    A few years ago I made a full time living in the US online; however, I left it all to take a real offline job. I've been laid off and want to get back into this but I've heard the horror stories of Google updates killing peoples income in a matter of seconds and having to start all over.

    How many of you support yourself full-time through your online ventures? If I may ask as well, how much do you make?

    I'm just trying to get a rough idea of where people are at nowadays.

    This is just my personal opinion .. I think its pretty rude to sign up onto a Forum and your First Post is asking about personal financial information and business information..... seems you have little intention to share with the community and just want us to provide you with answers.

    Didn't mean to come off as rude. This is a discussion forum and I thought it might be worthwhile to discuss the points I hit on in the original post. Of course I'm not forcing anyone to share, just creating an opportunity for those who don't mind sharing to share.

    Sorry Mate but this question is asked at least 5 times a week.
    Nobody is going to tell you how much they earn, of course you might get the odd bullshitter jumping in here.
    Don't worry about what other's are earning just concentrate on maximising your own revenue.
    Also don't start a thread until you have searched to see if the topic has been discussed before, it saves everybody a lot of time.

    No one is going to publicly announce how much money they make. I will say I am all of my income online and live decent on it.

    You posted this in the wrong section - maybe read the rules of the forum and get to know the place a little before posting again?

    I don't understand people enforcing an assumption that "no one will publicly say how much they make," as that is only a psychological societal stigma that people place on themselves because they think it's taboo to discuss income. If you're uncomfortable saying how much you make, or if you think someone else will be offended by you telling them, then you either need to work on your self-values or not associate with that other person. That being said, even if you're of the mind to tell someone, if you give them a number they think is unreachable due to some self-deprecating mindset, then they will just dismiss you as a "bullshitter," as highlighted above. And yes, I make my living online, though this is a mix of several online ventures helmed by either myself or my partners, all under my umbrella corporation.

    I dont make a living but I just started, I'm about 2 months in. Make around $200 and am trying to scale that up. I'm a freshman in college, I don't want online stuff to be my permanent job by I think it would be cool to make 6 figures from it and have another job as well. Majoring in computer science right now.

    All of your income is online? Really ? Geez I guess people who post 20-30 posts a day on bhw still have some time to make money online and live decently.
    I'am sorry but from my experience of being in bhw, people like you technically make no money because they are too active in bhw. Not saying, its everyone but I as a rule of thumb people that make money don't have time to post 20-30 posts a day on bhw.



    OP , in this thread you are really going to get ppl that will lie to you and make fluff their income, some who will get offended and some who just don't give a fuck.

    Let's see I am making my money right now off freelancing coding jobs doing it part time around 20 hours a week, so my income flunctuates but I would say is around 800-2k a month. I am going to college right now so that is just extra beer money and for that kush that i put into my lungs.So yea, I do make my money online doing coding jobs.

    Better place eggs in facebook or youtube. All things do not go well, one has to make it straight.

    I think you need to define exactly what is "online ventures"...b/c amazon.com is an online venture and they do very well...

    if your online venture consists of being an affiliate marketer, then your "online ventures" might not be super easy...

    if you are selling unique programs, widgets or whatever else you fucking think then maybe you can make it...be original and do something that no one else is doing...or don't, but you better make a better pizza then the store that is next door to you, or better hamburgers...

    Last week I made a total of $6.88, from 42 online properties (average of 16 cents per site!). Of that, $6.80 went to my credit card payment, which is now up to $164,522 after 2 years of living like a king because I'm making money online. It's actually a great lifestyle - I stay at top hotels, travel a lot, and eat great food... what more do you need?
