    Why can he only work longer if he starts making money. He probably needs to work more before he starts earning.

    A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

      The best way to start as a newbie is to set up a squeeze page and start building a list. A list is any businesses #1 asset.

          Yes, subscribers in your targeted niche that are on your mailing list that you can then mail to over and over again.

    With two hours a day and $50 I would say list building. Don't let him know about WSOs haha or he'll just get bogged down with information. There are good posts around on list building.

    People over complicate list building if he set up his auto responder and sales funnel gave away some PLR and spent the rest of the money on a solo ad or traffic, he should start to make money if done right.

    He should then re-invest some of his profit in more tracking, once he starts making money he should try and rank his niche site for some good keywords.

    'The money's in the List'

    Hope this helps

      I totally agree with this.. WSOs would just entice him to buy and buy and buy... and then his $50 will be gone in the blink of an eye. Plus, he will also experience information overload, which is very hard to break through.

    First off why can he only allow 2 hours a day until he starts making money and why will this change when he does?

    I also notice you offer web design and seo services?

    Surely with these type of skills you could help him make money online by helping him build and rank a site?

    He could then pay you back as he earns.

    As for making something work with only $50 then if you build him a site in a popular niche, help him rank it and also produce some content around the web optimised to generate traffic and send back to his site, then if he promotes good products as an affiliate with decent commissions that are relevant then he is likely to generate some sales.

    Once he does see if he can get an interview with the product producer and also maybe a run through of the product made into a video and put on his site, this should bring in some better conversions.

    I would of use the $50 to send traffic to the site, start with a small daily budget and try tweaking until you see results.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but $50 and 14 hours/week isn't going to start a business. I would say that the MINIMUM investment would be domain name, hosting package, and aweber membership.

    He could always build a facebook page, twitter acct, etc., but even those are going to require time and money to build to a level that generates income.

    Take that $50 and get a very good resume.

    Find him another job. Then help him set up an online business.

    IM is the worst to start in when you need an income with no experience.

    Money will blind you from making money.

      This is the best advice I've seen here so far.

      I really don't like his odds of hitting a home run with no previous experience, $50 and 2 hours. It could be done but the odds aren't so hot.

      Totally agree...if you desperately need money I/M is not your answer...it takes hours of hard work and dedication before you even start to see income...

    Does your brother have any marketable skills?? If so go to cregslist and see if he can earn money teaching something he already knows. Making passive money is really hard and takes a lot of time to build - focus on ur current skills and leverage those then move on to building income through investments.

    First thing he should assess is.. what does he want to sell or do on the internet. Does he want to offer a service? What are his strengths? What are his interests?

    For training, he can start with Clickbank. Have him go through the marketplace and look at all the opportunities available. Ask him which website he feels confident in and that he has knowledge of.

    I personally have not made money with clickbank but I think its a good place to get him acclimated in the marketing world. From there on he can learn how to write ads and post them on various free classified ad sites.

    The best way to teach someone is to have them learn everything on their own through trail and error.

    The best approach would be to find someone who is willing to mentor him for free and offer free training and guidance, teach him the whole "find niche, find traffic, squeeze page, list etc" then when has learnt the necessary skills, he'll be investing his $50 wisely.

    As I'm sure others here have mentioned there's no easy way to make money online it all takes work. The trick is to find something that you're interested in and then it doesn't feel so much like work.

    Not the advise I'm sure you or your brother want but it's the truth.

    Does he have any skills that he could offer? Try craigslist or fiverr. If he needs money fast he can sell stuff too.

    Have him start off in affiliate marketing. Tell him to get a site related to the kind of products that he wants to sell. Educate him on email marketing, and the general premise of driving people back to the affiliate product - via the email link.

    The best way for a newbie to start is with a coach.

    With only 2hours a day to dedicate to IM, it doesn't really sound like he's all that interested or dedicated.

    If he wants to make money online, he'll either:

    1) Take you on as his coach (this is obviously very risky and not recommended as it sounds he needs an income asap)

    2) Find a job, and then learn IM on the side until he doesn't need the job

    Write articles, add value, create content, get free traffic and use opt-in pages, videos that convert, and use a sales funnel that converts. You want to use a system that has proven itself.

    If he wants to make money online immediately have him offer his skills on Elance or Odesk or Fiverr or any other similar service. He can sell affiliate products but needs a list to do this.

    Long term have him create a blog and get an optin box so he can start creating a list. Everyone needs a list - it does not matter what niche you are in.

    He could start by finding a decent PLR product and promote it through somewhere like Clickbank. many people do and they can make good money (not necessarily stacks of cash) but hey, you have to start somewhere.
    Worth thinking about.
    I hope that's a thought for you.

      I would say to anyone who wants to do anything in this business, to just run through a complete course. There are complete courses on this forum, for free in the War Room, or some great ones as WSOs, Newbie to Millionaire covers just about everything you need to know. People like Chris Farrell do a great job in covering the all time favourite basics (product, website creation, domain, optin, hosting and autoresponder) step by step and then updating with the latest stuff. It's just so important to know what it all means and then all the terminology becomes meaningful and then God forbid, you can actually tinker outside the box (no disrespect to the Irish)

    That is such a small budget to get started. I agree with most on here that 2 hours a day is not enough time to get a business up and running. He could always start with squidoo lenses selling in micro niche markets. I have some old squidoo lenses that I put up 4 years ago in about a week and they are still making sales.

    Hello everybody,

    I read all the answers here. Most of the suggestions and ideas are great.
    But I think making money online is not an easy task as it seems to be.

    Do not tempt watch any ad on internet, such as make $100 per day, or get rich overnight. I am not saying that you can't make money like that, but most of these ads are scam, and newbies are their target, because they fall easely into their trap .

    So beware. First learn how to make money online, what are the different ways from which you can make money. Then try to do anything. But every-time and before you decide to purchase a product or service do prior searches about it and its owner.

    And one of the best websites where we can learn and get help is this forum. Warriorforum is a goldmine of free and valued information.

    Good luck.

    Whatever way he learns how to make money online tell him to build his list. I find the easiest way to start is with squeeze pages.

    Find a profitable niche, offer a free product in exchange for their name and email address, then promote products to people that sign up to your list - while at the same time giving them free high valued information.

    I personally recommend building your very own Squidoo lens empire. I not only recommend this to newbies, I also recommend it to seasoned Internet Marketers.

    I'm currently doing very well with Squidoo myself. Lenses rank very easily if you build good ones. They take time to get traffic, but once they do...

    For newbies, Squidoo is a good way of building some income manually.

    Experienced marketers with disposable income can also use Squidoo to make more money.

    You can do this by reinvesting your revenue in outsourced writers and scaling up your Squidoo lens count!

    You should elaborate about your brother's skills, can he write article, can he operate simple office application. Does he wants a passive income which is relatively small income for newbie or he wants something big. When he prefer passive income, you should give your brother some eBook about Clickbank. Affiliate marketing is a good start for any newbie. It is simple and promising, but the competition is quite rough there.
    And one last thing, I have advice for your brother: never give up, keep trying and focus on one thing before trying another one.
    Seize the day!

      The fastest way to make money for a newbie is to offer a service such as article writing, logo design, etc - basically whatever fits his skill set.

      It isn't passive income, and obviously, trading your time for money isn't the long term goal that most people are after. However there is no better way to get started if you need to make money fast.

      Best of luck to him.

        The only legit way to make money online is to do any business. For example, You can get the reseller account from Go Resellers.com. and start earning by selling domain names, hosting plans, SSL certificates etc. This is one of the safe and secure online business. You can do this business from your home itself. You don't need to spend more time for this business. Just bring the customer for your reselling business. They are providing very good customer service and support.
