How To Start The IM Business With A Empty Wallet

41 replies
Hey Guys...

I am just 14 and I am not new to this SEO stuff. Let me tell you something so that you can give your opinions. I am from India where many don't know Internet Marketing.

Well, I am damn interested in IM and my dream is to launch a no-bluff wso before I am 16 :p. Well, As I am from India and added that I am 14.. its hard for me to pay online for domains and other things. I know that only there is cost of domain but its too hard for me to pay.

I had many good friends who I help... and in return they would give me cash or they would help me register domains with their money. But I want to get started without these. I wanted to get started without investment.

My mom and dad doesn't believe what I say about IM as they don't know it. But... once I have a cheque of 10$ or more .

So... Let me break it down for you to understand... I need a method...


  1. That doesn't Require any Investment
  2. Doesn't require a Domain ( I AM GOOD AT SEO AND LOVE DOING IT :p)
  3. That Somebody or at least One Person had success with.

I thought of going with co.cc because I saw it ranking. I need your opinion. If you can personally coach me that would be great and my skype is surajmuralee3033.

Thanks For All Your Support and I Expect Awesome Replies From This Awesome Forum.

    Hi,

    Three quick ideas:

    1. Offer some sort of SEO service on Fiverr.com
    2. Create a free blog and document how you got it to rank for keyword. Then create a WSO based on that.
    3. Offer a SEO service on a shared reward basis. i.e. if I get your site ranked on page 1, within x months, you will give me $X.

    Good luck! Regards Allen

    Hi

    With a co.cc you would still need some hosting (I believe). I personally wouldnt go with free hosting as they normally have a limit on bandwidth.

    If you can not get paid hosting then I would personally recommend something like Blogger or free wordpress. These are fine to start with, although read their terms etc as they do have the right to delete your blogs if they believe you are breaking their terms of service.

      Well... I know some good free hosts so don't have to worry about that. I need your opinion on how co.cc ranks.

        I have seen them rank well.

        If you have good content and good backlinks then the domain name doesnt really matter.

        I think it depends on the niche as some more computer savey people may not trust co.cc domains as much as they are free and could potentially be used for spamming purposes.

        Free hosts limit access and the things you can do. Just get a paid domain for a few dollars and the benefits are way more.

        Good.

        If I were you, I wouldn't be put off at all by some of the very generalised comments above about free hosting.

        I don't know if byethost.com is one of the ones you already know about, but if it isn't, I'd give it a good look. It's highly professional, well-established, reliable free hosting and unlike some free hosts, they don't put their own advertising button on your sites (which looks a bit unprofessional). There's no reason for you to have great problems using free hosting as long as you choose wisely and carefully.

        It can rank well. Mostly it depends on the backlinks, and so on, of course. However, my own belief is that overall you may have significantly better chances with a .info domain. Those are only $1 at GoDaddy. Possibly you can persuade somebody to buy you one? Hard to know with certainty, of course, but it might just be better for you (and certainly won't be worse), and it would be a shame to miss a trick for $1, no?

          It's good that you're gathering information and asking for opinions early on. Better to start early. Unfortunately all I can really do for you is point you to a few sites that allow you to create webpages for free (and later upgrade to a full domain if you're site is getting traffic).

          Weebly
          Triond

          both also allow you to add google adsense into the site, but they are drag and drop site creators (so not the best in the world if you're good at html or CSS).

          Sorry that I can't be of much help as I'm just getting my bearings at 19.

      Hi Suraj!

      I started using the Internet when I was around 10. But thought about money only after I turned 18. Now, I earned around 1 lakh rupees on Cramster.com answering questions on Physics, Chemistry, Maths etc. Then I went to IIT Kharagpur and did some freelancing work on Freelancer.com, like writing articles, making websites, building links etc. I was able to earn around $1000 in 6 months.

      Now, I did all this without a domain name, without spending 1 paisa on the internet. You just need to find something useful you can sell.

      Let me tell you how I got my current main blog's domain (indihow.com). I did some PTC clicks and got $1 on Incentria.com. Then I wrote a review of Hostgator on some hosting review site based on the 3-4 months of free hosting I'd used on hostgator.com. For that I got $5. Then I bought wpdraft.com for $5.99 and sold it for $12.

      From that I spent $10.99 to get indihow.com.

      My story is pretty lame in a way. Starting off with PTCs.

      But the important thing is that you need to focus on what "you can do" that others can use.

      Then you can earn 100s or even 1000s of dollars a month.

      You can start by building backlinks for others. Try some microjobs on microworkers.com too. I got around $16 in a couple of months.

      Fiverr has no age restriction it seems (which surprised me) - but you have to have a paypal account.

      You are living in a country where internet use is growing rapidly - why not offer your service for site building and/or SEO to those around you as a business for $$$? At 14, you can't pay for services/products online and you can't be paid for work done. The exception is if your parents are willing to back you in opening a paypal account, etc.

      You could launch a local business to help other teens or businesses create web pages and SEO them - and you could do that for cash payment.

    I also started very young at the age of 15 and i would recommend getting your parents to set up a paypal account for you plus buy you a hosting package and domain. At the age of 14 if you build a website until your 18 it's going to be killer and have a lot of respect in the eyes of google.

    if you do however wan't to do it %100 here's what i would do.

    1. ask you parents for a paypal account.
    2. create a twitter, digg and facebook fanpage.
    3. Sign up to a CPA network (if your parents name)
    4. Build a free blog (blogger.com)
    5. Offer service on fiverr; such as "i will submit your link to my..." etc
    6. Build a squidoo lense or two
    7. Get your parents to sign up for a adsense account through squidoo.
    8. Link your blog and squidoo lense together.
    9. Build traffic by building backlinks, posting articles etc
    10. Create youtube videos which link to your CPA offers.
    11. Find relevant CPA offers for your blog and squidoo lense

    12. when you have the money get your parents to buy you your own domain and hosting.

    something like the above any way, btw it is in no particular order.

        suraj, you can try it but not many available offer in your country, unless you stay in US and Europe. An alternative is :

        1) sell your service at fiverr.com (after your parent's registration with paypal)

        2) once you make money, join How to Make Money Online (Warning: Unusual Methods) for 1-time payment of $37.

        3) learn all the nuggets and goldmine of informations inside, share the info with your parents and they will thank you for that.

        4) once you have a product - outsource the marketing...and you'll live a rich kid by 16. no joke. take it by heart.

        my 2 cents.

        What kind of page would you start? I had a blog a while back, got a separate page for it, and I got a bit overwhelmed by all the options. Is it a corporation? Or a brand? Etc. etc.

        One of these days I have to get around to one of the FB WSOs. FB gets so much traffic, it seems almost wrong not to.

        FB ranks higher for my name than my own site does lol.

    free lance is the best way to make some great cash. it's not just about the money it's also about experience. more you do it, better you will be at it. search around forum to get ideas and start putting them in to action. Why don't you start with hubpages because they rank very well. Start doing some reviews on products such as clickbank. get your parents to open a paypal account to receive money for freelance work.

    How To Start The IM Business With A Empty Wallet?

    There are two types of currency in the online marketplace: money and time.

    If you don't have one, you must spend the other.

    When you have no money, you must spend time.

    When you have money, you have the option of spending money to buy other peoples' time to gain more time and/or money for yourself.

    People make this IM thing too hard.

    You must figure out how to offer other people "value" that they are willing to pay for. And you must figure out how to move the money into your accounts, and how to deliver the real value to your customers.

    The hardest part about the opportunity is figuring out what kind of "value" you are capable of giving to others. And then how much to charge for those things you are giving to others.

    You are young. You have a lot of time to figure out the answers to these questions. And if you do figure out the answers, the Internet offers an unprecedented opportunity to any person willing to exchange value for the money.

    Down the road, as you gain more experience, you may just find that you don't always have to exchange time to make more money, but you always have to offer "real value".

    The most thing that I feel when I was reading your content is that you have big passion and you're just 14 age old; this is really so perfect because you have an opened mind and you are so optimistic to make money online.

    Others people give up before ever begin.

    In my opinion: if you want to start business you need not using the free domains and the free hosting; because these could put your whole websites that you have by this way in big risk because these free websites could suspend your accounts and destroy your business online in a dramatic way.

    firstly you need to open PayPal account with your parent name as they mentioned.

    Check these sites:

    www.fiverr.com
    www.guru.com
    www.odesk.com
    www.elance.com
    www.rentacoder.com
    www.freelance.com
    www.scriptlance.com

    These sites will really help you so much.

    I would see if there is a payment system that your government approves for you to collect money.

    From what I understand, PayPal is going to be a problem for you. You can use it, but there are issues you need to be aware of. There are many threads here that talk about that, so search the forum for those answers.

    My understanding of the whole payment thing in India is government regulations, so maybe your government can advise how they would want you to get paid.

    I certainly don't understand all of the facts on this matter, so check with your local Warriors to find those answers. It may turn out that you can only get paid from other people in your country.

    I would go to fiverr and start getting fan base, and when you have regular customers keep bugging them and get more work from them.

    Well I've no idea what you'd call an average job, but salaries vary from around $5000 to $250,000 annually.

    Around $400 a month is good enough to survive with most basic requirements in any city.

    $10 is worth nothing if you want to prove anything

    Yes... All I want is to prove my parents that I can make 10$ at this age and once I get 10$.... I can make it 20$ and I can increase my target as much as i want... well until a certain limit LOL.

    No offense but the tip aint very useful. I know IM won't make me rich overnight. But IM can make me something because I love it. In my honest opinion. If you have passion for something... You can get it... not minding how high it is . BTW... I don't have a plan B... even if I had one... I won't be using the above plan... my plan a is to try till the end because I can smell success and wont give up... and in case I am not successful... I will use Plan B. Which is creating a redirect to Plan A. No offense.

    Suraj.
