    Hey everyone. here is another typical noob post lol. I've been kicking around the online business for a while but never started anything. The whole thing is a little overwhelming but thanks to everyone on this site its starting to seem a bit easier. I'm not looking to get rich, but just want some extra bucks in my pocket. I was wondering about a good place to start. I had looked into the eBay aspect if i could find a reliable dropshipper, or possibly creating a site or 2 for different niches, i.e. health products, electronics. If an experienced member could help point me in the right direction i would appreciate it.

    Search for "method". I started out reselling fiverr services, made a few hundred dollars, mainly because I was first to introduce the services in my "local area".

    "Very simple replies"? Not the most grateful sounding are you?

    Consider this; you are an absolute stranger, who turns up out of the blue, asking for help. Why should anyone help you? You are not our friend, you have not ever helped us. If we help you, it would be out of the absolute goodness of our hearts because, frankly, we all have other things to be doing. Money doesn't grow on trees and there is a lot to making money that you learn by simply doing it and trying it. For instance, there is a lot that goes into reselling fiverr gigs as SEO services; finding clients, talking to them, writing contracts, etc. Do you expect someone to go tell an absolute stranger everything? That would be a long process and they may not want to give up their secrets. So when someone actually bothers to help you, someone who doesn't even know you, comes and shares an idea with you - that you can then go, use GOOGLE and READ guides and discussions already available elsewhere - how ungrateful does it sound when you're like "very simple replies but thanks"?

    Of course its tiresome to seasoned marketers because no one owes you anything!

    Are you looking for some secret sauce or magic pudding or something? Your mind is your guidance, this is the best tool you have. The question you are asking is not a very well structured question, stop stalling asking where to start and just start! You are lucky you have managed to register yourself on such a forum which shares a lot of knowledge and like minded people. Now use your mind pick a method you feel comfortable with and go ahead and do some hard work.

    You have to understand most of use are fed up of 10+ threads popping up everyday all asking the same questions, please the search function is there for a reason.

    Try searching around here a bit. Look thru the forum and find an area that interest you. Dont look for what someone else tells you makes the most money. If I said I have a job for you thap pays 100k a year would you be interested? The answer is probablly, well what if I then told you It required you to cut off your fingers one at a time and eat them, it doesnt sound so interesting now does it? Sorry for being so graphic but I think it gets my point across. Making the most money is a bad way of looking at it. Instead if you put a plan together which incorporates your strengths and your interests you are on the right path. Pick a topic, research it, research a little more then ask some pointed questions here such as what type of links will work for "X" website or If I were working on my on site SEO what do I need to make sure gets done. The members here are more than willing to help as long as you are helping yourself first. No go and get to work!

    Here is my tip for the day, stay away from eBay and Paypal, as if things work out anyway, they will soon fuck it up for you.

    Basically, what you need to realize is that when you come online, especially to bhw, you are on your own. It is hard for people to comprehend this when they are used to getting help with handouts, guidance, tutorials, step-by-step instructions on how to do things when they get stuck. In here, it works the other way, you are given a lot of information scattered through many threads. The truth reality is that it takes months of reading to like get an idea of how things work(hosting, backlinks, web 2.0 sites, bh tools, articles . etc)

    You can't just start making money right away, you are still in information overload, that is why you ask for a guidance because you want to find a way to take it all in one thing at the time. Many noobs ask for the same thing, is not your fault, is just that here everyone is on their own, no one is here to grab your hand and tell you what to do or is going to be watching over you make sure your on the right track, or give you some sort of guide for starting out. IT doesn't work like that here, the way things work around here are completely different. In fact, the odds are against you in succeeding , because so many people quit IM right before they even make something more than chunk change(sometimes they don't even make a dollar).

    The real way IM should be approached by noobs is to know that, you guys, need to realize that reading bhw for months and absorbing as much content as you can, to understand how things work, is the only way you guys will be able to have some sort of chance of succeeding.

    Trust me, your best hope is to keep reading until you get an idea of what you need to do, there aren't really any guides for you to start because you lack the foundation of your online education. This isn't the classroom with teachers to ask around and where you get HW, if you can take action on your own and rely on yourself to motivate you and discipline yourself then you will be on a good path.However, if you are one of those people that gets overwhelmed easily and needs some handout, when you get stuck, or tutorial like if you were taking a class, then this won't be really the place for you. To be honest, stay away from any mentorship, IM membership sites, those won't help you at all.


    The best people that succeed here are those that are able to take all of this information and use it on their own.Most of these people don't really like the idea of being told what to do, they are those that really "take life by the horns".

    So in essence, nobody is really looking over you or caring what you do here on your time. No one is really going to invest their own personal time to help every noob looking for a guidance or a tutorial, is hard already to make money online, so just take all of this information at face value because thats what it really is.No guarantees that you will make money.

    You should work hard, do you know design websites? why dont search and try to rank a low competition keywork? you can earn a good bucks. If you have money for invest, you can try attack a high competence niche with good cpa, for example binary options.

    Its not an easy task mate but even then now that you have decided to start, there a whole lot of information given up there so good luck with all that.
