    I have been reading like crazy the last month or so ? here and a few other sites. I understand most of what is talked about and can see how to implement things. I know how to design and setup sites, I have hosting and I can get my hands on stuff when needed (within reason). I have multiple sites that are indexed that I can lean on to get indexed.

    Here's my problem. I feel overwhelmed. There are so many options, I'm having a hard time sorting out what I should try first. I'm not one of those, 'I need 30k by the end of the week" guys. I just want to turn a profit.

    So, can anyone give some pointers as to how to select what it is you want to do? The only things that I would stay away from are adult and gambling type stuff. I'd like to focus on stuff that might have a chance of surviving for a while and not just one-shot gimmick stuff.

    If anyone is interested in giving some on-going advice via PM/email, I'd be happy to trade some design time for that. Or if you just want to share here, help a brotha out.

    I don't need to make quick money - I'm in this for the long haul.

    I think part of my problem is that I don't have any pressure to choose. I'm not doing this because I NEED to, I'm doing it because this is where I want to move my career to over the next few years.

    Even though I also think the adult area is bad to do....but i need money badly so i also do it....

    I also have been reading all over the forums and learned lots of stuff. I suggest you to get a journal and write down methods to sort every thing out. You should evaluate all the methods and mabe improve them if you can.....

    I started them all at once but you should start doing it one by one...
    You should set dates on when you should end and start projects....

    30k by the end of the week is very hard and i think is unachieveable for me based on my knoledge because i am a noob...but it CAN happen, you never know!!

    that's what we call analysis paralysis... LOL

    read only, no action... always procrastinate

    it's normal, I've been there...

    I Feel You Bro,

    But first you have to take action

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...868-thing-about-money-going-piss-you-off.html


    The truth is I'm on this business because I hated
    jobs so much that I just had to quit.

    I didn't like jobs because of the limits they had on
    me and the fact that I had to trade my time for
    the money.

    On the other side the Internet is the opposite of
    that, you can work anywhere you want and increase
    your income as much as you want? if you do the
    right things.

    Now, about your question on what to select...

    You have to do what people want. Forget about
    what (you) want or your hobbies. Sure you can
    make money doing what you love but the point is


    IT HAS TO BE WHAT PEOPLE WANT.

    This must not be confused with what people need.
    We need clothing?s but most people don't purchase
    clothes at Wal-Mart but they go to their local malls
    to get designers clothes.

    Do we really need to wear Hilfiger, Gucci or Versace?
    NO but we want them. That's where the money is.

    So my point is if you want to find the market, go
    to Clickbank and search for those products that sell
    well...

    Steal their ideas and create a better product..

    ...If you didn't know, Ford Motors can create better
    cars (like BMW) but why do they create crap like
    Escorts?

    Because they make more profit producing cheap
    products. This is the same strategy China is using
    against the US. So forget about your ego just go
    where the money is.

    The other thing I want to point out is about the
    return on investment (ROI)

    People have been dealing with adult/gambling
    industry because it makes them money but you
    have to take into account that it is also too
    competitive and it might not bring you the return
    you want unless you differentiate yourself but
    that is another story.

    We all know that (Making Money) is a very lucrative
    industry but if every one is doing it then it might
    NOT be worth the time and money for the return
    you get.

    Personally, I deal with dating and relationship
    problems markets simply because people have
    problems with these issues every day, so money
    is always coming in.

    I can make more money in this industry because
    many people who market here are hobbyists or
    scholars, so they don?t know much about marketing
    and they are not tech savvy like few of us are.

    Eben W. Pagan (David De Angelo) makes about
    $20,000,000 a year in this industry

    To sum up this wordy post I can say two things:

    to win in this game you have to fill the needs of
    what people want and this has to be driven purely
    by the ROI

    "What people want" is great advice Relaxin. I think its easy to forget that and get caught up in tools, methods etc.

    And to clarify, I think there was a little misunderstanding earlier, I am NOT trying to do something silly like earn 30k by the end of the week. I'd be thrilled to turn $10 a day right now.

    Yeah, it's probably where the vast majority of people are. What really sucks is when you move to break out of it and don't get any results. I suppose the answer is to just keep trying till you get it.

    Your RIGHT that line is such a crock of SHIT!

    Sometimes I watch this show on MSNBC I think called "Big Idea".

    the host danny duech bag who drives me fricking crazy is always saying "Do what you love and the money will come!"

    I wanna bust his fucking teeth out every time I hear that crap from his mouth because it's a total crock.

    Guess he keeps saying it because he wants to keep all the green to himself turning everyone in the wrong direction. :D

    Follow the money, even in what you may think are gigantic markets you have no business in.

    Selling a weight loss info product as an affiliate has more chances of making you money then selling a "How To Make Fishing Hats Out Of Beer Can Tabs"
    even if you LOVE doing it!
