    We've all got a story and we've all got a dream. I got a few extra $$ sitting in Gaypal that I wanted to use creatively. The requirement is that you are under 75 posts and really, really, want $1.00.

    Your objective is to tell us all how you came to be here. What you've learned. And why you haven't gotten off of your ass and started to apply that knowledge.

    Everyone else, please feel free to critique anyone's replies to this thread in a helpful manner.

    The way I see it, maybe you'll take this $1.00 and go buy a .info domain and find a way to make something more out of it. Don't for one second think that $1.00 can't get you anywhere... There are plenty of people who have started with less than that and made a killing.

    If this is your first dollar earned, then use that motivation to make another! You will also have the bonus of some guys here laughing their ass off at you for your lack of action. Hilarity may ensue. But your goal will be to take it on the chin, keep truckin' and prove 'em wrong!

    So what do you have to do to earn this dollar? Again, All you need to do is tell us your story, and why you haven't gotten out there and started earning....

    I know this isn't much but I think it might help a few people. As my success grows, I will continue to find a few creative ways to help out the new guys.

    I'll PM the 'winners?' in the next day or so and ask for the PP address you'd like your $1.00 sent to.

    This initial offer is open up to 8 Newbies.

    this is the real use of creativity, i am no longer a newbie but still have less than 75 posts. I have learned a lot be it Adsense, Facebook Marketing, VCC, Adword... Over a few monthes I never managed to learn so mush from my books as much as i have done here. If I look back into time I find it difficult to believe that its the real me who has learned so much about the Internet... Cheers to BHW...

    I'm a lazy ass. I am so lazy that I don't even know how I could write this post? However, I'm making decent bank but I am never satisfied with the revenue I generate. I always want to earn more and more. When will I be happy?
    Damn, this post is getting long already, I have to respect my reputation of being a lazy ass. Keep your dollar bro.

    Well this is just the dead remains of my PP account until all my checks come in to reload my advertising budget. If this proves to be interesting to myself and others I might do it again for $5 or $10. And if not me, I'm sure someone else will. Generosity tends to bring out generosity in others.

    I forgot to mention that this is 100% inspired by Nevarc's $5000.00 give away!

    I've not gotten out there because i'm lazy. My biggest problem is I think too big and never look at the smaller things. I am always thinking how I can make $100 a day without ever thinking I need to make $1 a first to make $100.

    I do realize that if I replicate my $1 a day method 100 times I can make $100/day but still I think its not worth the effort to do it.

    I do have a regular job that pays okay and I dont have to kill myself for it. I'm in consulting and now i'm on the bench collecting full salary in betweeen projects. That's easy and perfect for a lazy man like myself.

    I've had success with adsense years ago when machine generated pages were still good with google. that was the lazy mans way, now i've started a blogger blog and rewriting articles manually and doing it relatively slow.

    Even with this $1 offer I'm thinking how i can get 10k people to send me $1 instead of 1$

    Hell with lazyness! I'm going to get motivated. This thread should help.

    Sorry about the long rant.

    a domain is at least $1.21 (0.99 + 0.20) so you should consider that instead of $1. I started even without a buck. I earned $50 in first three months but that too was taken by the scammers.

    Today I earn at least $10 a day, if at all ;) Now my goal is to make it regular.

    Now can I have that buck. I can really use it to do something productive :)

    OK. I came here with all white-hat experience looking for more information as the white hat world really seems to suck and nobody shares anything worthwhile outside of their stalking of m4tt cutts and other big names. I've only been on here a little while, but have learned quite a bit and tried a few methods.
    the first that i tied was autoblogging with adsense, which didn't get me very far, but I still have those autoblogs, but am coming up with unique content for them and using a re-writer on my own content. i use twitter and ping o matic to keep fresh traffic coming in, but it could still be more. I'm thinking that buying some backlinks might be helpful in this endevour
    my next forray was in CPA and I got lazy with it before I was even approved for different affiliate programs.
    Finally, I decided to get into the adult dating CPA and am going through some trial and error. My test run of a single post on CL with 24 hour incubation time netted a good enough response to make me a quick couple bucks, but subsequent attempts have been less successful. I plan to tweak my methods a bit and continue down this road while also coming up with content for my blogs.
    I really don't need your $1, but it was a good incentive to get fellow noobs to post their stories.
    My end goal in this is to get up aroudn $100/day to pay for the fun stuff in life: race cars, guns, vacations, and booze!

    I joined this forum a week ago.

    Instead of waiting for a saviour to come and rescue me and give me $100,000 i got off my fat ass and read the forum for 2 days.

    I then spent 3 days applying the methods i had learnt from readin BHW.

    I then proudly accepted my money, From my hard work and effort.

    After 2 days of reading and 3 days of applying, I had finally made what i hoped for..MONEY!

    That picture was taken yesterday, I now have another $12 in the account, Which i made today.


    Nice? :)

    Good post! I found this site through DP, which was the first affiliate marketing forum I had been to. No one was very keen on sharing their magic tricks to make the bucks, but they loved to gab about the small island they were planning on buying after just 1 week of work! a friend from a gossip forum gave me the link to this site and I have been hooked ever since! I've learned a lot of methods but haven't put anything into action because I work my ass off at 2 jobs, 12 hr days ... but I took Thursday, Friday, and Saturday off .. hoping to get something rolling by the weekend!

    I joined this forum I would say about a month ago, and Ive read till im sick of reading. Theres so much information here it kind of blows you away. what I have started doing is saving / bookmarking all the money making methods, that I think I could start earning from. Im talking ewhoring, cl, article writing. They seem to be the ones most likely that I can start making money. I do make money online with domain names buying/selling but its a slow process. I think one of the major problems facing us new guys is the confidence to go ahead and do it, because we are afraid that we will lose our accounts, i.e our paypal or ebay etc etc. But if we are going to make money through this we have to take the bull by the horns and just go for it.
    Hope this helps
    Si

    taking the time to write a post with any significance is not worth the dollar.

    I guess in your eyes taking the time to build a script, site, list, method, etc. etc. is not worth the potential to make a lot of money if the result isn't instant.

    Or are you saying "I won't write any meaningful posts unless there is some money (more than $1.00) in it for me" ?

    In the future, it's not a great idea to post your email addy especially not PP/ebay related here. Edit the post when you get home.

    Thanks for playing!
