    Dear All,

    This is my first post on BHW, and I hope to stay here for a long time.

    I´m now 18y.o. with a lot of experience in making money out of the gaming industry, for me this is a very intresting market since many children as well adults have a lot of money to spend, especially children.

    Before I go on with my business idea, I will tell you about my earlier project.
    I´ve created a Runescape Gold Shop, in the netherlands. not a physical shop ofcourse but virtual.
    With some great marketing on google and advertising/spamming in games i reached more than 1200 clients (children) within 4 months which gained me more than 5000euro´s a lot of money for a 17 y.o isn´t it? I had a easy website where it was quite easy to order money and recieve it directly in the game. i took me another 2 months to make the website finished i added guides on how they could pay which methods, well there were about 5 (paypal, moneybookers, bank transfer, phone, sms and so on) which was intresting for people ofcourse, the more options the better) next to that i contacted some chinese gold sellers which packed out really well.. the result of this was that they could deliver the game gold/money directly to my customers, and so they did. i did monthly or 2-weekly pay them about 400$ while i earned about %400 more! intresting!

    My business idea is to do exactly the same, however now i do not only want to reach the netherlands, I want to reach the WORLD, but now with another game Diablo 3, which is one of the best selling games.
    I already made the connections where I can get the gold from which gives me again the ability to earn about 200-500% on the COGS.

    However I´m looking for some people that could help me and that I definitly will pay out.

    What I/we need:
    Professional website builder(s)
    Article Writers (people with knowledge about diablo 3)
    Advertisers (people with knowledge how to catch the customers from example google adwords or...)
    and many more people is what I need before I can start with this business.

    I can guarantee myself and you that we will make a lot of money, however it will atleast take 1-2 months to set up this, next to that I think this is the right time to start with this business since the game just released.
    After these months we will make atleast 1500$ per month.

    Looking for investors or persons with knowledge that might be intrested in helping me.

    Please keep in mind that im only 18 and could have made some mistakes somewhere, I would appreciate to hear them.


    Thanks in advance,

    Mart

    Have you even read up about diablo 3? There is going to be an ingame real money auction house for both items and gold. Why would someone want to use a third party and risk their money and account?

    I made over 20K (probably a fair bit more than that, never counted) selling WoW Gold, only on a few different servers. Good old days. Good luck with your venture! :)

    This is something small, trust me, there are already many chinese seller selling it for cheap prices. they try every method and can guaranteed me that the could will be delivered without a problem.

    As I mentioned i also had a runescape gold shop, runescape is also banning players that buys gold. they never caught one of my client since the method to transfer the gold was stealth.

    Thanks for your suggestion!
    I have noticed it and will still do research on this.

    Yeah but there is nowhere where you can buy gold outright. You can only hope someone will buy you item over the 100's of others being auctioned.

    OP i'm interested in your project...

    The RMAH is not implemented yet and when it is you will be able to buy gold outright.

    I'm already earning quite good in the D3 Niche with Videos and Blogs, if you are interested in some JV or something
    add me on skype: flowdang. As we might not have the same goals we maybe can twist things up.

    Cheers

    I'm a web designer from belgium, so i think we could have a good communication etc. but i'm bit worried about the RMAH coming soon. How will you compete with that? You can pm me with details if you want.

    I don't think it will work. Blizzard got fed up with gold sellers in WoW because they weren't making anything off of it. In Diablo 3 they seek to change that, starting with the real money auction house. They will introduce methods of buying gold straight from them soon enough. They already did it in WoW by allowing you to buy pets/mounts that you could just sell on the auction house, and yes, they sold 100% of the time. Good luck, but I wouldn't count on it lasting very long, if at all.

    You can hit buyout (BIN) and get the gold right away. Much safer and easier than a 3rd party

    indeed, unfortunately, you could be right with this. . the auction house gives persons/clients the ability to transfer their money to PayPal for 15% commission, since this is not the case for my business it still could be interesting enough and cheaper than the prices of the auction house. this is a process of weeks and is something that i will analyze before starting with this business, depending whether it is reliable or not.

    Thanks for this reply btw. :)

    Thanks for all reply's and PM's so far, I will contact you within a month (depending is the RMAH) as you can see in my post above this one.

    The outcome of this is important before we can see whether it is reliable and realistic enough to go on with.

    Thanks so far, i will definitely come with new and other ideas I feel home here :p

    If I'm not mistaken, this real money auction house thing seems like an alright way to make extra cash in itself, no? Play an incredibly fun game, do some farming, make a few bucks off of it, bot it up, run an account 24/7, sell everything you gain, I know I'll be taking a more in-depth look into it.

    As a matter of fact, just bought the game. Time to hoard before the RMAH comes out. :p

    It looks like this niche is taken. Try Bing "buy diablo 3 gold"

    Yes, there are many competitors, however, they are so unprofessional and all chinese, they dont know how to do the business professional and all their websites look like shit.

    As mentioned i´ve dealt with this before, we can easily steal some customers and gain new one.
