Hi Aaron -
I did the same thing a few months ago and came to the conclousion that must/nearly all are a scam.
I only found on good way to make money from the interent and thats buy building/writting wesites for poeple. Thats what I'm tring to do now. Made a couple so far and earn't a bit of cash and a free holiday in Tenerife.
I'm going to start advertising and hope to do more.
yeah i was kinda afraid of them being all scams
oh well thanks for your infomation richard i appreciate it. altho ive never ever built a site in my entire life...is it easy?i was hoping to create my own site one day....one day hmmmmmmmm never! lol
I had to leave work about 4 years ago, I could find a job, and was sitting on my Asz doing nothing, I was on here, and some one said look at my site.. When i had a look it clicked... (slow or what)
I went hunting around for a bit, looking for URls, and well with people on here I started GT WCMT.
It was easy considering I had ran 3 of my own businesses before hand and I can provide a service that people want.. Fix computers, tutor IT related courses, sell cheap hardware, that sort of thing.
Because of my back ground getting up and running wasnt a problem, I know all about web promotions etc. So I went from doing nothing, to being hit like mad week one saw 26K hits week 4 saw 64K, and for a few months I was getting 170K hits. Currently Im getting about 70K hits
Sadly Not many people are buying from the site and I do get quite a few call outs but all in the same week, sod's law! and some times none.
Owning /running a business gives you peaks and falls of business its really unstable.
But think of the skills you have, start a site about it, Promote it, then see if people buy from it. Simple. (no its not) lol
My dad is an avid believer that sex sells, any site offering porn etc, will get lots of business, collecting credit card numbers and cashing in, even if your not offering any thing, (whos going to take you to court for there money?) but try some thing honest, that you can do, and you enjoy.
BTW, I used to be a business analyst as well (business advisor) so any ideas, just send them and I will give you five minutes.
Yeah it shouldn't take you long to get into the basics of building a website. Once you get more advanced i would suggest buying stuido mx from macromedia it's what i got and i love it. There are so many things you can do with that. I live in small town so i get quite a bit of people asking me to make a website for their small business since there are few people in my town that even know html
Hey jared thats a nice clean site
I did have that software, well the full MX package., I recently updated to MX2004, Well let just say I would recomend it as its hanging with bolding and font color changes which MX would fly. I guess its more intensive
ME and my webdesigners, were having a look at some of the first website we made as kids... then compairing them to some of todays businesses website.
Shopping carts with PHP and SQL is the thing to learn alot of people stop by but dont buy, I believe its because its not got a shopping cart.. But thats all comming soon!
