    Income - it depends on the niche and how much effort you put into building and maintaining an audience. It isn't passive at first and it may never be passive depending on how much competition is in the niche and how dynamic the products in the niche are.

    Expenses - hosting ($50/year); website maintenance (depends on whether you do it yourself or not), content writers (again are you doing it yourself or hiring someone), social media management (again you or someone else)

    Read journeys in here specifically I think meathead (there are numbers after his name but it escapes me -- look in journeys I think) has an awesome tutorial for newbies.

    Are you buying an established site or building one? Even if you buy an established one I would be looking at the tutorials and journeys to be sure that it was built properly and is leveraging the correct keywords , SEO tactics etc..

    Here is the journey that I was referring to: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/m...on-newbie-friendly-phase-5a-published.832879/

    If you follow that you should have no problem ensuring it is built up correctly. My only other recommendation would be to get creative with the marketing... almost any method on here requires you to twist it and come up with your own variation in order to punch through the next level of success.

    And.. sorry last one... make sure that the niche you chose is something you can see yourself dealing in for awhile... you don't have to love it but at least tolerate it and be interested enough to learn more about it as it grows and evolves. If it bores you to tears you may not be motivated to keep going when the money isn't pouring in to motivate you.

    Im a very greedy guy, if it makes money im interested. now to start I would like to see $200/month after 3 months preferred. Also I do work a full time job but I have a stay at home wife that is very teachable and willing to tend to the project for 3 hours a day (more if really needed).

    Im somewhat scared to dump $475 on a service to build me a site that will see no profit when I spend valuable time and effort improving it and what not.
