    Hello

    There are tons of information on this forum but i just need a plan. I can't just take any method here and start making money because there are some obstacles on my way.

    I have no coding skills (because of this i can't have a website and can't get into cpa companies).
    English isn't my native language so i can't really write good quality articles.
    I have around 400$ dollars in my bank account but i don't really want to spend it all on IM when i start out except for stuff like domains, hosting.
    I have a shitty computer so i can't run any resource demanding programs on my pc.

    If you were me what would be your plan?
    I was thinking about learning to build a website, getting into cpa companies and start making money from there.

    Im kinda in the same boat as you. I feel I know some things but applying them is a bitch. Maybe we could talk AIM or something and brainstorm. I think actually having someone to chat with one on one would help me at least. PM me if youre interested and I'll give you my AIM adress.

    You really don't have to learn how to build a website there are many great platforms that make this process very easy, ie wordpress, blogger, xsite pro, or just get a template page and open the index file in NVU which is a free html website editor and bam you'll have your first web page/site.

    I have a second hand DELL 2.7GHz computer with a 40GB HDD and 512MB RAM. And I connect to the internet with a 512kbps DSL line. At a minimum, you should have this setup.

    Incidentally, I have a dual-boot system with Kubuntu Linux as my internet OS and Windows XP used only for some special applications.

    To be perfectly honest mate, your screwed.

    You've just invested time and energy making up a litany of excuses about why you can't do anything. In the same post you asked for a plan to make money, you pretty much want the milk without dealing with the cow.

    Excuses are irrelevant, and every problem can be got around.

    Your English is bad? Then writing articles is a perfect chance to work on it. Writing a few thousands words a day is the quickest way to fixing it I can think of.

    You want a plan?

    Go to Asociated Content or Ehow, and start writing. It's not resource intensive, and if you focus on writing quality articles instead of quantity, you can make a little money.

    Then again there are always more excuses.

    I tend to agree with the Orator's post. To be honest, I would have never known you weren't a native English speaker based on your writing. I would read around in the AC subforum and learn about the kind of specifics AC wants for solid upfront payment offers. (they still pay up to $9.50 for 350-400 word general category articles and up to $25 for the special assignments). I would then start by doing the writing yourself to get some money rolling in. You can go from there and decide if you want to scale up AC by mass submitting articles through outsourcing, or use what you've learned to start CPA campaigns etc.

    Like mentioned above, nowadays it's so easy to throw up a site that basically anyone can do it. Just go to Wordpress.org and they have tutorials that will help walk you through it.

    I think the hardest part is just doing it and stop reading this crap. Every post sidetracks you to a new idea and each new download or eBook just prolongs jumping in. My website has so many new products for download that are posted each day, I stopped visiting it and reading. I'm making $0 and don't care - my real daytime job is enough income. Problem is I am $20k in debt for a project that failed and need to start on just one little thing to get me out of this whole without using the mortgage, food, and wifey money.

    In your case, I wouldn't read my sig. You DO NEED to read and research a bit and then dive in. I started with AC and RedTide is a great resource on this forum. If you are interested in article submission, go here:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...rticles/77524-made-30-two-articles-today.html

    Master it and you will have recurring income. You can make as much or as little as you want. You can do it...you just need to do it!

    Thanks for the kind words Blackstone. You look good in blue btw ;)

    Shoot me a PM when you have a minute so we can catch up.

    I hope all is going great!

    @ Kitsune - Good luck with whatever you dive into. It's so true that it's important to read, research, and take notes, but only up to a point. It's just as important to realize when you know "enough" to just dive in so as to learn for yourself. It's just words until you've made it reality.
