I am completely new to the internet marketing world and I am struggling to understand all the lingo and separating the scams from the real opportunities out there. I am not against working for money and I am not looking to get rich quick. I am simply looking for a way to replace about $1000 in lost income. I am drowning in bills and I need something that will work sooner than later. I am a stay at home mom of two special needs kids so I cannot do phone work and my time is limited on the pc. I need something that will make the most with what little time I do have on here, that is simple to understand, I don't have to wait months to see any real profit and that doesn't cost a lot of money with tons of upsells to work. I may have $25-50 to spend on a product that will get me to where I need to be. If you know of any programs that could help me achieve my goal or willing to give me any advise, I would greatly appreciate it. I have been trying two direct sell businesses but so far have spent more money than I have made. Thank you in advance

    Have you tried affiliate marketing? With affiliate marketing you can set up for an extremely small amount of money and still make money. If you're doing video then you don't have to spend a dime.

    If you're thinking about joining Clickbank (I recommend it) which is an affiliate network filled with products that you can promote and make a commission off of, I'd recommend these offers. These have been the best converting offers that my students have promoted.

      This. Clickbank and affiliate marketing is a great way for many newbies to make their first $$$.

      It all comes down to taking action, having perseverance, and never giving up on your dreams or your goals.

    What Danny has posted here is really quite priceless, and great advice for you starting out.

    See if any of those products get your interest, and try to stick one specific niche to start with.

    That way you can set a Twitter account (free) and a Facebook Fanpage (free), concentrating on one niche, and to begin with promoting one product. So you don't feel overwhelmed, wondering what to do next.

    Best of luck!

    It can be tough knowing what's legitimate and what's not when starting out as an internet marketer. Researching and learning internet marketing over time will enable you to spot scams much easier. It's tough unless you know what to look for, which only comes from experience i'm afraid.

    You say you want to replace $1000 lost in income, and that get rich quick is not in your thinking. Well that's a good thing for one, because it doesn't really exist in this game.

    So if internet marketing is your chosen path for making money online, then my advice would be to look at reviews of internet/affiliate marketing courses and then pick one when you know for sure it's legitimate. It's not hard to suss out.

    I mean a course is not necessary to make money with affiliate marketing if you put time in to learn about traffic generation. You could set up a free blog right now and start promoting products for free as an affiliate, but unless you know how to get traffic it's pointless.

    The good courses out there are mostly by top affiliate bloggers anyway so that's probably your route if this is what you want. I'm just saying it's possible without doing so. It depends on whether you have patience for trial & error or want to learn from someone who knows the game straight off.

    Good luck to you what ever you do!

    There's lots of free, good advice here on here. Study different money-making ideas and learn how they operate. Some require money upfront, some don't. Some require a domain name and/or web hosting. Some don't. I would say to opt for the "tried and true" methods (they require driving traffic/sales to affiliate offers, or creating and driving traffic/sales to your own product) over systems that seem "too good to be true".

    Some good advice I keep hearing, is "don't pay attention to what they have to sell, but how they're selling it to you." If you can avoid the urge to buy (I gotta be transparent here and admit I personally can't ), you can study different email marketers and how they market to you.

    You can also get a great "mentor" via membership program coaching that costs $17 a month, if you think that is do-able. Trouble is, you have to not only learn the stuff, but implement it. That is the hardest thing to do.

    1) I am completely new to the internet marketing world and I am struggling to understand all the lingo and separating the scams from the real opportunities out there. It shouldn't be that hard - but because you don't get the lingo, you're stuck. You will have to figure this out by trial and error. Unless you pay someone to sort it out for you.

    2) I am not against working for money and I am not looking to get rich quick. I am simply looking for a way to replace about $1000 in lost income. This mentality is the way to remain. You won't get rich quick, and you will have to work for the money.

    3) I am drowning in bills and I need something that will work sooner than later. If you are desperate, starting this business isn't wise. I hate to let you down.

    4) I am a stay at home mom of two special needs kids so I cannot do phone work and my time is limited on the pc. I need something that will make the most with what little time I do have on here, that is simple to understand, I don't have to wait months to see any real profit and that doesn't cost a lot of money with tons of upsells to work. I have tons of genuine respect for your personal situation. You are likely a very strong individual who knows how to get things done. If you want to make sales every now and then with a WSO, there are plenty that will get you those sporadic sales. If you want to make real money, and do it consistently, it's going to take some time to learn while you earn. It doesn't have to take months, but it could. Be warned.

    5) I may have $25-50 to spend on a product that will get me to where I need to be. If you know of any programs that could help me achieve my goal or willing to give me any advise, I would greatly appreciate it. With that amount to invest, you are fighting an uphill battle. Again, I don't want to squash your dreams - but in the situation you are in (drowning in bills, two special needs kids to care for, not a lot of time) it is going to be tough to gain ground because of the heaviness of the crown you currently wear. It CAN be done, but it won't be easy.

    6) I have been trying two direct sell businesses but so far have spent more money than I have made. Quit these immediately.

    You are in a position that plenty of others find themselves in - but my suggestion is to save your $50.

    There will be people that will tell you that the $50 you have to invest is plenty to 'make it happen', and in their circumstances, that may have been true.

    If you really believe you can make it - then you can. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    It's just going to take work - and you won't get rich overnight.

      A desperate person looking for a way to crank out income through internet marketing...hmm. I think you just hit the motherlode site for advice.

      The simplest first action is to inventory your skills. Can you write?

      If so, then set up a personal website and start offering ghostwriting services. You'll need to establish some credentials so be sure to ask your clients for a short testimonial and put this on your website as proof. You can advertise in the Warrior Forum Classified Ads, run a WSO special to kick-start your writing business, establish a profile and track record on a freelance site like Elance or Odesk...

      That's a place to start. In any market, you have to have something worth the barter. Many folks don't have money to invest in a joint venture project and have to look internally at their own skills.

      Good luck!

    I would recommend you go to YouTube and look up a girl called Lisa Irby - she is the real deal - she shares a lot of free info on affiliate marketing, and she is ethical. I would then choose to either learn affiliate marketing to make money through something you are passionate about, or at least pick just one type of thing and stick at it till you master it. Don't jump from one thing to another until you get one thing working/

    Best of luck!

    I personally make great money through marketing on YouTube. It's perfect for a person just starting out, because you don't have to build websites, or spend money on advertising.

    Plus, it's fun, and easy to do. Give it a try, I think you might find that as a good solution to your problems.

    Agreed with Eric, find a mentor and learn how to do the proper research to see which offers convert (if you're getting into affiliate marketing). If you can find where the audience hangs out and what offers convert you will likely be able to make some money.

    Good luck!

    I hate to be the one to tell you this, but this mindset will almost surely lead to you losing whatever you have to spare. You can't focus on building a lasting income when bills are due, and given your circumstances where you can't get on the phone that adds an extra layer of difficulty. There is no $25-$50 product that will magically make you $1,000 per month "quickly" without having to build up to it - and anyone who says there is is selling you something.

    You need to fix your finances first ... have a trusted friend watch your kids in the evening and deliver pizza if you have to, you can easily make $500 a week doing that. You won't find your answer in an info product, and trying to start a business with no money to invest, no ability to talk to customers, no time to build an income, and bills piling up isn't a way to win.

        Of course there some quick ways of making money online - but it requires your ability to do some kind of online service for others. Like on Fiverr. Think about what you can do for others... and if there's nothing you can offer - you still have an opportunity to learn something and then offer it...

        That's just one of the ideas. Sure, you can then sell your service also here at WF, section Warriors For Hire.

    Hi mlalively,

    The basic concept of doing business online is to set up your own website and sell a product; There are many courses available here on the WF that teach you how to build wordpress site and create your own product to sell it on your site.

    While affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online -- it however will more then likely take time and money to invest before you start seeing a profit.

    There are several new skills involved like:
    1. Finding a profitable niche
    2. creating a website
    3. writing follow up messages
    4. Finding a profitable product to promote
    5. Lastly learning how to drive traffic

    I think the one that people struggle with the most and takes the longest time to master is traffic generation. This can be done with your own time or if you have money to invest -- but it will take more then 50 dollars to learn about paid traffic.

    So if I were you, I would go to places like Elance, Fiverr, or Odesk and sell your services where you can make some nice money.

    In the meantime you can also be creating your own business.

    Hope this helps

    Hi there,

    Sorry to hear your in this situation. Money troubles can be so worrying, there have been times when i have been so in debt i used to cry, however i found the more i worried the further I would get from having any more money, then new ideas would be blocked from my mind. I don't think there is a quick fix, but with the money you have I would look around on here and see what products suit you. I would start there and take it step by step. I get paid weekly so I spend a bit on each time on what I need to push forward. In time I believe it will come as it will for you. However I would look at it as a long term strategy rather than a quick fix. Besides if you get the right training you could go far with it, depends what you want from it.

    Best wishes

    From my experience, making $1,000 as a newbie is not all that easy. Creating an online business can be very difficult because there are many distractions and offers that you will run into, and it takes a lot of discipline to stick with one thing and dedicate a couple "productive" hours each day to building your business.

    So, the best thing to do is choose a method like the clickbank and affiliate marketing method that Danny advised, and stick with it. Don't be afraid to make mistakes or fail and stay disciplined to that one method until you make your $1000.

    Wow lots of great (and not so great - don't like the delivering pizza idea - you have enough on your hands you will just burn out otherwise). First, breathe...then, take it one day at a time. Assess what you currently have - roof over your heads, your children (I too have chronically ill child) food in the fridge.

    Now, the quickest way I made money as a stay at home Mom online was through buying one of Tiffany Lambert's books called Ghoswriting for cash. She teaches you the basic ropes if you can write - and even if you can't - to get started. It worked for me. I forget how much it costs but she has an "Angel" fund that her members contribute to help people just like yourself.

    Google her blog for help she is credible. You can do this but don't try and solve your financial problems all in one day. Just take baby steps and figure out how you can do one small thing today that will get you in the direction you want to go.

    Another great product that made me some quick cash as soon as I read it was Dennis Becker's 5 Bucks a Day. Google that as well. Good solid advice in that one.

    Good luck to you, I have faith in you that you can do this.

    Sincerely,
    Valarie

    P.S. Brendon's right! Don't waste any more time or money on direct sales. I did that for years - Mary Kay, Usborne Books, Cookie Lee Jewelry, Once Upon a Time - most of the time I barely broke even and ended up with a lot of product that became gifts at Christmas time for family and friends.

    I am sort of a newbie now going for 4 months. I would say it is hard work which takes lost of focus and energy. The most important thing I would say is to find some thing you passionate about. Find a Mentor someone who has a proven record and who you can speak too. Not just webinars an online communication some one who offer a chat on the phone and skype, which have a good following in your area where you live. This is good as usually they have meet-up groups where you can meet and talk to local newbies or oldies. Have a look @ Find Meetup Groups near you - Meetup for groups in your area Or Stick with this forum and build contacts ask question you will find answers. I on the other hand found my self a really good Education system with great support a great private community with meetup groups around the globe. You can have a look at it http://tinyurl.com/pg6ul4u

    My advise is stay focus get a notepook (small one and a pen that you carry with you make note of ideas and remember build a list and treat the list like you treat your self and your best friends Feel free to contact me at any time.
