    It seems we are getting inundated with threads the last few days about people saying a. I've been trying for a year but I can't make money or b. I don't believe people can make money online.

    Honestly it makes me sick in my stomach reading these threads because BHW is such a Goldmine in Building a Business and Knowledge .. with the result being both have value.

    Making money online doesn't just mean - Fraud it doesn't mean you have to be an email marketer or you have to have alot of money to get started -- but what you have to realize is you have to stop with the excuses and move your life along -- don't get stuck at doing nothing and stop making excuses to yourself.

    So with that said lets look at a few ways to get started and how to generate some money.

    1. Make Business Cards / Website Offering a wide range of digital services -- Seo / PPC / Optimization / Hosting / Social Media / or other.

    If you know how to do these things great - if you don't start finding reliable providers who you can outsource the work too.

    For more inspiration search for BHW User 7878 or any journey threads related to his ideas ... this is a Goldmine.

    2. Start Smaller -- Scan Craigslist Computer Gigs and bid on as many jobs as you can do yourself or outsource .. check BHW BST or Fiverr

    build up a network our outsourcers and refine your replies to people -- as everyone is answering these people do get some good copy.

    There is no risk here really - you don't meet these people - they don't know you -- learn your trade build your resources.

    3. PPD / CPA / Affiliate Marketing : while your working on a more normal business - build yourself a website - and monetize it with one of these methods ... experiment with it // rank it // promote it and increase your knowledge -- learn about hosting - learn about plugins - learn about Seo - learn about CPA / Amazon etc develop skills that other people may want to purchase from you ... or if your site becomes successful then start scaling it up and increasing your earnings.

    4. No interest in any of the above -- then how about learning something like UBot or Zennoposter - and building people custom bots - and providing updates for monthly fees. Know more advanced programming - then how about offering a Bot Building Service using that language.............. these skills are always in demand.

    5. Become a VA for someone. Offer your skills working on other peoples projects and work like you would a regular 9-5 job .. good va's are always in demand.

    6. No interest in any of the above - but still searching for something you can do ?? Write Articles -- people need articles and people need writers -- I put this last because it can be boring -- but if you got bills to pay - then get started - and start working on your client base so you have orders to fill each day.

    7. Final ---> If all else fails and you still want to work in Seo - go and apply at a large Digital Media Firm - and just get a foot in the door - work there for a few years on Salary - save your money and go on your own after that - when your skills are better and you understand how things work.


    Honestly I 100% believe that every single person no matter what your skill level is today -- if you read BHW and work on just 1 method above you can make money ... that's the bottom line for me .... All The Best.

    +1 to Danny.

    So, in short: analyze, choose your path that suits you best and TAKE ACTION!
    There are many possibilities in IM but stick to one and try to perfect it.
    Do not try to be jack of all trades and do nothing.

    Thanks man, for a while I was getting discouraged (still trying to get my IM company off the ground and make something), but I'm most certainly going to diversify my bonds and give the first option a try. Seems like something more solid that I can get going while I'm experimenting with Amazon affiliation. Lot more guaranteed sending a pitch to targeted business emails than hoping consumers will stumble on your site haha, your thread is what got me into Amazon in the first place, thanks for being consistently helpful Danny. Always appreciate seeing your threads amongst the 'make $5/day' 'get rich quick' threads in this section lol

    I think people forget that IM is a skill alot of companies need - there is room for alot of people ---> but that means you have to work on your skills or outsource effectively.

    Heck go read Scritty's Story - I think he started IM like 7 years ago and now he is getting quoted by major websites ... every single person starts somewhere ... so BHW is like a textbook -- study it / learn from it ---> but then get out there and apply it.

    All the best guys - I have to get to work myself .. LOL .. cheers.

    I could not agree more Danny. This community is rich in information that can make you money and all you gotta do is
    apply yourself.
