    Well, the problem with turnkeys is that 100 other people are trying to promote the same site. So you'll never hit it big with search engines due to the repetitive content.
    I'd say try your luck promoting with myspace.

    I don't know if this type of website would do too well with myspace. It seems that SE traffic might be your best bet. Make sure you write original content, you can submit to article directorys as well.

    Thanks Guys....

    Hmm just go on ebay and search 25000 visitors or 1000 or 5000...you'll get around 40-60 results of different sites willing to sell traffic. AND ITS CHEAP !!!

    I would really recommend AGAINST buying traffic, its all useless traffic. It's untargeted and crap. Plus if its auto-surfers or something like that you can get banned from adsense for stuff like that.

    Haven't you ever read anywhere that buying traffic never works? :P Once those 25k "visitors" come to your site. Your traffic will stop.

    I would have to agree with SeanMcK about purchasing traffic. It is crap.

    Great places to advertise:

    If you are an "expert" go into related forums and post your knowledge with your link in your sig file.

    MySpace is a great place, I use it to market everything from credit cards to mortgages to web design...etc And I get great traffic.

    Also, just because it's a turnkey dosen't mean you can't make it work for you. Most people who purchase turnkeys never do a thing with them.

    Just think outside the box, pay attention to where you yourself surf and your own habits.

    Also think about writing articles and submit them to article directories with all your info in the resource box directing people back to your website. there are great Privat Lable Articles out there you can re-write as your own. If you make enough change to them you can submit these to the directories.

    Just don't give up. So many people quit within a few weeks or months. Sometimes it may take a year or two to really generate qualty traffic.

    Good luck!

    All you need to do is get a myspace account, get lots of friends (In the thousands) and then post bulletins to all of your friends to see, so in other words a link to your website

    Now if getting thousands of friends sounds too long and boring (Which it is) you can either :

    a) Purchase a MySpace account with lots of friends on it, this could get pricey though or,
    b) Get someone to post a bulletin for you from there account. Sometimes you can find offers in the Trade Services forum for this. Sometimes you can pay people to post bulletins for you (Usually very cheap), some people just want a link on your website for a bulletin. I have done this before my website. It worked alright, I would suggest it.

    Just think outside the box for your website, be different then your competitors. Some keywords for you might be - credit card debt, debt, resolve, stuff like that. Type your sites keywords into google and see what the top rank sites are doing then go out and what they are doing BUT better. And soon enough you will start to see tons of great SE traffic.

    I see on your website though, that you are making people pay for these guides.... You are making people IN DEBT, pay for something? Why not offer these guides for free? You will get a lot more traffic and instead of making people pay for these guides you can place adsense ads on your site instead. And you have a pretty high paying keyword there if im not mistaken.

    That is just my thoughts.

    3 Ideas
    1- As above, build quality content. This is like buying an asset, but it need not cost you anything. The worst that happens is you dismantle the site and sell the content.
    2- Invest in an SEO specialist's services (like myself ). When you get organic traffic from the engines, you usually have slightly better than average conversions, but more importantly, this is another asset. When/if you resell your site, you can fetch a higher price. In effect, good SEO pays for itself.
    3- My blog, Site Flip, has a newsletter. I'm looking to have sellers with a good deal suggest their site for mention to subscribers. If/when you sell, let me know, and I'll discuss it in the newsletter.
    4- Find something worth making people come to the site for repeatedly. An example would be holding a contest, developing a tool, etc. Google's a tool that finds information, which tells you something about the success to be found with this approach...

    If you're interested in an SEO proposal, you can PM me. I'd suggest you start by reading my blog, so you can get some free tips. I have links to it in my signature.

    In other words, spam. Great advice. Hope the karma comes back to bite you.

    Do you know how many people use myspace to promote? I don't see the reason for you to attack me like that. Sending out a bulletin once every few weeks is not spam IMHO. Sorry to see you seem to have a temper.

    Do you know how many people spam? There's more spam in the mail system than legitimate mail. Just because other people do it on MySpace doesn't make it any less like spam. Nobody joins MySpace to get ads thrown at them all day through the bulletin system.

    Sending people to spam MySpace is not valid advice for promoting a credit repair site.

    How can that be spamming if these folks opt-in to be on his friend list? If they don't like what they recieve from him, they have the free will to delete him as friend.

    Just my 2 cents....

    Well sending a bulletin to your friends doesn't send anything to there email (I dont think at least), and exactly if they dont want a bulletin just get off there friend list. Maybe some enjoy it because they find out about new websites.

    I have to agree that it may not be the best audience to target with a credit card debt site, not too many teens I know are in debt with credit cards...

    Oh well, everyone has there own opinion.
