    I've been working really hard. I've tried many different ways of making money. I've hosted lots of websites, tried affiliate marketing, CPA, SEO, PPD, PPC Facebook and still no luck. I've tried so hard, but everytime I fail. It takes up so much of my motivation away to think that I've been trying since so long, literally breaking my back on my laptop and still havn't been able to make anything.

    I know this might be dis-motivating to anyone who has just started off but I'm just really de-motivated. I've tried to make money with no money at all except of a few $10 $20 hostings but failed.
    The only option I have left is to try to make money with money. Through PPC. I'll get around $1000 to invest and I'm thinking I should invest this in Bing. I'm just too scared because of my previous fails.

    I have people that tell me this is not possible. I have people telling me that you can't make money just by sitting your ass at home using your laptop. I used to be so confident that I told them they'll see.

    I just have this $1000 to invest in Bing. I head people lose a lot of money before they start earning in PPC. I don't know what should I do.

    Stupid fucking ideas like that are why you are consistently failing.

    Start from the beginning. Don't jump right into PPC. That's how people lose their asses.

    Three fucking years. Christ man.

    If you have been doing IM full time for 3 years but still haven't earned/ learned anything then IM is not for you.

    It is not for everyone, move on mate.

    Try with dropshiping + social media

    Affiliate program: Aliexpress + Facebook groups (in this you dont need invest)

    Find and read some journeys about CPI / PPI + IG

    The next steps is copy the samething that other that have sucess or find a better way.

    Dont invest a lot of money in something that dont give to you good results, when you have this, invest a little money and with the time, scale this.

    How is that a stupid idea. I setup one site over 12 months ago and bing sent me an email giving me free money for ads. So I thought hell yeah lets give the new site a shot. Never used bing ads before but thought sod it it's free. I listed 5 keywords and made $200 in 14 days. It cost me nothing. It drove a fair wack of traffic to my site to push my site to page 1 on google. I was there for 5 months heck i was no1 for around 30 days. Now that was fun! The seo behind that page was weak the main reason it was there was due to the traffic from the ads. Don't under estimate bing ads. Oh and not jumping into ppc straight away isn't the best advice for everyone i knew a lad that knew F all about IM he invested in PPC for clash of clans in his home language and guess what one month later he was up 5k. It's all about knowing what people want and where the gap is in the market.

    To the OP if its free try it or why not use a coupon try it. Its a big learning curve mind you. But yeah 3 years mate and not dime? What are you doing. Hit me up via PM if you want ill give you some ideas when i get the time.

    Oh and don't spend that $1000 on ads! Try a coupon. No harm in wasting a few dollars. If it doesn't pan out you could always pay someone else to work for you? ;)

    3 years of serious effort and absolutely $0 to show means IM isnt for you. Spending 1k on bing right now would just mean losing 1k.
    Like others said if you're intersted in bing, start small and build up. Don't throw 1k at the start if it's your first time doing ppc.

    I have a better idea OP: take your 1 grand and flush it down the toilet.

    No, go ahead. I'll wait.



    How much did you get back?

    If you've been working online for 3 years already and made no money, I don't think IM is for you.

    You sound like perfect bait for a guru.
    *brushes mustache into beautiful mustachio*
    You sir need a mentor and I just so happen to mentor for the reduced price of $1k at this very moment! This is a ridiculously low rate. I will teach you how to brew bacon wine, wear a monocle, grow a fine mustache, and mate with many of the opposite sex. You sir are one lucky man to have met me at such a time.
    Disclaimer- I will only accept people looking to lose money for nothing.

    Dude, don't invest your thousand dollars, your track record means that your chances of making them back and then profiting are slim to none. You're obviously doing many things wrong. If you have the motivation, go back to all your failures and analyze them sincerely and then try to redo something you've failed at. All the things you mentioned are making other people rich, so changing the method is most probably not going to do it for you. There is something wrong with what you are doing, so don't blame methods and move to a next one to fail again, pick something that is supposed to be easy and do it over and over again until you become such an expert in failure that you start finding success.

    Unfortunately, if you're not that stubborn, it actually wouldn't be unrealistic to draw the conclusion that IM is not for you and move on to other endeavors. 3 years of hard work is not that little...

    I agree for as long as you have been doing it and you have not made anything, then it is not really for you.

    you must have done chit backwards bruh.

    i first created my chit site like a year or two years ago..but had clickbank product on it and sold one for 50 bucks. despite the fact that i maybe promoted like two days and didn't update for months and months and months

    and ive barely started with this other stuff (and the thing is i know that it hasn't been the best quality) yet i've made money (very little but still)

    you must be doing something backwards..or lyin

    I dont think that the only solution if that " if you dont make some 0 usd, this isnt for you " if you like doing IM, i think if for you lose money isnt painful, try with other methods, but dont spend a lot of money, i think nobody here before start, never read or do something that can make a solid plan and have sucess, maybe your mistake isnt read or copy the samething that other people, start again but with something that have low risk, make a realistic plan for exmaple first doing 1 usd per day, and scale this.

    I think anybody can find something that is for how you think, how you work, how many risk you can put in this.

    Many have good and sucess with SEO, other with ecommerce, even people can make a lot of money with social media others love the risk and doing forex, commodities, index or stocks.

    I think you should avoid opinions that dont give to you solutions with good ways, avoid that shit, maybe in the begining you dont be focus in your plan or dont give the time that you was need do this.

    Even in the freelancer websites take time have the first job, even people with biggers company dont have sucess in the start.

    Remember all that you do in the past and dont do this again and find in this forum something with good results and start for this.

    Good luck!

    I feel u man, thanks for those who gave positive replies. Maybe we could keep in touch and try to figure out what works or what needs tuning.

    I like this quote
    'If You Want Something You’ve Never Had, You’ve Got To Do Something You’ve Never Done'

    Thomas Edison finally got it after 1000 tries.
