This site isn't another one just promoting offers. You will find here tips and links to many ways to earn lindens (money) in the 3D virtual world called Second Life. Even if Linden Labs (the corporation that runs it) says lindens have no financial value, in reality, they can be exchanged easily to real world currency.
The information is given intentionally in a very basic form. The main idea is to make it accessible to a not very bright recent arrived in Second Life. The more clever visitors will have to jump the redundant parts.
Is Second Life a good place to make money? The answer is NO. Forget about getting a job there. Normally, the wages are at the level of a third world country. But if you like Second Life and want to build something there, a business for fun, or you just want to make some cash to buy stuff on the Internet, you can make about 10 USD a day with no big problems without creating things or opening a business. But despite the name of this site (that was choosen only because it is a popular one) that money won't be free (of some work) or even really easy. Probably, you will need to spend some hours online every day.
Things are not going well to Linden Labs and to the economy of Second Life. The number of residents have essentially stagnated in the last three years as shown by the number of users online in every given moment (and probably 25 to 40% are bots and alts). And even if the numbers published (http://secondlife.com/statistics/economy-data.php) don't show a main crises, the feelings in the street are not good. We see empty molls everywhere. Second life was not the same after the ban on gambling, on banks and on camping. This recent client ban of the popular Emerald client is not going to help. And these problems affect the incoming of all users.
Anyway, on your left you have some links. The main content is in the Information subpages. The best start point for a newbie is the Alts subpage.

Membership access will be granted to users that make a donation of 10 USD (contact us for that). Sorry, but everyone can make that money in a few hours with the information stored in the members section. And we have to limit access, since the information will loose some of its value if it gets spread wide. It might also be granted to a user that sends a very good idea to make money using the contact us. It was cooperation that took our ancestors out of the caves. And we need it even more in our days.
In the future, access might be granted to other users under conditions to be published.
