    Hello guys! As the title says I am new to this IM stuff, but I need some cash for a project of mine. The bad thing is that I dont have any money to invest in hosts and domains and this kind of stuff. I have tried youtube + PPD but it didnt worked for me, mostly because I am to lazy to do the things the way they are ment to be done. The good thing is that this period is over and now I am full of enthusiasm and energy. I hope that there will are going to be many good people willing to help me succeed.
    Best regards.

    PS: this project of mine is a PC build, with which I will start a legitimate youtube gameplay channel.

    Good luck! There are ways to get domains for 99 cents with free hosting if you can't afford them.

    You've gotta be kidding me. So you say you are lazy and want someone to give you money? What are you a Socialist or something? Get a job and pay for it yourself.

    I started IM with nothing. I went on fiverr and made a few hundred. Then I invested that into other things. Then invested the following earnings into other things. You don't need money. You need a kick in the ass to get it in gear!

    Good luck with your gaming channel though. That's a real original idea.

    kaylanewett - thanks for the advice man, I will look into this kind of hosting a domain services
    john - I am reading threads for like a month, without any success

    And I want to point that I said that I am not lazy anymore, because I saw what happens when you are lazy. Now I am motivated to reach my goals.

    You obviously have not read enough because if you did you would have made money already.

    I totally agree with you. Thats why I am constantly digging for new information on the forums.

    PS: I looked into fiverr and it seems like a wonderful site. I just need to find out what to offer and how to promote it.

    OP, mere words are not sufficient to express my distaste at your first post on BHW.
    Rather than start a begging thread, why don't you stop being lazy and spend some time reading the forum.
    Who knows, you might actually learn a thing or two.

    Register yourself on forums where you audience "lives".
    Be an active member, share value along with your (quality) blog post.

    It's so simple and it works wonders.

    If you couldn't make youtube+ppd work then you haven't read enough. It is so easy to make money that way, spend a week with a pen and pad (not on the pc) and come up with a few ideas. Ask these questions for each idea.

    1. Where will my traffic come from and how will I acquire it? (youtube, facebook, google)
    2. Why would they pay money for what I am offering? (They think it will make them more money than they invest, it will help them with whatever task)
    3. Why should they trust you? (do you have facebook likes? does your site/squeezepage look trustworthy?)

    Also, if you can't afford hosting etc it will be a lot harder. my suggestion is to earn a litle money IRL before trying to conquer the internet. Do some chores, wash some windows.
