    It is so frustrating to see that its impossible to make money online.

    When I first came across Black Hat World, I was excited. I had felt, if this many people put their heads together and were discussing ways to make money, I thought its probably possible.

    But at the end of the day it all boils down to, it just doesn't work.

    Many times, it seems that the concept for a way to make money makes sense, but in implementation it becomes evident it is just a fluke. It's just an someone became the exception to the rule and they made money. And then what happens is that other people try to replicate their success. The only thing is, it can't be replicated.

    Other times, the way to make money is so difficult and complex, its almost a second job unto itself. So for somebody who already has a job, its not really doable.

    Tons, of YouTube videos online detailing the ways to make money. But at the end of the day, it all boils down to useless. Because it can't be done. We can not be free from our daily jobs and their nothing we can do about it.

    If there actually is a method to make money and it is doable, please tell, for I am all ears. However, if its just some scam, or something that requires capital to begin, than its not realistic for many.

    Would be great to get any ideas.

    Regards,

    Mike

    There are plenty of ways to make money online, not sure what you are talking about.

    But no one is going to spoon feed you a method that will work everytime.

    If it is possible to spend money online, it is possible to earn it. Right? When you buy you are giving it to someone. How come its a hoax? Do you buy from parallel universe?

    We need to introduce basic IQ test during registration. With morons filtered out, we wouldn't waste our time as much.

    It can take years for someone to make a permanent income. Its those that stick it out for years that succeed ultimately.

    Making money online is not like a second job. For I work when I want to. I go to vacation when I feel like.
    Unlike 9-5 job, where I was told when to take a few days off.

    If you are lazy and think all the MMO model are complex, please go back to your first job.

    If you think like this then this industry just isn't for you, you get out what you put in. Do a blog about what you enjoy and you'll make some money

    perhaps a corporate job is more your pace, making money online isnt for everyone and it isn't a get rich quick scheme.

    What are the best methods to make money online. You know I'd be happy even if I made just £100 a month. The only method, I've done so far, and actually works is matchedbetting.

    Making money and being successful in life is all about taking advantage of stupid people. That's why the richest people in the world are the most evil of people - I'm not talking about your Bill Gates And Buffetts here, i'm talking about the people nobody talks about.

    If you sell a hungry man a sandwich for a dollar, you took advantage of his hunger.

    Dont forget that others try to replicate the fluke success, which makes it much harder for others doing the same. It saturates it even more even if the method was no good to begin with :D

    Im with you though I agree. I am unemployed right now so the work I do on IM is very time consuming methods (building whole sites / social accounts for each one, writing books etc.) They have promise and small success already but needs alot more work, so my situations a bit different.

    Most times, making money online seems to be a myth....even though who aren't making any money online come on forums to brag about how much $$ they are making whereas they are getting frustrated trying to make $1;)

    @op, just think of what service or product you can offer or sell to people and then see internet platform as a medium to reach out to those people willing to buy your product or service, then sell to them, that's one way you can make real money online.

    But all those other blackhat ways like: adult video + CPA offer + domain don't always work for all.....only few experts make good money from those.

    Youtube is another good way to make money online....but can you create your own interestigng videos that people would like to watch? If you can, then try youtube video creation and monetization.

    Another good way is via good adsense. But you must be ready to start a blog or micro niche site, and must be ready to be patient till the traffic grows and start to yield some positive result.

    Lastly, depending on the country where you live, there are so many opportunities to make money online.

    If I may ask, what is your passion or talent? What can you do and what do you have interest in doing?

    Read BHW threads. Why? Not to copycat them but actually to get into the loop and AVOID some (honestly).
    Really buddy do you think anyone will share their money-making methods? No, except:

    • The method is already saturated but they stand out of the crowd. So the competition will be low.
    • They actually made some bucks using that method, but that was in the past i.e outdated methods.
    • The methods are nothing but a materials for their TRUE money-making method. Let it be aff marketing, ads, ebooks, etc.
    • The method heavily depends on its niche, twist, audiences, etc. For instance (WP+AdSense+Social Media+SEO). And such methods will need research, and getting to know the psychology of the targeted audience(s).

    You just stated some undeniable facts.

    Most methods on IM are saturated and that means you have to stand out more and more, cheap gimmicks and get rich easy schemes aren't going to work.

    It took me a long time to figure that out and once I did, I've never looked back.

    Making money online shouldn't be treated like "part-time" work if you're looking to create a sustainable income, it should be treated as a business, and that requires effort and loads of time put in.

    Thanks for your responses. Even to those who made fun of me and insulted me. Made me laugh at least.

    @accofranco. I'm a software engineer, so I have worked with a lot of programming tools. If I was to build a website or try to sell something, I guess I would be most interested in the film or video games industry. I mentioned this in another thread here, that even though I am a web developer, I never actually made money freelancing building websites.

    I find those two quite different to be honest. Working as a full-time web developer and freelance web developer. For one thing, when at work we are given a task on a site, its rarely from scratch, and if you get stuck on something you can always ask for help. However, as a freelancer its more difficult. For one thing, I am not a web designer. In the past I have worked with web desingers who would provide me with a psd file and I'd use that to build a HTML, CSS, JS website. So I guess its more difficult to get started when there is no blueprint to follow. Web designers have a lot of creativity and ideas, something I believe I lack.
