    Hello there BHW,

    I really hope this thread does not come across as a typical generic "oh here we go again" type threads OR a "use the SEARCH button" type thread.

    My goal is to make a stable income online, does not have to be auto-pilot. Of course before you can help me you will need some information first...so here we go!

    - I am willing too take action, I am currently trying some methods I have seen in this section and I am going to stick to them and also put "spins" on them to see if I can make money from them, will inform you of how it goes.

    - I have money to invest, my budget would be around the $1000 area so I am able too invest in software, tools and services but I would prefer not investing in outsourcing jobs but if you think it is best then that is fine.

    - I am willing to try almost anything, what I would really love to do is build up a website, I know that choosing a niche is really important so naturally if your idea for me to make money involves that then I would have to do keyword research and the such.

    I just really want to find a good and solid method to making money online, preferably NOT selling products, e-books or the like but the whole idea of flipping websites seems very interesting too me or building up websites and adding PPC on to them (I got banned from Google Adsense unfortunately).

    The most important information I can provide you with is that I AM WILLING to TAKE ACTION, I do not expect me to sit back, relax and make money. I just need someone to help give me ideas or push / point me in the correct direction,

    Thank you, looking forward to the responses!

    TL:DR -
    I have $1000 budget
    Want too make stable income online
    Prefer building a website

    It's good that you're taking action. If there's few important tips I can give you :

    1. Focus on one thing at a time, and don't try to juggle to many plans at once
    2. Learn how to do things manually or fully understand the process before buying tools to automate it

    Good luck!
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    1. Yeah makes sense, so you can maximize on what you are focusing in, rather then possibly getting no where with multiple projects.

    2. Another great tip thank you, as no use in using a tool to do a job for you if you do not understand what it is the tool is doing. It is especially important as if you understand what the tool is doing it can lead to more unique methods and uses of the tool.

    Appreciate the tips.

    Xaviers - Yeah I did have a read through that, was pretty interesting, I just want to get a collection of ideas / methods first, especially since I have a budge of $1000 it means more is available for me too try and succeed in.

    Thanks for linking me the thread though :).

    I wouldn't dive into tools straight away. Either buy a site on flippa that's making money, or read up here and either find a method or follow a guide to get a site up and running, then think about investing in some tools when you know a bit more about what direction your gonna go in...

    davids355 - True the only reason you need tools is when you already are somewhat established and have a reason to use them.

    I have been reading up sites which involve youtube, in the space of two days I have managed to get 1000 videos views (in total across all my videos) and 7 subscribers (all real ones) I know it's a tiny amount but it's only for two days and it was not much effort at all, I'm going to see if I can build up a decent youtube channel that gets good traffic and subscribers, will help me drive traffic when I setup my website eventually.

    Also about buying sites on flippa it worries me on how exactly it works, I win the bid and then what? Typically how is everything sent across to me and how do I know there is no chance they still have access to the site or will try to scam me (sorry I am skeptical).

    Good start, it's a small amount but that doesn't matter, it proves you can do that in a short time - which means you can scale it up.

    One thing I have learnt since starting IM is not to give up too quick on any method - take what you've done so far and increase it.

    true. I don't think tools will help you in the beginning, it's like gambling without knowing the proper situation. I suggest you to keep improve what you are working by scaling up the result, oh, and weekly evaluation. Good start, welcome to IM.
