Seriously Daniel,

Making money is hard. It takes a product that is perceived to be of high value offered to a group of consumers that have some sort of sameness so that they can be identified and marketed to a cost that is less than what you receive in sales. While I think (some) reprint rights type products can be sold at a profit, they need to be sold via a method that is not currently being used by multiple competitors. Remember it's competition that drives down profit. And ebay is loaded with competition for the type of products you're describing. Why? Because it's damn easy that's why! Every Tom, Dick or Harry that wants to earn a few bucks off the net seems to hit this area first. Heck, marketing is cheap and you don't have to create your own products. But the competition will kill you unless you have exclusive rights to a product that no-one else has access to. If you want to earn extra money subscribe to Dien's and Mike's newsletter or get Gordon's "Chattle Report." Jim Straw also had a free report on realistic businesses you could start from home. Their are more opportunities to make money now than there ever have been... but you need to look in areas that aren't infiltrated by others just trying to make a fast buck without doing a whole lot of anything.

Take care,

Mike Winicki
