Would be interested in hearing your stories, or rather, what business you are in (services? selling ebooks? affiliate?) etc.

    I got started in providing services here on the forum.

    IMO it's a great way to start.

    It requires work, but you can start earning very quickly -
    I had my first payment within 24 hours of my thread going
    live. Getting that email from PayPal was a great feeling.

    I've expanded since then (granting PLR to my content as
    well as writing for individual customers) and increased my
    prices. Ive also built an email list of customers, which
    is a huge asset and constitutes about 50% of my income
    through affiliate sales and sales of my own products.

    I hope that helps,

    Joe.

    All three now, actually. The thing is though that what I do has literally nothing to do with what you can/will do. It'll make you feel warm and fuzzy inside (and guaranteed there will be at least one warrior who comes in and says that is a legitimate reason to ask), but in reality you're just wasting time that could be spent learning and working.

      Great post. You make money buy working, and asking questions that will help your move your business forward. Spend time on that and momentum will forever be on your side.

      Joe beat me to it (It's that quirky extra digit on his typing hand)
      These questions are not going to help you make money.
      Do you really think everybody is being honest when they tell you how much they make or don't make?
      The people making good money are not lining up to give away their secrets.

    I got started with article writing for technical blogs (look for "write for us" in your niche).

    Then I made some B2B shareware. That took 6 months to build, but it still sells 10 years later. At $49.95 a go (more for a site license) it's good coin.

    I've got a load of niche AdSense sites. It's getting harder to make these but mine do OK because I write about stuff I own (so have loads of OC for them) or stuff that's incredibly technical and the MMO crowd won't touch.

    Just lately I've been focusing on CPA offers, mainly because the AdSense had to go from a load of my sites.

    I've had plenty of failures - health was a bad niche for me, and I've failed with Wizzley and Squidoo. I've also started a membership site. That's been interesting, but I would not do this if I was a noobie due to the VAST problem with spammers and scammers.

    I am not in the IM field, my online business is in something I am passionate about and which was a hobby. It turned out that I was good at writing, had plenty of knowledge on the field from my years of having it as a hobby and I also enjoy helping others.

    I started seeing the money coming in without really doing it for the money (not much, about $500-$1000 per month) and then I was contacted for an interview on TV (morning program, you know those where it is a bunch of women talking about latest gossip and all that). Had fun with it, took a week off for holiday with my friends and when I got back, I checked my website and it had become a hit (about x100 more visitors). I also checked my account and I had made in that week enough money to pay for the whole holiday I took (went with 4 friends to another country), and take the same holiday again and pay not only mine but all my friends' expenses.

    Since the money has been growing steadily ever since and recently I was benefited from the Penguin and mini-updates, I am making much more money so I am at a point of considering quitting my job as I am working on more stuff online related to my hobby.

    You can do extremely well in any of these 3 areas, and indeed in many other areas which I'm sure you're aware of. The key to success in any of them is not to try to emulate what others have done, but to do what makes sense for you to do considering who you are as an individual.

    Different business models suit different people. If you're a people person then selling services might be a good option. If you're a bona fide expert in a particular field and you can provide real solutions to problems people have in that field then write an eBook.

    Do something where you shine, something which plays to your strengths. As long as you consistently make good decisions, especially with regard to what you do with your time and your money, you'll find all the success you want.

    I'm making 2K a month. I have 9 blogs, I write on them daily. Majority of money comes from adsense, microsoft publisher, and amazon affiliate. I also have 2 youtube channels. It's a lot of work, lots of writing on my own, am experimenting with outsourcing, hoping to relieve the stress. I just launched 2 new blogs.

    Oh and here's the kicker, only 1 of my blogs is on a .net the rest of blogspot and they are not spam blogs in any sense of the word.

    I sell ebooks. I love the idea of getting semi-automatically paid to sleep 20 out of the 24 hours of the day.

    Always wary of people coming in here asking how much others earn. Had the most authentic PayPal phishing attempt I ever saw last week. Anyone here would have sworn it was the actual PayPal site. Not saying the OP is up to no good. Just a word of caution...

      How can your Paypal account be compromised in any way by asking a question akin to the OP?

      What could he possibly do by asking that question?

      Is he asking for your Paypal email/Password?...

      **Confused dot com**
      I think he is referring to setting yourself up as a potential target. Saying "I make $10k per month" is certain to draw some attention, and who knows who is actually reading? Couple that with people who make their email readily available on their profile (and sometimes even use that with PayPal) and all the pieces are in place...

      He is asking who makes over $1K per month dude.

      Is he asking for your Paypal email/Password?...

      **Confused dot com**
      I didn't think I'd have to explain... First, I specifically said I wasn't accusing anyone of anything and that it was just a word of caution. You did see that, right? To the explanation...

      You come to a thread like this bragging about how much you're making. You've got a link in your sig to an offer. Someone says, gee whiz. Maybe I'll buy this guy's stuff and get his PayPal email and handle. A week, maybe two weeks later, you're getting a really good notice from somewhere that looks like it comes from PayPal. Next thing you know you've got a notice from the real PayPal saying your account's been cleaned out. Simple, huh?
