    I want to move away
    I've been reading in here all day.. nifty place y'all have here. I arrived due to a search for no name banking.. dinosaur thread came up.. good reading even though for the paltry amounts I wanted to go anon with.. it's not an option.

    Does anyone remember the program Bewitched .. the original one from the 60's? That was my introduction to marketing.. Darin and Larry.. thinking up ploys to sell product - at the time, I remember thinking.. but isn't all this stuff just common sense? (and I was a little kid at the time) Seems we've come a long way from story boards to adsense. (waterfox does not like the word adsense)

    There's so much in these forums to learn and absorb.. I used to know some html and CSS - have been told that I have a good eye for color and presentation but have never knuckled under and made a published site - though I did customize a few forum pages at delphi years ago. I used to write a little.. NSFW kind of writing mostly.. and poison pen letters when things would annoy me.

    What did I learn today? Well.. I'm way behind for Internet Marketing because I do not have a FB or twitter account.. killed off the myspace accounts a few years ago.. no social presence at all - if someone googles my real name.. no results pertain to me *proud of that actually*

    Sure.. I didn't get here with the goal of learning how to make money on the net.. but ya know, every little bit helps.

    I'm not sure if my personality would fit with black hat marketing, unless my target demo was .. oh I dunno.. rich politicians and/or debutantes with low IQ scores.

    So.. I guess I need to hit up the fake name generator and fire up at least one FB and twit account.. become a social butterfly to get started


    So.. I've agreed to the TOS twice now.. to register and to post in this area.. is this a trend that will continue until I have memorized the roolz?

    I've heard of that TV show, but not about that program.

    I want to move away
    so many things to do
    decisions to make
    the mind boggles
    I have questions
    many many questions.

    I guess most of them have to do with order of operations 'What to do first and in what order

    I have a niche selected
    I'd like to stay pretty much white hat to begin
    I want to take my time so I don't make a mistake
    would rather not crash and burn.
    eventually to dip my toes in the darker side

    I would like to set up a web store that also has semi-blogging capabilities
    I have a rough outline of how I'd like it arranged and the areas I'd like to sort things into

    I have a couple (ok 5) available domain names that are available that I'm deciding among. all but one available with the standard ending - all with my niche in the name somewhere

    continued in next post

    I test drove a couple of the website building sites and was not thrilled by any of them

    I have not been able to drag myself to face book to set up an account there (I call it fed book) yet
    I need to go open a separate account for just my online stuff (credit union, not bank) so that I can get verified with pay pal (grumble, whine, moan, complain)

    I plan to not carry inventory and do the drop shipping thing.
    I have not chosen a drop shipper yet though I've seen a few that carry the things I'd like to sell
    I would prefer to drop ship most of my products from within the US, and carry a few higher end specialty items that I know are darn hard to find that I'd order piecemeal from the manufacturer
    Unfortunately, I have not found one of them in the US yet

    I seem to have a character limit on posts
    so next post please

    I think I might like to list on Amazon too
    I know I'd like to use ad sense/click bank and have explored those sites

    I'm just learning about SEO and all the CPA stuff - lots more to read
    I've been to the big commerce site - not quite sure what that's about yet

    My primary email is about to change from Gmail to something much more private so the gmail account could become a dedicated to IM account - advise there please - is gmail so spy and bot ridden that it's not a good idea? Should I open a fresh one for IM?

    Also, I guess I need to look into whatever the IRS is going to want from me - which has always been why I stopped any venture I wanted to get into - taxes

    So anyone have any thoughts on what I should do first? Last? not at all? did I miss anything?

    ty for reading.. oh, and if this is in the wrong place in the forums.. someone please point me to the right place
    :)

    apologies for the lack of punctuation I think all the periods were triggering the mod system too
