I'm a noob to SEO and this whole world of IM. I've been doing my research on Affiliate marketing in particular for the last month or so. I'm going into my 3rd year of college and my true dream is to start an online clothing store for a street wear brand I'm developing, but as I get closer and closer to graduation I'm starting to realize that if my clothing business isn't successful enough for me to survive off of I'll have to join the rat race like the majority of my peers. I got interested in IM (and my clothing line really) because of the freedom it would give me from a boss and a commute every day with little vacation time or flexibility. Luckily my family is fairly wealthy (I won't say exactly how wealthy, but more than wealthy enough to fly to any country in the world in first class seats for 4 people and then spend thousands of dollars on lodging, food and shopping). But this money won't be handed to me in a trust fund or anything of the sort if I decide to just be a bum and not even attempt to get a job with my education. I know people say there is no auto-pilot "push-button" software or system that will get me earning thousands of dollars a week automatically. But I know there must be some way to outsource all of the hard work and get multiple revenue streams up and running quickly if I had enough money, right? How much would it cost and what steps would I need to take to hire people or buy legitimate software to build an online empire for me from the ground up in less than a month so I'm making at least $5k per month? (and if you're wondering why I even need to worry about money if I can just ask for a large sum of money to blow on hiring some people to do my work for me, understand that my question is partially hypothetical because there's no guarantee that I would recieve the money if I asked for it. I'm just wondering how expensive it would be) TL;DR: Assuming I had a lot of disposable income, how much would it cost and what steps would I need to take to hire people or buy legitimate software to build an online empire for me from the ground up in less than a month so I'm making at least $5k per month?
