She is pretty frazzled at what she wants her business model to be at all; I mean she was pretty much all over the place, from a personal blog to *maybe* setting up an eBay store, or *maybe* using ecommerce software.
I really have no idea about her inventory because she has yet to clarify whether she just wants to get rid of some stuff she has or if she will be reselling like the SMC network.
Well, I am not knowledgable about marketing the antiques niche, but I suggested article marketing, Google Adwords, CPA networks, putting ads in the local newspapers and printing up flyers.
She says that she probably won't be able to write two articles a week and when I said that she would have to invest additional money (seperate from my fees of designing her site and scripts necessary for payment processing and fulfillment reception) into Adsense, she became upset with me, stating that what she pays me should be an all-inclusive package.
Because she never gave me any real information she wanted I quoted between $500 and $1300 to have a complete website setup ready to start making sales and an additional $60-100 a month managing adsense and submitting articles to 50+ directories. I don't think that she has any clue what ROI is or what investment means at all ...
Any advice for a stumped warrior? :confused:
