I've worked in eCommerce, web design, Cisco and Microsoft engineering etc. etc. and now work exclusively on designing IT solutions for High Schools and Uni's. The money is ****. What with rent, bills, payments to the ex, petrol and the UK tax system I have very little left.
I started looking at the internet in a serious way to make money when I separated from the dragon - I have time on my hands now. I have a reseller account so can pretty well fire up as many domains and sites as I want - I have about 10 now all in different niches, some autoblogs and so on - but none making any decent money as yet - hence why I came to this forum.
Looking at the offers thread, it just turns my stomach, I mean the sales patter is all very samey. The web pages, again with the little box and CD shots even though you know it's an eBook (why guys????). The bold red text, the usually faked earnings screenshots - you know, my old head thinks - if this scheme is making you thousands a month then why are you trying to sell an eBook on here for $10 a hit with a usual cap limit of 100 sales? It doesn't make sense - c'mon - it doesn't does it?
Whilst I'm sure, and there must be several actual schemes explained on here for sale obviously which do work - and I have been tempted, it is a minefield for someone like me. I don't have that much money to play around with. I do subscribe to Angela's backlinks - I know they work for me but wading through this sea of making money online is really difficult.
I hate videos, I know how to install WP, I know how FTP works, I too have seen the man at the market using this amazing knife which cuts granite and when you buy it and take it home it won't cut tin foil.
People, I have read nearly every thread on this board in the last few weeks. They leave me, well, indifferent. I want to go ahead and purchase one but something tells me not to be a fool - at the end of the day it's my sons inheritance I'd be blowing on possibly snakeoil.
So my question, which is a call for help really - what works? Don't say read the threads in the forum - I have. I also have a limited budget or I'd buy everything and evaluate them all - if I could do that I wouldn't be here!
I'm not looking for that golden bullet answer - this is what works - you must buy it! But for a guy in my position - not a noob in the net world or in the tech world, but somewhat drowning in the sea of information on so many different schemes all delivering the same promise. I just want to devote my spare time as I do now ands see actual results instead of logging into my Adsense and Clickbank accounts and doing the facepalm manoeuvre - again!
Any help appreciated - I'll prob get flamed though!
