Does Anyone REALLY Know?

Hi Ya know, I've been dabbling in this kind of thing for awhile now, and I've tried all kinds of things to make money. I'm starting to think that the only real way to make money on-line is to lie and sell people the idea that you actually know something. I mean, last week I got suckered by some guy selling the virtues of something called the YAHOO 5700 GROUPS. Now don't get me wrong, I'm no dummy. I know that some things out there may really work, and I don't ever recall actually getting suckered like that before. But man! that pissed me off, and what made it even worse was the e-mail address he provided must not work because I've sent him a couple of e-mails voicing my displeasure at the whole mess and of course recieved no response. So, I keep pluggin away, hoping that something genuine might pop up. The big problem I have is that I want to find some thing that is free and you can really make money with. I won't have any trouble spending the money I make trying to make more, I just want to make a little first, is that to much to ask?

There are plenty of genuine ways to make money online but you need to be a little more specific. If you're looking for an easy way to get rich, you will be scammed every time. No matter what anyone says, real income will take at least some work. You also need to define what kind of income you want to make. If you just want a little extra money (say $100 or so monthly), you can look into paid-to-read programs or paid surveys. If you want a real income you will need to start a business. The great thing is that online businesses are not difficult to start and no where near as expensive as offline businesses. If you want to start making money that you can then invest in your business, the easiest way is through something called BUM Marketing. You can check it out at where you can learn how it works and this method won't cost you anything. While you're working on getting some money to invest back into growing a real business, I highly recommend joining to learn about all the ways that are out there to start internet marketing. Hope this helps you and good luck!

Hi eircwarren: Free is a very good price when just starting an internet business. "It takes money to make money" is not necessarily a necessity or true statement. Like you, I've tried many programs and offerings. Finally after many, many years of roaming the internet I found my internet home. You are welcome to visit and look as much as you like at the tools, news letter, down line builder, lead capture page, forum, traffic exchange, and my blog. Please feel free to ask as many questions you may have. Asking questions is a very good way to learn about programs, products, and any other item found on the internet. One good way to find out how good a program is for you would be to visit the forum and read the posts from the members of the program, customers of the products, or any offerings. I'm making a small amount of money on the net and have done this with out spending money and then spending a very small amount of money. It takes about a year or two realistically to have a business making a reasonable amount of money. True there are people who can within months have a money making business. Most people need a bit more time. For physical businesses it can take from about two years to five years to have a money making business. This is an average; some people can do this faster or slower. A lot of the tools like down line builders, lead capture pages, traffic exchanges, and tools offered by websites most of the time are good business builders. Using these tools properly can get you started nicely for free. I'm getting ready to pre-launch my website. Having your own website with your own offerings is another good way to get started in business. Anyone who is interested in visiting my internet home and learning about the website I'm going to pre-launch should instant message me on yahoo im, thank you. vpbanjo

You don't need anyone to guide you except you. I got into this business 9 years ago when I was 18 and I am thankful there were not thousands of "how to get rich online" ebooks, and products like there are now or I may not have made it. No one is going to teach you the REAL ways they make money online, that info is way too valuable, and that is if you can find someone who is actually making money, besides of course the money they are trying to scam you for to buy their product. Join free forums where people like you are and can learn from each others mistakes. I recommend the Warrior Forum out of all the available options. I guarantee that you will find all of the information there for free that you can pay for in an ebook or course.

Hi You just haven't found the right person to guide you nor the right opportunity. There are 100,000s of people making a fulltime income online, including myself. It doesn't take a big investment to get started, mainly just a website and something to sell from it. I make my living through affiliate marketing so I sell other people products for commissions. If you have any questions please get in touch. Mal Keenan

Hello. Yes it is possible to make a sound living on line, however there are a few things that you need to consider first. 1/The internet is full of conmen, scam artists and wildly crazy get rich schemes that cost you money, destroy your confidence and your faith. 2/You yourself have enough interests, knowledge and experience to create a saleable marketable website that will attract visitors. Conmen don't want you to know that - they just want your money. Having said that, I have to say that to be realy serious about on line marketing, you need to commit some cash - not much - just a little to get the ball rolling. There are genuine ways to make cash from scratch but they take hard work, but I am willing to help you I am prepare to help you if you like and am prepared to spend the time coaching you how to make money -if you're serious. I don't promise you'll be wealthy overnight, but I do promise that what I can show you is legitimate, smart and lucrative if you are willing to work
