I am new here.
I started affiliate marketing about 5 years ago and made some money($1000) as a student. I was just driving traffic to it but without knowing what i was essentially doing i was more interested in becoming a Server engineer and it went down hill from their i lost interest in affiliate marketing.
Then tried eBay auctions made few hundred dollars and imported few phone cases from china but this venture crashed to the ground because as student i didn't have much money to invest and family members were being negative about every venture i started . I was doing this in my spare time while studying/working it didn't workout in 2008 so i stopped trying any ideas that i would come with till 2010 .
In 2010 i got a domain catching script developed for a well know extension and caught few domains made $3500 but i had invested $7500 so this was a loss making venture .
The market crash has caused me stay put in my job i have achieved my aim of becoming a server engineer within 3 years of leaving university. Now at this point where i found this forum and i am hit myself for not finding this back in 2007/8/9 when i was doing affiliate marketing but hey ho.
My family are very negative about every venture i suggest and now after mentioning eBay few years ago they believe you can money on ebay. They have started their own store.
The point of this post i am looking for some advice .
I would like to create a technical how to book on a niche it subject . I have done the first 5 chapters on this book and i am writing the how to parts.
Should i sell this or give it away to develop a list and sell the videos and other products ?
I am also looking for 1-1 coaching on adsense niche sites and soe optimising .
Thank you for your help and advice (in advance).
