The main principle is simple and a proven business model. I am looking to add a little twist to the way most people are going about launching these types of websites.
Making money with an affiliate/eCommerce site comes down to one thing ranking on google for products people are searching for..
If someone searches for a baseball bat and you show them a baseball bat there is a pretty good chance they buy. I can't think of anything more simple.
Now the only problem is getting to the front page. This is why i am looking to partner with a developer.
Instead of going the typical content marketing route. I would like to focus on developing free useful tools. Software has a greater perceived value then a blog post ever will. This will allow us to create a very powerful domain that we can then leverage to build partnerships and relevancy to any topic we want to cover.
A very important thing to keep in mind. (Google does not rank websites they rank pages.) They will however use the general trust your website has built as a whole.
Some quick ideas i would like developed: Resume Builder, transparent browser, different wordpress plugins, or any software that we can in prove on and offer for free. This is not meant to be some massive ground breaking creation just simple software that solves problems. If you have the ability to create very complex software that would be a great bonus for something in the future once the site gains traction.
If this intrigues you at all, please inbox me with questions and let's discuss further details.
