    Wow guys, this forum is great but ya know I'm still suffering from information overload!

    I would love to start making some online money cos God knows I need it!

    I have been making some money from the eBay affiliate program sending emails re wanted items to posters on Craigslist but the return isnt worth the effort.

    I am tied down by the fact that I have literally no money to invest as I need every penny I earn so I can't invest in domain names or hosting.

    I have looked at article marketing but no sure how to locate the best markets to go after and seems like you need a domain name for your bio box, or can I use a url redirect?

    Also tried looking at BANS but again it seems you need a domain and hosting unless you can use a free blog, but again I'm confused about this.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks guys

    Gareth

    Blooger blogs, squidoo lens, Free hosting. Build build build, promote promote, and that's it, you don't need money for that, only time.

    BANS is a script that requires hosting...can't run it on a blog. phpBay is another ebay script that you can integrate with a blog. Pushing new product launches with what xanubi mentioned can be profitable. You could also try some youtube marketing...

    Article marketing is a good idea, and you can point the url in your bio box to your squidoo lens or blogspot blog, Hubpages, etc. Some article directories like ezinearticles don't let you have direct affiliate links, so folks will do exactly this (point to squidoo, etc.).

    You can also use free classifieds sites to promote stuff.

    You may have trouble joining affiliate networks without your own domain and a website, so you might start with promoting Clickbank stuff.

    How much time can you invest? How many gmail accounts, social bookmarking accounts, squidoo lenses, blogger/wordpress blogs and blog posts, classified ad postings, etc. can you churn out a day?

    this place will give you free hosting and 3 free .we.bs domains and free sub domains. 50 webs Blogger is free, affiliates are free to join, there are some you tube and social networking threads here that you could start for free. Then re-invest your money. Start where you are and build. You have to fail in order to succeed.

    :) Affilate programs to startup and get some money going. Than save you can get a cheap 1yr domain name at godaddy.com for about 1.99. Research a niche you like or just profitable get a good domain name for it pull some good articles on your topic use the templates they have or upload your own add adsense offer some subscription and get alot of backlinks. Once you get this down you can really make ten sites a week and keep adding to them each can generate you a good $50 a day but im sure you can get it up after applying what you learn as you go. And yes this forum is great and very useful.

    tell you what, I started without spending a dime and made $78 till now from that same free source.

    get yourself a free webhost account.

    I recommend and myself use 110mb.com, its the best.

    another free host i recommend is freehostia.com

    once you register there, you will have to decide whether you want to be an affiliate site or a content site.

    If youre a content site setup a blog or a simple cms such as php-fusion, both are free and can be setup easily.

    write about interesting topics and then introduce them onto digg.com or stumbleupon.com

    I'll give you an example, in my early days I wrote this article: hXXp://w3.me-king.110mb.com/readarticle.php?article_id=15

    when i introduced it on to stumble upon just as an experiment, i was amazed that it got over 20,000 visitors in just 2 hours, and the people just kept on coming.

    This spike alone made me $30 in just 2 hours, not bad eh?? :)

    or if you want to be an affiliate just sign up with amazon or ebay or plimus and start selling.

    there is more $$$$$$$$$$ in the affiliate business but its much more difficult to get visitors to such sites.

    wow, i just kepp on going dont I :)

    Hope I helped :)

    if i did, shower me with rep :D

    I don't want to be a dick, but I just don't support the "no money" excuse. There is plenty of money, it's a question of your work ethic.

    The fastest way to making big money online is to spend money, "it takes money to make money", the more you invest online the more you will learn, and sure you may lose 98% of the money you put in for the first few weeks but you'll soon understand why the 2% is working and can duplicate or expand on it.

    Can you make money without spending, of course you can, I think we all do, but for most newcomers, they don't have the ability to make more than a few dollars from hours of work.

    Get a second job, clean offices, stock shelves overnight, who cares, it's hundreds of dollars per week you can push into your business, and there is plenty of time in the day to work an extra few hours and manage your online businesses. Will you be tired? Yes Will you hate life a lot of days? Probably, but you can be making 10,15,20 thousand dollars a month after your first six months to a year because you are learning by fire.

    That money buys great looking sites, advertising, staff to help you while your working your regular job, etc.

    I don't know, I just think most wannabe internet marketers are full of shit with the I have no money excuse. Maybe burkey has 10 kinds and is a single parent who really can't go out and earn more, but I'd say that 99 out of a hundred are just too lazy to get off the couch and make more cash to grow their dream.
