I am having good success with freelance sites over the last three years. I want to take the next step now: create my own products and services, with the goal of generating stable cash flow, so I can enjoy other things besides programming - I very badly want 6 packs :-).
What is stopping me is not having the skills to design and do Internet marketing. Basically I don't know how to sell. I have some product ideas that I think the market needs because I have been in touch with numerous clients. I can do the product but I don't know how to sell it.
So, I am wondering if it would be a good option for me to find a Internet marketing guy as partner who will help in shape the product better, promote it and sell it?
What are the risks of taking on a partner? Is it worth pursuing?
If any of you guys could you tell me the place to look for partners, I would appreciate it.
