      That's a whole lot of month but I'm sure their are many people out there whose first adsense $100 comes even after six months.

      What's your income like right now on that same website ?

    Geez, that's a great question. My first EVER check was a $7 from Adsense as well. Back then I had no clue about duplication and scale. My second ever commission was from AWeber for just over $35. But to answer your question it probably didn't happen till after 2 1/2 years in when I created a 3 page funnel and some training videos on a plugin I purchased on JVZoo. The worst and best part of it was, I was working out of coffee shops EVERYDAY because I was living out of my car. Those days were really hard to just trust that I would one day start to figure this thing out!

    I wish I had gotten around some people who were WILLING to HELP ME at first and not just out to make a few bucks. As you have probably figured... this whole industry can be shady.

      DannyBags - I'm in PHX too - would love to chat sometime.

      To answer the question - I made my first $120 from an unsolicited blog advertisement back when I was blogging anonymously about getting out of debt.

      I made my 2nd $100 years later though (this year actually) from an ebook. Looking back I really wish I had investigated the reason why the guy approached me about advertising on my blog and reached out to other advertisers.

      Great question guys.

      It took me about 4 years ;-) I had this really small forum about Britpop music... I basically knew every member (thats how small the community was)... hence it took for ever to make some money with adsense.

      Shortly after I started blogging and things changed quickly. Especially because of paid articles.

      @TheDevloper: This sounds interesting. Are you still doing this?

    I sold a business-plan for $100 as a freelancer. It took about 2 weeks to create it...

    I made my first $100 arbitraging logos and articles. I'm pretty sure it took me about 3 weeks before I made $100 doing it

    College web development business. Built some websites, struggled with cash flow and closed shop after a year or so. Learnt a lot.

    My first 100$ was from site administrating - posting content, pics etc. It took 1 month because 100$ was my freelance salary indeed )

    Writing content. My first job was writing crappy 1000 word reviews for bad products. Pay was $0.01/word. Since I was a college student, I thought this was the most money in the world at the time haha. Took a week to write enough for $100!
