Myself, I started making money a while ago. It was kind of touch and go. I first made money from an EZA article targeting a "product name review" keyword for a popular IM product. I can't remember how long it took to make money though.
My first "big money" came from an offline client, who paid $1,000 to get 1k facebook fans, which turned out to be a nightmare. Shortly after we got started, FB changed their rules for getting fans, which slowed down the process, A LOT. On top of that the person I hired wasn't a good communicator, and the fans they sent were garbage. But we got there in the end. Wasn't worth the stress though.
For my current project, I'm selling a short fantasy fiction story for $0.99 on the kindle. It's been out a few days, and it's made 5 sales so far, so nothing to brag about. It'll likely take months before it yields any serious results.
So, what about you?
