    Hello BHW.

    I wanted to thank you for all the amazing content you have all posted. I stumbled upon this site from Twitter and have been reading all night.

    I have a day job doing social media profile upkeep. It is a good gig, although the job security is kind of weak and my hours have just been cut nearly in half.

    I am a recent new home owner and with the recent paycut my choices are to quit my current job and find something full time, or try to generate income via Internet Marketing... or lose my house. I'd like to avoid the latter :D.

    My wife works full time so I'm sort of a "stay at home dad" so I'd prefer to use IM to work from home if possible. We're kind of desperate so I want to ask the community:

    What is the single easiest way to generate income?

    I have been reading a lot about autoblogs and such, but much of this information is just over my head. I never went to college and lucked into my gig in social media after playing around with it for some of my musician friends.

    I came here hoping there would be some beginner guides, but I find myself having to google every acronym I come across.

    I know IM isn't something I can do overnight, but if I can generate an extra $1000 a month while keeping my current job, the mrs and I could manage to keep our home.

    I'm at your mercy, BHW. What is the best way for a newb to generate some income with minimal capital here?

    Thank you

    At first, if you know the practices of IM and have good knowledge of building websites and driving traffic, you would not have to work at a part or full time job. If I were you I would work at a full time job, save my home, learn IM slower but better, and when I hit the target quit the job.

    This may be what I need to do. I am pretty tech saavy and quick learner, but I may need to pick up a fulltime and start hiring a nanny. Still, where does one start with this? All of BHW seems like you all have been at this for years and know everything there is about the IM world. Where do I get started?

    Three tips I wish I know when I started:

    1. Stick to just one method until it works! Dont jump from one to another...

    2. There is no easy and fast way to make money!

    2. Act now!


    For start go here and read stickies:

    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f12-making-money/
    And dont think you will make money fast... Some people struggle for years to make consistent $1000/mo...

    Good luck and dont give up!

    A person whom joined just this month and immediately asking the community for a "sure method" way to make money.
    Apparently you haven't read and tried any of the methods shared here.

    IM is never a job. It is a game, or a hobby or passion. Never take it seriously.
    If you're gonna treat it as a job, believe me you're not gonna make it far.

    Rather than experimenting different methods to make money from the Internet, offer your service here for sale - something you are really good at. Take a look at the 'Services for Sale' section to get ideas

    couldn't say it better. you best bet is to sort out a budget. and stop looking for quick fix answers.

    Yep. I completely agree. If you want to develop something stable and quick, then offer a service for which you know you can provide. This can even serve as your job and generate you money which you can invest in IM.

    The above suggestion is the best advice you could take to be safe. Change your job to full-time, get a nanny|child minder|nursery school, learn IM in your spare time as suggested. Do not rush into it because you will make costly mistakes, you will be in a hurry and it never happens in a hurry.

    I have just returned to IM after having to get a "normal" job for the last 3 years. Three years ago I was making about $500 a month in IM but it was not enough to support my mortgage, hence getting a job. Well that job has ended and I am in a similar predicament as you now, lost my job a couple of months ago. I do not know that much but if you ever get really stuck then PM me and I'll see if I can point you in the right direction.

    Good Luck mate,
    Cheers.

    To learn IM properly, you also need to make investments in buying tools, domains and services (you cant do everything on your own). The Best way to make money when you know lesser and have nothing to investment is to provide services.
    Most people I know make money to invest via providing services only (including me).
    If you are in US, making PVA may be easier for you... (its upto you)... Just have a look at the Buy-Sell section in BHW and some other forums and decide that which service you can provide.

    You can also try some site like fiverr and make some more $$$.

    All the best!

    IM is a trial and error process. You have to take action, put your own twist on it and see if it works. That's not a process that happens quickly. It takes time to develop your resources and build up momentum.

    I've been building blogs since July of this year in my spare time. I've made a few mistakes over that time, but I've been persistent and have kept going on my method. Although I treat my IM as a business, I don't see it as a job. With just working in my spare time, I'm up to about 4 or 5 dollars a day right now. I'm covering my ongoing expenses, but have yet to recoup my investment in tools. I will soon enough, but I'm a long way from paying my mortgage.

    Hi, i would like to sharing my experience too, i have been in IM about 2 years and only earn total about $1000 from some PTC, twitter , PPP, bukisa and others . In my opinion : the right and simple way to make money online are from Adsense or other PPC site , affiliate (but to earn from these , we need a lot of blog so currenty, i have target to make about 100 blog in this month with 90% are autoblog) and write article and post faztoid or others( if you very good in English).

    Listen, there's NO magic button. Get a full time job and save your home. Do IM in your free time. You can quit your job later when you've been making 3x your day job for a while.

    One thing I have found is this, you'll see lots of things all over the place in the IM world that say make $500/day easy, all on autopilot, stuff like that, and I'm sure there are ways to do that, but so far here are things that have made me actual money.

    1. Selling backlinking services through fiverr
    2. Writing articles using dragon and textbroker
    3. Now I'm starting to see money through CPA and really like where it's going
    4. I have made a little bit with autoblogs too

    Starting off with these things I'm not sure if you'll make an extra $1000 per month though, although they could be scaled to do that for sure.

    I've been doing this for almost a year now, and I've got a ways go to. Keep on reading this site and you'll find some amazing things, but if you need to save your house, I would recommend with going with what you KNOW will make you money, it took me a while before I saw any cash, and I'm still working at it.

    It's a very long process, if you need the cash fast, definitely get a real job that will give you that quick buck. But as far as IM, you can start with the free methods and keep building them, they do add up fast. If you don't see immediate results, just don't give up and keep putting stuff out there. You don't even need a website bro. You can start with getting yourself a clickbank account, choose a high converting product (with high gravity), get your hoplinks, then go to tinyurl and get it shortened. Then go to twitter or facebook get an account or two, look up the keyword related to your product (ie, if you get a gaming guide, type into twitter the word gaming, or world of warcraft or something).Start to reply to those who have a problem related to the product you entered and send them after the 3rd or 4th reply about this really cool guide or whatever and do this with at least 20 people a day. Trust me, you WILL get someone to buy the guide eventually, the more the better, but so long as u don't come off as a dude who's selling them something, but rather someone who is genuinely trying to help.

    You can follow this with facebook as well. But it's a bit diff strategy.

    Create Squidoo lenses and post there. Create an article and submit to ezinearticles or many of the other article directories.

    The point is to dive in and do it. And do it consistently. You won't get 10K the first month I assure you, but you'llbe able to leverage on that extra time you have in your hands.

    Good luck man.
