Thread Details

I am looking to start a fitness website where people would pay to subscribe and my wife has been looking to get into blogging more and might try to make some money.

Do we need a business to legally do this? I'm wondering for tax & legal purposes.

Why don't you do an eBook on your plan and sell it as a download for say $49.95, and try to get some testimonials from people that buy it? You can add in extra items to purchase such as email support, paid forum, additional menu's tailored for their exact needs, etc. You could even setup paid affiliates where they advertise and sell it for you, and get a cut automatically. Check clickbank.com for the basic idea.

That above would be a basic outline, and you can brainstorm to figure it out to your own needs. It shouldn't cost much to set it all up, and it has fantastic $$$ potential if it really IS a good plan and works for people.

He should get some fatty's to volunter (give them free ebook) and blog about their progress on the wives site and he can comment/make suggestions.

Again, this will fail horribly but maybe some great idea will be born from him trying.
