    Just curious to know.

    Has anyone struggled more than 13 months on IM to see any kind of result?!

    I know people rank and bank within weeks, but just curious to know if anyone has struggled as long as me?

    Right now i am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but still i am uncertain if i will ever earn something from my efforts.

    13 months on IM and still...

    Get back to work dude!

    Don't start any useless thread AGAIN till you reach your goals (if possible)

    Really.... BHW is the biggest distraction on my IM campaign (it could be yours too....)

    I'm pretty sure the main issue you have is sitting on BHW too much.

    You're all over the place, probably not putting in enough work.

    I've met some silly ass people in my almost three years in IM. They all complained and whined all the time, eventually I managed to actually get some of them to put some real hours into a project..

    Even the people who couldn't make $50 in a month and barely spoke English managed to get into $XXXX a month, with ease.

    started back in 2008 , it took me one year to get my first clickbank sale. And over 20 months to receive 2 checks of $100 each . Back then i was a DPer , did everything manually .

    Dude 13 months is nothing. I have been working it since 2011 and haven't seen much in terms of money. However, I have learnt allow of skills that I will use for the rest of my life. I am only now starting to take it seriously and I don't have any doubts about my ability to bank. Just keep at it and keep learning.

    ive been going at it over 5 years...lol Its funny the first time i did IM i didnt even know anything about it...I just had my business degree from PSU.. I started a book comparison site and used the old javascript code that invited all the friends when they put it in the address bar...made 12k that month because page went viral..since then it has been fucking hell...so please believe 13 months isnt anything and people are struggling worst than you...ive tried everything...and have knowledge in almost everything...My advice to you is pick one thing and work at it..dont give up and move to the next..my biggest issue was that.. It bothers me though because some of the stuff people post about i can do for instance..I have a working click jack script and a full proof way to implement it...but i get the likes but cant figure out something that converts...tried downloads, cpa, fake facebook account hacker, apps etc and nothing catches on.. So overall focus on one thing..something that you have that gut instinct about that you believe can work and find a way to get it to work...takes creativity and something reading through these posts will give you ideas to add to the current scheme your working on..good luck

    This is how an avg day for me lookis like:

    Before i get to work i post on bhw.

    I work some good 4-5 hours in the morning, then take a break and continue to post on bhw.

    I get to eat or whatever then by 4pm or so i am back to work until 10pm or so, with small breaks in between, where i post in bhw.

    It might seem im too much time here in bhw, but i can tell you i daily work between 5-7 hours! Last year i couldnt get to work this long because of school, but this semester i temp dropped from school to try and conquer my im goal.

    I dont know, to be honest, if i am an idiot for keeping doing this after 1 year or so, but the only thing i know for sure is that i fail to earn at least $10/day by June, i will start a thread about my real life plans, as IM only serves me to get money i will fund in my inventions.

    By June, if i manage to fail jot even making $10/day, i will reveal eberything i know that can change this world in days. I am trying to get money through IM to fund these projects, but if i*fail by june, i will start a thread to seek someone interested in funding as after all IM is only a tool to get money.

    Check into BHW once a day before bed. Or once a week.
    You need to really kick yourself into gear. I know the feeling.

    If you've been working 5-7 hours a day for a year and you're not even making $10 a day then you're doing something terribly wrong.
    Its time to revise your strategy and find out where exactly you went wrong with it.

    By the way, what exactly are you doing 5-7 hours a day?

    The first step to figuring out what you're doing wrong is being real 100% honest with yourself. You know you're not working productively 5-7 hours per day. If you truly worked with focus for ~2000 hours without success, something is definitely wrong with you. Thats like doing the same shit over and over and expecting different results. Pick a method, tweak it, launch it, analyze results, tweak it some more, analyze results again, repeat.

    Thats exactly what i have been doing these last 12 months bro. Im not an idiot.
    These 5-7 hours i have worked on testing, changing lots of things but none have worked. You see, the first 5 months of 2013 i was on adult marketing and sent over 30k clicks to offers, my results? No leads and no sales. I tried over 400 landing pages, i tried many niches and failed miserably. Even AMs were shocked i sent so much traffic and didnt get a lead or sale...

    Since may/june of last year i have been trying to rank sites in google. I have always tried to target low-med competition kws. All my efforts from last year were utter waste. Maybe i gained experience, but with all i tried and worked my ass off, i couldnt even rank 1 site.

    You see, last year, by november, i said to myself, F school, i will focus on IM. So i did, so much i did that there were times i was from 10am to 1am working my ass with short breaks to eat and still didnt succeed...

    30k clicks across 400 different landing pages. wow. It's obviously not a problem with the offers/landing pages. It's very clearly the traffic source isn't compatible with the adult niche. Suddenly I'm not so surprised you're 2000 hours in with zero results. LOL. Try PPD + YT bro, its easy money and you can't fail.
