    It took me around 4 months to reach my $100 (Adsense) but I did not spend anything....

    I created a blog related to investing and updated it almost daily.. I couldn't spend big bucks for Adwords, so I tried free methods like article marketing, web 2.0 etc

    well that was 2 years back.. I have moved on to other things but if you can find a niche that has good demand and very less good info available then the free blog method would still work.. And remember I was monetizing only through Adsense, I could have made more by promoting Affiliate products or even CPA but I didn't know much about them at that time

    Hope that helps,

    Well said .. work smarter not harder

    Wish I had known abt BHW when I started.. I could have made $100 in a week or even a day instead of 4 months.. But the first 100 is always special, so I still remember that .. and that gave me confidence that making money online is possible

    It took me so long to make my 1st 100$ that I refuse to say how long it took out of sheer embarrassment. Of course the particular method the OP is using (blog farming) usually takes a while to monetize effectively. That route is for long term, slow and steady profits. So do not despair if your not making money within 8weeks, with no experience or advert budget it will probably take a couple more months, but the good news is, it's a set it and forget it type of way to rake in money and it's not a gimmick that will over-saturate overnight. Keep working and explode every bit of work ethic you have for next 8 weeks. You WILL profit.

    Some guys have said to work smarter not harder (which is true in anything you do), but... to be perfectly honest I'm almost tempted to disagree with that when it comes to the field of Internet Marketing. The reason I say that is because, smarter would be studying greater methods, and doing a lot of research on more automated methods, using advanced software, website design, etc. and the NUMBER 1 mistake I made in my newbie days (and believe the No.2 mistake most newbies make) was doing TOO much reading and brain storming and not enough legwork to actually put a campaign into action. Keep hitting keys on the keyboard and clicking the mouse to get your project running and don't spend too much time hanging around in the forums because learning doesn't make you money, action does. 95% of newbies in this forum are busy talking about what they are going to do instead of actually doing it (and thus still haven't made a single dollar), Nike rules "just do it" even if it isn't efficient, you can improve it later.

    First night ewhoring!

    Used to run some affiliate sites before that tho, never really promoted them, just set them up and expected to get rich (lol), then about 6 months down the line after i forgot about the websites i had a cheque thru the door for $400~

    Got my ass stright back on the PC working away, never looked back.
