    Hey guys, figured I would first share something with the noobs here who are just getting started or are having problems starting a atm machine with these great methods.

    1st problem I noticed here on this forum when I started checking out the methods (before I was a member) I felt as if I was bombed with tons of info all at once too fast. Stick to something that sounds interesting (yes all of it does but pick just one and try it, forget all the other methods you read and stick to just ONE method)

    I am going to tell you my NUMBER #1 Mistake when trying to do these methods...I would balk in the middle of a project because I wasn't getting any progress, no sales, no signups, etc...saying to myself "This isn't going to work!" and stopping and trying something else, ending up in the same cycle over and over again.


    MY NUMBER #1 MISTAKE!

    Same as a salesman's point of view: You need a product that WILL sell! Would you sell something that was just "crap"? Well truth is, there is someone out there who WILL buy it or in our case I will use "ACT" on it (being we are selling ourself to try and get someone to do an action which makes us money) Even though you think not, someone will.

    You have to look at this world as if you are smarter. I'm serious on this, not trying to claim I'm a smart one but, you have to think about this with anything you do to make money!

    I can say I myself am pretty smart when it comes to the internet and can spot a scam or money making scheme of any kind because I have been around it so much.

    Adsense is a perfect example for this, if you were never around the niche where adsense is discussed (webmasters, internet marketing, etc...) you would never know what Adsense was! Now how many people in this world are non-webmasters, non-internet marketers, etc...????

    Let's say you don't know what Adsense is...You go to a page and see a link for what you were looking for and click on it never knowing it's an ad. To test this ask a random person if they know what adsense is. Odds are most people don't know anything about it. (makes you feel good that you know something they don't, but shhh don't tell them, it's a secret)

    As I was first looking at some of these methods and being like there is no way I as a person would fall for it. I wouldn't sign up to an adult personals site that a chick instant messaged me about. Let alone enter my CC# into any thing that someone sent to me in an instant message. But yet you have to think outside the box:

    #1: Im not a horny perv.
    #2: I know they pay per signup.
    #3: I don't chat in sex chats, never have. :rolleyes:

    But, guess what there are some lonely guys out there that would do anything for a woman (man) to talk to them. :D

    This is just an example to one of many methods that is on here to make money.

    Perfect example of what I am trying to explain is this. Stay up and watch late night info commercials. Would you buy that package of how to become a Real Estate Millionaire?

    John Beck's Free & Clear Real Estate: Claims you can buy real estate for pennies on the dollar showing $250,000.00 homes that he bought for only $299.00, $325.00, ect... For only $39.95 he will send you the package to show you how you can to!

    I wouldn't...and I wouldn't for quite a few reasons.

    But to think why would anyone buy this? You know it's not going to be worth it, you've heard of all the scams on info commercials.

    But his commercials keep airing!!!! And I can guarantee you those commercials are NOT CHEAP! So someone must be buying it? And guess what they are making tons of $$$$!

    Same as with the nigerian scams....someone is falling for them because everyone is still getting these e-mails!!! Why would they be still wasting their time sending them out if no one was byting at their scam? Sad truth is a sucker is born every day...

    Same goes for anything you see at a store and wonder who the heck would buy that? Truth is, someone must be.

    Look up the "US Populaton" on g00gle, every second people are newly born. These are your new customers in a few years. Which guarantees you new customers year after year.

    Take a count of how many people are in the US alone. Now just think if you could get a small percentage of the population to act on your product or method.

    EXAMPLES:
    -Be it someone just turning 18 looking to join a personals site.
    -A person just got their first cell phone and looking for ring tones.


    Figured I would give some inspiration and hopefully help someone! Just remember to not give up and keep trying!

    Great post and a lot of good examples shared!

    My problem lies in that while I can find great long-tail keywords, I just don't know what my next step would be in determining if there's a market of willing buyers or not.

    Sure, I see Ads next to the search results in most of these instances, but often there's only a few and while that shows there's some buyers out there, I get so caught up in determining how to possibly market to that crowd, I start suffering from 'analysis/paralysis'...and wind up just spinning my wheels.

    For too long now I've been waiting for that 'ah hah' moment to happen, or that 'epiphany' to transpire, but at the going rate, I don't think that's going to happen any time soon!

    Reading posts like this tells me that no matter what I do, I'm sure I can find 'like minded people' who will see benefit from what I know and will eventually buy whatever I suggest/recommend because they'll see that it can help them in one area or another.

    Just to add, this world's population is like a BIG BIG pyramid...im surprised we don't ever run out of room.

    Just for another Example: We will start with two families. We will call them Family A and Family B. Family A had 1 boy. Family B had 1 girl. We will call them John and Doe.

    We have a total of 6 people now mother and father from both families and the son of one and the daughter of the other. They get married and have just 1 boy. Now we have 7. That boy meets a girl and gets married. We then have 8 (not counting her family). They have baby and they have a girl. (now we have 9) that girl gets married to another boy (again we are not counting this boy's family either) so on and so on....kinda like starting out with just on male and one female rabbit. Ok well, you get the point......

    So start getting your marketing right now, because you know how pyramids work, they just keep compounding on top of each other. Which means there will always be plenty of people to market to ;)

    Another thing you can do also is once you learn one method and start using it, later you can start combining methods and interchanging them to make them work better for you.

    I think for many it is NOT just the education you receive here...

    IMO - Many are lost because for the first or second time, you do NOT have a boss, or a teacher, or a parent TELLING you what to do.

    Do not get mad at me, (at least not yet). Think about this, in your work, school and home, there was always someone telling you what to do - Now, whether you ar full-time or just starting while employed part-time... regardless, who is telling you what to do? Who is making sure you are punching-in everyday to do it? Who checks the quality of your work?

    It is about self-control too, time management, desire, actual work ethic - do you hopefully work harder for yourself than you do in your job?

    Just more things to consider (overcome) while you struggle to figure out why...

    nice post.. ive had the swamped with info phase, trying lots of different things just as you said. i found leaving these forums for a couple of weeks,think about stuff you have read and then finding one thing to try is the best option.

    I found what im going to try, and if it works ill be making a donation and rinsing and repeating.

    loads of good info here, people just need to find their groove and stick at it.

    glhf!
