Neil Patel (neilpatel.com) is amazing. His tutorial on how to get more free traffic- and anything else he’s ever written on – is a must-read not only for professional internet marketers and web designers, but for anyone who has a blog or who dreams about the day when he or she can actually look to the internet as a source of livelihood.
