Asking for help to make money online..

41 replies
Sup fellow warriors,

Hows it going welp I'm back on here giving the internet yet another try to make some money I hope this time i succeed because i failed miserably last. So i asked on here how to make 25 dollars a day online and if it was even possible? Apparently to some people it is possible notice I said some because for me its not happening. I took the advice of people on here telling me to go to freelance websites and I did but i got no jobs BLAH. Now im hoping someone can tell me how to make some money without the freelancing. If someone can give me some ideas on what ha worked for them in the past and still working for them now That would be awesome. Again my goal isn't to make lots of money online but a small amount and if bigger amounts come than they come but I would like to learn to make some sort of money online thanks. My new monetary goal is 10 dollars a day online. Thank you and I hope everyone has a good night.

    What worked for me in the past when starting out was Fiverr. However the first order came after 5 months. After that there was a steady supply of orders for me at least. I never made a consistent $25 or $10 per day. But I'd make $200 to $400 on most months. Sometimes an entire week goes by without orders and then there are orders everyday. I say it depends and it's something you should try if you have no other option.

    Otherwise get a JOB

    I struggled myself for a long time myself so don't feel bad about whatever failures of the past. Making money online is not easy but once you have a system or someone to hold your hand and train you then it gets easier.

    For someone starting out I would recommend getting started with Adsense it is the easier/faster way to see earnings coming in, in a very short time. Then once you see that making money online isn't all that hard you will have confidence to move into bigger projects for the long term. Adsense will give you that $10 a day with a little hard work and planning.

    I started with a recipe blog and Pinterest a few years ago and done great with it. That recipe blog still brings me $5 to $10 a day and I haven't done anything with it for two years. That is the power of Pinterest and Adsense working together.

    There is no way I could teach you everything on this post but learn this one thing, DO NOT go out and buy everything that someone tells you to buy to make money online. Pick a system and stick to it until you get real good before moving on to your next project.

    Start with Adsense like I said it is the fastest way to make money and respect the TOS of Google and you will not have to worry about your account getting ban. I have had mine for many years with no problems. But don't quit your job with Adsense alone. After Adsense move into Affiliate Marketing for some security and long term income, then creating your own products for Millionaire Statues.

    Hope this helps, if you want some steps with getting started with Adsense or Affiliate Marketing, just PM me I will get back to as soon as possible.

    Don't let anyone steal your dream of working fulltime online.

      If you are just starting on Fiverr (since you said you tried it and I am assuming that means you would be happy to earn from Fiverr gigs), it is a good idea to offer big bonuses (such as buy one get one free) while starting out, until you build reputation. Yes, it means a lot of hard work, but that additional work will increase your probability to get started significantly, as opposed to waiting indefinitely.

        Clarity is a HUGE part of IM success. I hope this post brings some clarity. It's so simple when you know it -- and darn difficult when you don't! I owe my mentors a world of thanks for bringing this clarity.

        IM is actually pretty simple: you can sell only one of two things:

        1. Products
        2. Services

        That's it!

        And selling products or services online happens in the same basic way for everyone, no matter what they're selling:

        Traffic > Opt-in page > Autoresponder series (or e-zine) > Sales page

        That's it! It's just that simple. (We IMers tend to overcomplicate things.)

        But no matter what your niche is, or whether you're selling a product or a service, do you know what your business model is?

        A business model is the framework or skeleton of your business. Essentially there are three types of online business models:

        1. Membership-based model

        A membership-based business model allows you to build a community of people (your members) who are as passionate about your subject as you are. Your membership fees can be monthly or annual, but either way, you're building recurring, passive income.

        There are a lot of resources and information out there to help you build a membership-based business if you're interested in doing this.

        2. Product-based model

        Selling products allows you to maximize your time and effort by selling items over and over again. This can be hard goods or it can be information products. Information marketing is it's own business model under the product-based model. Information marketing allows you to take your brain to the bank by creating a product ONCE based on what you know and selling it over and over again.

        Affiliate marketing falls under both models. You can choose to market either products or services as an affiliate.

        3. Service-based model

        Selling services can be great for 1) generating quick cash (as in the case of article writing or video producing) and 2) establishing your expertise and getting testimonials.

        However, in the long run, your goal should be to offer services at a PREMIUM. The biggest advantage of IM is LEVERAGE. You're able to leverage your time, money and expertise exponentially online. We all have just 24 hours each day. Time to get ruthless about what you expect for those hours you spend in IM each day. Expect more of yourself and more from your business friends, clients, partners, etc.

        What results are you getting for those hours you spend online each day? Ultimately, your services should be at the bottom of your funnel and cost the most since they involve your time and personal attention. (We all have a limited amount of time each day.)

        The fun (and confusion) comes in with all of the endless mix-and-match possibilities of the above models. If you're just starting or still struggling to make money, keep it simple:

        Pick just ONE!

        1. Pick ONE niche. (Something you're interested in and know something about.)

        2. Pick ONE target market for your product or service. (Who will buy what you're offering? The more specific you are, the more you narrow it down, the more successful you'll be.)

        3. Pick ONE business model.

        Now that you're clear about what business you're in, FOCUS! (And stop buying any info not related to your niche and target market, period!)

        F -- Follow
        O -- One
        C -- Course
        U -- Until
        S -- Successful


        And remember: build a list, Build a List, BUILD A LIST!

        In IM, it's easy to put the cart before the horse. Take a deep breath, step back and consider what type of business you REALLY want. Don't worry about getting traffic or buying that expensive traffic product until you know 1) what your business model is, 2) what niche you're in and 3) WHO your target market is!

        Successful business people will tell you that MARKETING is more than half the effort that's needed for success anyway. So pick a niche, target market and business model. Then spend most of your time and effort marketing it.

        If you DON'T have a solid plan or system, THAT'S when it's hard. A good system will shave YEARS (and save you big $$$) off of your learning curve

        That's why I recommend investing in at least one good, comprehensive IM course (or mentor who will give you such a system) instead of jumping from one $37 e-book to the next. A lot of people here complain about not being able to make any money. But neither are they willing to invest in their business. (Buying a random bunch of $37 e-books doesn't count.)

        The best thing I ever did was invest in a comprehensive IM course aimed at REAL business owners, not just other IM wannabes. Yes it was $1500. (It's no longer available.) But it was truly some of the best A-Z IM info I ever bought. Everything else I've learned (from the $37 e-books) since has simply been plugged into this system.

        My two best recommendations for phenomenal IM training programs are Ali Brown's Elevate program (ElevateBizTraining.com) and Jeff Walker's Product Launch Formula (ProductLaunchFormula.com)

        Get a solid plan or system and then work the plan!

        Hope this helps!

            As mentioned, don't over think this. Pick a
            product, build something around that product, and
            keep going until you see a result (that's the hard
            part).

            It's best to pick a product with a higher or even
            recurring commission if possible. That way you
            can leverage your efforts.

            And focus on a unique angle to promote that
            product. For example, dissect it and focus on one
            element of the product. There will be less
            competition that way.

            The typical mindset is "$10 a day" but commissions
            don't usually come in like that. One day you can
            make nothing, and the next day you can see $60.

            It's not like a job where you are paid a
            consistent amount like clockwork. It's kind of
            like losing weight. You might want to lose 2
            pounds per week but some weeks you might lose 1
            and others you might lose 3.

            Above everything else, take action and don't stop
            until you see a result. Then keep doing what
            you're doing.

            There is not a "one size fits all" marketing plan
            out there. It often takes trial and error in
            combination with consistency.

            If there was a magic formula everyone would be
            successful.

    Stay focused, seeing you have already quit once thats not a good start.
    Believe in yourself. You seem to be self doubting a lot.

    Focus on one plan and get it right. Even if you do not see any success early on, perseverance is key.
    John Chow did not make a cent blogging for 8 months, but now he's making 6-7 figures.

    If he had quit earlier on he wouldn't even taste this kind of success.

    Yes, it is totally possible, but it takes a lot of work and persistence to make it happen on a consistent basis. I would suggest that starting out with simple PPC ads using Bing and a good converting affiliate offer would be something to think about. Wherever you start, just know that most marketers spend a considerable amount of time (a year or two or three is not uncommon) before a steady income can be realized. There's just a lot to learn. You can do it, but you will have to be patient!

    How you deal with this doesn't really have a formula. What works for me isn't necessarily going to work for you and vice versa. Very strange. I think, most importantly, money is made online when goods and services change hands. It is commerce, just like the old days. Only with the advent of the internet, all of this stuff happens online and a lot more people are getting the chance to PUSH product, as opposed to the more select group and high outlays experienced in the old bricks and mortar type business in the past.

    My advice to you. If you stay focused and never give up, you will find something that works for you.

    The best way still remains offering a service. Its a pity you failed earlier. My advise is to still give fiverr a trial. Maybe you need to improve on marketing your fiverr gigs.

  • Big money comes only to those whk invest big money, time and effort in their venture. Nothing happens by accident in this business.

    There is luck but even luck in marketing has a price and the more you increase your probability in getting your brand or squeeze page seen by investing paid ads plus organic traffic production, that is when you get to make profit or at least break even in your investments while building list and followers.

      I wouldn't mind investing money and saying that investing is needed to some extent, but I wouldn't say you need money to make money.

      You don't have to invest much cash to make cash back. It's not impossible to make money without investing.

    hi there,
    my opinion is that 90% of websites who offering you any money making system, dont work. Most people are just naive and believe how they will achieve high goals very fast and easy, but without real work is nothing, but spending a lot of money for special secret trainings, tips, guides,...
    The point is that almost no one will share with you a secret, which brings them money..at least not as long as it brings them money..
    Most people who tell you how rich they become with theirs special system, they didn’t earn money that way. But they are making money by selling others there so called secret system!!

    That's because there is no "secret."

    #1 Learn email marketing
    #2 Choose a product
    #3 Advertise

    I can't explain it any simpler then that.

    Clarity is a HUGE part of IM success. I hope this post brings some clarity. It's so simple when you know it -- and darn difficult when you don't! I owe my mentors a world of thanks for bringing this clarity.

    IM is actually pretty simple: you can sell only one of two things:

    1. Products
    2. Services

    That's it!

    And selling products or services online happens in the same basic way for everyone, no matter what they're selling:

    Traffic > Opt-in page > Autoresponder series (or e-zine) > Sales page

    That's it! It's just that simple. (We IMers tend to overcomplicate things.)

    But no matter what your niche is, or whether you're selling a product or a service, do you know what your business model is?

    A business model is the framework or skeleton of your business. Essentially there are three types of online business models:

    1. Membership-based model

    A membership-based business model allows you to build a community of people (your members) who are as passionate about your subject as you are. Your membership fees can be monthly or annual, but either way, you're building recurring, passive income.

    There are a lot of resources and information out there to help you build a membership-based business if you're interested in doing this.

    2. Product-based model

    Selling products allows you to maximize your time and effort by selling items over and over again. This can be hard goods or it can be information products. Information marketing is it's own business model under the product-based model. Information marketing allows you to take your brain to the bank by creating a product ONCE based on what you know and selling it over and over again.

    3. Service-based model

    Selling services can be great for 1) generating quick cash (as in the case of article writing or video producing) and 2) establishing your expertise and getting testimonials.

    However, in the long run, your goal should be to offer services at a PREMIUM. The biggest advantage of IM is LEVERAGE. You're able to leverage your time, money and expertise exponentially online. We all have just 24 hours each day. Time to get ruthless about what you expect for those hours you spend in IM each day. Expect more of yourself and more from your business friends, clients, partners, etc.

    What results are you getting for those hours you spend online each day? Ultimately, your services should be at the bottom of your funnel and cost the most since they involve your time and personal attention. (We all have a limited amount of time each day.)

    The fun (and confusion) comes in with all of the endless mix-and-match possibilities of the above models. If you're just starting or still struggling to make money, keep it simple:

    Affiliate marketing falls under both models. You can choose to market either products or services as an affiliate.

    Pick just ONE!

    1. Pick ONE niche. (Something you're interested in and know something about.)

    2. Pick ONE target market for your product or service. (Who will buy what you're offering? The more specific you are, the more you narrow it down, the more successful you'll be.)

    3. Pick ONE business model.

    Now that you're clear about what business you're in, FOCUS! (And stop buying any info not related to your niche and target market, period!)

    F -- Follow
    O -- One
    C -- Course
    U -- Until
    S -- Successful


    And remember: build a list, Build a List, BUILD A LIST!

    In IM, it's easy to put the cart before the horse. Take a deep breath, step back and consider what type of business you REALLY want. Don't worry about getting traffic or buying that expensive traffic product until you know 1) what your business model is, 2) what niche you're in and 3) WHO your target market is!

    Successful business people will tell you that MARKETING is more than half the effort that's needed for success anyway. So pick a niche, target market and business model. Then spend most of your time and effort marketing it.

    If you DON'T have a solid plan or system, THAT'S when it's hard. A good system will shave YEARS (and save you big $$$) off of your learning curve

    That's why I recommend investing in at least one good, comprehensive IM course (or mentor who will give you such a system) instead of jumping from one $37 e-book to the next. A lot of people here complain about not being able to make any money. But neither are they willing to invest in their business. (Buying a random bunch of $37 e-books doesn't count.)

    The best thing I ever did was invest in a comprehensive IM course aimed at REAL business owners, not just other IM wannabes. Yes it was $1500. (It's no longer available.) But it was truly some of the best A-Z IM info I ever bought. Everything else I've learned (from the $37 e-books) since has simply been plugged into this system.

    My two best recommendations for phenomenal IM training programs are Ali Brown's Elevate program (ElevateBizTraining.com) and Jeff Walker's Product Launch Formula (ProductLaunchFormula.com)

    Get a solid plan or system and then work the plan!

    Hope this helps!

    Michelle

    The only reason people suggest freelance/fiverr as a means of making money is because there's little to no initial investment. The problem with this is your earnings are limited.

    If you're more serious and want to take a bit more of a risk try paid marketing. Teespring is hot right now and I still make 2-3k a month with it.

    Anything takes a decent amount of time to get profitable though so if you're the type to give up early then IM or entrepreneurship in general is not for you.

    Teespring took me 50 campaigns to break through but now I know the system to find good campaigns.

    Good luck!

    If you want to make money online, you must first have the discipline and the mentality to never give up!

    If you let obstacles and set backs hold you back, than you are never going to get ahead!

    The key to getting ahead is by offering value, so ask yourself, what do you offer with value?

    It can be an ebook, video guide, it can be anything. If you realize you are in the business to

    help other people the money becomes secondary. I understand we all want to make money.

    But if your main focus is how you can squeeze a dime out of somebody else over delivering value,

    than you will never get ahead. How do you deliver value? You can sell a product or service?

    If you are selling your own product that has great value you can make money much quicker.

    If you are selling a service on Warriors for Hire or Fiverr you can make money quick if it's a good.

    If you are selling affiliate offers than it typically takes 30 days+ to get paid that's if you make sales.

    The key to be successful in business is to lead with value and deliver just as you say.

    Make your customers happy and they will gladly whip out there wallet and pay you.

    Hope this helped.

    I hate this philosophy. Hey a small check is bigger than no check, but if you're going to do this thing for life, then aim for the ceiling. You might think it's immoral to make obscene amounts of money - but i dont. If i were you, you should be studying on how to rake in thousands a day. I hear you when you say that "if bigger amounts come than they come...", but this is like the basketball coach who has a killer squad, but his main goal is win the conference tournament - instead of winning the whole SHABBANG!! So his entire team has national championship talent, but is only looking to be local city *standouts*.

    P.S. Making money is easy. I'm sure by the end of the year you'll start making some money. Stick to the legit leaders on this forum. If they have something good to offer, you should probably buy it. It's called a shortcut.

      You struck that nail directly on it's head. OP hasn't responded since his first post over a month ago, but look at all the self promotion....

      The same copy/paste content from one person, outright link drops and all kinds of 'quality content' as they call it, lol.

    I would say fiverr but you should work little bit to drive traffic to your gigs as well. From social media or this forum might work

    Freelancing is not for everyone as it only provides a sporadic income if you are working through Fiverr or other site that does not allow you to build an email list. If you are really going to succeed at freelancing, then you will need to sell your services independently to others who you can contact after the sale via Skype or email (something which is not allowed on Fiverr).

    A lot of people here talk about how easy it is to make money on Fiverr but what I'd like to know is how can you actually make money selling your time for 5$. I mean I get it you can make a little money but there must be more to it otherwise why would people bother, it pays more to work in a fast food joint...

    I think a good idea for you is to create your own blog. Find something that you're passionate about (that way you don't get tired of it after a few weeks), set up a wordpress website, and start writing about things that you're interested in.

    There are SO many websites that offer useful resources on how to grow a blog and generate solid revenue from it.

    I have a website (you can see the link on my profile) that offers free tips on starting your own blog by yourself (no technical experience needed) and then growing it to make passive income.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

I took the advice of people on here telling me to go to freelance websites and I did but i got no jobs BLAH. Now im hoping someone can tell me how to make some money without the freelancing. If someone can give me some ideas on what ha worked for them in the past and still working for them now That would be awesome. Again my goal isn't to make lots of money online but a small amount and if bigger amounts come than they come but I would like to learn to make some sort of money online thanks. My new monetary goal is 10 dollars a day online. Thank you and I hope everyone has a good night.

    $25/day is TOTALLY do-able on Fiverr, and that doesn't take much work or struggle. Fiverr's a lot easier to figure out than internet marketing, and it can give you a nice cushion of money so that you can start working on something bigger.

    That's exactly what I did. I FAILED with internet marketing for two years. Then I discovered Fiverr, made $5000 in 6 months, and used that money to get my internet marketing business going.
