    Is it possible to take World of Warcraft Guides, and then reselling them?
    WoW Guides are one of the most powerful markets in the web for making money.
    An example:

    idemis3 guide

    replace 3 with E

    Search for it.
    It will be possible to get money from this?

    WoW guides have totally over-saturated the market, otherwise please show me your statistics

    Maybe you can find some with resell rights. If not..if you are selling copyrighted wow guides than you can expect lawsuit if the person has a lot of money. I wouldn`t mess around with something like this. I think there are plenty wow guides on cli*ckbank or pa*ydo*com so you can sell them as an affiliate.

    Why not? WOW is huge. Saturated, but still huge. Give a go. People will pay good money for what they want. My sister just paid $59 for a guide to Muppet tv episodes, movies & lyrics And she was happy as a pig in slop.

    This definitely has its cons and pros...

    Pros.
    This is something you probably really like to do. Which will make work more like play, and that is always a plus. So if you love wow then it is probably a great niche to get into. Also WOW is a huge market so plenty of people to sell to.

    Cons.
    This being something you love, do you really want to make a job out of it? Also like everyone said its a very saturated market. You can find these guides for free as well, if you look hard enough. Just going through game forums you can find anything out you want. You also have sites like thotbot which is like the WOW bible. People generally dont want to pay for things they can get for free.

    All I am saying is you aren't the first person to think about it and it will be very difficult to compete with the established guides already

    why not outsource the leveling of characters and sell those?

    i posted a guide on this a while ago. takes some time and some money to do though.

    Thre is tons of mony to make on MMORPG's
    A blog to check out is this one: http://looterslounge.blogspot.com/
    He has great ideas, and alot of stuff on RMT ( Real mony transfers (Selling mmorpg stuff for mony)).

    I'm not sure WoW is the game to go for. I predict Warhammer online will out grow World of Warcraft within the next few years. Get in now - from the start and make some mony on it.

    Well you could allways "make" your own guide, just copy some of the leveling stuff from different guides, they are all pretty much same

    same with make gold guides , basic crap with some places "ooh keel those lizard they give you moneyz"

    they are like internet marketing books , but even worse :p some might have something you have not though before

    I have been running a site selling WoW guides for about a year now. It is what actually got me started in affiliate marketing. The WoW market is extremely saturated. I have been lucky to average one guide per month. In my opinion its not worth the time.
    This guy was selling a really nice guide to make money from MMORPG's on ebay a couple years ago that was really good. I actually made about $1,500 a month selling in game items from Guild Wars back when eBay still allowed virtual items. I flipped one WoW account that I bought off eBay, but there isn't the money in it that there was a couple years ago. I did set up a site for the Warhammer guides, but I haven't dedicated much time to it, so I'm not sure how much interest there is out there. If you are really interested in gaming the best thing to do would be write your own guide and let other people sell it for you.

    There is major potential in a WOW guide site. Especially if you target correctly....
