If you're thinking that all that sounds like a lot of work, you're absolutely right! Not only do we advocate doing a lot of work, we also advocate doing very difficult work.
This could be a problem. Maybe you got into online marketing because you wanted to do less work and because you were hoping for some hands-off, passive ways to make a living...
If that's the case, I've got some bad news and some good news for you.

How and where can you get the best content for your websites? Content that is at the same time high quality, well researched and relevant, but also doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg? These were the questions I was seeking to answer since posting the first part of the Throw Money At It project.

Read on to see how I’ll kick this project off and why.
