    If mod sees this thread fitting in another section, please move.

    Hi there.

    I was searching for a similar thread, but couldn't find any.

    A bit about me
    Serial entrepreneur from Sweden, mid 20's. Been running businesses for a couple of years now.
    Some are sold, some are outsourced while I still own shares, and some I still run.

    Netting (profit) about $250.000 per year (last 3 years). Recently started my biggest project/company yet.
    More in-depth can be found here: My introduction thread

    Purpose of this thread
    I see there's a lot of incorrect information going around; a lot of guessing, heresy and answers from
    people with little or no actual experience. I am, I would say, fairly experienced when it comes
    to business, have dealt with both broke startups, big corporations and the business around
    the corner - and think it'll be fun answering some questions and share my knowledge!

    My expertise
    General business;
    entrepreneurship, staying motivated, finding the right partners, keeping
    employees happy, creating infrastructure etc.

    Making money; find your target audience, structure offers & packages, increase conversions,
    finding untapped markets, branding, ad networks, affiliates etc.

    Development; coding languages for easiest money, outsourcing, servers etc.
    Marketing; what platform for which product, ad structure, audience etc.

    Obviously not all aspects are covered in the above - but shoot me any question and I'll be more
    than happy to give you the best of my knowledge.

    All the best,
    Emil

    If you are great with social media, own and operate a few companies. Why in your intro you mentioned about alot to learn from BHW? For someone like you to come here to "learn" its like Stephan Hawking going to a community college to learn physics.

    There's a lot to learn from here. There are people with way more knowledge than me in certain areas, for sure.
    A quick glance at the marketplace you'll find a lot of talents.

    When you say on your introduction that you graduated at the age of 19, you mean high school or college ?

    Neither, in Sweden we have something called gymnasium! I guess the correct term would be upper secondary school.

    This is what makes me very suspicious. You are already at a level surpassing 99.99% of the people on BHW, yet you are in awe with a marketplace that is obviously flaky(other than hosting). Think about it for a second, would AskMen, Geek, or Extremtech use article services from the marketplace here or any site like BHW?

    Had a similar discussion with a mod just earlier today actually.
    I'm not here to "use article services", neither am I here purely to learn either. BHW is a huge, extremely niched forum - and believe it or
    not it's an ideal place to connect with likeminded.

    I understand most people here are struggling to make $50 a day on IM - sure, I buy that. But what differs BHW compared to most other forums is
    that people here are extremely eager to learn and work. That inspires me, believe it or not.

    I've been lurking around once a week for quite some time now, and felt it's time to create an profile and help people grow.
    I'm not here to market any of my business (BHW is the completely wrong marketplace for that, both you and me can agree on that).
    The only reason why I even list my business here is that I don't want to be labeled as someone inexperienced and therefore not being
    given the ability to help.

    -Edit-
    Regarding learning; most of the resellers know 100x more than me on how algorithms on different platform works, how to advertise for the
    highest return and in depth of systems. They've dedicated their lives to it and built a business around it. I'm simply a business person with a
    lot of experience on most of the things around actual business - but haven't had the chance to go real in depth as it's not really my field. So there's
    definitely a lot to learn from them, if they ever feel like sharing that is.

    I hope that clears it up for you bud!

    So in the intro you mentioned $250k per year from just facebook, but here you mentioned $250k per year total.

    SEO is common sense stuff its not something complicated as its based on stuff from 20 years ago, its pretty much focusing on quality and taking action. With ads themselves you can learn some from here, but if you are really serious about learning to do them well, some psychology and marketing courses should be taken.


    With wristwatches, its actually not that impressive to launch a wrist watch company, it can be done for relatively cheap for quality watches. There are several companies that offer the design making pretty cheap with a prototype and its is pretty quick to get designed because of CAD

    Sorry about that. The intro is correct.
    Regarding the other part I'm not sure what kind of reply you want me to give you.

    Its just very suspicious you being on here with all those claims, this site has had a ton of Gurus come on here over the years.Anyone can say what ever profit they want, but there is no way to verify.

    Are you taking initiative and is it good that you are doing what you like? Yes. But at the same time that type of company is going to be impressing all the thousands of noobs here; they don't realize that its not something that takes a great deal of money.

    I think you misunderstand me. I'm not looking to impress anyone. I'm not looking to take advantage of anyone or anything. I'm not looking to promote any of my businesses.

    All I've done is create a thread for a simple Q&A, if anyone wish to bounce ideas back and forth.
    I'm not forcing you to listen to me or what I have to say - just thought it'd be something fun to do and ability to connect with likeminded.

    If you're that interested however, feel free to PM me your Skype and I'll "verify" that my numbers are real. For whatever it's worth. It's public information in Sweden anway.

    Literally just registered to tell everyone to get off the grass....

    Why question Emil's intentions to sign up for a forum? What was your intentions when you signed up for this forum?
    If you feel inadequate reading the users claims, then maybe that's a self reflection on you not putting in enough effort.

    Yes, the marketplace is truly filled to the brim with a lot of talents.

    I noticed you did not answer my question. If you aren't trying to impress anyone, just tell us: Are you an alpha male?

    You signed up just to defend this random? Sounds legit
