    As in what do most of the IMers do right now - Pinterest, Youtube, Twitter, building lists, something else???

    From my own observations, link building took quite a bit of a dive, but more and more people are turning to YouTube for traffic. What do you spend your time working on the most?

    Something tells me that you are not wrong

    I am sure it does, but I think that there is quite a bit of a learning curve (guessing here, never really gave it a try)

    Yes, you are right. It is probably one of the more expensive methods to learn with the trial and error part

    I dont think link building has taken a dive , its just the way people are building it. First of all you need to concentrate on building a really good site with good engaging content and build good quality links to rank the website and then when visitors come to your website make them go to your social page or newsletter so that you increase the value of your visitor.

    Nice topic! Being new to IM, this info. is helpful because I kind of know where to begin. Somebody posted on another thread that people stating out on bhw are kind of like a kid in a candy store. There is so much info, so many suggestions...it's hard to say "I'm going to really push blogging, etc". This kind of post helps me because it's not too far off from what I was thinking, which means i'm learning, which makes me more confident. Please continue to post on this thread!

    Completely agreed. Many of you will say social media is the future, CPA is the best etc etc etc ... Email marketing is the most profitable and part-automated side of IM.

    Seriously: {Social Media|Multi-Media|Link Building|Email Marketing|Media Buys}. Spin for unique variations.

    There has never been a time of more possibility. There are more platforms now than ever, ecommerce is more than legitimate now with so many new customers popping up each day, so pick any method and run with it. But, for the love of God, do work instead of copy/pasting methods, and you will not be making threads asking what to do because you'll see "oh hey, work gets results, and with these methods, the effectiveness of my work is force multiplied...who would have thought that putting integrity into something that's "easy" brings ridiculous rewards?"

    I thought we did this kind of marketing to, you know, not run with the herd and do what everyone else thinks is hot? They come here to learn, so it's sort of imperative for us here to innovate, yes? yes.

    The only way you can crush everyone else and make a fortune is by being unique, not by doing what everyone else is doing! :)

    Almost anything works if you are doing it the right way! It is up to you how do you work, implement the tactics and find your own twist. At the moment I concentrate on email marketing, but SEO, Youtube etc. works as good and can be of course linked with email marketing as well.

    I notice nobody has mentioned mobile /sms. Is SMS going to die off because of black blasting and the carriers cracking down?

    Selling "real looking" social media accounts and email marketing tools ;). Oh, mass video uploaders and video creation software.

    But, seriously, social has been a huge traffic driving force in my latest projects outside of any google BS.

    Those just push direct sales (poorly) for trash affiliates like Amazon. 99% worthless for climbing in the SERPS.
