    Can you start making money online today?
    Yes, and no 1 way to do this is to simply get a affiliate url from just about any big site. and spam it everywhere you can, craigslist, facebook, blogs, ect.. I have done it you will make money today just not paid today takes about 30 days average. So you can make money today just not paid today.......


    Can you get paid today?
    No, i think the fastest would be 2 weeks. i have seen sites that do the paid to click, and pay out faster like 2 days but 99% are scams so beware!


    Does fiverr work to make money?
    Yes, it really does i made an account selling custom WP themes and sold about 2 a day and that was the first week. The more feedback i got the faster they sold. i also did about 20 other gigs all together i made about $500 the first month. In the end i stopped, because it was not worth the time spent for the $ earned... Almost 50% of the people who purchased expected the world for the $5 they spent. But it does work and you can make money on it just if you look at the time spent verses the money earned its crap....on fiverr you only get $4 of the $5 and you get paid via paypal so more fees...... in the end its not too good......




    Can i get 1000s of hits a day?
    No, most people think they are going to get 1000s of hits a day this is a dream.... but it can come true but its going to take a ton of money spent on advertisement or 1000s of hours doing what you should be doing SEO, blog commenting, blog creating, ect,ect.....




    Does google adsense work?
    Yes, but only for the best of the best.... For an example your website gets 100,000 hits a day you will earn about $5 a month.... The only way affiliate advertising like this works is if you get clicks on your advertisement. Views alone will get you nothing.... You must work your advertisement into your blog/website


    Does PPA affiliate marketing work?
    Yes, I used a site called MaxBounty they offer many products, one was supplements paying $40 per action. so i made a site about supplements i added at the end of each post a link to buy the supplement. I made about $200 a month and that was from about 12 hits a day on the traffic side..... So remember 1000s of hits mean nothing you only need 12 hits a day to make $200 a month. But these hits were from really good referrals like google searching for my keyword or supplement blogs i was commenting on.




    Can you make money on youtube?
    Yes, but the money is very hard to get. From what i know, the lowest i have seen is $0.91 per 1000 views and up to $3.50 per 1000 views. But getting the views is the hard part. You need to have videos people, one want to watch and search for, plus you need subscribers this is big key to success. If you have a large subscriber count like say 500,000 you will get about 100,000 views just for making a video = about $500-$2000 just for that one video.... but again that's with 500,000 subscribers.... how do you get there? you post good videos people want to watch there 100s of ways.....




    Does drop shipping work?
    No maybe 2 people in the world make money from running a site that sells items and profits from just using a drop shipper. They have a been doing it for years and years don't waste your time its a scam.


    Can i start my own website store and sell my "stuff"
    Yes, but you will need to know a few things.
    1. Your need to know your not going to sell ipod's or anything close to popular people buy from big names like ebay and amazon. Don't waste your time.
    2. You need to be on google for your key word. if you sell wooden ear plugs you need to be ranked on google to anyone who googles wooden ear plugs....
    3. You need have global payments relying only on the USA will hurt you a lot. You need world wide sales. and just so you know paypal is blocked from a ton of places.
    4. You need to do your research if you selling something do research on who else is, and do you want to compete with them? can you? are there prices better? if so stop don't waste your time.




    Do i need a website to make money?
    No, i first started making money online without a website. i used referral codes and posted them on everywhere i could.....




    Do free websites like wordpress work?
    Yes, i have used free wordpress sites to get affiliate sales. some even rank on google within a few days for the keyword.




    Does live chat help your sales?
    Yes, 100% i have tested it over and over and i now run a live chat on all my website. This provides confidence to the user, your sales will go up.






    Feel free to elaborate.

    Good thread, except some points I think I would have to say:
    - About getting paid, I had times where I sent direct emails and convert them in the same day, and I got paid in the same day.
    - You can get 1000s hits a day and lots more too.
    - Dropshipping works. You just need a good volume of sales and reliable retailers.
    - Google Adsense works. And if your website gets 100,000 views per day, you won´t make $5, you will make much more.

    "I've never done things, so others wont either."

    Nearly everything you just posted is BS:

    $5 a day from Adsense with 100k views?
    No one makes money dropshipping?
    1000 hits a day hard?

    Get a job.​

    I think you should rename this thread to "My experience in online money" cos there is a lot of BS in your post. First point... your answer is yes and no .. lol.. can you get paid today? yes, if you list something on ebay its possible to get a sale the same day.

    can I get thousands of hits a day..? no.. lol, come on man.. just because you don't get that, it doesn't mean its impossible or even difficult.

    ok i skip the rest down to dropshipping.. I do dropshipping and I make more than the average monthly salary in US or EU, so.. yes, it does work.

    again, don't want to shoot you down, but claiming you know and reveal the truth about making money online.. come on dude.. there are lots of people and ways to make money here on BHW..

    Wow! Most of the above what you have mentioned is false actually

    How can you say getting 1000 visits is difficult?
    How can you say you will make $5 with 100,000 hits a day?
    And about youtube and Fiverr, my friend you haven't yet earned much from these methods. I guess you gave up too quickly on one method and came up to a conclusion very early

    And BTW you can get paid today. How? Do some freelancing work and get paid straight to paypal instantly. Ofcourse how you get those clients depends on you

    So you two got sites with 30,000 visitors a month? :) Hmm, can I take a look? Or can you at least share with us your seo strategies? You must be fucking millionaires if you can rank sites for high search volume keywords.

    That's no big deal. If you know how to hit the long tails and how to hit keywords during the right season you can get much more than that and no 1k visits a day wont make you a millionare lol

    Sorry but this thread should be in the journey section and titled "My failure".

    Just to show you that it IS possible to get thousands of hits a day check the screenshot below. I watermarked it, just to make sure we won't see it in a WSO salesthread :)

    And as you can see, it's not just some shitty traffic. Never spent money on advertisement, never commented on blogs as you claimed. It's SMART SEO (and good content) that doesn't take "1000s of hours".

    I won't comment on your other statements, most of them are ... :)

    I worked for an online website that had in total about 8000 visits a day, an ecommerce website getting about 700 orders a day. They went out of business about 1 month ago. Traffic has got nothing to do with how profitable your business is.

    thanks for the true words
    I have 3 online shops with different products, all are niche products, but unfortunately it is also harder and harder in this business.
    With only one Shop, excample fashion jewellry, not enough to live, with 3 keywords in the top 10 (1,3,5 Place) Google, 5000 excact seach month in Germany, one Keyword in Place 15 with 18000 seach month, but it is not enough for a prosperous income.

    Adsense even though I do not know English, gives me a lot more. In general, people done, that laid out the experience.

    I have a website with 700-800 visitors per day, and sometimes it peaks around 1200. I built it around 4 months ago. And no, I am not millionaire but I guess people say it a lot, targeted content is the king. I am making money on it since I have as little as 50 visitors per day or so, and I dont use Google Adsense but selling my own services so maybe it isnt the same case than other guys.

    100.000 visitors would cash me arround $8500 via adsense according to my RPM and CTR, so your $5 isn't true

    Dude, ranking for 30,000 searches keywords ain't easy. 30k fucking organic visitors that are very interested in your niche surely must mean something, if 1% of those crowd buy your $50 service or get you around $35 in affiliate commissions than that's at least $10k per month which when you flip it, it means $100k in the sale. Create several such sites and you're close to become a millionaire, as you also sell your services no less than $1000.

    There's SO many other easier ways of getting traffic than with Google.

    Just because you're stuck in the past trying to outsmart Matt Cutts doesn't mean the rest of us are. Evolve.
