The One Big Secret to Making Money on The Internet

Comments (20)

So there I was. Minding my own business. Reading my email.
Dreaming of my internet millions that email after email
promised me. All of this money without any work by me. And
in just a few short weeks time.

Did I say promised me?

Did I say millions?

Did I say no work?

Did I say millions in just a few weeks time?

Yeah, I'm afraid I did.

Do you think I got excited about how my life was going to
change? Get real. I mean come on. The more I read the more
I was jumping up and down. Dude, I'm excited!

Here I was about to be rolling in the moola--big-time. And
all I had to do was buy this special, secret, never before
revealed information.

Wow! Everything I ever dreamed of was just sitting there
waiting for me. I couldn't wait to get my hot little hands
on that - better than owning a McDonalds franchise - secret

Oh Yeah. I'm excited. But here's the rest of the story...

All this kind of stuff is crap. Pure Crapola. Because
Sugar, There ain't no secrets.

You'll never receive money by doing nothing. And nobody can
make you a promise of riches. No one has any idea what
you're capable of doing. (That probably includes yourself)

Please don't waste your money or your time on info that
promises you wealth for doing nothing.

And don't waste your money or your time on chasing secrets.
There just ain't none.

But you can make money on the internet. Lots of money. But
there's no damn secrets involved!

I'm sick and tired of internet novices getting reamed by the
no-conscience jokers that promote this junk. It's one of my
peeves. Like call waiting. Man, I dislike call waiting.

If I'm put on hold for call waiting I simply hang up. And I
don't care who I'm talking to. It could be George Bush or a
potential client. Screw em. Let em get back to me. Or
not. My time is too valuable for that.

I want you to value your time, as well. By the way. You
don't have to change who you are to make money. You don't
have to pretend you're someone you're not. Life's too short
for that.

And I don't want you to get taken by the internet marketing
rascals. Before you throw away your good money on something
you're not certain of -- call or email me.

I'll help you out. If I can't point you straight, odds are
very good that I know who can.

So what's the one big secret to making money on the

That there are no secrets. Making money on the internet is
pretty much like making money off the internet.

Target a market. Find out their problems. Find a solution
to those problems. Make your target market aware of your
solution. Work with the ones who raise their hands.

Follow a system. Track everything you do. Watch your cash
flow. Give more value than you take. Follow up. Re-sell
your buyers. Become a problem solver.

Above all. Be yourself. Enjoy what you're doing. Never
compromise your morals to make a business deal. Pick your
associations wisely.

To sum this up... If your loved ones wouldn't like what
you're thinking of doing, just say no.

Step 1

Write effectively for This one may seem obvious, but take a closer look at the previous sentence - there's an emphasis on 'effectively.' If you make the effort to learn from the eHow experiences of experts you'll save yourself a tremendous amount of time and dramatically increase your earnings.
Step 2

Design t-shirts. CafePress is a company that will allow you to submit t-shirt designs (funny phrases, pictures, etc.) at no cost to you and if a t-shirt design of yours sells you'll receive a portion of that sale. A perfect no overhead business for creative people. (A link to this website is provided in the Resources Section.)
Step 3

Blog about something that interests you. This is completely free and can be both a work at home revenue stream and a fun creative outlet or way to keep in touch with friends.

Setting up a blog is extremely easy today. If you can manage an email account (or an account) then you can manage a Blogger (Google's blog service) account. Once your blog is up and running apply for Google AdSense to monetize your blog without having to sell a product.
Step 4

Sell tickets. Reselling tickets for sporting events and concerts can be a fun and profitable business that you can run out of your house.

Thanks to websites like and eBay you can now sell tickets for events all over the country. Visit to find out in advance when popular events are taking place and also find valuable presale passwords for free.
Step 5

Sell books. is a great place to sell used books that you already have at your house, find at a yard sale, or find any number of other ways.

When I was a college student I found that professors had tremendous amounts of unused textbooks that were free for the taking. Redistributing books online is a great way to share knowledge in a way that's most affordable for the purchaser and profitable for the seller.
Step 6

Sell your photos. Visit Big Stock Photo where you submit photos (or artwork) for other people to buy/download.

When your pictures are purchased you split a portion of the sale with Big Stock Photo. You can make between 50 cents and $3.00 per download.

Why is my 15 year old schoolmate so rich? Hi,

I have a 15 year old Japanese Schoolmate who is kind of "private". He never tells things about his money or so, but owns an IT-company.

Now he has bought a 15-story building just for his company, and has lots of employees.
He goes to school everyday, how can he be this rich?

I once asked him about how I could make money. He answered "Making money in internet is the world's easiest thing to do. There are copyright licenses that lets people use their content commercially for free, and so many social sharing applications. This is my secret."

Like what? What in the world is he trying to tell me? Is he a criminal or a genius or what?



Admin 14.01.2013. 17:28

Maybe he had a rich dad/grandad/any relative in fact ... Who recently passed away , leaving their entire estate to him , with which he invested in an IT company and a big building

What is the best economical post workout supplement i can take? I am currently working out to get more definition in my muscles not to get to big. I am currently 150 benching 205 and would like to increase that by Novemeber to 225minimum. What is the best Proteing supplement or post workout supplement available? Notice i am college student so it has to be economical. I am currently taking Jack3d pre workout and super pro bpi protein post. Any suggestions???


Admin 26.09.2011. 04:52

Pre and post workout supplements are all scams invented by supplement makers to help sell more crap to clueless young people who believe advertising, gym gossip, etc.

Read by answer here -->;_ylt=AtGdwn5cqfesP6O1LkavjSjty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20110821092640AA3hq12

The best health experts in the world (the US National Institute of Health), the people US doctors listen to, advise you should never take a supplement without the recommendation of a health care professional because all supplements are potentially hazardous to your health as supplements do not have to be tested. The result is many supplements are contaminated, worthless, have false advertising or label claims, and may contain dangerous or worthless chemicals or substances.

Here's an example of one scam site ( which pretends to be a bodybuilding website but is really just a front for selling supplements as evidenced by this list of over 60 dangerous supplement products they were forced to recall and take off the market --> . More here --> is a good example why you should never buy supplements whether you want to burn fat, gain weight, build muscle, or are just hoping to improve your health. The scammers who sell junk supplements do so by using advertising, celebrity endorsements, fake testimonials, phony interviews and news reports, bogus reviews, and every other technique possible to convince you their product is safe and effective. They have saturated the internet with thousands of web sites so no matter what you search for, you'll only find glowing reviews of their products at the top of the search results. And, the result of this effort has led an entire generation of young people to believe in fat burners, diet pills, mass gainers, pre and post workout supplements and other junk which not only do we not need but which are ineffective, a waste of money, and possibly even hazardous. The voice of truth is relatively quite compared to the $billions spent on supplement advertising, so before you buy any supplements, inform yourself with the links below.

Scammers target the young, gullible, and naive demographic because they know they can sway them with greater ease than the older, wiser buying public. But, there are some easy questions you can answer using simple logic to be able to qualify a scammer as suspect. Here are some examples.

? If there was an easy way to do hard things like burn fat or build muscle, why doesn't the whole world know about it? How could that be kept secret when that's what so many people desire?

? If there was a supplement that helped people shed pounds, why doesn't your doctor recommend it? If you're overweight, why doesn't your physician just give you the pill or recommend the acai or HCG diet or whatever? Why are physicians always telling the same story about obesity and how to cope with it?

? If there were supplements that could help burn fat or build muscle, why haven't the huge and powerful pharmaceutical companies taken them over? Why let the scammers like GNC and Weider continue to make $millions off the public when they have a much greater capacity for providing such products?

? Why do people pay big bucks to have liposuction or stomach stapling if supplements could really help them to lose fat?

There is only one good answer to all of these questions. Most of the supplements which are supposed to make you lose fat, add muscle, grow taller, kill appetite, gain weight, bulk up, get ripped, etc. just don't work. It's really that simple.

If you just can't resist buying a supplement, at the very least make sure it bears the trademark logo and name of one of the following independent testing laboratories.
? USP (US Pharmacopoeia)
? NSF (NSF International)
Such testing does not guarantee effectiveness or safety but it's better than nothing. The best advice remains: Don't use supplements.

Good luck and good health!!

"Wanted Something That Is
Easy And 100% Automated
That's right, for me to live the life I want and make the money I dreamed of, I needed a business that could be automated with fancy computer programs. Remember that from my list of Do Wants?

Nobody's ever done this. If they have, they're not offering it to people like you and I.

Matt and I started working on some initial plans for a few things that would make us a lot of money. And guess what, now we ARE making a lot of money because of the systems and programs we built. I had the ideas and Matt had the know-how.

We always joked around about how what we were doing was like creating our very own Frankenstein in our secret laboratory. Only this monster spit out cash and didn't terrorize and villagers ;-)

That was the beginning of this private club we call the
Maverick Money Makers.

Within three months, I was able to quit all 3 of the jobs I was working at the time.

I now had an easy work at home job, working less than 4 hours a day, and making more money in a week than I used to earn per month working 14 hour days for months on end.

I didn't have a boss, worked as little or as much as I wanted, paid off all of my debt, and watched my life completely turn around in less than 6 months.

Fast forward to today and...

I'm Now A Self-Made Internet Millionaire
Working From The Comfort Of My Own Home

I live in my dream home.

I can buy all of the things (and expensive toys) that I want.

I buy my wife jewelry and diamonds for ""Just Because"" gifts.

I do what I want, when I want.

I take vacations worldwide and see things most people dream about.

I am able to give my family the life I've always wanted them to have.

I'm able to make large donations to local and national charities.

I am able to make an endless amount of income on the internet.

I have no financial worries and I am completely secure and happy.

I finally have the time to help others succeed just like I have online.

Has anyone been on a Landmark Forum course and thinks it is a waste of money? I went to a intro night and then they desperately tried to getme to sign up, saying it would sort out all my problems. Call me gullible but what's the big secret. It's just another self-help weekend costing 300 odd?

Like anything else it is a business, one which does not advertise but works on word of mouth. There is nothing "new" there, they just market an effective system and offer you personal coaching which is far more effective than any kind of "counseling" I have ever heard of. One weekend of your put into practice a different way of thinking-what is the big deal?!
(I think it is cheaper in US)
I have taken all the seminars and basics but I am not a "cult" member or landmark guru.. as the internet would have you believe! It has helped me and my family and I enjoy being around people who see things positively. I work with really negative people so I welcome the association with people who don't make excuses and complain all the time. They emphasize integrity and keeping your word, which most people struggle with. My teens took the basic seminar and there is nothing available like it in schools.All the folks I have met there are educated and responsible kinds of people who want to leave their past problems behind.
Like anything else, there are always pushy people who give an organization a bad rap.

What's the quickest way to increase credit report score.? Any secrets the credit people don't want you to know?

Any good books on the subject?

Any good websites to consult?

George R

Admin 13.07.2008. 18:31

The FICO (credit score) formula is not a secret and there is no need to hire an expert or buy an expensive e-book in order to discover how to raise credit scores.

There are five areas that go to make up your score, and they are weighted differently - some areas are more important than others and have a bigger effect on hurting or improving your FICO score:

1. Payment History = 35%

2. Amounts Owed = 30%

3. Length of Credit History = 15%

4. New Credit = 10%

5. Types of Credit Used = 10%

So, the 10 best things you can do for raising credit scores are:


1. Pay on time. At 35%, payment history is the largest area of concern to lenders. The only thing that will damage your score more than late payment is total non-payment.

2. Did I mention pay on time?


3. Ideally keep your debt to credit ratio to 30% or less. This means only using 30% of your available credit per card.For example, if you have a card with a credit limit of $1,000, keep the balance at $300 or less.

4. This holds true per individual card but also for your debt to credit ratio overall. This means you need to pay down debt - not just move debt around. This is a frequently misunderstood aspect of how to raise credit scores. You will save money by doing the 0% APR balance transfer dance, but you will not improve your FICO score.


5. A longer average account age will boost your score. This means that opening new accounts can lower your score because a new account will bring down the average age.

6. Point 5 above has a rider - if you have poor credit you need to re-establish your credit and rebuild your credit. This means taking a hit in the short term by applying for as much new credit as you can get so that in the long term your score will improve.


7. Don't constantly apply for new credit. If you are shopping around for credit, try to squeeze the applications into a short time frame. FICO scores distinguish between a search for a single loan and a search for many new credit lines, in part by the length of time over which inquiries occur. If you are just starting out building your credit, a lot of inquiries will lower your score more than someone with a longer history.

8. Do request a copy of yor credit report regularly. Requesting a copy of your own credit report does NOT damage your credit score. This is an Internet myth. Requesting your own credit report or credit score from an authorized provider does not set off alarm bells the way that multiple requests sometimes does.


9. Mix it up. A combination of revolving credit such as credit cards and installment payments like a car loan is ideal.

10. Avoid store cards such as Target, Home Depot and so on. These count as lines of credit as opposed to revolving credit like regular credit cards. Store cards are not given much respect by credit scorers. In the long run, the convenience or in-store discounts will not make up for being refused a VISA card or a prime mortgage rate later on down the track.

How can we get more cars that use water only as a fuel and reduce our "addiction to oil?"? Big business, politicians, and the media have kept water as a fuel secret for over 40 years because it just makes good business sense for them to make all the money they can. Let my people go in vehicles that use water as a fuel!
In 1965, I saw a 1/4 to 1/2 scale Plexiglas model of a vehicle at the US Army Transportation School that used water and a battery as its total source of fuel. It was very expensive and was touted as being our next vehicle for all services.


Admin 06.07.2006. 13:52

There have been silly rumors about this sort of thing for many years. You can find multiple references to this on the Internet. Water is basically burnt hydrogen. You can't burn it again unless you remove the oxygen by electrolysis, and that is expensive.
