I was reading Adam Primero’s blog the other day and came across the following
“You probably remember the old subscription magazines that had classified ads. “Send me $1, I’ll show you how to make $500 a month” Do you remember those ads?
9 out of 10 times, you send $1, you get a letter that said, place ads in the back of magazines offering to share your “secret” for$1″
Well – I don’t remember these ads and NO, I don’t have a bad memory!
The reason is simple – I live in Estonia and to my knowledge this has never been done here. I can’t be 100% sure but I read a lot and have never heard of such a “business opportunity”.
As I do with other interesting ideas I wrote it down – “Maybe I will do it one day” I thought.
I am an easy person to get excited about new things but usually I get tired of them pretty fast. It’s about 99% certain to me, that after writing down an idea that would make an interesting start-up business I will never try to get the project started.
This time its different
This blog is here for a reason and if I can use it to make myself do something that is
- A cool experiment
- Easy to do
- Has potential to make some money
- Will entertain the readers at FinancialJesus.com
There is no reason I shouldn’t do it.
If I can use this blog to help keep my promises to myself and at the same time make a little money – I should go for it.
I am going to do a little research and find a couple of newspapers that allow to post some cheap ads. After that I can hopefully publish an ad or two and see if the money starts coming in or not.
I will have to find a balance between how much money I will ask people to send me and how much I will promise to help them make. The sum I will ask for should be small enough that people are willing to send it to me and large enough for me to make some money!
Since we don’t use checks here in Estonia I must also think of a way that people can give me their money. About 98% of bank transactions are made through internet over here(Estonia is the #1 country in the world in online banking). So I need to decide between having people send cash in an envelope or having them make online transactions or both.
I am open for suggestions and tips how make this thing work.
I will keep you updated how it goes. If it works here in Estonia there is a good chance it will work in some other countries my readers are from! The best way to see, how much money I will make with all of this is to sign up for my full feed RSS or subscribe via email.
