I'm a MORON. How do I get started making money online?

I just bought Brandon and Jono's XMAS Super Bundle and am too dumb to look through it. Am considering getting "Blistering". I have ADD and Asperger's so I am not into doing anything creative. Just looking for simple paint by numbers programs/methods.

    I think you should re-read a thread you started some time ago....if you label yourself as 'unable', it will be your excuse every time...

    https://www.warriorforum.com/main-in...t-started.html

    Buying a group of 16 products when you know you have attention problems - won't help - nor will looking for other things to buy. There is no paint by number - so you have to move beyond that to get traction.

      Find an online business that already have a website and many of the automated features built-in so you don't have to worry about doing it yourself.

    What knowledge/skills/experience do you have that will translate to an online business? How much time do you have - how long can you focus - have you build a site or blog - have you worked in any online field so far?


    edit: You are not a moron - this 'online stuff' is not always easy and harder for some people than others.

    Then you don't have a chance.

    Am considering getting "Blistering".
    Blistering is a squeeze page that promotes Mosh's affiliate product. Nothing more.

    I have ADD and Asperger's
    So do I, but have been successfully running a business since my late teens. Using it as an excuse will get you nowhere.

    Here's a dose of reality - Online business is NOT for you! End of story.

    Literally everything you just said is the opposite of how an ADD brain thrives.

    First, you bought an big bundle of information. Then you say that you are too dumb to go through it. Having ADD, you should have known you weren't going to go through a shit load of information. The dumb part was buying it in the first place.

    Second, you say BECAUSE you have ADD, you don't want to do creative work, when in fact, an ADD brain does better at creative work than it does with details.

    And third, you want a simple paint by numbers strategy to follow, and yet, I bet you find it difficult to do the simplest of things in your life that most others find easy, like cleaning your home, or room, or even paying the bills.

    What you need is a reality check and someone in your life to help you get a handle on your ADD. Without that, you will never follow through with the amount of detailed work you have to do in a business centered around information and knowledge.

    Great question. to be honest first of all you must want to make money online. You have many ways but I found most did not work for me until I received the help I needed. To make it simple. STOP SELLING. When I stopped selling and gave advise and help I started to make money. First you have to understand the product you are selling so you can give advise but it works. Using free and paid advertising. Keep looking something will happen. All the best. Robert

    Learn to make your first $1 online without investing in anything. Then do it again and again. This usually means a service, though. The days where a beginner can jump in and make big bucks off an email are lone gone.

    It's not true that you are not creative, this is a very creative thread!

    The possibilities are endless, focus on 1 method at a time and test it!

    Oh my boy...


    I feel your situation...


    And I can give you one golden advice here:


    Dooooon't buy such courses ever again.


    It's a waste of your money, you will get overwhelmed, you will always realize that there is a missing piece and you will always buy more and more and moooore products..


    I was in the same situation and lost over $3000 because I bought useless stuff online and tried to figure it out...


    My advice is: find something, ONE golden and GOOD thing (not jono and brendan courses) and STICK to IT. Understand it, follow the plan EXACTLY.



    But before you do that: WORK on your MINDSET. This is CRITICAL. Read books like think and grow rich from napoleon hill, go to youtube search for mindset topics, start to change your subconcious mind by listening to success affirmations etc



    Good Luck, you can do that, and don't listen to people who say that you have no chance, everyone has if your attitude changes, which IS possible.

    There is NO MORRON here on Warrior Forum.

    Everybody here comes to jump from 'something'
    that push him/her to build his/her own (money making) life
    with online biz.

    There so many ebooks, videos, masterclass or anything...
    always said ONE thing to be rich with online business...

    BUILD Your Lists! Coz, Money is on the LISTS!

    So, I suggest you or anyone, to;
    1. Go get an autoresponder services; like aweber or AR or any else.
    2. Create a landingpage (squeezepage or leadpage).
    3. Give a FREE "High-Value" guide about something. like;
    "Money Making or any EVERGREEN topic".
    4. Drive traffic to your landing page.(Paid or Free).
    5. Collect email with that (point 1-4).
    6. Follow-up your lists with 3-1-3 system*.

    * Here's my 3-1-3 System (you must do in every week to your subscribers/lists);
    1. Day 1,2,3 send them free 1 high value content to your lists. Of course, it's must be related to your promises on your "landingpage".
    2. Day 4 send them 1 affiliate link (you're in).
    3. Day 5,6,7 send them free 1 high value content to your lists;
    4. Repeat it (point 1-3) every week;

    That's the "BIGGEST SECRET" about making money online.

      it can be so simple right
      but the important part which is missing here is that people also need to know about a good product, understand how successful funnels look like and understand how to communicate to their list and how to offer value to their list and how to market themselves to get people buying from them

      Great idea, especially now, since the traffic has significantly increased.
      I would do the simplest thing which is:
      1. Creating accounts in affiliate networks to get some offers (Clickbank, Maxbounty and so on)
      2. Creating accounts in traffic sources (Zeropark, PropellerAds, Facebook, Google Ads)
      3. Getting a tracker to see which traffic source is performing best.

      I would start with pop ads as these are cheaper and it's really easy to test it

      Good luck!

    This is a tough read. I just stumbled on it and hate seeing someone with such negative self-talk. Even if you did start to make things work you'd likely sabotage it because you would assume that if a moron like you could do it then it's not worth doing. Sadly many people with ADHD, etc. have been told their whole lives that they're lazy and stupid, or they felt that way themselves because they have an executive function disorder and thought they "should" be able to do more. The world was built around more neurotypical ways of being. That doesn't mean that you can't do great things, you just have to find what fits you instead of trying to make things fit you that don't.

    I say this as someone that pursued many paths that really didn't fit me with undiagnosed ADHD at the time. Spent many years playing a game I wasn't going to win. Felt like a loser, had that negative self-talk, and once I started working on my inside game personally and worked toward things that were more authentic (not just stimulating as my ADHD brain runs toward those things) I started to find my way. Luckily I already had one business that was my everyday work but I eventually transitioned to things that meant more to me. Some with ADHD will find the types of work mentioned here on the WF fulfilling, others might not be meant for that even though they're attracted to it. That was me, and it might be many others.

    Simple yet powerful method -

    Hi - the very best thing I have learned over the years is to FOCUS on 1, yes 1 SINGLE method and don't stop until you perfect it. If you keep jumping around from ecom, to twitter, physical products, email marketing, video channel marketing, etc. the list goes on and on, you'll find in a year, you are right back at square 1.

    HOWEVER - let's say you choose email marketing (my personal favorite) just do some numbers...

    After 1 year, you could have an business bringing in a conservative, easy, $50/day...

    Month 1 - you set up your landing page, list and email sequence and begin marketing
    Every day, you drive 50 visitors to your landing page (either free traffic like blogging, facebook posts, twitter posts, YT vids, etc.) OR paid traffic, approx. $0.40/click * 50 clicks/day = $20/day in ad spend
    If your opt in page converts at say 35% (pretty average), you'll get approx. 17 New subscribers per day.
    17 * 30 = 510 subscribers per month
    (now some will drop off and unsubscribe, but just hypothetically here)

    Month 2 = 1020 subscribers
    Month 3 = 1530 subscribers
    and after 1 year doing the same thing every day (50 visits, 17 subscribers per day)
    you'd have 6,120 subscribers on your email list.

    Now - I haven't even gotten into the breaking even portion of your list building. Along the way when you're sending 50 clicks per day to your landing page - you can provide the visitors with value and direct them to an offer which you are an affiliate for and will make money if they buy. Don't sell things to them - RECOMMEND things to them.

    Like, hey, this email is all about getting traffic to your blog/website/ecom site, whatever. I ran across this really cool program that shows you how to utilize social media and get 50 visitors per day in just an hour worth of work! pretty neat, so if you're having issues getting traffic, check this out while you have a minute.

    and then link to the offer in your email.

    There's quite a bit more to it than just that, but I think you get the idea... FOCUS day after day, month after month, and if you really take this seriously, you can have a good size email list in just a year. Just think if you double your efforts = 100 visits per day = 12,240 subscribers after 1 year.

    Why do you think the big names in this arena always show how they're making $1000+ PER DAY online?

    It's because of this...

    They started 10 years ago - they started off strong and got waaay more than 100 visits to their landing pages per day and built up email lists in the 100's of thousands... like 500,000 to 1,000,000 people on their list.

    Now - of course people unsubscribe and what not, but they keep adding and adding and adding more subscribers.

    When they email their list of 500,000 subscribers, they get probably 10,000-15,000 people to open it and another 2000-3000 to CLICK the link... now if they're really good and have a great relationship with their list - they can send a single email and make $10,000s in a single DAY. It's not uncommon, but you have to START somewhere.

    Hope that helps any - have a good one

    if you have any questions feel free to let me know - I'm not one of the big gurus by any means, but I have been doing this for several years.

    The first step is simple...

    Get out of the MORON stage, and start moving towards the NORMAL stage. And then move towards the INTELLIGENT stage. Eventually, you can start going to the GENIUS stage.

    But to do that...

    ... you need to...

    ... stop buying marketing courses and start buying courses that'll help you increase your intelligence and mental ability!

    No, I'm serious.

    Start reading more. Start buying more books. Start studying up more on how to learn faster, quick... how the brain works... how to get creative (if you need to)... psychology... etc.

    Seriously... I am shocked at the number of people who think they can start making money online without having a solid baseline.

    If you have problems focusing, learning, remembering, and understanding stuff... don't even think about making money right now.

    You have bigger problems to deal with.

    And I'm not just talking about you.

    99% of people have the same problem. Even if they're not, or they don't think they are, MORONS.

    As Jim Rohn once said:

    "Your level of success will seldom exceed your level of personal development."

    How are you going to learn how to make money online if you're too dumb to learn?

    Simple answer. Stop being dumb. Start investing time into learning how to be smart. Once you've done that, then come back and start learning how to make money online...

    Keep it really simple.

    Find affiliate programs that offer "done for you funnels" to use in your promotions.

    I know of a few high converting ones where you just send traffic.

    All of the email follow ups are in place along with the monetization aspect.

    If you win, they win.

    Even when building my own funnels I sometimes use the emails provided in the affiliate section of the vendor.

    And yes, I make sales with them.

    Is your own funnel better?

    Of course! But you need to start somewhere.

    This will help get you started while you learn marketing.

    The simplest answer I can give is try affiliate marketing. It's for dummies. You don't need to create a product. You don't need to handle products and other complicated marketing and sales matters. The affiliate marekting program or network does that. All you do is find a buyer and get a commission if they buy something. But should it all be complicated, you can get training at Wealthy Affiliate. There are thousands of members ready to help you succeed in affiliate marketing. Good luck.

      If it were for dummies, 100% of people who try would succeed yet only 5% or so do.


      All you have to do is find a buyer is a tall order.


      And inaccurate. If you want to make $1000 a month and each sale makes you $10, you need 100 buyers month in and month out.


      That's an even taller order.

      Aim to sort out a problem in an area you are interested in.

      For interest im a type 2 Diabetic and I have a blog and YouTube channel with health and diet tips. I have links to a few products and I've made a few affiliate commissions.

      I think that's the direction to go in, try and build passive income.

      If you are really stuck for money sell your services on fiver.

      Actually saw a video other day that discussed how article writers can make big money on fiver.. Up to 100 per article, not a fiver! - although u would probably have to start at a fiver..
