    I just got this message. "So I need a few hundred to start a site?" and this urge of writing a post about this just flew at me. So here we go!

    Quick answer; NO.

    There will never be the perfect time to start, never ever. You should not strive to have $xxx before you start.

    START NOW!

    Really, getting a site up and just trying it doesn't cost much. What do you really need? A search engine, domain, hosting and a keyword tool (keyword planner is the BOMB stop paying for keyword researching tools that sucks with fake metrics PLEASE) and a strive to make those dollars.

    Experience is SO, SO, SO much more worth than any amount of money.

    Start off by learning the basics, and by learning does not mean reading shit on BHW and just thinking about it, but actually trying.

    How are you going to rank if you don't even have WORDS on your website? JUST START!

    Use my guides to start:

    This is so on point.

    Back in 2011, I started with 0. Only thing I had was my free membership here and a truckload of information at my disposal.

    I networked, got a few writing gigs, started my own business, ran a couple MNS, and the rest was history.

    Yeah I wasn't banking hard at that time, but I started with NOTHING and turned it into SOMETHING.

    So yes, hakke is right. You don't need a single dime to get started with making money online. Just start today!

    Good advice, i started with a cheap domain name and some basics and just progressed from there.
    It is much easier now than when i started way back, more people doing it and more forums like this. you are never on your own now, if you have a problem the chances are someone has already dealt with it and can advise, not like when i started.

    Those $5 ebooks you sometimes find that have good reviews usually arn't an awesome method or anything but when I was younger (6-7 years ago) they helped me a lot with understanding new concept ideas. I used to buy 1 every other week then play around with the method. Sometimes i'de make my money back, sometimes it wasn't worth the time, sometimes i made a decent chunk BUT ALWAYS i learned a new concept on how to generate traffic and monetize it.

    Now granted that was many years ago. I constantly find solid methods posted around on here that usually requires no more than a domain which shouldn't cost you more than $10. So yea learn learn learn before you try investing any large amounts of money b/c chances are you're just throwing it away =)

    cheers

    Absolutely you don't need anything else other than a laptop, internet connection and time on your hands (and preferably good English).

    I started by writing articles on fiverr (2 500 word articles for $5) as a way to raise cash to buy some tools for SEO. Made all I needed within a month to start properly SEOing my sites (scrapebox, captcha credits, proxies, AMR, magic article submitter later).

    Scamming people? I was offering a Squidoo ebook on top of my Squidoo post. I used the eBook as bait for people who was interested in making money off of Squidoo at that time. How is it a scam?

    I had positive reviews and everyone was thankful. It's not the most whitehat thing to do maybe, but I didn't scam anyone.

    The niche tanked unfortunately, making me $0/day/mo/year now. :(

    Unless you outsource, but yeah. Manual work is required in some way (usually).

    Haven't really started my blog yet, but I will share everything here without sending traffic to my blog. Stay tuned! :)

    I only don't agree with this.

    I think the perfect time to start was yesterday, time doesn't wait for anyone!

    Its true! I started with $0 investment and made my first site on a blogger blog. It all starts with you not the investment.

    Good direction for those needing a push to take action. As like all of you, I never made money online until I actually engaged in a project undertaking and checked the results to tweak for improvement.
