By accident today I found a completely untapped niche that has the potential to make a LOT of money. This would be a site for people in a specific professional service. Basically it would be a comprehensive online resource that is searchable and I'd want users to be able to add content as well so it will continue to grow. According to my friend who is in this industry, there are approximately 35,000 members of this profession in the US alone. He said he'd be willing to pay between $200-500 a year for access to the content on the site depending on how well it's done. At a 5% conversion rate and ignoring the tens of thousands in other countries, that's potentially $350k+ a year. The content would need to be sourced from various resource texts which equal approximately 35k pages of printed material. These resource texts are not available in electronic format. So, my questions mainly have to do with what is the best way to get the content from the books onto the site and make it unique enough that there are no copyright issues. There are several publishing companies that provide these resource guides and while they all may use a little bit different language, the content is basically the same, so I would only be able to re-write it to a certain extent before it would be useless. It'd be likel trying to re-write a dictionary. Since the potential on this is big, I want to make sure I do it right and would appreciate any suggestions on how to convert tens of thousands of pages of content from paper to electronic without spending the next 10 years typing and without violating copyrights. Thanks!
