    Hi Katou,
    When you say "if anyone can help", what kind of help specifically are you looking for?
    Did you review the methods presented on the forum already?
    Sorry to say, but no one here will take you by the hand and teach you how to make $$$; you first need to figure out what tactics interest you and try implementing them.

    There are many things you can do that require little to no startup cost (e-whoring, content creation/freelancing, etc).

    As for YoungGuns method, just a word of caution before you jump in. The method itself IS 100% legit... it involves getting paid for trial offers, which are free or at very low cost (around $5 most of the time). However, the reason the advertiser is paying the affiliate for each free trial is that they hope some of them will continue past the trial and actually buy the product.
    On many of those products, it says somewhere in the fine print that "if you do not call to cancel before XX days, we will bill you $XX amount each month, blah blah".

    For this reason, if you chose to participate in that offer, or in any other "Free Lunch Room" programs, do keep track of which offers you sign up for, and when to cancel them. Also, I would recommend that you apply for a "real" credit card if you are to signup for many of the "free trial" offers.

    In case of a dispute with one of the advertisers, say you canceled the offer but they billed you anyways, etc, it is always easier to dispute a charge on a credit card instead of a debit card. Plus if you fill out several offers, you never know who has access to your card number on the merchant's side, and if some douchebag working at the payment processor decides to buy porn with your card number, if you used a debit card, the banks are not that eager to reimburse you for fraudulent purchases, since its YOUR money, not theirs, and they can take weeks to investigate before refunding you.

    Also be advised that those advertisers also make money by selling your data (name, phone number, address, etc), to other companies, so dont be surprised if you start receiving junk mail or telemarketing calls.
