    I know this question is asked everyday, but I've been researching like crazy and noticed most of these methods won't get me any results. I was wondering if anyone knows any new ways to make money starting now? I will start now and split what ever I earn with it 50/50.

    Go to another forum if you can't find anything on here that will make you money.

    How do you know this?

    How many have you tried?

    What did you do?

    Did you ask questions about what didn't work?

    Did you just blindly follow "instructions" without putting any thought or work into spinning things in a slightly different direction?

    How many TIMES did you try each method?

    Did you try one ad on craig's list and decide "Craig's List doesn't work."

    I guess there's about a 1/1000 chance that you actually applied all these methods, with real dilligence and forethought and true effort and came up empty handed, but if that's the case, then you don't need a method - you need a mindset.

    You have to spend time learning not just the A, B, C's of marketing methods, but also the psychology of surfers and buyers. You can't just spend 5 minutes hacking together a 150 word crap article on Squidoo and expect mountains of traffic. You can't just copy and paste someone else's verbiage into a chat client and consider yourself an e-whore. You can't just reupload one video into Youtube and write off youtube as a traffic source.

    There's a reason why all the methods here work. It's marketing 101.

    Step one: find traffic. Go where a lot of people hang out. Youtube, Yahoo Answers, Myspace, Craig's List.
    Step two: entice them by making them believe they're going to get something they want if they do something you want.
    Step three: tell them what you want.

    Rinse repeat.

    Send Dan08 a check. Just for the avatar if nothing else.

    Like a few others have said, look around the forum... there are so many different methods to make money it's ridiculous. Find a method that suits you, stick with it and don't give up. Good luck

    spend no more than one day finding one good idea in this forum, then stop looking and concentrate on implementing that idea, do not return to the forum until you've made atleast a dollar, otherwise you will get lost and keep on looking and will not produce anything.
    Moral of the story do something and stick to it till you make money then start over again with another idea.

    ps and when you do find that idea, press the thanks button to show your appreciation to the person that came up with it.

    Take action. Without action, you won't know if the idea works.

    I'm co-signing to what everybody above has said. Look around. Find one that appeals to you. But before you jump in blindly. MAKE A PLAN. Think that baby through step by step. Then execute. Document everything too -- because if it more successful than you'd hoped, you're going to want to repeat the process exactly. And if it's not, you can say "everything was going well up until xyz. I'm gonna tweak things from there and give it another go."
