    I make forums and sell those. I basically just go around advertising and getting the place active. Once active I sell them. I don't make money from ads, or affiliates. Forum making is a lot more work, but for me it's easier then anything else.

    I write content for other people. Doesn't pay a lot because I suck at marketing myself.

    Your giving him the wrong information for a newbie. Just do things the old fashion way. Find a quality keyword (microniche if you're low on funds), create a Wordpress site, have an affiliate product, and drive traffic to your site.
    To drive traffic, you can write articles, do social bookmarking, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), buy a domain name, get hosting, and post on forums such as these.
    Or, you could try Google Adwords if you have a lot of money. PPC (Pay Per Click) is obviously the fastest way to get traffic on the web.
    For more detailed information, check out this year's Thirty Day Challenge.

    This may sound old but really here it is:

    There is no quick way to make money, you need to find what works best for you and do that for example:
    If you write 20 articles on the new sports car at 500 words and article and then get no traffic to that site and make no affiliate sales becuase your useless at marketing just sell the articles at $5 each or sell sites instead.

    I make money buying/selling Websites/links (infact i do it so well people pay me commision to sell links for them) , i use to do content writing for people on here back in the day made $300 a month but i really hate writting lol)

    This is my sincere advice for making money online:

    * Don't spend money on every new wiz bang money guide or ebook - jumping around
    * Spend alot of time just reading and learning from forums like dp, if u dont know what something means then do a google search and learn it. That topic could become a new emerging trend or niche for a website etc.
    * Be dedicated, open minded and put the time in but dont be disheartend if you fail or things dont go as you had planned - its never as easy as what people claim so keep at it
    * You need to find something that works for you and your skills and own lifestyle
    * The amount of success you have in anything will be timing and a bit of luck
    * Income before outcome- start generating a little bit of income by offering your services or skills just to get money coming it. Then when you have saved a bit start looking to spend some on money making.
    * Trial and use your money making ideas on a small scale before committing too many funds and resources
    * Dont expect to be rich or make money quickly as it rarely happens - it takes time and work and some failure first
    * Be cautious and dont be overly trusting of people - there lots of people around that will say or do anything to get money from you than disapear, slowly let them earn your trust..........
    * Most peole startout making money by starting a blog or two, offering their services or earning money from cpa affiliate commissions which can be harder depending on your country of origin.
    * There is often heaps of free ebooks and guides on topics before you need to spend money on them. Sometimes by taking a little part of an idea from one guide can be combined with others to form an overall idea that can make money. All the answers are NOT going to be served up to you on a gold plater :)

    Good luck friend - i have learnt my lessions the hard way in my time at DP

    If I were you I'd stay away from Forex unless you really understand it and are prepared to lose everything.

    If you come up with an on-line product or service you have to ask yourself "would I pay money for this [product or service]". If the answer is no then chances are no one else would pay money for it either.

    Everything needs a reality check from time to time.

    I make money off four different websites a video website and a car forum site. I also make money off treasuretrooper which is a site that pays you to complete surveys read my blog in my signature to find out more. The last way I make money is off neobux which i highley recommend to anyone because i can make $7 a day spending literally 5 minutes a day clicking ads read my blog in my signature to find out more on that site.

    I just got started with online money making. I have a blog and forum I am working on, using adsense and CPA offers to try to make some money. So far it has been pretty tough. I just keep reading and try to learn as much as possible, one day it will all click and then the money will start to flow :D

    I think the blogs and forms are the best way to make money online.
    The Reason is that it gets index fast than any other site the only thing is needed is that u have to promote your blog or forum. After that u can earn money buy simply selling links or by google adds too.

    Offer a product or service that people actually want. Even better: offer something they need. I know it's a generic answer, but you have to find a niche for yourself and run with it. And have some patience. It took me several attempts (and several years) before I found something that worked.
