    I find it really fascinating and strange how the mentality of so many... the majority... of newbie (and sometimes not newbie) BHW users is about "fast cash" using "systems." Instead of marketing.

    Like that is what we're here to do. Market on the internet. That is actually just it.

    I am a full-time affiliate marketer. And I'll tell you what: I don't do soulless tricks like this to make my money. I pick products, I then create advertisements for those products, and I find ways to drive traffic that I would be interested to those advertisements which promote those products.

    I market and in my advertisements, I prove the value of the product to the customer. And yes that does take work... a lot of work. But it pays off.

    But yet everyone is looking for soulless tricks like the one I linked to to make money. And while I think it was very nice of the OP to share their method, I look at the replies that say "this is a great way to get started on CB thx" and I'm thinking... no... it really isn't... you aren't learning anything about marketing, you're learning about pressing buttons. And that isn't going to make you real money. You aren't educating the lead/traffic on the product. You're linking to the product and crossing your fingers people will accidentally click through and buy. That isn't going to make you real money.

    But /shrug who cares I guess.

    Yus, you've guessed it, we want fast cash, with no minimum work to none at all. We also like to beg, demand and act like spastics in general, in other words good point OP.

    Who doesn't want fast cash?! :) For me blackhat is really a fast cash but only for short period that's why everyone is doing it but if you really want long term fast cash then you need to work for it which cost time and investments.

    Well these are the same people who lose all their money doing forex without studying or trying to understand it. They think there is a magic cash machine everyone uses, that doesn't need hard work and dedication

    This is black hat world forum. What do you expect. First intention of most people coming here to discuss fast money making method.

    But I agreed with you. Once we have some fund, we need to start invest in long term plan in a legit way. Do some research, promoting a good product, be creative and treat your customer nicely. Thats how marketing should be.

    Your method sounds like a lot of effort Windmill, surely you would be better off buying a WSO and making money without all that fucking around?

    If people didn't believe in quick cash, casinos would close down long time ago.

    However, for those who truly want to make the big bucks, the fastest way is avoiding the shortcuts.

    I like where the OP is going. It's something that disturbs me as well, even though I'm not into marketing. Much of the internet money trafficking is supported by false promises of value in a way that actually undermines the value of the craft. In other words, the immense opportunities provided by the internet undermine the value of skill, talent and hard work. This issue is recurrent all over the internet, it's not exclusive to BHW.

    And this can be seen in all forms of internet businesses. Content creation is a prime example: content farms and many so-called freelance "writers" take advantage of this.

    Markets will always emerge around the most sellable products or services, even if their value for the clients/end users is ultimately dubious. It's like a pattern that emerges from the interaction between gold diggers and uninformed (or indiscriminate) buyers. Some gold diggers are actually smart, and learn how to efficiently exploit the system; others just go with the flow without putting much thought into it.

    But I think that the demographics involved consist mostly of young people exploring their options. Might be worth speculating on whether this business trend will disrupt the nature of internet marketing in the long term. One ought to keep an eye on social patterns.

    I agree with op but making money in the process is also important. It just keeps you motivated.

    Truer words have not been spoken.

    As much as people like to think we've gotten used to the arrival of the internet in the past 20 odd years we've had it, the truth is that the majority of people still see it as a magical box that can make you rich in seconds, with no effort whatsoever.

    All you have to do is find the secret ***NOTHING TO SEE HERE*** button that some selfish people on this forum won't tell anyone about. Next thing you know, you'll never have to work again. Thanks, magical internet genie!

    The whole point of keeping it secret is to not speak about it. Why would you go around and talk about the free money button on a high traffic site like this? How would the free money button stay a secret?

    No free money button pressing for you for 3 days and no fruit before bed for a week. :eek:

    Only the Pro version is; as usually the free version of the Free Money Button gets released every March, while the Pro on January.
