Ok, I will start with a bit of background about myself first. I have been running websites selling retail products for about 15 years now, usually in the luxury goods and entertainment markets. Pretty much all sorts from mobile phones, handbags, CDs, DVDs etc and usually sourced out of Malaysia, Thailand, China etc. I am very capable on the design side of things and I used to work with someone for most of that time, and it has been a good match. They would run the stock and shipping side of things and I would run the websites, marketing etc. Usually when one product line sales would start to diminish another product would usually present itself and we would move to that. Unfortunately in the last couple of years the markets have become more saturated, and opportunities have become less frequent, so me and my business partner have kind of moved onto different things now. As last business we were in partnership with is dying he has now jumped out of it completely and you could say I'm just there picking up the scraps. As well as this as sales always dropped for us just after the xmas rush, so I usually took this time to go overseas for a few months, kind of like an extended working vacation. This has now lead me to where I am now which is that I am currently looking at trying to make an income from internet based work only, no more products for me hopefully. This will give me the chance to travel more than I normally do. This is probably an 12-18 month plan of mine, as I planning to relocate at sometime late next year. Unlike some people here I am not after that huge gold mine (even though it would be nice), but what I think would be an achievable 2000 gbp / 2500eur / 3000 usd a month income. As I would be heading somewhere such as SE Asia, South America, etc and this would let me live overseas quite comfortably and also allow me to save money for extended trips back home. As for the work I am currently looking into methods that are high intensity to start with then will gradually require less input but still give a regular income. It would be nice to get back into the old situation of finishing work by mid afternoon and enjoying the rest of the day and maybe a few times a month doing very high intensity work. It may sound like I am after the easy money (aren't we all), but I am trying to set things up as I do believe quality of life is more important. As I said earlier this is more about a nice regular income, rather than chasing that big pot of gold. I have been a member of BHW for a fair few years now as I used to use it regularly for SEO stuff, and was a regular buyer in the market place. As I haven't been on here for a couple of years, my old username is no longer accessible as the email no longer exists and for the life of me I can't remember the password. None of that matters anyway as I am starting afresh here, so probably makes sense to start with a new account. Anyway to the plan! The idea is to hit it in two directions, one is on the social marketing side of things, and the other is by putting up micro niche sites running adsense and amazon links. The social networking side of things will mainly be via Facebook groups and pages with the occasional twitter trip. Income will be produced either with referral posts to the groups, and most probably eBay referral via the pages. The micro sites will probably be bought in and then maintained myself. Even though I have done a lot of SEO myself in the past, I have been out of it the past couple of years, so do need to spend a bit of time on here taking a refreshers course lol. I have been working on this for about a week now, and the current state of play at the moment is that I have about six Facebook pages running with only one or two followers, one website running, and I am in the process of making up new Facebook profiles of which I am about up to ten. To see if my idea works I will need to action the following. Find some good affiliate programs that are Facebook friendly, and if needed produce a website for the application process. Find an affiliate program that incorporates the eBay partner network as it will be at least six months before I am in a position to apply direct. Have about ten Facebook pages running, with half of them being auto fed from somewhere, and the other half are niches that I am very knowledgable about so will be run manually. With these pages they also need websites with the auto fed pages having auto fed wordpress sites, and the manual pages being fed from Facebook, Have a minimum of 100 Facebook profiles for group work, not quite sure what I am going to do here yet but I do have a few ideas. Anyway I will update this once in a while, and please feel free to offer up any suggestions, even if it is not something that I am currently looking at, as any idea could turn out to be a good idea for me.
