    This one is for all you n00bs out there who keep posting, "How do I make $10,000 in one hour".

    OK, let's start it off first off - there is no such thing as overnight cash in IM. It's just not happening. If you are that desperate, then grab a ski mask and go rob a liquor store.

    There a million ways to make a buck online, but to learn what works and what doesn't is more of an art than a science. Once you realize that IM is just like a real business, where it takes time to create a process that makes you money, you will actually start to make money.

    Remember to have fun with what you're doing - if it's too much of a chore than stick with the "traditional" ways to make moolah.

    This isn't really a guide or do you come with more details later?

    But it is true though, im'ing is about patience, it can be hard and frustrating trying to make money online, but if you are willing to work and wait for it you can potentially make some good money online. But I do agree it is not a guide, the thread name should have been thought out a bit better. But thanks for the post.

    The advice is 100% correct.
    But I also have to say that it may not always be newbies that ask such a question.
    For instance [well I did not ask that precise question myself] I just posted a plea for help that is literally an overnight emergency.

    I am online since 1993, and have a viable business, and made good money the last 5 years. Yes it took me a long time bootstrapping to get to that point. But I hung in there for the life of me and it paid off.
    Then, a disaster stuck - a thief or probably a ring of thieves cleaned out my account [lots of money] and I was left with a little over lousy 6 bucks.

    Nearly fatal for me - yet again I hung in there for the past few months but have been unable to recover really, largely due to the economy in the US and the nature of my business [I don't have a "daily consumer need" product but rather what people buy when they have extra money].
    So, I started quickly another business that fit's the economy just perfect. But as we all know nothing comes overnight there either.

    And now I face a terrible situation and need to generate traffic and funds very, very fast -
    moral of my story:
    sometimes there are situations where even a non-newbie cracks their head how to generate large sums "overnight".

    Especially when your and others entire live depend on it. :(

    Misleading thread title. While this advice is completely valid, I don't understand the motive? Is it to tell the n00bs asking for $10,000 in an hour to be quiet? It won't happen? This just seems like a statement that doesn't leave much room for discussion, only validations

    I generally believe it just a quick start guide to understanding im'ing, and it is true you can't make money overnight, well not unless you are e-horing anyways, but it is true people say I am going to go into internet marketing and then expect to make thousands overnight, and we would love for this to be true but unfortunately it is not, if it was true we would all be millionaires by now.

    OK, perhaps using the term 'guide' wasn't appropriate. Maybe the better terminology here is 'guideline'.

    My motivation for this post is to just lay the facts bare on the table: IM isn't a get-rich-quick scheme. Lately, there are way too many people begging for somebody to give them just that.

    I know when I started, I wish somebody had told me IM was a process, not the Holy Grail that many of us foolishly believe.
