    Hi there, I am nearly 16 and I have been trying to make money online since I was 12! When I was 13, I made my own website and learnt C#. At 14, I made £1000 from web design for my football coach - I spent a bit on a Samsung Galaxy SIII :) As my parents couldn't afford to buy me one.

    Since then, everything went down-hill; I struggled to find another web-design job. I tried "sniper sites", affiliate sites, blogging, CPA - I failed every time. And spent the rest on WSO's and got scammed every time!

    This is what I would like - a sure-fire method that I can learn and put into action. I don't care how much effort it will take because I am a hard-working guy and am ready to learn anything! Or finding another web-design job would be great - I tried Freelancer / oDesk and still failed. I'm good at web-design but not so at finding great keywords to SEO.

    Any advise and help would be greatly appreciated. Please don't say I am impatient or anything as I have been online for many years - not playing silly games but trying to add to my family's income. I have been working every so hard! I would be grateful to anyone that could help me out. I will be willing to do anything ONLINE - Please no offline suggestions. Cheers!

    Thank You.

    P.S. If you really would like to know why I would like to make money online, here are the reasons:
    • I really would like a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or 3 - I know I will have to work hard to earn this.
    • My family's income isn't big - and I would like to add to it.
    • I really, really would like to go to university without a student load - I'm hoping I will be able to add to my university fund. I always priorities my education! I would like to study medicine.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    You have everything you need here at your fingertips. Dive in to YT + PPD right now. Create multiple videos in multiple niches, drive the traffic to PPD. Use Cleanfiles or Sharecash. Good luck

    I've tried this already - I could give it another go. What exactly is PPD and what is your favorite CPA network - as there are loads. Thanks.

    P.S. Other suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

    I know I sound like a prick but attention to detail is critical. For example; your thread heading says "Ready to put into Action and Lean". I'm sure you're not interesting in leaning but in learning. Sloppiness on a call to action will give a reason to a customer to pause.

    Your first step is to pick a product offering that you are interested in so that you have a leg up on the competition. Now chose a marketing technique and I recommend reviewing this thread:

    Thanks for suggestions! Also, quoting from two posts above - I do want to learn - I am willing to learn because I have goals that I set myself and I will not fail them! My spelling and grammar is usually fine - please excuse the thread title!

    Also, someone gave me a reputation comment: "get a job at McDonalds" - well you can sod off! I prioritize my education and I do not go to a school that my parents pay 15K a year for just to get a crappy job! I want to get a degree and work as a surgeon. Thank you very much!

    Other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    First of all, well done for having the drive not to give up. Hanging around the "Hire a freelancer" section will give you a lot of job opportunities.


    If you're really looking to be a long term web designer, I'm sure I could help you out. However, you say you want to prioritise your education so that causes a few problems as you can't be designing websites while looking through a microscope at some cheek and onion cells.


    If you want money on the side while studying to become a doctor in the future then article writing is probably the easiest and most secure place to start. You're a native speaker so it's not hard to pump out articles just like you had to do for your GCSEs I'm sure.

    Being a web designer will be tricky if you don't have much time. That's another reason why YT and CPA would be a good idea but you're not too keen on it so, go with the article writing to begin with.

    You're welcome. To sell here, you'd need to make 100 quality posts, have been a member for three months and donate $116 (If you're in the UK you have to pay VAT on the normal $97 fee). However, you can pick up article jobs in the HAF section without upgrading to Jr VIP.

    PPD means Pay Per Download and literally means exactly that. You post a file and every download that it gets you get paid because the user will have filled out a survey of some sort.

    Here is a suggestion OP,
    a simple one.....
    go with what great advice kelloggs has given you,
    and start to ACT on it,
    dont wait until many other opportunities arise,
    or else you will fall into the information overload syndrome,
    and be paralysed by over analysing everything,
    rather than taking action AND doing.

    trust me, I am not trying to be rude,
    but if want to be a success,
    then focus on one thing at a time,
    hence why i may appear blunt - to give you advice.
    Cheers

    Funny how you placed a new phone above helping your family and going to university, while you have an SG3..

    Well no, it's not funny, it's quite depressing.

    Would you share pirated software? Or would you go with stuff that is actually free for anyone?
