    Every attempt I've tried at making my first dollar online has failed. I started an Amazon affiliate site only to realize that it would never gain traffic, it had too much competitors, and there wasnt anywhere to truly advertise. multiple instagram accounts have failed me, except 1, which is growing semi-fast. I get 500-600 likes a picture at 12k followers on it, and I think i was too eager and made a teespring for the account and figured people would buy atleast a few. I had an awesome design from a fiverr artist and initiated a giveaway on my account and then marketed it.

    Nope. 0 sales so far.

    Just feeling discouraged. I've easily shelled out atleast $200 on numerous methods to make money online but I keep coming up short. I just want to be successful and I cant find my way.

    Try harder. Try longer. Try something different. I'm in over 1,000 dollars and 1,000 hours. Haven't made a dollar back yet. But I will, and you will too if you want it bad enough to keep at it.

    Banking in general ain't easy. It is not like waving a magic wand and there you go "money in the bank".

    Every method requires numerous revising, editing and testing. Don't just get discouraged just because of a couple of fails, which I'm guessing 90% of BHW members have been through.

    Keep trying brother and don't just give up when maybe the next big success is right around the corner.

    Keep trying and keep cultivating. In this game, from what I hear and read, it is better to have multiple streams of income than to rely on one cash cow.

    It's very rare people succeed on their first and second try. It's all about trial and error. The more of that you have under your belt the more knowledge you will gain from each niche/method you try. Don't give up though. You might want to look at other methods of making money online. Mailing, Chat bots ect. GL

    We all get down in the dumps OP - just stay strong and prosper through those tough times!

    Sales are essentially the hardest thing to come by in this industry. If they weren't, we'd all be millionaires.

    That kind of attitude is not an attidute of a strong person,not just in IM but in overall life too.
    IM is a business,it's hard and absolutely most of the people who try it fail and quit.
    There is not a guarantee that you will ever make anything,maybe you will earn some dollars and maybe you will get a great income,but the last requires to be stoic,persistent,determined and having a knowledge in IM,but even then you are not guaranteed to make anything,all you can do is to continue reading and trying.I have spent some money in this business too and have not made much,but I understand that this is normal,great things don't come easy,if they come at all.
    And one more thing,when you feel like that after another defeat in IM,just leave it for 2-3 days,calm down and the wish to continue working will come itself,if you are really interested in IM.

    OP, I am not sure if you have read Think and Grow Rich from Napoleon Hill. There is a story where a guy in the California gold rush was mining and he found tiny gold flakes. He ended up buying equipment then had the machine shipped to the mine. They mined gold knowing they were getting closer to the motherload, then the vein of gold suddenly vanished. The man was stumped so he gave up sold the equipment. The miner told the guy who he sold his equipment to about his failure. So the guy who bought the equipment consulted a professional. He said the first miner didn't know anything about fault lines and didnt know that the vein of gold would appear 3 feet from where the miner stopped drilling.

    The dude who bought the equipment and with the advice from the engineer, sure enough found the vein of gold and became a millionaire.

    Moral of story?? Failure is a trickster and usually pops up right before success. Most people quit. Don't give up.
    Also, when you are in doubt of something, CONSULT a professional, you will succeed my friend
