A $500 Web Business by October
Toward the end of August I became extremely aggrevated by a rash of local scandals happening in my area. In less than a week a number of individuals got in major trouble for running SPLOGS (Spam Blogs), selling bogus online services while posing as Microsoft, and recieving cease and desist letters for stealing others content. Disgusted, I decided to do something about it by trying to make a legitimate online business during the month of September. I settled on using an affliate program, selling Geek-themed TShirts online (MilitantGeek.com), and trying to leverage social media to build something of value. I`m currently blogging about the whole process; a nerve racking decision. There is always the possibility of failing miserably and having the evidence in front of the entire world. However, even if the project doesn`t reach its goal I think that by at least showing people what not to do it will be worthwhile. And really, with such a low upfront investment there really isn`t any excuse not to experiment with these online models.I`d really like to get feedback from the vast and knowledgable SuN community. What has gone right? Where are my britches showing? What are other options to consider?
