i agree.with 'RobAde'. i think SEO work, depending on if you learn some tactics yourself or outsource, the benefits are truly massive. It's a relatively booming field and not enough people know it's power. once it's setup, it still works for you. pay per click can get pricey...especially if you have a lot of "window shoppers". like 'onlinedownloads' said seobook.com is a great source as well as www.bluehatseo.com for some more technical aspects. Definitely check them out as i'm not going to shamelessly plug my own SEO company.

If you can begin a blog about the success stories of it, you may pull in some other business too!

Hey Bryan, researching with the SEO books is a great idea. But just a suggestion before making any purchases, there are alot of free online tools that you can use to kinda get more used to idea of a SEO campaign. Here are just a few suggestions:

Download the Alexa Toolbar. - i think it's called sparky now though, anyway, this tool will give you an overall rating of your website at the bottom right corner when you are on your homepage. just to give you an idea of your starting point.
Get the GOOGLE page rank application - just another way to see where your website is at.
Go to www.webconfs.com - There are SEO tools here that are completely free to use that will analyze your website for you, and tell you what you need to do.

these are just a few things that you can do to not only monitor the status of your website but also give you a better understanding of SEO optimization, you wouldn't want to purchase anything without being able to understand what you are doing to begin with. There are a lot of other helpful tools that you can easily find just by doing a little digging. I hope this helps.

-J
