    My wife is super successful and has challenged me to a contest. 30 days to see which one of us can make the most money. I am a noobie, and just registered on Black Hat recently.
    She does not think I can generate money with my websites, and based on the last three weeks, I have not been making much progress
    monetizing any of my domains.
    I would like to at least make something, even if I don't beat her, at this, it would feel good
    to be able to make even a few bucks.
    So, I'm asking for some help. I can do some web design, but my sites are not looking really all that good. I have a tight budget as well.
    That doesn't help, but it's all I have, so I will have to make it work.

    This is not how this works. You cannot rush to making money online. Just read threads, pick 2-3 methods and follow them. Dont jump from method to method and try to stick to few guaranteed tactics and sooner or later you will succeed.

    Hahaha. In all seriousness. Everyone thinks it's super easy to make money online but it's not. It takes hard work and dedication. Also the ability to think outside of the box. If you are doing the same thing that everyone else is doing you are just going to waste your time.

    I really do have a wife. Appreciate the comments, even the sarcastic ones. I have made money online. I run ads on CL and Ebay, so I know how to make money online, selling tangible, physical products. That is what is giving me some trouble, wrapping my head around, marketing intangible things, like apps, etc. things that aren't physical.
    I have been online, since I had an Apple IIe, and used to surf the bulletin boards, which is probably before some of you reading this thread, were born. Yeah, I surf a lot as well. I do a bunch of social media. I have not taken the time to start an online business, so doing the websites, the marketing, figuring out things like SEO, push, funnels, all the terminology is a lot to figure.

    Selling tangible products involves you going to exact places where the customer would go seek information. It is as easy as selling anything else, go there feed the customer with a new fact/proven benefit and make them buy. As previous members reminded, it may take some action especially trying something new, as far as you keep going you will make some money on your way.

    Stick to what you know then. Get selling on ebay again and make sure you also get going on Amazon where the real money is. Then when you've made some good money doing that invest the profits in your own ecommerce store, then learn SEO and get that pulling in the bucks too.

    Before you know it, you'll have traded in the wife for a younger model who doesn't make you do stupid challenges that are unrealistic!

    What are you good at ?

    1 month seems like very short if you have no idea what you're doing. I wonder what kind of challenge is this tho.

    Why not both of you start together and start reading BHW and see who ends up with the most $$ at the end of the month?
    Making anything within the first month seems like a very far-fetched possibility,unless you've got $500 ready to invest.

    Stream on Chaturbate. Proudly tell your wife how you're making money online.
    Optional: Challange your wife to beat your earnings making her own stream.

    Oh no ,LOL I just literally found chaturbate two days ago, I found it roundabout. I found a site that is for camgilrs/guys, and then looked at the resources, and saw a link to chaturbate. I pretty much figured what it is, even before I went to visit the site. And damn, there are a lot of people on that site. A link for every kink :). Alt.bondage, or whatever that site was, I don't know if it still exists, used to be fun, it had a good chat function, but I never met anybody through it, so I finally just cancelled my subscription.

    It is just an informal challenge, wife vs husband, she sees me typing here, and working on the websites, so at least once or twice, maybe more, daily, "I don't know what you're doing over there" but can you go (fill in the blank). Chaturbate, as suggested, might be a real game changer. I'm not broke, thankfully.
    Somebody mentioned $500, if I knew I could return it plus leverage it, then I'm listening.:)

    The question "How To Make Money Online" (spoon me) Gets more and more complex every month. Soon even a skeptic like me is going to start believing this bollocks.

    It seems that I need to be a hollywood screenwriter before I type the questions here like "How can I make xxx online?"

    You can make short money by simple amazon > ebay arbitrage. You can make more money from buying directly from distributors in your niche and selling for small or large profit margins, depending on your discount bracket. 99% of BHW works with spam methods or don't realize that spamming penis pills on a horny guy Facebook page seems a little suspicious. They don't properly build up any kind of sales copy or knowledge of these horny men. When a honest man is horny, he isn't going to just pop up his credit card and pay, hes going to go jack off for free on the internet. That is where YOU must know how to make him spend money on your offer right now, and that he would consider himself an idiot to refuse this offer.

    You can't buy decent sales copy from here, so I suggest you write it yourself and test. Nothing trumps you researching and analyzing every detail of your targets buying emotions, the competitions sales campaigns, reviews, wish lists, etc. Once you have the know how you are then ready to start testing for profitable markets.

    Thank You, guys or girls. Also, I tried to answer the pm's but because I haven't been on BHW, for a long time, I can't reply to pm's.
    I am re-reading the replies, and I really appreciate the comments, it's plenty of information to process.
    I like BHW. I've known about it for a long time. Just didn't get in and start to think seriously about doing a website, until a couple of months ago. I'm the same as a lot of guys/girls on here, there are so many directions to go, it kind of overwhelms your brain at first. I'm doing what one of the members wrote, and that is trying to focus on one method, doing something I'm familiar with.
