You have 3 months to make it...

Let's say you have about 3 months to make it with any type of "make money online" venture and if you don't make it, you'll have to find a job. When I say make it, I mean at least minimum wage income. That being said, what would you try to succeed?

    Can anbody explain me how to get online minimum wage in three months? I think this is not possible, so i would keep looking after regular jobs and start to working online and keep things growing slowly.

    Real life scenario for me. I was a stay at home dad but I don't believe we (men) are blessed with the required patience for a long term gig doing this (maybe just me). I had about that long to make enough every month to at least cover day care or I had to get a job. Anyways...

    I planned and executed a couple clickbank review sites and seo'ed them for long term coverage and did Fiverr backlinks and YouTube views gigs to stay afloat short term. 3 months is enough time for SEO based solutions but shorter than that with no cash to invest I would recommend Fiverr. Do something like a hand out 50 flyers gig .

      yes also alot of testing and list building will help you win this game.

      Doing that in our business increased profits by 500% very quickly.

      I sometimes tell my friends I am not a marketers but a tester of things. LOL. Gets some funny reactions.

        Get the right mindset, and things will start to fall into place.

        Write down exactly what you want (Be very specific) Once you have a good idea of what you want and where you want to be, create a mental picture of that situation. Concentrate on that mental picture, feel the emotions as if it is already happened.

        Now that you have that mental picture, bring it to your mind whenever you get to work on reaching your goals. Feel the joy and gratitude while you are working, picture yourself already there. The key to reaching your goals is making the connection between focused thought and deliberate action.

        I know this isn't a practical step by step guide to making money online, but having the right mindset is just as important as knowing what path to take, especially when your not sure which path to take.

          I didn't have three months. I had less than a month of maternity leave left. And by the end of it, I had a writer's website, 20 clients, and more writing work than I could handle. I was making far more than minimum wage.

          It can be done. In this game, it seems, you have to start by providing a service - if you can't write, research for IMers. Do their dirty work. Backlink. Do competitive analysis. If you can market YOURSELF as a product and actually get business - you can then market ANYTHING.

          It's been 5 months now, and I'm still writing full-time, but I have also begun the (tedious) process of learning keyword research and SEO, I have a couple of good sites going, and I'm looking toward shifting to PLR and IM exclusively before the end of the year.

          One thing leads to another. I have to say, writing for IMers has taught me more about the industry than I ever dreamed. And now the "make money online" path seems to be unfolding in front of me, leading me down it... Like the pieces are falling into place. It's surreal.

          But it seems like people want to jump in with "get rick quick" methods and make money, then they get discouraged and give up before they even get their feet wet. It simply doesn't work like that. Sucks to hear, but it's true.

    Simple. Start a membership site. Get 150 members paying $10 a month. Sell one or two things a month to your list to make up for your short fall.

    Just like any other business in the world. You need to have something to offer people in exchange for their money. I would start with a day of determining my strengths and what I can do better than anyone else, and then take it from there. Lay a good foundation, and your progress during those three months will be faster and lead you where you want to go.

    I know this is not the typical "make money online" answer, but looking at it like anything other than a business gives people (myself included) a false expectation. I still get hung up with this :/ hope that helped!

    I'd start a membership site.

    In fact, this is more or less my situation currently. I need to make more money or I'm in trouble.

    Hence I'm back in business full force

      I know what you mean. I can find a decent paying job tomorrow, but once I don't want to be 65 and still working. Why work 8 hours for someone else when I can do it for myself?

        Just focus on one thing and don't give up till you suceed.

        Start selling a service for whatever you're good to do online (article writting,web development,SEO and backlinks etc.)

        Once you get a lot of customers you can even outsource !

    Spend a few 16 hour a days learning how to use wordpress. Then spend another few 16 hour days analyzing flippa and how people sell brand new sites. Then start selling your own brand new sites and cashing out. When you're ready to take it to the next level, spend a couple weeks worth of 16 hour days learning SEO the right way. Then build niche sites and start flipping those.

    That's a guaranteed method right there. The question now is do you have the drive to spend those 16 hour days researching?

      Thanks my friend. I actually do have the drive, but at the end of the day, I sure hope my hourly salary is at min. wage level.

    I was in the same situation. Stay Focused, Work like crazy doing reasearch on a niche or 1 or 2 ideas. Don't scatter yourself around. It helps. I know. Just make sure the product or service or site isn't incredibly saturated and do things right the first time round, you don't want to have to re do something.

    I wouldn't really recommend getting into website flipping. I'm a graphic and web designer by day and even I find it exhausting. Learning/creating/selling/managing is just one big headache.

    You need a coach or a mentor and do a course. I'd recommend one of the trusted guys in the WSO section

    you could do a one of the following and i advice you to focus:

    1. bulid original highly focused content websites and cash in on adsense.
    2. build PPC campaigns on google\bing\facebook\yahoo and cash in on product commissions.
    3. build affiliation wordpress review\story\how to sites and cash in on commissions.
    4. design a product of your own and get other affiliates to promote it for you.

    every option is profitable but it takes time to learn how to implement it

      Thanks halo. The ways to make money are virtually unlimited. I've tried PPC before, but it hasn't worked well. What's the best way to learn PPC?

    Okay - I have to ask...are you asking about yourself? I just went to your website and saw that every post on the 1st page was about how to make money online quickly. If you aren't doing it now, how can you teach others to?

    Why don't you instead teach what you know...what have you learned from your experiences with IM. There are many people just like you that need validation...they want to hear the real things about IM and they it need it to sound sincere.

    And you would probably do better to not have such a hyped up site with a pic. of a sports car with a handsome lookin' guy who probably isn't you.

    Keep it real...I think you'll do better that way.

    Definitely start with a service, something you have skill in doing and enough interest- don't write articles if you hate to write! I would concentrate getting an income this way first, and then take a little bit of time to explore which of the various avenues for an online business, you would like to pursue. Experiment some, but then pick one, and take the time to build it out.

    My personal experience, is that I am currently unemployed(got laid off) but I have been getting my money through flipping websites on Flippa. There is money to be made doing this, yeah it can take a lot of work and sometimes I have to stay up all day trying to work on one site, but WordPress makes it much easier.

    If you have the motivation and time, then you should try building and selling, of course simple websites can sell for hundreds if you know how to list and have buyers for that niche. If you have $27 dollars to invest, then Flippa is the way to go(in my opinion).

    If you have a skill that can be turned into a service, you've got a real advantage. It's a long process when you want to make your living basically as an online publisher. When you do start making money, even if it's less than minimum wage, you get some momentum which makes it easier to succeed in anything.

    Persistance. No matter what you try, always persist and never give up. It's only too easy to say 'this won't work' and just give up.

    Use what other Warriors are posting here, go read other posts and then give something a go. If you don't try, you'll never succeed.

    I guess everyone here has contributed their own opinion. So, I just wanted to let you know that whatever it is that you will choose - it will still boil down to how much effort you have exerted. In just 3 months, it's really not a guarantee. Some even took them a year to see results.

    Just be ready for whatever the outcome will be

    I wouldn't put the pressure on myself like this. Why don't you get a "normal job" and then work on your online business on the side.

    If you stay focused and have a clear goal there is no reason why you can't go full-time within a year.
