Unfortunately, there is no good way for the average person to make money on line. Almost all money making sites on the web are scams. Under no circumstances should you give any money making site your credit card number. Never sign up for any "free" service that is free for one month and then you have to cancel it to avoid credit card charges. You will find it very hard to cancel. The phone number they give you to cancel may always be busy, so you can't cancel. They will often charge your credit card even after you think you have cancelled. Never give a survey site your bank account number or personal information.
Many sites claim you can make money by filling out surveys or clicking on ads or some other silly method. They ***** you around answering some surveys and then try to push the "free" offers that you have to charge to your credit card. One common trick they play is that they let you make 5-10 dollars easily. But their web site rules say you have to earn 40 dollars before they send you a check. To make the extra money you have to participate in "free" offers. I have played around on some of these sites and it always come down to them wanting to get your credit card number in the end. Don't let them.
You will find many people on this site that claim they made a lot of money at such-and-such a website. They are usually liars trying to make money. For instance they will say: "Go to cashcrap,com/q2347." The "q2347" is a signal to the cashcrap site that you are being referred to them by "q2347." If they sucker money out of you, "q2347" gets a kickback. These coded signals can be hidden by different methods in the link. Other people will refer you to their own private website or blog for the purpose of trying to get money off you. The bad spelling and grammar is usually a good tip off of this.
Note that I say there is no good way for the AVERAGE person to make money on the internet. If you are not average, and have some special skill, you can make money. If you are good at selling things, try selling things on E-bay. If you are good at writing, set up a blog or other site and sell ads. If you are good at computer programming, try setting up a site that uses your skills. Since I don't know what special skills you have, I have a hard time advising you on this.
However, if you go to a site that claims ANYBODY can make money, it is usually a scam
No, you don't have to do that, try and find virtual assistant, online researcher, payed surveys, email marketing and things like these, you can find them online very easy
Hope it helps
One piece of advice I can give you is: Never borrow money to start a business. 86% of businesses fail in the first two years. If you can't afford to save the money to start with cash, you can't afford to pay money back WHEN the business fails.
I say 'when', not because I think that you will personally fail, but because statistics are against you. YOU should be thinking 'when the business fails', so that you will be prepared for the worst case scenario. If you are not prepared to fail, then you are not prepared to start.
You can buy an old van for $1,000. Go to every auction, even though you're not buying. You'll get to know the faces and bidding strategies of the regulars, the average prices, etc. Know the business inside and out before you invest a dime. Instead of buying the van, you could re-rent the same unit and sell out of it. Take stuff home as you put it up for auction.
The best advice I can give is to go to. He is a financial counselor who has a radio show on 260+ stations, nationwide. Find a station near you and listen to his show. He has been on 60 Min. and Oprah, and Dateline. You may not like to hear what he has to say, but his plan works. This is not one of those buy-real-estate-with-no-money-down schemes. It's old fashoned wisdom.
He explains how to accomplish things without EVER borrowing money. There is no magic spell and Ed McMahon is not coming to your door. It just takes discipline and hard work.
A very wise man once said-
"If the dream is big enough, the facts don't count!"
(BTW- this man is a multi-bazillionaire!! Don't know the numbers, but you should see this guy's house... er, houses!)
My husband and I are in a similar situation- crappy credit... You have a job- start nibbling at the debts you have. I know- it may take a while, but start working at it. If it takes a 2nd or 3rd job to be able to afford it, do it!! That's what my hubby and I are doing.
Feel free to contact me for more info....
It's great to have dreams. You do not have to give up on your dreams. Life will beat your dreams out of you soon enough.
