We netted well into the six figures offline for a number of years and then left that to go online for various reasons. We started off with an online retail store we bought, built up over a year or so and then sold at a good profit.
We then made the circuit through various other IM business models with varying degrees of success and have gone back to a variation of the retail model that has worked well for us.
The challenge for us has been getting accurate information online. For us this was much easier to get for offline business models than it has been online.
We seem to have waded through a lot of mud online to where we have found a few of the honest people we can get quality info from.
It is finally getting easier for us, after three years online, to make money online than off and we love the online way of life much better, even with the difficulties getting good info.
Any other opinions or stories on this?
