    Money in Profession Kits

    Well i had been considering making a wow profession kit and after seeing the guide on the front of tuj i decided to pull the trigger. It took my about 2hrs to put it all together. I was able to get all the materials off of the ah with the exception of stranglekelp (pita to farm). I had to pick up two recipes from vendors and put it all together.
    My total cost not including vendor recipes or stranglekelp was 2264. I was able to sell within about 3 hrs for 11k and i had people asking me for other kits too, mainly lw.
    IF you have the time i think there's some serious gold here.

    I was actually just thinking about this. There seem to be quite a few people looking for these kits on my realm and I do happen to have a huge stockpile of mats saved up, I'll look into it a bit more. Thanks!
    Goals:
    Reach 100k - Earn an average of 5k per day. - Buy a full set of T3 (any set) from the BMAH

    I really love the idea of profession kits but there is a part of me that is hesitant to try it. I think my main concern is it won't be any more GPH than what I already do with my time, but I think it is an amazing out of the box idea for making gold and I applaud those who do it successfully.

    Well, I have to compete with Namssob on my server, so I don't try to get into that market, but...

    I find that I can select a couple of the more rare or obnoxious skill-up items and successfully control the market and create an artificial floor for them. Like , they're painfully slow enough to farm or collect that few people truly are willing to go through with the time to farm them, making it quite lucrative for me to control the supply and price in the AH.

    Just my two copper.
    I just have started making profession kits last week, sold already 3 of them. All what I can say, is that ITS AMAZING!
    It required just some will to break "mental wall", indeed. GPH? I can say, that its huge. For example, Im selling alchemy kits for 10. Mats cost me from 1,5 to 2k usually (since Im buying on ally and horde side, transferring all mats to alliance) = 8k profit for 15-30 minutes, barking day/two (few minutes, when adding this time together), then helping customer to craft properly for 1/1,5h (while Im crafting another kits).

    Its simple, requires some organisation, but really highly profitable, kinda easy and pleasurable. Right now, when MoP doesnt give us great money making chances, kits are fantastic. I can only recommend it. If you need some help, I can do all what I can to help you making it easier.

    You are correct, the "GPH" is not always as good as other means for gold. But consider this:
    1. If we only ever did the thing with the highest GPH, we'd only ever do ONE thing, right? This is simply diversification. it does take time, but if you have the time, I find it is well worth it.
    2. It's a niche market that takes TIME to get into. For example, you can't just decide to sell profession kits without putting a LOT of effort into it, at least if you want to do it right.
    3. I actually find it "fun". It's more like running a true "business" than anything else in the game. Just like a business in real life, you have startup capital and resources (guild bank for storage), labor (gathering mats), investments (buying other mats), administrative duties (organizing the guild bank, sorting the materials, stocking extra supplies, etc), sales & marketing (trade chat spam, guild forum posts), customer service (handing over the kit, answering questions), and business growth (using revenues to add more stock, buy more bank tabs, etc).
    4. Admittedly, having a second PC helps...I can PvP, play the AH on my main PC, and use my 2nd PC to "trade spam" and handle my kit transactions.

    Contact me in-game, seriously. I am always looking for partners. JC kits are the only thing I handle personally myself, but I have a business partner for my Alchemy kits, and I would seriously consider a business partner for other kits that made sense (BS, Inscription, LW, Eng, etc). The process is simple, you get most of the gold, and I have a great reputation on the server. If you're willing to work with something other than JC or Alchemy, instead of competing, let's work together!

    Nice to get some feedback on what others are doing. Your GPH/Profit seems higher than mine, but it is likely due to my laziness as I will spend more gold than I probably need to stockpiling kits.

    Also, the way I "standardize" my kits is not the cheapest. In other words, I could go out and make a kit right now for maybe 3k gold, for example, but it might only work today based on AH pricing, etc. Tomorrow different mats might be cheaper. So to keep it simple, I avoid the mats fluctuation, and I stick to a list of mats I know will always work, regardless of pricing. This makes my kits a little more costly to assemble, but I know what I need without looking at a list, so it's faster, and....most importantly...my customers are happier because they know they are getting a kit that has already worked for many people before them.

    Im basing on wow-professions.com guides, and in that case, I have not changed any mats in the guide's list, because its easier to keep it and whole leveling process clear and described for customer. That makes my kits already working, and I know that it WILL work for sure.

    Mats price fluctuation - best choice is to have dual gatherer (finally done it on my druid). Thanks to that I can avoid buying herbs for 15/20g per ONE, instead of that Im turning on good music, and dedicating 10 minutes to certain herb, which I need right now. Thanks to buying from 2 factions Ah's, Im avoiding spending loads on expensive herbs, because its hard to meet same prices on both. It also gives me chance to get certain mats just by asking for them on trade: "WTB X/Y/Z mats, paying good" and so on.
    Another way to avoid changing prices is buying all available amounts of currently cheap mats, which are some sort of "deals". I see some herb, usually costing me 2g per one for 50 silver, in amount of 200, Im not thinking much, Im buying all of them for this occasional price. I will be owning certain mats for many kits, not just one. Its good way, if you are going to give this market long try, simply making many kits.

    Even if I see that some mats are hard to farm, I have no time to do it, and Im forced to buy them for high price I know, that even if I spend 500g more on them, I will still receive huge profit from selling whole kit.
    GPH can only be increased in time by having more experience in that market, having good advertisement and reputation, and snatching more cheap mats for really low prices.

    It seems that I can totally agree with you Namssob in this kits case.

    I have recently had a lot of success selling "Of the Ways" kits, I too was worried about GPH, but I have contracted out farmers and my cost/time is low so they are very successful for me.

    You could type the instructions on crafting properly in a letter to an alt. Then you can make a copy of the letter and include it with your profession kit, could save you some time
