    Is it possible? I have money, but I can not invest it into IM at the moment due to monetary issues at home.

    I'm thinking of finally trying out some methods, but most of them involve websites, which I do not have. I wanted to generate passive income via youtube/PPD, or something else such as content locking.

    Using free website creation devices such as blogger/wordpress don't allow you to put affiliate links or anything of the sort. (Or am I wrong?) I just can't pay for the hosting, it's too much. Until I start making money with IM, it'll have to wait.

    Any advice?

    Offer them free wordpress site if they register for hosting using your affiliate link :) works great with a lot of advertising :)

    Not quite sure how I would do this. I'm looking for something that can generate passive income, just in case I can't work at the moment money will still be coming in slowly. Thank you though, +rep!

    I see free website offers EVERYWHERE on the internet. Even lots of the hosting companies have a free web design utility same with the domain name companies.

    There was an website in the past, they were an affiliate to hostgator and they had one single page with signup information. They had masive traffic and I think a lot of conversions too.

    Why not give PPC or CPM a try then if you want to make some revenue with free sites like blogspot/wordpress/tumblr etc.

    Could you explain CPM to me? I want to try and avoid PPC.

    CPM is $ per 1000 impressions of text ads/banner ads. There are networks out there that pay you solely on raw impressions like CPMFun. They pay for clicks too but if your CTR is low, you don't have to worry much as you'll still be paid for every impression/visitor to your site. I think the going rates these days are around $0.50 ~ $0.80 per 1000 impressions.

    Seems like that would be better suited for a authority website. Are there methods that don't require websites that I can use? Is PPD allowed on free websites?

    Haha I was looking at the link and I saw "excuses" and I thought it would be a sarcastic joke but it really helped me in my situation.

    Thank you very much silentthunder, + rep!

    Promote an adult affiliate program. Most of them will allow you to use their free hosting, but you will be limited to promoting their content/sites. You can then use some of the methods you are learning here to promote your adult website.
