    I would like to make some money to buy domains. What are some easy ways to make just a few bucks? I've thought about doing starting up some Twitter accounts and using paid url shorteners or something like that. I'm not looking for easy ways to make money in the sense of no work. Just some ways to make small amounts of money for things like domains or cheap hosting.

    Few years back (may be it was 2006-07, but not sure), it was definitely before I joined this great forum, I started writing articles for some DP members (!:)!), and made some quick money to get unlimited broadband internet subscription, a 24-plate 12V battery + UPS, and to buy hosting service and a few domains to try different things on them. At that time, I also helped someone in US modify his website, write articles on it, then helped someone collect countless the graphics tutorials URLs, and wrote a small descripttion for each) for his site, and sometimes earned as much as $50 for a day's job for him. Worked for him for almost a month and made a lot of money that time! It all happened around the same time, so there were multiple sources of income... :)

    That's a fantastic idea! Are there a lot of people here looking for content writers? What methods of payment do people here prefer to use?

    You will have to be a Jr VIP first to sell your services here. If you're good at it, then go for the Jr VIP... it may take you 3+ or more months of steady posting and proving yourself as a good member who can also write exceptionally well. Writing (articles, etc) is only one of the many resources you can use to earn as a service provider... Also find some local merchants who can use your skills, and you can use the services on BHW to serve those offline merchants and make a tidy profit. It all depends on hw you monetise your skills you acquire here or build upon some inbuilt ones. Also depends on how you utilize the services found on BHW and market them for profit. You may also do the same (resell) for some twitter services, for example, and begin making bank...

    Yeah, do that please. I actually forgot to mention that part, and for that you need not be a Jr VIP. Lots of members post their writing requirements on BHW, and you can get to work for them. Keep a portfolio ready, and write a few samples on the topics you are good at, or on those which you feel can sell... Those sample articles can easily win you a lot of assignments! Articles are always in demand, especially the good ones...

    Finance is one of the best topics to write on, only if you have a hold on it. :) Dating is another. SEO topics will sell because there are many SEO experts who will need the related articles for their own sites. Then those SEO experts work for a lot of clients who will also need some specific topics for their own sites (whatelse lol). So get in touch with the SEO experts, as this is a IM related forum, there should be lots of members who might need IM related articles.

    Have some related and top-quality samples ready when you begin scouting. :)

    Btw, you should also look in the Marketplace and see what kind of services are in demand... coding, web designing, graphics, SEO services, etc. are always needed by people. You can also create sites, look for wholesellers/dropshippers, find the best ones, sell on Ebay or Amazon as independent seller, for example. Do the reserarch... There are lots of great resources available in the Downloads section btw to help you move ahead.

    You may Google for the PDFs related to the topics you like...

    I do thank you a lot for your responses. You seem like a nice guy. This maybe the route I go. I will certainly see what people need written.

    You can work as a Freelance Business Development Executive for some it company, provide them leads, yo can do email marketing too, data base collections, online support etc...Not on BHW i am just suggesting by considering overall possibilities. Also, if you can get some it projects/leads by your ref then you can give those leads to companies and take % amount from that. All you need to do is Efforts..!!

    I think one of the best ways that you can start making money online is getting more involved in internet marketing :) . Once you start following the authoritative figures in internet marketing, you will begin to expand your horizon and understand what options you have for making money. I suggest you follow Pat Flynn from SPI, he is very popular.
