    I decided to make a post detailing a few tips that I highly recommend for those starting out with internet marketing and making money online. These are just some tips to keep in mind when you are starting your first projects, enjoy.

    1) Just think and execute

    When people start out they have a tendancy to ask a lot of questions and seek tons of information. I did this to, and in fact it's actually a great thing to do. But afterwards once you have all the information that you need, you should be executing. Don't try to formulate a master plan from start to finish. What you should be doing is taking things one step at a time and figuring out ways to overcome your obstacles. For example, if Facebook keeps flagging your accounts, how can you get around that? Maybe you're being flagged due to using the same IP over and over. Maybe the quality of your accounts are terrible. Maybe your actions on Facebook are triggering the flag. You need to sit down and address each issue that is causing you trouble when it comes to accquiring traffic. You then need to logically think about what may be potential reasons that are causing these obstacles. One way to test your potential reasons is to eliminate every step of the process until you see where exactly things start to fall apart. It sounds like common sense but still so many people don't do this, they keep doing the same thing, setting up their accounts in the same fashion, having their accounts or profiles get banned again, and then coming back to BHW to spam ask a bunch of questions. Just take a moment to think about what can be causing your issues. Look at what other people are doing. If you're spamming Facebook groups or forums with CPA offers, literally find examples of other people doing the same thing and try to replicate their set up.

    2) Be creative and open minded

    Be willing to try different and new things. So many times I would get laughed at or kicked out of Skype groups because people thought that the ideas/methods I was suggesting are too outlandish and wouldn't work. They would dismiss what I say as "trolling" and then boot me from their chats because they think i am a "troll". Then I turn around and test the "outlandish" ideas or methods that I thought of and all of a sudden I'm getting results. Internet marketing is fascinating in that you're rewarded for being creative. The point is to be open minded about EVERYTHING, you'd be surprised at what generates results.

    3) Keep testing until you find something solid

    Internet marketing is all about testing. How can I get more people to see my offers? What do people respond more to? How can I minimize the amount of actions my viewers take before they arrive on my landing page? How can I make it so that purchasing my product or completing my offer is a very easy process for the viewer? These are things you should be thinking about. You should also be testing various niches until you find something that works. In my opinion, if you are doing black hat marketing it's important to be able to test multiple things easily. You don't want to be invested on one niche and trying to make it work. Try different niches and see which one is best, that's why you need a set up that allows you to make changes on the fly. Manually making websites and buying domains for every single niche you want to test does not seem time efficient. You can get so much done using free websites or even direct linking your offers. Remember, the goal is to test different niches, settings, and set ups easily. This will especially help you when it comes to paid advertising. I know that testing multiple niches does not sound fun to most people, I didn't think so too because it seemed like a lot of work. What I wanted to do when I started was pick one niche and try to make it work no matter what, testing is very important though.

    4) Don't get distracted

    You want to be focused if you're serious about making money online and progressing. If you spend hours a day on the CPA chatroom on your network just trolling and typing away you are basically goofing around. You're not making real progress, you could be spending that time testing different niches or trying different things. Nowadays, I never chat on networks. I rarely even chat to people on Skype. I'm busy focusing, scaling, and making money. That's what you should be doing. You should be executing and taking action. Another thing you want to avoid is asking too many questions. Asking questions is great sure, but once someone starts asking questions they have a tendency to start unleashing a series of never ending questions because they think each answer is the key that they're looking for. I use to think this too. The truth is, ask a few questions to get the basic idea down, then go out there and start testing. You can find the answers to most of your questions on your own, you just need to be dedicated to make things work.

    5) I don't recommend groups/skype groups

    You've probably seen these groups before. Open skype groups, everyone is free to join. Soon these groups are flooded with 20,30,40,50+ people, 95% noobs that are brand new and joined hoping to get advice or tips. Groups aren't a bad thing, but you want to make sure that the groups you join are private, low-key, and high entry groups. You don't need a group of 10+ people to make money on the internet. In fact, you can make money by being in no groups. Most high rollers are the ones who literally don't talk to anyone and just sit on their computer earning and hustling all day on their own. Once again, if you do decide to join a group, I recommend it be very private and everyone in the group is already earning a good amount.

    6) Be dedicated

    Most people don't earn a single cent on the internet because they just don't care enough. They join a site like this, browse it for a day, entertain the thought of making some money online, and then leave to go back to their normal lives. You have to really want this, if you're half-assing or already making excuses you've already lost. You may be in a difficult time in which you are earning absolutely nothing right now and that's okay, I've been in that situation plenty of times. Testing a bunch of shit online, earning nothing, and then going to bed at the end of the day hoping that tomorrow I'll make some progress. Earning jack shit for a period of 1,2, or 3 months is fine. The key is that you still keep trying different things. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to make this work, you just have to be relentless and keep going even when you're in complete shit, that's really what it's all about.

    Great post, I also agree it's a good idea to avoid those Skype groups. Filled with idiots begging for methods.

    Excellent tips :) I struggled a lot with the first one myself, always seeking "the right answer" as to what I should be doing online, but as it turns out your ASSUMPTIONS about what is going to work and what actually happens are two different things! Theorizing all day means nothing, you have to just try and see what the heck happens and go from there, when you get winners scale them as hard as you can and keep trying things out. it may take 10 attempts before you find something that clicks, but if you spend a lot of time dithering and theorizing inbetween those 10 attempts its gonna take you 3 years to get through them, whereas if you just go for it you'll know sooner or later what the deal is. IBM's founder once said the secret to success is to double your rate of failure.

    great post, got me thinking!

    Agree with #1.

    Just get started and execute. That was my issue when first starting out and is still an issue when entering new projects. It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the information, techniques, applications, networks, etc. You just have to make it happen.

    Superb advice. I feel it is going to help me as I've made thousands of dollars online over the past year working online, but I feel I can do a lot better for myself and these tips are helping to give me a solid foundation for what I need to do going forth.

    very nice. From my experience one more quality is required. Learn the skill to present service well define to attract customer and work to make perfect. Learn everything in general relating Internet market and focus on anyone or few at a time.

    Bang on target mate!

    Tons of people get into the analysis-paralysis mode. Once someone knows the basics of seo and selling, the next best step is to start experimenting. Unless one experiments, the learning is totally theoretical and only adds to the paralysis.

    Taking the first step, and following it up diligently is the only way to get into action.

    Thanks for posting this. Several times, we need to go back to basics and remind the simple things that we tend to overlook. This post is a great reminder of what worked in the first place.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the tips, I agree with everything, but just to add on this paralysis-analysis part it is true when one have basic knowledge of most aspects of IM then it is a problem,but for noobs like me for example when I read some methods here there are so many terms I have heard for first time,and obviously I need to build up basic knowledge first before starting with any method no matter how simple it seems, one can make silly mistakes when you are just going blindly follow some method without basic knowledge.

    6) is the point. Need to be patient.
    My main default is there, I want to work a whole week and get results.( Dreaming of quitting my job etc)
    But sometimes it can takes months and I would have already given up.
