    Hey!

    I'm lurking on BHW for one week and it's really interesting. The thing is, despite all these several guides, i have no idea how i can start with nothing.
    And by nothing, i mean nothing! I don't have any skills, i never created a website (just one stupid blog on blogger 6 years ago), i don't understand a lot of things in the guides, etc...

    I know i'm not an idiot but i really feel dumb and it's depressing.
    I was always interested to make some money on the web but i'm just lost. I don't ask for a lot of money, i just want to make a few dollars to keep me motivated while i'm learning and get better at this.

    I already read a lot of the guides here. I'm pretty sure i can find something perfect for me and i will keep looking for it but i'd be happy if someone can help me.
    Do you have any good advices?
    Btw, i live in Europe. Don't know if that helps.

    Sorry if i made some mistakes, english is not my main language.

    Thanks!

    Edit: oh, i have a list of ~7000 mails adresses. It's the only thing i have. I have no idea if i can make something with that.

    If you are a new guy on IM and do not understand many things posted on the journeys thread try gathering your questions and asking them to the member who made the thread (OP) via comments, every one in the beginning did not know a thing but then by reading every day you will evolve and get more knowledge. My suggestion for you would be to think of something you like and that you would be willing to write articles for, then make a website for it (I know that you said that you never created a sit, but there are lots of tutorials on YouTube on how to make one, try searching for how to build a site with WordPress) and monetize it with Adsense and Amazon.

    That's what i was thinking. I found a nice guide about amazon affiliates niche sites and i think i can make this.
    I didn't think about the Youtube tutorials and i will definitely take a look at this.

    I already tried to register as an amazon affiliate, just wanted to see if it's available in my country but i have to own a website apparently.
    Another thing i'd like to do is upload some youtube videos (original content) but i have no idea about the subject of the videos and i don't have any interesting skills.

    Thanks for your answer anyway!

    When your starting off from nothing what you really need is the right mental state for attracting wealth. Once you have the correct mental state your brain will re-wire itself to attract the things that will bring you wealth and success. Although its up to you to find the tools to put you in the correct mental state.

    Your problem is that maybe you like look things and not take action. Simply read any method here and try to do it!
    If you fail this can help you because you can learn what works and what no.

    "Every mistake is a step towards success", I don't know who says this but it's true!

    If you are looking for startup capital, try postloop or fiverr.
    You can then use the funds to send out those emails or whatever.

    Well, i think you're right. When i see something interesting, i think i can't make it before even starting it.
    As i said i feel dumb because i don't understand some parts and i give up, frustrated.

    But i think i'll give a try with the amazon affiliate thing. I already contacted amazon because i had some questions and i'm looking for a nice niche idea and a good wordpress theme.


    I know Fiverr but i'm not sure i can make some money. Well, i don't have any ideas, my skills are very very limited.

    Thanks!

    Read a lot on here but make sure you do take action eventually.

    first of all start thinking low about you... every expert started somewhere once :) so even you will learn... this forum is a great place to learn and you are in good hands....read guides on Google and form a list of questions that you dont understand and ask here....

    If you know nothing and don't want to spend nothing you will have to work for everything.

    1. You need to know how to find information for almost free. In as much as you don't want to spend there are a few things that aren't free.

    2. You will need to learn the act and execute it all by yourself. You can ask questions here and use Google/YouTube for a quick search, it really helps.

    Good luck..

    Work hard, daily. Treat IM as a business.

    Learn to use some basic free tools to automate some basic tasks (imacros is the first thing I started using and it helped me a lot)

    Be constant and don't get discouraged, IM is going to be a hard and, at times, disappointing journey. But trust me, at the end of the road there is a golden pot if you are smart and consistent enough with your work.

    I started as middle-man. IM is in simple words : Traffic->Offer->Money. So think about it, browse trough some offers, and gain some general idea. Now ask yourself... where can you get traffic ? Where do your potentional customers hangout ? Instagram ? YouTube comments ? Facebook ? Google ? You are probably not able to build your own website yet, so take that out of your equation. You would also be suprised, by how much people are uneducated, but they own their websites. Find these people, and offer them money, that will be degraded by your margin aka revshare.

    Just look for platforms, that could bring you traffic, and they are free. And just analyze them, look what you could promote, and promote it.

    I hope i helped by a bit... i am still a newbie, but this is how i did it :) Also, learn from other people mistakes, rather than from your own. When i see people who are struggling now, i can see why. Ask yourself that question too.

    OP, we were all there at some point.
    You just have to take the first step and be prepared to fail before you have success.

    Watch out for amazon being a non-English non-us resident. My wife and I are US born and raised same states even, paying taxes & various forms of ID, license & passports and after 8 months of fighting amazon's BBB department said "We can't verify if you are or are not _______, Sorry this will conclude our correspondence." I did that amazon turk bullshit and they took over $200 considering the $3hr payment that's a hell of a lot of waste time from a "trusted company."

    1. don't think about short time! or earn 1K ... think bigger
    2. start your blog ( i don't talk about photoblog, i'm talking about real blog and niche blog )
    write about something that you has professional on it or you are study on it, or you like to be like that
    3. keep going and after 2 month start your google adsense
    4. use reddit

    I wasn't expecting so many answers, thanks!
    Yesterday i found a pretty nice thread about the amazon affiliate in the "My journey discussions" forum and it was really interesting.

    I'm waiting for an answer from the amazon affiliate support, telling me if it's available in my country or not. Then, serious things will start!

    By the way, i'm looking for a good wordpress theme. Do you have any recommandations? (free or not?)

    Do i have to set up my website on wordpress and export it on a domain name once it's done? Is it easy?

    Thanks again for your help everyone.

    If you don't know html and how to delete malicious codes that comes with premium wp cracked themes, then buy one.

    Get domain name, get hosting, attach domain to hosting, go to hosting cpannel, install worpdress, install theme, and that's it.

    My tip is the same.

    You have arrived to the make money forum, well choose a post, read it, and try it (there is a lot of post that require no money investment). If you understand something, ask and you will receive help from the forum members.

    The most important is the actitude. Discart quick money methods, the only ones that work are the ones who require dedication.
