Video site Cameo is full of former footballers selling personal messages.
They include a number of former Premier League stars and England internationals charging their fans to send them a personalised message.
It is a far cry from former Everton and Wales legend Neville Southall flogging his goalkeeping advice on an old fashioned-looking website.
Neil 'Razor' Ruddock
The 90s football legend plays on his legendary football nickname to send messages to his adoring fans.
Ex-Liverpool and England defender Ruddock, who has since becoming a reality TV star, is sure to have plenty of amazing stories for customers and charges them £37.50 for a message.
One five-star review read: "Razor, you absolute legend! The video is amazing – thank you so much.
"I can't believe you put together such a fab message on a couple of sentences! Have a good one."
Former England and Arsenal goalkeeper Seaman is at the more expensive end of the spectrum at £111.75.

The ex-England legend does not have the reputation of being a flamboyant character in football, but he charges £135 for his messages – although the proceeds do go to charity.

But the reviews for the iconic striker seem promising.

"Lots of wows from children and adults. Thank you made their day brighter."
Matt Le Tissier
Le Tissier is selling personalised messages for just £30 after he left Sky Sports in August 2020.

He looks down the camera and says: "I'm Matt Le Tissier, former Southampton and England professional footballer and Sky Sports football analyst for 15 years.
"And I'm now available for personalised video messages."
One happy fan said: "Thank you so much Matt! My dad is going to love the message.
"Probably the best present I will have ever gotten him."
It is fair to say that journeyman striker Windass appeared to come from a different era to many of his peers.

He played in the Premier League for Bradford City, Middlesbrough and hometown club Hull City, but was also renowned for enjoying his life off the pitch as well as on it.
Windass twice tried to take his life after his career ended as he battled bankruptcy and now is a champion of the importance of mental health.
Fans can get a personalised message from Windass, who plugs Cameo on his Twitter, for £33.75.
"You are the greatest legend never to have drunk in my pub. Hope that changes one day. Love ya Deano," one said.

"Had a laugh and a joke on video and read my message about my dad's somewhat silly nickname."
The legendary striker made his name as Liverpool's record goalscorer, and he is another one giving his Cameo earnings to charity.

Daily Star columnist Merson is another former England international selling messages on the side.
The ex-Arsenal icon was one of 90s football's biggest personalities, and he's sure to have a lot of stories to tell for the price of £56.25.
Merson, unlike Le Tissier, survived the cull at Sky Sports but said he considered quitting after his pals were axed.
One satisfied Cameo customer said: "Thanks so much Paul, he loved his message and thanks for putting a bit of charm and character to it, you're a lege!"
