    Probably not - it doesn't work that way. You need to look for the opportunity that suits YOU rather than 'an answer'.



    I would suggest you start at the beginning - read through the two threads below....you will be following someone who DOES this for a living successfully - and learn the steps he takes.

    Hello MSG!!!

    I am an Army wife and we are also retired. I can't imagine
    that you aren't living large off your retirement benefits. But
    I understand your desire to earn extra money since every-
    thing is so expensive these days. If you are looking for a
    magic method to make $100/day it is not likely to happen.
    Even if it were you would need to start and gradually work
    your way up to that over a few months or maybe even a
    couple of years. Right now I would recommend that you
    assess your skills (for example can you Wordpress?) and
    figure out how you can start earning money online. I also
    recommend that you stop wasting money on the various
    internet programs that promise to make you rich. Please
    take a couple of days to read a book or two on the topic
    of passive income and figure out how you can make that
    happen. I prefer affiliate marketing myself, but it is not for
    everyone. I started in 2004 and I have developed various
    skills like developing websites, writing content, building a
    domain portfolio, etc. I don't think it is something you can
    get into with no skills. I would be happy to provide you
    with some guidance. Let me know your thoughts.

      Thank you for your advice. What books would you recommend? I am not looking to get rich over night, but being an Army Sergeant has taught me never to quit or surrender. Any help you may offer will be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you again for your kindness!!!

        Thank you again for your kindness!!!

        You are welcome! Go on Amazon and do a title search for
        "passive income" with or without the quotes.

        https://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Sear...11&ref_=sv_b_1

        Then sort by price low to high. You will see some kindles
        that are free to 99ยข start with those. I don't want to get in
        trouble by telling you exact titles. You will know it when
        you see it. Just a word of caution - don't get more than a
        couple otherwise you might get overwhelmed. That is a
        major problem with learning internet marketing there is
        so much info it's easy to suffer from information overload.
        You could order paperbacks or hardcovers as well, but if
        you get a kindle you will be able to read it right away. Let
        me just warn you that some of the methods will seem like
        BS just disregard those. You will know when something
        makes sense and when it's nonsense. Some of them will
        tell you to invest in real estate, do AirBNB rentals and the
        like. Focus on ways to make money online, that is the way
        to go. If you want to know more about affiliate marketing,
        you can search for that topic as well, it's up to you. If you
        start slow and learn as you go you can achieve your goal
        to supplement your income. And there's lots of good info
        here on this forum, I have learned so much here over the
        years. Stay Safe!!!

    Have you considered being a virtual assistant? Are you good with excel/researching using the internet? Many folks right now are needing extra help with small projects and getting organized, so you could potentially earn some income that way.

    You cannot magically earn 100 dollars a day. Begin by blogging about a particular niche. As your blog would grow, you would get a few sponsors that could ask you to market their product, and then you can make money off of it.
    You could also do affiliate marketing but that would need a significant audience to bag it.

    Earning $100 a day is pretty easy and possible. It might sounds weird but I have been earning more than that daily. I'm a blogger, I monetize my blog with google Adsense, I run daily Facebook campaign to gain blog traffic with $20 to earn $100 to $150.

    Life is all about getting the right information but if you're looking for the right information from online ebooks seller then you're getting it wrong.

    You question got my attention and I might be of help. Thanks

    yes you should definitly stop buying any guru courses or shiny objects..
    it is highly recommended to NOT buy stuff from warriorplus, jvzoo and clickbank, especially not the newest 'push button traffic buyer software'...


    I've been there, bought tons of courses, watched those stupid review videos on youtube, they offered the beeeeest bonuses and at the end you realize it's not at all what you want or what you are searching for or what brings in the results..


    my recommendation is to find one good thing, one good program/system where you can see that a lot of people are having success with.
    Then stick to it, close all the distractions and make it happen.
    Good luck and never give up!

    Are you a warroom member? If yes, look up Tom Addmas' beginner's guide. He sells a full course, but the guide he has in the warroom, a pdf thing, is good enough to get you started and it is free. It is a bit dated (peerfly closed doors since he wrote it but maxbounty is still around...If memory serves, he was suggesting people use both... It is about making money with pay-per-lead without spending a lot of money till you actually earn money.

    Yes. Absolutely there are good and crap digital information products. If you search you will find, if you ask good questions you will get better answers.


    I purchased several products and learned so much valuable information. Dont give up. Buy cheap courses and you will have proper knowledge before you launch a course.

    I remember that I made a small fortune when I first started online marketing in the first 3 months I started. After those first 3 months, for like the next two years, I pretty much made NOTHING! I got obsessed with shiny object syndrome, chasing the next big thing.

    I over-analyzed each and every opportunity put in front of me and found any reason to prove the person presenting the opportunity was some kind of fraud or crook. Guess what, I always found a reason not to act and the cycle of frustration grew and grew. Constant self-sabotage and self-inflicted psychological torture!

    Fortunately, I finally figured things out. For me, sustainable success only materialized when I decided to stop my wandering eye and focus on one thing and ONE THING ONLY until I was successful at it. Find that one thing you know some people are achieving massive success at (CPA Marketing or Affiliate Marketing or Offline Lead Generation etc) and just stick through what you decide focus on and block everything else out. They'll be frauds and fakers in whatever niche you pick but you need to weed them out. The more involved you are in the niche, the easier it will be to spot the frauds!

    The first step to making money consistently is to build an email list. I would recommend you join this site called my lead gen secret. It will give you 100 emails a day. You should promote the system itself to your list. Give that a try and from one veteran to another...thank you for your service.

    I can recommend some very good Youtube channels that helped me..

    Dunno if I can post them here?

    There is a lot of good free information out there now. I have done well following a free step by step course, starting from scratch.

    There are a lot of clickbait YouTube vids, offering just a load of rubbish. But, there are some YouTubers giving amazing value too. You just have to keep reading and learning everyday and taking action.

    You don't have to spend a fortune in the process - but nothing is handed on a plate without you putting the work in (not saying that is what is being suggested at all). The more mistakes you make, the more you learn.

    Make money online is not easy
    If you plan to build a website and with a small budget, you have to do all the SEO on your own.


    You have to go deep into details.
    For example, re-register the expired domains and then redirect it to your new website for seo.

    There are several. But good to have one that fits your comfort zone to focus on everyday.

    Some are Video marketing, Affiliate marketing, Instagram marketing, FB on and on make no mistake some people are getting crazy paid right now. COVID or not.

    Even some warriors here have products/services you can just hammer every day and make a decent wage.

    Dear Sir

    Firstly whilst not an American, I would like to thank you for your service. I believe in keeping things simple. The one method for me that has stood the test of time is having a list and really connecting with that list. building a relationship and no hard sell.

    I have been online for a decade and its only in the last 4 years I have seen consistent results. Nothing wrong with other online methods, but I speak only from experience

    I am taking the time to write this because I see you responding, Gerd. Many people post and then run away, never to return.

    You need a consistent process, just like you had in the army. Be in proper uniform, process. Line up for chow, process. Everything in the field manual, process.

    The thing about making money online, though, is that there is NO "one size fits all", do these steps and you're guaranteed to make sales, process.

    The first point to get into your head is this: online is just a platform. It is not its own ecosystem.

    When newspapers were the main platform, the same things happened. Someone put an ad in there. The newspaper got paid to run the ad. But the person posting? No, they had to wait and find out whether it would draw customers or not.

    The internet is like the newspaper. You can put stuff on it, but there's no guarantee anyone will read it or care.

    So the first factor, and there are only two factors of importance here, you must figure out is Traffic.

    Traffic is eyeballs, people who will see your offer. Now your offer does not have to be a "go for the jugular" sales letter to make them buy right now. It could be an offer for them to opt into (join) a mailing list. It could be to watch a video. It could be to have a call with you. Depends on the value of your offer and the preferences of the typical buyer of that thing.

    For a quart of milk, we don't need to have a personal phone conversation. Everyone knows what that is, and the transaction is simple.

    But for a 6-month coaching program to help the client be more confident, selling for $6000... now that's not transactional. We have to have a conversation about that. Is this a fit? Why would you buy? How will you pay? and so on.

    That second step there is Conversion.

    Conversion is what you do to help turn some of the Traffic into buyers. It could be a sales letter on a web page. It could be a video sales letter. It could be a phone call with a salesperson.

    So I hope you are starting to see you are a long way from making money online...but perhaps you are starting to see the nature of the problem.

    You must pick a niche.

    This is an area of work. Will you help people connect with repair truck operators when their car tires go flat or their batteries die, for $15/lead? Will you present Customer Relationship Management software to business owners with 5-15-person sales teams for $200/seat/month? Will you sell a dozen candied apples for $12.95?

    YOU have to pick this niche. No one can do it for you. Asking, "What's working?" is how you stay a newbie...and I have seen some people here stay newbies for 10 years. No exaggeration.

    And then YOU have to pick the Traffic generation method.

    Every time you begin, you start over. I have a decade plus of experience, and recently tried a new opt-in for a training program, using it on Twitter and Facebook. Despite everything I know, I have gotten a grand total of FIVE organic opt-ins over the last few weeks. That's from about 30 organic views. So %-wise it's OK, but what the heck? 30 views? Something is wrong with my Traffic sources...and I know this and am working on fixing it.

    This is the sort of thing you will have to do, if you want to be successful making money online.

    Then you will have to pick the Conversion method. How will you help some of those visitors turn into buyers?

    Note that you cannot simply look at what other people are doing and copy them.

    You lack the resources and experience they do. They can do things you cannot--like shove $400 worth of cash into the front of their funnel to make sure the Traffic side is taken care of...even though the front end product--the thing you see--is only $97.

    How do they do it? Because they a) have cash reserves, and b) have a back end $1997 offer that some of those $97 front end buyers convert on.

    I realize everything I just said probably made you cross your eyes. But that is the language of what you profess you want to get into.

    Keep learning, and learn to ask more specific questions. That is encouragement, not admonishment. The better questions you ask, the better people here can help you. Right now you've asked a very open-ended, loose question that can't really be answered.
