Profession leveling kits - Alchemy - WoW Gold Guide

This gold making method is fairly new. So far I've seen only a few players doing this on my realms, and from what I've seen and tried myself, it's hell of a way to make a nice chunk of gold. This works for anyone at any level, but if you have professions available, it will be even more profitable. For this Alchemy leveling kit in particular, herbalism is a valuable profession to have.

Profession Leveling Kits
You will encounter no competition at all on most realms!

Gathering and Crafting
Profession leveling kit is basically a bundle of items that you're going to sell. This bundle is large enough to take anyone from 1 to 600 in any but gathering professions. To create a bundle, you'll have to either harvest materials with a gathering profession, or if they're not too expensive, buy them from the auction house instead. If you gather them yourself, there's a lot more gold to be made as there will be no costs for you, except the small mail fees.

To make it easy for you to create these kits, I will include the full list of items one needs to get 600 skill points in any crafting profession. There will even be some excess items remaining so people will be more thankful and not sue you because the kit didn't contain enough items.

Once you've obtained all of the listed items, it's time to make a macro that will attract buyers. Some people go even further and advertise their profession leveling kits in the official realm forums. For me, trade chat with a sneaky macro has always been enough.

To make more gold with this gold guide,
it's recommended that you have
herbalism profession at hand.
Pricing will be harder though, as every realm has different prices for each of the items contained in the profession kit. It's recommended that you count how much the items cost if you sold them in the auction house, and add an extra 25-75% to the price. Personally I usually sell each of my kits for 8-20k, which gives me 3-12k profit most of the time, as I buy all the items from the auction house.

Here's an example macro:
/2 WTS {skull} <name>'s Profession Leveling Kits! {skull} No more running between trainers and AH! Level up {star} Alchemy {star} from 1 to 600 in minutes with this leveling kit that contains all the required items + more! /w me

As for delivery, the kit is a bit bigger than any would imagine. It's best to deliver it via mail, starting from the high end items and progressing down to the starter items so the buyer will see the low level items first and can then snatch them easily without filling their bags with items they don't yet need.

Usually only rich people resort to this service, and if all goes well and the buyer is happy with your service, they usually ask for an another kit for some other profession, or even ask you to send kits to their alts.
