    Please provide feedback on this new idea!

    [not sure which forum this would go under so I am posting here]

    Ladies and Gentleman,
    I'm about to embark on a project that I think would definitely benefit the masses and probably be 'fun' to do as
    well for me. It will be a great help to internet marketing novices, those who feel they just can't seem to get
    something off the ground, anyone wondering how to go about making some cash online, and just about everyone for
    some good informative fun.

    Basically, the idea is that I will start 10 different ventures online ranging from making dollars with adsense,
    affliate programs, clickbank, selling your own product.. whatever. The goal here will be to get each one of those
    ventures to make at least between $10-20 per day.
    It will all be done with minimal costs, as in we may purchase a domain name and host it somewhere, but we will rely
    100% on free traffic. SEO, writing articles, and all that good stuff.

    We will also go over those techniques on the website, if they haven't been gone over 1 billion times in the IM
    industry already.

    If all of even some of those ventures succeed, this will essentially enable me to make anywhere between ~$300-600
    per month. Now, that may be chump change to some of you. However, understand that if one is a novice or just been
    thinking about it for a while but hasn't taken the steps necessary to get started in this thing yet.. or someone
    who just wants some extra cash every so often... $300-600 a month is a decent amount.

    ALSO, that is just the GOAL. We do not know if any of those ventures will end up becoming big and make $1000.00/day
    with it.... maybe all of them will become big and another couple of zeros will be added onto that $300 figure.

    OR, they may all completely FAIL and not make a single dime. Who knows. I believe the lessons gained from this
    experiment will be priceless regardless if we make money or not.

    But we will make money. We must make money. We NEED to make money. Otherwise, I will look like a fool! Just
    kidding...

    The website will talk about which venture we are starting,
    I will then set up a website to TRACK every small detail of those ventures. With screenshots of earnings/traffic
    etc to summarizing as much as I humanly can about the particular ventures.

    Ofcourse I will also welcome feedback/comments/questions/suggestions through the website.

    Since this has become too long already, we'll cover the rest on the website once it's up and running

    What I need from your great minds here is some feedback/comments/questions/suggestions etc on this thing.

    Do you think it could work? Do you think it would be better as a blog?

    Do you think it would be useful to any of us?

    What do you think??

    Thanks for your time!

    - Sho

    I'm not sure if I understand the idea. Did I miss it? All I heard was 'start 10 websites and try to earn 300-600/month'.

    Sorry I guess in all the excitement I forgot to be clear.

    Yes 10 websites with a goal of earning that much per month.

    Then I will have a seperate website where I will TRACK and talk about those 10 websites.. 1 by 1 as they are conceived and put through the phases.

    So everyone will be able to see exactly how a website came about, what's being done to promote it, what's being done to earn revenue on it, etc.

    It would just be helpful and a good experiment to put it all out for the world to see. I haven't really seen something like that done before in detail. Usually people hide a lot of their websites in fear of others copying them (and rightfully so I guess). But in this case those particular 10 case studies would be right there for everyone to see and disect and butcher in detail.

    Ive seen this time and time again. Infact I saw something similiar on another forum whereby a member had developed a heap of sites in an effort to generate revenue. His plan was to have a ridiculous amount of websites (something within the vicinity of 150) all making $10 a day, then to simply "cash in" on the income.

    IMO, this strategy is absolutely ridiculous. How can you possibly maintain/improve/develop/debug/service that many websites????

    Id much rather have a few (maybe 5) that offer a valuable service, and create decent income, than have a hundred that sit gathering dust, hoping that Ill make some money.

    It seems from having read your post again that you are more focused on making money than you are anything else. Any business that is soley focused on making money and not servicing their clients is bound to fail.

    Theres some wording in there also that doesnt sit well with me, such as ..."whatever" and "...all that good stuff". Sounds like a business plan scribbled on a cocktail napkin to me.
