    I know you probably have read thousands of these posts by newbies like myself coming on here for some advise but I ask that you experienced adults hear me out.

    I have great passion for the internet and making money, it is something that I think about each day and I'm always trying to think of new ideas... However I wish to start making money online whether it be selling a product or hiring workers to do jobs that I offer. I really have no idea where to start, I do have capital around $100 but I look to spend as least as possible.

    I understand I cannot expect to see returns as soon as possible and getting started is of the hardest possible. I am already reading into stock market as well Forex as I have the demo apps on my phone and try to trade what I can with trial error as most the time I have no idea what i'm doing :p
    But what must I do and what programs do you suggest I get to become well versed in this field? All suggestions and comments are welcome... And please not I am a teenager with huge passions as I wish to pay for college and will not giveup. That being said I would love to hear your responses!

    Well I think you should read everything you can about making websites and / or SEO (search engine optimization), then decide on a market. Do keyword research, build websites or have them built then apply your learned SEO. There's a TON of valuable information here to read, and shared software also that will help keep the costs down.

    So, start reading and asking questions when you need help.

    Good Luck and welcome aboard to the best IM forum on the net!

    Think of something that you are passionate about. Maybe it's fishing, bowling, hiking, whatever.

    Next get a domain name centered around said passion. Put up a Wordpress site and add original content.

    After you have your site up and going look into ad networks, and/or CPA networks.

    Lastly..... Have fun with it !

    Looks you're already on the right track, blindly stabbing in the dark, trying a few things out, reading, getting new ideas, doing more blind stabbing, eventually you'll get there. No one is likely to give you their method. I blindly stabbed for about 5 years before anything came of it.

    Maybe you can find a mentor, but I think it will be unlikely, just never give up, thats where you start.

    I see, but if I want to use SEO... Do I have to use the services? or is it ok for me to do my own optimization... Also I'm interested in how those people offer those services, how do they do such? as I would love to offer paid services one day

    First you have to learn SEO before you can charge others for it. And you should learn SEO for yourself so you can get your own money sites on the first page of the search results.

    READ & LEARN

    Lol @ $100 of capital.
    That won't get you far in internet marketing.

    I spend a lot more than that every day......

    Buy a local search domain,seattleplumbers.com that kinda thing.KEYWORD MUST be in the domain.Rank it,which will be easy for a local keyword,rent it out annually for $500.That'll cost you $30 max and posting links in related forums will have it on the first page in no time.

    Thats the easiest way to get started,rinse and repeat once you've gained more capital you can do other things.
    Good luck with it.

    First do key word research, Then you will find a nich, any keyword search between 10000 to 40000, now there are many programs that even tell you what are the money keyword, (most of the time,)
    buy a domain with the keyword,
    write five or six really unique articles. post them in sites like ezine article. squidoo, hubpages, ect.
    write a content rich articles for your site,
    after about two weeks , start building link's to your site, after about a month get some blackhatter to build links, there are so many offers with xrumer and scrapebox.
    good luck to you,
    ps: don't buy some junk software form people. because every one think there stuff is the best, when it's not.

    I'm assuming you've already read all the other 1000+ threads?
