Have you found a good way to make money on-line? I don't mean $10 or $20 dollars a month. I mean real money, like $1000 + a month. There are so many programs out there, promising this. Is it true? Can it be done? Must you invest a lot of money? Take care.

I have been running a business now for about 7 months that is showing promise. It's a network marketing business so you need to really like talking to people. The thing about programs that pay in the thousands is that they generally take some time to build and you need to commit yourself. I'd be happy to tell you about it if you like. PM me and we'll talk, Jay

Thank-you for commenting. I am not much of a talker, I like to write. Talking is not my thing. But, the programs tell you, within 24 hours you will make so much money. That's is not true right? This last one said within 24 hours I would make $250. Nothing happened. Take care.

I had be trying that too, writing articles. But, I did not get into it enough. I love to write, but creative writing, I should try to make real articles. Thank-you for you advise. Take care.

making 1000 per month or more will take a little bit of work but it's not impossible. You need to combine multiple streams of income to do it. It also helps if you have a marketable skill or two. What different streams of income can you think of? Also it's not a matter of joining sites, but rather what you can create.

create multiple theme base blogs with affiliate links pertaining to blog topic, create your own style of home decor, create wearable art, create your own style of jewelry, all for sale and so on. If you can think, and I'm sure you can, then you can create. The sky is the limit and all you have to do is put your mind to it.

Sounds cool. So, I could sell my paintings on the blogs. Just need a camera. Yes, I will think about that. Nice idea. Thank-you. Have a nice day!

I'd be careful if sites like that offer that much. Well Im bad in business so I guess I'm cutting on a lot of expenses so I could stretch my budget since I have no means of earning more.

Hi Theresaaiza! How are you? Well yes, I have learned to be careful. But, I am still hoping there is something real out there. I would love to work from home.(I do, but I mean to earn money like a real job.) Seeing as my back is a mess, and I cannot go back to my job, I need something new. My back is worn out, but I still like to think I have a brain that can work. hahaha! Thank-you for commenting. Take care, have a nice day.

Hi, Yes it certainly can be done - but - it can't be done quickly. To really start earning good money online you have to be prepared to put in some time and effort first. Much like you would if you were working a real life job or opening a real offline business you can't open the doors one day and expect to be flooded with customers the next without doing a bit of groundwork first. For me personally monetising websites and/or blogs is the way to go - by adding a few different income streams I'm earning from different sources which also has the benefit of if something goes wrong with one of them I still have the others earning for me. You can set up your own sites without any expense at all or depending on what you want to do you might have to outlay a small amount of money to get certain programs etc. For example I've created several sites on free webhosting that haven't cost me a cent - yet I've earnt from them. While I still have them hanging around the place I also have my own hosting which means paying hosting fees each month along with a once a year domain name payment - Because I can do more with these sites on my own hosting I'm earning more from them. This is an ongoing income that really now that the sites are set up I don't really have do to anything to them if I don't want - but I enjoy it so I tweak them here and there. The only program I use that actually has a once off upfront fee I joined a month or so ago - it's a pretty new program (though I know the creator quite well and know that it was more than worth it to join because what he teaches is more than anyone could hope for) but even then in that short time I've doubled what the program is worth anyway. So really it all comes down to what you're prepared to put in as to how much you'll get out of it. Put in the necessary time first and you'll build a steadily increasing and recurring online income. And remember the most important thing of all - if it sounds too good to be true - it probably is.

"If it sounds too good to be true it probably is." There you are so right! I have free sites as well, every once in a while I sell something. And it has been getting a little better. I guess I am to impatient. hahaha! But, I see what you mean, so I will keep going, thank-you. Take care, have a nice day. And thank-you for your advice.

That looks like a interesting program. But, does it earn you money? Or is it more a hobby thing? Good Luck. Thank-you for commenting. Take care.

Hi Margajoe! I have seen a lot of sites promising hundreds and thousands of dollar earnings but most of the time they will also ask for some payment before they will show you how. The only earnings I got from online is a couple of dollars and haven't exceeded 20 dollars. Take care and blessings to you! lovelots..faith

Hi Faith! Yes that's what I mean too. So many promises, and nothing really happens. They should have a law against false promises! Maybe they do, I would like to know how to use that. Thank-you for commenting Faith. Take care, blessings and greetings to you.

I'm very sorry to say this but I haven't found a single site that pays that much a month. I have seen some people making from what I have read in forums about $100 + a month online but I haven't heard anyone making $1000 or more.

Me neither, that is why if someone is making that kind of money, I would like to know what program it is. So many programs are scam, it is not fair. Making people feel like there is a way to get out of financial troubles. It is depressing when you realize there were not telling you the truth. There should be a law against this. Thank-you for commenting. Take care.

With the US economy going through recession, there are not enough ways to make legitimate cash. But even though this is true and i am an american, i have found the best way to make lots of cash, is by developing the programs/scripts used to make the sites work.

Oh that sounds difficult. Is it a lot of work? Can anyone do that? I don't think so. Thank-you for commenting. Take care.
