    We see too many threads about "How do I make money online"... so many that one can get dizzy and toss their lunch.

    What so many fail to do is to look at some of the threads that are not "How to make money" threads but rather threads talking about interesting things on the computer TV box we sit in front of all too long.

    Case in point the below thread posted by @Trepanated:

    https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/g...bsite-to-create-your-own-hoax-stories.756726/

    That thread gave me cause to build a little FB cash cow for a couple of years and many others did the same. He posted it because it looked like a fun site, and it was, and maybe still is.

    A few of us saw that as an opportunity to monetize by putting our links on there and sharing that site on social media.

    It was not a money making thread and he had no intention on turning it into one but it gave great ideas to a handful of guys and those guys shared their ideas and that spawned yet another generation of revenue streams for others.

    I know some of the money guys earned from the initial thread shared by @Trepanated and without naming them I'll give you some legitimate numbers.

    1) Guy made over 400K using FB from the idea.
    2) Guy made enough to buy a new car paid for in cash from the ideas generated from that thread.
    3) Guy made 100K from just one campaign (I know he had a handful of campaigns but he only told me about 1 and I know that guy makes bank in general) in a year's time.
    4) Guy paid off his home from the ideas generated from that thread and also took a bunch of money and invested it into a site selling hoverboards and was making 1K a day from that for a while.
    5) Guy made 85K from ideas from that thread.

    These are real numbers from real people as I know each guy; one actually posted a pic of his car here on BHW.

    All from a hoax site.

    A Freaking Hoax Site!

    So what can we learn from this?

    That just because the thread that is opened is not about making money you can still take the info and turn it into money.

    What are the guys selling in the marketplace?

    Can you learn from them and build sites and rank them using the kinds of services they offer?

    You don't have to buy the service but if you see what is being offered and you have time and energy on your hands you can usually recreate at least the lion's share of what they are offering. Not only that you can take that information and add to it with your own ideas for SEO to rank sites.

    How about the Want To buy threads?

    What value can you see there as a person who wants to make bank in IM?

    Well, if you are seeing people wanting to buy XYZ fairly often consider what he or she would be doing with the end product. Clearly they are not looking to buy XYZ to put on their mantle over their fireplace.

    There is value in figuring the end use for the things/services people want to buy.

    Although the money making section is chock full of ideas and shares, that is not the only place on BHW where you can pick up ideas to bank.

    Someone is hiring a freelancer to get leads for XYZ industry.

    Why?

    Figure the why and make that a target for you and you can also use your noggin to twist it for other industries.

    Guy is looking for a person to post on various forums that are in the monkey industry. Why would he do that except he knows how to monetize users on a forum about monkeys.

    By no means am I saying rip off your fellow BHW community member.

    I'm saying see what others are buying, selling, wanting done and do for fun, and turn those ideas into yours and generate revenue from that.

    I shared a while back that looking at some of the old way I generated money and updating them turned into decent cash. One Jr Exec in particular hit me up a few days later and told me he took that idea and turned it into some decent cash with very little effort.

    Stop working in the industry with blinders on and expand your thought processes and idea base.

    Take the forum threads and posts as a whole and turn those into a more complete revenue stream for yourselves.

    Very well said. I always read all the threads (Even it’s not what i am looking for) but for the sake of info.

    Knowledge is the power, you have to get the knowledge and experiences from the other different people and turn into it your own MoNey making idea.

    That's true. We also need to find a way to look at the backside of a black hole.

    Thank you for this. This mentality is useful for life in general and not just earning money online. Methods come and go (Facebook could easily shut down, Google could be overtaken) but the ability to adapt shall always keep one soaring.

    TL;DR: Think outside the box.

    Definitely worth reading everything though because this is it.

    Treasure is not always found in the most obvious places. Typically its found just beneath it if you know where to look.

    All information is valuable when you know what to do with it.

    That is something I love from IM. There is not a clear way to do the things (in this case, make money). In several offline works you can do your work (earn money) in just a single way: do it, eat; don't do it, look for a bridge to live on. But here you have thousands of ways and you can find every time new ones, just with a little of imagination (like the example you said).
    Anyway, thanks for the post, it is good to read these kind of things.

    No idea - I took the idea of the site and bought a bunch of domains and created news sites so I had complete control over the process instead of using a 3rd party back when that was shared.

    60 days ago I started to learn about IG, I bought 20 accounts from a known vendor, some days later all disabled at once.
    Then I started to dig and dig and nowadays I have 1300+ accounts and creating 50-150 daily without any problem.
    My only problem is monetization because I am focused into EXPANSION and GROWING my numbers, I am focused on that and because of this I am lacking resources.

    I can almost guarantee I have the lowest costs in the game and I will start my own way to make $$ soon if I want to.

    Old methods can be used again when you twist them and understand the principles, I am not making cash because like I said I am focused into growing my farm.

    Hope people start to develop their own methods instead of just mimicking others.

    You definitely inspired me! Thank you for giving this motivation to us. What you've said is totally true, I get too many ideas from very simple threads!

    Making a twist on a method needs creativity, and let's be honest, most people aren't creative or clever at all. And who makes money, that figured this out already.

    You are right. The biggest ideas come from the most unexpected places.

    Ahh.. but they are.

    They just don't realize it.

    I've always been told I'm not artistic, and I'm not in the conventional sense as I draw like a 3 year old (in 4th grade I got all A's and an F in art) and can't play an instrument nor do I have an interest.

    But, give me a pen and paper and I can craft a decent level of quality content.

    Drop me a phone number and not only will I never forget it (that is more curse than a positive thing) but I'll transpose the numbers into letters and spell something out.

    My wife always says she has no skills in decorating the house but anyone that visits always compliments how nice our home looks.

    We all have some level of creativity in us - everyone of us.

    We have a deaf guy that rides his bike around here collecting recyclables. He is challenged not only with his hearing but also mentally but he always finds a way to carry the recyclables he picks up and when he is jammed full he figures a way to add more bags of aluminum cans to his bounty.

    Creativity?

    Yeah, you have it, I have it, the guy next door has it and so does 99% of the population on the earth.

    Buddy your approach and thinking are awesome... I feel very good when I began to read the message of yours... Creativity is within ourselves we just want to expose it with our knowledge.... Simply to say your words are like Boost for me.. thank you

    That's a very positive attitude, which is always good to have, but your post was about IM, not general creativity, or memory, as in your phone number example.

    Ofc everyone has some level of creativity, as it's essential for survival, but does it mean they stand a chance in IM? I think not. Especially if they open with a "how to make money online" thread on a making money online forum.

    People who don't think outside the box, won't start thinking outside the box just because we are telling them.

    You are 100% right... many do not have a chance to make a living in IM as IM is nothing more than niche self employment and many don't have the skill set to be self employed. I know and have known a lot of people that killed it as employees but were not equipped to be owners of a business.

    On the other hand IM is, from my 40+ years as one who was self employed or managed businesses for others, the easiest way to make a six figure income.

    But as you stated above telling people to think outside of the box who have no ability to do that nor the skill set to make a living online won't help them one bit.

    Those that do have those abilities though should be looking at some of the other opportunities that are not staring them in the face though.
