When you first started making money online, which method did you use?? More importantly, were you successful??

I'd like to hear everyone's first money making experiences! Please no specific programs just methods..

Here's Mine:

I started out with freebie trading and, while I made some consistent money, I wasn't making much at all so I moved onto other things. I think it's a great way to get started & learn about the online business world while making some extra cash.
