If you don't have much gold to start with then the best way to go about getting gold is to farm. Mining + Herbalism is a sure fire way to earn risk free income. Once you have enough money, then you stop working for money and let your money work for you. It's just like real life. At first you have to work to earn a big enough bankroll then you can start investing and make a living off your savings.

I would have to ... agree in part and disagree in part. In my own experience, copper sells pretty well, but tin does not, and iron is sporadic. Peacebloom and silverleaf don't sell at all, but mageroyal on up can.

IMO the best way to get started is to have a tailor/enchanter. Disenchanting greens, blues, purples, quest rewards, and crafted materials is often more profitable than vendoring them. And as basil discussed in a previous column, 16 slot bags are almost always going to net you a nice profit from simply buying cloth off the AH and crafting bags with it.

On a max level character, I would agree with tailoring/enchanting as very viable; kill humanoid mobs, loot cloth, make greens, DE. If you're a low level character though, mining and herbing are better, and actually I would say do herbing and SKINNING since you have to kill animals for quests anyway, and skinning makes them respawn faster. On my server at least, generally any leather sells well, and most low level herbs do too. As was pointed out, copper and bronze are good sellers but tin is usually not...and rough and coarse stones are too often vendor fodder, not worth listing.
