    Step 1. Get a product and a website in any niche that is profitable... This productshould sell for any number smaller than 500. $100 would be a good bet. This will cost you either money or time, or both depending upon your skill set and investment.

    Step 2. Hire someone to write some articles for you... Preferably 50-60 articles. This will cost you $500-$600, but will easily generate 20-30 sales. Keep $500 and reinvest the rest.

    Simple? You knew it? Then do it.

    I will say doing some freelance stuff like article writing or website design.

    This is the fastest way, but you can also make $500 a month through affiliate marketing or blogging as well but it takes time.

    The best and easiest way to generate online revenues is with
    affiliate marketing. There are numerous other ways to make
    money but aff marketing provides steady, effortless passive
    income once you get things all set up.

    Why go for $500 a month when you can "easily" make 100k a day!!!

    :-)

    In all seriousness, the cash cow thread is a great start.

    Pick 10 niches and buy 10 domain names. Redirect the domain names to the affiliate pages for each niche. Write 2 articles for each niche everyday and submit them to ezine articles. Change them around a bit and submit them to Goarticles, Article Dashboard and Buzzle. Little bit of work but If you can write even half way decent you will get over $500.00 for the month.

    I second this question. Can you write? Can you design websites? Can you put up blogs? I am partial to blog flipping (obviously), but there are many methods discussed freely here.

    Get a job. Even a minimum wage job will generate that much.

    Oh, you meant via internet marketing? The answer is simple. There is no clear answer. Different people have different skills, different mentalities, different budgets, different likes, etc.

    If you're looking for a quick, cheap way to make $500 gross profit just do the following:

    *Pick a profitable niche
    *Create an ebook that meets that niche's need/want/desire
    *Buy a domain name ($10)
    *Purchase domain hosting
    *Buy the $7 secrets script (uh $7 http://www.7dollarsecrets.com/ )
    *Sell 78 copies of the ebook each month (about 2.6 a day)
    *Repeat as many times as you like

    $10 - Domain Name
    $10 - Hosting
    $7 - $7 Secrets Script
    $500 Gross profit

    Total needed $527

    Remember, this is only one of hundreds of possible ways to make this kind of money. The problem isn't how to make the money. The problem is actually doing what you know to do.

    Pick ONE method. Implement it completely. Follow through with testing. If it doesn't work for you ask for help. If it still doesn't work try some other method.

    If you need help PM me.

    One bit of advice I give for newbies is to start out with the eBay Partner Network. Perhaps invest in the BANS script or PHPBay Pro script for Wordpress.

    Add fresh content to the sites about twice a week and buy some adwords. You can easily make much more than $500 a month with this method.

    Many people are hesitant to buy Adwords and people always say that you will lose money before you make money... that is complete rubbish.

    Do a little keyword research, create some laser targeted ads and you will be well on your way.

    This is a very complicated question, and no one answer will fit everyone. What is best for me may not be best for you. If you can write, then that's a great skill to have. If you can do research, that's a great skill. If you can barely connect to the internet due to a lack of knowledge on your part, that's a serious handicap.

    What resources can you put into this venture? For example bzimm suggested pick 10 niches, buy 10 domains and redirect those domains to an affiliate page for each niche, then write articles. If you don't have the money for 10 domains, then this isn't a feasible option, but perhaps scaling it back would be.

    Are you needing continuing income or are you looking for $500 by a set date?

    Answers to these questions will help most warriors get a better picture of what you can do to bring this money in.

    Sorry, I can't offer substantial help yet, I'm kind of blind as to what options would be viable for you and which goal you are aiming for.

    The very very very short answer for me was to build wordpress niche sites/review sites with phpBay integrated and go from there. I now make $500+ a month from just 3 of those sites.

    As Tim stated there are a number of different things that you can do to generate some income. Maybe you should ask yourself what skills you already possess and use those as a starting point.

    The best way is to send paid traffic to an offer that converts. Period.

    Get your numbers down and then scale. Obviously this takes time, but, once you've got it you'll be one happy person.

    Here's why...if you know what your strengths are it makes
    it a lot easier to build on and find areas you can lend your
    expertize and get paid for it...

    If you are good at excel, or access you might want to create
    a product for excel newbies if there is a market for it...

    Again you want to play off your strengths and having your
    own products is the best way to make damm good money
    online, just look at Mike F and all the other top players.
