    I was speaking to a facebook US fan's supplier on Skype.

    Nice to see the newbies making half a million dollars annually selling facebook fans alone, without a website etc. :congrats:

    Who know's how much he would earn with a website & some SEO?

    Okay, so 500k is the revenue, right? What's the net profit?

    Probably still fairly high, since you can get Facebook likes dirt cheap on Fiverr and other places.

    I've thought about that. There has to be a way to capitalize on an arbitrage system. The trial and error would drive me crazy though.

    So... Is everyone now going to jump on the "Likes" bandwagon and open a BST?

    Yeah,

    He's the source supplier, apparently.

    So it would be almost 100% profit?

    Market is already getting over saturated.

    Selling likes isn't new to me, but making 500,000 is.

    I hope you let him know you were going to post a private Skype conversation on a public marketing forum with his personal details (BHW username etc.) in there before you posted this?

    This is exactly what I was thinking. I wouldnt necessarily want my private convo about earnings being posted up publicly....

    That's some nice income! ;)
    @TheMatrix personally speaking I have my costs are:
    - 5 Full time employees
    - 8 Dedicated Servers
    - Office rent, taxes etc.

    They come to around 27-35% of my total income, which makes 60%+ of my revenue net profit.

    I'm speaking to him on Skype. He's seen the thread and it's all good but I'll take it down as it's not helping anyone.

    this is highly possible since i know guys selling likes in classifieds sites making 1K a day . you can make it a whole business empire. generally even fake likes sell.

    Also website is there, in his signature. I believe that bigger exposure on twitter (wait n reply) would make at least 10-15 % increase of income.

    Sorry, i don t want make trouble but i have question.
    Well lets say i' m making 500 000 a year by selling likes.

    My price?
    50 dollars for 1000 likes, then:
    500 000: 50= 10 000 sells, then 10 000 000 likes total this year.

    How many likes per day?
    10 000 000 / 365 = 27397 likes per day, 1141 likes per hour. 19 likes per minute if i don t sleep during 365 days and i m working 24/7.

    Can you explain me how is possible ?
