    I'm dumb so a step by step guide would be appreciated.

    I have 100 dollars. I don't have any real skills. I can write an okay article, thats about it.

    I need a way to turn this last 100 dollars into a steady income ASAP because i'm basically homeless right now.

    I can't get a job because i'm a felon and not even mcdonalds will hire me.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry to hear about your situation Buccess. From what I have seen and experienced here is my 2 cents.

    1. ASAP + $100 Investment + No skills or know how = Flop

    So I would strongly recommend that you learn first and then earn. Pick up new skills and know how
    where you can contribute to the online economy. With $100 bucks you could make some money, however
    it wouldn't be to steady and really I would recommend you buy some hosting and run a test site, but since
    you are practically homeless I can't recommend that.

    Hate to be the burden of bad news but you need to go into survival mode and stabilize yourself before
    jumping into IM. I know being branded as a "felon" can hurt your prospects in finding a job but even if
    it's hard labor you have to dig yourself out of this. Learn while you work and come back strong.

    Online work and business is really fundamentally the same as any business and requires just as much work.
    So the quick fix doesn't exist. The long term fix does but you have to start from the ground up.

    Have you thought about content writing? It's not a bad way to earn some money while you work on establishing a website. I'm not sure exactly what your situation is or how much money you need, but it's pretty easy to make ~$50+/day writing articles if you put about 4-6 hours into researching, writing, and finding clients. Should be enough to find a place to stay and live off of in the mean-time while you work on building your own site(s).

    Best of luck.

    If you have $100, I would invest in Facebook ads. Find a product + create fanpage + targeted leads = $$$

    McDonalds hires felons all day long... I have a few sites in the employment niche and have researched that exact topic. Wal-Mart won't consider one with a record though.

    That being said, the C-Note is not going to give you something that will be an immediate response revenue wise so you need to look at alternatives while you let that cash work for you.

    Dude, that's Not funny.

    to OP, IM is not really for fast cash. If you need fast cash, get a normal job.
    Have you tried applying for jobs?

    I have found that by focusing on one thing (even if it seems like it is failing) has the best results and in the end break even or come ahead.. Dont expect to become rich overnight.. if that was the case i would not be on the forum =P Check out the journey discussions part of this forum, maybe that will have something you can make money from?

    Build a sales funnel - choose niche, create free giveaway product or PLR product, squeeze page to collect emails in exchange for the free gift, closely related OTO either your own product, a PLR product or a related affiliate product, autoresponder follow up sequence promoting your own and affiliate products!

    Pour traffic in the top of the funnel and let it pass through!

    Solo ads, Facebook ads, Banner ads, Bing ads.

    Test and tweak your squeeze page until you have high converting page, then the same with your OTO sales page, and your emails!

    In my opinion the best business model in IM!

    There are lots of other kind of jobs that hire people for cash that would look the other way. Try to turn the hundy into $500 then you will have a better chance at IM. The quickest way then would probably be PPC(pay per click) to get some converting traffic to an offer.

    Im sorry to hear about your current situation.

    Let me tell you some ways that will get you some cash.

    Go get a hat or a bucket and go out in a very largely populated area and look dirt poor and then ask for money people will maybe give it to you.

    If you want to go and get more creative when you go out in public go dance, sing, whistle, juggle, play a musical instrument, or do magic. You will make even more money now because you're no longer begging your entertaining.

    Sell a Kidney.

    Sell Plasma.

    Sell Sperm.

    Try getting on Welfare.

    Do freelance writting on odesk, Elance, and My Cheap Jobs.

    Look on Craigslist for Jobs.

    Try selling gigs on Fiverr.

    Try filling out surveys some compaines will pay you for that.

    Try locking links with AdFly or Linkbucks.

    Create a website and develop it little by little. I think $100 is not enough
