    Hi all, just thought I'd write a little something to introduce myself. Firstly my names George, I'm 17 and from England. I've always been interested in making money from a young age (even if I'm not very good at it sometimes) I first started off by buying chocolate bars, fizzy drinks etc in multi packs and selling them to friends at a small markup, I was actually making quite a few £100 doing this but my major issue was that I'd end up eating a lot of the stock, not good. After I tired of doing this, I then began buying items cheaply at car boot sales and selling them on for good profits on eBay, I concentrated on niche items, such as original gameboy consoles and games, star wars related items, these sorts of things.

    After making probably around £1000 or so from this and building up a good eBay reputation, we were cleaning out our loft when my mum stumbled upon her old polaroid camera and asked if I'd like to try and sell it on eBay, I said I would and later that day I'd already sold it for £30. I then realised the camera market was a great opportunity and I started picking up polaroid cameras for a couple of quid at my local charity shops and selling them on for the usual £30 (this is a great way to make some cash, as hipsters love things Polaroid cameras)
    I then began researching more into cameras and found that if you sold the camera with its lens, you may get £15 for it but if you sold then separately you could get £5 for the camera and £25 for the lens so I started doing just this.

    I carried this type of thing on for about a year and a half, in total I made about £3500 in profit but being the type of person I was, I was left with literally £200 or so after spending he rest of it, on a TV, laptops, tablets, phones(at one point I was walking around with 4 iPhones just because I loved showing off to friends etc, being a kid in school making that sort of money, although only small in the real world was a real achievement to me.

    In between all this I also use to sell twitter followers on eBay, I outsourced the work to a guy on fiverr and was paying him $5 for 20000 twitter followers while charging £20 plus on eBay, in about 2weeks I'd made approx £200-300, but two problems arose, firstly eBay kept removing my listings but more importantly my parents found out and made me stop as they thought it was illegal so I had to stop doing it.

    And I guess that brings me to now, I'm just you average college kid, working as a lifeguard in my spare time, I'm living at home still so money isn't a big issue to me but I get around £500 a month from work as I'm just a casual and spend most of my time studying.

    I'm really into my road cycling and have been doing so for a year and half now and I'm starting to race this year with the chance of trying out for a junior pro team if I perform well this year, for me my long term goal is to become a pro cyclist but hey who knows... Well supposedly my mum does, she doesn't think I have a chance of becoming a pro and says I need to start waking up and think of a proper job to do, unlike the rest of my family who are very supportive.

    About a month ago I was knocked off my bike by a car and my wrist was broke so I've been unable to cycle, the driver of the car was at fault and so I'm receiving a rather nice lump sum of money in compensation, approximately £8500, that's why I've turned to Black Hat World, after seeing your page come up a lot on my search results I decided to sign up.

    What I'm looking to do is spend some of my money to make a lot back from it but I'm a cautious spender, so far I've only spent about £20 or so on here for someone to create a niche website for me, if I can make money through this then I plan to order lots more. I'm really new to this game and so need all the advice I can get.

    I'd love to be able to look back in a year from now and think 'wow I turned £8500 into £15000 pound, I know that's probably unrealistic but I can dream, if any of you know of any services or products worth me buying to make money then please head me in that direction.

    Guess that's about it for now.

    George

    Hi George,
    Welcome to blackhatworld community..
    My kind advice you to invest small amount with buying domain, hosting, and learn SEO by yourself and do SEO for your website.
    If you have investment try with some seo services.
    But don't put all your eggs in single basket..
    Cheers..
