I need some inspiration, creative ideas on how to market my website, with out having to spend months learning SEO/Marketing. I also don't have much money to spend on it.
We all can create awesome websites... but how many of us can actually get people to use it?
I've worked on websites with hundreds of thousands of users, but they were never my personal projects.
I have a confession.
Over the last 27 years of developing websites, I've only ever had one time where one of my project had more than a 1000 users. To be even more honest, I've not had any traffic on a lot of them and eventually let them fade away.
It may sounds like I'm clueless in the marketing arena, which would a little true, but most of it is that I hate doing what I fear or feel I'm not great at.
It's really two part that I've come to realize why, with the first being that I LOVE creating websites but I don't enjoy content creation (you think i would being a creator) nor generating traffic.
The second being that I'm a little fearful of the amount of stress and work it would take if I did have a successful website of my own.
It's totally different if you're working for someone else, I feel confident and it's no big deal because I work hard and maintain great quality code and processes. It's my all day every day thing, so I carry little to no fear.
But part time, side gigs? Ya they don't really allow room for error due to the lack of time allowed for them.
What should I do? Just pay for someone? I can't really afford much. I wouldn't be working multiple jobs if I could. So what does that leave me?
This is my first attempt, writing this article/confession in hope to find someone or multiple people that can be kind enough to guide me.
I am asking for help. I need to know what I can do. I could use something to motivate myself around marketing.
I am willing to face my fears, I just need some guidance.
Will you help me?
p.s. I know how to google, I know how to find tutorials. I can learn. I just don't have the bandwidth to become great at all of it. I need the solutions that I CAN do with me being solo.
