I have been exploring internet business for ten years and can so far only drum up a meagre amount. I guess I need some kind of help or the magic wand or something! I have plenty of time to spend online as I'm pregnant with my first child, and we are actually planning two more after that. Someone help me get started and talk me through it step by step! I don't have any or very little money to outlay as in like maybe $5 but I've joined several schemes and surfed and promoted till my knuckles were blue and still no cash!! (Or no great amount). Who wants to take me on as their protege or something?

hey puppy well you ask for the secret there really is no secret, I been in mlm for over 10 years I lost my job 10 years ago and thought what am I going to do, so basically I joined mlm or affiliate marketing tried a few and found one that worked I have now built up a downline of over 5000 personally referred affiliates and get a very nice income now a lot more than what I would get working for someone else. The secret is getting a good upline and getting the support that you need in the early days. I was lucky my upline was superb when I first got into mlm, and I had the motivation and drive to make it happen 10 years on I really over do a few hours a day now on my online business as it really takes care of itself. So making money with no financial outlay is possible but you will need to put in a time outlay though as with any online business if you can start with a little investment you will make money faster but thats the same as any business online or in real life so to speak. Good luck,

Basically the most important thing to remember is that no legitimate company is going to ask you to pay them in order for you to work for them. So NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER pay anything, not even a $1.99 shipping fee to gain so called "important information" on how to get started with them. The next thing is that the chances of you locating a site on the internet that will magically produce a reasonable pay check for you, is slim to none. If a true paycheck is what you are after, there are some good jobs out there that allow you to work from home, but you have to go about getting those jobs the old fashioned way by applying and submitting a resume for them directly through the company itself. Try looking for local companies that do "virtual office" functions or general transcription. Then go directly to the source itself. Tigerfish is one company for example. Now if extra spending money is what you are after, MyLot is great. Another source of easy extra money that is not a scam is Amazon's Mechanical Turk, where you choose a simple task put on their site by students, companies wanting reviews of their websites or many many other small tasks. Complete them and get paid. The payout amounts are not much, but most hits only take a few minutes to complete and can be completed anytime from anywhere. For me personally, I am completely addicted to reading books. I use sites like MyLot and Amazon's Mturk to fund my reading habit. As far as earning an actual paycheck to live on, I've found it best not to give up my day job.

The only two ive found that I can see have been really dependable for me is mylots and eHow i know thses two are now scams. Ive heard some people making extra income on blogging with thier own blog but it hasnt worked out for me yet. Im still tryin the blogging but think it will take alot of time and certainly more learning on my part. Good luck
