    Hey guys, I recently sold my share in an online startup i co-founded and would like to put a little bit of the cash into a new venture. My dream for the past few years has always been to go into seo full time. I dont want to offer services to clients but rather to work on in-house portfolio projects. I would like to get big enough to eventually run an office with a several people working on portfolio sites.

    I have a decent knowledge of seo and am comfortable with software such as senuke, scrapebox, article marketing robot, sick submitter, traffic travis and market samurai as i was responsible for doing seo on my startup. I dont however have a technical skillset.

    It seems like many people here are doing emd micro niche sites with amazon or adsense. Im a bit intrigued by the concept of having 50 to 100 sites making several dollars per day each however i know that sounds much much easier than it is.

    Im curious to hear what you would do if you had maybe 20 or 30k to invest in a new seo venture

    Which country are you from??? The first thing you need to make sure is the management part if you are planning to go for an big office for seo.

    Not all people will be like you interested and involved in projects. If you thing management is going to be easy, you are going to be surprised.

    I have similar experience where i used to concentrate on management becoz its hard to manage people.

    And all that is from my point of view. You will make more profit and less risk if you are making use of the online services.

    IDK how it will go for you.. I wish you all success..

    Cheers!!

    If i have your money and experience, i would go full time selling seo related services. I would hire myself one very experienced virtual assistant to keep me focused on management rather than operations. I will then use some of the money to buy some tools, hire some other VA's with technical experience running these tools or creating content and sell services to clients. I'll keep the team small in the beginning while learning much from actually managing that venture ( i know from offline experience the low points of being an entrepreneur ). However That is just me, an inexperienced SEO wannabe, wanting to make a living out of selling SEO services, among a multitude of other system i could use. just contributing my humble two cents. Thank you.

    btw, you are 007! You can do anything just believe in yourself! :p
