    jdm.. I like the thinking. I'll need to put more thought into this. Ideally I need to get feedback from my clients on what problem I can help them solve. Not sure the best way to do that yet.

    1. There is a directory by city, where web firm post their info for free. 2. There is a "top 10 firms" by category (web design / mobile / etc) where the firms pay to be in the top 10. The more they pay, the higher their rank. I drive traffic through google search, page 1 for most web firm...

    Andy, great suggestions. I'm going to spend the weekend digging into this. Please keep any ideas or suggestions coming :) "a smart man learns from his mistakes. a wise man learns from others mistakes".

    Bio, heck ya I agree... but I had only a few hours to decide on this one so I jumped in. I originally did this purchase to pay for my R8 (60k purchase for 30k annual profit covers payments). However the more I dig into it, there's a ton of upside here! I made the decision to set bigger goals...

    The site I bought started as a directory site that has been around for 15 years. I did evaluate a number of business templates "pre built", but I figured better to pay the premium for something already working with revenue that I can run vs. investing 1 to 2 years for the risk of no results.

    While I've had a nice corp sales career, I'm always thinking about ways to make extra income streams. Stocks, Bonds, and Real Estate have treated me well. But I'm always thinking about ways for additional income. I was first inspired by biophase thread of buying an online biz to pay for a...

    GOLD! From 0 To $240,000 Per Year PROFIT In 18 Months

    Excellent point. And thank you for sharing. Sounds simple, but hard to make the ask (for me)... curious, what would you do in my situation. The site I'm acquiring has 3 monthly subscription customers who generate 60% of the revenue (3 of 10 total currently). They have each renewed for 3+...

    Anyone used a successful Amazon Affiliate site to start selling as FBA?

    I'm in the process of buying a content site (reviews) that makes commission off Amazon purchase referrals (affiliate). I figure, instead of simply sending links to Amazon for others to profit, why not refer my links to my own amazon product. I know it will take a little time to get my amazon...

    INTRO "In It" for the Long Game

    ecommercewolf - I'll need your expertise to help me out as I'm close to pulling the trigger on an FBA site for purchase. Buying a site gets me in the game, it has stable earnings with nice growth opportunity. But being a newbie I'm going to need mentoring to get this thing in the right...

    Buying Internet Sites. 3 small sites vs. 1 large site. Feedback Needed.

    @UnrealCreative: Thanks for the tip. I have been following RichardG's portfolio strategy. This is the genesis of my thinking behind 3 sites. Buy the most solid sites I come across, invest time, build and grow. Downside: I will lack the focus on 3 vs. 1 single site. And I do have a full...
