One of the first company’s I ever created was called ForexToolShop. The website functioned as an aggregate for Forex automated trading systems. My partners and I had recently seen great success building ForexMeta and Lotus Brokerage, to the tune of 20,000+ members. We knew the formula and went to work building a place that would showcase the web’s best forex trading tools. Over 9 months we built the site up to generate roughly 25,000 views per month. Our email database reached a size of 50,000, and we were generating about $10,000 – $15,000 per month in revenue.
