    Hello My name is Nigel Williams and im witing this plea to anyone thats willing to teach a young man how to make money online.Im 21 years old and first started making money online at the age of 15 doing paid offers inbox dollars.I also was selling burned copies of VCDs on ebay and i later realized this was illegal so i stopped.I also had gotten wholesale drop-ship prices on shoes such as nikes and Jordans but thats really didn't turn out too good because there is thousands of sites with the same content.

    Now over the past six years ive been doing surveys,paid offers, PTCs and promoting them through blogs......i tell you there is nothing in that way to get money.the only site i really like is jillsclickcorner because you can show proof of paid offers and it guarantees a credit u but still that money i kids allowance to me .I recently signed up for Neobux and quite frankly im not impressed at all.I like the referral system but the 30 wait for direct referrals...Cmon.Ive been clicking ads on that site for over 3 days......i think i made over about one cent.

    Heres the most repetitive phrases ive heard on the net "Its a scam" and "You didn't make no money because you didn't put any effort into it ".Is there such thing as a site that can get you 100 or 200 dollars a week if you put work into it ?Is advertising the only source to make anything profitable ?Are most of these long paged sites with a buy button at the bottom really scams ? Never mind those questions........can someone work with me for at least a consistent week to earn steady reasonable money without me coming out my own pocket ?

    I honestly been thinking about giving up on trying to find the best way of making money through the internet.Its been one of the most stressful things in my life and from the looks of it im going to turn 25 with a full grown beard trying to figure this out.But like i said .I would love someone to reach out to me with a plan to make money with out any invested .Im most likely going to post this on a few sites to see what my results and see who can help me because i realize no one will do it for free nor is my family goin to help.

    Thank you.

    PS.I will be checking here every few hours to see who can work with me.

    Hi Nigel,

    Don't be discouraged. One thing you definitely have going for you is tenacity. [​IMG] You can stick to something until you get some results. That's really important if you want to make a real income online.

    As I see it, the problem you are facing is that you are trying to make "decent" money in ways that are more designed to make only small amounts, as you've discovered.

    Unfortunately, I DON'T have a week to tutor you, but even if I did, it takes longer than that. [​IMG] You don't necessarily need an actual person to take you by the hand, but you do need a genuine step by step process or blueprint to follow.

    I didn't have anyone to "mentor" me or train me when I began looking for a way to earn some money online. Like you I began with PTC's and survey's etc. I quickly realized that there was no way that the time and effort would be sustainable and worth my efforts in the long run.

    I finally ran across a free affiliate marketing ebook called the Affiliate Masters Course (which can be downloaded for free) that helped me tremendously in understanding how to actually build a business online that would genuinely make me money.

    After reading it, I realized that I could follow the steps they outlined and decided to use their sitebuilding program. That was the best mentor I could have had, in my opinion.

    I think that if you put all of your energies into building a website about a subject you really enjoy, you will find that by the time you are 25, you'll be enjoying much more than your $100-200 per week and you won't have to worry about the beard! [​IMG]

    Yes, there ARE a lot of scams online. They're usually the sites telling you that you'll make money fast and easy. When you realize that, it's a lot easier to wade through them to find the legitimate and genuine.

    Although I can't offer you a week of my time, if you will take the time to read the Affiliate Master's Course I mentioned, I WILL take the time to answer questions you may have as a result. Deal?

    Hi Nigel,

    I have mentioned steve weber in one of the thread. But I thought I will repeat one more time here. Just google "steve's classroom" for his free stuff. He is really a nice guy. Helpful and passionate about teaching beginners.

    Sign up for his newsletter and you will know what I mean.

    Hi Nigel,

    "Decent money" means something different to every person, so that's hard to say unequivocally. Also, every person chooses a different niche and works at a different pace. These variables have to be taken into consideration, too.

    Nevertheless, I can share with you how my own personal progress went. My first year expenses (2007) were $299 for the SBI package. I told myself if I could make that back by the end of the year I'd be happy. [​IMG]

    I made around $1500 the first year, and got a REAL education on how internet marketing works and the importance of proper site building.

    I've gone on to build a couple more sites and now I make over $1500 per month, and it is steadily climbing.

    So, for me, THAT is decent money and meets our needs in a wonderful way. I thank the Lord for letting me find SBI and giving me the perseverance to stick with it until I had some momentum going and could begin to see results.

    Too many people give up if they don't make "decent money" right away. When you realize that it is a process of building a foundation and then adding to it, you can make a long term commitment to your own success.

    I hope my small success will help to inspire you and encourage you to go for it. I had NO internet experience when I started 3 years ago, so I think just about anyone can do this if they follow instructions and work at it.

    The scammers know that there is an inexhaustable supply of people who want to make money online from home, that's why there are so many of them out there.
    Almost all the advice that people need is free or nearly so, if you look around. You have to put all your determination into seeking and recording good advice, then reading and analyising it. Forums are a great source of info but you have to be careful, as you have, no doubt, discovered.

    You want to achieve success instantly, this will be your down fall. A many of self-made thousanairs, millionairs, and billionairs achieve greatest by doing one thing. They Never Quit. You haven't failed unless you quit.

    Just understand that PTC is not going to generate you a bunch of money to live on particularly if you are the one doing the offer.

    Don't let fear of the word scam keep you from going forward with opportunities you see as viable. Understand that many cry scam because they didn't make any money, while other do.

    Learn offline and online marketing strategies for you business and you can achieve success. Also focus on building residual income, so by the time you are 25 you have a smile on your face.

    Consistency will win the race!

    Wow after reading this I feel alot better. I have just started some new oppurtunites. However, I also make a considerable amount through PTC. Nothing worth living off of but enough that I am able to use it to fill my car up with petrol every 2 weeks and have some left over for eBay stuff [​IMG]

    "Don't be discouraged. One thing you definitely have going for you is tenacity. You can stick to something until you get some results. That's really important if you want to make a real income online. "

    I totally agree, with happywife, I have with been with my online business like 1.5 years, and I just don't quit. I keep working and the income keep growing.

    You are going to fall for sure, but don't make that stop you.
