Long and short, there are no short cuts. Some of the discussed might give marginal benefit, but all will eventually tank. Pick your poison, short term then die, or a bit longer and die, too. No fast way to the top. No short cuts (watch a few Perry Mason in syndication to know what I mean)
As Costner uttered in that movie: "Build it and they will come."
Do that, and benefit will follow. There are no short cuts and spending money in that regard is... spending money. With lint in your pocket.
