Just like always, except now you can pay pal $50 bucks instantly.
It's modern day, electronic, Snake Oil.

There ain't no free lunch! Even the " High Dollar Escorts" where I live that make 6 figures, have to work hard, organize, market, work out, study fashion, money, finance, gaming, business, style, and protocol to be able to adjust to any class situation when needed on a moments notice.

Very few people in history fall "ass Backwards" into money.

perfect point on the "high dollar escorts". lazy people will probably look at them and say..."well all they have to do is lay there and open up...."

its a simple formula to have a better chance out there...work hard and smart. even that isnt a guarantee.

I think we've stumbled onto the answer to this question...

The quickest way to make big fast money on the internet is to con it away from ignorant lazy people.

Damn Morals.... I could be a millionaire right now.

The con men that make money at this stuff know what they are doing and how the internet works. Thats why they get away with it.

The original poster asked how to make money online and can anybody recommend a "program". Here is a brief answer to that question.

Yes, you can make money online. Some people make a lot of money online. A couple of people may have gotten lucky in the early days of the internet and made a bundle quickly, but most if not all people that make money online these days have been at it a while and are well educated in the internet.

For the most part you make money online by either selling products or advertising. To do this you need a web site that has a lot of traffic, usually. You get traffic by either using search engine optimization techniques (SEO) or advertising yourself. The first one is free. If you know what you are doing, you can get good traffic within 6 months to one year. Advertising costs money. A lot of people abandon advertising such as Google AdWords because they loose money. Some people make money through advertising.

On the web your site will need to sell or attract visitors. This means that you need to know how to build a web site. There are some web sites out there that sell and are poorly built and make money, but that is not the norm. You can pay people to build a web site for you, but most people I know who have done this without knowing a fair amount about the basics of web design have lost money or ended up having their site redesigned.

So, You want to make money...

1. Learn SEO

2. Reverse engineer sites that make money

3. Learn how to write a web site.

4. Study the different marketing models of profitable web sites.

You can outsource some of these things, but if you don't know how they are done, you won't know how to hire someone to do them for you and you will likely loose money.

I know someone who was making about $30k per year from his web site after one year and starting from scratch. I don't know anyone who made money on the web without a good working knowledge of the stuff I mentioned above and more.

Thanks
It is possible to make money online but it takes time to find out where the real money is. You should hit the booming travel industry today. It’s a 7 Trillion Dollar Travel Industry (you've probably heard people spend more time planning their yearly vacations than they do their retirement). I found an interesting site www.thousand-dollar-commissions.com It has a very good compensation package.
Hope this helps.

Good job, Bill. Now we can wait to see if we can attract more Spam from those who just post without reading the thread and even realizing how old it is. Maybe you should have chosen something even older.

Any extremely lucrative business has a mark up of roughly 200-400%. That is the way America works. But you need to show VALUE with that product. Making money in this industry is about conveying value. Value in the products, system to make sales , and the compensation plan. I haven't had a JOB in 5 years and never will because I get what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. Just keep these things in mine. And you usually get what you pay for.

NO business that costs less than a couple thousand dollars to start is worth it. Like a carpenter needs tools in his tool belt you will need tools such as systems, advertising, and product. If you dont have that to do then you should wait until you have the capital to properly start a business. Thankfully I have all that with Global Resorts Network.
