    hi everyone, i have been taking a look around BHW for the past couple weeks and i have to admit that i am very impressed with all the information that is posted regularly on this forum. I have finally decided that i wanted to start IM. I'm looking for advice on where to start as i am trying to achieve wonders over a long period of time. 100$ a day would be something i wold definitely be interested in. I will be working hard for this and i will not give up even if times get tough and i will post my journey here.

    So to all the members out there, what is the method that has given you the best success? I will be mixing methods to make my own and get the best conversion rate possible.
    Thank you to everyone that will reply and help me out.

    Cheers.

    I'd say try getting some skills first.
    Try learning some coding. Maybe PHP/Java or stuff like that.
    If you learn Java you can create basic apps, bots, stuff for PPD/PPI. Lots of guides
    on this site for stuff like that.

    You can also try learning web dev (as in javascript, PHP, HTML/CSS) and on top of that
    you would have to learn SEO to rank your sites. A good site to learn web dev
    would be http://codeacademy.com.
    If you are going with the web dev thingy then you can do a couple of things. You can work for yourself
    and rank for small keywords and make money out of that by affiliate marketing or make adsense sites.
    If you are inventive you can even try making plugins or modules for CMS systems like Wordpress.

    Sorry if this is a bit of a messy post, I am just throwing ideas out there.
    If you are good in coding or looking to get into SEO i'd like to work together with you.
    Actually in sort of the same position at the moment. Well not with the coding but with the SEO part.

    Goodluck :).

    P.S. the journey threads are also very helpful (if you filter through some of the comments).

    Ok I am going to give you some advice from personal experience that I wish I knew.
    1. The best investment I have ever made was buying some level 3 yahoo answers accounts on fiverr
    2. Try out methods that are free then pour your cash into what worked for you
    3. Read up as much as you can on BHW it will help you in the long run
    4. Have fun! Do what methods interest you.

    I am also new here as you (maybe for a month). What i will prefer to you is start to read as much as you can here on this great forum. After that you have to find an idea and start to work on it. Do not expect to earn money from the first day that is a big mistake and it leads to disappointment. So first read take knowledge, second choose an idea and for the end start working on it.

    If only it was as easy as wanting it ;)

    Stick to it, and you'll see success though. Treat it likes it another subject your studying in college, make yourself sit down every day and read, implement , and analyze your work. Even when you don't want to, do it, because it will pay off one day.

    And since I'm also in college like you, one thing I'll warn you about, when you tell people about IM and making money, they will all be skeptical and critical, but don't let it get to you. The same ones who chided you about will be the ones begging you to show them how to do it once you make money.

    Welcome to the club
    Well the thing that worked for me in start was selling services, anything from graphics, article writing, proof reading, videos, testimonials, you can start on fiverr, and other freelancing site

    The best thing is that you start making couple of which will help you fund your main projects plus will be a big motivational source
