    Ok; John here. I'm 18 and I made a bet with my dad today that I could earn $15,000 in 7 months. I am currently using ac, craigslist, and various website flipping techniques. Does anyone know any surefire methods or such to make $$ that could show my dad that I can amount to something?:) Please don't tell me to use the search button cuz I already have looked. I want to know from personal experience and what you have accomplished. Thanks guys

    What do you win if you make the $15k in 7 months?

    Why would you make a bet without a surefire plan already in place? Nevermind you don't have to answer that question. I would suggest getting into promoting cpa offers use adwords and other ppc companies. Get a steady ROI going on.

    You probably won't have time to get good SEO rankings within that amount of time. I'd stick to adwords and clickbank/commission junction for that stuff. Don't expect to make anything your first month though. You'll just be learning and tweaking. It will probably take some luck hitting on a good untapped niche to make that much. But it's definitely possible. I'm in my 3rd month of this and I'm doing about $120/day right now.

    Funny...I'm doing the same thing...except I'm gonna prove to my dad once I already do it I think.

    and me proving to my dad that I can make money is gonna be achieved soon. Why? Because I said that it will happen, and it will.

    As to what to do, I can't tell you that. Some people can make $100 using AC, but I just hate writing articles in any form. So pick something that has potential AND you at least mostly like to do. I personally am looking into some cool cpa methods (if you can use craigslist, that's one way to make money with it)

    use the search button lol

    Just read some of the methods in the money making section. Implement a few some will work some might not. Once you earn some money keep investing in bigger and better projects. Just don't copy methods you have to put your own spin on them. You will most likely fail at first but don't give up. Also, make sure you do alot of research before throwing all of your money into something.

    Just because something works for someone else, it might not work for you.

    Seven months is a good amount of time, assuming you are still near the beginning of the bet, though, so here is the best free advice I can give you:

    Open a new file in the word processor of your choice. Go through this site, and find simple, easy to follow methods for making money, and put a one paragraph synopsis of each in your file.

    Once you get 3 to 5 methods in there, STOP.

    Put them in play, and work them hard for 30 days, and see how they are doing.

    Take the ones that work, and make them work better. Take the ones that don't, and replace them with others.

    Keep a log of how they are doing.

    At any point, if you find yourself saying, well, I have spent 2 hours, and done all of the work that I can for the day, but don't see any money coming in, then you need to select methods that allow you to earn more by doing more work.

    You have a target figure of just over 2K a month, and there is no shortage of posts here on methods for making ~100 bucks a day, or more, that require little to no startup capital. At that rate, 20 to 25 days a month will hit your target figure. Most of those methods require only a few hours a day, so you should be able to run at least 2 or 3 at the same time.

    Best of luck.

    I can name at least 5 methods right off the top of my head on bhw that could make you at least $100 a day if you actually did them and busted your ass.

    The problem you people are having is you are constantly looking for that silver spoon to feed you and for that next million dollar method. Why don't you instead of searching damn forums all day and night try to apply one of the methods and actually DO it thoroughly?!?!

    firstly ...

    how much start up capital do you have access to?
    how many domains do you currently own?
    what are you specialist areas?

    concentrate on your strengths and amplify them. Make a realistic plan of how much you can earn from each method and inital outlays etc.

    If you can get more money going in, than money going out, keep going at it =]

    PS - know this is basic and general. but people can relate to general and apply it to themselves. just make something work and don't stop!
