    congrats!

    My suggestion is just do a small wedding, family and close friends. You'll save a lot of money and probably be glad you did. I wish I would have, big weddings are a waste if your concerned about money.

    Hi,
    I'm amazed everyone or most seem pessimistic. I dare say that very few of the pessimists here started their sites with the kind of goal and/or vision you have. most of us start out for fun..How do you expect to achieve what was never your primary purpose??

    What do I mean?? If your goal and target is what you have defined it to be, then spend a little extra time to come up with an idea nobody had come up with and I'm sure with a little brains you'll make it. All the other internet successes were recorded that way.

    If you want it badly enough, you'll get it...with a target of December 31st and equivalent determination...it's achievable.

    My advice would be to go for a website rather than an ebook. You sound like you have the skills and enthusiasm to write articles and could learn about how to put the site together. Build a site with a community element that you can grow and in time it will self perpetuate. Offer your articles to other sites and newsletters in your area in return for links back to your own site. Making money off content sites is getting easier. I would advise going for adsense rather than affiliate marketing (esp if you have a community) as you primary revenue source. Then there's no confusion that your articles are non-bias and informational. Learn about SEO but don't over-do it. As long as you are getting indexed time is better spent getting links (for traffic) and writing content.

    I am making $15K+ monthly, but it took me 2.5 years to get there (working at 70-80 hours per week) and I did not earn anything (except for a few dollars here and there) those first 2.5 years. Once you get there though - it's only a few hours work a week

    Autosending ebooks...

    2) Customer pays with Paypal or Stormpay
    3) Transaction completes
    4) Customer is automatically sent ebook.

    Now I've dabbled in autoresponders, but setting up this system eludes me. My webpage provider has a shoppingcart feature, but I am ashamed to say, it was all greek to me...and that was the tutorial page! My fiance was no help, as the university has no use for shopping carts on their pages.
    SFW,

    Seems no one answered your obvious questions above, so I'll give it a shot...

    Create your ebooks first, and output into a format you can have some control over, with security features that give a modicum of anti-copy features (pdf, exe based ebook, etc). Create some kind of style guide, after deciding on your ebook tool, and create standardized logos, header graphics, navigation links, etc, that will be in each and every book you do.

    After you have a few done, spell checked, secured, and ready to put online, then get your own host. I have been using Hostrocket.com for over 4 years, and am very happy with them. They offer a FREE 25 meg account with no banners or popups, to get new users to upgrade to their paid accounts (which I think are a great value). Get your free hosting space at http://free.hostrocket.com .

    From there, you can get a basic page site online to offer your ebooks, using links created on Paypals merchant pages.

    If you want to do the auto delivery after Paypal payment, you'll have to upgrade to a good basic account that gives PHP and mySQL access, which Hostrocket has for even their cheapest paid hosting, at the Rocket ONE level, which gives you 10 mySQL databases.

    With PHP and mySQL, you can then use any of a number of file serving ecommerce scripts, from $10 to $1000. I can recommend many, and have purchased several the past year. My favorite is a great value at only $19.95....check out RushTheWeb's eDelivery.

    http://rushtheweb.com/edelivery.php

    eDelivery offers instant download after Paypal purchase, tracking of sales, click to send or resend, and many nifty tools, at a heck of a price.

    Your ebooks, a basic host, a Paypal account, and just this single script will get you started online with income very quickly, especially when you get the site listed in Google and other search tools.

    My personal site (also doing ecommerce) does 5 million hits a year, and is VERY deeply visited by most search bots. Very helpful, because MY site is content heavy, and the products are also ebooks, or collections of them on CD.

    With that going on, I can add a new project of mine to the front page of my main site (in a 'my projects' box on the bottom of the page, and within a week, sometimes less, Google has the new site indexed very nicely.

    Not making thousands a month (yet), but my recently finished real life business plan for the site has opened my eyes to some very easy to accomplish goals that could create income up to $20k a month..all legal, all basic, and all well within my skill and business range....just have to take time from two part time jobs and 18 credit hours of college to implement them...

    All in all, if you're still thinking ebooks, the above will get you going down the road, while cutting costs, and giving global access to your books. Think about it and see what you can come up with....hope this helps in some way.

    I'm also developing my own affiliate program to help expand my CD sales...and have some recommendations there as well.

Do you really think having the same old content as everyone else will help you one bit? So what about the people that write for sitepoint? You don't think writers should get paid?

    What I think is a scam is someone selling the same old articles over and over.

    Agreed. Getting good quality unique content is expensive. I'm willing to pay $0.10 U.S. per word for articles that are 700 - 1,000+ words on topics I'm particularly interested in (hazardous materials transportation, environmental chemistry, etc.), but then again, I require exclusive Internet publishing rights. I'm also very finicky as to whom I'll buy articles from and they must provide me with their curriculum vitae (if you aren't familiar with this term, I'm probably not interested).

    Some people are scammers, but it is a quick way to make money on the Internet. If you're looking for long-term profit, you'll need to look above the veritable shrubbery of scammers and toward the redwoods of branching success.

    Google and Yahoo did not become what they are now by being scammers.

    O.k, I just looked over the forum rules, and I apologize!

    I'm sorry, I didn't know you were not allowed to do that.

    But, atleast we are allowed to share the program.

    There, I am not using my referral link, I'm just simply showing this fellow that there is a way to make money online and I and thousands more can testify that.

    And why would anyone take so much trouble to get your referral link ?

    Other signs of spammers include: a total lack of paragraph breaks, making the reading of their 600 word blob of text nearly impossible to read; promoting an off shore TLD (.ws) as actually having some cute meaning. WS = "web site", ya right. "Want suckers" is more like it. But wait the claim to be BBB members so they must be legit.

    Whatever.

    Ran a little search on Google and from this thread here -
    http://www.daniweb.com/techtalkforums/thread15557.html

    GDI appears to be some sort of "multi-level-marketing" plan (aka pyramid schemes) using .ws domains as the building blocks. If nothing else, looks like SPAM is its middle name
