Welcome Back Fellow Online Entrepreneurs!
More of you are incoming..., asking a lot of Q's. I'm choosing the most relevant ones that answer many Q's in one fell swoop, if that helps.
For the group marketing IM as a volunteer group --- you want to meet with your group to break up tasks, using the phones...through free teleconferencing, form timetables for getting the work done, then re-meeting to obtain critical updates:
*** Who's doing website creation?
*** Who's writing content?
*** Who's submitting to article directories?
*** Who's going to work on free traffic flow?
*** Who's working on videos?
*** Who's working on presentations and sales for the product(s) you're offering?
*** Who's offering support?
*** Who's building the list?
SOLUTION: You will need a dedicated server in order to meet private product demand.
So be careful, start small, focus on profits growing and being reinvested back into the business. Determine now who's going to take a profitable cut WHEN, HOW MUCH, and specify only by signed contracts what happens when people take pay, and who does what specifically. Establish a team lead. This will spare you terrible difficulties down the road often spent arguing in court (for no reason at all because of commonly-loose verbal agreements). In court, nothing exists unless it's written on paper.
Make sure you can deliver to small numbers first, BEFORE you expand your marketing. Expand slowly and gradually. Many Internet marketers explode and quit before they make it to their next phase of business development.

a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks!
A's: What do you live for? Identify some of the niches that would jazz you!
SOLUTION: A secret many top super-affiliates will NOT admit. They buy books from Amazon or Barnes and Noble...but they repurpose the work. You want to be careful about doing this. If you do it, tell others..."Yes...I do leverage books but so should you."!
Be prepared to tell people what they really need like:
Give them free means:
Google FREE website builders...but be careful, these free starters usually lead to paid marketing tools on the back end...and these are things you can get under one convenient umbrella.
