    Hi Rick,

    What are your skills? A good place to start is working out what you're good at. Can you write compelling articles? Can you design logos? Build websites? Offering these services on a freelancing site is a great way to start earning some cash and getting your head round how the internet business works. Of course, you'll be trading time for money, which is what many internet marketers want to avoid in favour of a passive income, but it's where I started and it taught me so much.

    Find one approach and stick to it rather than jumping from one thing to another.

    go to fiverr.com and see how other people are earning money.

    If like everyone else has mentioned before have a certain skill you can work for other people on Odesk.

    If on the other hand you want to making money via marketing then i suggest you spend the next week reading every post on this forum if you do that you will find something that interests you and then pursue it.

    Hey Rick,

    I'm afraid that everyone's answers will most likely give you the same result you ended up with. What's more important is what route you want to go down and if you have any skills, is it something you'd like to incorporate throughout your Internet Marketing business model?

    I could always suggest what I think is best for a newbie but my answer will be different just like nearly every other person that will post here.

    But seeing as you've already been looking into this, is there anything that you'd like to give a go and start moving forward with?

        No, not necessarily. You don't "need" Internet skills to be good at IM.

        Can you write well? Make videos? What are your interests?

        Can you teach somebody something? It doesn't have to be IM, it can be about ANYTHING.

    It's the same question I wanna ask. But now I realize that it's more about our passion than skill. Skill is just supporting us. If you have a writting skill, designing skill, etc. It can help you to save the cost. IM is like ordinary commonly business. It's about how we think smart and look the opportunity.

    It is Good to find something you are passionate about - but you also want to make sure it is profitable.

    Many many people make the common mistake of picking something they are passionate about say watching movies, playing video games, cars etc etc - but end up making no money.

    You want to find a market and niche where people are spending money, and if you are passionate about that subject matter - it will help too.

    Some good examples are...
    Dating
    Building Muscle for skinny men
    Cake decorating
    how to become a pilot

  • Rick,

    The best thing I can tell you is stick with something, be VERY persistent. Whatever method you start with, give it 2-3 months, if you don't even see $1 from it then it's a dud and move on. But the key is persistence - so many shiny objects out there that can distract you. Wish you the best my friend, if you need anything let me know.

    P.S.

    Forgot to mention - TAKE ACTION! :-)

    You've gotten some good advice here - it is about finding what you are passionate about, and either using your talent/knowledge in that area or learning more about it. Match up your passion with a profitable niche and focus on one thing at a time. Skills can be learned, so don't be put off by any technical hurdles.

    Don't be fooled by people trying to get to you buy tons of products to make money - this is a simple process, easy to learn, so find a mentor you can trust and get the knowledge - buying tools is worthless until you know how to use them!

      Hi there!

      There are major paths to your goal!
      1. Affiliate Marketing --> You promote other people's products for commission.
      2. List Building --> You build a list of prospects who are interested in a product or a service
      3. Product Creation and Launcing --> You create a product or a service to generate income

      You may need to think about what you are passionate about. Then decide what niche you like to get into. Health, Wealth and Relationships are good markets and you find a niche relates any of those.

      There will be a learning curve if you are fairly new and be aware of that.

      Have the focus and maitain the focus. It may take short time or long time to see first sale you make online depending on many factors. Like I mentioned above your focus and your commitment, whether you take actions daily basis to reach you goal.

      First set your goal(s), sketch you a plan, take actions and maintain your focus. You can reach your goal(s) faster.

      I disagree, the whole you need a mentor thing isn't necessary. A lot of the basics on how to do things and how to get started are found on this very forum.

      My advice to you original poster is... grab some coffee and start reading, start searching, learning, and then read some more. Ask questions, inquire, learn and do it again and again. Plan, but remember to take action. Doing something is far better than always doing nothing.

      I'm with Nadal on this.

      There's so many options and opportunities its easy to get overwhelmed. A mentor is the quickest route to success and following a proven track record.

      Many people avoid this method for some years then wonder why they still aren't making any money.

      Good luck

    You will get some fine pieces of advice here, but you have to take your time and read carefully the threads.
    But first, take a good look at your abilities and skills. Become aware of what you can and what you can not do. Find your limitations and see how you can overcome them.

    Well, the answer depends on which area do you want to work with. Are you a good content writer? Get paid by submitting articles to different directories or open your own blog site and get paid by putting advertisements. Do you like to sell? Then become an affiliate marketer. Write reviews on hot products and earn commissions.

    focus is the only way to do it. As a newbie, I assume you still need to learn to do several things at once, and that's why you need to start doing 1 thing at the same time, until you make it.
    Buying a proven and good business system (lots of free info shared in WF about this) and follow the path, match a method that fits your resources in time, finance, and effort you wanna put into, also the risk you wanna take.

    fill surveys if you want be useful for giving opinions
    off coarse affiliate marketing, ptc ,,etc
    There is also the hipe investment if you have the money
    Now my advice make a product and drop for affiliate marketing what ever you do best write an ebook and make sure it is perfect you can sell it
    but remember online making money is not easy and one thing leads to another
    just get starting and make variations and you will find your way it is not quick so be patient tere are many scams so be careful

    It depends on your interpretation of the "best". However, from my knowledge (admittedly limited) there are two main ways of approaching your question.

    For most people, the "best" means the fastest and easiest. For them, freelancing is *probably* the answer. You can set up a profile on a content mill (e.g. Text Broker, Constant Content) or bid sites (e.g. Elance, Odesk) within minutes (although it would take closer to an hour to maximize your profile) and then begin applying for jobs. You can being making money literally the same day in some instances by writing freelance articles or doing other freelance work. All it takes is a semi-decent grasp of the English language.

    However, if you're one of those who are looking for a long term and sustainable internet career, then the best thing to do is to leverage your skills on the internet by setting up your own website.

    Basically, what special skills/talents/knowledge do you have? Do you have a degree? Are you black belt karate student? Are you good with computer programming/design?

    After figuring out your skills, you can then begin design/develop a website around your skills. If you like, this can be completely free, although most advise that you should purchase a unique domain and hosting, meaning that you're the owner and not any other party.

    After that, you have one of two options.

    1. You can promote other's products on your website - e.g. affiliate marketing, whereby you get a commission from each sale of someone else's product if they click through your affiliate link.

    OR

    2. You create and promote your own product - e.g. producing a training course, offer consulting, etc. This way you get a larger share of the pie (or all of it) although the onus is on you to create a great product.

    Those are some of the most popular ways to make money online.

    That's my 2 cents at least!


    Cheers,

    Daryl

      Rick, it all depends on what your talents are. One of the quickest to start making money with is writing. You can start writing articles for people today. The best way to start is obviously by investing some money into it, but if you don't have any money to spend, or want to simply work for your money, go into writing or use your skills. There's a warrior for hire thread in these forums as well as other websites such as Textbroker.

    YouTube could be good (videos rank pretty well on Google for many keywords).

    Squidoo.com it's also another free alternative where you can get good traffic.

    Both are good places to get started with something and they are newbie friendly (at least squidoo is).

    Ebay or Fiverr. Or sell $7 ebooks on your own website. Admittedly the last choice requires more steps, and you will have to generate the traffic to your site. But stick with it for a few years, and you will be glad that you put the effort into starting your own site.

    But then again... there's always selling a service. What are you good at?

      I agree with James whatever you decide to do , first do you research like your currently doing. There is always people willing to help you for free , it's rare but they do exist. Don't start spending money when you don't make any money . There is lots of free programs that pay good money. If it works , then spend money investing in something you can see is working and producing profit. Don't give up , Rome wasn't build in one day. All the best

    Take action, Take action, Take action I stole that one but it's very relevant. Get some knowledge so you can decide what you enjoy and what suits your abilities then keep persisting over and over.

    I am a huge action taker but flipped from one to another I have now had help in take consistent action and that is the HUGE difference.

    Oh one last thing........Enjoy it

      If there is someone successful online that you regularly follow and think that you would like to be doing what they are doing then start learning about them and how they got started etc. and go from there.

      One of the hardest things I think about online business or any business is overcoming self-doubt and not falling into the information overload trap, so no matter what you do always have confidence that you can do it and make sure you don't overload with information.
