    Hi guys

    Pretty new to the whole IM thing, but a burning need to learn and succeed at this to be able to supplement my income. Job situation in the UK is pretty dire right now and I've decided I need to take my destiny in to my own hands.

    This place seems like a good place to learn and share.

    Thanks

    Slim

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys

    Hedgy - I've been reading for what seems like the last 3 weeks straight! There is so much conflicting and contradictory info out there when it comes to making a quid or two online. Every method or guru rubbishing what I'd just read as the right way.

    Hopefully this forum offers some real truths about what really works.

    Got a few domains, ready to buy hosting and then no doubt will have plenty of noob questions to annoy people with!

    Yes there are quite a lot of self confessed, know all gurus who actually know fuck all and spend most of their sad lives bashing threads. To find something which works, you just have to try, and try hard, not just give it a little go. Good luck.

    Hi there, I'm also new here and also agree about the gurus rubbishing everything. My advice would be, don't be too gunshy, there are plenty of things I have found that DO work, that won't suddenly get you kicked out of Google like these 'gurus' try and make out will happen. Just tread carefully and do things naturally and steadly and you'll be fine, don't be afraid to try things though is definitely my motto.

    Hey Slim_P, i am a UK goer myself, around 1.5 years ago I took the plunge and went into IM fulltime, Now i must say to you i will never regret it man, It was the greatest thing I could have ever done!

    Good luck to you in your journey and I am sure if you focus and apply yourself instead of reading thousands of methods, then you will succeed,

    Bonzo

    The reason why lots of info is contradictory is that what will work for my website might not work for yours and vice-versa. The best thing to do is indeed research, and split test different methods, then just do whatever works for you.

    Feel free to ask questions, the only questions which people find annoying here are "how can I make money online?", "please help me make money online", "wut iz black hat SEO?" ... etc.. you get the gist. Noob questions are fine as long as they are smart questions ;) . Also , you can read the stickies in each subforum, they have amazingly comprehensive info in them..

    I knew i made the right choice in choosing this forum over another.

    there seems to be a common thread to everyones comments; that of taking action. that is hte part of the puzzle that has thus far been lacking.

    I came across IM as a method of earning through a friend at a time when I need alternate income streams. It was when he shared some numbers of his own that it really opened my eyes to what is possible. That was around a month ago. Now, I have no illusions about this game being easy, its like any other industry, I get that. And my friend has a background in that industry, technical and creative, a bigger knowledge base. I, on the other hand have no experience in the field other than using the internet like 99% of people do. I've run bricks and mortar businesses before and done well with them. but the technical side of this stuff can be very confusing.

    To this end I am trying to learn html and css, very, very slowly. Although this is more for the sake of learning something new.

    Right now I have a few domains but no hosting.

    I have not yet made any money online.

    Giorgio_B - Fair point about testing what works for you.

    bonzo90 - I hope someday to be able to quit my day job and go full time. Right now, that seems a long way away.

    mickyfu - Thanks for that comment. Its refreshing to hear someone say that more stuff works than not. I'm wracked by fears of being too late to the party. P.s I'm not a million miles from the Mersey myself.

    In the pursuit of making hosting money I've taken some action on a postloop method i read here. The earnings are still currently zero but I'm putting a twist on the method which requires a site, my very first in fact. Anyone, feel free to shout out any other similar methods which don't require a site that I could use to scrape together hosting pennies. Or know anywhere i could get free hosting for a simple html site on a domain i own?

    I'm sticking to straighforward, idiot-proof things that i can do to earn my first dollar online. I realise that is nothing to some people here but I'm quite a sceptical person at heart so i've set myself a challenge. There is a £15 item on my amazon wishlist. The day that item lands on my doorstep paid for by money made online will be the convincer on whether I spend more time pursuing this.
    Right now I'm time heavy and resource light. Plenty time, no dinero! :violin:

    Thanks for the encouragement people.

    Slim
