    How Did You Make Your First Real Money Online?

    I am going to start this thread so we can all learn from each other. This post will be very beneficial to those looking to make their first dollar online.

    I remember mine so many years ago. It still looks like yesterday.

    I had just started building my first List, having learned that "The Money is in the List"

    There was this new company / service online that needed Signups (people to sign up free for their service). They were paying $5 per Lead. I sent this to my then List of less than 300 people which I got from a newspaper classified ad.

    Next I know people were signing up since it was free and my account was being credited. I kept mailing my list over a period of 1-2 weeks. In the end, I got 33 leads from my list.

    That was over $150! I was hooked. That was how I made my first real money online. I say my first real money because prior to that, I had earned $6 from some newbie programs. Hahaaha.

    So how did you earn your first real money online?

    Feel free to share as we all learn from each other's experience. I believe someone will learn something from my own experience above. One is that List building has always been there and will continue to be. Why? Cos it works!

    @buddymantra, How do you mean you wrote a Guest Article for your Blog? How were you, who paid you to write on your own Blog? Also was this really the first money you made online?

    Kindly explain more, I am curious.

    The first money I earned by writing an article on how to install a Canon printer on Windows 7. It was 2009. I remember the article paid $ 20.

    Facebook groups aren’t just for virtual garage sales and vague industry connections

    I made my first dollar online by promoting Clickbank affiliate products through my blog. I used to have a blog on PTC websites back then and I used to get a lot of visitors to the blog. I promoted a clickbank product that helped people how to get ptc referrals. I started getting lots of sales.

    Facebook Groups are still effective, but you need to know how to them now to avoid being accused of spam.

    Freelancing as a programmer on Upwork. Started about 4 years ago, have been doing it on and off since then.

    Also created an Android app with Admob ads. Earned about $50 total, so not a really big success there.

    The first money I earned on the Internet was the translation of texts. I know French very well, so I got a part-time job.

    Affiliate marketing. I used a method called the Reddit-Twitter Master Method. Spammed the hell out of Reddit.

    Affiliate marketing was for me back in the day before Facebook / Twitter / Youtube etc changed the way marketing strategies were done through social media then came SEO and google Algorithm changes, to this day have mostly development clients either for web development work or automation development.

    I worked on Fiverr.com and then I earned 40$ from it. Then I made a blog and it generated me around 250$

    Don't you try affiliate marketing on your blog?

    My man!
    You are one of the few - or maybe one of the few who admit that
    I tried it too but by the time i found that, it wasn't worth my time - had a way better wage as a freelancer.

    Made my first few dollars online with commenting though
    34 ways to make money online - no schemes, no tricks, just sweat.
