Hello All,
Well my name is Vanessa, and I am a complete newbie when it comes
to making money online. I've always really wanted to try it, because I'm
constantly online! The thing is I have no idea where to start.
I am willing to do the work. The problem I have is sticking with something.
So if you can please make some suggestions as to where to start.
If you were completely new or wanted to teach someone, where would
you send them? Please and thank you!

Vanessa

    Hi Vanessa,

    There truly are so many different ways you can tackle the world of Internet Marketing. I believe the first few questions you should ask yourself are:

    1 - What do you enjoy?
    2 - What are your general interests?
    3 - What skill sets do you currently posses?
    4 - What skill sets do you want to acquire?

    Somewhere in there you'll have a better picture of where to start. In many cases, simply learning how to build a website with a blog can be a great place to start because for one, learning to build a website can truly open up a multitude of opportunities, and two, you can focus on something of interest to you to write about. If you can build a website of value and build traffic to it, then the opportunities to earn an income become even greater.

    Hope this helps.

    Hey Vanessa, you have a long road ahead, but you CAN do it. If I could go back, I'd probably start with freelancing, for example, article writing, or backlinks building, copywiring, etc, etc. Anything you can do to start building a trickle of money online, even if it takes your time. Don't go for the big score right away.

    Are you good at sales? Copywriting is a great choice because it's great money and it's a mandatory skill for MMO. Also, you can learn SEO and then sell those services to people as you get better at it. Before you know it, you'll know traffic and conversions and then you're all set.

    Elizabeth gave really good questions so you'll know what to start with. In relation to knowing what skills you already have to start with, pick one and then concentrate on developing that rather than doing lots of things at the same time. So if you're good at writing, focus in improving just that.

    When it comes to starting, if it's earning online that you want (in whatever way), you could try signing up to freelance websites (oDesk, Outsource Factor, elance, etc). That should help you get the feel of things without having to worry about some other things like where to get your job and if a client pays or not.

    Keep on working at it! Goodluck!

    Hi Vanessa, I was complete newbie too. Although I have a job. I always wanted to see how IM works. So I decided to give it a try. What I think you just have to take actions. Pick up a good method or just get a good WSO. Implement it and do it until you see results.

    This is what I think. Maybe people better experienced than me can answer this much better.

    I'm a complete newbie too. To get my start, I needed to go through a couple of WSOs. Some worked, a lot didn't. What I'm trying to say is, to get your start, you could try going over a few WSO offers, and choose something that you feel that you could be very comfortable with. You'd be surprised.

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I guess I better get to brainstorming on what I'd like to enjoy the most online. Whither its freelancing, blogging or building a site.
    Hopefully something hits me soon!
    Thanks again to you all!

    Start by reading Internet related eBooks or sites so that you get to know the basics and lingo of the Internet. The second step is to build your first website, promote it and start earning from advertising with Adsense or CPA. Last but not least, be active on this forum, you will gain alot of knowledge from other successful Internet marketers.

    Hi Vanessa, The first thing that you need to know is also the most important...... You are never making money on line, you are providing a service or need for someone and for this you should be rewarded with something that you need. I honestly know that this sounds corney, but its true. If you always think that the product is not to make you money, but to give someone that they need, then you will go far. : )

    You should start looking at Warrior Forum. Go to the WSO part and look at some attractive titles. Buy 2 or 3 of those "concepts to make money" and take action after that. You may get direct access to the guy you bought the product from so you may start there.

    The best way to make money online is by discovering problems. If you can focus on a niche and figure out what their problems are then you are golden. You can usually find a way to deliver a solution through your medium whether it be info products, consulting, software, etc.
