    Before I start getting flamed - I've read about 50 different methods on this site and some of the journey threads, used the search function etc. A lot of them are either outdated, borderline illegal (I know it's BHW but even so) or involve coding and stuff that I don't know anything about.

    I hardly have any start up capitol - if I had money for solos I would be implementing the list building guide on the "curation of best posts" sticky thread. But I only have enough for domain, hosting and autoresponder currently. What would you do in my situtation?

    I'm willing to work hard and just need some guidance. In return for some guidance I would be willing to help you with your sites, write articles or build backlinks etc. So I'm not looking for handouts. If I can genuinely get some help I will return the favor.

    Thanks for reading my post.

    Get onto Fiverr and offer a proof reading service since your English is of a high standard. Initially start with a large word count per gig and then as you get more sales and a lot of positive feedback, reduce the number of words you'll read per gig.

    Then just invest that money on a MNS and backlinks from here, fire your Adsense on the sites and earn a small income while you develop them all.

    If you can write articles, sign up with the article sites. It's a great way to earn some money quickly.

    Do you mean textbroker? I have no expertise in anything - I was signing up today and there is like this huge list of categories, and they ask me what I'm an expert in? lol. What sites were you referring to exactly?

    Make a website, get it to $.25 a day / $15 a month... Sell it for $150!
    Then start two websites, get them to $.25 a day / $15 a month... Sell them for $300!
    Then start four websites, get them to $.25 a day / $15 a month... Sell them for $600!
    Repeat.

    It's really that simple to make money, it just involves getting off your ass. You say you're not lazy so this should be fairly easy. Also if you can write with perfect english I'll have you write some articles.

    Sounds interesting. What would you consider a large word count to be? I might do that right now. Also does MNS mean Micro Niche Sites?

    Maybe someone needs a VA (Virtual Assistant), you could work a couple of hours to get some starting money.
    Edit: Also, if you have a US Amazon account, I've seen plenty of people buying reviews, you could get some money doing so. Good luck!

    Adsense is always a great way to start monetizing a site if you abide by their rules and don't make TOO much money to the point where they would rather ban you then pay you.

    Constant Content and iWriter are a couple of other.

    Select as many categories as you like, you don't need to be an expert to write about a subject as - you can research it.

    It's probably wise to choose subjects you have a passing interest in as it will make writing the articles that much easier for you.

    This. I've done this and I'm still doing it. If you start out small and provide more service and better quality than others do, then you'll quickly get a lot of orders. I've been doing the exact same thing for quite a while now and over the last few months I've generated ~500$. Now this may not sound much, but most of it has been generated within 1-2 months and I've declined a lot of orders, because I only wanted to generate enough revenue to pay for my SEO tools.
    So yeah, it's a great thing to do if you're in need of a little cash, but be aware that it's actual work and not that well paid. But better than nothing and great if you're just starting out. And the best thing about it it's guaranteed money and it's all about you how much you earn.

    If you're from US, you can write content for Yahoo contributor network and earn a pretty decent money from it. There's a method posted here somewhere in which the guy used spun content and earned around $3-$4 per article. It will get you some starting money for other projects. You can also start doing YT+PPI/CPA (I always suggest this method to everyone because it's quite easy.) Well the choice is yours, just don't go trying out more than one method at a time. :)

    Yeah I read that post.

    The thing is spinning the content will probably take even longer and be of poorer quailty. It makes sense to just type a 500 word article. I think I could get up to 4 or 5 stars on textbroker pretty quickly. I think at 5 stars you can make about 16 bucks an article which is about 11GBP in the UK where I live (they have a UK version which pays you in Euros). That's good money. 10 articles a day - over £100 a day. Saying that though I would probably just do 5 a day for a few weeks and then move on to bigger things...

    Could you tell me a bit more about CPA and YouTube? Do you do it yourself? I'm a member of Peerfly and interested in getting into CPA.
