    Hi there - there are several ways to make money online and I'm sure you will receive a number of suggestions here. I do affilliate marketing i.e selling other people's products. There's lots of information on the net regarding affilliate marketing, as well as free or paid ebooks to help you get started. I'd advise that you get one of these ebooks so that you do not waste your time surfing the net for information. I am saying this because I got sidetracked a lot trying to find info on the net.

    Hello everyone i am completely new to Internet Marketing. 5 days back i lost my job,

    Sorry to hear you lost your job.

    By going through some of the threads i feel that there is nothing formal training required.

    Take another look around and you'll see how many people are really struggling to make money online. I don't need formal training to walk into a hospital and start cutting people open, but it sure does help.

    But being completely new i have no idea in the field. Please advise me where to begin with !!! Any suggestions ???

    Begin by getting any preconceived notions out of your head that this game is easy to succeed in. The failure rate is into the 90% range in this industry and many people fail to understand this in the beginning.

    Start from the beginning. Educate yourself. Take a look at all the different ways in which you can make money online. Pick one strategy that interests you and follow a proven system to the letter until you get it to work. There's a million ways to make money online, no one here today can help you pick one. You first need to educate yourself.

    Spend a couple of days reading through the forum until something takes your fancy, then research that method more closely and go from there.

    Also i want to know how much i can earn ??

    You can earn between 0 & 100 million a year.

    Do i need to invest something ??

    Not in the beginning because without adequate knowledge on what you're getting into, you'll lose that money quick smart. Educate first - Invest, second.

    If yes then how can i find a right person ??

    Take your pick. There's thousands of people out there that can help you. Some are good and some will just take your money and head for the hills. As I said. Educate yourself first. There's nothing more that can be shared on a forum thread. Take some time to familiarize yourself in the industry before making any decisions.

      No matter how you define it you will require "training" to be successful. You can educate yourself as stated by another member, but it will take longer.

      Please advise me where to begin with !!!
      You're in a good place to start. Read, watch video tutorials, ask questions.

      Also i want to know how much i can earn ??
      Maybe zero, maybe millions. There are no guarantees!

      Do i need to invest something ??
      The short answer is yes. Not a lot is required but you will want at least one website to start.

      If yes then how can i find a right person ??
      That's the 64 million dollar question. Do your research is the best advice I can give.

      Good luck!

    The first thing to do is to figure out a business plan. There are many different online business models, but here are the most common:

    Affiliate Marketing - Selling Other People's Products and earning a commission
    Content Publishing - Writing/Blogging and earning advertising revenue once your site gets traffic
    Selling Your Own Product/Service - This is my favorite/most profitable method. I personally sell digital goods, but you can also sell physical products and/or your own services.

    The key to being successful vs. just spinning your wheels around information overload is to carefully research your niche/topic and its target market. For example, if you want to sell blue widgets, you want to make sure that there are people interested in blue widgets. If you want to write about cats, you need to make sure there are people who will read about cats. You can research your market using sites like Alexa, SemRush, Google's Keyword Tool, etc. etc.

    No matter what business you decide on, you will need a website most likely. So I would suggest with starting to learn how to build a site with WordPress, getting your own domain/hosting/etc. You can learn all of this online for free with some searching.

    Then you need to market your website. There are hundreds of ways to do this, but the most popular are getting ranked in search engines (getting traffic from Google), using social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), building an email list, and networking with other website owners.

    Ask not what Internet Market can do for you - ask what you can do for Internet Marketing.

    First, you want to become a productive member of society (this forum) by reading this:

    Note: when you visit that thread make sure to read the others as well. Now you are on your way to becoming a proper and productive member.

    Start by looking at and treating Internet Marketing as a business. Some of the very best and most successful Internet Marketers are astute business people. Some already had a formal education in business and some did not, but most will agree that if you want an online business it is necessary to learn business.

    Along the way you will learn how to run a business and make an educated business decision about the specific online business that is right for you.

    Also, along the way, you take the time to explore this forum and learn the answers to your questions. In that you may learn from reading and maybe applying your business education.

    Everyone will has his/her own way after some time on learning various aspects of Internet marketing.

    But the essential parts will be : a website with a blog, an auto responder account with a squeeze page, and e-mail series.

    When i was your position i was used to think that ways. First of all you need to figure it out your preffed area according to your skill. As It's a vast area. There are so many ways to earn money. If you have one or two skills then you need to utilize it properly. I think one day success would come to your hand.

    Sorry if I offended you, based on the way you speak you think internet marketing is a get quick rich way. Honestly, its not. Most people here are working hard for very long hours. If you are really very desperate for money you should put in more effort to look for a job. It is not advisable to invest in any program if you are going to depend on your savings alone.

    i am sorry to hear about your loss of your job.

    A few Words of caution.

    I think it is important for you to take a bit of time to figure out what is that you would like to do to make money on the internet.

    There are many ways and a vast amount of free information. It is easy to get lost and IT IS VERY EASY TO LOSE FOCUS.

    If you don't have focus, you will fail.

    Pick one thing you want to master in, and just learn about that. Ignore all other free materials or you will be distracted.

    I would suggest you pick affiliate marketing with the help of list building. Get a list going and market affiliate products to them. Trust me you will be thankful one day that you started off with a list as your #1 task on making money online.

    Its a long road, you have to be ready for it and willing to sacrifice.

    For starters, you can offer your services online while you educate yourself.

    Can you write articles, create logos, etc. If you have a skill, there's a place you can sell it online.

    You can start making money right away on the internet by offering your skills.

    It is important you educate yourself in order to succeed as an internet entrepreneur.

    Good luck
