I want to share a personal incident: the first time when I fell for a scam; it was my last time too . It was long time ago; maybe when I was 15 years old. I have been always seeking opportunities to learn and earn from the net. My parents were very skeptical about this since they dont use the net that often.
They never bothered what i did online since they thought either i was watching a movie or playing games which we all usually begin with. It was tough to believe that someone could earn a living from the net. Internet home based jobs were the hottest thing online since then and I was excited to give it a try.
I chose one to begin with; the company stated that they would send me a CD with details on how to make good sum online and ALAS! I just bought that stuff :p. I received the disc several weeks later; the disc had loads of email list and some cheap affiliate junks and there were tutorials about how you can make money from “Spamming”. Yes! You heard it right! So this is what I learnt at 15, “How to make money from Spamming :p”! Of course I didn’t do that since I knew about ethics and it wasnt my food so I gave up on this and moved on to something else. But, this time I was more professional. I invested my time on researching and finding out more stuff about online businesses and how everything works.
Believe me when I say this, if you can use google as a friend, there is nothing that you wont find online . I will post a guide soon enough about google tricks and tweaks which will come in handy.
There is no ending to gaining knowledge. I am still a learner and I love educating myself and the community. Scams have become so intense these days that some of them can even trick the experts. Always be careful when you are dealing with money, act according to your senses and be safe!
I am working on several guides /tutorials which I will post shortly. They will include several legitimate ways of making money online, how to succeed with blogs, elite marketing strategies, twitter and much more.
Feel free to comment, retweet, dig and share my post. Till then, take it easy!
