    Are you making money online selling products, adwords or as an affiliate?

    I'm still testing things but have set up a few sites now and invested lots of time in tools, products, courses etc. I've picked two very hard niches though which I think maybe one of the reasons I'm failing so bad, since the start of 2012 I've spent around $2000/$3000 and made back $0 so far.

    Anyone showing success? anyone in the same boat as me.

    Yeah, there is a lot of money to be made online and people are still making money (read loads of it) :)

    If you have invested a lot of money so far and not seen any return on your investment then maybe its time to sit back and rethink your strategy, maybe going for niches where the competition isn't so intense will help you make some green online.

    Good luck.

    Ask me in a month or two and I should have an answer. Just launched a new project that I'm hoping will have some success. If not it's back to the drawing board. I'm not short on ideas anyway and there's a wealth of information out there so I'm sure I can make something work.

    In the past I made money from online gambling and uploading adult content but both came to an end. So I know it can be done it's just testing things out to see what works. I however won't be spending big money on products, tools and courses and doing everything on a budget. I think I've spent about $20 on my current project and most of that was to save me time, easier to outsource some menial tasks or to someone who has software and can do it quickly.

    Sounds like you need to go back to basics. maybe you are over complicating things too soon? I am in a giving mood so I'll help, follow this and you will make money. It's going to cost you money but if you have already spent that much whats another $200 or so...anyways

    1. Search out the BST section for MNS providers. There is a couple really good ones. Purchase one or two to get started and set it all up.

    2. Again, go to the BST section and search for linking packages that are good for post google updates. They happen so often you have to keep checking on the services compatibility. Since it's MNS stick to the lower costing packages as you are only going to be making small amounts per site so spending $200 on links doesn't make much sense.

    That should get the ball rolling. Next up...Clickbank...

    1. Going to use youtube for this. With youtube you are going to want to target most popular niches, unlike in Google where you would want to target low competition niches. These would be the obvious "make money online" "weight loss", etc.

    2. Go to Clickbank and search out the less popular or newer products in those niches and find one or two with a really good landing page. If it has a video sales letter, even better.

    3. Create a video review for the product. You can do it yourself or use fiverr gigs, whatever you choose. Just make it natural and creative. Upload.

    4. Build a load of backlinks. You don't get penalized like you do with Google so blasting your link sis ok. This includes getting Facebook likes, G+'s, re-tweets, etc.

    5. Search for a video view supplier. There's a really good one on here already. Purchase your package of choice and starting rolling in the views.

    That should get you going. It's not in great detail but I am assuming you can figure the other stuff out on your own. Scale this up and you'll be doing just fine.

    What on earth did you spend 2k on with zero return?
    Ive spent money on projects that sink, and lost more than that before, but always seen some return.
