    I have been doing IM full time for the past 5 years, and still today, I'm making $0/day, I'm feeling very discourage.

    Can anyone help me ? Abit of encouragement would be enough.

    Thanks

    Are you sure you have been doing the same IM as everyone else?

    FYI, if you have been sitting on an instant messenger all day long for 5 years, you've definitely been doing the wrong kind of IM. :D

    5 years, full time, maybe full time in your vocabulary means 5 min per day, cause in this case possible, that you are making $0/mth, doing IM 5 min per day :)

    Explain more about what you've tried and your work schedule. Then we can tell you better why you are failing.

    if you have been trying to learn for 5 years and you have made $0

    then this is not for you.

    * Adsense
    * CPA
    * Affiliate Programs
    * Reselling Services
    * Offline Seo

    You should be making $1000 a month with the above methods after 1 year.

    Costs : Domains / Hosting / Software / Captchas / + any outsourcing

    Have you DONE ANYTHING and followed it all the way through. If you haven't tried any method to earn money but you have been reading the whole time, then that's why. An example is, people who are overweight only need to look up that you need to eat less and do 1 hour of running to loose weight but they never take ACTION so they never loose weight. People have all the knowledge they need, they only need to take ACTION.:ranger:

    You have been doing IM for the last 5 years and still have not made any money? If that's the case, why are you asking this question now at the 5th year? You should have asked this 4.5 years ago.

    maybe you have been planning for the last 5 years and never take action
    because if you try just one of the method here you will make money, just see at the case study or the journals

    Hey don't be too hard on the OP. Rose you have definitely driven down the wrong road if you are not earning after 5 years but you must have learned some skills that you can make work for you ?. Maybe adsense and CPA etc are not for you but if you have 5 years experience you must have some valuable skills. Article writing, graphic design , website building, cms experience or HTML, seo or seo tools at your disposal that you can monsetise.
    website building and flipping, desktop publishing,list building

    There must be some skills you have that have value you just need to stop what you are doing now and try something new.
