
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    1. Hello Jan Zac I really appreciate your comment. For my blog I don’t use paid promotion, in my blog I use free as a starter and write good content. what work for me are following others blog related to my niche and comment on their post, I tweeet everyday using buffer to queue my post, i write guest post but for you as a starter i don’t really recommend you to use paid promotion for now, invest first in content and design and follow good and honest bloggers . That all. thank you for stopping by.
