    As I understood, the best method must be CPAs + Cookie Stuffing.

    What kind of skills do you have? The problem with many of the methods on here is that you have to wait for the money. One way to get it immediately is to do something like flipping websites, or creating them, adding some unique stuff to them, and then selling them. Immediate cash in the bank.

    If there are any services or tools that you have, you could charge people for that too. Even something as simple as charging people for social bookmarking services is a way to make money.

    As said above, providing services (go to the digitalpoint forums) is the only way to make immediate cash. If you're a good writer you can also write articles for other people

    Definitely agree with crsk8andsno56, before anyone quits there regular job you should get a little more familiar with the typical going on's of the industry. This can be a very lucrative business, but requires a great deal of research and marketability.

    I recommend reading AS MUCH AS YOU CAN!!!! If you already have some skills such as the ability to write/understand php, html, css c++, or even marketing than you could probably start by writing scripts, designing templates, coding software, writing sales copy, marketing your skills, etc that could be helpful to the community.

    If not then READ AS MUCH AS YOU CAN......And then start by implementing some of the things you have learned and see how they do over time.

    Good luck with all future endeavors.

    The best method is to test and improve on any methods you read about.

    That would be easy. I know someone that makes 100k+/yr doing some sort of consulting. Basically he's looking for mom and pops businesses or old small outdated sites on craiglist, scanning the web or restaurants in your case and offers design service, social networks submission, the works. After you get a few clients like this and get a grip of the whole business you can outsource everything and move on to a new project. Just look at rentacoder to see what others charge. You could create your own restaurants directory in the area you live in and upsell them.

    1. make a list of businesses in your area with no website, or just a shit one
    2. write email or letter to each of them explaining your services, include examples of your work, explain it could increase their bussiness etc..
    3. take $100 deposits from those interested
    4. use said money to outsource design work on elance etc
    5. collect rest of money when you produce goods.
    6. profit

    oh and just to add, you can upsell them domain, hosting through a reseller account etc.. then you make money off them for a long time - not just once ;)

    I don't recommend making websites... unless you can be the middle man,

    find people who wants/need a webpage, and outsource it...

    The reason I say that is that you'd be trading time for money, and at the beginning of each month you have to start all over...

    Or you can charge these people $30 a month for the hosting... so you have to work your way up to 50 clients... $100 to create the site, $30 a month to host... maybe you can throw in free seo for them.

    idk
