I am, of course, talking about the false expectation that you can land on a forum like this, and expect a genuine, applicable answer to the following question:
"I have no money, no contacts, no skills, no time. How can I make fast money today?"
Well let's see...
Unless you're talking about selling stuff on eBay.
I'm sorry to break the bubble folks, but unless you have at least one of the above, then you either need to GET one or more of them, or you need to get a job.
I'm not saying you can't start a profitable online business pretty quickly, but it won't happen overnight if you don't have any money, time, skills, contacts.
You have to acquire these assets. It's like trying to take a road trip without fuel, or wheels.
I know it's a hard pill to swallow for the desperate, but it's the truth.
And let me save you wasting another year, and risk coming back here asking the same question in twelve months...
Start creating a plan, and start working on it.
Don't have skills? Learn them.
Don't have money? Save up.
Don't have time? Sell your Xbox (and use the money to fund your first basic website.)
Once you have these assets, make it part of your plan to build more assets, such as:
- email lists
If all this sounds too dull, and too much like hard work, then there's another popular forum where you can go and get rich overnight, by breaking laws, ruining lives, and detaching yourself of any moral compass for as long as it takes.
This is a marketing forum, not a work from home mummies forum. This is the place to learn marketing and business tactics, not fly by night envelope stuffing bull****, or quick cash methods that don't work as well as you're promised, and don't give you any kind of future security.
Time to get a grip. Just make sure you're grabbing the rope that is attached to a firm building... not the one that's made of pasta and tied around a three legged table.
