    My IM journey (8 months) was a total failure.
    I've tried CPA ... didn't woked. I've made 30$ doing this.
    Acrticle writing is not for me. The main reson is that english is not my first language (i'm from Romania).
    I've made 5 autoblogs. 0 earnings in 3 months.
    SiteFlipping --- the only thing i know is wordpress. i suck at PHP.
    Hiring a menthor for 90% of my eventual earnings -- didn't find one.
    I've lost my hope and i've tried online poker and casinos.--total failure.
    The only thing that i am good at is 3D design-- didn't find a job.

    I know i'll receive answers like this:"read more" ,"nobody is goind to spoonfeed you". "bet your 30$ on red"...and the list continues.

    I really need a piece of advice. Thanks.

    Instead of writing this pointless post you could have applied for a few cpa networks and got a new campaign started. Also by 3D Design do you mean autocad etc?

    I am still in the learning stage. Soon to start implementing as time has become available to me. The only thing I can advise you is not to quit!
    Good Luck!

    Ive had 2 business's (offline) fail and many more do much better. This last year its been ~30k invested in a business that was supposed to be worth 100k in sales right about now but I am just riding even (Bigger investment, bigger returns, greater risk... definitely my all in hand, haha)

    Recently, one of my strategies for it (Facebook) had all my accounts banned (I knew it was going to happen) today, started over, changed some of it, started with new campaigns and have seen enough positive feedback to know this is a safer and more effective way to run it.

    By starting over you know what killed it last time, now take what made you that $30 and repeat. Find out who and why you made that $30 and focus in on driving it that way, but refined.


    Persistance, trial and error


    PS. When you start making something, you'll find you frequent here less. Its better, allows you to focus and ignore 90% of the fables about peoples 55k days. Just go do what you know how to do and are comfortable with, when it doesn't work or you see another way to expand it and don't know how come here and search or ask questions. Thats really what this site should be used for, now get off and go back to that $30 (or any of your other income from IM) and rinse repeat

    You really cannot succeed in anything without failing first, otherwise how do you learn.

    At least living in Romania you don't have to make so much money to be successful at this business.

    Try doing some work as a freelancer with your graphic skills and wordpress skills.

    Are you working fulltime in a real job? For me personally. It makes things flow alot more easier. There is no pressure to make money right now, and you can learn when you feel like it. Plus with a real job you have money to back you up when you first start.

    Too many people in this industry say that you should just go flat out and learn everything possible, try everything possible and do it right now. But it just doesn't work like that for everyone.

    How long have you been doing web stuff in general? I made my first HTML page 6-7 years ago. And have been learning since. Never think that you can just jump in and make it in the first couple of months.

    Why don't you try online freelance like oDesk or getafreelancer ?

    if you have a decent portfolio you can easily get $15-20/ hour jobs

    coz i'm a 3D designer as well. :D

    If you are on chat all the time, find a way to leads. Ill provide them - Here are the details for them


    Custom Niche Targeted, US Only, Leads with Custom Information Provided. Created Daily Per Order

    They come in CSV (excel format)
    Subjects included in the report are:
    1. Email
    2. Name
    3. Subject
    4. Date
    5. Message

    If you can sell them at 1000 leads for $100 Ill give you $20 a day.


    Now you have to find out how to
    1. Build a client list
    2. Keep good relations with them
    3. Make sales
    4. Ask me "how" privately, since I have do/have done it


    Don't want you dropping out of IM, that is $20 a day right there if you can sell them. This is out of good deed. I don't need to promote this or do it personally


    As for 3D design....thats where I would make $0 myself. So kudos to you for doing it, make that portfolio and don't lose touch with it. Actually, I say POST UP some sample work you don't mind sharing - something you can look at and we can give you some feedback on or direct you on a good place to go with it

    The difference between people who succeed in this industry and fail is simple, the people who succeed didn't quit when they failed. I've seen little successes over the past few years I've been doing this type of stuff, but I don't plan on quiting.

    Some people are okay with working a 9-5 for the rest of their life, making average money, living an average life, because that's how they think it has to be. It's not for me though. Whatever you choose to do goodluck.
