    I would run them all through a system to each build and promote a single site and break it down into modules, something like this:

    1) Site design, setup and maintenance
    2) Content creation - writing, videos, etc.
    3) SEO - research, on page and site structure
    4) Backlinks
    5) Monetization
    6) Social promotion

    Once they were finished I would see which strengths each had. I would put appropriate candidates in charge of specific modules and get the entire group to start cranking stuff out from a list I made. The smartest/best one or two of them would continue to build complete sites from the ground up and help me go over and manage the work of the rest.

    This would be a good start.

    Step 1: Go to downloads section.
    Step 2: Download 10 random ebooks
    Step 3: Tell your staff to read and memorize them all
    Step 4: Go to make money section.
    Step 5: Scrape 10 random threads
    Step 6: Tell your staff to read and memorize them all
    Step 7: LET THEM LOSE!
    Step 8: Collect the rewards!

    Of course you could have all of them article writing... Each article takes max 30 minutes... Articles cost $5... 10*5 = $50/hour! If they don't eat or sleep that is $1200/day Dude you are rich!

    @spsfinest - Ok cool- Creating an product for Click Bank, is possibility- not sure about the coding though might be a little outside of their abilities.Ill have to dig into it.

    @Crixus : I agree- This the exact direction Im going. I need to find a good simple to follow but effective model for them to follow which is scalable into a production line once the strengths of each has been found.

    @ Scripteen : I agree promotion all the way! Ive got Senuke but I cant get the damn links indexed- and Im considering getting Xrumer and Blacklinks Pro to help out. 9 Staff on Senuke+ Xrumer+ Blacklinks pro. Thats alot of links! But completely useless right now to me since I havent go the indexing thing sorted out. I will be happy once I get the whole indexing thing sorted.

    @mytony : I agree there is a BUNCH of products and sites to be made- the issue Im having it getting all the sites decent traffic- Ive Senuke with has been doing not much for me to be honest over the past 5 months. I need to sort out an effective method to pull decent traffic which converts (non paid). I would say of the top of my head, I need to work a little more on the market research and unique content creation areas to make it work.

    @chockomonkey : LOL- yeh that would be dude heaven, but I wont be doing any of that stuff.

    With ten staff I would start by evaluating their strength and weaknesses, for instance:

    • good writers, who are knowledgeable about specific topics
    • SEO experience
    • link building experience
    • social media experience
    • building web applications / applications

    I'd take the best two-three writers to write content for sites, I'd take the other eight to do SEO (train them if needed). If you got a programmer among them write a concept of a program or web service that you can offer on a site, either free for linkbait, or paid for direct cash.

    I'd probably do a small "how-to-build-links-the-right-way" seminar to teach everyone link building basics, including reporting and finding sources / signatures.

    You could create lots of sites and links with 10 employees.
