    Hey, Guys Hope You are having a nice evening.
    I woke up to 2 emails sent from the contact form from my website.
    To claify I started with a website in febuary about a natural oil that only gets made in the country im from.
    This product is available on amazon and has nice CPC.
    So I set out to make an authority website in this niche :) I have about 400 uv's a day coming from various keywords.
    Just having amazon, adsense and a email list affiliate widget as main monetization methods.
    Long story short im just a dude that learned the basics on BHW and doesnt realy know much about the niche or do I care :p


    I will leave some stuff out like name keywords and stuff but here are the 2 messages

    Great coincidence both gave their numbers. Can be legit as well. Be careful with the 2nd person though if he ask you to ship something to him.

    I think its better to do some research and then take some action with them. But its your choice at the end of the day.

    They seem legit....but who knows....if they want to pay you make sure you get upfront first...after all you are delivering the product!

    OK! Magazine, if it is the one in the states, is a big celebrity kind of gossip magazine. Kind of like People in a way, but not quite as good or big. If they have a good offer and if that person is legit, it could probably make you some good money.

    Just remember you have the power here, not them.
    Don't let the temptation of a "large" sum let you give this site up, as it's clearly worth a LOT to them.

    Try to work a deal out where you list their company as the best provider around for the oil + ad space in general and contact information for them, and then take their offer, cut it in half, and make it monthly fee. If they stop paying, take down the ads and information and get another one.

    Check if these mails have came from the original people or just fake. If that's real then go ahead and make a deal.

    I understand that people think maybe the wholesale message is maybe scammy!
    But The Ok!magazine I thnik is real! its was send from an @express.co.uk
    So I think its the UK version! I have contacted a website selling the product in the UK>
    I have tried to offer them a so called namedrop! Where I say I Buy all me stuff from that website?
    I dont know if this is the best way to monetize
    I mean Wouldnt the backlinks alone be worth the 30 min interview time :)
