    Can someone who has made money using the Internet please be honest and tell me if they have made it in any niche OTHER than "self help" or "How to get rich on the Internet"? it appears to me they are the only areas where the real money is made. In my years of studying Internet Marketing is seems everyone and their both grandmothers are teaching "How to get rich". I challenge any of you to disclose your own website that is currently producing real dollars, and preferably something that has been set up recently.
    I am yet to be convinced, quite frankly I am fed up with the American style hype and marketing tactics being used out there. By the way I mean something OTHER than being an affiliate to the get rich courses.

    The reason there are so many get rich type courses is because they are selling the sizzle not the steak.

    If you have an hour commute into work each day then the same back after working 9-5 in an office, or factory the sound of being able to sit at home and generate unlimited wealth sounds appealing.

    Reality is a lot of these courses are faked screenshots, faked proof of earning and a waste of time, but people get caught up in all the hype and see these great ' earnings'.

    Yes you can earn money online, either white hat, black hat or inbtween, but you need to invest time, effort and a little money.

    It all depends on which sphere you're wanting to make money.

    Affiliate marketing, Adsense, CPC etc all work, just read the IM Journeys on here mate.

    Only a fool would share their niche and site.
    The niches you mentioned are the worst for making money online unless you set yourself up as Guru, people should avoid those niches until they have been successful in other areas.
    People are making money in every section of BHW, Clickbank, Adsense, Media Buying, so many niches and ways to make money.
    You have been a member since 2009, seems you haven't been taking things seriously.

    Appreciate the answer but it is not really the answer I am looking for. I want someone to stand up to the plate and disclose real proof they have made a buck or two in a niche UNRELATED to getting rich. I am well aware most testimonials are fake. Most things we want to learn about are usually easily accessed on You Tube. Who are the people who are making it in a genuine niche business of passion NOT in the IM niche?

    Nice try op, but you'll have to research your own niches

    Maybe you'd like all the research, keywords and all the other hard work people have invested time and money in ?

    You are quite correct I have not taken it that seriously even though I have tried many things. What put me off was I attended a Webinar run by 4 well known so called Gurus and we were able to ask questions. My question was what niche OTHER than teaching IM have you been in and made money. The answer was astounding. NONE of the 4. Just more American BS.....

    When you browse the internet you see ads related to, everything? Who paid for that and for what? Because they make money from these niches

    Also its seems no one here owes you something and personally I feel not in the need to prove you anything

    I am NOT trying anything pal, I well know how to research niches, I know all about keyword research, seo etc etc. It all points to teaching IM. My question is aimed fairly and squarely at the so called Gurus who teach IM. PROVE how you did it with anything else.

    There is a lot of bullshit out there, especially coming from the Gurus, remember most make their money selling IM products to noobs.
    Those who can, do; those who can't, teach
    This doesn't mean there isn't money to be made from other niches.

    Forget the Gurus, learn niche and keyword research. Find an unsaturated niche, or a niche where you can offer more value and milk it.

    Why do we need to prove anything to you? I don't feel the need to, nor will others

    We don't have to prove anything to you. There are no gurus here. We ran them all off. If you are only getting the "how to get rich" niches, you better work on your process, because you're screwing something up royalty.

    Most of my income derives from non-affiliate services, such as reputation management, branding, local SEO, and content writing.

    Nobody owes me a thing, I am not bitching, I asked a simple question that required a simple honest answer.

    Thanks, a good response for once, no one has to prove anything to me as you say, but at least you have outlined what you do... I Appreciate it. I guess my gripe is the thousands of spam emails I (and others get) mainly from America on "How to get rich" I am already rich in any case as imported and distributed real products for thirty years, I am now a retired old fart who would like to now have a go at doing something worth trying that can also provide some passive income.

    Your initial point was wrong to begin with.

    You've been a member here long enough to know we don't have 'gurus' on here, you're mistaking this forum with WF which is gurutard city.

    We all reply to you and probably we all have the same kind of question at the beginning, but you still asking for proof and it can't be done for the simple reason everyone can make fake proof of income so even if a guy takes his time to screenshot his amazon or whatever account it's not really a proof, I fully live from IM since 2 years and my family still don't believe internet money is a real thing.

    Just make money and you will see by yourself is not that hard to make a little $50/month passive income without any time and investment (once you reading this forum properly), month 2 > $100 and it's beginning but yes big quick easy money without investment and knowledge are total fake
