You're welcome bud.
Maaan you are a straight G!
Im wondering how long did it take for you since you were sleeping on the street and getting into IM to actually start seeing consistent profits?
Appreciate your thread
I've been off the streets for almost 5 years now but I did not get into IM straight away. As for most people living within society is normal I had serious problems adjusting. Living on the streets, shelters and prison has made me institutionalized to that way of life.
I still have problems with it TBH, I can act very extrovert, I probably have for some people an extrovert look but I rather live outside society. I don't hate all people but I hate society in general. That's why I am working hard to earn a lot of money not to live the richie rich life with expensive cars, jewelry and shit but to eventually live the simple life. Self-sufficient in food, power, have animals around me, nature and maybe like-minded people and ow yeah, an internet connection
I've done many kind of jobs in my life offline as several things online but only been focusing on IM for about 1.5 years which is too bad as I was around when the internet came out, if I focused back then I would have been a millionaire by now but "if's" don't count in life.
Currently I don't have consistent profits as I am testing out a lot of things. The other week I made $1k while the week after that I only made a couple hundred plus I continuously reinvest in other things.
I know exactly what I want and I will get there for sure but I'm a little bit further than newbies and realize stuff takes time plus IM has become a lot harder.
Bit of a long answer to a short question but now you know haha.
No, it's interesting for me to hear about your background, so no worries.
Yeah, i feel you on your point of not living a lavish life, but rather having a simple life with all your basic needs covered. Corporate marketing is turning our society into a selfish consuming horde, which is just sickening. Although I have to admit I'm a part of it too, it's really hard to suppress desires for a comfortable lifestyle.
Thanks for sharing the numbers btw.
I'm curious, what other IM projects are you doing right now?
And in what sense you say IM is harder than it used to be, competition wise?
I'm way past the level to get worried about things fast
I had a couple periods in my life where I was spending big time especially when I was transporting certain goods but when you are younger for most status is important, showing off etc and as much as I hate to admit it a lot of the oldtimers back then were right, when you grow older many perspectives of how you see life will change especially if you had a crazy fucked up life like mine.
I've thought about it a lot, if I would buy a phat Mercedes now would I be happy? It would contribute nothing special to my happiness, would I enjoy driving it? Sure but I rather buy something functional, only thing that is really important to me is the stereo system
I still want to travel a lot and that's what I am planning. In April around my BD I will go a week to Spain visiting someone from BHW, next winter planning to go to Thailand, I most definitely need to get back to New York and Austin plus got some other friends in the States to visit. I don't have parents, siblings, wife or kids so I can pretty much go where I want and that's what I am planning to do
My complete focus lies with CPA and eCom. CPA has many paths but my main target is advanced CPA which costs quite some money to invest and has a steep learning curve but I'm getting there. Then I do less complicated CPA like lockers, fake game generators and I help improving a couple people with their eCom sites and working on some eCom products.
Niche sites also have my interest as I know exactly how they work, how to rank, design, do SEO, monetize etc but they require a lot of work and really take months to become profitable so I've put it on a sidetrack for now although I own about 20 top domains that I definitely need to work on in the future. I also still have a good porn name which I need to create a porn site around it but don't have the time right now.
Thank you. Everyone can learn to make money
OT: I would not reply like this, mods don't appreciate it if you post 2 posts back to back within 5 min and could get you an infraction.
Having your own site is always the best things. These days you can run an commerce store without a big budget. You just have to find hot selling products and then drop ship them. Upload images and your own price on your store. When clients buy from you, you then order cheaply from sites like aliexpress and the price difference is your profit.
Yeah, sounds easy ey, yet more people fail than succeed. And believe me, you DO need a descent budget if you want to succeed in dropshipping.

This is the best thread I've read in this forum so far. Thank you so much for posting this! All your links and info will prove to be extremely useful for people!
That's great to hear.
Thank you for the kind words
Great help for fresh meat! THX a lot!
First of all......congrats on getting your life in order after suffering some tough times living on the streets!!!! Thats a great accomplishment on its own.
Secondly.....i REALLY appreciate the post as a 'newb' the methods explained seem do-able and not too scary to try out for those of us who havent spent a lot of time working in the IM industry.
Thirdly...my story....I used to do some of this 7-8 years ago to make some extra $$ over and above my FT job to help with bills (i gots 4 kids lol.....costs $$ to feed/clothe/etc haha)
What i did (if i remember correctly) was buy a hosting plan, purchase domains, set up wordpress blogs, and then set up similar twitter accounts & have my blog post all my posts on twitter to help drive traffic to my blog. I cant remember what exact thing i was using for my blogs for ppl to click on...i THINK it was amazon and some ofter pay-per-click affiliate program. I remember they had to call me to get approved and everything went ok (thanks to a post on BHW where someone posted what to tell them when they called haha).
I believe i used WP robot to automatically pull/post content 2-3 times a day....then my blogs had the amazon ads and pay-per-click ads on the sites. I believe i was using a program i bought on BHW that automatically 'followed' 75-80 ppl per day and hope that at least 1/2 would follow back which would mean that they hopefully see my tweets and click & go to the blogs.
I never did anything in regards to 'backlinking' - to me it looked very complicated on how to do it properly......but i think thats about all i did and i think i ended up with about 15 blogs (each one was for a different niche) - and of course 15 twitter accounts (one for each blog). I think at best i was making about $125 a month. I had hoped to make more but i was in a terrible marriage at the time and not really in the greatest of mental health due to many reasons.
Well today, i am faced with more financial challenges.....still got the 4 kids.....the crazy ex is gone.....but I am at the point where i need to make some extra $$ to help support my family financially. I think im going to try this method again (YOUR METHOD) and see how it goes.
I do have a cpl questions if you have the time...... 1) I do have about $100-150 to get started.....just wondering what you would suggest to spend it on. I obviously want to get reliable hosting and domain names...so thats a given...but I would love to hear what you suggest. I might even be able to squeeze out an extra $75 as i know spending some money on this will help accelerate results 2) all my content from my blogs were 'pulled' from other sites using i believe it was called WP robot......what do you suggest for content....do you use something like WP robot?? 3) If i were to focus on TWO forms of social media to help drive traffic to my blogs....which two would you recommend? 4) I did have an amazon associates account.......i havent logged in to it for 7-8 years. I see my adsense account is still current...any idea if amazon cancels old unused accounts?
I think thats about it......i LOVE this site for all the helpful info...and i LOVE it when posters such as yourself go into some detail about how to get started as it really helps us who dont have a bunch of IM experiance and arent too tech savvy.
Im located in canada if that makes any difference for any advice you can give me about my post.
I have google adsense......cant remember how/what it exactly is....like i said, this was all 7-8 years ago lol.
