    Your connection is no different than someone outsourcing or placing an ad in China.
    This isn't 1992 where we can't find someone in China through the interwebs.
    Sorry.

    If he has no marketable skill, not much. It just the same as him saying "I know a guy in the US" - so what?

    You can talk to the reps from factories directly if you want to go that route.

    For the guys saying shady/illegal stuff.. again nothing if he doesn't know how to do it anyhow. Its just some chinese guy. There's a billion of them.

    Building an outsource team.

    Good labour and website development can be built out of china, just as much as India, but this is more or less untapped by what I would consider "retail"

    Typical of labour that is outsourced, it needs to be managed by someone else with a higher level of education.

    Outsource web development, programming etc.

    But building your corporate structure there to protect your profits, you and your friend most likely don't have the skills right now to do, so start on that first.

    but many people who know basic website building or programming knowledge get less $15 bucks per day in China. but i know a potential way:

    1. he may launch a online store on taobao.com and sell some good products directly from USA(kindle is a typical hot product in taobao but chinese can't buy it direcly from amazon, tips: this is why many chinese people buy amazon gift card)

    2. you collect some newest product(electronics or new brand bag) which aren't released in China, and consider which one will be hot in China and ship a sample to him.

    3. promotion

    just my 0.02

    Actually the good thing about China and the other countries in Asia like Indonesia is they good at producing mass, daily products. You can contact me if you can get a company which wants to buy plastic bags (e.g. Walmart, 99 cent. etc), I have a good connection with a plastic bag's exporter here in Indonesia which has a great reputation and experience :)

    My reference was not to traditional US/Canadian and or any developed country structure.

    Operating a business with foreign ownership in China is not like doing business anywhere else- if you know this, then my assumption is wrong.

    Ok I understand the product advantage I could have if I find a product with good profit margins.

    Are there other methods of making money solely based on webmaster skills? For example, putting up a porn site in China with copywrighted content. Since they have different copywright laws over there. I'm curious how these things work and the potential.
