My first ventures into IM was pushing CL products through websites such as squidoo, and I saw tons of success After about 6 months into that I made the dumbest mistake of my life, i quit my IM for a "real job" which stopped me from working on IM for about 1 1/2 years. During that timeframe, I watched my work trickle from 100 dollars a day to 75, to 50, to 20, to 20 a month, to nothing. Eventually, I decided to come back, but focused on a few other routs (tinkered with CPA, started working with adsense, etc) but eventually decided to go back to article marketing...but theres a problem I picked up right where I left off, using the same tactics as before, and saw NO sales. I said okay, gotta change things up a bit, and applied MANY new things I had learned/become better at (MUCH better SEO, keyword selection, product selection, SERPS, backlinks, etc) and have dominated a few different fields with success ranking wise, but STILL, not a SINGLE sale. Here are my results for the last 14 days: 150 hops 3 order form impressions 1 order form submission ZERO dollars. no clue what that 1 order form submission was, no refund in place, just the submission with no profit this is month 3 of me picking this stuff back up, im obviously getting some traffic and some hops, but I cant seem to get a DIME into my pocket. Does anyone else do article marketing such as this? Is it even a viable way to do things or have those communities just gotten sick of it and dried up?
