Before that I was a car mechanic and I thought internet can make me money quickly and easy. So I start searching “make money online” or “how to make money online” in Google search engine.Â I remember the 1st few opportunity I found are “Get paid to read email/Ads, “Get paid to surf”, “HYIP”and some ebook/ecourses. In that time, I don’t have credit card and not really willing to pay money to buy those $47 or $67 ebook/ecourses. So I decided to join those “free” stuff get paid to read email/Ads and surf internet. At the same time, I also invest some money in HYIP ( High Yield Investment Program ). Guees What? Get burned with HYIP and surf internet. They never pay money to me after I have surf about 150 hours ( take me about 30days ) . The AdminÂ never respond !!! The HYIP, they simply closed the website.Â After that, I’m start looking for other opportunity, and I found some website that selling their income system or ebook “how to make money online”.Â Because of I don’t have credit card so it’s hard to take out my hard earn money to cash into debit card to buy. 🙂 Just wait…….until I get the credit card. At that moment, I found another opportunity from Advertisement directory. “Typist” and “Ads Typist”, guess what? Scam opportunity, those people just selling the out-of-dated information to teach people how to get paid to survey. Most information like company contact, website are out-of-dated that cannot be reach.Â Or you have another option is selling the same opportunity to others just like them. That’s mean find other people become victim. 🙁 In that time, IÂ feel sad because make money online is hard and get scam all the time. Until I reach some website that teach you how to make money online and show you their “Big Check” $thousands in 7 days or 30 days!!!! I’m very excited when I saw their check and my confident come back. After I get my credit card and the 1st thing I do is buy the ebook and start read it quickly.Â What I have learned from the ebook are how to setup adword account and campaign. Then promote the author products. That’s it!! Such ebook cost me $47 just teach me setup adword account and setup campaign. FINISH. Most crazy thing is the author ask reader to follow his method to setup the adword campaign. Set the daily budget to $50 and bid all the single keyword he gave in ebook, those single keywords are expensive that some cost up to $2.Â And he said that “Guaranteed” get sale, So I just do it and trust what he say. After 2 day, I quickly close my campaign, nearly died. Make only 1 sale ( commission $22 ) and need to pay $50 daily budget for campaign. Then I start search other ebook that really can help me make money online with low start up cost. I have bought a lot of ebook in that time, and cost me a few hundred dollar. Almost crazy, owe my credit card too much. Then I stop buying any ebook and start thinking what I have done. I have bought how to start business online ebook, how to build list, how to blah blah…… All those “how to” ebook but I still losing money. Until today, I finally make a little fortune online. What I can say is make money online for long-term is not so easy. You must attend some course or buy some ebook to improve yourself time to time.Â There are a lot of thing to say about make money online and the main way to start IM business are : 1.
