Words of Wisdom

The first thing Tanner did was simply write. He opened up a blank page and began to jot down all sorts of ideas for articles. He wasn’t concerned with all the details at first; he simply wanted to have a substantial amount of content that he could use to fill out the site when he launched it. Start with the essentials!

Fun Fact

Tanner hasn't spent any money whatsoever on marketing his site, Cruzely. He devoted all his promotional efforts toward getting ranked in Google and other search engines for terms and phrases that new cruisers searched for. Since he’d been a new cruiser, and had a lot of questions he couldn’t find answers for, he knew he had the right qualifications.
