    If you have a college degree, tons of experience and a defined niche for your expertise, then you can make that pretty easily by doing consulting work or finding a company that relies on people with your knowledge and experience. It will take years and years to get to that point, though. It's taken me about 5 years to get to that point, though I'm not going to disclose what I make.

    Also, don't try to get $500/day from one income source. It would be devastating if you were to lose that income source with no backup.

    So your steps would be:

    1) Decide what you want to do with your life
    2) Go to college
    3) Start working for a company dirt cheap to get experience, as an intern or junior level developer (think $100/day)
    4) Get extremely good at what you do. Education does not stop with college.
    5) Define a specific industry as your niche and learn everything you can about how that industry does/can/should use the internet, web technologies and any other kind of technology. Develop a "vision" for information systems within that industry.
    6) Network with people in your industry. Talk with them, share ideas, develop relationships.
    7) Set yourself up as a technology expert in that industry.
    8) Begin looking for companies in the industry to consult for. Charge fees based on the value you provide, not based on your time. If you can save them money or make them more money, then you can charge very nice fees and they won't mind paying as long as you GET RESULTS!
    9) Make $500+/day.

    Sound better? More realistic, maybe?

    That $500/day isn't profit though. Maybe if you work for $100+/hour and have very little in the way of expenses you could clear $500/day in profit, but even then you'd have to have more than a full day's workload every day.

    I suppose the question really lies with the original poster: How do you want to achieve your $500/day goal? Do you want to work for a company with a salaried job, run your own design shop, freelance, or build sites to make money with either through sales, advertising or other ways? There are lots of options and many times no single option will get you where you want to be. You may have to pursue multiple streams of revenue.

    Easy, just buy my eBook 'Easy ways to $500 per day on the Internet' which is cunningly priced at just $595 per copy. What an investment.

    Joking apart, it really depends how you want to achieve your goal figure. To be honest $500 per day net profit after tax as a web designer / internet consultant should be easy to achieve - even as a one man shop - if you market yourself in the right way, build a niche for yourself and think of some creative ways to package the solutions you provide.

    To be honest if you are only working for $100 per hour gross as an internet specialist, you should retrain as a plumber and throw the computer away, but thats probably a comment for a different thread really

    I think we have to get the answer to davidjmedlock's question how do you want to achieve this aim however, to give you a real answer. My gut feeling is that you want an easy option with no work because you have somewhere, somehow heard that the internet is paved with gold, no effort required just register a domain and wait for the cheques to roll in.

    If thats the case maybe I had better go and write that eBook.

    Sure, agreed. Just didn't see the poster asking how to make $500.00 'profit' per day.

    Everyone has a funny answer.....

    Trying to be serious....

    Find a topic you are interested in and make a content site about it. You should aim to have atleast 100 pages of content to start out with. Learn SEO and other promotion techniques. Eventually put ads on this site.

    Once you feel you can do no more with the site, start a 2nd site.

    Rinse, Repeat.

    No. You only get money from visitors to your site. Money doesn't just appear for you. You can write lots of articles, put adsense on it, and you'll make money when viewers read your site and click the ads. (Clicking your own ads will get you banned from AdSense, in case you were going to ask.)

    definitely having your own site will make you good money. when you have site about topic you're expert at, more opportunities arise. not only profit made from site directly...

    if you're not great expert at something particular... build some general forum... www.serbiancafe.com is site mostly visited by serbs living abroad and it makes **** loads of money.

    I think that the best advice here is to read what Aspen said. I beleive that i am going to take that advice and go with it.

    Also there is not really any gaurenteed way to make $500, what will work for someone will not necasarily work for you. If it does great but if not you are going to be disappointed. I think that it comes down to work towards specific goals yourself and finding the best way to make that money come in suited to what you do and the way you do it.

    If your income is tied to your labor you will never be truly wealthy.

    A web developer or consultant, no matter how much they charge, is earning based on their labor and with only 24 hours in a day they will be limited on how much they can make.

    Myself, as a business owner, I earn regardless of labor. I go on vacation and earn, I go to the movies and earn. My websites work for me 24/7/365.

    Even if you don't own a website, ownership of some sort of business is the first step to wealth.

    Yes i agree with that Aspen, just as long as your business is working for you and you are not working for the business because then you are in the same situation.

    If i may ask one question Aspen, how do your find reliable sources of valuable content for your sites which are not copyright?

    I routinely make over $500 in a day in web design. Just in billable hours if I bill 6 hours I've made that. Billing 6 hours a day is hard with all the other things that go into it (billing, marketing, initial consultations, bookkeeping, etc.) but I do it once or twice a week.

    Back to the original poster's question though... if your attitude is "show me how to make $500 a day" then you need to just go get a job. Don't take this the wrong way, but these forums aren't for "get rich quick" types. We are HARD working professionals and it takes knowledge, skill, and a lot of hard work and long hours to make a living anywhere (even on the Internet).

    Netting $15000 per month takes some major dedication. The only solid advice I can give on the matter with a question this general is to

    STUDY.

    I'm not necessarily talking school here. I'm talking sticking your nose in every little tidbit of information there is. Read like a MOTHER FUDGER. I'm 21, and my bookshelves match that of most 30-year olds. Talk to other people in business. Hang around with them. Analyze commercials. Analyze business models. Read Kotler. Read Levinson. Read Tom Peters. This is SO crucial. This step cannot be skipped. You absolutely must be one of the top 1% most curious people in the world.

    I am actully doing a lot of that myself Mattias, and i am at the same age as you. I read as much as i can, and spend a lot of time analyising businesses, i can walk into just about any business and pick up no less then 3 things they could change to reduce costs or do better business. I just have to work out a way to apply this into somthing that can generate a revenue stream for me.

    It will eventually hit you. Seriously. If you keep at what you are doing right now - i.e. being curious, analytical and interested, the right plan will one day hit you like a bolt from a clear sky. It sounds romatical, but that's the way the human mind works.

    Sometimes i think i may be a little to over anaylitical i mean i seriously have a lot of trouble committing to one course of action and i think i always try and find the bad sides and just end up finding to many.

    Another problem might be that i start reading to many books at a time and never seem to end up finishing any. I have about five books sitting with bookmarks in fairly close to the start maybe i should be looking at finishing them rather then reading forums so much.

    1. Create a busy website.
    2. Stick AdSense on it.
