    What makes you think that? $20k/mo is nothing for some IMers. He does seem to know what he's talking about when you read his responses.

    More than likely 100% BS!

    Or maybe it is the infamous BHW Shit List dude Portugalkix in a new guise!

    I think it's more a case of vastly exaggerated earnings, I'm sure he's earning a bit, but $370,000 in the bank at 17? Bullshit. And yes he confuses PPC with PTC, writes fairly poor english despite living in the UK with two doctors for parents.

    He's utter horse shit. He says he doesn't know what he does, at all, for SEO.

    so he learned all those languages in 6 months , and he confused PPC with PTC , and since when ptc sites hold your earnings for months?
    his website took him 6 months if not more to make , then he got banned for advertising his own website , that; s when he lost his earning .... I will call it BS .

    I'm the same age, and I make around the same. Why would it be a load of bull?

    yea its not but serious I been in IM for 4 years now and i have learned a few things. 85% of IM marketers barely make 2k a month.

    Now some may have a good make and pull in 10k doing something black hat yea so what but thats not stable.

    When people say they are making 20k a month they need to say I MADE 20k this month not making.

    some of these young people here say they make 20k a month but they still live at home with their parents. Come one so your making over 240k a year and stay at home?

    people here say they make 20k a month and cant pay their workers, cant put money upfront for projects. The list goes on. Its only a few people making a actually 250k a year stable

    I think it's probably true but he is 17, immature and lucky. He also says PPC "doesn't work" which many people making a LOT more than him would dispute.

    Still, I am jealous as fuck. At 17 years old I was studying, doing well in school, being a nice little bitch. I should have quit all that shit then and started on IM because I would have many many years headstart, compared to now when I feel old compared to this dude.

    Still, I'm clutching at straws here but he says:

    I previously said in a reply here that I usually don't tell anyone, and that is for a good reason. I've had a bad experience with my ex due to this. Seems like she didn't really like me, but my pocket.

    At the very least, at 17, I had no money and I had a girl that loved me. More important than that is the fact that this dude is probably boring as hell and chicks in general will only want his money. That's all I have here, trying to stop my jealous rage here with anything I possibly can, because it's not healthy!

    PPC definitely still works and people are making lots of money with it.

    This is truly inspiring for those young IMers

    Ehhhhh.. I don't know how I feel about that AMA. I wonder what the mods required as "proof" of this? Surely they wouldn't have been stupid enough to just accept a screenshot...

    It is possible to do much more than that if you are an experienced IM'er. Real IM'ers that are making huge don't keep saying this all around. I don't believe in his BS, I want some proof and not something faked in Photoshop, as many are doing out there.

    Everyone that keeps saying that is doing this and that, actually, is just dreaming and not doing real biz.

    Like many IM'ers that claim that have lots of Ferrari's in a garage and lots of mansions around the world, lol.

    I can't take it anymore, I'm tired of all these fairytales. lol

    What a crock of shit, have you read some of the responses to questions? I think maybe his mother didn't love him enough as a child and needs some attention...

    Apparently he is a member here."Yes, you'd be surprised who I am from BHW ;) You probably have seen me a few times if you've been there. I am there just for the community, and some of the SEO services."

    he made 2.5$ with a ppc site.. after 6 month he started his own ppc site and advertise it... then the that site refused to give him the 2.5$ he earned!!! Suddenly he start earning 100$...

    Some ppl still belief this BS...
    Actually I was one of them about 4 years ago
    And I am sure most ppl start their IM by reading BS like this one.

    BTW, this is shared before here.. same method with different words.
    Out of the 1000 comments..am sure at least 2% will buy his whatever for $$ or even $$$ if he really know his market.
