I got started about 3 years ago with internet marketing / online business. I got my first site for about $2k at that time and although I was pretty frightened when it only made half what it was advertised to make, I have managed a decent return since then on that one. Bought a few more after that, made some myself and sold most of them, and am now trying to move up to the next level of buying and selling (around $10-20k per site). Currently have 4 main sites going and a bunch of much smaller ones too. Along the way I've learned a lot, like transferring wordpress sites, disliking SBI!, coding html and then of course the due diligence for buying sites. Met some pretty strange people, but mostly just others like me I guess.
In some ways I can't believe I've only just joined up here, having read so many posts in the past. About time!
