    Hello,
    This is my situation. I am 16 and only have around $10.00 on my paypal. I have looked all around this forum and found many good methods. The problem is that a majority of these method require at least some startup money for hosting or a domain at the least. The problem is I cant afford hosting because usually you need to pay up front for a couple months. I really want to start autoblogs but cant because i cant afford hostgator for it. I also would be interested in stuffing ebay but it is tough because each auction cost a couple dollars so it will not last long. What my simple question is how do you think I should make those few dollars so I can at least afford the hosting?Keep in mind I am only sixteen so I really dont want to e-whore which is what most people do for quick cash. I was looking at just using blogger instead of wordpress since the hosting is free but you cannot get that great plugins so that almost seems out of the question. I do not have the skills to write articles most likely either because I have not ever done it before and dont want the bad rep. if i do a shitty job. Please do not shit on this thread I have read and read and read. If you having nothing good to say then please just leave I just want legitimate answers.


    Thanks you,
    Mike

    Would you be a bit more specific on what type of service you did?
    Thanks.

    I've been in your shoes before. It's rough. If you are looking for some free hosting, let me know I can offer you unmetered hosting with Cpanel, Fantastico, and all that other good stuff

    I'm more or less in the same boat as you here. Don't try to start out for $100 a day...try the Craigslist Amazon method which nets approx $7 a day.

    Learn more and more every day, fail different techniques more and more, and then once...once...you will find your method and you can cash in on that and be riding a Lamborghini to school (this is the best possible scenario).

    PS: helloall, curious to know your way too.

    Do you use DP for that? I've tried there, but I am just not as skilled as others w/ Photoshop. Also, I suck/hate writing, and I only know HTML, CSS, and a little PHP.

    There's no money in content creation. It takes an hour to earn $2.

    If your a native english speaker, do the AC method. Don't write for someone else, open up your own AC account. You'll be able to make $20 a week if you do a few articles a day. I'm 16 also and I know you've said you've read and you've read, but you need to stop reading and take action.

    You can get hostgator and a domain for under 10 bux. Get the coupon that offers you a month of hosting for a cent and buy a cheap domain. I started out with nothing but a free host and a wordpress and i made a few hundred in my first week. I bought a hosting account and i made even more. Read the first 5 pages of this forum and pick out 5 methods then don't even visit this forum for 3 days. Implement all your methods as best you can. There are plenty of Craigslist methods that require $0 startup cash. Try doing some grunt work on these forums for people. Make email accounts or something. If you have an ebay account, offer to list products for people who are cookie stuffing. They can pay all your fees and stuff to your paypal and you'll make a profit. Tons of things you can do.....

    Write articles to post with links to your affiliate links, who cares if they are shitty grammar wise. You just need to give info. Use fake names. Answer Yahoo Questions with the mention of products that you are an affiliate for. No matter what service or product you are going to sell somebody isn't going to like. Just give refunds or fix the product as seems appropriate.

    May i ask how you made $400 in your first week with only a free host?
    I would be willing to make email accounts but i just dont know how much in demand those really are. I have a cs partner and we would do 50/50 but he never offered to pay fees. Maybe ill ask him.

    I did johnnypro's craigslist method but i used insurance offers instead of a free credit report. I offered apartments or housing and said they needed a home insurance rate. I also did cars and said they needed a car insurance rate, etc. I just used my free host as a redirect basically to blank the referrer. The ebay CS method would be easy to do. Minimal work and if that guy won't pay fees, there are many other people looking for someone to post their ads on an ebay account.

    Hello Mike
    Perhaps it would be easier and more efficient if you would tell us what you can do? What do you know how to do? What, if anything, are you good at? What do you want to do? (besides make money) What are you interested in doing?

    You have someone here who offered to help out with a hosting service. That's a good start.

    You may want to find someone experienced who is willing to JV with you if you're willing to do the grunt work or promote. You put in the "sweat equity" and they put up the rest. Don't expect 50/50 though if you're just getting started and if they have to teach you everything. 60/40 would be more reasonable.

    Surely someone on BHW has had a thread that you like or caught your interest. PM them and talk to them. Age isn't a factor. I've JV'd with a 12 year old and they were my best JV partner. But as someone mentioned on another thread. you've got to TAKE ACTION!

    Im skipping the posts and just saying my advice..

    step 1: look for your traits, coding, photo shop, writing articles, seo, blogging and if your good in any of those traits you can then move on to forums and sell your services once youve acquired around 100$+ dollars get hosting look on this forum for a "free vds" i dunno if its still valid but i got a free vds 300$+ value for a whole year anyway hope that helped

    also, i read a post about proxies.. there are softwares that find proxies from proxie forums list them for you and test them.. i wont tell you what software you can pm me if you want that info.. original poster only

    Yeah if you dont have money to start you just have to go with free methods. Its as simple as that.
