    Lee McIntyre said in his ebook "500 Dollars Only: Hype Free Steps to Your First $ 500" said: "It seems very much like the majority of the products out there are promising you millions before you've earned thousands. They're promising you thousands before you earned hundreds. The majority of the books in the market place don't teach you how to take the next small step forward. Instead they urge you to reach for the finish line, and so it's no surprise that so many newbies stumble and fall before they've even taken their first tentative steps towards profit."

    Can you please share your own ideas how complete newbies with limited budget can earn their first $ 500 online?

    Thanks for sharing.

    there are a few systems out there that you can start up on a small budget. Spider web marketing system is one where you just have to buy a domain name and thats it. about $10. at the same time though it takes just as much energy to market that business for $2-10 commissions as it does for something like Carbon COpy Pro which is what I'm with.

    When I started with CCPro it cost about $1700 to get started but now there is an amazing program they jsut came out with July 22nd 2008 which offers a start up package where you only need about $500 in start up and you can makes hundreds on each sale.

    I would have liked to ease in with this program first to test the water but I am glad that I at least made the leap at all. noe my commissions run from $800-12k so I am super happy with where I'm at.

    Baby steps in my advice. You have to learn the rope first before you can make lots of money so find a program that will hold your hand to a point, offer you a giving sponsor who will share their secrets to success and see what programs you can start with and mor eimportantly, what programs you can GROW into. Growth is key to always making more money.

    Hope this helps. PM me if you have any more Qs on this or other stuff

    In my personal experience, I just used "general" affiliate techniques.
    I learned all of that stuff here on this forum and later on (the majority) in Wealthy Affiliate program. At first, for about 3 months I had no sales just pure expenses, then things started to flow. Now, 9 months later I'm making somewhere around $300/month and it's always rising... slowly.

    I wouldn't say for my self that I've had no startup budget, but I could use free techniques also to achieve the same results, except that it would take I bit more time I guess.

    Without gratuitous promotion, I would just have to say to find a product with an affiliate program and start working on learning how to promote it online. The sales will come.

    For the past three months, I've consistently made between $400 and $500 a month promoting one particular product and the thing is I really haven't been doing anything! I worked on promoting the product the first of the year and then when summer came, I totally slacked off. In spite of my "break" the money kept coming in. Now I'm gettin' back at it because I want MORE!!!

    I think that a lot of people are using affiliate marketing to make their money. You can make a decent amount from this but it takes work. Also, a lot of people are doing advertising campaigns in which you have to spend money to make money. That is a very effective way to do it but if you do have a limited budget just look at www.bummarketingmethod.com. This website will give you some good ideas on how to get your affiliate stuff out there for cheap.

    That is probably true under two conditions...

    1. You know how to advertise without losing your shirt.

    2. You have the money to invest in advertising.

    I don't think the majority of visitors to this forum are looking for a 'free lunch.' I think they are genuinely looking for something legitimate that they can really sink their teeth into. The trouble for most people is getting over their well placed skepticism.

    There are plenty of places out there that 'claim' to be able to set you up and help you build a successful business if you are willing to make a huge investment. Far too many have trusted them and lost their investment, never reaching the 'profit' stage.

    There will always be people willing and ready to prey upon others for their own gain, not really caring about the losses they leave in their wake.

    People want to know that if they invest what little they do have in some 'program' that it truly is all that it claims to be.

    Sure, there are those who don't want to do any work at all and just make money, but most of the folks coming here seem to be willing to put in the time and effort needed if they just knew exactly WHAT and HOW they should go about it.

    Usually, people who have the big bucks to spend in advertising, etc., don't spend their time frequenting work at home forums. [​IMG] At least that is my intuitive feeling.

    you're kidding, aren't you?

    if not, how would you make good money with adsense....? and why would you need to put down 500 bucks?

    no, you're wrong. we're not looking for a free lunch. instead, we want to get to the point of making something after some effort. and what we want, is rather to pay that $500 start-up fee (just an example!) after we made that $500 worth sales, or whatever from the affiliate marketing system, that we worked hard by putting time and effort on promoting those stuff.

    so, again, we are so fade up with paying for bunch of books all of them leading you to nothing, but going in circles.

    again, keep in mind: We are very hard working and we're willing to invest, but not into lies and down systems.

    I think the first way to go is to be open minded yet careful about the numerous opportunities out there.

    Access critically and only venture into opportunities that make realistic sense. Dont sign up for a program that promises that you"ll make $500 within the next few hours. If it were true, they would be no one working in McDonalds or in the corporate world.

    Yet, opportunities that offer insights about about how to make some extra bucks as an affiliate are worth looking into. Look for the ones with the lower investment and remember, with hard work there is only one way to succeed as an affiliate and thats getting the word out!

    Goodluck

    I am determined to succeed. This I believe is what ultimately will lead me to success.
    So I've decided to focus on just one method, stick with, test and refine it and then repeat it over.

    It could take someone a day to make $500's or take someone else a year to make even half or less that.

    What differentiates the 2 is the Level of Commitment and the Experience. Experience can be gained from practice and a clearly guided path to success via various training material.

    Commitment unfortunately (or fortunately for some) cannot be taught and must come from within.

    Make wise and informed choices.

    Cheers for now.

    That's what I'm talking about. We all need to be Determined to SUCCEED, although we'll hit our heads against the walls.

    YES! [​IMG] This is my man.

    I was a complete newbie about four months ago, but now I am starting to make money with affiliate programs. I started with about $200.

    This is a satisfying way to make money online because you can help people make purchasing decisions based on your own experience with a product.

    When I started I did not even know how to make a web site, but I bought several books and really applied myself. Now I have just about made my first $500 in profit. However I did make the following big mistakes.

    My biggest mistake when I started was that I promoted a product that had way too much competition. If you decide to try affiliate marketing I would suggest doing a lot of research on your competition first. Choose a product to promote that you are an expert on so that your promotion pages can offer quality information. Don't just promote something because it looks like it is selling online, especially if you have very little knowledge about it.

    There is no easy way to make money online. Making your first $500 will most likely be a long process, but it could be the most satisfying $500 you ever make.

    Good Luck!

    Welcome on board bbeard. All of us were newbies, and maybe some of us are still. Yet, we all together will make a great job for all our prospective customers to be satisfied with our services. This is what I personally call: Great Customer Service!

    And yes, let's not look for our pockets to be filled out with money, but for their satisfaction to gradually (if possible, directly) increase for their best!!

    As much as I hate ebay I would have to say thats the easiest place to start. Most everyone easily has $500.00 worth of stuff around there house they have no use for any more. This profit should be turned around and invested into your next business venture.
