    Hello BlackHatWorld community!

    At the minute my situation is difficult. My job isn't exactly well paid, however I am able to support myself, just about... I've been trying to make some extra money on the internet for a few years now. I've managed to fluke a couple of hundred of dollars, but the majority of my money-making attempts have failed. My main goal now is to make between at least $300 online by Christmas, so that I can give back to the important people in my life. There are 45 days till the 25th of December, so that's around $7 a day. That's not exactly a huge amount.

    If you have the experience and have actually done this, could you possibly recommend any methods you use to make the extra money? This would be greatly appreciated, and would definitely help me out. Just as a quick point, I'm busy enough and therefore can only spend up to 2 hours a day online (however up to 4-6 on the weekends), so anything really time consuming, such as article writing, I'm not really keen on. The number of times I've written quality articles and have had them rejected is ridiculous... I am able to setup and customise WordPress websites REALLY QUICKLY AND EASILY. Also, I've realised that my goal will be reached with 2-3 Fiverr gigs a day. I've tried Fiverr many times before and failed, unfortunately. In my opinion, a gig that takes more than 15-20 mins is not worth the $5 ($4 after PayPal / Fiverr fees), however I cannot think of such a gig. Any help on anything I could do to make some extra cash by Christmas would be greatly appreciated, and will definitely give you a small share of my profits, once I reach my target, as a kind thank you. I'd be grateful for your response.

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. Sorry If I've Posted In The Wrong Category! :)

    Considering that you are just starting out.. EVERYTHING, even passive income, will require time investment. A lot of the newbies on here, myself included, are lucky to even be making a dollar a day. IM isn't the place for quick and easy returns. I suggest you read the forum. Seeing as you can design wordpress websites, apply for jobs on Elance, Odesk and other freelancing websites.

    No one is going to hand you a method, especially seeing as this is your very first post. The members of this forum are firmly against spoon feeding. All the questions you asked have been answered numerous times on this forum. Just READ.

    I find the largest obstacle is just trying things. Alot of people overthink what they're doing and then back out for fear of failing (like what I usually do lol). Glad to see you've tried a few things, and aren't endlessly caught in the "thinking about" phase. I haven't earned a lot myself, so I don't have a ton of advice. But I do hope you find something that works for you!
