    1. Look for businesses that don't have websites
    2. Call them asking if they want a website
    3. If they do, sell them one from a reseller company with a markup so u make money as middleman
    4. After the website is made offer them seo
    5. resell the seo from seoclerks or whatever
    6. $$$$$$$$$$:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    What do you guys think?

    Yeah, if all goes well, this method works wonders.
    I haven't tried this personally, but I have heard a few people do it. Besides, I have seen it being posted on BHW multiple times.

    I think you're in 1996...not cause of the method, but cause of the fact that you think this is something new.

    I couldn't find anything online about this method.
    Maybe its something people do but just don't talk about?
    Do you think there is still opportunity for it to work, or has it already been raped and over saturated?

    $1000? What for? If you plan to create websites for others you should be able to create your own. Or maybe if you're like me and not good with design then you can pay $100-$200 for PSD template and do the rest yourself.

    It's a better idea to try and sell people websites who have shitty websites already.

    It's 2013.... the people who don't have a website at this time probably never will, and the sale is MUCH harder to do. Not saying everyone who doesn't have a site doesn't want one, but the majority of those who do not have one, choose to not have one.

    People with shit websites know they're shit. The sale is much, much, much easier.

    At the same time, you probably don't want to go after people with amazing websites either.

    I'm not speculating;w this is what I've been doing for the last 6 months.

    Before you try to be a middleman, try to know a minimum about the service you want to provide...
    You even don't know the price for a website and try to sell them ?

    Yes it is possible and I do it as well, but honestly, before selling any services you should be able to setup a few sites by yourself so that you can talk to your potential clients about it. You don't need to spend 1000$, you can do it yourself and you will learn the process at the same time.

    Here's what I would recommend.

    1) Decide what you want to do and which services to offer.
    2) Write your own texts or hire somebody on the forum or iWriter to write your texts
    3) Install Wordpress
    4) Go to Themeforest and buy a nice looking theme for 45$.
    5) Install it, customize it and add your text.
    6) Look for answers online on Google for everything that you don't understand and that isn't working.

    There you go, now you have a nice looking website that cost your 45$ and you learned how to do it yourself.

    Then, promote the shit out of your website through your network, IM and SEO.
    You can use Taktical's method here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...empire-earning-15-000-month-three-months.html

    Thank you for teaching me how to fish. You just ruined a wonderful business opportunity.

    lol jk,

    thanks for the advice though

    and I'm assuming you get your customers from business directories like yellow pages?

    so then I shouldn't buy from a reseller?

    I should just resell the wordpress themes for huge markup?
