    Could this be profitable?

    I was thinking of finding a nice affiliate product - though I'm not entirely sure yet. I'm not planning on anything stupid like Acai or whatnot. Maybe one of those 'make money packages' or 'insurance.' While I realize that these niches are pretty saturated, I was trying to think of a few ways to make at least a small profit using them.

    So I went to Facebook and decided to refresh the page until I found an ad about something relevant. I stumbled upon this: hxxp://news4online.net/

    What if I developed a site like that? Obviously much more presentable and legitimate-feeling, but still attractive enough to lure people in! I could try advertising it in some places and finding relevant people, and then I started thinking about running a nice PPC campaign or something of the like. I can find targeted people who are interested, bring them to my site, and then hopefully reel in some cash.

    Would this work? What sort of hitches can I expect to encounter in a plan like this?

    Thank you.

    P.S. I'm not looking at this plan to make thousands or anything, you know?
    Just thought that maybe it would be a nice way of putting in a bit of effort and getting some money in return.

    Never know until you try! If you do let us know and will visit it.

  3. Those types of landing pages do well.

    Just note that the new FCC rules may have something to say about it however. They're cracking down on flogs and other pages of that sort, and this method is very similar.

    That was kinda good idea for a landing page. But I think that it works with newbies only. Those who are just learning how it is even possible to make money online. But I guess newbies would be your target audience anyway.

    But you have to make sure you don't miss lead your visitors in any way. That is always the tricky part when it comes to marketing any kind of "make money online" related product. Especially after the latest FTC rules.

    But this is definately a doable project, but you must take great care when you design the landing page.

    Do keep us updated.
