I'm a new member to the warrior forums and I've been looking around for the last few weeks and it is unbelievable the amount of fantastic information you can find, everyone is so helpful! I never thought I would ever find such a great community for helping each other to learn these particular skills. Thanks to all the great contributors!
Just some quick background, about a year ago I moved out of the US for an amazing job overseas but little did I know the company was actually in its death throes and so a few weeks ago the company notified everyone that it would be close and I found myself in a foreign country without a job and with bills to pay. A friend of mine here had been doing affiliate marketing for the past year or two and highly recommended that I give it a shot before giving up and moving back to the US (since I love it here and dream of being able to travel and work).
Basically my question is this, my friend not only recommended to me to start an affiliate website, but he also said that we would mentor me through the process. We are going to be splitting the cost for a high profile niche domain. However, all other marketing costs for the rest of the websites duration are going to be paid for in full by me and we are going to be splitting the profits 50/50. Does this make sense? Is this worth it?
Also, I'm a very capable writer but I'm not quite sure how to capitalize on this skill to earn a few bucks to pay bills. I went on freelancer and feel like I'm being taken advantage of there (I wrote 60 articles for $30...), do you have any other suggestions?
