    Hi, I'm new here, I came here to learn how to make/earn money. I've read through a few post on how to do so, And seem to have found it so complicated to understand. I hope I don't sound stupid or anything lol.. I don't suppose there's anyone out there who would be willing to help me to understand, or any money making idea's/tip's that won't completely confuse me rofl. :)

    Thank you for taking the time to read this,
    LaydieeeB

    "The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step" - Lao Tzu

    Search Google and our forum with the following words:

    - Internet Marketing For newbies
    - Keyword Research
    - Wordpress
    - Web Traffic (You need to learn Search Engine Optimization/Link Building for web traffic)
    - Affiliate Marketing
    - Info Product Creation

    Give yourself a couple of months to absorb what internet marketing is about.
    Become familiar with the terminology. Read, read, read. Like any business,
    internet marketing takes some time to learn. It is not "rocket science", but you
    do need to immerse yourself in it for a period of time. There is no way that you
    can effectively do it without at least an abbreviated foundation.

    By the way, welcome to Black Hat World! :)

    Cheers! - "WizGizmo"

    Hey, thank you for the reply :)
    And I understand it will take some time and research. Which is partly why I joined Blackhatworld. And what do you mean by an
    ''abbreviated foundation''?
    Did it take you a long time to understand all this kind of stuff, and I seem to see so many people who know what they are talking about and they seem to be doing what they do very well, it just make's me wonder how on earth people learn this sort of stuff lol.
    And thank you! =D

    Hello LaydieeeB:

    By "abbreviated foundation" I mean that there is no quick way to learn the basics.

    It took me about 4 months before things started to completely make sense to me.
    I am sure that some people can learn it faster than that and some people will take
    longer than that. It depends on how deeply you immerse yourself into it. Also, you
    can never stop learning, since the game changes all the time.

    Best of Luck! :)

    Your New Friend - "Wiz"

    I've been reading into internet marketing, and I saw this: There are too many ways to make money online. You can make money from Adsense, PPC ads, Affiliate Marketing, Ebay, MLM etc.

    So your 3rd crucial step is to decide on the business model that you want to adopt.


    If you want to make money fast, one way is to become an instant guru!


    I've seen many newbies who position themselves as a guru and start teaching people how to make money online. It works! Many of them who ‘dare' to pretend to be a guru eventually becomes a real guru.


    As a guru, you need to have your own website, your own product and your own affiliate program. That's why I invested money to create the free M.Y.O.B List Builder Script for our members. Make this script work for you and you'll become an instant guru overnight.

    Is this all correct or am I reading stuff that isn't even relevant? lol. thanks for all of your help :)

    The only problem with your "Instant Guru" theory is that someone who
    is truly knowledgeable about internet marketing might call you out and
    expose you as a phony. Then there goes your reputation! . . .

    Btw, how do you actually earn money by doing the guru theory? Like by getting people to visit my site how does that earn money?
    Thats what I can't understand :(

    Thanks,

    You have to get into the circle of other gurus. You do that by promoting their products
    and hanging out on their blogs and "kissing their asses" in general. Then, after you
    have developed a relationship with them by promoting enough of their products
    and attending enough of their seminars, maybe they will start promoting your products
    and dropping your name. It's basically a "good ol' boys club" - a clique, per se. :)

    You start getting "fame-by-association".

    I don't get how affiliate marketing works. It mentioned email marketing and I've read quite a bit about gaining email addresses and sending out automated emails. I saw this website ''Web Traffic Marketing'' But I don't understand how you make money from gaining email addresses and sending emails out. Like what it's purpose is lol.

    Thanks for your replies :)

    That has to do with building your subscriber list through "permission marketing".

    Basically the steps are as follows:

    1) You have a website where you are offering a free ebook if they
    sign up with their first name and give you their email address.

    2) Then for a period of about a month or so, you send useful
    info to those who have subscribed to your list. You give them
    the best possible tips and tricks in whatever niche (category)
    you are working with. In other words, you start building trust
    and developing a relationship with those on your email list.

    After a period of time, you then recommend a product for them
    to buy and you have a link for them to click to see what it is. The
    link you give them is your affiliate link. So, if they buy from that
    link, you make a commission from the sale.

    The above is a very simplistic way of explaining email marketing to you,
    but basically what it comes down to is, if you can build a big email list
    of people and develop a trusted relationship with them, you will have
    customers for life. As they say, "The money is in the list."

    List down all the things that you can't understand then do some google search. Keep on reading and try to organize all the information you have gathered until they make sense to you. If you still can't comprehend it, I think video tutorials would be a great help.

    PLR stand for Private Label Rights. When you buy an ebook or
    an article with Private Label Rights, you can edit it however
    you wish and put your name on it as the author and sell it.

    And you get to keep all of the profit! :)

    NOTE: I hope I have been helpful to you, but as a moderator of
    this very large forum, I need to perform a number of duties.
    Remember . . . one of the first steps in internet marketing is
    to learn how to independently research whatever it is you need
    to know. Use our search engine and Google's search engine
    whenever you see a term that you need to define.

    Best of luck to you! :)
