    I was going to put up something pretty in depth, but then I realized that a lot of members may not have any startup cash or page building knowledge, so I figured I'd throw up a simple Craigslist tactic that makes me about $120-$160 a day.

    Basically it's all about posting help wanted ads in sections like "customer service" "office help" anywhere where a telecommute position could be offered.

    Make your ad look good, something like "We are a cutting edge software firm seeking an experienced customer service rep. The qualified candidate should have moderate knowledge of Microsoft office, email, and excellent communication skills, telecommute is offered for the right applicant. Please forward a resume and cover letter for consideration."

    By posting variations of this ad talking about different types of companies looking to fill different types of positions in numerous cities, you'll receive literally hundreds of resumes a day. Just make sure you include the word "telecommute" in the ad, and also check the "telecommute ok" box before submitting.

    I grab all the emails, wait about a week, and then start sending them a few affiliate offers about work from home jobs, telecommute placement companies etc. I have their name and say in the email that they are receiving the ad because they requested information on available positions in _____<---whatever position they applied for, so it all looks legit and I always give them a place to unsubscribe to add even more legitimacy.

    Now that's the simple way, and I should mention DO NOT USE AN AUTORESPONDER, not only will it basically show the applicant that you are fake, but it will get you ad flagged in minutes. Instead grab the emails and throw them in an excel sheet for mailings about a week later.

    Want to get even more in depth and make some serious money each day? Of course you do, but it takes a little internet and phone work.....

    Many staffing agencies, temp and otherwise offer a referral fee for anyone you as a "headhunter" bring to them.

    So let's you posted your ad in Tampa Bay CL, you'll be getting about 30 resumes within a day from the Tampa area and also a few random ones, but we're only worried about Tampa right now. Now you do a search for "staffing agencies tampa" and no doubt there will be 30 of them in the tampa area. Call them up and say "Hi I was wondering if you offer a referral fee for placing applicants with your firm" Many will offer this, if they say no, ask to speak to a manager and let them know you can send dozens of new applicants each week.

    Sounds crazy, but most people don't think to use a staffing agency, and the competition between staffing firms is so fierce that they want as many resumes as they can get on file. Most firms have no idea how to market online because they are primarily local and don't see the point in doing anything but getting in the yellow pages and being listed with the chamber of commerce. You as an internet marketer can exploit this and make a very nice income grabbing resumes for dozens of cities.

    If you like to keep it simple, the email method works just fine by itself for a nice average each month of about $120 a day. Hope it helps.

    Alright, I posted a little Craigslist tactic that should be up shortly. But antx16 hit it right on the head. We had a news story profiling some beggers here and the bastards were making between 50k and 70k a year tax free.

    Better yet, when I was in high school about 12 years ago there was a bum who used to go around the city in a shitty pick up truck all day collecting cans to deposit. We always felt bad for the guy but then came to find out he had a real nice house, and a brand new toyota camry sitting in the driveway next to his pick up.

    I guess if you know where to get the most cans each day you can make a very nice living, maybe some of the members complaining they have no cash to invest in an online business can take that up.

    1-9 for your Keyword goodluck
    Shitty title,

    I avoided this all day yesterday, as it was none of my business.

    But was suckered in today after seeing how many views.

    Nevarc, I hope you make your post into a new thread as Harrow suggests, that is some good info, and with all cities available will not cut into your profits.

    Have to agree with antx16, seems to work well in America also. Also Nice tip Nevarc. I really don't have a special method, but this is what I do.
    I use RssEvolution to build sites on niche markets and load the pages with adsense ads. I also have some clickbank sites. I link em up. I have some blogs and a few spam forums I post to every day. I take a paragraph off a different page and link link to it from the blog post. I use some software to generate links, also just this week I have been expiermenting with some cookie stuffing also on some of my pages.
    Like Ruck pointed out I also try to help people and answer questions, if I can, or try to help them find an answer. You never know where IM friendships can lead you. Either a customer, affiliate or a referral source. Or just a friendship that you can share ideas and tactics with.
    I have been thinking about starting some different methods and doing more with videos and social sites like face book. Look forward to reading the post. Good thread Harro.

    I tried posting this in the money making section but it got moved here for some reason. I figured that less people would see it here, but the admins are in charge.

    Alright, heres a "method" I use that makes you money basically guaranteed: (btw, this is quite blackhat, and I think most of the ppl know about this one)

    This is as simple as hell, and takes almost no work. All you have to do is exploit adwords' free advertiseing credits and cheap vouchers you can buy at places like DP.

    Go over to google and type in some highly searched keyword term right now. Type in something like "how to make money online" or "fat loss". Notice that the "Sponsored Links" pages are packed with ads. Alot of people (and most of them affiliates) want their own little 120 word message to be shown and seen. Their paying big bucks for those advertisements, and not because their feeling so gracious as to simply just tell the world of a nice little website (and how surpriseing > product too) that they think is sympathetic. Their paying big per click with the hopes of making a profit.

    And alot of the ppl that do google-adword their ads, after the commissions (-) ppc investment equation outcome, end up making decent moolah. So if they can make profits in the end, after sending google upfront their cold-hard cash, paying for all ad costs in full, don't you think you can make some nice money by simple using googles' free advertiseing credits? You'd be a dumbass if you couldnt.
    Even if you would execute a campaign that would theoretically make you only "break even" on your ppc cost vs. sales, youd still be in profit, because you got the advertiseing credits for far below what they were worth.

    I have a friend who I buy $50 activated adwords accounts from for $6. So If I do is make a theoretical "break even" campaign, Im still $44 in profit, and remember, thats only if I break even. Not bad, knowing It only takes about 10 minutes to find some clickbank or other product I want to sell and write a 120 word ad in my adwords account.

    There is a drawback of this method however. I want to warn you ahead of the time if this is new for you and you want to try this out.

    Unfortunately, due to simple human nature, after you find out you can get so much under-real-cost adwords advertiseing, you start to get lazy and kinda careless. And you get lazy and careless really fast.

    You end up not really careing about thinking too much of what the best ad message would be, you dont care about researching and finding the most profitable keywords/products/Max bid value combination, and you dont really take efforts to improveing your ads after they go up, let alone "tweak" them.

    You find some catchy, probably popular clickbank ebook to promote, you just copy & paste in the adword ad they themselves provide you, and then you crank up the max bid to some sure-dominateing value like $3, $4 or even $5 per click max-bid, ensureing you'll definately get premium placement (although of course, you dont pay that much, you just pay a little higher then all the rest of the advertisers). And you know what? You dont care, since you know your going to be making profit in the end no matter what and so it doesnt really matter anyway. Even with top-end ppc bids, your still almost guaranteed to make a profit or at the very-very least, break (truely) even, since you bought $50 credits for only a measly $6.
    Well at least, thats what happened to me. But Im making changes to that now.

    So there you have it. Another surefire method for you guys on how to make some decent money online.

    I make a lot of cash from video marketing. I do not know what to say more. It has been discussed a lot lately, but yet people fail to apply it. You can easily make over 5000$ per month just by downloading, watermarking and reuploading videos.

    Interesting. Haven't heard this one before. Do you just watermark a domain or something that redirects to an affiliate URL?

    this is an awesome thread. there are so many good posts here it's crazy. Thanks to all the folk who shared their tactics. I do not make any money online but it is cause i am all over the place you know, downloading this and downloading that. I made 500$ as an affiliate of a person who tricked the whole group and ran away without paying our commissions. But i was very naive and new then.
    Anyways i am gonna put some of the stuff here in action.
    thanks you guys, much appreciated.

    I like the craigslist ideas - I fell for one those ads a few times actually since the ad was worded just well enough to get me to reply to it. However once I recognized what type of "offer" it really was within a second, I just closed the window.

    The link in my email led me to a site where there were supposedly going to be job listings for a fee. That part immediately killed the mood when the fee was mentioned.

    In fact, I love all these damn ideas!

    Here's an idea I've come up with but I just haven't had the time to try, since I'm working on other projects from 16 to 18 hours a day, everyday.

    You've probably seen those 'leads' websites where you can get 2,000 leads everyday for a monthly fee. They are real leads and include full information, such as IP address, name, email address, mailing address, telephone, etc. These are people that have signed up because they're interested in making money online.

    A marketing buddy of mine, Michael Nicholas, tried using those leads one time, but his results were not worth the effort. However, I think he may have taken the wrong approach by just importing the leads into his regular mailing list.

    Instead, I think you need to send a few 'warm-up' messages in order to build a good relationship, then try to sell to them later on.

    Anyway, here's my step-by-step idea -

    1) Find a good deal for lots of internet marketing related products that come with resale rights. I'm sure you've seen the offers where you can get 150 or 200 resale rights products for $50 or so. Go ahead and buy a good package or maybe even find one on this forum that you can download at no cost.

    2) Go ahead and sign up for one of those lead offers, where you can get 60,000 leads per month for a few dollars.

    3) Create an autoresponder sequence and start out only with the purpose of building a relationship.

    4) In every message you send, be sure to include a free download link to one of the resale products you have.

    5) After the first few messages, in which you've built rapport, you can also start including a sales pitch, either for an affiliate product, a CPA offer, or anything else that you're selling.

    Let's face it - everybody likes to get something of value for free. If you spent $50 for the 200 or so resale products, that means that you can send 200 messages, each with a free valuable gift.

    I'd suspect that most people would stay subscribed and not want to miss any of your messages because of the free gift, so that means that you'll have about 200 chances to sell them something.

    If you import 60,000 leads per month and even 75% of them drop out right away, that still leaves you with 15,000 new and active subscribers every month.

    Now, let's do some math -

    Let's say that just starting out, you have 15,000 subscribers out of the 60,000 you started with. You send them 2 or 3 messages a week thru your autoresponder, so it's almost effortless for you once you have things set up.

    Let's assume that you're pitching affiliate products, CPA offers, etc and your average profit per sale is $10. Of course with most affiliate products, you stand to make more than $10, but we'll use the $10 amount just to be conservative.

    OK, you have 15,000 people and we'll assume that your conversion rate is only 1% on each offer. Since you are sending out about ten offers per month, times 15,000 people, you're looking at 150,000 offers. And at a conversion rate of 1%, that means about 1500 sales for the month.

    Considering an average profit of $10 per sale, that means that you would make $15,000 at the end of the first month. Of course, if things remained like this, at the end of the second month, you'd have twice as many subscribers, so your income could potentially be $30,000.

    Of course, the success of this project would be dependent upon how skillfully you craft your email messages, the level of rapport you build, the products for sale you promote and the desirability of the gifts you offer.

    Do you think this is a workable idea, or am I way off base here? Any thoughts?

    Well it is a good idea but I think it is pretty common! You would have to truly find some great products to catch my interest... Alot of marketers now adays use this method. Some Im sure work though!
