    Hi All

    Yes, this is another one of those threads with a newbie asking advice on how to make money online. I have lurked in these forums for a very long time and I've seen some great things but I've been afraid to take the plunge I guess I would be able to handle anything but I just need someone to point me in the right direction.

    Things I have seen that would interest me are: Updating Websites (Making old designs new), Dropshipping and reselling of Fiverr services. I think things like that would be easy. But I'm lost as to where to find the customers/products etc. There was actually another one that I've seen in an online video where they talked about going to one website and finding someone who wants a websites designed for X amount and then you find a web designer who can do it for X amount -500. Obviously keeping the 500 for yourself. Sounds simple, but yet not so simple to find these type of customers. I always feel like the easy ways are not so easy to find or they would become over exposed. I am not one of these people who think "Give me a button to click so I can make millions". I will work if shown how.

    My goal is to be making €100 a day or €500 a week off the internet. I know it can be done somehow.

    So there's my story, any help with making money online would be great. There is also a part of the story i've left out about low point in life/depression because I didn't want to play on that as we don't need any "Woe is me" stories here. Lets just say I really need this help and it will mean alot.

    Thanks in advance for anything you can do and I really look forward to hearing from you.

    There is no one way to make money online. You have to choose a route based on what you know and what you are interested in. You can get clients in so many different ways. If you want to find website design/redesign customers then try classifieds, SEO, Social Media or PPC. You can also try cold calling or finding ugly websites to directly contact. Once you get a few customers you can start asking for referrals. Try and keep them as long term clients so you can upsell them internet marketing services that you can outsource (don't use fiverr).

    The bottom line is you need to get your foot in the door that is usually the hardest step. Don't put all your eggs in one basket and start trying different methods. Whatever you find enjoyable and profitable continue and scale up!
