    I'm about to open a web service similar to craigslist/gumtree/kijjjiji or whatever it's spelt like.

    One of the ways we thought of making some money out of this is either ad services like AdSense, premium listings and/or something like Amazon Associates stuff.

    I've been searching around here and i'm thinking of using a combination of adsense with something else, using OpenX to rotate them.

    Can anyone give me any advice, details about a small/medium-sized business they own and how much their income is from that and anything you think will help?

    Cheers.

    If i were you, i would focus on bringing in users and building up the database first.

    I already have a lot of people that are interested in it, and it's certainly not a bad idea but i've got to write up a business plan for it first and that's why i need to know so i can enter that information in.

    I'm just currently interested in finding out only the relative data, and what others expectations and income is so i can make an accurate representation in my own plan.
