c) Once you have your website URL indexed, you must establish relevance for a number of phrases. To read a more in depth treatment of this subject, see my article, here: http://www.newbie-business-guide.com/keywords_and_their_costs_to_newbies.htm
d) Write articles and distribute them to all online publishers that will accept them. The good thing about distributing articles is that you'll get to reach so many more people that will have an interest on your subject matter. Make sure you provide a link back to your website in resource box.
e) Explore all other ways of promoting your website. There are traffic exchange programs, business cards, word of mouth, Google AdWords, ad networks, linking to relevant websites, etc, etc I would advise to stay away from FFA (Free for All) and Safelist advertising. If you use them, do it only to get contacts, not necessarily to sell. Setup special email accounts for avalanche of incoming emails.
f) Schedule your time and do each promotion activity on a weekly basis. You must sleep, eat, think, dream, and live to promote your website. Cary your business cards with you and pass them around. Develop contacts and relationships and nurture them, join any online or offline groups that are related to your website.
If you are realistic and keep at it, you'll see results. It won't happen overnight, it’s more like a steady trickle that will grow. From everything I've read it appears most websites take about 9 months to a year to start producing an income. The one constant will be your dedication and commitment to make it happen. Keep plucking at it and Internet horn of plenty will deliver.
