Hi everyone. First of all, excuse me for my english, as I'm from Spain. I'll try my best! Said that, I just want to open this small thread to move through a kind of a reflection I have myself. Maybe are normal questions that all newbies have sometime, but I would like to hear from masters here. Things that come to my mind: - It seem that, when it comes to monetize on a inet level, it usually tends to be solutions related with CPA networks, affiliateing like Clickbank and something releated with PPC like Adsense. This is what used to be the most common way to monetize whatever the method to achieve this is. Said that, why this really works? 1) Why people should click on an ad in a "generic" blog (even if this is pretty well formed and created and has a good amount of quality content)? Nearly no one clicks on Google ads! They're annoying! Aren't them? 2) Creating a "sh***ty" page (microsites for niches or microniches), absolutely randomish with typical designs, do really convert? All clickbank pages, methods pages whatever someone sell online pages look alike! And all of em are so FAKEish! You see one, and suddenly have this feealing of "oh no... not this pattern again..." bothers and tires me on same level! Really people falls on this? How can this even be possible? 3) CPA, boy all the quests and quiz are the same s***t! Some of em never ending, others put ypour phone number here, pay 1.29? and literally put your phone on the trash can, as it will blow up on the nexts days. 4) Trying to create a baseband of clients/users, on FB pages, groups, or other places, whatever... to finally cheat them and move'em to a sh***ty page hoping someone is going to click an ad or buy a CB thing... 5) Buy low, sell high matters. Go on SEOclerk and buy some **** gig and resell it on fiver or whatever twist someone comes about on. 6) Porn. More porn. Still remembering when xvideos was something awesome, fresh and new! Man, what an idea! Right now, so MANY cutre-porn sites everywhere. There's a niche there? Sure, but man... 7) Videos places. Youtube or like this. Using ads and hoping someone clicks... does it really works? I love IM, I'm very cautivated myself! And even I'm particularly negative, I really feel motivated and keep trying things. But I've no results and I invest a lot of time, combining it with my day job and it's hard to see how when finally something gives you a penny, it comes from sh**t things... I don't know, there is not something more attractive than creating a site, and trying that others link you and putting some ads on that site and creating some sh*t posts with cloacked links and blah blah blah? And trying to move traffic from everywhere prettending to be someone who comments and making it look real and.... What rests there? What finally rests there? Just an strange reflection... I would LOVE to make $100 per day! This is $3000/month and boy, WHAT AN EXTRA INCOME! OH and a question that comes in my mind, have you to pay taxes for this money? Lets imagine yo got 100/day via adsense on a single site. End of the month, you got your vaucher. Do you have to pay taxes on it?
