    I just want to say that after a lot of trial and error I think I have finally figured out how to make money online. I am not going to give you a link to my website I am simply sharing my success with the BHW community and thanking it at the same time. I have been lurking for a while and using many of the techniques that I read on here I have combined them with other techniques to find a way that worked for me. It took about 3 months but after some hard hits and some troubled waters I have finally found my way.

    One bit of advice that I would like to share is that actual, personal contacts with real people is a great way to increase money online. I would not have made anywhere near as much as I did if I was relying on internet traffic alone. I went out and met with people that wanted my service and with people that didn't even know that they wanted my service and convinced them. I know that it is easier to try to do as much SEO as possible on your site and hope that it ranks high on SERP's but if you go out and find people that want your service, even if it is a blackhat service, it is worth the effort and will pay off huge in the end.

    Thanks again to the BHW community for helping me through this.

    Yeah I actually did it.

    Something else that I did that might help anyone else trying to make money on the internet is the fact that I had a partner. I don't know about all of you but I am a techie through and through. What comes with being a techie is the sad truth that I am not really a people person. My friend on the other hand could sell a ketchup flavored Popsicle to a woman wearing white gloves. Through his charisma and my tech skills we were able to sell a service a single person who was willing to pay $10k for it. Since it is a tech service we split the earnings 60/40 where I get 60 and he gets 40. We plan on repeating for as long as we can and win at this whole internet thing. This is just advice. Take what you want from it and throw the rest away.

    Why are you guys so doubtful? A new member came here to share his success story and expressing his thankful attitude towards BHW. At least he is not another noob asking the dreaded question of 'how to make money online'

    And if you didn't have success, you wouldn't have signed up here, right? So basically you signed up just to tell us this, you are not interested in contributing to the community which according to you made your success real.

    The offline seo industry is flooded with demand and very very few suppliers. Therefore, I do not doubt OP
    Great work!

    Your always so pissy and moany when posting, lighten up a little (no offense). On a second note, He already stated that he promotes his 'secret service' with offline marketing. He already revealed his traffic source, Now it's time for you to find out and offer that 'secret service'.

    Also this is his first post, What is he gonna share. He is only 3 months into IM, i assume. He is most likely still testing what methods work and what don't, Also i'm pretty sure you didn't put out a step by step, spoonfeed, ultimate money making guide on your first post. Did you?

    No, Give the OP some sympathy and stop being an arrogant prick.

    Thanks everyone for the support.

    I will say that things that you and I would pay for on a site like fiverr whatever it may be (graphics, seo, video testimonials, etc.) people are willing to pay much more for in the real world. So if you charge $5.00 to put a santa hat on a business logo on fiver you could charge $50.00 for to people who don't spend time online and don't know of sites like fiverr. I guess my advice would be to not cater to internet savvy people like yourselves. I mean I am 20 years old and my roommate just learned how to torrent. The average, everyday person is not good with computers or the internet. Take advantage of people who don't know how to use google.

    When I was 16 I would pump out wordpress sites for $500.00 a piece. Now not everyone is a web developer but I'm pretty sure everyone here could make a wordpress site. If you want fast, easy money then go to a local business and offer to build them a site for $500.00. Go home and make it in 2.5 hours and you just got paid $250/hour for something a kid can do. Now if you are a little bit better you could make a joomla or drupal site and sell it for $750.00. Then if you were so inclined you could learn php, html, ror, and pearl and make even better sites. If you say you have a website to people in everyday life they act like it's amazing whereas if you say the same thing to people online nobody cares because we all know how easy it is.

    Somewhere in that ramble I told you how I made my $10k in one sale.

    This is so true mate. When you are working online 12 hours or more everyday, you naturally assume that most of the population know of sites like Fiverr etc.. but they don't!

    Easy money can be made.

    Also to the haters, so what if he did tell us of his success, isn't it what we all want to do when we get our first sales? I still get that buzz now after 6 years :)

    Good luck in your ventures Ludakris.
