    I'd like to wish everyone on this forum, but particular to the folks who are active on this section of BHW, a healthy and prosperous New Year. I'd also like to throw in three tips for 2016:

    1. Make it the year you took action! Most people who set out in their journey in IM never make money for the simple reason that they never actually get started. If you have been reading here for a while, and planning to take action, yet you haven't actually gotten started getting your hands dirty, than diagnose yourself with "PARALYSIS BY ANALYSIS" and stop reading and START DOING! Even if you are still very uncertain on the method, you will learn much more by doing rather than just by reading.

    2. Stop focusing on the negatives and placing obstacles in front of yourself. Every day on this forum I read about people saying "Clickbank is dead", "SEO is dead", "The golden age of IM is over", "PPC is dead", "Facebook ads are saturated", "The CB trust badge has killed conversions", "You cannot make money online anymore", etc... etc.. Guess what? I've been hearing these comments ever since I joined this forum...in the meantime, those who disregarded the naysayers and got started, are now making a comfortable full time income at home making more per month than most 9 to 5 workers do in a year.

    So stop blocking yourself and JUST TAKE ACTION! IM and Clickbank are definitely not dead - ebook sales keep rising exponentially every year in fact, and the recently implemented Trust Badge has actually boosted conversions (at least for vendors who know what they're doing)...clickbank affiliates are making more money now than ever, and those who actually GET STARTED and are willing to put in the hard work will end 2016 with more money than they could ever hope for - I GUARANTEE THAT! So stop thinking of the negatives - OBSTACLES ARE WHAT YOU SEE WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE GOAL!

    3. Focus on the goal: the serious money and more importantly the comfortable lifestyle that only IM can give you. I've had the absolute privilege of being there when my son took his first steps, when he uttered his first words, when my friends and family needed my support at a moment's notice, when I wanted to surprise my wife with a luxurious holiday abroad...and all these wouldn't have been possible hadn't been for IM...for the comfortable work-from-home lifestyle. Forget the obstacles...when you do meet them just keep focusing on the goal and deal with them as challenges like every business-person does.

    So to conclude, those of you who are thinking of "getting started" in IM/Clickbank, keep these points in mind and you will end 2016 much better off than how you started it:

    -Recognise you are suffering from PARALYSIS BY ANALYSIS
    -TAKE ACTION, even if you are still feeling unsure
    -Remember, OBSTACLES ARE WHAT YOU SEE WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE GOAL! Don't think about them, and when you do meet them, just deal with them as challenges and OVERCOME THEM!

    Happy New Year to you and your loved ones :) Let make it the best one ever together!

    Nice motivation for the coming year mate.
    I have been in Im from last 4 years & made decent money.
    I never had success with CB , why? I dont know. I received few payouts but very less around $250 till date. May be I am doing something wrong.
    This year will concentrate on CB. Mostly looking at health products. Hope I reach my goals with CB in 2016.

    Once again thanks Mancar for great motivation

    Great tips or motivational words might I say. My only problem is I have taken action I started a site 7 months ago and it is still nowhere on google, another clickbank website that I started has not even come into play. I don't understand what should I do rather than wait for my links to take effect.

    Hopefully by June I will start making some money.

    Please, don´t mix all this elements into one. I am one of those who think CB is not what it used to be. I made thousands in past with Clickbank just with social traffic. . I don´t consider myself like a negative person, just realistic. I would not recommend paid traffic for newbies. SEO needs money, time and there is a big % of failure. Social traffic is the cheapest and the safest way to make money on IM, under my experience. However, I agree with you that taking action is the first step to make money.

    IM is moving more money today than never before. The point is to choose the proper boat to jump in. Amazon, physical products and CPA are constantly growing meanwhile CB started to drop some time ago for the average marketer.


    Happy new year to everyone!.

    "those who disregarded the naysayers and got started, are now making a comfortable full time income at home making more per month than most 9 to 5 workers do in a year" -- now thats motivating!

    Strongly agree with the post, and for people getting started with CB, it's not an overnight task to learn what's required and start banking a full-time income immediately (not saying that can't be done!). But to have the possibility to potentially earn an average individuals yearly salary, each month of the year, is enough motivation to keep my fire burning strong.

    People make bank with CB - and even if it takes you an investment of 20-30 hours a week (learning and trying new things) on-top of a job that may require 40+ hours a week - ask yourself if that would be worth the time invested so that you could work at home? As well as have the potential to earn incredible money, which is only dependent on you and your keyboard!

    Wish everyone the best with CB this year, and I hope to see this side of the forum more busy ;)

    Very good point and that is probably something that is not said enough - when we say IM and CB are GOOD money, we are not saying that is easy money, especially at the start. When a person first gets started in IM, they are looking at weeks and possibly months of HARD AND TEDIOUS WORK, and long long hours (I know it was in my case). They are also looking at probably several failed attempts and bad starts, before striking gold (my first ventures, both as an affiliate and later as a vendor, were a flop)...

    IM and CB are good and comfortable money, but only once you have a system in place. People who think that CB is a "click and forget" money maker will end up disappointed (and indeed many posts on this forum are a testament to that)...especially for paid traffic...if people throw money at it blindly than they will lose money, guaranteed.

    However, those of you who can think long term and are willing to put in the sacrifice necessary for the initial weeks and months, then yes, CB (and IM in general) WILL change your life.

    Think of IM as a business, not as "easy money" or some esoteric loophole for money generation. If you can approach and deal with IM as a business, you will succeed. On the other hand, if you merely look at it as a short-cut to richness, you will fail.

    Definitely, I know several people who took 6-7 years to FINALLY understand what they were really doing and after 6-7 "failed" businesses they broke into financial independence.

    Once you get this down right, just about the most effort you'll have to do is update your wordpress site (which can be set automatically).

    Just accepting that each failure is just another chance to start again more intelligently is what helped me keep pushing. Which is something that you really need because there's likely not going to be anyone to hold your hand in IM and you think anyone and everyone is out to scam you. You can feel like you are lost in the woods a lot of the time.
