    Hi guys, I wanted to get some ideas brewing. I have a new business model I'm exploring and it would allow me to have many 1,000's of residential ip's. True 100% res ip's, not data center. So we are talking comcast, verizon, century link etc...

    I wanted to hear some ideas of how best to monetize and what kind of people would use it so I know best to market to them.

    Some ideas I've thought myself are:
    vpn residential service
    scraping (but I don't like this as people could abuse and ips would get banned)
    account creators
    posting on sites like craiglist

    I know dsl lines rent out for $250/month.

    What I would be able to do is allow people to select country and city and I would only have fiber and cable lines (not dial up or dsl which are slow) so the speed would be fast.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Setup an VPN server and sell access. Residential IP's have great long term value so you can price them much, much higher than usual proxies.

    you mean create a site like hidemyass or purevpn but all residential right?
    if so, i thought of tthat and it's certainly an option, my only reseveration is 99% of the people that need to use a vpn don't need res ips, they just need privacy or to watch hulu movies etc... and they can get buy with 5-10 bucks/month. they won't pay the big bucks for res vpn
    thoughts?
    thanks for replying by the way

    Mate just google residential IP for sale or something like that and you will get a lot of ideas how to setup and monetize this services. VPN's are great because you can charge more, have more control and there is already bunch of scripts you can use right of the bat to run this kind of biz.

    You could also create and sell social media accounts made/build with residential IP's. It's a niche, you can charge much more than just those sellers who create them with already spammed proxies. Think about it.


    p.s.: trust me, people who KNOW how valuable are resIP's are wiling to pay 10x from casual datacenters IP's.

    ok, thanks for letting me know. I will check it
    but 1 thing I always wanted to know is how would I provide pva also? I mean if I'm going to do it, I might as well do it right and provide the account and pva with phone number. So all these pva providers, where/how are they doing that inhouse?

    The VPN idea is kind of dumb unless you're going to create an auto rotation ability. There may me a small niche market for static IPs from certain ISPs, but other than that you're going to want to offer a rotating service probably. You're getting a little bit ahead of yourself by the sounds of it though. If you have that many IPs for real, you'd be much better off selling them as proxies and leaving it at that.

    You have a number of ideas listed there that each require quite a bit of planning and time. Your best bet would be to pick one thing and focus on that. Unless you have a team of 50 people working for you you'll never have time to try and do all that. Posting on CL and other classified sites is a full time job in itself almost if you want to have real success in it. The same goes for account creating as that varies from site to site. Contrary to the popular myth around here, residential IPs aren't a cure-all. You still have to beat all the same bot guards as usual, and if you're creating accounts and posting ads on CL from the IPs, then try and sell them as proxies, you'll have some pretty upset people who were probably going to use the proxies for the same thing. You'd probably be best off just focusing on 1 of the ideas and tryin to knock it out of the park. There's actually a very strong market right now for rotating proxy services, especially if you can get past the 10-20k concurrent onlines barrier.

    @akacash thank you for your input, i agree with you.
    So you are talking about backconnect service like localproxies or stormproxies right?

    My only concern is I will be using these for google for my software (as it's seo tool) and I don't want people abusing them.

    What do you mean by " especially if you can get past the 10-20k concurrent onlines barrier." ? do you mean if I can provided that # of ip's or are you talking about something else?
