Default Accountant With Time But No Means...

Hi all,

Iím an accountant with 5 years experience in corporate finance: researching, business planning / forecasting and business improvements. Iím looking to start something modest. I donít have any book keeping or payroll experience so thatís not a viable option for me. From my research days I was contemplating a website that could assist SMEís, accountants, professionals etc to conduct market research. The idea being to provide a database of credible, up to date and free links to various sources for market research purposes. I donít know what people think of this idea and any other options available....

Thanks

I think it is a good idea. However how do you plan to make money from this site?

Or are you just doing this for fun. Anyway, it seems that you have a lot of experience in this field. I am sure that you will provide people with excellent information and tips.

This is where I'm getting slightly stuck. I would ideally like a modest second income. I was thinking revenue streams of...

1 - subscriptions for a fixed period of time e.g - £XX for 3 months etc
2 - renting pages to market research companies
3 - advertising

Any ideas on other sources and if the above appears reasonable / people willing to pay?

Ta

You can do affiliate marketing. You might be able to advertise accounting products on your website.
