    I don't have any money and I don't feel like spending any money as an internet affiliate marketer. Can it still be possible for me to earn money without resorting to scamming people?

    I agree with Nick. And if use a little sense, you will re-invest earnings into more websites and tools.

    Yes. Look to Ruck's blog on how to make money with Yahoo answers. All you need is a few Yahoo accounts and a Clickbank account (or some other affiliate account).

    Either way you should still invest in a few cheap domains and a cheap reseller hosting account to build upon. $5 per month for hosting and $20 for some domains is nothing when you look at the rewards you will be reaping down the road. Besides, you should easily be able to cover these costs each month with Adsense alone.

    I totally agree with you booman. But the guy doesn't feel like spending any money at all. As for my case, the only thing i am paying for is my internet bill. i got my tools and domain for free, for some friendly reason. :D

    Free blogs: Sign up here: http://www.blogger.com

    Google Adsense: Sign up either via Blogger or someone can refer you ;). Either way it's free.

    Generate traffic: Follow some of the tips in the Blogging section or on a few other blogs/forums. Traffic+customers=clicks=$$$

    A few things on Adsense:

    1. Don't expect to make alot of $$$ right away.
    2. Don't click you own ads.
    3. Don't tell friends and family to click your ads.

    A few things about Blogger:

    1. Too frequent posting will label your blog as SPAM with Blogger.
    2. Blogger likes to delete blogs, so your hard work can be gone in an instant.

    so I recommend:

    1. Buy a cheap domain (appr $8)
    2. Find a cheap host w/ Cpanel (<$5 per month)
    3. Install Wordpress through your Cpanel (takes 5 mins)
    4. Follow some of the tips in the Blogging section

    Best of luck!

    Thanks booman for sharing the quick tips.

    I've started with blogger already as initially i thought of trying wordpress but it seems more complicated & technical to me so i opted easier route, i.e. blogger. I've created and set up some trial blogs with blogger and got my adsense account approved, tested with some advertisement placement just to get myself comfortable with blog & adsense code basically.

    I might migrate to wordpress with domain/hosting once i mastered skills with blogger.

    Ok, my next tasks are generate content for my niche blog. I mean readable content...you guys have any advice how to get unique content other than writing them myself? I heard software like "Instant Article Wizard" & "Article Content Spinner" can generate readable unique / fresh content from article e.g. PLR content etc? is it recommended? anyone has such software?

    About niche research? I'm trying to use keyword elite to search for niche market, is this good enough? My next task will be try to generate fast traffic...guess i have lots more to learn.

    By the way, other than adsense, any other thing i can do to generate income from blog? Is it possible to add affiliate product link, other stuffs like Text-Link-Ads, Amazon Associates product link, etc? Which one is recommended?

    Thanks.

    Sure you could use some article spinners, but they often just replace sets of words or phrases and makes it sometimes seem like a 5 year old wrote it. What I have done in the past for my blogs is grab some PLR articles, then simply rephrase everything. It takes about 15 mins of work but provides totally unique content no one else will have.

    As for niche research, I'd start out going after topics you know about or are passionate about. This makes it easier for a person to stay motivated. If you are an expert in rebuilding a Chevy 350 motor, then blog about that. If you are an avid photography buff then blog that.

    As for generating fast traffic most state you have to learn to walk before you run, which means learning conventional tactics to funnel traffic to your site. Once you have an understanding of that you can focus on other methods.

    As for other affiliate programs, there are numerous ones out there like Copeac and NeverBlueAds that manage numerous campaigns for companies. There are others out there similar but these are the ones I use.

    Amazon is good if they have products relating to your niche, especially for books and gift shopping.

    As for TLA, you need to have good PR and traffic in order to get your site(s) approved in the system.

    However, one thing you don't want to do is dilute your site with too many ads. Keep the options for the surfer to just a couple ads/affiliate programs that relate to the niche. You will see much higher conversions this way.

    Slim Ghost you can make some good money by joining a cam community. Only draw-back is youll probably have a ton of men giving you custom requests lol but hey you won;t really need money online to start off there. Easiest way i could have thought of ...little joke ....but hey who knows.....there are people who go through those measures.
