How to start an online dating site, or a profitable online business and be successful?

Question by builtandsexy: How to start an online dating site, or a profitable online business and be successful?
I’m interested in starting an online business that works. I would consider a dating site, casino site, or other websites that work. I would like to know how I can get stated. I have lots of online experiance. I have looked at many different companies that provide online dating, and casino sites built and read to run. How legit are they, and are their claims for success accurate? They average in price from $ 499-$ 12,000. I don’t have a lot of money especially to throw away in a scam. What are my best options. I’ve done ebay, and a few of the online marketing scams that don’t work. I’m billingual, English and Spanish, have a two year general degree working on my B.a in business management. I’m receptive to working with other people on a new idea that we can market online, have a few ideas myself just don’t know how to get started, can someone lead me in the right direction?

Starting an online business is not at all a great deal!!! However making it profitable is the real challenge for any online marketer.If you want to make money online, that’s great, but you need a system. You need to follow the strategies which are aleready tried n tested & are used by the champions who could make their fortune on the internet. Don’t re-invent the wheel – don’t make the mistake of wasting time and money in developing a product.Because you know nothing (I believe so) at the moment about internet marketing. So you must work with someone who can prove their system – be cautious and careful. You need to crawl first before you can walk or run – the best way to learn is to become an Affiliate Marketer. The main advantage with affiliate marketing is that -suppose the product you are promoting is not selling well due to some reason, you can drop that product & chose something else to sell.In short as an affiliate you are essentially a free-lance marketer – not bound by long-term contracts having a freedom to review / revise / remould your plans as per the demand in the market . (To see the changing demand in the market have a look at these http://buzzyahoo.notlong.com &

There are lots of people out there there — people just like you — who are enjoying the financial freedom that comes with successful affiliate marketing.
