    Sounds like you have no plan.

    1- yes hostgator is fine, best option actually in my opinion

    2- clickbank is fine for the beginning or get into some CPA networks and domain should match your niche

    3- feedburner is not an autoresponder and prob not what you want, aweber is an autoresponder(best out there in my opinion)

    4- yeah read the above. and youre probably not gonna make the money you "need" with this.

    Hi,

    1) Hosting - Host Gator is fine. i have used GoDaddy as well and I must day that their shared hosting is limited in functionality but simple to use and I got to say it is reliable as well. Either one is fine....

    2) Networks - This all depends I Suppose...I started 100% with clickbank. There are just so many products to choose from...Also Never think short term! That was my first mistake with Internet Marketing... I know you said you need the cash now but trust me think long term. Invest 7 dollars on a domain that covers a little broader of a spectrum. For Example..if you choose registry software to sell....pick a domain name that is relevant and broad so you are not locked into a specific product... so in case a few products fall off the map you can plug in the new competitors...

    3)Autoresponder: I use feedburner for by blogs..and it is a great tool.. I must first ask what kind of site you plan on setting up? For example..heres what I would do..I would set up a Clickbank themed website focussing on one niche. I would make up some reviews, some screen shots, some testimonials whatever... next I would make all of my pages focus on selling the product and not confuse the visitor by bombarding him the adsense, banners, Sign Up Now forms etc... I do all of this on the backend when they are trying to leave. I personally use Aweber for my exit popup messages. So in other words I find a crappy free ebook in the Niche..more specifically A PLR ebook on lets say computer repair and I offer that to them in exchange for their email. Aweber manages all of this for me..so no stress for me. So if they did not buy on this visit you can rest assured they will eventually...with emails.

    4) I do not know what to say about this, I know you need the cash right away but do not sacrifice long term success for short term gains. It will only land you int he same place 2 months from now when the fly by night method..well..flies by :) Start small...and grow over time. Start with a few products on click bank and make them into a unified website. Give someone a reason to go there. Backlinks come next, as you do need traffic after all, and if you need a hand on some ideas just let me know...

    Again this is all my opinion, I am sure other experienced guyd and gals here might beg to differ...but take it for what its worth.

    All the best,
    Jeff

    Thanks a lot jeff and multicolor
    i must say jeff the effort u put into that post iam so thankful to you and i kinda get ur drift as i have been blogging and ive branched my one big blog into several smaller ones.
    So i think i will buy a "Theme specific" domain name rather than "Content specific" and get the hostgator hosting.Again thanks a lot guys.
