    Hello there!

    My name is Ryan. I have read many guides trying to get into internet marketing, or other money making methods. However I do not have cash to start up many of these good ideas. So I am looking for a way to make some money to get started. I cannot get a job in real life due to health issues. I have gotten a few things ready that I heard are generally good to have for starting up any sort of online money making opportunity.

    I have:

    Hostgator Baby Plan

    Large scraped email lists

    All the time needed. I can work upwards of 16 hours a day.

    If anyone has any suggestions or a job opportunity I would be very grateful

    Thanks

    Here's what I did when I first started out with affiliate marketing: when I first joined the forum, I wanted to start off with no money as I was not comfortable making investments at the time. I created an account on Clickbank and created a Blogspot blog, which would be used to promote products from Clickbank. I used various themes and custom made blogs I created myself and put up reviews and landing pages for the products. I then promoted the Blogspot blogs using a combination of Bing Ads, SEO, and blog commenting, the latter of which worked out the best for me at the time. Once I started generating revenue from Clickbank, I just reinvested it back into my business.

    In your case, since you have an e-mail list, you should consider what you want to sell to them (assuming they aren't all dead e-mails that have been spammed to death), however I can't really give you advice about e-mail marketing as I'm a bit unfamiliar with it.

    You can start with Youtube its good for free traffic it works for me.The key to success is to don't give up you will win some you will lose some.You should keep away from scraped email list they a higher chance of spam traps,get traffic to build your own lists

    Why not join a freelancer site like Upwork and offer to write articles? The only investment is your time (which you say you have plenty of) and depending on your skill level, you can earn some startup cash quickly.

    I second this. Most people assume you can't make much an hour on Upwork, however with a bit of marketing I was scoring $75-100/hr gigs pretty quickly.

    Would you mind sending me a PM with more information about how you marketed your skills?

    Thanks!

    I've made plenty of money over the years just doing stuff in the hire-a-freelancer section right here at BHW. There is always something to do there just about no matter what online skill set one has.

    I suggest making a Linkedin & in it put you're for hire then link to your Upwork profile.

    One then use a Linkedin auto view bot every day & use Twitter automation for that.

    Also, whatever your skills are start building out Youtube videos and so on.

    Since then I've moved to building out my own site & charging clients direcly from it, skipping the Upwork fees. But all my orginall clients came from this method.

    Last tip, your Upwork profile should be used as a sales letter instead of a "resume".

    Take a look : ppcmode.com/hire-me feel free to copy and readjust the language to your liking.

    Just a tip, if you start with no money: Sendinblue allows 9k emails/month for free, maybe that can get you started.
