    Even though I enjoy marketing and throw in some blackhat tactics here and there, if I don't get results I start to lose hope :(. And you know what result you get when you give up, nutting, nada!

    So, during the tough times what do you do to keep yourself motivated, energetic, and inspired to stick to your money making efforts?

    Thanks a bunch guys.

    I dont like giving up and I see the amount I am making growing weekly so that is fun to me.
    Nothing much but it is growing.
    I think the problem was I am in a few link building programs and 2 lots of hosting accounts one with 15 diff c class ips and I wanted to be making money not paying it out so much. So I was always wary of over commiting as any defecit was coming out of my wages.
    Well what I have realised is
    1 stop downloading every guaranteed make $xxxxxxxxx tomorrow
    as all you do is read through 3 to 50 pages of an ebook stuffed full of affiliate links
    2 find a method you can use with your budget and expertice
    me it was autoblogs (slightly different a few autoblogs and mostly targetted niches 3 or 4 pages)
    3 keyword research (wasting your time if you are going head to head with 500000000 other sites MNF)
    4 I know it is hard at the start but when you have found those keywords buy the domain
    (25 .com domains at domainmonster is about £125 not sure exactly sounds a lot but you have just improved your chances of succeeding 1000% )
    5 install wp site + plugins
    (more than enough posts on this check out shylesons thats not correct but will edit this after posting)
    6 see what pages your competition has and or ezine and rewrite them
    (I bought power article rewriter somewher on here its an offer of about $47 well worth it)
    7 find whatever way to link to them loads of posts on here
    8 then once the money starts coming in escalate outsource
    (now getting my articles written $1.5 for a page basically each click is worth $2-3 and the page wont go away also social bookmarking being done in the next few weeks )
    Dont buy ebooks or anything else offered by gurus
    (till that $147 for the latest get rich quick scheme does not matter to you)
    just keep scaling up
    If 4 sites make me $4 a day that would cover my different costs say $120
    but my costs stay the same if I have 50 sites (apart from buying domain names)
    but 50 sites making $50 a day is a big difference to profit and so on

    anyway going back to my beer now :drinking2 so if this does not make sense just ignore it

    Great info boro. true3000 I really like how you force yourself to work for someone else.

    After reading both of your comments I realized, whatever I was doing really was for myself (selfish, i know). However, I never really liked losing.

    So, I just made a chart with two columns, one says Wins and the other says Loss.

    If I don't feel like doing something that needs to be done, I will put a check on Loss and if I get it done I will put a check on Win.

    Basically, I am treating every work as a matter of Win or Lose in life, to keep me pumped up.

    I am sure others would love to know about your methods.
