    hello everyone, before i even start my thread i just want to clear a few things

    1- i know all of you are busy people and
    2- its understandable that you cant spoon feed me but
    3- at the same time i also know you like to help out as much as you can
    4- i understand many of you will think i am a spammer or worse..

    now that i have this off my chest i hope none of the members are going to go harsh on me.

    the thing is that i am in a really desperate situation and i need to make 12k $$ in 6months time. i know there are enough threads on this forum to help me achieve that target but there are a few constraints

    1- i dont live in usa , infact i am from what they call a 3rd world country
    2- i have absolutely no resources, no money in paypal that i can invest in domains and hosting (i do have a paypal account through a friend though)
    3- i have a moral and ethical issue and i cant promote p0rn
    4- i am already working a full time job and only have 1-2 hours to give into this
    5- i had once tried cpa but failed infact i'v tried quite a few methods from this forum and have always failed or got banned from the networks

    so all i am asking you guys is to suggest a working thread/method/guide which can help me earn atleast 1.5-2k per month .. i know i wont start making this much all of a sudden but i am ready to wait and put in my efforts

    thanks alot
    p.s. have a little respect for me, it has taken a lot of guts to go about my situation like this, yet i request you not to sympathise rather just guide and advise

    1.5 to 2k is a lot for a country that is not 3rd world. So pretty much you want to be rich in your 3rd world country?

    told you its a desperate situation and i dont have much time, just 6-7months, plus 2k per month for 6months makes 12k $$ which i agree is alot for you guys but if you convert it to my currency then trust me no one here in my country can call themselves rich with this amount, too much of inflation and other economical issues

    I don't want to sound rude but there is just no "Magic" button in IM.

    There are so many methods in money making section just pick one and work on it and you can earn as much as u want ...

    I'd like to make that kind of money per month as well. I know it is possible, but not possible with only 1 to 2 hours a say invested.

    If you are trying to do that with no seed money, you need time. like 14 hours a day dedicated to it.

    If you had money to farm out the work, site setup, SEO, etc. then you could spend 2 hours a day on it. it's usually one or the other.

    you'll need something to start with and if you have no money to start something, you will need to start with free web 2.0 sites. that is what I started with... made $0 investment on a keyword and am making a mere $30 a month with it... but it was not a lot of work and it cost me nothing but time.

    Hi chap

    That's an interesting list of what you see as constraints.

    Let's look at them:

    You don't live in the USA- Nor do I and many others so I don't see that holding you back.

    No resources- I don't agree with you. You clearly have perhaps the greatest resource of all; your command of the English language. That is a massive advantage in this business.

    Morals and ethics- I can't speak for others here but I don't think that many get involved in the areas that might challenge your ethics and morals so you are not disadvantaged by them at all.

    Working full time with only an hour or two to spare- Now there's a problem I think. Most aspects of IM require a time commitment at least initially. Perhaps some better time management can help you find some more time to give to this?

    Previous failures- nothing wrong with that; you can learn from them. Easy to say I know but failure is common in this business. Keep driving forward and stay resolute.

    Your biggest problem seems to be that you think you have more barriers and obstacles than you actually do.

    The magnitude of your financial goal is quite big though within the timescales indicated...

    Where you think ? xD
    You make no extra money from your full time job make even buy a measly micro niche site? what are your expenses, if they are high, then cut them. Move to a cheap apartment or motel. Buy less food, just enough to be healthy and full. if you drive a car, stop it and use the bus or get a bike, in fact walk even. Come on dude check out your expenses, if they are high, then that could also be a problem.

    Why 1-2 hours? 6 hours of sleep can be enough. now you have 18 hours left. 1 hour of eating and resting. 17 hours left. Do you work on your job for 15-16 hours a day? Reduce it to 10 hours a day and spend other 5 hours on IM. IM is not part time job that needs only 2 hours a day to make living (especially in 3rd world country). 2k can be enough for living even in USA for student. You call 1-2 hours an effort? It is possible to manage your IM income with one hour a day after you reached certain point and don't care going further, but starting your IM career requires more time.

    You said you had a part time job? why dont you invest that money into IM, I am not telling you to put all your money into it but registering a domain is only $10 US, which is not that much....

    CPA and niche sites can earn you an awful lot if you know what you are doing with them.

    If you really are desperate, then maybe instead of going for something that "might" work, go for something that will. You do need to dedicate time into this though, time and effort and it will not be an autopilot thing, but you will make you 12K.

    Lets look at the math. Not counting weekends and other holidays, days off, assume you have 4h/day to work on IM. Assume you have 6 months to get 12k.
    Thats 2000 per month. Thats 66/day, and that is 16.5$/hour.

    Your english seems very good. Get Dragon Naturally Speaking in the download section. Write good articles for 5-6$. You should be able to "rewrite" a couple articles in an hour.

    While this may be hard work for half a year, it is a clear road to getting to where you want to be. That is, if you are desperate. If you are desperate, you will have to work. If u start getting more than u can handle, start outsourcing more. You will make more that way in the end as well. Shell out quality articles [which u have shown u can do] and u will get to your goal.

    first off thanx everyone for your motivation

    and i do realize many of you think i'v set my self an unrealistic target of 2k a month but seriously i just wanna make as much as i can in a month so i think i might have to start from a bit less but as long as i can achieve my target in time. also it seems 1-2hours is not good enuff in IM so if i can manage approx 4hours a day????


    and i do believe i can make money off of my english skills. so if i do plan to write articles then how should i proceed? shud i work through freelancer.com? or i should post on forums such as bhw for someone to hire me? and 5-6$ for each article or for a batch of articles?

    At the $5 level you should be able to pick up some article writing work here no problem at all.

    Good luck Zed and keep us posted on how you get on. Hopefully 6 months from now you can tell us all proudly of your success.

    Post that you are available for working everywhere...set up a fiverr account [u will get 4$ only], but in time u will pop out those articles in minutes.
    Post it in BHW once you get some money to have a thread in the BST section. Make sure that in these types of forums, you give review copies to REPUTABLE members. Give bulk discounts. Offer to work on large projects. Look at the BST section how they do it. I think that based upon your english skills, you should be able to charge more than 5-6$, since I bought from a BST here a 500 word article for around 5$ and it was scraped/spun/incoherent.

    Also, what I would suggest is that once you have a nice little business going on, and some free time, start making articles for yourselft. After google panda, the content on the webpage is very important. Once u got money, make small website, but publish quality articles every few days. Make an authority website about something you are interested about and read on anyways. After you are done reading, just reread the article with the program -> you will have an article for your website. Dont try to make money off of it next week. Think of it as a hobby. You would be reading the articles anyway. And once your 5-6 months are up, you will see what your website is worth and how much it makes/day.

    Just make sure u do something you know will work. I think articles will be very good for you, because you write very well. Maybe start with Fiverr. Then open a BST here. Once u cant handle it, hire someone from where you live.

    Read this:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...-1000-word-article-10-minutes-100-unique.html

    And get this:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...n-naturally-speaking-v11-premium-english.html

    If you can write quality articles, and 1000 in 10m+10m for editing/reading etc. Then you are looking at 30$ an hour if u sell a 1000 word article for 10$. That would be almost twice as much as u need. But start. Start now. Go on Fiverr. Register there. See what others are selling. Offer something a bit different/better. Settle for less in the beginning. Make a few bucks to open a BST.

    Here you go:

    1. Keyword Research - google keyword tool - find 'buying' keywords with high searches per month - make sure you've selected 'exact' searches.

    2. Analyze top competitor for keyword - use SEO Spyglass - free version - if they have under 1000 backlinks with low PR you can take them..

    3. Create a free web2.0 on wordpress or similar site and create more/same amount of content as your competitor.

    4. Manually write 50 articles of 500 words loosely based on your keyword.

    5. Manually make 50 web2.0 sites and submit an article to each.

    6. Put 2-3 links in each web2.0 with 50% keyword anchor text, 30% extended keyword anchor text and 20% random/url anchor text

    7. Build a pyramid of links to these web2.0 using private networks/wikis/article submission etc etc - many many methods are shared on these boards..

    8. See yourself start to rank on Google for the keyword and then hopefully profit by selling advertising space or products from clickbank..

    That's the IM game in short - it takes a lot of time but you may get lucky and find and awesome keyword.. Normally you would need to have many sites to start making big money but who knows you might find an awesome keyword..

    Not being from America is a bonus if anything - they poison the food and tax the fuck out of everyone - also the beer sucks. :)
