    Alright, I know most people don´t have any patience to teach and/or don´t really care about giving advice, but reading the forum I noticed there are some really nice people around here, so I decided to give it a shot and ask for advice anyways.
    Thing is, I am a 41 years old woman from Brazil and I have a physical disability. I usually work as a translator freelance, but things have been kinda tough lately, hard to get work.
    Anyways, I got a website that has about 500 pageviews/day and with good content, I also have another website with series torrents.... I also have a youtube channel with some videos.
    I am trying to find a way to monetize my assets in order to get at least $5 a day... if not more. I have looked at almost all the methods in here, white or black hat, and see nothing that can help me. I am currently making about 0.50 a day with my website (adsense) and the same with youtube.
    Could anyone recommend me a method to make the money I need? I have a good computer (an ATI quad core with 8 gb mem) and a 10gb internet connection.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on it....

    $5 a day is pretty simple

    write 1 article a day and your there -- either start advertising for yourself - or join up with a company that provides these services - but you may have to write 2 a day.

    Also I find it almost impossible to believe that you couldn't find a method on BHW to generate more than $5 a day.

    These type of posts always attract controversy because probably like many here I taught myself from the ground out - reading posts and implementing - so we like to see people at least trying before providing some advice.

    I´m sorry if I seem lazy or something like that to you, but it´s really not the case, I can assure you... Writing articles is out of question since I am brazilian and the places I tried didn´t seem to like the idea to have a brazilian writing them. I DID read lots of methods in here, and tried some, but I could see no return... This is no flaming and I am NOT trying to start controversy, I am merely asking for help.

    it seems like your English is good, you can open a gig on fiverr and sell articles (or anything else for that matter)...
    if you are afraid you won't get orders because you are from brazil then simply use an american proxy when you register
    you can find a plugin that does it for free...

    you can also join freelancer and try to sell articles there... try it before you make any more excuses....

    Sometimes assumptions get in the way of solutions.

    Put your assumptions aside, and start writing articles - literally 30-45mins a day and you'll have your $5 if that's all you want. Choose a generic niche (business, health, finance) and get to work.

    Heck, you could even spend another 30-45mins a day at it and double your income goal.

    Honestly it seems like your English is good enough to sell articles so I'd recommend signing up to some freelance sites. iWriter is good and doesn't require a sample of your previous work so you could sign up there and start earning right away.

    In the mean time however, keep reading on here, look for new methods and write more so you have money to invest.

    Good luck

    I am currently signed to 5 freelance sites - including a brazilian one - and they don´t seem to like my articles... It´s not an assumption, it´s trial and error :/
    I really didn´t think I´d be accused of making excuses, I really wanted some advice...
    Txs anyways... if anyone else can help, I'd be very thankful for any advice....
    (I am not in iWriter, so I will try this one right away, txs...)

    Your written English is excellent....better than many native speakers..... Fiverr is a good place to start...It takes a while to build up momentum, but once you have a reputation.... PM me your gig once you have set it up and I will buy an article and leave a good comment to get you started

    If you're insecure about your english skills, try offering translating services from English to Portugese; there is less need of it, but also less competition.

    iWriter is quite good and I'm sure you'll find some work. If you would like me to go over one of your articles and give you some advice just let me know :)

    Spin articles and submit them to Yahoo contributor. Just use US proxy and specify that you are the U.S. They pay 3-8 USD per article.

    Best advice: go fail.

    Seriously, fail.

    Fail as hard as you possible can and then fail some more, because that's how you're going to learn the important lessons in this industry.

    Well, fail is something I have been doing quite sucessfully......
    Still, I really hoped there was some way to make money out of the assets I got - website, youtube, torrents website... - but it seems that´s really not the case :/

    of course there are ways to make money with everything you mentioned! but it takes much more hard works and even more fails along the way... but it seems like yo need the money right away... so writing articles is the best option....

    to earn money from a website you need to write constantly, share it everywhere and get backilinks until it ranks...
    to earn money from a youtube account you need to do a lot of research and find the right niche, post videos on a constant basis, you can also do product testimonials and rank them with backlinks / youtube views

    and so on... but you said you need moey right now, didn't you?

    you can either work super hard for a long period of time and reap the results later (which means you'll fail a hundred times along the process)

    or sell articles right now and make 5$ a day... its your choice...

    Since I am already trying to write articles with no big success, I thought I could try all things... meaning I will still try the articles but I wanted to try something else as well.
    The website is already full of content, it has been going on for over an year and it was ranked ok the last time I checked but still, maybe because it´s in brazilian portuguese, not many visits a day :/
    My youtube is not very successful as well. Been trying to use enhanceviews in order to get more visits and improve my ads revenue but it´s not a lot, sadly... got more credits than I can spend and still the raise is minimum.
    Also explored the bitcoins market, but earning bitcoins is not that easy, it seems, or I don´t really get the methods :/
    It just kills me that I have all this time to spend in front of a computer and can´t make money out of it!
