    Hi all,

    I want to make more money! :)

    I am a travel agent working in Zimbabwe. I work for an agency here and have 4 years experience but I am not making enough money with the agency. I only get 15% of the charge I make for a booking, and that charge is usually only $50-70, so I only make $7-10 commission on a flight! :(

    How can I monetize my profession more efficiently and effectively on the internet? Through airline affiliation schemes maybe? How do I find these?

    My cousin is a web developer and has offered to help me on this project, so Im trying to seek out some advice form you guys :)

    Hope anyone can help me here!

    I will just say that this niche is hard.
    But on the other hand, if you make it you will make it BIG.
    There's some stuff you can do thats fairly unique to your situation with the right marketing. Do you use msn or skype?
