    Hi everyone, as you can tell im a noob at all this :S but i guess you all was at some point, anyway i stumbled upon this site and it seems there are some good ways of making money online.....and i just wondered if anyone can give me any tips at how and whats the best/easiest for a noob like me, and if it really does work?

    i own a couple of domain names, and have tried parking them but make very little as i have no traffic, is there ways i can up the traffic??

    ive also tried uploading files to fileserve and trying to get people to download them from forums etc, but made like 7p in two days :(

    so i guess im running out of morale and need some belief that you can make money online lol

    any help would be appreciated :)

    I came across this site whist researching for my own business: Video Games CV and I think I might have some valuable contributions to make that will help you guys out.

    I will go on to explain a bit more about what I do and how I do it, but firstly and probably most important - When starting your own business find a subject matter that you really love and have relevant skills & experience in. You should never think of your business as just a way to make money - you should have a genuine passion for what it is that you are doing!

    I come from a Sales & Recruitment background, I started out in retail and worked my way up to a dual role of Mulit Site Senior Support Manager & A Regional Recruiter for 50 stores with a UK National Games company. I then moved in to Recruitment and eventually found myself back in Video Games as a Video Games Recruiter. I discovered this is where my passion lay and that I was really good at it. I left the UK in Feb 2009 and in Nov 2009 I started my own Video Games business.

    I now specialise in sourcing Video Games Experienced people, I provide an advise service whereby I help people make the most of their skills and experience, I give advice on their CV's/Resumes and I also work with Deveopers & Publishers Worldwide helping them find suitable candidates for their vacant roles.

    My business is growing however it has taken a huge amount of time & effort. I might work from home but I still work 7 days a weeks and between 8 - 10 hours a day, in the beginning I was pulling 14-16 hours a day, just to get it off the ground. However, it has paid off because I now have a database of 500 Experienced Video Games Individuals!

    I put the hours in to my business because I really want it to work - why? Because I love what I do! I love Video Games, I love the people who work in Viceo Games! Over the months I have built up a fantastic network, these people have become my friends - we email bak and forth almost daily, and as well as giving them advice, I spend a huge amount of my time motivating them and encouraging them and in return I get emails of thanks which gives me that 'warm fuzzy' feeling :) Also, these wonderful people refer their friends to me so that they can benefit from my skills & experience. I do make a small income from my business, my advice and support always comes Free however I charge a small fee for Rewriting CV's/Resumes. At the moment I am not making enough money to pay my bills however I am sure given time this will happen, however making money was never my first priority, it was doing a job that I loved and am good at.

    To be able to continue growing my business I did however need to make a suplimentry income to go along side as no one can live off of fresh air, so I have also signed up to an affiliate scheme with Teamwork Revoulution. Like most people on here I am very wary about these programmes and I could not afford to pay anything upfront. What struck me about this Programme was the 14 day Free Trial.

    So what I did was this: I did not sign up to TWR straight away, I saved the page to my favourites. I then set about building a database. Now I was lucky enough to already have a database of 500 however, although I have shared this information with my Video Games CV friends I am not going to target them as I do not want to comprise the business that i so love and enjoy. So after sharing the information with them, I have placed a link on my website and will leave it up to them.

    So I had to find my target audience, now this is hard and does take time. What I did is I decided on my company name - Money Inspired and then I set up a Linkedin account (business network Worldwide) using my company name and I made a business page and a group. I also set up a Facebook account and done the same and a Twitter page. This took me about 2 hours to do including writing my profile, but once you have done one you can then copy and paste. Then I set about inviting people to join. There is no point just inviting anyone, what I did is I went to google and put in a series of search words & sentences, so for example :work from home. :make money online etc... it brings up alsorts and takes while to sift through but you will soon have a list of companies. Then go to linkedin and facebook put company names into search and it will bring up the people who have listed themselves as working for that company (not the one you are recruiting for) then add them to join you. This is your target audience, they are people who have already expressed an interest in working online.

    So once I done that, I then set about wording my email that I was going to send out. So now I was ready to join workteam revolution, so back to my favourites page and joind up for FREE for their 14 day free trial. I designed my website for this project using the tools that this programme offers, which is Free Unlimited Web Hosting, Free unlimited Web sites, Free unlimi
