I've been reading the forum for a few weeks now and it is time I started getting involved.
I did build a few simple websites about 10 years ago as a bit of a hobby. I taught myself some basic html and I see that now css is used a lot.
Hopefully with a bit of study I can learn css in a few weeks and be in a position to build some nice websites.
My Quick Story:
I will be losing my job in a couple of months. I was a technical sales manager for a Car Parts manufacturer. Needless to say, this market is really struggling right now. I am also a qualified accountant believe it or not.
Fortunately, I will receive a small payout that should cover my family's expenses for about 6 months.
Hopefully, this should buy me some time to start creating an internet income.
The very MINIMUM income I need to make is $5,000 a month. Hopefully more over time.
I have been looking at what niche I would like to target and I am still a little undecided. Perhaps there is something I can do related to my main corporate skills of technical sales and accounting/finance.
As well as exploring that avenue, I think the other niche I am most interested in is the natural health and wellness market.
I am interested in creating a small range of high quality health supplements and selling health information. I will be bootstrapping this all the way and obviously keeping costs down.
Apart from weight loss products, I am unsure what are the biggest sellers in this field. I will do more research etc.
I was wondering what should I do from here. I am familiar with the google keyword thing and that has given me a number of ideas. I know you basically have to target keywords etc.
However, I don't know how to find what health products are selling well.
I also don't know if it is worth me trying to do something with my skills of sales/accounting.
I would really appreciate any suggestions or ideas as my thinking is very fuzzy on this whole thing right now and I am seeking some clarity of direction.
At the end of the day I will get a part time job if I have to, to help pay the bills, but I am rather disillusioned about working for large corporations, where no matter how well you think you are working, you are still the effect of the larger wheels in motion.
Having my own business, ideally one that generates most of its income online would be my ideal scenario.
Please advise if you can...
