    Hey guys, im a student in the United Kingdom, and im really interested in trying to atleast do something with the internet. I spend most of my time on the internet, so i decided to delve into this online marketing routine.

    Ive been reading through alot of posts, and theres talks about ProfitLance, and other programs, but Profit Lance seems to be the one that everyone talks about.

    Let me cut myself there and get straight to the point. I find it hard for me to get physical work, which means im constantly low on money, i just simply wanted to be pointed in the right direction of where to begin! I know there is a whole process that i will have to go through, but most of the them ask consumers to pay, and i simply cannot afford most, if not all of them.

    Is there anything anyone can suggest that helps, and specifically targets people like me who are low on income but are motivated to put an extra effort in.

    Thanks for your time [​IMG].

    Welcome Aedous!

    So you are ready to take the plunge and learn about internet marketing? [​IMG]

    Internet Marketing is actually designed for people with more time than money, I always think, as it definitely takes time, lots of time, to get through the learning curve, but once you have your brain wrapped around it all, the possibilities are endless!

    In a nutshell - you can find products to promote at places like Commission Junction, Clickbank (my favorite [​IMG], ShareASale, etc... (these places are all free to register at) and then go build blogs, Squidoo lenses, hubpages, and any other free places..... where you can write about, blog about and promote your products...

    What programs like Profit Lance, One Week Marketing, Blogging to the Bank, Wealthy Affiliate etc will help you with is learn HOW to do the internet marketing part... some of them may stress to market THEIR products somewhat, but you can use any of the methods learned thru the various programs to market anything you want to.

    Hope that helps a little.[​IMG]

    Hi Aedous,

    It's great to get started while you are young building an online business. If you take it one step at a time and stick with it, you'll have something really worthwhile in a few years. Imagine that!

    There are free ebooks and resources to help you learn online marketing without having to pay for a "program." It's a good idea to read through a few of them and try to get as much of a basic understanding as you can before you jump in and start 'doing.'

    As MM5 said, there are even free methods of advertising once you understand the best way of doing it, too, if you are unable to come up with any start up money to purchase your own domain, hosting, or site building package.

    It may take you a lot longer to go that route, but it can be done with patience and persistence. Just be sure to educate yourself first so that you know what you are doing and why and you don't end up spinning your wheels and wasting your time.

    How about trying affiliate marketing? It is free
    But you will need to know the internet marketing basis and how to promote the products in order to earn some money.

    Basically, you need to do affiliate marketing, which is basically explained in the above posts. I personally would recommend purchasing a membership in an affiliate marketing program e.g. my online income system, as they will guide you through the process.

    Good Luck!!!!

    I have many things to share with you. Today interent is not just a tool to communicate but it is a great place to earn money. Famous ways of earning money are giving below. You can choose from it. I am mentioning my expertise in each column.

    1) Google Adsense - http://google.com/adsense
    If you have a website with a descent amount of traffic, Google Adsense is one of the excellent way to earn money. This works on paid per click basis. You put the adsense javascript in your website and you get ads from google server. You will be earning if any of your visitor clicks the ad. Cost may vary from $0.01 to $15 per click.

    My Experience: I am earning from adsense. I made around $700 a month from it, but now I am making around $100 a month because of some personal stuffs. I am trying to come back again.

    2) Affiliate programs:
    This works on a commission per sale basis. You promote some person's product. If you make a sale or a lead (action) you get commissions. Commission may vary from $1 to $1000 or even more depending on the product.

    Following are the two famous affiliate programs

    2.1) CJ - Commission junction - http://cj.com
    Here you will find lot of products to select and sell. Products may be like hosting package or a hard core product like shoes and accessories.

    2.2) CB - Click Bank - http://clickbank.com
    The products promoted by click bank are digital products (Those that doen't need any shipping) like ebooks , memberships to websites. You get commisison upto 75%. Yes, it is true. If you get a sale for $100 you may get commission upto $75.

    There are many other affiliate programs but the above two are very famous. Some other famous affiliate programs are linkshare, share a sale.

    My Experience: I made $20 in cj and went into loss in CB. Basically I have not shown any interest in affiliate programs. I have plans for the future but as of now I am not touching this areas.

    3) PTC:
    This is very simple to earn money. Just you could spend 15 minutes a day and you can make over $500 easily a month. The concept goes here. You click an ad and wait for a pre-specified time and you get the amount that is pledged for that ad. Rates vary from $0.01 to $5 per ad. Mostly you will be watching it for a time of 30 second.

    My Experience:
    I am earning $500 from this programs. Though scams are a big problem here, I have my own way of accomploshing it and I am successfully doing this for over 6 months.

    Aedous, I hope I have answered a bit and cleared your initial questions. There are many more way of earning money like domain trading and other stuffs. There may be other ways that I am not aware of (This community will help you do so).

    If you need any help, I would be glad to take it forward.

    Hi Aedous (Cool name, I like it),

    The first thing on anyone's to do list should be to identify and learn about the fundamentals of online marketing aka making money online.

    To begin your educational journey I suggest the free 30 Day Challenge here:


    After that you can continue reading and interacting on this forum as well as on other free sites for a while.

    Then, if you feel that you'd like to pay for a program that is very inexpensive and only requires a one time payment, you might consider Honest Riches 3.0 aka 2009 by Holly Mann here as it's only a one time payment of $37 last I checked:


    Continue interacting on this forum throughout.

    Good luck,

    Hello Adeous,
    Welcome to the forum. You made a wise decision to browse around the forum to see what everyone is talking about.

    There are many choices out there for anyone to make money online. This thread has definitely put some light on the subject for you. I do agree with Newbie Shield, you need to have a basic knowledge of how to make money online.

    You can receive this training through a program or e-books whichever you do best at. The only way to make it work is through practice of the techniques and trail and error.

    All programs operate differently, so pick out some ones you like that has some guidance to, do research on the product/program, and pick which one clicks with you the best.

    Making money online does take a lot of your time and a little money at first. You started in the right area due to your situation. If you have any questions about anything, you can find the answers here.
    Have fun![​IMG]

    Like others in the forum, I definately recommend internet marketing. However, there is a learning curve, and it can be very challenging at times - you will likely have some "I want to pull my hair out" moments, but it can be profitable in the long run. Having said that, I don't think it is something you should try and "depend" on until you have a lot of experience, so if you can, I would recommend trying to find a regular job, and learn internet marketing in your spare time.

    yeah, thats it. There will be times when you wont know what the heck youre doing, and you want to quit because youre not making any money. But you will learn what works for you, after a while.

    I wish you the best.

    Internet marketing my friend. It has been the best thing for me and has helped me achieve financial freedom. Of course with everything there is a learning curve but you can find so many free tips all over the net.

    YouTube - simple searches can reveal so much about what you need to do. Squidoo lenses, Twitter Tweets, and Facebook. Using free sites like these can earn you money. Use free affiliate marketing sites to promote products. Paydotcom and clickbank are among the popular ones. The beginning is hard but once you grasp the concept and put it to work you will start to see income.

    I have worked with many in the internet marketing field and honestly the ones who succeed are the ones who are willing to learn. Pretend its a school course and you have an exam at the end of the year.

    There are many opportunities to "get the ball rolling" for FREE out there! If it is money you are troubled with, look for those free opportunities to get you started in the right direction. With any new business, you want to re-invest some of that money to grow bigger and stronger! Referral sites are a great way to get started making some money!

    There are many programs with very low cost or even totally FREE to get started online. However, you will still need to cover for some tools you will need to be successful online (eg. autoresponder). The idea here is to make as much money as you can with the low cost/no cost program and use the money wisely to re-invest in another business that will be more profitable or you can also re-invest a portion of that money toward development and growth of your current business (eg. paid advertising).
    I hope this helps.
