    Do any of you guys around here not spend money to make money? I've been in this field for a long time and have never found a method that pays off. That doesn't take a load of cash, what are your experiences? I was down on my luck a month ago, and I understood how hard it is to make good money online, without a few thousand dollars at my disposal.

    Seems like the old saying " it takes money to make money" holds true most times, but not always. I've managed to make a few bucks here and there with no investment but any significant gains have required some money up front. I suppose it also depends on how much time you have to spend on it as well. In my experience money always speeds up the process though.

    You'll always need money to make money, but you don't necessarily need a LOT of money to make a LITTLE bit of money ;)

    For example I'm starting out doing amazon affiliate and as opposed to spending money on PBNs I intend to take meatheads method and do it all manually. Once I've got some income I'll use that to increase it further.

    Really depends though man, what kind of money are you looking for, a full income? Money on the side? Cash for the weekend?

    It is true that you will always need some money to make money. You however want to make sure that you are not overspending. It is good that we get to know the available offers and freebies as we start off so that there is enough saving on the costs. At times you may find yourself spending more money on an offer that you could have gotten for free. In this business btw it is all about thinking smart and also exploring the opportunities available.

    If you have money to boost your IM projects, then you won't have to work as hard. Otherwise, make sure your desk chair is comfortable and your thermos is full.

    Now if you really want to stand out, you'll work just as hard and invest in them.

    It really depends what you are doing, but if you search hard enough you will be able to do stuff for free, there are always nulled scripts or simple methods that can help you by only dedicating time and more time.

    I made about $300 without a startup cost, which got me rolling into other ventures :)

    I started with very little. But back when I did, it was far easier. There were no SEO gurus misleading me, that also made it a helluva lot easier for me to be original and not pay attention to all the noise they put out in their white boards and such.

    If you are a beginner and start with few thousands dollars I guarantee that you will lose all your money... I started with $0 with youtube and squidoo 4-5 years ago... all I spend now are 20-30 dollars per month for hosting, domains and other thinngs... you don't need money to make some videos or to make an instagram account ... but do not except to make thousands of dollars from the first day...

    I don't believe you when you said that you are here for a long period of time... maybe you just read this forum, but if you start working hard 8-10 hour per day at the beginning you will see good results after few months

    What is your definition of good money? I made lots of money just using Facebook..no money spent on ads....just a few minutes of my methods.....Super easy....Making money on the internet is an easy sport for us...Now like some of the other BHW members said, money can speed up the process.....

    I'm a relatively old fart compared to most people, and in my business career experience, coming up with the first $100K in capital starting with 0 was the hardest part. Once you have some $$$ that you can invest in real businesses, you can make your capital snowball pretty fast if you know what you're doing and you work hard. The difference between someone who has no money but is smart and the average person is way way way less than the difference between someone who has $100K and is smart and someone who is average and has $100K.
