    Hey Guys I have a Fantastic opportunity for someone motivated to work that has the time and good SEO ability. The niche is sex toys, Lingerie, Clubwear, Cosmetics etc.. For those that dont know the sex toy industry is a BILLION dollar industry:
    Code:
    http://www.inc.com/articles/2008/01/sex.html
    I have several other projects right now that are eating away at my time and budget and really need someone with a good reputation to take over marketing and possibly recreating the look of the site.

    WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR:

    I have set up the site with a fulfillment center, they handle the orders, they ship the orders, they handle customer service etc... All that has to be done on this end is make the site look and feel like we want and to market the site.

    There is a twitter account set up with over 1000 followers and a FB fan page set up with just over 100 followers.

    I pay the monthly fee they charge for the creation and upkeep of the site.

    What needs to be done:

    What needs to be done is for the site to rank on page 1 for terms like sexy lingerie, sex toys, vibrators and of course long tail versions of those same terms. Also some html and/or graphic design knowledge would be a plus but not necessarily required since I believe as is the site can turn sales.

    What you get:
    What you get is complete admin access to the back end where you can see all sales made, you can adjust pricing, you can create coupons etc... right now I am charging 2x's the wholesale value and it is still cheaper than 99% of similar online shops out there and 100% of brick and mortar stores I have seen.

    You also get 50% of any profit we turn on the sales.

    Things to be aware of:
    You cant "steal" my account. There is nowhere in the admin panel that has my info, in addition I set up the site with a real tax id and with a real account manager, so even if you go in and change the user/password I can call the account manager and take it back.

    I get paid via check in the mail and roughly 2 months after the sale. EX: I sold some items at the end of September and got a check 1st week of December. This is to allow for potential returns etc.. Most items have a 0 return policy due to the nature of the item BUT if the item is defective etc... then we have to be aware that returns are possible. As soon as I get paid, I deposit the check and you get paid. It's that simple.

    I am NOT deducting my monthly costs from the profit, I will eat that cost!!



    Who are some of the vendors you carry?


    This is a SMALL list but for some idea of product here you go:

    LINGERIE/CLUBWEAR
    Sex Toys
    This is not an exhaustive list I just wanted you to see that we deal with the major players in the industry.

    I want to be clear...THIS IS NOT AN AFFILIATE SITE...Rather, this is a branded online store where WE set the margins we want and WE make as much profit as we can make based on what we find the customer will pay for the service.

    There are similar programs that DO offer a turnkey affiliate site but there are TWO problems with this.
    A) THEY set the margins
    B) You get 25%

    So if we have a cost on an item of $5 we can sell it at $10 and split the $5 profit, on the other hand if we find out that we can sell it at $15, we are free to do so and then split $10 profit.

    If You are interested what do you do?
    Post in this thread and then Send me a PM with your Plan, any success you have had in the niche already. If not give me a brief bio of yourself and other success you have had. Let me know your commitment to the project as far as time/effort and what you are going to do. I would like a rough report of what you are doing so I know that I am not wasting my time each week.

    For instance to apply I might say: My name is Joe Blow, I have 3 blogs in an adult niche already that rank top 10 for "this, that and the other" I get around 9000 UV's per month with each site. I Also own scrapebox and SENUKE as well as AMR and I plan on XY and Z to the site over the next few weeks. In addition I Blah blah blah...

    Folks, with the right person this can make thousands every month pretty much hands off aside from marketing. If you ever wanted to do e-commerce but didnt want the hassle of dealing with orders, fulfillment, customer service, returns etc... THIS IS IT! Contact me ASAP if you are interested!

    EDIT_ If you dont have the means, either financially or through tools to market at least weekly please do not bother. I am NOT asking for a single penny from you but I would like someone who can drive traffic to the site through social media and search engine traffic. In order to do so you should have the money or tools necessary to get this done. Currently Approved Service providers on BHW get immediate consideration BUT I intend to pick the best person(s) with the best plan.

    I wonder why the hesitation? Is it the niche?

    Home Page:
    This project can surely bring in huge amounts.
    But the first page competition is a bit high,so ranking will take a bit.

    What is the current position of the site?
    also you can try facebook advertising(not sure if this niche is allowed),it will surely convert.

    Tools i own :
    Scrapebox
    Senuke
    AMR(in order actually).

    Rankings are all over the board but to be honest I have done very little with the site in over a month due to a number of reasons as mentioned above.

    I dont want to pour more money in via advertising but yes I did a VERY small campaign with adwords recently and got a sale out of it. So yes the site itself will convert if it gets ranked and yes competition is stiff but I am a firm believer that a motivated individual with good skills will be smarter than some of these companies of the 1st page. Smart keyword long tail kw selection while also trying for the short tail version, optimizing brand names or categories or specific items etc...

    All the things I do not have time to do at the moment...lol..
