There's a number of people new to IM that don't have the tech skills and/or money needed to buy many of the automated tools, but are good writers and can pump out content.
It's seems like a simple solution for both would be to team up. In theory, a writer and SEOer team "should" make way more money working together than apart. For example, why should a writer take months learning SEO, when that same time could be spent writing and being productive?
But like playing an old blues song, it may be simple, but it isn't easy.
Here's the problems as I see them from my experiences...If these can be solved, I think many of us could make a lot more money.
- Equitable share. What's the fair share? Is it 50/50 or should the SEOer get more? Less? I understand this will be different for each team, but where would you set the theoretical starting point?
- The "share" also includes "man hours". How much time should each put in, in relation to the other? Should a writer work 1-2-3 hours, for every 2 hours the SEOer does?
- What are ways to share the profit without one person having control of the money? For example, can a "rotator" be used that alternates Adsense and/or other programs?
- Who owns the content? Can you sell a site created?
- What's expected of each side?
- What are the risks? The SEO has black-hat issues, writers have copyright issues, etc...
In reality, I think the single biggest issue is finding a partner that has the same work ethic, commitment, available time and dependability.
IMO, this single strategy of SEOer/writer teams is likely the single best solution for many of the issues Warrior Forum members have.
Please, this thread isn't about "hooking up", it's about working out a framework to explore the hurdles and issues and possible solutions these teams face.
