    Good morning Srs. Hope you all had a great week.



    My name's John, and I'm 18.
    I've been reading the forums for about 1 month right now. Some days ago I created my account and now I am decided to get to action.

    I do not live in the same country as my parents or my family, I came to the US on a basketball scholarship. Therefore, my parents use to send me some money every month to personal expenses, like clothes and entertainment. They usually send me around 80 bucks, and that is quite enough, I can buy some Xbox games, go out some nights and buy some things I want too.

    However, I'd like to free them from sending me this money, I want to be able to have an independent monetary life here. I've always thought making money on the internet being young as I am was impossible, but I've seen a couple of threads from 15-years old kids, and became very motivated.

    I have tried subscribing to a ton of online surveys websites but the big majority seem to be only spamming my inbox, and the payouts take a long time to happen. What you you Srs. think of this?

    I'd like to see your opinion over these methods: Zeek Rewards (I know they have a big thread on it but for what I've seen I'd need to put a starting quantity of money on it, so I want to know if it would be worth it).

    Fast Cash Comissions. Don't know if any of you Srs. ever heard of it. Researched for the owner and he's a very successful young man. Seen some people saying good things about the software. It's all about autoblogs, right?

    Being a freshman on IM and BHW, I'd like to know what methods you Srs. would recommend for me. I have a kind of successful channel on Youtube where I basically add subtitles in Portuguese for English songs. Would that come handy? I've heard a lot of Youtube marketing by using CPA.

    What method would be the most appropriate for making a fair amount of cash in a not so long period? (No I'm not searching the infamous "get rich in 1 week", I just do not seek a method that would take 6 months to get 100/month)

    I also applied for StrongerAds, I really think I am going to learn a lot from those guys.

    I would appreciate very much any kind of feedback, tips and help you Srs. could give me. I am probably going to start a journal as soon as I get set down here, I like sharing my journey with people who are more skilled than me, it is so helpful.

    I have a Skype account, It'd be great talk to any of you for sure!

    Now I know how the Internet can be really used as a source of full income, in fact, the most important is that now I know that it CAN be used as such source. However, I'm looking for a tangible start, something like 300/month would be more than enough.

    I have very nice skills on writing (worked for local newspapers in the UK and in Brazil) and I am also fluent on Spanish and Portuguese, as well as little Greek and Latin, maybe that would help? I am also skilled with Photoshop.

    I appreciate your patience and all your advice gentlemen.
    Hopefully one day I'll become half as successful as you are.

    May Light embrace you,

    - John Galante

    Well this is definitely one of the most well written help me threads. Welcome to our little corner of the internet. The first thing you will find is no one is going to feed you answers. That being said, your best friend is the search function. My advice is to pick 1-2 methods and stick with them.

    As for zeek rewards, I just started with the program myself to see what it was all about. I posted my review of their auction site on the other thread. So far the zeek rewards program does seem good though. While it does take some initial work to setup nd understand it is easy after that. Still I have questions about the future of the company. For very minimal upfront risk though I'm willing to take the chance.

    Thank you for your reply Sr., I appreciate it.

    Probably that is exactly what I will do. Once one of the methods prove itself more lucrative than the other I may give full-time attention to it.

    How would you recommend me to start out with Youtube? Use my own "subtitler" account that already has frequent viewers (31k+) or just start a new account.

    Also, I'd need to create a blog for that, right? Is Blogger a good choice?

    I am sorry for the foolish and newbish questions gentlemen.


    May enlightenment be your way,
