A word of caution

A lot of people have made millions on the internet.  Unfortunately this has given rise to a lot of get rich quick without having to work promotions. While you may be able to get rich with an internet business, you will not
be able to do so without a lot of hard work.  

The offers of replicated websites and buy this content and fill your site with it will not work.  Generally the only one who makes money on those deals is the one selling the site.

Promotions telling you to buy and sell ebooks with resell rights and PLR (private lable rights) are often promoting worthless information.  You may make some money in the short run, but you will not build a long term viable business, for your customers will not want to do business with you again. In this age of social networks, word will often spread very quickly not to do business with you.

There are good products out there that you can obtain resell rights
and/or  PLR on.  Check the product out first.  If you do not believe in the product, don't sell it!
