    FYI I will just flat out give what makes me $$ .

    FOCUS

    F - Find a project
    O - Occupy yourself with nothing else until the project is complete
    C - Concentrate on the tasks that make up this single project
    U - Understand that nothing is more important than this project
    S - Succeed

    Now stop being lazy and work smart, hit the gym once in a while and mingle with friends to have a positive attitude.

    Making money on the internet requires either a lot of time, or a lot of money initailly. It takes a lot longer to earn a substantial amount of money on the interneet if you start off with nothing. But of course, with a little hard work it's possible.

    I think every kind of business needs a lot of time and work.

    This is a steam train approach - and while I agree, you must be mindful to ensure balance in your life.

    I generally agree, but I'll trump you with the cardinal rule of the Internet: Content is king.

    I was actually doing fairly good financially years ago, before I began studying web design. I was cranking out garishly amateurish websites with Microsoft's infamous FrontPage program. But I'm chiefly a writer, and I produced lots of content (at least some of it pretty good) .

    Unfortunately, my websites were more or less shot down from a couple different directions, after which I decided to study web design. I upgraded to Dreamweaver and began studying CSS, PHP, MySQL, etc. But it's all so overwhelming, I've scarcely had time to write.

    I've now made an even bigger upgrade, abandoning my PC for a Mac, and things are really coming together. But whether I can really make up for all that lost time and beat the competition remains to be seen.

    And before anyone trumps me, yes, I know content isn't really king. The people who become gazillionaires generally have products or services to sell and/or they have lots of money or connections to begin with.

    But, for us normal people, content remains king.

    P.S. I second all the comments about hard work, though my original project - which earned a significant amount of money - was largely a part-time hobby.

    There is no algorithm out there that will make you money, the only way to make money is through time, effort, and knowledge. Especially knowledge, if you are good at what you do you can make money by talking about yourself

    Anything promising an easy strategy to make & or $1000 a day is surely a scam. There is no easy way around it, there's work involved.

    Talking

    Michael Dell started out at 19 in his dorm at university with just a few thousand dollars, now, 15 years later he is running Dell which is worth $60,000,000,000.

    There are many many different ways to make money, but you always have to put a certain amount of work into it, and take a certain amount of risk.

    I know an accountant who made something (i cant say what) in his shed. A little black box, it cost him time and less than 100 to make, but it can save a certain company over 10,000,000 yearly. He is hoping to sell it to them for around 5,000,000. That just goes to show, that there are no stict rules on how to make money, but if somone says something like "im rich and happy, and it was easy" followed by "you can be rich like me, its so easy" followed by "fill in this form and I will make you rich".... be very wary. If your going to make money, its going to be off your own back, people dont go round looking for people to make rich.

    i get sick of all these stupid schemes about 3000/week with 4 hours.... yes it is possible, but the work required to get the that point is considerable.

    In general, as long as you are working for someone, you are never really going to get ahead financially. The owner of the company is the one profiting.

    I do not 100% agree

    I do believe it's going to be more and more difficult to make money as an independant as users are less and less newbies, as advertising is going to be more and more expensive and as big players will play more and more a key role, leaving (maybe) some niches to small players

    Most of us get annoyed with these so-called "get rich quick" schemes, e-books, and related sites. So, why do Sitepoint permit them to be sold as "premium" sites in their marketplace section?

    I've posed this question in the following thread:

    http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=539335

    I'm keen to hear what others think... Some of you may be interested!

    Getting to $5k a month and above wasn't easy. It's doable though, and I don't work full time at it (almost full time though - I'd say about 30 hours a week, flexible hours).

    I do think that anyone with a good knowledge of English and good writing skills can at least make a decent living working online from home. It's a great opportunity, yet so few seem to go ahead with it.

    Yea but that's not going to stop him or her from making money though. We all share/run the internet which is one of the best things about it so your customers/clients have options on who or where they want to go. Making $5k a week isn't going to be easy, it's going to take a lot of hard work and may take many years especially if you're just jumping into the online business.

    I myself work independant running http://www.invisionblue.com and I do pretty good financially wise, but I've also been running websites since 1998. It all boils down to hard work, experience, a little luck and good relationships with your customers/clients.

    Lightbulb Subscriptions + Hard Work = Profit

    In my opinion, the most lucrative money maker on the Internet is subscription based services or products.

    Think about how many millions of people use the Internet on a daily basis. Some studies suggest the Internet is becoming more popular than TV. Now think about 1000 people - that doesn't sound like very many people compared to the millions using the internet. Why? Because it's not.

    Now, think about 1000 x $30 a month. All you need to do, is create a subscription-based website that appeals to a very, very small percentage of the Internet population. There is a very "long tail" of people out there who are part of very targeted niches. Find a niche, provide a service, and there you go.

    My partners and I spent about 8 months developing a subscription based site in our spare time. Now, we have over 1000 people all paying $35 a month (plus additional add-ons). And the best part? We work maybe 10-30 hours a week.

    Bottom line, it takes hard work and knowledge. If you don't have knowledge, add more hard work. In the end, however, it can be VERY profitable.

    By the way, luck has absolutely nothing to do with anything. "Luck" is a scapegoat which lazy people blame their failures on.

    telos... i couldn't agree more with you about your definition of luck. As far as subscription based websites go- you're absolutely right. I'm actually building one at the moment as well. Subscription based websites are what I call a true "snowball". You get last months sales minus 5%(unsubscribe rate) plus this months sales plus next months sales in an ever increasing snowball of sales. I think you should change the subject of your post to:

    Subscriptions + Hard Work = Ever Increasing Profit

    There are plenty of opportunities to make money on the internet however, it takes hard work, knowledge, and dedication before you can be successful.

    Yes it's possible

    Yes it's definitely possible to make a lot of money on the Internet. Compare it to starting a new cafe. There is a lot of work that goes into starting a new cafe and then there is a lot of ongoing work to manage it.

    An Internet business is generally easier to start and run, and has more residual income. However a lot of people approach it as if they can just put 20 hours in and suddenly make a lot of money. Not likely. But if you put the same effort in as you would in starting a retail business like a cafe, I'm sure you can be successful and with better residual income, and less effort after you have got it started (but maybe the same effort in the beginning).

    The best thing is though that you can still be earning good money whilst traveling or taking a break for a month ... but you can't do that with a cafe or a normal business.

    The interesting thing is, I know several people (some of my business partners even) who have done the "get rich quick" business and actually make money.

    One acquaintance made $10k in their first profitable week. Of course, it took investment (about $5k), and again, hard work for 2 months before it paid off. You may think "well, if I don't get paid for those 2 months of work, and I don't have a guarantee, than it is too risky". If that is you, get used to working a job, since you'll never make it as a business owner of any kind.

    Little Risk = Little Return
    Big Risk may = Big Return

    But you have to ask yourself some questions:
    First, what is my risk tolerance?
    Second, how long am I willing to wait?
    Third, how hard am I willing to work?

    One of the problems with our society, is "instant gratification". In other words, we want it now. In many cases, getting it now means pay more for it later. (for example, interest paid on it, or the price dropping in 2 months, etc.)

    For people who want it all now, get a job - you are guaranteed wages. For people who are willing to wait, are willing to invest time and/or money, and are willing to take chances, there is a lot of money to be made.

    There is a difference between a traditional get-rick-quick and a legitimate home-business opportunity. A get rick quick scheme usually works by selling the opportunity to sell the opportunity. A legit bizopp will have a product, service, or other value-added item with it. However, legit bizopps can make you rich, sometimes even quick, but not without investment and risk.

    It is no different than an affiliate or reseller program (though usually more lucrative).

    Also, when throwing out the term "pyramid", consider that Corporations are the best entities in the world when it comes to utilizing a pyramid business structure.

    Anyway, just something to think about.

    Succeeding in any business is usually never easy/simple. It requires good idea(s), sound business plan, hard work, little luck and more. Internet offers many ways to make good money, but it's never as easy as the ads you see online promise.
