    Hi guys,
    I have been working quite a while, my expertise is more like working with paid and bought traffic. However, I wanted to build something for newbies, mostly my own friends, who want to start out PLUS for me if I dont get any profitable campaigns going anymore...something to make me feel secure, if you know what I'm saying.

    It is quite important for me that the business is:
    - doable with VERY small investments (a few dollars to 0, if everything done by myself/oneself)
    - not dying off like tomorrow whatsoever
    - brings cash like the same day (no build up to some releases etc. pp., like an emergency thing if one run out of cash and needs 20,30,50$ the same day, however u won't get your monye the same day obviously but it's online)


    Disclaimer: I am NOT here to sell something - just so you know.

    I am accustomed to getting very huge returns with the same amount of work I put in, like a couple hundreds to four figures in a day, so sometimes I kinda doubt this whole thing because the amount of work one put in, about 2+ (i think 3 should be appropriate?) hours a day, and getting a very small return like 20-50$ in one day seems to be low..
    Also sometimes it can happen that you wont get 20$, more like 10$ for instance, even though the chances are low the more time you invest in it.

    (I hate to put in hard work and see very little money come in lol )

    Now for real: Do you think this is a good thing/a good method? the other question would be: How much people on this forum are already making like lets say 700-1000$ in a month like consistently (with work, not passive income)? Just to get a feel...for my own purposes :)

    you listed no method at all. probably why you posted this in the lounge rather than in the make money section lol
    sounds like your brainstorming or thinking out aloud

    my question is: is 20-50$ per day for a few hours (it's probably like normal work if you consider the amount of time u put in and the returns) of work "good"?

    You can measure whether this is a "good" method on how you value your time. At the rate you listed, 2 hours of work and earning $20-50 would be about $10-25/hour. If that's a good rate to you, then it's good, if not, then no, it's not. Other factors are if it could be scaled and whether it could be automated/outsourced, which would alter net profit and the amount of work needed.

    Kinda dangling a carrot in front of a horse with the thread title wording. Lots of ppl are clicking thinking there's a method in it with wording like that. I guess I don't fully get the point of this thread since you seem smart enough to know what your time is worth if you've made $xxx-xxxx/day before.

    QUALITY post right here! Thats exactly why I was asking, me personally, I wouldn't do it but the reason why I was asking here in the first place was to get a grasp of what the majority of users think. I am habiutated to much larger scales but thats also the reason why I kinda lost the sense of normalty/reality...

    For some of the people here, I'm sure a method like that that works would be helpful. There are plenty of people struggling online, and offline, who are earning a lot less than that.

    OK, i was asking because 1) i don't how how much the majority on here earns and 2) because of that I wanted to make sure I don't make a fool of myself (people bashing my thread because it brings too less money etc. lol)

    Is there a realistic poll or something (and this is out of curisoity just for myself :D )

    Large campaigns can make you lose sense of reality, but in my opinion valuing your time based on what ppc campaigns are earning is not that logical. Many different things can happen at any point in time where that income stops and then is your time worth nothing because it's not earning anymore? No, your time is likely still worth something to you. At the end of the year if you haven't earned as much or earned a lot, you may fluctuate what salary you pay yourself then you could calculate based on hours worked what your time is worth. If you aren't doing it that way where you are paying yourself a monthly salary or having a steady income where it avgs out at the end of the year, that could explain your confusion of what your time is worth as well. In the end, you have to have some idea whether you think what you're doing is a waste of your time.

    I am sure there's plenty of people lurking around who would love to be able to make around 10+ dollars per hour from their homes consistently.

    Why does it matter what the majority here earns?

    Just go check: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_average_wage and you'll see the average yearly income for a person living in those countries. Now, those are based on 40 hours a week, and 52 weeks in a year minus the holidays and sick leaves, you can pretty much figure what they make per day, working those eight hours.

    Making a fool of yourself should be a small concern, since it's money that is available for you to make. So make it. If you don't need that kind of "pocket change", I'm sure some blackhatter here is not making any money and needs an emergency heart transplant, so before he starts begging for it here, share the method and we don't have to get mad at beggars again.

    Just saying that a little effort goes a long way, and in the time you posted this thread and waited for replies refreshing the thread, you could have made the 50$ and thought about it for a while. Was it easy? Could I keep doing this? Do I feel satisfied. You know what to do with the method if you just read what I said above.

    What a mindless waste of a thread.

    Guy asks if his "method" is good but doesn't even post a method. Based on that fact alone I'd say your method is shit. If you can't even design or articulate a BASIC business plan, I definitely don't see how you can make money.

    As far as $20-$50 / day for a "couple hours work a day" ... again, you're not making sense. You seem to have a problem with details and being specific.

    If the method will require that you work constantly at the same rate forever to maintain that amount of $$, it doesn't sound very profitable or scalable.

    Now if you said, "It's going to take a couple hours of work a day, for 2-3 months, then after that be mostly autopilot" THEN I'd say YES that's a decent "method". If it can be automated. That way you can free up your time and scale or work on other methods.

    If it's going to require constant work to maintain, if it can't be outsourced or automated, then it's not a good method (imo).
