    Hello fellow Bhatters!
    So, this is my first thread on BHW finally!

    I signed up since Feb '14, have been coming on and off with no serious online time here due to lot's of travelling, job and family.....so I haven't had enough time to really read a lot of posts and tips from fellow bhatters.

    I only "sort of"starting reading tons of posts on IM since a week now or less, and I'm really eager to break loose of that "ugh! I can't do it.... I don't know how to" chain and take my first step into IM possibilities!

    The problem is I don't know where to begin, I'm not a total noob as I have just enough understanding of IM (i think). I have some free time and I have a couple of $xxxx to invest in it, but I'm just too confused as to which way to go and properly invest.

    So, if possible, I would love to hear your suggestions about how i can make my first $ on IM, please
    any suggestion is welcomed and appreciated.

    Thank you so much for your time.

    If you don't know where to begin, you should invest time learning or you will throw your $$ away.

    Even if you apply the methods that we are always here you need a minimum of training and experience.
    Invest in knowledge and study the world of marketing

    I just bought an eBook here for like $12 ($14 after conversion) and I'm up to page 6 so far! It's helped me quite a bit... I look forward to finishing it! I can show you the thread if you wish :) (it's not mine either)

    Thanks guys for your input.
    I know it's really about reading and getting "that knowledge", I have been doing some reading too, but are there any particular category which i can invest my time, study and learn? I have few ideas, and i'm just wondering if I should go with adult niche( upl video thingy) or d do some research on some microniche or something, get articles on it and get adsense. I'm also reading about clickbank, but I think i have limited access to what i can do online due to the fact that I live in China, which restricts a lot of sites (I'm not chinese, but I can speak, write and read chinese pretty good)

    First tip: Don't reply to any PM about WSO you get from people after reading this, they will just rip your money off.
    Second: Go to money making section and checkout the methods people shared there.
    Third: Go to the IM journey and you can follow any of them and make money.
    Fourth : Go to Download section if you are interested in reading any eBooks.
    Fifth: Since you have money to invest, the best investment will be buying domain and hosting and articles for your blogs.

    Good luck ! :)

    Yep, but don't get it wrong. Most people who will PM you are from WF or DP :p :p

    Read to find a method that interests you.
    Research and test yourself to understand how it's done and what's really involved.
    After you've done the first two things, use your money to outsource what you can.

    I use DP every once in a while and while it might be good for a few things it has gone to sh*t...I had two different websites that I wanted to sell and both were making good money using a method I have used for 5 years so I posted them there and got nothing but dumb a** comments from people bashing the site. Most dont even take the time to read the thread they just look for something to bitch about. If you are really looking to learn the business hang out here and get involved you will learn more in a day here than a month at DP or wf

    Don't rush investing/spending money until you read enough and get a solid plan then try on your own and only use the money to scale something you already had initial success with.

    No no, don't do that. You need paper book because you need to study offline, read the theory and after apply it online.
    Don't be in rush, we all know how you feel and how beautiful is being in this world but do not burn your cards too soon.

    I do not know who sold the ebook to you but he's certainly applying a technique learned from marketing experts who have written books on paper.
    This is just a metaphor to tell you to study seriously and to do not buy methods that promise money, happiness etc

    Dont buy ebooks, information is freely available on forums. You should read all methods and try out those that you think are possible for you. You will learn along the way. Of course, you will not get it right every time and it may take you a while to start profiting.

    The best (not the easiest) way to make money online is to become an affiliate marketer. And to become an affiliate marketer, you need a web hosting account and a domain name. You also need to learn how affiliate marketing works and how to optimize your websites to appear high in search engine results for your target keywords.

    If you aren't interested in affiliate marketing, you can market your skills online and offer them as services on Freelance sites. You don't need to spend any money to make money with this method. All you have to invest is your time.

    Lastly, you can create an ebook on any subject on which you have a lot of experience or expertise and promote the ebook on clickbank. Make sure the ebook would be worth buying (i.e. contain information that is in demand) before you begin writing.

    If I had to start from scratch I would first buy the book cashvertising to get a basic understanding of consumer psychology.
    Then I would choose a traffic source and master it.
    After you start nailing traffic sources one by one keep notes then scale on!

    Thanks SP, I was also thinking of getting into some affiliate marketing, I've been reading about clickbank lately, sounds like some doable project!
    I will be sure to head over to "journeys" section once i'm ready to make a move. :)
