Does anyone know a tired and true resource for making money on the web? There are so many out there and they appear to be scams.

This is a real tough one. You are right about scams. Even if what you read seem like a scam, at best it is a teaser for something that has maybe 10% to do with the internet.

I'll give you an example, here is an ad I answered 4 years ago. "Love to use the Computer, then you can work from home". After a few other inquiries leading from one mystery(that's what I call it) to another, I finally learned that it was Herbalife. The computer part was the fact that you had a website.

I think the best person that I know to answer your question for sure would be Sher.

I am sorry Dotsie, I wish I had more info for you.

Cheers and Blessings,
Cathi

Seems nowadays all I can give you is how to spot a scam...instead of answering your question. However, what about writing? There are some legit writing contest out there where the prize is moola and the entry fee is zero dollars. Do a search on "no-fee contest" or "free writing contest" or such...

I'm giving mall mania a shot. If any of you shop onine, please do so through BWS. Have you visited the page yet? I get a teeny tiney kickback for purchases made through my site. We'll see how this works.

Please tell your friends who are addicted to online shopping to shop at Mall Mania at BWS. The link is on the home page at the top. Eventually it will be on every page including the forums.

Thanks. Sorry to plug it, but I'd like the site to start paying for itself.

Dotsie,
Don't be sorry! With a web site that generates as many hits as yours you should be putting all kinds of money making things on here! You've earned it. It's helpful for us too!

Dotsie, please don't be sorry. My husband funds my projects from his salary, and we are not rich by any means. The costs of a site, administration, etc. add up. I'm with you, though, just now learning how to make money via computer. I got some ideas from "Mom and her Money.' For example, I didn't know until this site that Google offers pay for ad placement. Yes, our sites need to start paying for themselves. Good luck, Lynn

Dotsie,
I don't know what all you have going, but have you tried the Associate program at Amazon? You can earn up to 10% referral fees and all you have to do is show books on a web page with a link to the Amazon page. Since so many of the people here (BWS) have books, maybe they would really support your marketplace connection to Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html/104-2009826-4403908?node=3435371

I'm not sure about now, but last year it was set up so that if a customer clicked into Amazon through your site, you would get a referral fee for EVERYTHING they ordered when they ordered your referral product. That could be lucrative I would think.
Just a thought.....especially since you have so much traffic which is the key to success as an affiliate.

Dotsie,
You have nothing to apologize for. Shopping is what people do, and if I am going to shop then I would rather support people I know.

I hope this makes sense!?!

Cheers,
Cathi

I always come to the forum home page to look something up on Google, I know that helps.

Thanks everyone for your ideas.

Dannye, I just added Amazon this year and it's helping a little bit. I'm hoping women will shop the great stores on my site. There are some good ones. I have overstock.com and I understand they now have a national campaign with television ads. I need to spend some time on that site. I'm always looking for a bargain!
