My idea of an online business does not entail messaging forum members with an affiliate link as it does not require any real knowledge to do so. I could take that path myself but it doesn't feel right. Many of the "get rich" affiliate programs seem like scams to me and unfortunately I do not have the financial means to fall prey to them.
I've been advised to look into product creation in the IM niche - but how can one do that if they don't have any prior knowledge? Which leads me to believe that there is an overwhelming amount of duplicate content floating around online. I've also observed forum members commenting on each others WSO's for returned favours. Maybe I'm just being too skeptical, who knows, but that's the general feeling I get when observing certain members here.
I have purchased some WSO's that are loaded with affiliate links for auto responders and squeeze page sites. Do these IM's even have their own lists, or do they focus on selling get rich methods on this forum?
I'm not quite sure where I'm going with this post, other than the fact that I'm unsure of how to proceed from here. I live on a small island where unemployment is extremely high and feel desperate and weary at the same time. I was living and working in Canada as a call centre agent but had to move back home to take care of family. I'm no different than the next guy/girl looking to earn money online, but I'm really hoping that someone somewhere can point me in the "right" direction.
I found the warrior forum a year ago by doing a google search on "how to make money online" which led me to a website of an internet marketer who recommended duplicating content and paying people on fiverr to record false testimonials. He had sent me a link to this forum in one of his newsletters.
I'm not really good at writing, as English is not my first language, therefore I don't feel confident enough to write content, at least not without someone proof reading my stuff first. I'm not a very confident person in general which is probably holding me back even more. I would just like to promote a genuine product that actually helps people. I'm not sure what that is or how to go about it, which is why I need some help. Obviously my main objective is to earn a living without misleading people. Please someone, somewhere enlighten me.
