I'm 16 years old living in Australia and I'm looking to make some money online. I don't really have an exact amount but I'm hoping to get above $1000 a month after 2 months of work. My main motivation for this is to be able to move out at 18 and sustain myself Plan A I started making my first money on eBay shill bidding for just for fun. I wasn't really concerned with money, I just wanted to see if it worked. Surprisingly I never got caught. Plan B Then I moved on to selling game codes on eBay. It worked well. I doubled my money in the first week and made $60. I'm still unsure about this, apparently the buyers accounts(origin/steam) can easily get banned. If this is a myth I might go back to it. Plan C Graphic design. I went onto designcrowd and made $800 in the first week. I kept on going but I realised freelancing just isn't stable enough, from making $800 in the first week, after 6 months I only earned $1700 in total...I also hate crowd sourced freelancing because a lot of the time the client picks whatever they like and not really the best design. That's subjective but sometimes it's really obvious. Plan D I have a current YouTube channel, which I've had from the start, where I don't do any marketing at all. I also don't have an upload schedule or branding so it hasn't taken off. I realised my concept videos get a lot of attention with no marketing whatsoever. I uploaded an Xbox 720 concept and it got 40k views in a few months and it's on the 1st page of Google. The same thing happened with my iPhone concept which got featured on a lot of big news sites. Now I plan on building a niche YouTube channel around this and making adwords money. I just recently found blackhatworld and of course I'll be using the IM techniques to help build my channel. So far I've found a thread on how to get pinterest followers and It worked. I just did it as a test, so the account is useless. I'm going to use the same method on behance and I might try automating the process. Once my channel starts growing I'm going to build a blog in this niche using other peoples concepts and make some money. I also have a few contacts in this niche from freelancing so that will help. I'll post updates to this each week since making concepts usually takes 1-2 weeks. This is just one of many plans, Once I get this going I'll move on to all bigger stuff on this forum.
