    So, first... the thing. I'm planning to build a passive income through popular internet and tv products (something immediate, that's very important)... but then, while also thinking about what a stone cold indifference I have to much of what I see the IM world has to offer... you know, the massive and unending flood of hyped bullshit that people make millions from. (No offense to the true gems.) I'm always led to being confused as fuck as to how anyone can grasp and understand how human nature works online enough to profit so magnificently....... and it makes very jealous...... but most importantly it also motivates me, because it proves to me that it is possible to work and find a system that will feed and harvest the shit floods for you.

    So all of this put together becomes another piece of the mystery that is the secret to finding my own happiness in my IM journey....

    I want the most reliable passive income method that gives me at least $20/day and will never need me to step in as the salesman at any point in the process. For every money making method that catches my interest, I read and prepare to drop it instantly and and move on to the next as soon as I figure that I will have to be writing some sort of fake review or promotion or build some fake relationship with the consumer.

    If you don't think that's very possible, that you can't make good money at such a disconnect from the consumer, then you can speak your mind and I'm open to change mine. But I should emphasize my problem again... I really am constitutionally incapable of inventing bullshit and selling it to other people. I'll never relate to it. I have extreme trouble writing persuasively for anything I'm not convinced of myself. I have to believe in it and there's just about nothing in IM that I can believe in. I doubt I'll ever get to know how it works from the perspective of the consumer or those salesmen who manipulate the consumer. All I know is that I see its real financial effects and value... and just want to cash in. I'm certain that what I have in mind is possible to some degree, I just need to search and find which method to test first.

    So, what I'm interested in is a specific sort of system. Anything I can do with $200 that doesn't rely at all or as little as possible on my own ability to be a salesman. I'm looking for suggestions of reliable systems or services within the IM world that would turn my $200 into something that boots me financially now without my need to step in as the salesmen in any form and without excessive risk. Any sort of method that is as close as you can get to a passive income that requires no sales pitching from the investor (me).

    If so far you think I'm crazy and want to try and set me on a better track. Go ahead. I'll tell you how I feel and we can figure out together whether IM is right for me.

    Edit by Jazzc: Advertisement of other forums is a no,no,no... - paragraph removed.

    Good plan? Bad plan? New plans?

    Riskiness is a very important factor for me but, $200 seems enough to have some quality articles written and ranked for whatever product. But ranking processes might take months. I'm thinking a lot about getting a bot or something for youtube and ppd lately too. Truth is, I'm kinda lost.

    So any advice? It's super appreciated.

    You are extremely lost. Don't just throw money at something acting like something is going to happen.

    Plan out what you want to do. SWOT.(Strengths Weaknesses Opportunities Threats)

    See what you think would suit you best. Work on fiverr. Get some experience.

    Then choose a field( SEO, amazon, offline, mobile, CPA, etc.), learn everything you can about the field,
    read books(free here), then spend your money wisely.

    Throwing $200 at something you don't know too much about is foolish.

    $200 really isn't enough money to build a passive income system imho. I've personally built a system that quite literally generates thousands in additional income every year (adult niche sites), but it took thousands in investments and weeks of coding to build AND a whole $hit ton of SEO knowledge and a bit of luck.

    With that said, it is honestly possibly to build a relatively passive system (maybe update it once a month). However, $200 seems to small to really work with. If you can find something that really works at that amount by all means seize the opportunity, but keep an open mind about your investment amount. Maybe save up a bit more and you'll see new doors open.

    It's a gamble. Just like any advertising and investments. The only difference is, we can study up and learn how to get better odds to lower our risk of losing money.

    I would first learn briefly about the different parts of IM. (SEO, PPC, CPA, CPD, Amazon, Clickbank, etc. If you see anything unfamiliar in this list, then I suggest doing a bit more studying before investing).

    so, first of all. i've done plenty of studying. i've been interested in IM for 2 years, ran 3 or 4 successful affiliate sniper sites a year ago and now want to start something new? what's as close as I can get to a reliable shot at using $200 and see something sustainable in a few weeks?

    i've mentioned some ideas already...

    one being buying a squeeze page/email responder sales funnel in a box type thing from an established marketer and set it up with popular clickbank products with (or maybe without) reoccurring payments.
    Plus, find around $70 worth of some quality paid traffic and see if I can make a list. Would that be an OK first step?

    then just find better traffic and tweak keywords and such for conversions...

    i'm sorry I advertised against forum rules, too. i just need real direction, not pep talk.
