    Hello! I am looking to partner up with someone good at web building and seo. I have tons of products, no pharma or dropshipping crap. Real hot selling items that I was doing very well with until the guy I was working with went bad on me, stole some measly dollars and now the websites are down. I don't have the time or knowledge to get them going again so I need someone to work with on a long term basis who has a lot of energy and wants to make some money. Job duties would include building up new websites, adding products(which I would also help with) and seo, maintenance and the like. TRUST is a big issue here, so I am looking for upstanding members as a start. Hit me up here if anyone wants to talk seriously.

    The guy I was working with was doing some shady shit and re routing payments to his personal email accounts and I went to do some changes so he did not have access to the site and I wrecked the site somehow and it is now down :(

    What niche? Ecommerce? How competitive? Do only you have access to the product? Or you former partner(most likely future competitor too)? Who owns the domains which are down now? What ever you did to site - it most likely can be fixed. PM me more details if you want.

    Yeah I really dont know what I did, but the site went down on me. I do have all products and the guy I was working with is not going to be a competitor as he can not make any of the stuff. It is all very good selling items, t-shirts, exclusive flags, decals and the like. I own the domains too so that will not be a problem. Just worried I might have to start from scratch.

    I am bringing a full line of products to the partnership, proven items that sell very well. I also would handle the shipping of all items. So the production, customer service and shipping will all be handled by me. Website and seo to be done by an interested party looking to make some cash without laying out any money. In return I would give a % of the website every week to the partner. I have new stuff every week so it would be growing fast in the right hands.

    And it would end up being multiple websites, but I want to start with one first and make sure I have the right person :)

    So, you want someone to create and rank sites and sell your products, right?

    And people are PM-ing you? Wow, a lot of stupid people out there, which is actually great...

    I'm curious to see what his product is. If its his own product and something in demand and/or original, it could be worth the work.

    Everything is in demand if you're on first spot at page one at Google. If you don't rank he don't pay you. If you rank he will pay you some percentage (maybe) but he don't care, cause he didn't invest anything.
    Then you will be angry at him and maybe take a couple of hundreds from him and runaway, after that he will come back to say how his previous JV partner or whatever run away crushing "his site" so he needs a new sheep.

    I wanna buy your sig, how much :D LOL. Good and sound advice though, find your own set of products and sell them. Getting customized t-shirts and decals is not that hard; you can even outsource to a drop shipper. Why would you rank the OP on the first page for a small % of the cut when you can have 100% of it to yourself especially since hes asking YOU to setup the website and do ALL the SEO on it (which is pretty much everything you need to promote anything).

    I don't want to argue semantics because I have no clue what the OP is selling. But some of us don't want to deal with creating a product, storing it, shipping it, etc. So a JV is a good deal.

    Also, he asked for a website and seo, but if its a good product, there's much more that can be done (Media buy for example). What some people may see as a waste of time or a potential scam, I see as a potential gold mine.

    Granted, I'm 99% confident that the product won't be worth the effort in this case, but, it's that 1% chance that this guy has a legit product that makes me want to find out more.

    Searching Google for OP's username takes you to his sites and FB page.

    Looks like somebody fixed his site for him.

    Yeah I did manage to get one of the sites back up but a lot of the products are missing from it. Not looking for a sheep either, but an honest hard working reliable guy who is looking for a long term relationship and I offer the same in return. I run a small family business that has been growing very rapidly the past 2 years. If your making 5 grand a week now doing your seo, yeah this is probably not the venture for you. I am not promising anyone $1000 a day or even a week, at least not at the start, but it could end up being very lucrative. Sure you could buy shirts and decals from a dropshipper, but its expensive and hardly worthwhile, not to mention a lot of work. I have a full line already, in stock ready to ship. I also have a lot of custom products, and items no one else in the world is carrying. I also work with many great artist who supply me with mad designs. Also many repeat customers that buy from me on ebay and amazon that I send business cards to drive them to the websites. I have my hands full right now taking care of orders and production, so I do not have the time to learn anything about web building. As for my last partner, things were going good for a while and he started messing with the drugs and it went downhill fast. I knew something was up bc he would disappear for a week or 2 with no answer to my emails several times over the past months. He re routed several payments to his personal email for himself and the rest is history. I was glad I caught it early enough. We were working with 1 website and making decent money even though he was a shit. So if your a person good with web skills and does not want the hassle of dealing with shipping or dropshipping hit me up, but I really want someone in the US, Florida would be preferable. I am an honest hard working guy, and I can give plenty of business references to attest to my honesty and integrity. The beginning will be the hardest, but once we get up and running full blast it should be very simple to maintain. I would also do whatever I can to help by adding new products and the things I am capable of doing with the websites.
