Hello everyone!
I'm new in this forum and to the whole IM thing.
Can you people please tell me a proven method to make my first money online?

Any amount of money is okay for me to start with, i just want to have a few bucks income to reinvest At the moment i don't really have any money to invest in anything so i would be happy if anyone knows a free way.
Thanks!

    You will have to start reading. Making money online isn`t as searching for treasures on deserted islands. You have to learn and work hard to make the money. And be prepaired to invest some of your own money.

      Thank you for the fast answer!

        Your welcome. Another method of quickly making money online is to concentrate on any skills which you have and could possibly sell as a service to others.

          I was already thinking on selling some services on Fiverr to make some money for Website hosting. I'll try it out!
          I think it would be a good way to make some money to be able to get website hosting.

            Yep, give Fiverr a try, get some money together and re-invest in something else. We all have to start somewhere. There are also plenty of other Fiverr type sites out there so why not duplicate you gig across a few of them.

            Not sure what skills you are planning on selling but you could also look at Elance and other outsource sites. Anyway, best of luck.

Thats how I got started after I allready wasted time on useless eBooks.

              Sure you can learn alot from eBooks also but most guides just tell same things over and over again.

              I'm also in few small skype groups who got people with same interests and many got alot experience on internet marketing, I have got alot help there.
              Yeah i think you're right but i think i have no useful skills :/

    Find a mentor. Or else you will just be confused and frustrated by information overload. Then you'll give up and quit IM.

          The best thing you can do for yourself is to decide where you would like to work within IM, most assume that IM is strictly Aff. Marketing but there are many different facets of IM.

          If you're creative start with services: content or book writing, sale page designs, web design, domain or website flipping, etc.
          Better at sales? Take a stab at marketing, your own product creation, etc.
          Want to be your own boss? Think products and ecommerce either through your own store, ebay or craigslist.

          Like I said there are many different routes you can take in IM you just really need to pick one and stick with it. It's very easy as a newbie to get caught up in shiny object syndrome.

          Stay focused and don't give up if success doesn't come to you immediately! Good luck.

            I think that's a bit too much for me at the moment, since i don't know how to do anything of that.
            My plan was to start with a simple low income method and then slowly learning more and more.

    Your best bet then is an authority niche site optimized with different methods of monetization ie adsense, ebay, clickbank, amazon, etc. If you need some more help feel free to PM me and I can get you on your way.

        FLIPPA in my opinion is the fastest way to make your first money online.

        1 day to create a quality website
        1 day to write a copy and launch the listing
        3 days for the listing to end

        In 5 days you can have anywhere between $50 and $300 with a completely new site that brings no traffic or revenue.

        You can then use this money to buy some old high PR domains, build websites with them and again sell them on Flippa for a higher average price.

          Sounds interesting! But what kind of websites are people buying there?
          Thanks you for your answer!

    Do you have $20 to spare?

    You can surely try out warrior for hire section and provide some services. What are some of the skill set that you can sell?
    Providing services is one of the more direct & low risk way to get some initial funds.

    There's no one solution for everyone.

    Whilst I might be good at website sales, someone else could be a genius at article marketing, and you might do better at YouTube marketing..

    You can't expect others to choose what direction you should go, because there's just no way for them to tell you what you'd be good at without actually watching you progress.

    I know when I first started I thought I'd be amazing at Fiverr and it really did take off for me, I ended up selling a good 100 gigs in a short period of time, but I later realized that I was even better at website creation and charged a premium price.. with just 1 client I made more money than I made with Fiverr.

    There are others that have joined Fiverr and have done terrible.. no sales after months.. and then they hop onto affiliate marketing and BOOM, profits.

    It's all about what you can do.. not what others choose for you to do.

      You probably need to have a mentor/coach or some who experienced in online money making business.
      You will benefit from his/her experience as you learn the new tricks.
      all the best!

    avoid the shiny object syndrome, pick a method and set some goals/targets and work it until you generate some $. Dont jump from one idea to the next.

    Id take time to read through the forums, particularly the sticky's and you'll get a feel for who to follow, avoid etc.

    Once you start on something, stick it! until you make it work.

    work smart not hard

    Is there a particular niche that you know well, or want to know well? You can build a niche site in pretty much any niche you want. The only caveat would be you want to build a niche site in an area where people spend money.

    You can do quite well if you have your own product. What can you build a product around? Who would want it?

    A mentor is a good idea, but there's a lot of great advice here on the Warrior Forum. The only thing is that it will take you time to find it and decide on who's advice to follow. That's always the challenge. The information is out there, but you'll need to spend time finding it rather than paying someone who's already put it all together.

    Good luck!

    If you know how to create content, then maybe you should start from there. It widens your room for potential income.

    Try ebay or fiverr. I'm convinced my 12-year old niece could make money with this. If you want your own site for higher profits, no price wars, and more control... learn how to do email marketing, list building, backend marketing, and how to create information products. If you want to sell wholesale products on your site, this is a feasible option too. Just make sure you do the math in your business.
