Hello I'm quite new here. I do know a thing or two about the web. I have a few forums that I run. They aren't active though. I'm looking for a way to earn some money.

I'm spending my time now learning all I can by reading a whole bunch of marketing e-books as well as books from the library and any online information I can get my hands on.

I was looking into Auto Blogs. I'm thinking maybe I should start a blog or a online store or something....

I really need to start making some money.

    There are many options out their, but I suggest that you start with something or a "niche" that you are interested in. Online business takes work so you will want to have an interest in any industry you choose to be involved in.

    Blogs can definitely generate money, stay focused, learn all you can, and pick a topic of interest to you!

    You took the right first step.

    Study your books and more importantly, put the concepts into action IMMEDIATELY. The biggest error I made as a newbie online entrepreneur was standing on the sidelines. Get your book smarts but turn them into street smarts immediately by experimenting with what you've learned.

    As for how to make money blogging is a powerful tool to develop authority. Whatever niche you choose - some strong possibilities listed by my fellow warriors above - considering running a blog to help with your marketing and networking efforts.

    All the best!

      I would try a niche site with cancer and/or related things.... Medical sites pay well with google adsense and other contextual advertisements on the pay-per-click schedule - up to $2-3 per click.

    One thing I learned is to Pick one niche and stick with it. In due time you can dominate your network in your niche.

    Pick like one of those micro niches that have small but tight communities. example
    People that BARBEQUE, Bird Watchers, Hiking Group.

    If you run forums, you could start there, but first you need to make a big effort to make that forum very informative when your forum grow the members will help you on that hard task.

    Then you coul market some relevant product to the forum.

    Wow, I'm not sure if you are pulling people's chains or being serious with your questions.

    Assuming you are serious, go take the free course by Ed Dale and crew:

    The Challenge

    You can take it at your own pace (be it hours or months) and it will give you an understanding of the IM space.

        Not sure what niche your forums are based on ... but if there's money in those markets ... why not market them since you already have them?

        The people should already be talking about their thoughts/desires/wishes/wants on there anyway ... get more people visiting your forum and put up ads/offers that are laser targeted to what they're all talking about. Make it "THE" forum to visit & monetize it with what the members want.

        That could be contacting others & selling them ad space on the site ... it could be your own affiliate links to related/desired products ... you could develop products they want or even make it a paid membership forum with killer content on there if the niche is the paying kind.

        Anyway, that's just a few ideas there to expand what you already have on the web.

    The most important thing in IM is TRAFFIC.

    If you're serious about IM, then I suggest you get a course on traffic and shut yourself out from your world (for a week or so) to STUDY IT.

    DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING FOR ANOTHER TRAINING.

    Stick to it like glue. TAKE ACTION and implement every detail you learn.

    Trust me... you're gonna be making a ton in income!

    I am tapping into already established sources of traffic, e.g. banner ads on niche sites that are already generating traffic, guestblogging and ezine advertising. The ads cost some out-of-pocket expenses up front, but may be worth the quicker than usual result, plus they are much "safer" than PPC for me.

      I will not sell you one but I will give you one. I will give you a site with 5 products to sell and all you need is hosting and a domain. In return when you are marketing your websites you market a couple of mine at the same time.

      Sound fair?

      Now, to make sure we both get traffic and you start earning income for yourself and me I will give you more products.

      You can keep 100% of the money you earn from the sites, these sites will be all yours hosted on your domain to the payment gateway of your choice, all you have to do is market.

    step 1) Use this forum. it is a dooozy if you want to be successful online.

    step 2) Implement what you read in this forum.. yes some info in here is utter crap. But there are nuggets and bits and piece from time to time that has made me some nice coin.

    Step 3) Rinse and repeat.

    It sounds simple, but it is really up to you and the hard work you are willing to put in.

      If you have a website, learn how to drive traffic to it. But make sure you drive the right traffic. If you don't have a website, try affiliate marketing to start with. With affiliate marketing you don't need a website. All you do is promote someone else's product and make commissions out of that. You can earn a lot of money just doing that!
      All the best.

    I agree that you should learn everything about internet marketing in this forum without spending any money upfront. The Warrior forum is a true school for all newbies.

    The Squidu forum is also excellent, and everyone there is very friendly.

    You should learn how to easily create many Squidoo lenses and make money with them, without any cost. Here is lens that teaches you the basics:

    If you think about it what is money and what it means to be making money? Money is reward received for service rendered. If you want to make money you have to provide service. Don’t think about what you are going to get focus on helping other people and the money will come automatically.

    My 2 cents...

    Firstly had to apply because you say you run forums. And your in need for quick cash.How about the following.

    1)making Advertisment space within the forums, and Google Adsense/Cpa offers which pay good money for leads. No surprise if the forums are active peoplle will click on a offer when topics seem less intrested to them(we all do it) which can lead to a few dollars by adsense or Cpa. Here is some tips

    When you have the offers by banner advertisments on your page or forum. It all comes down to getting traffic(ill explain that bit in a moment) here is a few places u could try such as link swapping with other forum webmasters who may have the traffic already. You could look on Google at the same competition you have and just shoot a few emails saying who you are and how you would like to work with them for a small fee could they advertise your forum on site of theres and cut a deal to them also you do the same (link swapping ect)

    Other ways also are link directorys.Aviod the ones on Google that say link swaps for 100 dollars 10000000 sites ect, most harvest the links and hardly ever send the link to any site, There are directorys with a brief explaination of your forum and site and link will place it in directorys which Google loves (Oldest one i know is dmoz.org) but very hard on that i mentioned to get into.

    2)They aren't active though. I'm looking for a way to earn some money.

    suggest you take time away from the ebooks And make a dairy for activaty for the whole day,A business plan.Write down what you are going to do to get them forums packed form the wrafters of people chatting away.

    If your stuck for traffic

    write about the forum as a news reporter and not a salepage and sent the article up to The Following places
    Prweb.org
    Bignews.com
    Reddit.com
    Stumbleupon.com
    Mister-wrong.com
    Enzine-articles.com
    Articledashboard.com
    articlesally.com

    Or just use a Article Submitter and change the article a little to pass Enzine's approval and press realease,

    If your no good at articles then cyberhubonline.com is a great place to get articles wrote on your forums for cheap price or here in warriors for hire on the warrior forum. With every Article you submit you get backlinks back to your forum making it easy to see in the search engines like Google.Meaning free traffic also.

    hope that helps any more info needed please drop me a line

    I really need to start making some money.
    First of all, stop thinking about auto blogs. They are not automatic, and they do not generate money quickly. I know that autoblogs seem to imply quick and easy implementation, but they're anything but that, especially if you want to develop a significant income from them. Please trust me on this.

    Since you seem fairly new to IM, I'd recommend sticking to one method for now to avoid getting distracted by information overload. I'd definitely recommend getting into the 30 day challenge as mentioned above, because it is structured and very focused, and I feel that this is exactly what you need at the moment. In addition to that, it deals with setting up blogs quickly and effectively (this is definitely not autoblogging), and you have stated above that this is the area you're interested in. This challenge will give you the perfect foundation to get started off on the right foot in IM, so I'd suggest joining it right away.

    Try ebay.. There is a lot of money to be made as a seller on eBay. Thousands and thousands of sales are made each day, resulting in a lot of income for a lot of sellers. And there is still room for you if you want to get involved - whether you want to earn some part time cash or set up a whole new full time business on the side. It's easy work to get started earning money on eBay. Once you've signed up for your free account the best way to get a feel for what selling is like is to auction off some of your personal items that you no longer want. If you are going to start buying stock to resell, you'll do better by getting some basic selling experience first.
