    Hi there.

    Since I've finishes my education I earned good money with various kind of business.
    Last year i rented a hughe and luxurious flat, buyed a fast car and spent the rest of my money in furnitue and stuff.
    My current income allows me to keep this standard but not to save anything, but whatever I'm satisfied with my life.

    Whatever a few months ago I've received bills about $22k for taxes, insurances, forfeits etc which I could not pay.
    I recognized that I need to earn more money to keep my current life standard on a long term basis.
    So I closed all websites and shops, stopped not profit-making business constructs and concentrated on my job (web developer freelancer).
    This week i also selled my dropshipping business, the time I needed was not worth it.

    Now I'm standing here with nothing but my job, one offshore company construct which is not doing anything and my knowledge.
    So my question is how can I make money online without investing too much time (1-2h/day, initially maybe more) and too much money (max. 1k).
    I mean seriously, I cant make 8h/day some crap youtube videos and earn $20/day for it I'm not anymore a 18y old jerk who lives at his parents.
    Doesn't really matter what kind of business. Ok i don't like going to jail ;)

    Thanks for you ideas!

    So you have had a business supporting your luxurious lifestyle, but you have shut them down and sold them cos you have received a bill to pay....

    Well done!

    Ok sounds funny but no, you get it wrong ;)
    All those businesses/websites/etc. have not been really successful, it was a waste of time.
    So i decided to shut them down so that I have more time for new projects which (should) bring more profit.
    The "big" money mainly came from my job as a freelancer and it's still enough to keep my lifestyle but not enough to pay those bills and save a little bit money.

    Lets say this is all true.... -.-

    First of you have to be really imature or stupid to not save for a tax bill that big...
    second, if you have a tax bill that high you must be making at least 5 digits a month, so why are you coming to a strange forum and asking for help?
    third, I always find the search function a good place to start :)

    I have an idea for a project..... maybe if you are intr. you can send me a PM and I'll tell ya what it is.

    Otherwise.... good luck man.

    If you owe $22k in taxes then that means you have earned quite a nice sum... why don't you do what ever you did to make the original money? :girlshit:

    Ehm why should it not be true? In some european countries you have to pay about 30-50% taxes so you don't have to earn 500k to get such a tax bill.
    The bills consists of 7k tax for 2013, 6k back taxes for 2012/2011, 4k for military cause I did not join, 1k insurances, 2k health and 2k for penalties because of tax dodging in 11/12.

    I knew that most of these bills will come but I did not except that they will all come in the same month. But ok I should have known that, was kind of stupid.
    Of course I used the forum search, but what term should i enter? "How to earn money?" "Have been a dumbass how to get my money back?"

    Sorry did not know where else to post.

    Thanks, will send you pm.
    Well I earned a higher 4 digits sum a month, that's not so much here in Switzerland.
    I basically still do what I did before (web development), the problem is that few years ago I had no car, lived in a small old flat, etc so the money was more than enough to pay bills like that.
    Now it isn't :(

    You can try Amazon Associates program and create amazon review sites, more information here and here. Amazon disadvantage is that the commission is very low (up to 8%). You can make whole website yourself with minimal expenses. You can also create web development course and sell own products/services (you are web developer, so it's easy for you). I think it's good niche with high commercial intent and low competition. Another option is to create more websites and offer them for sale on Flippa.

    You're missing the point.

    When people tell you to use the search function, they're not telling you that because it provides instant gratification. They're telling you to go put some effort into discovering a method that works for you on a website that's full of great ideas in literally every single possible area of internet marketing.

    Contrary to popular belief, this business requires work. You're going to have to put in some serious effort if you plan to succeed with any long-term plans and it all starts with a little bit of self-education.

    Thank you for these tips! I will do some research and try them out.

    Ok that's true, you are right. I know that I iwll have to work very hard and maybe learn a lot of new stuff.
    Indeed I can't except that someone gives me his finished business plan and I would just have to realize it.
    I just did not know where to start, you all know what a huge area IM is, there are thousands of programs, ways, methods, whatever to earn mony.
    What I need are some inputs where I could start with my research and what is still profitable in 2013.

    ^ This ^ You just answered your own question, start trying them and see which one works best for you and makes you money, then expand and scale it up. You will only succeed with a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck. GL.
