The little train that could

16 replies
Ok I need to make some money. Your probably thinking here we go again.
NO! I need a method that will guarantee money. I dont mean adsense and all that stuff. I can literally work for 10 hours straight. Ive already tried article writing and fivver, but no luck. I need a method that requires me to work continuously which will yield payments.

    Hi Jakeskater,

    It's got to be building a list and then working to get traffic to the squeeze page, whether you write articles, post videos on YouTube, run an affiliate program where affiliates get a commission on a sale made after they signup etc.

    Doesn't matter what niche it is - give them something worth signing up for, and you'll get optins. Keep giving your subscribers valuable information and develop a relationship with them, and they'll be loyal to you.

    Cheers for now.

      There are many other ways to make money. Building a list is not everything. Although, if done right, it is a very nice way of making money online.

      In anything online, if you don't receive traffic, you don't get any business. It is not just email marketing. However, email marketing (can and should) require a much more detailed plan of action in order to be successful.

      If you are interested in a stable income stream, providing a service right here on the Warrior Forum can be your answer. Once you are setup here, you can then branch off and offer your service to people all over the web. There are plenty of people making good money by providing a service, that is in demand, right here on WF.

      If you've got 10 hours a day to spend, it would seem pretty much of a certainty to me - if you don't want to write yourself and you've got cash to spare then go to Fiverr - they'll write your articles for you. If you've got more cash to spare and you fancy taking a risk then try PPC.

      Sorry jakeskater, nothing in life is a certainty except death and taxes - you get out what you put in - most people would give their right arm to have 10 hours a day to spend on internet marketing.

      Cheers for now.

        Ok so hypothetically, lets say I go with your method (I can write articles) and I do the affilate marketing/adsense mumbo jumbo. What would I spend all of that time doing I also know how to make websites and handle wordpress and stuff. But from what i've seen, you just set up a site and hope for traffic, which, I would not like to do.

          Hi Jakeskater,

          But you're not just hoping for traffic - you're doing something to encourage it. We've all put up websites and hoped for traffic, but if you've got time to spend to actively get traffic to it, then you will get traffic to it, by being active and not passive.

          In the words of a famous ad - just do it!

    You are asking to be dripfed jobs to fill your 10 hours.

    This won't happen unless you put in the effort to acquire a constant stream of micro jobs (less likely) or you draw contract with someone (more likely).

    Even some of the most successful of entrepreneurs aren't working jobs back to back. They spend their time sourcing those jobs too, staggering hunting with working whilst others might be more "fortunate" to have jobs flow in due only to the fact they put in a significant amount of effort into their marketing.

    With regards to squeeze pages, you don't "hope" for traffic. You act to make traffic happen and you plug away with all the hours you have to make it so, or you use your hours to manage other people to do it for you.

    Why do people have this preconceived idea that making money on the internet is quick and easy to do?

    Actually, I know why but still...

    Look, there is methods to make money within a few days but the irony of it is, it takes years to master.

    If you want fast cash, then get a job, then in your spare time, work on making money on the internet.

    There are not methods. You just have to stick with one thing long enough until it makes you money.

    You say you tried articles, how many did you write and for how long?

    Let me explain what I am trying to say. Yes I understand that it takes time, I have already made money on the internet selling websites and products on ebay. I have also made some money with surveys, although not as much. What I am asking is for a newer method, that is more secure. I would like to write articles, I COULD WRITE ARTICLES ALL DAY, but as I said I have tried. I cant find any place that needs articles and the rate that I offer them. I am essentially asking for a new method that hasnt really be focued on because of the amount of time needed, which is something I have.

    OK Jake. There is a big difference between being an employee and being your own boss.
    If you have a job and work 10 hours, you get paid for those 10 hours.
    If you run your own business, there are NO GUARANTEES. I have to repeat this for you. NO GUARANTEES.
    You
    decide what you want to do, build up a business and eventually you can make some decent money.
    If you think there's a single person in here who will give you a magic key that guarantees you money and work for 10 hours a day, then I can only guess that you have started drinking the New Year's Eve champagne too early.

    Please don't take offence but all the people here have tried to tell you the same thing.
    If any of us had that magic key, don't you think we would be using it ourselves?

    Enough said.

    SURELY your best avenue would be to get a job. think about it - you don't want anything that requires time investment/dedication, you can't even make fiverr work for you, and you want guaranteed money... this all point toward getting a job. preferably one where you can do 10 hour shifts, so... McDonalds?

    I think I completely understand, you want some return right now. Not opt in wait time or anything like that. If you can pm me your details, I have pdf for my website I give to people. I know I dont have a signature here yet but don't want people to think Im just promoting my website to help them. Besides that my membership website is totally free with no way to upgrade, its my gift back for the gurus helping me get started. Anyways pm me and I have about 2 dozen ways to make money.

    I would like to say one thing though ok two things, both the ways you tried you can make money from and you can make money fast. You just need to know what to offer and how to market it. Where to find aritcles to write and who to sell too. What products you need to put on fiverr and maybe a new trick or two with it.

    Same as stuff like ebay. Ebay gets a bad rap. I had a forum and had a guy that would just bad mouth ebay. I bet him a hundred I could make money on ebay with a physical product and show a profit the first day to the end of the month. He took me up on it. I went to the .99 cent store and bought 100 dollars worth of merchandise. All kinds of things. Clearance items from supermarkets, baby clothes, car wash wipes, earphones. you name it. Now I put a store up and asked .01 cent starting bid on each item. People bid and bid on most of it. Now I sold almost all my product in less than 14 days for a dollar total lol.

    Now I said I made a profit right. I did my average shipping and handling fee was 2.99, Average cost to mail something was .89 cents, now you do the math.

    Don't beat the tree till you climb it. Thats a personal motto I use everyday. The grass is always greener on the other side, but you still have brown spots so watch your step.

    The problem with your question is that you aren't going to like the honest answer. There are no GUARANTEED ways to make money online. There are many ways that a lot of us do make money online, but none of them are guaranteed.

    There are no SECRET methods that we're hiding from people that are GUARANTEED to make money online. You can go into the WSO forum and there are some there that will tell you that their secret method is GUARANTEED to make money ... and a lot of it. But it's a lie. Stay away from products with income claims. You'll only lose money and be disappointed.

    Now you need to make the plan yourself. There are hundreds of ways to make money online. After reading the forum, decide which business model suits you best and put your all into it. Buy only products and services that will help you reach your goals with the business model you choose. It won't be fast and it won't be easy and it is not guaranteed, but it is the path to success if you are committed to building an online business.
