    Ok first let me say that I am not usually the type to whine and bitch about stuff but I am in a state of frustration and just want to vent. I see others doing it also so what the hell right.

    I have been trying for the past 3 months to try and make some methods on here work and so far I am not getting anything. I have seen replies in the threads saying that others are making sales after the first weeks if not the first few days.

    3 of the methods I have concentrated on are-

    Meatheads review method
    the make easy money with tumblr
    the lazy pigs method about the dating guide.

    I dont know what I am not doing or what I can do better but I just dont understand how I am the only one who cant make these methods works. I know I cant be that damn dumb that I cant read and understand what they are doing.

    I am starting to get the feeling that it just isnt meant for me to get into IM. Sad thing is, I live in a small town and the only jobs around are 2 hrs away that pay $12 hr and having a family with only 1 vehicle makes it hard. If I could make $1000 a month I would be content. I mean, it cant be that hard to make $1000 a month...

    Any tips or ideas for me? I know I am probably going to get some bashing for this but hey, we all started off as newb at some point right. I didnt make this thread to sound like I am looking for a handout.. I want to earn what I get because I feel if you earn it then you respect it more. Just thought maybe someone can put some insight on it for me.

    Thanks for listening..

    On a positive note, I did quit smoking 3 days ago... I do feel good about that..

    I've tried 20++ methods before I found a method to stick to.

    We've all tried methods that didn't work. If it were easy, you could just outsource everything and earn a nice return. Some methods work, some don't. Some methods work for me that won't work for you and vice versa.

    Instead of following yet another 'method' like all the other people who do not have the ability to think for themselves. Try and start a real online business and apply common sense. Think things through logically, if you stumbled on something that made you a ton of cash would you be sharing it with the rest of the world? Attracting all that unnecessary competition - talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

    Business is very simple - yet for some unbeknown reason people like to over complicate it. Sometimes it's the simplest things in the world like, finding a product or service to re-sell and then finding the best approach to get it in-front of buyers. Do you spend money online? If you do work backwards from there - that's where the real money is.

    I appreciate the comments. I actually have never done IM, I have always made my income with web design, 3d graphics and video creation, but hell even thats gone down hill.

    Let me ask this, How long do you concentrate on one method before moving on to the next? Maybe I am putting to much into one thing that isnt working when I should be moving on to the next.

    The fact you don't know only supports why you're failing. Everything you do should have KPI's and when you've missing them, you should be asking your self the serious question as to why.

    Hey man I am new as well I am telling you personally I see people saying HOW HARD IT IS. It is not. You need to read, I read for a few weeks here. Someone posted a very good post saying have a mindset of 1 million people paying you 1 dollar for something. Doesn't seem hard.

    You need to just keep your head up and try and try. There is a ton of information here. The thing that helped me the most is understanding the fact that I don't want to promote OTHERS rather promote myself. WORK FOR YOURSELF. Go through many methods and trash out the once you think won't work. The easiest way to start for me it is PPD. VERY EASY MONEY.

    Find new releases from songs and upload them to youtube than use depositfiles they pay you around 10 bucks for 1000 downloads. It is very easy brother. Also try to type in NOOB in the search bar and you will see many posts just read until page 10 and you will have an idea of what to do. I understand your frustrated but you should turn that feeling into MOTIVATION.

    BEST OF LUCK

    I have been around bhw for 3 years and lemme give you some advice.

    I still haven't made it yet! But, I'm still persistent and have made decent amounts occasionally. I'll tell you the reason for my failures. It is because most people beginning out just see a method, and start implementing without understanding its nuances. Only if you understand something completely, will you be able to profit from it. You will also be able to think for yourself and add twists to the method that will make it work.

    2 of your methods you chose have "easy" and "lazy" in the title. I wouldnt have even fucking looked at those methods because there is no such thing as easy money nor can being lazy make you successful....

    Appreciate all the advice and comments. I am going to make some changes in my thinking process and go back to the drawing board. Read Read, try, try harder, re read, try again

    This is what makes this board great. People willing to take a few seconds to help.

    Or create some real value, maybe that's why your methods so far haven't been making you any money. Are you really providing value?

    These are the methods you said you've tried:

    Meatheads review method
    the make easy money with tumblr
    the lazy pigs method about the dating guide.

    I'm not familiar with any of them but just the titles of 2/3 are "get rich quick" which isn't real, sure you can make some dollars, but it's not healthy or worth it in the long run to chase that quick and easy path.

    You need to build something real, and take your time with it, harvest it, baby it, etc. And that's hard work.

    The biggest problem a lot of people have here is jumping from crappy method to crappy method, never really establishing anything for themselves, making a business.

    You said you made money with web design in the past, that's a great skill! Why are you dropping it? Head on over to the offline marketing section of this forum, there are hundreds of threads in there with designers selling offline to businesses.

    Well said... Figure out what you want to sell then figure out how to get traffic to the site. You need to be passionate in the business and make it like you would expect another website to be.

    the problem in my opinion is following other methods here to the T. You need to be creative and experiment your own twists. Only to trial and error you are going to find something profitable, then you need to scale it. Let me assure you that many of the methods shared here worked really well in the past, and most of them now are saturated. You need to find a unique angle. No one would share their bread and butter method here and much less for free.

    With the review method, I spent probably a week reading on my niche and actually doing all the content myself, creating the videos myself, thats the one I have put the majority of myself into it. I am just now seeing my video being ranked and hopefully that brings in some traffic.

    Might be the niche that I am going after. Nothing I can do but to keep at it everyday and hope that hard work pays off.
