    I've used the search key and found many methods and want to pick just one and follow it for an extended period of time. I've been trying on and off for months with clickbank and recently peerfly. Ive tried landing pages/blogs, article marketing, youtube/animoto, fiverr gigs and thinking Im jumping around too much without sticking with something long enough. Niches that interest me are zip/email submits, health, surveys/work from home etc. Any advice on a method for me to try and just stick with? I have a month off before a new job starts so lots of free time.

    There are plenty of methods that work and there are plenty of ways of making those methods work.

    IM isn't an overnight game - pick something and stick to it - if its your first IM venture, I'd look towards a niche that isn't as competitive.

    Maybe look into microniche, easy to get started with those.

    Good luck.

    If your doing CPA - then you want to probably do incentive traffic -- that way if you have something that people want they will do just about anything to get it ... sure the pay is lower per action -- but get enough traffic per day and it adds up.

    Regular offers require more skill / more resources and experience and that seems out of your reach for now .. so yeah find something good - build a site - then start marketing it.

    Cheers

    For me the easiest method to make some cash is, micro niche sites. Build, rank, sell. I did this when I returned for IM after a years break. Its a good way to get ~£1,500 in your back pocket in a month without too much work.

    Other than the obvious tips you hear every day (like, stick at it, never give up etc etc), the best tip I can give you is:

    PLAN. Open an excel, plan every movement, keep a diary for each site/method. Keep track of everything. record everything. works great for me.

    . Thanks! By incentive traffic- are you referring to something along the lines of winning a free ipad?

    i am still have not grasp im yet but i am still learning with methods and techniques.in my opinion to make money online,u need to provide value to people.my first money online is ecommerce and how i did it? it is easy i look something that is lacking in my local country and once i found the missing key.i go look for supplier which cost below the market price and i sell expensive and the rest is history.but i am still learning to build sites and ranking which is probably my biggest weakness.

    tell me something that you have the knowledge and passion to talk about and I will tell you if it's worth it by checking out some keywords.
    I want it to be something that you can help someone and keep him hooked.

    If you have enough time, instead of asking suggestions from others. Just surf this forum, you will get the best information. This forum full of brilliant guys and making very nice income. Most of them shared their experience. Go through such thread and find the suitable one and stick on it.

    Great advice! I know this is a little bit of a common sense question but would an example of a microniche method be - starting a blog, developing a following/traffic and using adsense or more along the lines of promoting clickbank products/cpa that have less competition? Also would a good example of a microniche be instead of weight loss- weightloss in mothers who just had a baby?

    Incentive offers are the ones for which you can offer the visitor something tangible or intangible, depending on the offer. For example, lets say you have an ebook and you jabe that ebook on your site for users to download. You tell them that if you fill out this survey/offer then you can download this ebook for free. They compete the offer, you get the money and they get what they wanted. Now, this can apply to many other things. These offers are called incentive offers because you are giving them an incentive to complete the offer.

    Yeah you're jumping around stick to CPA, your funnel should look like this.

    Traffic Source 1 ------>
    Traffic Source 2 ------> Landing Page ------> Offer ------> Analyse data & refine landing pages/traffic sources
    Traffic Source 3 ------>

    Tip: Remember to set-up post backs ID's, so you can see which traffic source and/or landing page combinations are working best.

    Thanks for all of the replies! As a newbie wanting some feedback about how my landing pages look etc, is there an appropriate place for me to post a link? I dont want to come across as someone spamming an affiliate link. Im going to try the method involing adsense + youtube + a popular niche(he used car crash videos.) (Thanks to the abover poster for those two method links!) I applied a while ago to adsense and got denied so hopefully ill get accepted this time.

    Just pick ONE method and stick to it. Don't jump from one to another. That's your problem.
