Hi everyone,

My name is Lee im new to warrior, ive been trying different money makers online for a few months now and still never made anymore than $3.90 through peerfly email submits! Ive spent the guts of £200 on different quick money making systems and still yet to find something that works! Can someone please point me in the direction of something that works?
I know all this $100,000 in a month is load of bull but a system that makes something? anything? Even $100 a month plus would do me!

Please can someone push me in the right direction, im starting to feel bit lost now with so many to choose from and im sick of forking out my money on rubbish old hat systems that dont work!

Thanks for your time hope someone can help me get started!

    You have to stick with a certain method for a while, mate. It's like starting a diet right now and expecting to have a 6 pack the next morning.

    Don't ever open up your wallet ever again. The only thing you need to pay for is a domain name, and a hosting account, which would be $25 at most and isn't even a priority until you make enough to pay for that online.

    Work on gaining your knowledge, then go from there. Don't copy anyone, create your own idea, split test, see what went right and what went wrong, then focus on what went right and scale it up.

    You weren't being specific enough on the skills you currently have so I cant really point you anywhere but here to learn as much as you can, then to start some income try doing gigs on Fiverr and work on other stuff while at it.

    Hope I helped a bit!

      Anyone that blindly follows what they think they are being told about any method and doesn't use their own initiative and make their own decisions is bound to fail.

      Why is it that so many people come here and say "tell me how to make money online"?

      You wouldn't go into a Job Centre or employment office and just say "tell me how to make money" would you? You'd ask about jobs that you know you can do. If you have back problems you probably wouldn't apply or a job as a shelf stacker. If you can't climb ladders you probably wouldn't apply or a job as a window cleaner. If you are allergic to soaps you wouldn't probably wouldn't take a job cleaning cars. If you can't add up you wouldn't apply for a job in a bank ...... etc

      Unless or until you are willing/able to assess your own skills, interests and abilities then no-one can help you.

      If you think before you start that a certain method won't make you a dime, THAN it won't make you a dime. You first have to believe that it works,
      All business model about IM you'll find work, some better than other but they all work.

        Perhaps not everything works, especially for the long term, but if you go into something with the defeatist attitude that you currently have, I'm afraid to say that your chances of making anything work are pretty slim.

        One thing you should definitely do is quit buying into those "pushbutton" quick riches type programs, because those will never work, at least not as promised. Focus on a solid workable plan, and don't expect instant results either. One of the issues here is that you seem to have bought into the "make money overnight" dream promised by all these devious and conniving marketers - erase that from your mind, because this sort of mindset will only hurt your chances of succeeding.

    The Key point is that the one who carry out the real work is not the system but you human....
    Slow down your peace and try to learn something useful about online marketing strategy.
    Meanwhile , a system will boost you to sucess until you reall master the knowledge.
    The most important thing is that you should learn the method of making money not just but a system that claim they can make money....

    Lee it is very possible and you can earn a lot more than just $100 a month, believe me!

    The best or maybe I should say the simplest way is to set up a blog (use wordpress) and write a few 400+word articles each day and submit to the blog.

    Then submit these to www.ezinearticles.com

    You'll need to monetise your blog with adsense or affiliate ads or your own product.

    Keep writing articles daily for at least 2 months and you should be making "some money" by then.

    If it works, just keep going or setup more sites and do the same.

    You need to pick a niche where you know people are searching for and spending money. So use this tool Google.

    Target those searches by adding the key phrases a few times in your articles....and Google will eventually "do its thing".

    There are easier ways but it appears you are far too young in your journey and don't have the slightest idea why you have failed so far, so it's hard to teach you to get into the right mindset or lean from your mistakes when you have no idea.

    Try the model above and you'll save years of failing, trust me.

        Lee,

        You have been attracted to something shiny again, haven't you?

        Go back up to Paul's post above and follow his advice. Doing that will make you money, buying shiny things will not.

          I was reading above where someone above said not to copy anybody else. Just read and learn, then put together your own method. Test, experiment, and test some more.
          That poster is dead on right. You can spend time here and other IM forums learning how this deal works then do this:
          • Get a hosting service
          • Buy a domain
          • Learn from this and other forums niche and keyword research (do this first then buy the domain)
          • Pick a product to promote
          • Sign up for an affiliate program
          • Setup a Wordpress blog
          • Write some content and slap in your affiliate link
          • Then, backlink, backlink, and backlink some more.
          Simple as that. But learn these techniques from reading the forums first. No need spending hard earned money and taking risks losing it when Internet Marketing really isn't rocket science.

          With a little luck, you might develop your own method and technique that works better than what other marketers try to sell you.

          Good luck to you!

            Great Post! When you break it down like that it sounds so simple - but yet so many people overcomplicate things! Not everything that you put online is going to work but if you work hard and work deliberately (not just throw stuff out there and make it stick) then you will recognize success!

    I hope you are not looking for "quick money making", 'cos unless you sell your own products, you are unlikely to make quick money.

    I agree with the hosting / domain name thing menched elsewhere.

    There are others on this string too. One of the key problems with IM is that there is a myth that it's easy. If it were easy everyone would be doing it.

    Focus is key - stay on here but make sure your credit card is nowhere near! Choose a method which suits your skills (if you are not technically-minded, try something less technical for instance). A wise marketer said to me "Remember, you are either buying or selling. Choose one or the other. If you are selling, don't buy!".

    I have learned a massive amount from this forum and wished I had come on here earlier. You are in the right place! Stay and learn.

    Good luck, but remember - it's not easy. Some things are simple, but it's still not easy and takes a lot of time and focus.

    Oh and something I forgot to say. If you REALLY feel that you have been scammed (i.e product not as sold in sales letter / video, product not delivered etc), then COMPLAIN. AND obtain a refund. Not only will that replenish your wallet, perhaps to pay for the hosting / domains, but also, only then will the payment processors learn that they are working with scammers, and only then will the scammers get hit in their wallet. Keeping quiet only enables the scammers to stay in business and to keep doing it. If they have too many refunds, they will lose their payment processors.

    I'm not convinced that you do realise these "quick money making systems" are a "load of bull" - otherwise:
    a) you wouldn't have continued to buy them, and
    b) you wouldn't come here asking for yet another one!

    You need to decide what interests you and what you can do. Spend hours reading through the posts on this forum.

    All the advise and all the clues you will ever need are right here. Work out what your skills and interests are and what you think you will stick at.

    If you can't write - don't become a writer. If you can't code, don't become a coder. If you know nothing about martial arts, don't promote them.

    In other words - what CAN you do? What DOES interest you?

    There are loads of ways to get started online and all are mentioned in great details somewhere in this forum.

    Read, read and read some more. Get a feel for which Warriors you trust and believe and which are just here to sell you the system in their sig links.

    The first thing you need to do is quit jumping from program to program. Really knuckle down and focus on only one method, and don't expect instant results either.

    You said you made $3.90 from your peerfly email submits - how much time did you actually put into this endeavor? I'm guessing not much. If you'd dedicate yourself to spending two to three hours a day over the course of a month driving traffic to your peerfly email submit offer, surely you'd end up with at least $100+ a month, very conservatively?

    Something tells me that you've been jumping all over the place, and that you lack consistency and focus in what you do. Don't buy anything else, instead focus on just one method consistently over at least several weeks - I promise you'll be pleasantly surprised at the end results if you do this.

    You don't need a domain name or a hosting account to make money online. Yes it helps but you do not need it. The problem is many think you must join this program and that program and you do not have to join any program. Everything you need t make money is within you right now.

    I was already screamed at for trying to help so I will be good. If you are able to contact me then I will be glad to show you exactly what I mean.

    Hi Claire

    I'm sure we would all like to know how you make money online? No disrespect but it really is not necessary to keep posting on every thread about an article marketing site, other members will just regard you as a spammer. Which without making a real contribution to the thread it is? But if you would like to tell us how you have succeeded without all the advertising I'm sure other newbies would be more than interested.

    Lee if you take the time to visit some of the better forums like this one, and do your research you will find all the information you need for FREE! It's not rocket science, what you need is credibility, so start a blog, be honest about the niche your in, make some posts and visit similar blogs and comment leaving your link. Monetise the blog with adsense etc and just keep going. Set up accounts on facebook, squidoo etc and make similar posts get a fan page and keep posting as often as possible, get established and start making money then set up another. You will learn all you need to know from others, just ask?

    Regards
    CD

      Hi Lee and welcome to the forum

      You have already had some great advise from Rosetrees and Ernie - please read that and read it again and then start whatever you do next with a better mindset..

      I do not think your mindset is all that good right now and very negative, which will not help you, whatever you try and do.. for example the title of this thread "Something that works! sick of scams!" implies that you think that everything you have tried is a scam whereas, that is most likely not true of all you have tried, just because it didn't work for you, does not make whatever "it" was, a scam, it just means it didn't work for you.

      Another mindset thing - STOP thinking of things you can do online to make an income as "money makers" - start thinking of this as your business that you are about to start to build, be it, full or part time and treat it seriously.. there are not many good businesses that are built over a couple of weeks, they all take time, commitment, effort and consistency

      Good luck

            Hi Lee,

            The fastest, easiest no-hassle way to make money is to sell shovels.

            Let me explain: in the 1849 California Gold Rush - it was the 'shovel sellers' who made the big bucks - NOT the gold prospectors.

            All those prospectors had to have shovels and mining equipment to hunt for the gold. But very few of those prospectors ever found that elusive gold. In fact, most went home, penniless and disillusioned.

            Meanwhile, the shovel sellers made MILLIONS in cold hard cash.

            One of the wealthiest was Sam Brannan, who made up to HALF A MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR (really BIG MONEY in those days).

            Eventually he made so much - just selling shovels - he owned about a fifth of the entire city of San Francisco.

            Yet he never bothered looking for a single nugget of actual gold.

            So, if you want to make money in the 'internet gold rush of 2011', think seriously about what skill you can offer to other 'internet gold prospectors'.

            So that's your market. The next step is to think what they need and willing to pay you for.

            One of the easiest 'shovels' to produce - and which almost everyone needs more of - is content. I'm sure you've heard the expression 'Content is King'.

            Everyone knows this, but few are willing to create their own content. It's a real headache for very many - SO ... they are delighted to pay others to make the problem go away and do it for them.

            I notice that you write quite well, with a good conversational flow (sure, you would need to get out of the habit of using lower case 'i' when it should be 'I'). If you can do that, you could easily achieve your target of $100 a month by writing content for others. That could include articles for web sites, blogs or article directories or product reviews.

            Provided you turn out good stuff in a reasonable timeframe, you could build a good reputation, right here on Warriors, becoming the 'go to guy' for content.

            I suggest writing content because it requires nothing more than basic writing skills.

            A $40 post in the WSO forum should be enough to get you your first orders. In fact you might not even need that, if you keep an eye on the 'Wanted-members-looking-hire-you' section of Warriors, because there are always folks there looking to get articles written (which confirms the strong demand).

            All you need to start would be a few sample articles. Offer the first articles at rock bottom prices and then raise your prices as your expertise and good customer feedback grows.

            And just think what you avoid ...

            * Keyword research. NO NEED.

            * Website and blog creation. NO NEED until you're making money.

            * SEO voodoo. NO NEED.

            * Getting onto the first page of Google. No NEED.

            * Betting the farm on pay per click. NO NEED.

            ... and all you do need is in this post:

            * A market with strong, constant demand and ready to pay up-front (no bad payers).

            * A place where you can contact your prospective customers for free or very little.

            Of course, depending on your skill levels, you could branch out to creating other forms of content later, such as videos. Nowadays everything you need is either free or at rock bottom cost. And you can buy what little you need out of your article profits.

            All you need now is 'The Secret Of Success' from Bill Gates - at one time the world's richest man.

            That's in two parts:

            (1) Get started.

            (2) Stick at it.

            Warmest regards,

            Paul

              Paul, there was another group that made out like bandits during the gold rush days. They did mine for gold, but not with picks and shovels.

              They mined for gold by selling the miners things that made life easier and more pleasant, like hot meals, laundry service, fresh produce, and 'adult' entertainment like booze, gambling and...

              Therein lies the seed of another opportunity, Lee.

              If you can provide a service that makes life easier for another business, like maybe posting articles and videos, or bookmarking web pages, or doing keyword research, or any of the other things that are both boring and necessary, you can easily make that $100 a month or more.

              Once you have enough cash flow coming in that the urgency wanes, you can open yourself up to more long-term and/or lucrative opportunities.

              In the meantime, quit buying treasure maps - those 'make money quick and easy' schemes that have let you down so far.

    Ive spent the guts of £200 on different quick money making systems....
    Well, therein lies the problem - there is no way to really make quick money. So, what you probably did was try the system for a bit and then when quick money didn't come you abandoned it and jumped on another system.

    It takes time and work to make money online. Lots of work. Probably many of the systems you bought will make you money but you have to apply them consistently in order for the money to come in. The good thing is that over time that momentum builds and you start making more and more money on the same amount of effort.

    So, from one Lee to another, I suggest that you change your mindset a bit and stop thinking about making quick money and start thinking about building a business pick a path and stick with it until the money starts to flow. Of course, be flexible to change if you see that some efforts are paying off more than others but focus on the one business until it is making as much as you want before you move on to another.

    Hi Lee

    I empathise with you as I and many other have been in this position at some time in the past. Problem is so many guru's ( who aren't guru's incidentally ) convince us it's easy because they want us to buy their products, as no doubt you have found out.

    IM isn't easy until you have spent the time learning some new and valuable skills that work. It is possible to make money overnight.. but not until you have learned some skills and established yourself, earned a reputation for being helpful and of course, found some good honest products to recommend to people. (assuming you are going down the affiliate route) or alternatively learned how to put a good product of your own together.

    You don't have to have been around for years. Everyone has had to start somewhere. If you find a good product that has genuinely helped you and you know it works then there is no reason why you can start recommending it to others. Just be honest. People would rather deal with an honest newbie than an established con artisit !

    My advise would be to find someone honest and with integrity to take you back to basics and teach you some essential skills. Then decide on one path and one method and stick to it until it works, which it will if you remain positive and don't expect instant results.

    I highly recommend a guy called Chris Farrell. I learned everything and still am learning from this man. You have to be a member of his membership site but you get 7 days for a very discounted price and that will give you time to have a look at everything he has to offer before you commit. In fact he has numerous training videos that are available to non-members too.

    I am an affiliate becaue I totally believe in his mentoring but obviously I'm not gona ask you to go through my link or message me for it.

    Just Google him and take a look at his site. He has helped many people and I'm sure he will be able to help get you in the right frame of mind and get you moving forward.

    Good luck

    Regards

    Why make such a huge thing out of something as insignificant as money?
    It's all a perspective, my friend. It is how you are viewing it that makes it difficult. Concentrate on the knowledge. You want something without paying your dues and that isn't realistic. If you want to be able to make money online quickly, on a whim, you must be knowledgeable and have a bit of online street smarts. Then the product will not matter near as much.

    People are not stupid, but they are emotional and impulsive. Solve a problem and sincerely offer it to them with great customer support, along with putting some thought into your salesmanship, then you will make some money.

    Lock yourself in the house and learn. Read about small business and marketing. Not SEO and Wordpress.
    Realize that there is psychology to the sale. And there are different psychologies for different "target markets". A 21 year old man does not act the same as a 50 year old woman, Learn the psychologies of your target market. Then develop "your methods" from your knowledge. Where do you find your target market? Do they hang out at parenting forums, magazines, etc...? This goes for local as well as online. Hit the bingo halls to get to know bingo players if you offer online bingo. Friends and friends of friends can be great customers also. Your time spent in this manner will be much more rewarding than the $3+ you have managed.

    Make a plan packed full of "research", knowing your customer and your competition as best as you can. You'd be amazed at what you can find out about the both of them. Then "target" your plan, presenting your product knowing exactly what it takes to trigger your target's buy switch.

    There is one other thing; Most that are really making money at this are not going to give you details. They may give methods and hints, but teaching the competition is slightly counterproductive.

    The best of luck to you.

      Amen, this is the most important skill a marketer can have and yet it seems to be the area where most people struggle. I think Ken was spot on when he said to take your focus off of the money. Admittedly a bit difficult to do when things are financially tight, but the more you obsess over the money, the less focused you are going to be on your customer's needs and wants. This can cause you to take shortcuts where you might become a snake oil salesman. The bottom line is, you're going to be working your butt off without any tangible results for a while. This is where most get discouraged because they are working hard and it seems they're doing it for free. Think of IM as an investment in the future. The more you do it, the more you'll learn and the more you learn, the better you'll get at it.

      The best advice anyone can give you is to keep plugging away and keep learning.

      Good Luck,
      Mary

    ok, now go back to what you did... and make an assessment:

    what did you learn about yourself? what are your skills, strengths and weaknesses?

    what did you learn about the market and the methods you used? what doesn´t work? Why?

    what among the things you have can be improved?

    do you really want to do marketing?

    as you see most recommended you to move to service, I have been in the service business for 8 years, and only now I´m moving out of it.

    it took me all this time to get to put together all the pieces of the personal puzzle, which boils down to choose the right markets for you, the products to sell to that market you feel comfortable selling, and the right marketing strategies that work for your mindset.

    you see? many people have no issues selling lies, but some do... there is no rights or wrongs as I see them, just choices and the laws of nature at work. The better you know yourself, the more efficient choices you will make, and the faster you go ahead. Makes sense?

      You do need a lot of patience for sure. Buying every new thing that comes out will only serve to distract you. Find a system that works for you and then scale up, and as someone else said, close your wallet.

    Hi Lee,
    I haven't personally used the best spinner but i am generally sceptical of the quality of the articles these programmes can actually create. So i would use caution. With any of these sites offering seemingly fantastic things try googling problems/flaws/reviews/scams/viruses and carefully research before buying anything

    Well - stop buying systems first of all.

    Learn how a sales funnel works, how to create a great give-away to get people into the sales funnwl.

    Build relationships with those leads while CREATING YOUR OWN PRODUCT..

    Once the product is done market to those leads.

    Create a buyers list.

    Create more products

    Rinse and repeat.

    The surest way to make money. No budget required other than domain, hosting and autoresponder. Essential tools anyway.

      Great info here. Making and selling your own product could bring in relatively fast results, especially compared to SEO.

      I'm learning how important is to not just know my target market but also to secure a way reach them.

    I make a little over $100 month with Adsense and Amazon Review websites. What Cavalier Warrior said pretty much sums it up for me. But the most important lesson before you even consider building a website is to learn how to do keyword research. Without it, you'll just end up spinning your wheels and not getting anywhere.

    I agree, following the advice from Cavalier is a good start. No need to spend a lot of money, you will learn later what is worth spending money for.
