    Hello,




    Just like everyone else, I'm tired of the 9-5. I want something with residual income. A few ideas me and my buddies discussed were YouTube, creating an app, or starting a business, such as a clothing line. Which I'll probably try on the side, as well. Then came back across internet marketing, which I had looked into in the past, but not too in depth because i didn't have much money.


    Anyways, now I have around $2k to invest. For someone who is just barely starting to try and make money online, what exactly would be the best option for me to make an income I can live off of within 6 months?




    Any advice/input is appreciated, thanks!

    First and the most important rule: DON'T PUT ALL THE EGGS IN THE SAME BASKET!

    Don't think to multiply those money in a few days. The risk is over 85%. Invest in a website, maybe a niche website, with SEO and everything else ( you have enough found for this ). Wait some months, grow the website and sell it. There are a lot of other things, but this is what I would do.

    Cheers

    There's no straight answer to this bro, a lot of people been doing IM for a long time, and never made a dime, and every so often u see this new jack come in and they get a facebook page and get 1 million legit likes, i mean honestly....IM is a crap shoot. what u need to do before investing a dime, is go threw BHW and look at all the pitfalls everyone else has went threw so u don't make the same mistake, after reviewing that information come up with a point of attack.

    I'll give you a example! when i came into this forum...all i knew was i can sell shoes. I lost a lot of money trying different methods but i had a source of income also, so i could take risk like that, I would suggest you stay at your job until u have basic knowledge of what's going on because to keep it all the way 100 with you...it's a war outside with these search engines and nobody safe.

    First off, thanks to everyone who replied. I'm currently researching on the website to see what possibilities there are. Website flipping, google adsense, etc. all seem like they could possibly work. If anyone else has any advice or something that worked for them, please let me know!


    Thanks!

    maybe don't even think about implementing blackhat methods to start your first online venture/s. i think it's better if you create a website that gives information and try to do the advertising yourself (social media, offline word-of-mouth, paid ads, etc...) you will learn how to monetize websites through adsense and other cpm/cpc advertisers while you are doing a more in-depth research on IM and Affiliate Marketing (CPA). just like other businesses, it would take time and effort to earn decent money online. I agree with GreenGoblin that you have to keep your current 9-5 or go for the business you and your buddies are thinking of and build a website for/around it. Start pure whitehat, learn the curves, apply for monetization methods. It is better to focus on one method than trying out everything and stumbling every time.

    I second this. It can create a great passive income.

    When i first came to BHW i was overwhelmed with all the information and methods out there to make money on the internet, i would highly suggest reading ALOT first. Pick 2-3 different methods and slowly trying to make them successful, this was the strategy i have gone with (but hey lets face it i dont have 2k to spend). Having 2k to drop on IM will definately speed things up.

    Ive only been a member for about 3 months and have gone with micro niche sites, after 3 months of learning and making mistakes some of my sites are starting to see some income, if you stick to IM it does work, alot of people come in here and think they can half do this, because at face value it seems so easy to make money and everyone will tell you that it is. I agree with them, it is easy BUT you have to stick to it and apply yourself.

    PS. i havent quit my dayjob and dont plan to for a long time, i see IM as a great passive income

    I checked out his tutorial, definitely interesting and inspiring, seeing how much he makes. I'm going to keep doing further research on apps.
    Could you explain more?


    Thanks
