I joined this forum in October 2011. It's now reaching the end of March, so let's call it 6 months. For 6 months, I have been a very active member on this forum. I've read, read and read for several months before implementing them all one by one, and then noting down the methods that work and then finally adding the ultimate twist to bank more. 6 months ago, I wasn't earning a single penny. That's because I had never signed up to Blackhatworld. I regret that. But now 6 months later - I'm making an income from IM. I'm not going to boast now or brag but in these 6 months, I have managed to make enough money IM from Blackhatworld. I have recently reached 2000 thanks and 500 rep. This certainly does not mean I'm a reputable member or something. Although I am here to help, never put full trust in someone with high rep/thanks as there has been cases in the past where those users took that for advantage and then ultimately got banned. Which idiot would want to get banned from Blackhatworld, right? Note: This doesn't mean I'm a scammer, lol, Im jus' saying this because there have been a few cases in the past of reputable members scamming. Anyways, what does this 2000 thanks mean to me? A LOT. Although it's not that big on the whole, it means a lot to me personally to think that I received all these thanks from members I helped. Just a while ago, I made my post when I reached 1000 thanks and that meant the world to me. It felt good that people appreciated the shares / methods I released and it was worth my time typing them all. Now, whenever I get a good method I always post it here first. Im not active on any other forums as much as Blackhatworld. Why? Because this is simply the best forum out there. This post is specifically for the "noobs" or in other words, the people who are the exact same as us, but have trouble making money online. Here are some guidelines: 1) Stop calling yourself a "noob". Are you an alien? Probably not. You're just like me, an ordinary human being. You can walk, talk, eat, smile.. so why can't you make money? Think about it. Everyone can make money, but they need to know what do do / when to do it / and how to do it. I call this, CCD. Concentration: There are hundreds of methods on this forum. Especially in the JR VIP zone, theres a load of rare stuff. Read these methods. Copy and paste them into Word, or make a PDF and print it out. I know this might sound "sad" or "lame" but if you're going to want to make money, then you need to go over the limit and be "sad" or "lame" if you need to. Pick a few methods and read them. Don't then go and do all of them - that is the first mistake you guys make. Put them in difficulty order. Do the easy one first. If you fail, then try again. Success doesn't come immediately. Don't lose concentration and start doing different methods all in one go thinking that it will make you more money on the whole, because most of the times, it won't. Dedicate yourself a time frame per day. For example, back in the past, I would choose a method which would be easy for me to do. I then woke up in the morning at around 10. Then put a deadline time at 2. And then I would work work work for 4 hours with my single method. It's better than doing ten methods in one day and failing them all. Think about it like this - in a test, would you rather do ten questions in one go, or do them separately in detail to get full marks? We learn better when our mind has less in it. We have more space to grasp more knowledge. Don't cram your mind with tons of useless junk. Pick a method. Plan it. Achieve it. Commitment: Oh god! This is the most important one and this is why most of you fail at Internet Marketing. Raise your hand if you are one of the people that either: a) Read a method and say to yourself that you will do it later but don't b) Read a method and then immediately say "I can't do that" c) Read a method.. something hard comes up.. you exit the page Did any of you raise your hands? Ok fine. Raising your hands was a bit off topic, but do any of you fall into this category? I'm sure most of you fall into this category. Why? Because I did as well in the past. It's common and it's nothing to worry about. Most people read awesome money making methods but then just don't "have time" to do it and in other words, they are pure lazy. Sometimes a hard bit comes along (For e.g. - you need to make a website manually on 3 different platforms) and then you just exit the page as it's "too much" work for you. STOP DOING THAT. If you got a job one day, and your employee told you to collect a few files from across the room, would you say to him, "Yeah man, hold up, Il do it in a min bro?" or would you listen to him and not get sacked? You need to have commitment. You need to promise yourself that you can do it. Because you CAN do it. If you have picked a method, it's not urgent to do it on the same day but pick a day when you can spend a good hour or two implementing the method and making some cash. Don't give up halfway because you're lazy. Grab a Red bull and just get to work! Most of my PM's recently are how I make money online.. while I cannot reveal the exact methods, what I do always is get a can of Monster, or Red bull, or Relentless, or even some beer, (although I don't fancy that) and drink it while you're doing the work! It does help. I'm drinking Red bull right now as we speak. Don't drink a lot of those though - they can be bad for you. Listen to some music in the background, take a minute in between for a snack. Dedicate yourself. Make a commitment! Dedication: This pretty much falls on the above statement. Dedicate yourself! If you find a method to do, and the next day you're going out with your girl, and the day after you are going to the cinema with friends, that's COMPLETELY FINE. You need to have a life. But I'm 100% sure that you are not busy EVERY DAY, EVERY SECOND of your life. Even if it's for 30 minutes, just do something. And then save the work and resume later. It's no rush. You won't make money on your first day, and you certainly won't become a millionaire overnight. If that was possible, Id be a billionaire right now. You need to be committed to a task. Just because you have 5 posts on this forum doesn't mean you're a "noob". I know a member on this forum who has about 20 posts but he's making $1k daily. Although it's good to participate on this awesome forum, the main thing for you is to make money from this forum. Click here for a list of money making methods you can do. There's tons there so pick one, take a seat, grab a drink, and do it! Remember - concentrate, commit yourself to the task and have some dedication! If I can fucking do it, WHY CAN'T YOU? The other day my girlfriend was home, and she knows that I make money from IM. She wanted me to teach her, and I gave her a method to do (calling local companies doing SEO) and she managed to get ONE CONVERSION! Although it wasn't a big deal, (20), it was something! She managed to do a method successfully. She sat down behind me on the desk, got the laptop out and she did a perfect job. I was really surprised as well. So let me tell you again: If I can do it, and my girlfriend can do it with NO experience - SO CAN YOU. Stop dreaming of making $1k daily. First achieve $1 a day. Then rinse and repeat and make more! Start little, go big. 1) I try my best.. and I really commit myself, but I still fail! A) Fair enough. Something is not working for you. But look around you. There's many things right? That's the same here. If a method does not work, PICK ANOTHER and try it. Even if it makes you 50 cents, you made some money online! And all it takes from there is a nice, clever twist and you can make more money. Don't give up because you failed first. Learn from your mistakes, and try, try again. I always make mistakes, and most of the times I always go back and make things better. I hate to sleep with the thought of me failing a particular thing - so I always immediately go back and try to resolve anything. If something is not working for you, find where you are going wrong and fix it. If everything you tried still doesn't help you then try another method. DO NOT complain as this thread has hundreds of methods to make money online - whether it's from CPA, PPC, Freelancing or whatever. 2) It's harder than you say.. A) Of course money making is hard. You can't become rich over night. Sometimes it takes a few months to stabilise. But along those months, you would of learned a lot of new things which can help you more in the future. It took me 6 months to get to where I am now. I'm not going to guarantee you can become rich in a week. That's not what I'm here for. I'm here, helping you reach your aim in the most effective way possible - not in the fastest way. I can 100% guarantee you that any of you can make money online, whether it's 10 cents or even $10. It's extremely possible. It is hard, but when you work hard it feels easy. If you don't work hard, it's just going to feel hard and you won't succeed. Concentrate, commit yourself and have dedication. 3) Okay. I read a method, did EXACTLY what it said.. but it did not work! A) DUH. You can't just copy something and expect it to work fully. It doesn't work like that. You need to use your brain. Apply a twist to the method. This twist should be unique, and it should definitely help you make more money. I always apply a twist to any of the methods I read online. If I read Method X one day, and then Method Y the next day - I would then find similarities between the both and merge it into Method Z, a twisted method, made by me and most of the times, it works.
