      Goodness, you can make money online anyway, but when it comes to doing the genuine thing, a good old fashioned Wordpress blog is one of the best foundations.

      • I agree! And wordpress is "free" and easy to learn and setup.

        So a Wordpress website with content marketing, videos, affiliate stuff

        Is always a good start

    Actually you just come to the right forum. You only need to spend your time reading a lot and use the search function more often to find what you're looking for.

    You can follow accounts on social media accounts and draw eyeballs to your affiliate redirect url

    It doesn't cost any money but it's not FREE

    Why?

    You have to spend time doing it....

    But at least, you're not spending any cash

  • start making video of your unique talent or anything intresting and earn through video marketing.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11112650].message }}
  • A couple of things to note:
    - You should actually go further and study just what it is that they are selling so that you can learn how and what people are selling.

    - Also, you should begin blogging and video and promote affiliate products. You can also package up your unique knowledge/skills/passion such as a hobby into an info-product and sell that.

    Hope this helps. Good luck and keep studying.

    You've been around awhile. You've started threads in an attempt to be helpful to others. You've done a lot of reviews of WSOs.

    I think the real question is what hasn't been working for you? Did none of those reviewed WSOs actually work or did you not work them? Do you jump from thing to thing instead of focusing?

    Do you have a website, hosting, email list, etc.?

    Even if someone gave you a "genuine" way of earning, what makes you think this one will work where everything else, apparently, hasn't? No one is going to give you anything much different than what you already know.

    So, what has been holding you back?

      Little add on the good point you make Mark about genuine ways to MMO.

      If you want to do it right, in a genuine, authentic way, this usually takes months to years of smart, intelligently, persistent work. Really dwell on that word K; much of what you see is far from genuine, and much of what you see is not sustainable. If you step up to the plate, learn from these pros, and consider dropping a few bucks at least on a self-hosted WP blog you can be so genuine, folks will want you to start lying, like me LOL.

      Or as Robert said below, building up from a free FB Page, sharing value, and offering affiliate products may work too. But ya gotta be all in on this stuff.

      These are the million dollar questions. I'm shocked the OP hasn't returned to answer them or any others.

      Have the mods around here seriously gotten so lazy that you can start a thread with a direct link to receive money to your PayPal account in your sig?

    There are a numbers of way to earn money online without paying any fees. But you have to make a little bit investment. You can start new channel on youtube, or new blog site, by create facebook page also. Basically it is totally depend on everyone personal interest and thinking.

    Start a simple Fan page at FB. Gradually grow it and offer some captivating content and maybe later on throw it a product or two that could help them.

    Earning money is as easy as having two bikes, one to ride and one to rent.

    The way you make money online is just the same as you do it offline:

    You need something to sell
    Someone to sell it to
    Match your offer to your market need.


    We all start from zero and have to go through a learning curve. Now what does make a difference in the results you will get is the quality of the questions you ask..

    How to make money online is a very wide question with very broad answers.

    Let's reframe you Origin question for something in these lines:

    1. How can i start a legit online business?

    2. What kind of a business do i want? we can all get to the same target in different ways...different business model ( yet you already spotted the process of making money which is getting fresh leads into the sales funnel and then promote products and services.. )

    3. Who is already doing exactly what i want to do? Then make an effort to ask directly for specific directions. Some will be paid some will be free. Take what you need and get stuff done.

    Frankly speaking things happened for me when I stopped listening to everyone out there decided what to do, put my sales funnel together and start driving traffic, built my first list, made sales and so on.

    We all start from where we are with what we have got...but what road do you feel is best going towards?

    Hope this will give you some clarity..

    The best way to earn money online without paying an online fee is by going to google, and ordering your pay pal business debit card immediately. Its absolutely free, do that. Once we have done so we have to reverse engineer what we are doing here.. whats our goal in the next thirty days? five thousand bucks? and we're trying to get there from scratch? what can we start providing in return for that amount of money now without having to make an investment? more importantly what are the platforms out there that allow us to leverage their products for free) - click bank, commission junction, jvzoo, market health etc... plus where else can we go to get cash fast? - garage sale hauling, thrift store, ross - outlests to resell onlin through ebay, amazon fba, etsy, wish, facebook marketplace... how can we flip money now fast, so that we can double it. Triple it, Once we have five hundred dollars its a lot easier to get to a thousand, two thousand etc... but the most important thing to realize with all of this is, anyone can go outside get a bucket and a sponge and start hustling and have fifty dollars in the next thirty minutes to an hour. Understand that fifty dollars in flippable and you can invest and make more profit.. The real problem here is constantly trying to search for ways to avoid investing into your business, understand that if you don't have money, you have time to go make money. Anyone can go to click bank, take a high selling profit, start blogging, create videos and make commissions through a sales funnel.

    Hi Krish2007,

    I first started making money online selling my graphic design services, it didn't cost my anything to get started.

    So maybe if you have a talent like programming or if you good at graphic design that could be something.

    Another way could be to create 1 video a day with screencast o matic (its free as well) and upload it to Facebook and Youtube.

    Another great way could be doing live videos on FB. You can then promote this live video on appropriate groups on FB.

    I have been doing videos and they have a cumulative effect and eventually they'll will get you sales.

    You might want to consider joining some affiliate program which is free and then promote those programs through videos and FB.

    Ok, just pouring out some ideas from my head

    Thanks,
    Robin

      so ok this guy commented on this tread and willie crawford an amazing marketer and old time warrior (even a warrior longer then me) commented on this classified thread and thanked him. Its a book about building a list. No offense but building a list is what you HAVE to do if you want to be a marketer. So just buy an autoresponder if you don't have one. Come on you need it. And read the book it looks good have not even read it but its a freebee so why not. Sorry I commented on the wrong comment its for the comment above and the same link you see here is also above this comment. http://www.warriorforum.com/warrior-...bers-fast.html

    Hello,

    For all intents and purposes, all the information you require, is available, for free. There are a wealth of blogs, free eBooks, forums, YouTube videos and so on.

    You can even find the $$$$ (four figure) IM programs on YouTube.

    The biggest challenge comes from combining the information you have learned into something useful. The principles are free and simple. The systems, that combine this into one - two - three and hold you by the hand cost money. The clearer they are, the more they tend to cost.

    However, time equals money and money equals time. So at the end of the day, you need to spend one of your two key resources which amount to about the same thing. You can for example do a free traffic generation strategy but it is going to take away time, time that can be used to earn money somewhere else.

    It is a balancing game. You can't outsource everything but some things are better left undone or sent to someone else to be done.

    Best regards,
    Razvan Rogoz

    There is a lot of money to be made with resell rights products and private label resell rights products. Reselling a product created by somebody else is so much easier than creating your own product from scratch.

    There are literally tens of thousands of products available on the Internet that come with resell rights. Each one of these products can become a great income source for you with just a little bit of work.

    Even jobs have upfront fees! For example, time and money spent acquiring the necessary skills for a job, tools or travel costs for interview, as well as whatever clothing and shoes might be required. Professional jobs have even higher upfront fees. For example, a surgeon must not only do K-12, Bachelor's degree and medical school, but also internship, residency and perhaps even specialty training. So I would not agree that something's not genuine when there's an upfront fee.

  • One, there's no "easy" way, no matter who tries to tell you whatever it is that they tell you.

    Selling your services is the best way to start. As ryanbiddulph points out, start with that humble Wordpress blog and make it work.

    Once you are on the go, by making money off your services, you can always experiment with everything else out there.

    Ways are many that u can follow on..but the best one is affiliate marketing at least to my knowledge.e

    Why would they teach you for free?

    When you go to the Dentist, he is asking you for money....Does that mean he is a scam? No, it means his time is valuable.

    I don't even know you and I already know your mindset is the problem.

    You see, in school the teacher is teaching and some students will get 100% on the exam, some will get 20%, some 55%, some 70%, etc. ALL THE STUDENTS GOT THE SAME INFORMATION, but not all of them got 100%...Why? Because in the end it is all about execution.

    In the online marketing world people NEVER SAY: Oh, I failed because I didn't study the videos enough, I failed because I didn't put enough time into it....NEVER. I only things like : ¨I tried this and It didn't work, it is a scam¨.

    No it is not a scam, YOU ARE a scam.

    You have a fixed mindset, not a growth mindset. You don't invest enough of your energy into the PROCESS.

    Every time I do private coaching and I look at the website of the person, there is ALWAYS SOMETHING WRONG, ALWAYS.

    The teachings are not the problems, it is the students.

    Nobody says it like it is but I will.

    If you study a method, take notes, watch the videos 2-3 times and actually EXECUTE PROPERLY, you will succeed.

    And yes, you probably will have to invest some money to learn, like in school.
