Ok, you mean Adwords as opposed to Adsense.

Adwords is for website owners and business' paying to have their adverts seen on other sites whereas adsense is for the publishers to display other peoples adverts on their site.

First and foremost - dont rush into submitting the site to every directory and listing that is available - many automatic submitting sites will be ignored due to the fact there are so many submitting to the same search engines that you would more than likely be viewed as a spam site and subsequently penalized.

Next step, is there any current site that is relevant to yours that you are able to link into your site? Or is this already done?

Look for all free sources of publicity to include press release sites :
=======================
New freelance business lauched. (just an example strapline - obviously get a good line for your requirements)

- website link-
- Article detail -
- More article detail -
=======================

Obviously the article would have to be well written and informative - maybe highlighting keywords and without doubt providing a link to your site.

You may also consider researching some companies who often outsource and are always looking to outsource and direct emailing them (without spamming them or having too much detail in the email - it will not get read if it has too much detail as people will glance at it and delete ). It should be well structured, succinct and providing some reasons why it will benefit that business. Obviously emailing them from a domain email will expose your site name to them quickly. This may interest some initially and if the content of the email itself is clear and precise, will have some checking out the service.

Obviously SEO for the website itself in a highly competitive industry will be a must to improve serps results and thereby free traffic.

If you are going to take out paid advertising then there must be a revenue stream for you to make it viable to cover your costs and make profit.

I would ensure all free avenues are looked into before considering any advertising costs - although you may start an adwords or equivalent account and get used to the scenario with only a small initial investment. I am not 100% sure how it works as I haven't looked into that area yet in much detail.

Viral Marketing - having anyone who registers informing their friends about it. As you will need both projects and capable programmers to ensure repeat visits by business' lookin to outsource.

Hopefully this is of some help

As we all know Google Adsense is infected with several problems. One of the main problem faced by genuine website owners is the fraudalent clicks.

Sometimes your competitor just click your ads 10-100 times repeatedly. This can exhaust your budget, and can be a lot troublesome.

The best way to tackle this issue is to optimize your website on natural rankings for top level/high paid keywords, and use Adsense for less competitive keywords.

This was you can avoid fraud clicks by almost 80%.
