    So being a noob to IM and learning the ropes and stuff this was a huge leap for me :p
    2 nights ago I pushed a CPA offer of mine on CL and although my ads got flagged after an hour or so, in that time I got $24 using an email submit offer.
    The next night, I pushed my offer the same way again, but to different relevant locations and made $33!

    I also got a blog started, and been saving money from writing for people for domain and hosting, and hope to get that going soon too :) just need to learn some more on SEO. Luckily, my cpa offer works perfectly with the niche and KW's I am pursuing so hopefully soon I'll be making a few bucks a day, passively.

    I'm only 15 and have started IM about a month ago, so this is just to motivate any noobs like me, or anyone really. Making money can be done, sometimes even with simple methods. Just wanted to share my excitement and own success.

    Good luck to everyone, and keep on trucking! ;)

    I'm impressed; 15 years old and knocking down 28.50 per hour... taking an idea and making it your own.

    You are going to be a star in the IM industry if you continue on this path.

    Craigslist traffic is accepted by your network? Which network is this? I'm extremely interested.

    Thanks :)

    Thank you. I'm glad I learned about IM early, since I can kinda cheat with the whole taxes thing and stuff. :p

    Thank you Bass. I actually applied for your noob help post a while back. I've been reading constantly around here, and just trying some basic stuff, and have gotten good results. I plan to continue and start earning big bucks in the future :cool:

    Nice man

    Now time to scale it !

    CG is big enough to do that :)

    You can consider outsourcing your work Or automating the process

    Keep it up bro

    Did you put your link into CL? that could be why. Try to send link in reply if you can. My 2 cents and congrats young blood!

    Yes, I put my link into the ad the first time, because it was only a test to see how it would do. Got $24 bucks before my ads got flagged.

    The next time, I placed an ad, and asked people to email me for the info (link) and I got 100 replies before my ad got flagged. I sat there replying, trying to make each reply look legit, and sending my link. I ended up getting $13 from 100 replies i got.

    After that I got tired of replying so I just went for the in ad link again, and got more money, but again my ad was taken down fairly quickly.

    I wanted to find a free or at least cheap email auto reply software that had a delay function, so I could use that instead of replying to each email myself, but I had no such luck.

    Thanks!

    Considering how much I have total, I don't know how safe I'd feel investing it right away.
    But in that case, how much are rates for that usually? Anywhere/anyone you can refer me to?

    Don't outsource it yet; reply manually so you learn what works and what does not work.

    Once you get that down you will be in a position to outsource but if you do not learn that you will be missing an important step in IM.

    I'll keep that in mind then. Even though conversion rates seem to be a lot lower through email replies, at least my ads stay up for more than 15mins before getting flagged.
    Thanks for the tip :D

    Good going.. just try and improvise it rather than getting into too many other things..
