    Let me tell you the secret behind those so-called mini sites you keep talking about that happen to catch lightning in a bottle, and make a ton of money very quickly. They all feature sales letters that cost the merchants thousands of dollars.

    How do I know? Because I've ghost-written several of them for clients of mine. And my minimum fee is $3500. Believe it or not, my fee is on the low end of the spectrum. There are other more established copywriters who won't even talk to you for less than $10,000 or more.

    One last thing, even with an expensive, high-powered sales letter, there are still far more failures than successes. Even with the best of circumstances, you have to get a little bit lucky too!

    I am a total neophyte at this and am still learning. And there have been some great comments here that I couldn't hope to top.

    I read a couple of your posts and thought that there were several opportunities to monetize. For Instance (and this may be wayyyyyyy off) your first article on Quit Smoking Tools mentions several drugs (nicoderm, Zyban, and Chantix) as ways to quit smoking. Why don't you review each of these (there are reviews on the web, i googled it) and link to those reviews from your post. Then in the review, you offer them the opportunity to buy those medications (through your affiliate link, obviously). I googled chantix really quick and found 2 rx programs that have affiliate programs which sell those medications: &

    Again, I am a total neophyte so take my suggestions with a grain of salt, but it was an initial thought. It goes with asking yourself the question: How can I help this person succeed at smoking cessation and be reasonably compensated for doing so? Someone who wants to quit smoking comes to your site, reads the article about cessation tools, wonders if chantix is effective (side effects, etcc.), wants to know more, reads your review (rather than one off your site), decides to buy, your provide that opportunity. Win-Win!

    Okay. This peanut has said enough.

    I don't know anything about those medications - but if they are prescription medicines, I'd be very careful with those links. . .
