    There are so many courses. So many methods. So many options. Shopify, Amazon, Merch, Authority Site, Android, etc etc. I am so confused, I don't know which one is the right for me and I don't have the liberty to try all of them. How do I make a decision?

    1. Your target. In other words, how fast do you want to make the money? If you want ASAP, then freelancing or getting a job offline might be suitable for you. If you want to make the money for longer term, bigger business models like FBA might be suitable.

    Of course, the fastest way to earn money online is also the worst way to do so. The faster you start earning money, then the faster that method will be saturated.

    2. Your budget and experience. Those courses are being sold for certain prices for a reason - their target market.

    Newbies might want to spend on course around $10 - $20. This type of courses are usually related to affiliate marketing, fiverr, Adsense etc. Intermediate - $197. Expert - XXXX.

    3. Your research. Do some review hunting before decide. What I'm trying to say is, if someone said that the course is good, then he/she should mention why it is good. If it is bad, then state why it is bad.

    Thank you replying to me, both of you.

    @Calithran
    1) I am not looking for anything short term at all. I am looking for something long-term that I can one day full-time, you know. I was thinking maybe like a Shopify store or an Authority site or Amazon but I don't think I can do Amazon.com from India and I don't want to involve myself in Amazon.in since the profits are low... I'm confused..

    2) I already have a lot of paid courses for free, that were shared in the Member Downloads section and from other places.
    I have around 300$ I made from Graphic Designing (I am a decent graphic designer), that I think I can invest in my projects.

    3) You're right about that. I will research more about a course.

    P.S. Is Shopify dying or is it still very scalable and profitable?
    Also could someone explain me what an Authority site is and if it's same as blog sites? What category does a website like Buzzfeed come in?

    Thanks a lot.

    @blogzandstuff I'm trying to figure that out.. Could you help me figuring it out? How did you figure it out for yourself? I don't even know what interests me. I think you're into blogs, could you explain to me why you are into blogs personally?

    Try, try, try, and try again. Until you find something you love, have fun doing and of course makes you money.

    I love this quote from Steve Jobs:

    "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle."

    I use gypsy fortune tellers. When I see a new method on bhw i rush to the old gypsy hag and ask her to see in her crystal globe if the method is right for me. works every time.

    Everyone has an interest or skill. Do you like music, films, cars etc. Believe me writing for a blog or ecommerce site when you have no interest in the subject is very hard work.

    I really like building, making things. I also like marketing things. I think I want to do something like Buzzfeed but for a specific niche. Is Buzzfeed considered an authority site?

    OP

    Write a blog about something you have a genuine interest in, a passion as it's easier to write about things you have knowledge about and an interest in.

    Don't go for something that everyone else is targetting though, if possible.

    I see. Do you mean like make a site dedicated to one specific niche? Thank you.

    Is Instagram still profitable? I want to make a motivational page, I have an idea for a bit unsaturated part of the motivational pages side. Do you think it's still profitable to do that? Could I do it alongside other projects, considering that Instagram takes some time to grow?
    Thank you.

    Do you love graphic design? Then this will probably something related to your passion. Because you already making money from it. For example, selling T-Shirt, because people buy T-Shirt because they are related to design. Other than that, selling book cover, or eBook cover.

    I don't think that Shopify is dying, although I don't know when Shopify will last. Just like other business models, there is no guarantee. Maybe you can ask that at Shopify forum:

    Most things take time to grow, it's just the way it is mate.

    If you had a hobby like dwarf tree growing, then do a blog on that, but then expand out from it.
