    Hey guys,

    I want to talk about a serious issues that I'm noticing in the internet marketing world.

    I had few people who asked me "Can you teach me how I can make money easy? I will pay you"

    Or "Can you tell me what tools should I use to make money?"

    I have no interest to show off, but I'm not a greedy person, seriously. But the thing is, that I'm sure people out there are getting ripped of for an attitude like this.

    You may not be making money online, but paying won't help neither. It's psychological that you are looking for the "ultimate answer" or whatever.

    But the real truth (from my own experience) is:

    YOU DO NOT NEED ANY MONEY TO START MAKING MONEY ONLINE

    Actually, most of my money that I made online, was with very little (domain and stuff) or no investment.

    I know some guys may hate me for saying this, but please do your self a favor, don't pay people to teach you how to make money online, and don't pay for tools assuming that you will start making money as soon as you get your hands on the tool.

    I'm not saying that these stuff are helpless, in fact I use tools, and tools can be a huge help - But not as a fundamental thing for making money!

    I hope that this will help some guys here. If you have anything to say, go ahead and shoot a comment, I'd love to answer any questions.

    Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day :)

    So true and if you do want a course many of the great guru products costing $2000 can be found in the downloads section anyway.

    People love being spoon fed and that's why they won't make much money from IM. IM is all about being resourceful and creative.

    True. I've thought this for ages (I bet alot of you do too), but I liked to keep it a secret, then they can pay me :)

    Its true that every single bit of money I made from the web so far was pretty much for free or for very little. So far I've earned around $4749 from offering SEO services (offline) and from a niche review site which sells an affiliate product.

    It is really truth. The biggest money are made just from scratch. With little or zero investment. Once you got these dope, you can invest, but to archive your success you need to start from zero cash, this involves a lot of work, but the result won't let you wait too long

    Absolutely true.
    Paying to learn how to make money sounds a lot like paying to get a job.

    When in business you look for what brings the most profits.
    If the methods some guru is teaching you for cash are such goldmines, he would be doing them himself instead of teaching others. lol

    Initially I wanted to buy a couple of methods, but I quickly realized I hadn't nearly exhausted the free info on the forum.

    I invested $0 in IM and in less than 2 months I've gotten myself up to making a few hundred bucks a week. Using that money to re-invest into some passive income.

    Happy camper!

    I think the saying, ''it takes money to make money'' is in peoples heads that they must be willing to spend money before they can make it. While this is true if you need to purchase a domain or hosting to make money, there certainly ways to make money without spending a dime. The trick is to find something that works for you, then you can spend the money to build upon.

    Guys honestly when I first started, I didn't even pay for a domain and hosting! I just made a .cjb.com website and added adsense to it.

    Made like 240$ in 1 month with some strange method - Going to forums, making a thread about a great download (e.g. MSN Password Stealer) and telling them that they must to go to my website and click the ads, then it'll start downloading! (it actually worked)

    Blackhat ftw

    When you find your path, you must not be afraid. You need to have sufficient courage to make mistakes. Disappointment, defeat, and despair are the tools God uses to show us the way.

    Very true, I started making money online with free tools as a matter of fact, hosting and domain about $20 and then $7.95 after the domain was purchased, it took me a while but I did it!

    I agree and disagree at the same time.

    The issue I have with what you are saying is that in some cases tools really can help you learn, for example scrapebox helped me udnerstand SEO a ton because I could scale my efforts in a big way.

    Talk about testing things when you can spam a few hundred thousand sites without a hiccup, or check out the pagerank of hundreds of thousands and even millions of pages.

    I could go on and on.

    However when you do eventually start making it don't be cheap. Time is money and wasting your time on stupid tasks that can be outsourced is the way to go or you'll never make it big.

    You can start making money online with no money but it is a long, hard grind forward. If someone just gets a job say at
    McDonalds and makes 200 USD they sure can go a long way.
