    I'm a new poster but I've been reading for about a month. I haven't been employing any of these techniques yet because I've been too wrapped up in trying desperately to find work...

    Yeah I know yall will probably say to get off my butt and TRY a few... which I completely want to do.

    My question is what do you do when you have no time to fool around a try a bunch of things? Like when you are seriously desperate for money and failure is not an option.

    Any time spent chasing internet riches is time that I am not seeking "gainful empoyment" ... the bills come and there's nothing to pay them with... I bet most of yall haev been there at some point in your lives. Can't be wasting time getting myself banned from places and losing everything earned...

    Which -if any- methods are foolproof enough to get you guaranteed cash? Thanks in advance.

    Yeah like I said I've been trying. Getting hired right now is tough. I'm still trying though.

    Another quick way is cookie stuffing. You have to understand there is no foolproof method though.

    There are methods that worked, work and will work. You will not make millions but if you put work into it you will make money. The hard bit is finding these methods if you are new to IM.

    Have you got any web design skills? I used to go to my local clubs and pubs and offer to design them a website, host it and promote it. You will be surprised how many places don't actually have one. It might not be much but a quick cash in hand job every other day will actually pay all your bills for a month or two. You can even find a free template and edit it for them. They will never know.

    The other thing I used to do which actually requires a bit of money is:

    1) Buy a small website on DP for 2-3 months the revenue. Lets say $100/month for $250
    2) Work your ass off for a day or two promoting it.
    3) Boost the revenue to lets say $150/month.
    4) Run it for 1-2 months so that you make your initial investment back and generate some stats/revenue history you can take screenshots of.
    5) Sell it on Sitepoint for 5 months the revenue.

    $750 profit in 2 months with a few days of work invested. Might not seem like much but it does work and you can always do a number of these / month.

    I've gone through a lot of methods, so I know what you mean. Not all will make you money. When it came to IM I fell in love with getting money right into my Paypal account or merchant account from the buyers, and I still do. I also like affiliate marketing. In the past I'd create a thread at DP , or at warrior. I'd either sell an article pack I wrote or something outsourced, and maybe a few google vouchers here and there, etc. And I'd sell until I had at least $250.00 build up that day. At first you'll make $5 on something , or $15 on something else , and you'll see a lot of weak people around you get discouraged and show that to their buyers , don't mind them, keep going.

    I would jump from thread to thread just talking to people with the last thing I was selling in my sig. I would man up, and write at least 150 posts shoving my products in their faces every step of the way.

    What I'm trying to say is if you can do this, which I know you can, and really make this work imagine how strong you'd be compared to the rest of the people out there working a 9 to 5 who have to rely on someone else to cut them a little piece of nothing to pay the rent, having to constantly worry if your job will be there in a year, a month, or a day. Whenever you feel like giving up take a good hard look at your self in the mirror, I know I've done it many times in the past, and have imagined what I'd look like homeless, I'd break the mirror and say, "fuck you, I'm not going down like that!"

    And when you make it , and most of your work has been either outsourced or is automated. There will be no words in the human language to describe that feeling; it will be beyond victory. Your eyes will tear, your lungs will cave in, and you will evolve. You'd be regarded as a self sufficient, self sustained, survivor. Most of us here at BHW could probably survive a nuclear winter. I kid you not, off the grid, off the radar, with a kiss my ass type attitude; that's what it's like.

    By the way, nice title; I like Chamillionaire too. Cheers.

    I try to play the sympathy card and start running around and asking every person who I see is more experienced in this niche for some tips and help or work. In exchange I try to offer them something back (part of income, the strategies I come up with later, my services, etc...). And this is not sarcasm, it actually worked. But it worked because of two things: 1) I was committed and 2) I was honest. I actually have shared lots of valuable information with people who helped me as a newbie. I have made great friends and partners this way, although I remember how I was flamed the first time I thought of the idea (though it didn't stop me)

    Go with AC method, read all that people are saying about it, play safe, and this should make you sure money, unlike many other methods who are too risky. Then, when you get a steady income from AC, you can test with other methods.

    I gotta say there is no "easy way". There are quick ways to make money, however usually it takes sometime to master a method, automate, streamline it and scale it to make it easy. But that's the beauty of internet marketing in general is that you can basically create money printing machines or sources of passes income, automate them, and create new ones.

    A lot of marketers have these "how I made $10k in 1 month without a website or a list or blah blah blah" however what they don't tell you in their sales letter is that they have 10 years of experience doing this stuff. After doing it for 10 years they can jump into a new niche and make instant profits applying everything they learned from the last 50 niches they got into.

    The best thing to do is to pick one method, and then make it work. As far as time goes, when I got into online marketing, I was working 2 jobs; everyday from 730am all the way to 1030pm. I would get home at around 1130pm. And then I would spend 2-4 hours just working on my online business.

    If you want to really see changes and see some success, I believe this is what it takes. I know it sounds harsh, but the sacrifice of my sleep and social life was well worth it(at the time it didn't seem so though);)

    If you are uncomfortable with going that far, then pick one method and then make it work for you. I personally picked affiliate marketing because it's the easiest in my honest opinion.

    Make sure you set goals, and plan out how you are going to make those goals. Start small, then scale upwards.

    Whatever you choose, you must work at it until you see results, then modify your strategies to see more results, and then scale up from there. You do this and you will start to see money.

    Here's a thread that I wrote that might help you get started if you're interested:

    Yeah this is good advice. Even if you have to write the articles yourself, there is still dough to be made.
