    Hey Hans, welcome to BHW. (Where's Franz been by the way???)

    The selling websites thing has been beaten to death. If I had your skills I would put together graphic packs and sell them to other marketers. Package of like 100+ simple graphics with files so we can edit them for like $5-$10/pack. Goofy arrows/buy now buttons are ok but graphics of men/women/animal packs are cool. Just use your imagination, we all need images with rights to them for our sites. Professional/sexy/vectors/average joe's are cool. Then you have a list of buyers who you can email when you put new packs together.

    Also you should continue niche site building as affiliate. Definitely have a link in easily visible spot on your sites with link to your work since you will get fellow marketers (competitors in that niche) on your site but may like your cool graphics and be customer. Put together weight loss/dating site to sell affiliate products. Make a graphics pack for that niche, use them first on your site then sell the pack to other marketers. Even if site doesn't make a dime, you still have made $ from the graphics alone. You have a cool skill man, which gives you 2 chances to make money from your work.

    you can sell your simple graphics...logos, banners, etc on fiverr.com to get started quickly. You can start a graphic logo service or website and advertise and post here.

    :) good luck

    Think about what you want to promote. You can start by browsing ClickBank, JVZoo, CJ, etc to get some a sense of market and kind of products you want to make. Then you can start building websites and promote those products. Start building authority sites with great content and building your links gradually. I would say you should get page 1 or page 2 ranking after 5-7 months or shorter if you do SEO properly. Then, you can start building lists and do email marketing.

    With your skills, I can imagine you can make some very beautiful and authority look websites without outsourcing it and yes, put your own image pack on it will be a good way to make second stream of income as well.

    So, I suggest you to start look at products you want to promote at Clickbank first and come back here with more questions :)

    Hey Hans welcome aboard buddy!
    Well my Friend you've been given some great suggestions in
    the above post and since this is really not my area of expertise
    I will remain silent...Well kinda -lol
    Guess it couldn't hurt to maybe design a few Banners
    or Avatars for a few of the members here to kinda show
    off your stuff.
    Yeah I know you could just link to some stuff you've already
    done but this way you can show your ability to take a raw canvas
    and suggestions or ideas from the client then proceed
    to work your magic and make it happen!
    Plus the additional Buzz from doing this wont hurt either.
    Just a suggestion.

    A good graphic designer will never go on there. Fiverr is a place for cheap, ready made graphics. Its good only for so called 'designers' or 'experts', thats why its bullshit.

    Also there is another website called Elance. You can get some good contracts from there for wordpress website development and graphic design. If you have good high quality work, you can get some very good repeat and permanent customers to always keep you busy and $$ rolling in.

    I wish you best of luck and total success with your online efforts!
