Hi,

You mean a job?

Get a job, get money.
Learn skills, earn more money.
Find a problem, build a solution business funded by the money you`ve made.
Invest money from the business.

You are asking about step 4, while you are at step 0 it seems.

Yes, there is. It is probably going to be an online job of sorts where you are going to freelance for someone else.

Notwithstanding that, you need SOME money. Do you have enough money to pay your bills? Or are you trying to fit that into this as well?

I don't think you have your head right on this. Building a legitimate business that grows and has enough customers to support you and your team should be the goal. Not just some cop out "how do I make money online."

Are you currently generating income via the internet?

Hi,

Create a freelance account and sell whatever service you can. Writing, illustration, design, web development. None of those require any money up front.

Create YouTube videos with a cell phone, build an audience and start running ads, accepting subscriptions, doing live streams with super chat donations and set up a patreon account for more donations. Eventually grow large enough that companies want to sponsor you with money and products all for free.

Find junk around your house and sell it on ebay. Costs nothing.

Sell your art, music or other hobby creations on etsy or ebay. Costs nothing.

Create a blog using a free blog site and grow it to hundreds of thousands of viewers through consistent publishing. Use adsense to monetize. Write an ebook in Google Docs, turn it into a PDF, and sell it to you readers. Record some videos on your phone, package them into a course and sell that on your website too.

Record videos with your phone about something you know and upload to Udemy. Publish your Udemy course for sale. Costs nothing if you have a phone or web cam that also records audio.

Just a few ideas off the top of my head.

Unfortunately, none of these ideas are going to make you money overnight. I mean, they will, but not the kind of money that's going to do much for you. They all take time. A lot of time for most people. Months. Maybe years. Maybe decades.

Then you should probably get a job first and learn to take care of yourself.

Generating income "Via the internet?" LOL!

No, I generate income by exchanging value for money. "Internet" is just a vehicle for this.

I had this idea in mind.

1) Use tinder/POF (any dating platform) to recruit women.

2) Create OnlyFans account.

3) Generate income

- Women have inherent beauty (value)
- Men are willing to hand over ££ in exchange
- Average women has far greater SMV (sexual market value) than myself.

Is this a fastlane business model (theoretically)?

Business is simple: Add value. Get paid.

What are you trying to ask?

As @Kak said, I think you’re focused on HOW people add value.

WHAT people do and WHY is more important than HOW.


Do you need money to make sales online?

No.

I’ve been selling landing pages for years without a landing page to sell them from. (This tickles me.)

I’ve been a Google Ads consultant for over 10 years without ever having run an ad for myself. I don’t even have a website, just a domain that points to my LinkedIn profile! (This tickles me even more.)

I’ve even sold a course by putting videos up on a free Thinkific subdomain and letting forum members know it’s available. Sure, I should have paid $29 for that marketplace ad except MJ politely refunded me.

Why did MJ not take my money even when I gave it to him? Because of all the time and effort I put into the forum.

Notice that my time and effort has a value.

You say you *only* have time? Heck, that’s your most valuable asset so get out there and get paid exchanging some of it providing value to someone.

That's a great idea!

So... let's see... a bunch of girls are making bank on OnlyFans, but wait... what about you? Where are you in that equation?

Well... OnlyFans is already the middleman, so again, no need for you. How would you even get the girls to pay you? Why would they? Because real pimps solve this problem with their backhand... but also they actually add some value (believe it or not): they protect the girls from psychos and customers who try to walk away without paying. So it's sort of a mutually beneficial partnership, in theory at least.

But no need for that online. The girls don't need you. You are not adding value. You're still chasing the cat. And you're trying to take someone else's tuna.

I think you should read the books one more time. ;)

You're right. Much needed reality check.

Here is what you can do to make money fast. Then keep this up until you have enough money to start the business you want to start.

Find something in your house that is worth $7...... put it on Facebook Market Place for $5 and go down to $2 if needed. Now you have atleast $2 to save. Find something else in your house worth $7...... put it on Facebook Market Place for $5 and go down to $2 if needed. Now you have atleast $2 to save. Now you have $4 total. You can either do that again and again or go buy something for $4 and sell it for atleast $6. If you have dollar stores in your area, they are perfect for this. Continue to do this until you have money to buy higher priced items.

Or, look on your local Craigslist type of board or Facebook for free items to resell. The bigger the better. If you want to know more about this, send me a message.

These are ways to make money TODAY! Not next week or next month.... TODAY! Within a year you could easily have $10,000.00 - $20,000.00. Or, if you like doing this type of work, build it to a 6 figure business within a year or 2. Not really that hard to do if you like what you are doing. You can hire people to do certain jobs and the sky is the limit.

Go back up in this thread and read the posts from all these REALLY valuable members. If you only took 2 minutes to check who Kak, Minivanman or Andy Black are, you wouldn't be doubting or skipping their words.

Your e-pimp idea would have some potential if only you could bring value to the girls. Are you a web marketing kingpin decent at web marketing? Learn about it, then revisit your idea... and soon PornHub will be second to your OnlyFans agency.


You can learn pretty much any skill online. You only need time. Now focus and stop wasting it.

Hi,

Is it possible to make money with no money?

I have no capital to invest.
Ok You're based in London, I'm in Dublin. There are LOADS of Startup Courses. Incubators and Accelerators out there! Go on Meetup.com as well!

Step 1.) Write down 3-5 things that you hate or cause you stress, no matter how silly! You'll probably have a winning idea there... one of mine was our M50 Orbital Motorway.. and now I'm making an app for it, and for the M25 in London....

You already have the ideas... you just dont know it yet!

You know who are the real pimps? The founders of OnlyFans. To me, everyone who even uses Onlyfans is a cuck. Even if it's for money purposes.

But that's just my opinion. If you want to dominate, build the next Onlyfans, and compete directly with them.

This is not easy, but at least you are going to get something out of it, instead of looking for easy solutions which will give you nothing.

This onlyfans thing has f*cked up society even more than before. I'm quite sure girls will do anything to create an "USP" and be noticed in a crowd of who knows how many girls. That's simple supply and demand.

Everyone else is just money-chasing and will never get anything out of it.

There's an entire chapter on Unscripted about hitchhikers and system creators (edit: It's on Chapter 30 of TMF, The Commandment of Control). If you want to make money, create a system, don't join one.

You say you don't have money, but you don't need money. You need effort, motivation, and energy as others have said. If you knew how to code, you could do anything unimaginable.

You can learn how to code without spending money. Maybe 50 bucks for courses online, but that's it. You don't need to spend anything else in monetary value.

It all comes down to effort. Everything else is excuses. How can I say that? Experience. I was money chasing too not a long time ago.

Get your shoes on and take a basket with you.
Walk through a forrest and collect everything, which you can take in your hand without destroying it.
Than go home and sell it on ebay for tinkering.
Its amazing that people buy that!The value of not having to go themselves is real!
