What's the quickest way to start?

27 replies
I mean like what's the quickest way to start making money online so I can then start focusing on other more time consuming methods.

Of course I don't buy the "overnight millionare" fantasy, but I want to know, what do you think is the best way to start up fast if you haven't yet.

I say this because I've already bought a few courses and other things about IM, but most of them focus on how to make my own product, which I think might take me quite a while to do. So in the mean time I want to know how to start quickly.

PS. I'm a new member as you can see.

    Quickest way would be to offer a service (check the Warriors for Hire section for ideas).

    Since you don't want to create your own products just yet and want fast results I highly recommend you dive into Affiliate Marketing.

    The reason is simply because you can make a suplementary or even a main income from affiliate marketing, depending on how much time and effort you put into a campaign.

    Affiliate marketing is basically you promoting a merchants website and they give you commission on the sales you generate or the click throughs you send.

    There are a number of methods that you can use to make money from affiliate marketing both on and offline.

    Some methods include using your own website, mailing lists you have built up, ebooks, blogs, video blogs, forums, PPC advertising, local media advertising, and custom software.

    And so, I suggest you try out affiliate marketing, because it can be highly lucrative for you, you won't have to create your own product, and can be quite fun as well.

    Hope this helps.

    affiliate marketing is the fastest way, but unless you have a list or you know the right places to advertise you will struggle, you can try survey sites or ptc ptr sites pm me and I show you a few good ones....

    Wow, that was fast. I didn't think I'd get replys in so little time.
    =D

    @Zabrina: Thanks I think I'll go check it out!

    @Sonam: Yeah, one of the courses I got said that affiliate marketing was the way to go, but it only talked about Adwords advertising, and I've been reading up stuff in the forum before joining and some other places where it says that it's gotten too competitive and I don't know if I'll stand a chance. ^^;

    @ara67 Okay, before I even got into IM I was looking for Paid surveys as well, but since I live in Mexico many of the surveys I tried weren't applicable to me and I couldn't take them.

    Thanks for replying!
    ;D

    PS. You can call me Cheapy if you want, BTW. ^^

      Cheapy!...Bro! That's just ONE course and ONE way to drive traffic to your site.

      Yes, Adwords Advertising has become really competitive, costly, and annoying for affiliates (because Google hates affiliates and so they ban most if not all affiliate accounts...how do I know? well because it happened to ME!..and let me tell you...it SUCKS!).

      Anyway, my honest advice to you as a newbie to affiliate marketing is STAY AWAY from Google Adwords!

      And instead focus your efforts and time on building your LIST with FREE advertising, such as:
      • Forum marketing - if your niche is "internet marketing" then here at the Warrior Forum is where you should be 24/7, 365 days a year! Just be active, positive, and provide value in all your responses and questions. Oddly enough this will get people clicking your signature link, singing up to your opt-in page, and eventually purchasing your affiliate product.
      • Article marketing - Just focus on submitting ONE article a day to Ezinearticles.com FIRST, wait for it to be approved, and then submit that same article (with a little rephrasing to avoid having Google think it's duplicate content, which will bring your search engine rankings lower) to goarticles and articlesbase.
      • Blog commenting - Go on the TOP blogs in your niche and be the FIRST to comment on a blog post, making sure your comment is valuable and contributes to the post.

      Just focus on these three for now and master them. Be consistent and persistent. And DON'T GIVE UP!

      Within a couple weeks you should have a decent number of subscribers on your list to market to and you may even produce some sales.

      Best of luck.

      Sonam

        The best way to get started online is to create one good offer and promote the hell out it. Some people will tell you to learn all those things List Building, JV, Article Writing, etc. If you don't know what an offer is. It's something that is completely FREE or RISK FREE. From that, all the other stuff will fall inline.

        It sounds like writing articles, ghostwriting and also creating PLR articles and reports would be your quickest way to get money into your Paypal account (where you can actually spend it!) If you really focus on this over the next few days, I see no reason why you wouldn't be able to earn something within the next 7 days or less.

          Great reply. This will get you on your way... you can even branch your services to elance and guru.com... Along with this you can start affiliate marketing (niche blogging, is my preference).

      That kind of sound too good to be true, I would need to read a review from someone here at the forum to be a bit less skeptical. ^^;

          It also says there that I would get banned from there if I use it too much. That really doesn't sound very good.

            If you can write - then you immediately have the skills to earn an income. People are always seeking someone to ghost write articles and ebooks.

            If you want to "test the waters" you could try the website Fiverr for $5 bucks you can write an article. Whilst it might not appear to be much money for 300 words you might be able to produce these very quickly, once you get into the flow of writing.

            After that - offer your services on here. Or do PLR Articles to sell.

    Well like what the others recommend you to do, sell your service! Ever heard of Odesk? You can sign up as a provider and grab jobs you can bid on and profit with. you can be paid hourly or per job basis.

    Once you had your feet on the ground get rolling and use the money you make for buying WSO's that you think will help you in the long run, and yes maybe a domain name and a hosting as well.

    affiliate marketing is the best way to promote your products.

      I would do it this way. You will be making your product (sort of) and promoting affiliate programs at the same time.
      1. Set up auto responder with 30-50 messages, each making a call to action (this can be all affiliates if you like).
      2. Once you have your back end (your auto responder messages), go interview reputable marketers using Skype. The more reputable marketers, the better, and you'd want to pay their time if they wouldn't do for free because you're asking for their help. Do this with as many as marketers and interview topics should be something popular, newsworthy or current.
      3. Set up a Squeeze Page to promote this interview - this will be your lead generating tool.
      4. Set up an OTO
      5. Drive traffic - (you can outsource writing articles)

      This set up ensures that your lead source is something valuable (interview content with experts), every lead goes through the profit funnel to see your offers.

      Most marketers become good at generating leads, but setting up the backend initially ensures that you're going to receive ROI for every lead you're going to generate.

      So instead of creating a campaign you're doing everything you can to generate a lead and stop promoting after.... 4 messages (because you don't know what else to write), build the backend first (with the help of a coach or mentor perhaps), then finally promote the frontend.

      That's what I would do, personally.

    There is no company in this world who can help you in making money online its require little bit time, if you do not have product than you can make your own but unique blog after getting some traffic on your blog than you can apply for adsense account than your money will start to come. You can post your unique or antic product to ebay as well.

      HA, best comment I have read so far. So many responses in such little time, each comment explaining how to make money online. I find it interesting that it seems once you have the method down its very easy wash, rinse and reapply the same strategy to make money.

      I also wonder what percentage of those that seem to have a method down are making $2000+/month.

    As most of them here have adviced you to go for affiliate marketing and I suppose by now, you must have already started the process. I would also tell you to look up for my niche below for affiliate marketing if you have a site of your own. I am pretty sure you will get 10 times more than any other affiliate marketing niche

    Also one more quicker method is to sell ebooks of your own.
