Anyone have a profitable website?

Postby chanta76 » Sun Jul 13, 2014 6:30 pm

I been checking out the warriorforum and trying to see if I can get into online business . Right now I work in real estate but like to do something else. Wondering if anyone is actually making money online.

There's a thread in General Discussions right now from a guy claiming to pull $400 a day with a website. Maybe you could ask him...

But seriously, if you can find a niche, or buy a profitable existing site, it could work I guess. I haven't gotten around to doing a site. I would avoid blogging unless it is what you really love. I make just a tiny amount online, all from my writing.

It's VERY hard these days. If I was starting out now, I'd focus on building my career and building a cash warchest in readiness to go bargain hunting in the next economic downturn.

If you're geeky, buy a Raspberry PI and start learning how to create the internet of things.

But back to websites, and in the last month I've had a load of sh1t to deal with:

1. Hacker targets my forum and I nearly get chucked off of Hostgator.
2. Permanently banned from PayPal for not realising they changed their rules regarding dating sites in 2011.
3. Fraudster steals my forum and sets up a clone of my forum but using THEIR affiliate links!

I wonder if Winston has to firefight similar issues?

Just out of interest, what changes were those?
