    Hello everyone,
    I'm a newbie and non-native english speaker. I am evaluating where to start and here are my ideas so far:

    -YouTube channel + affiliate marketing: I would make reviews (but not limited to) and provide some content about technology (quite nerdy things). I tried this for fun and got to rank my video in the top 3 using SEO properly. So I teamed up with a friend that would contribuite recording me (with his own DSLR camera, that I don't own so I would have done it myself) and editing the videos. We have to decide the name yet and set up the branding (logo + intro + banner for YT). (is 50% share fair? I would choose topics, prepare the reviews/content of course).

    -Deals: like before, affiliate marketing but without providing too much content. My idea is to set up a bot that would post to FB page and other channels. Not sure if there is something like that already, I can code but I'm not a professional so it would take a while to develop it. Maybe this is a weak idea and could be assimilated by the previous one? Mainly to use the trust gained from the channel

    -Selling my own ebook. The niche would be study/productivity/self improvement stuff which I have some knowledge on and I am passionate about. I read a lot of stuff about it during college and for me it really would be a sincere thing: passing along the tips and tricks that helped me out. Problems is: I think there are already lot of website like this, not sure if I would be too different from the others. Also I would have to provide content so this would be a long term thing and I am not sure the effort would be worth it.

    Thoughts?

    your first 2 plans sound good ..... seems like you can program and set up stuff.

    i would not go for a ebook.

    for some reason I thought this was going to be a marijuana thread.

    The first and last idea makes sense to me the second one I don't really understand what you're bought posting to Facebook would do sounds like you're making videos and then you perhaps want to post that video in different groups automatically? I know Facebook has been getting really hard on bots automation and fake accounts recently so I would be weary of trying to build something that won't work a couple of months later.

    Yes I can program but I am not really web oriented, little HTML, CSS and so on but more on the C++ and Java stuff
    LOL for the marijuana thing, didn't even think about that

    What I meant with the second idea is providing a channel (for example a facebook page) which posts deals on that niche, the same niche as the first idea so that's the why I though of joining the two together. Not sure I made this clear enough.
