    Hi guys. I've been lurking here for months trying to form a plan of attack to make a few $ per day. It has become a lot more serious now, as I found out Friday that I'll be made redundant by April. Sadly the measly payout I will get will just about cover my credit card debts.

    Do you guys think that's realistically enough time to generate a regular income of appx $2,500 a month? I doubt it, but I'll try anyway.

    Most likely best start for noobs seems to be Amazon + authority blog and maybe twitter/IG + CrackRevenue. Once I get started I will start a journey.

    Any thoughts welcome.

    Joe

    Its a big ask to earn that much per month in that time but I guess it depends on your skills. Anyway, the only way to find it is to get stuck in and try. Maybe try a couple of the things that you have suggested but dont take on too much - better to find a good guide / case study / method on here and then try to follow it whilst maximizing the amount of effort you put in. that will give it the best chance of success. If you just get one thing working and you generate a small amount from it then at least you have something to work with and you can hopefully scale things up or repeat with another niche.

    If you are dedicated then you should have enough time to build an online business to replace your income. It won't be easy but it is doable.
    Start making plans now and take action immediately, your first couple of sites will probably fail but by Xmas you could be making some money.

    Hi Joe, I'd say (unless you have money to burn to learn) get yourself a proper job and play this game in the evenings and weekends. If you have money to spend don't try and set something up yourself. Look into buying websites that are already making money and invest in an income.

    Thanks for the support guys.

    Rudy - that advice makes sense to me, although I was expecting people to say do it yourself. I've already been learning all I can but it would make sense to have at least one ready made site earning some money while I learn.

    Also - I could get a part time job if I already had a partial income from IM.

    It really depends on hard your willing to work and what experience you have if you have experience doing one thing online start with that.

    Dont expect cash pouring in, take the advice above, make IM a hobby at first if you dont have the money to invest, just play around at nights and in your free time first until you get the hang of it and see what works and what not.

    After you see your first success than devote more time and scale up.

    Good luck

    With all due respect, if you are new to this I would steer clear of buying sites with a ready made income. Too many newbies get scammed this way.

    Better to start building something yourself as you will learn as you go then.

    Thank you!

    I have zero IM experience, although I have set up WP blogs in the past purely as a hobby.

    Any tips on how to buy/where from without getting ripped off?

    I second not buying things online without knowing what you're getting into. I would look at the different sections in this forum, they are really informative already while being free of charge. There are some holes you have to fill in yourself here and there, but generally most of the information works very well and is still very relevant today. Good luck!
