    I have been trying different ways to earn online but in the end every method requires money for investment.

    I am not looking for 100$ a day but 10$ would also work for me.

    Anybody here, who is earning 10$ a day but in legit way.

    Please do post it here.

    First of all, posting a thread with the title "I always fail" is hardly the most positive attitude. You won't win too many fans here by feelng sorry for yourself.

    Having said that, there are TONS of ways to earn $10 a day. Have you considered Fiverr? If you have any skills (writing articles, graphic design, etc) then 3 gigs per day will give you $12 a day after deductions.

    Or you could just write & sell articles @ $1 per 100 words (here or elsewhere). Two 500 word articles per day is less than an hour's work.

    These methods don't require any investment (apart from time), or any real risk.

    I'm at the same situation as the OP, and already tried Fiverr but did not succeeded since I got 0 buyers.

    Can you tell me more about article selling? Where can I do it?

    Remember, one thing..

    There is no losing, only delayed victory as long as you don't give up.

    There are dozens of threads here on black hat world alone you can find business in. You could try e-lance, too, or just wait it out and then post in BST for $20. Set up a textbroker account, see where you can go with that.

    There are options, asking for an investment off the bat and giving no details should not be one of them. Just write quality articles, the pay adds up.

    OK - (1) Analyse where you went wrong at Fiverr: Why do you think you got zero buyers? I guarantee it was either down to your listing not being compelling enough, OR you were trying to market a service where there was way too much competition.

    It's the same with anything else: You need to identify a DEMAND, and you need to demonstrate that you can SUPPLY it better than your competitors. Since you can't compete on price at Fiverr (you can't charge LESS than anyone else), you have to offer BETTER VALUE.

    There are three ways of doing this:

    - (i) Appear to offer "more for your money" - (if your competitors are selling 4 widgets for $5, you offer 6 widgets for $5)

    - (ii) Offer greater quality.

    - (iii) SELL your offer more convincingly. (This comes down to your copywriting skills.)


    And (2)...
    You shouldn't need to ask this sort of thing! There's TONS of info here on the forum. There's a whole section devoted to Article Writing. Use the SEARCH button. ;)

    Thanks for the tips SneakySnake, I didn't realize there was a section for this, and when I searched for 'articles' I got tons of results but none of them saying what I needed.

    Thanks again.

    It's a pleasure, Vamola. Incidentally, have a look at "Constant-Content .com" too. It's possible to make VERY good money selling articles there. They have very strict standards for grammar / quality etc, but the rewards are far higher than most other marketplaces.

    Once you've established an account there and built up a small portfolio of work, you can sell articles for anywhere between $20 and $100 each, or even more. The site deducts 35% commission, and they pay monthly so it's not as immediate as other venues, but obviously it's far better than scrabbling around trying to make a living at $4 or $5 per article.

    $10 a day is simple, do some fake leads on cpa networks.

    I was making $300 a week doing fake leads on cpa networks for months. I hated it, but had to pay the rent. Im pretty happy not to be doing that. You could also "chat sale it up". Pretend to be a girl and chat on aim/yahoo and send them to a dating site. Both of those require 0 investment and youll make more then 10/day

    I'll sure look into it. I've heard good things of TextBroker, but since I'm not an US-resident I can't signup there. I don't think i'll have this kind of issue in Constant-Content.

    One doubt about this website: is it possible to just see what people want and then write about it? I write so much better when I have a theme/keyword than just write something from my own head.

    Thanks again.

    Yeah, that's one of the cool things about Constant Content. People post 'public requests', which include a full breakdown of what they require (wordcount, subject matter, price offered etc). So you can choose to fulfil those orders, OR you can just write 'on spec' on any subject you like. Even if your article isn't bought immediately, it will remain on file for anyone who searches for that topic.

    There are also 'private requests' whereby clients will specifically approach you with jobs, but obviously you need to build your reputation first.

    Hey,
    You should Never Give Up. Keep at it, but BE FOCUSED. if you love writing as was suggested earlier, pls write more and better.

    Heck, there are other ways of making money online, and you're surely in the right place. Just search the forum more (using the search bar will help -don't search too much else you'll be lost or confused with so many opps you'll find:)), pinpoint a particular MM niche that particularly interests you... and then start working on it.

    There are free webhosts out there,free domain naming companies,join free groups(Googlegroup,Yh grp, FB grp, Myspacegrps - [there's even a book-cpasniper i believe-shared on this great site that taught me that googlegroups allow up to 15posts per email per day on the groups--what targetd traffic that gets for any serious marketer?--],there's tons of software for use for you here, so you cannot but make it. Only do not give up on yourself.

    Just my 2cents. :p Cheers everybody.

    Why, don't you think little bit of motivation helps. In fact, it goes a long way.

    every method requires money for investment?....at least u must have one domain and hosting if u want to go forward in this business....

    bhw is like a bible of IM and u can get tons of method in here, but all the methods is need hardwork, if u dont have that one, then u 100% failed...

    my share : if u really dont want to spend any money...just go with :
    1. facebook fan pages methods
    2. youtube / freebie
    3. fiverr
    4. JV (do some seo, or anything)....

    no one quick way to make u rich, it's just a dream from any vendor who sell IM product, lol :p
