    Hey everyone!

    Ben is the name!

    I've literally just sold one of my personal websites for £23K (british pounds) after not touching it for nearly 2 years and sitting back on the passive income.

    This really opened my eyes to what is possible in terms of getting a website earning and selling it on so I'm now building a new website to hopefully do the same. I signed up to buy a link building package so I thought I'd drop in a say 'Hi' while I was here.

    Other stuff about me;


    • eBay - I know my stuff. Consult to companies about how to maximise their sales and take the traffic and written several training courses on it.
    • Web design - I have a small web design company although we do work with some large brands here in the UK. With that said, up until this point I'd never really thought about selling my own, cash generating websites.
    • Conversions - I'm a bit of a geek when it comes to figuring out how to turn impressions into clicks and clicks into cash.

    Anyway, that's a bit about me.

    I'm sure I'll see you guys around!

    Ben

    I guess this is connected with flippingonsteroids.com promotion or something.

    You know when I join random forum and drop a bomb like this? Never

    You're going to love this. After he got attacked by all of us on Black Hat World, he went back to Warrior Forum after his account "georgewickens1991" was unbanned and created a thread there titled "Be Forgiven For Past Mistakes". Here are some of his posts from that thread:
    Other than that, he hasn't been very active on forums or the Internet with the exception of his Facebook page, which is where he uploaded a CEOSam-esque video back in February.

    Edit: Hey look, I found his old video about all of us. Good times.

    Welcome to BHW buddy

    Its rare for anyone to be given the benefit of the doubt especially a new member so don't be surprised by some of the replies, its only natural that some would be suspicious
