    Default [Newbie] Feeling totally frustrated and clueless about IM

    So. I just wanted to vent for a minute.

    I've been looking around, searching for ways to start out. There's so much information that I don't know what to believe, what to follow, and what to try.

    For example, I saw a method today for making money basically using youtube videos promoting some beat making software. But by now the whole thing is saturated, and keyword research seems difficult since I've never really done it before. There are paid research tools, but I don't want to buy anything without knowing what I'm doing at all. And I heard market samurai and MNF are garbage.

    I feel like I could make the method work, maybe for certain keywords within the niche, but keyword research somehow eludes me. All I ever find are keywords with high competition, or no searches at all.

    I'm trying to find a way to start making money, even if it's just $50 a day. My goal is to reinvest that cash into adwords and CPV campaigns in the future, but that takes a lot of money that I need to make first so that when I (probably) lose it at first, it doesn't hurt that much. I can afford a domain and hosting, but I don't even know where to go from there. I wanted to take some sort of action today, but I just feel frustrated that everything I look at seems bleak, even if I know it really isn't.

    I was thinking of just making a whitehat blog with affiliate offers, but I know I need to find a good set of keywords, start getting likes and followers in social media, get backlinks, set up tracking, figure out a plan, advertise the offers well, etc. etc.

    I know I can do these things, but there's so much information that I don't know where to begin. The only thing I know for sure is that I need to register a domain and get web hosting.

    I also thought about using instagram to promote CPA offers, but the bots are sold out and apparently the golden era is already over.

    I've read guides on keyword research, but I only find saturated or high competition markets. Any suggestions for that might give me enough of a nudge to get started today. I'm so eager, but so confused.

    Sorry for being such a noob. I really wanted to get started today, but I'm still stuck in the reading phase and it's frustrating.

    why don't you join a CPA Company - find an offer you like - build a landing page for it

    then go out and promote it - via PR / Articles / Social Media including Youtube and see how you go.

    You can't solve a problem before one exists -- and right now the only thing your not doing is taking action.

    Over time you can build Adsense/Authority type sites but those take 2-3 months to make money - where with your
    landing page you can make money today.

    First you need to realize that making money online is NOT easy but very possible. You say "just $50 a day" like its nothing and like just pressing a button and money magically appears, well its not.

    You need to realize that yes its not easy and yes you need to take time to read and learn and to be patient. It could take you up to 3 - 6 months to learn the basics and find a working method so you ned to be prepared to invest the time and not trying to make fast cash immediately.

    Keep reading, learning, work hard, be patient and take your time and never give up and it will all come together. This is not like a job where you work 10 hours and get paid for those hours. You could spend 6 months and earn nothing but the next 3 months make $10k or $20k....thats how business works. Learn to adjust and keep reading and learning.

    I didn't want to make it seem like I thought it was that easy. I just thought $50 a day was modest, but I get what you're saying.

    I don't even understand how I could make money today with a landing page unless I did some kind of PPC campaign. But I do know that you're totally right. I should find a CPA network, make something, and promote the LP somehow, or else I'll never learn. Even if I fail I'll learn something at least, I just want to take action.

    KW research is the easy part, there's a lot of great threads on this site. Read them all and then read them again. Look at peoples success stories and try to figure out what they all have in common. Take those success stories or methods that people post and think of ways you can alter them, and make them your own.

    Maybe reading the journeys and success stories would be better than reading the outdated methods. Thanks for the idea

    You need to immerse yourself into the internet, in the forum and understand howthings work. There's no magical thread, but there is so much knowledge and expertise here. It's like a jigsaw.

    Accept the fact that your first venture will probably knock you back a bit, however you will learn and improve.

    This is all going to take time and most importantly patience.

    If you're interested in the internet and making websites as a hobby then your learning curve will feel less steep.
