    Hey guys im new to this site so hi to everyone!

    Gotta say I had a read around and there is some great information on here.

    Down to businees. Ive been wanting to earn a living online for a while now but never motivated myself enough. But after reading so many success stories on here I think its time to.

    So just wondering what is the first thing some of you start doing online to make a decent amount of money?

    Ive seen so many options just don't no where to start.

    Thanks

    Personally, I started out in 7th grade selling WoW gold after Burning Crusade came out. I started phishing for Wrath of the Lich King as soon as I heard about it. My phish site pulled in tons and tons of accounts from just me spamming my link in game. After that I would go on at a time that wasn't popular so that the owner of the account wouldn't disconnect me or get suspicious that someone was on his character. Then I would gather all of the gold and 1 character for each server I was doing and I would sell the mass of gold to some chick in China.

    hehe wish I could do that again, as soon as WotLK came out it was like I got "laid-off" hahaha

    best of luck to you :)

    When i was 15 I had the biggest Ogre Battle 64 site on the internet lol i loved that game! It was completely html i wish i knew about PPC back then hahaha i use to get 50,000 hits a month and the message board had over 10,000 members when i was 16 I started lookin for ways to make money online and i stumbled across this site that paid for every click. It was a site to hack your nintendo 64 by using this chip which was what they were selling and they paid 1 cent per click i was so excited! lol i made $300 in 1 year and they never paid me. what a scam!


    However i learned about PPC later on next. Then I did domain parking... then started CPA networks, then ewhoring changed my figures ( : while i've been adsensing throughout all those phases.

    i don't work hard at all. really.

    :rolleyes:

    Very simple, really. Don't try to make $1000 right away, you'll get confused, frustrated and probably just end up losing money. Such is not the Black Hat Way.

    Study BHW, and I mean STUDY, don't just skim and think "I don't know what this means, so forget it..." Keep reading until you understand it. (Google is your friend, go play with him.) Then work on the following:

    1. Make $1.00
    2. Make $10.00
    3. Make $100.00
    4. Make $1,000.00
    You see where this is going, right? Do not move on to the next step until the previous step has been completed. If you don't know where to start, try the "Making Money" and "Downloads" sections on BHW. Plenty of great info for beginners. ('Noobs' has a hint of disrespect to it.)`

    Get dreamweaver. Learn to use it. Bam you've got HTML.

    Learn how to install wordpress, or look for a host with cpanel and fantastico to install it for you. Learn how to install plugins. Don't worry about other scripts until you can make money from this one. (Google search each of these topics to learn how, theres a billion guides out there)

    Hostgator hosting is insanely noob friendly. Give them ten bucks a month to get started, and contact their support for help with setting up your domain (or shell out a few extra bucks to buy the domain through them).

    There ya go. All your problems solved.

    I used to use Adsense when that first started...I was about 14/15 and made around £800 a month...from about 5 ad clicks a day. That was back in the day when ads for loans gave you $20+ per click. Sigh, now I make about £5 a day doing it....how crap.

    ...got into ewhoring over the past few months. Started with the rude method which I made my own and made around $300 a month, which was amazing....Now I'm just using Adult Friend Finder and making about $200 a month.

    Started with Myspace PPC for Clickbank products, I keep going back to it every now and then because it gives me a small but consistent ROI. I don't play WOW, but if I were starting over I would run with a gradually developed Myspace account that promotes WOW clickbank products, and at the same time I would build a FB account/page/group that pushes Farmville and Mafia Wars products while actually playing the games and using the CB products that I promote. Also create a youtube account to use for vlogging, a twitter account linked to the youtube account, and cross-promote everything with your myspace/facebook profiles and blogs (that are on myspace/fb) constantly. Actually buy (or otherwise obtain) copies of the cb products you push and definitely make youtube videos and blog posts of how you progress while using the products. I say this because it would not seem like work (you're playing games and documenting it), it only costs you the price of the products (no hosting fees, no ads needed, and you can get friend adding bots here) and it has both long term and short term potential because you could move on to the newest/hottest games as they become released (Cafe World?). You could promote yourself in forums and groups built around those products.

    I did some MFA autoblogs, didn't do the work necessary to scale up the income. I found that I hate the monotony of blogging, even if it's autoblogging. Did lots of small time site (blog) flipping. Twitter spamming FTW. Sold an ebook. Dabbled in Viagra. All small time things, nothing massive or worth doing again, and I wouldn't recommend doing any of them.

    My new attitude is that I am doing the things necessary to deserve the things that I want out of life - (like a Lamborghinni, a Strip Club, and a Beach House...). So now I'm backing off from trying to make money quick, I'm doing more long-term/massive scale work, building a strong base of technical skills/certification, and focusing on what it would take for me to become someone with both "guru" level skills and "guru" level income.
