  1. A small update

    We spoke with Austrade this morning and they really didn't want to know about us. They only deal with exporters was their line, and basically told us we should do it in Australia and export it to the world lol. The Chamber of commerce wasn't much better though they did give us a contact with a company that sources this kind of information. We contacted that company only to be told that it would cost between $5,000 and $10,000 AUD to be put in touch with 3 companies that may or may not be able to ...

  4. An experiment in buying traffic to kick-start a new website.

    I created the site 101medicine.org to target keyphrases in the US Health niche. It consists of a WP Page for each of the primary keywords, WP Posts on the same site for longer tail phrases, and a Facebook Page to attract visitors via that social network.

    Since I had neither sites nor existing forum memberships in the niche, I decided to try buying an initial burst of traffic in the hope that some of it would stick. I found a site offering 10,000 UVs over a period of 30 days for US$12, ...

  5. My trials and tribulations of getting an invention to market

    I'm not much of a blogger or writer for that fact, so you will have to excuse my writing, I have been searching high and low for information on how to get an invention to market, and have found none.
