One tip I could give is.. you don't need to pay for backlinks. You can visit blogs in your niche and leave them valid comments. This is a good way to build links to your site. It also provides added traffic to your site from other visitors of the blogs you visited. Do make your comment valid and interesting so that others will also take interest in you. Spamming other blogs does not help you so stop before you even think of it.

Another way of building links is to partner with some colleagues and exchange comments on one another's blogs. The rest of the tips are helpful pointers and reminders on what to expect when you run an Internet-based business.
