How Does One Get Into the Brokering Business?
I've never done anything underhanded in New Eden. A five-percent cut of a 50B ISK transaction is a pretty good income. Hell, I wouldn't even know what to do with 50,000,000,000 ISK. But 2.5B ISK. Sure. That would come in handy. Build me a nice strategic cruiser. Maybe a few more ships. Head into null, start living.
Besides, I don't need to build up rep as a mega-ISK scamming dickhead. I'm already a dickhead to a lot of people, just for banging on about highsec conflict and a certain large highsec corporation. The "goal" of becoming a dickhead is already fulfilled. And I didn't have to steal anyone's hard earned ISK to do it.
I guess the first step is to start off small, build up some reputation in the business. Anyone out there need something smallish brokered? In the 5B - 10B ISK range? A 250M - 500M ISK fee would come in handy.
Anyone have any advice for advertising my services?
(I'm prompted by all the recent news of brokers gone bad. Just seems like a bad idea to begin with to choose brokers who are heavily involved in capital-fleet flying alliances, they can make use of the large sums they are stealing. Me? Again, what would I do with 80B ISK. But 20,000 Tristans? Far better to build a steady income being honest, than screw someone over once.)
