Hi everyone, First of all I will apologize for my 'bad' English, since it's not my first language. It feels like ages ago when I first got here. You can see in my profile when I joined BHW. I did not post a lot, but I read a lot of the topics here. A lot of great information. Thanks everyone for all the comments. Even though you probably don't know it, you guys helped me a lot. Today I Google'd something and stumped upon BHW. Since I was 'once' a newbie, who was struggling to make money online, just like you, I feel the urge to post this thread. Just to show that it is possible to come from nothing and make money on the internet. It is a story of almost five years, but I made it. I'm not yet where I want to be, but I manage to make a stable 10.000 euro's per month on the internet. I tried a lot of things. Niche websites, pure black hat SEO, building websites for company's nearby, started a directory website etc etc. When I joined BHW I worked for a company where I did the marketing. This all went good 'till a new co-worker joined, and he was constantly bullshitting me. Everything I did was wrong, he felt like he was the best and was constantly irritating. That's when I started to look for information about making money online. In the day I was working for the company, and at night I was building my online business. I did not sleep much, I was constantly working, building and doing everything I could to make a living from the internet. I started some niche websites. I worked 2 months to finally be able to make 1,- euro from Google AdSense. I remember being super happy... I had finally made money from the internet. I knew that if I could make 1,- euro, I could me 10... 100... 1000... and even 10.000 euro's. So I was constantly writing new content for my niche telecom website and started building another website in which I wanted to make money with affiliate marketing. The payout for the offer was 30,- euro, so that was far more interesting than Google AdSense. In about 7-8 months I was able to make 600,- euro's for both of the sites (per month) and I decided to start selling them. I made 5000,- euro's from them both, which felt like a huge victory. I made 5K from the internet! That's when I quit my job and started building my own business. Everybody in my family, my friends and all, were negative. I don't know if it was because they didn't want me to succeed or to warm me, but nobody believed in me. But my dream was to large. I wanted to make money online so bad. I wanted to make a passive income from the internet, just make money from my laptop, so I could make money everywhere and have complete freedom. That's when I started my own website in which i started to document my journey on how to make money. In the meantime I started a few affiliate websites in which I compare iPhone prizes... all traffic via SEO, but this was proven for me to work, so why not. After a year I had build a bit of a fanbase on my own website. I had around 100 visitors per day and my mailinglist was growing. Don't get me wrong... it was a lot of testing, tweaking and failing for me to reach and build a mailinglist. It went very slow in the start. From 1 subscriber in 2 weeks, to around 50 subscribers per day which I have now (all organic). The KEY is to always keep going. Never give up. Even when you feel like it's going nowhere and you're doing everything for nothing... always keep on going! Maybe try different things, but keep moving closer to your goal. When I had a mailinglist from about 500 leads I decided to bring out my first information product. It was a video course in which I explained how I made money from the internet with my affiliate websites. I remember telling a good friend that I would make 10.000 euro's that day. I was so sure of myself.. I launched the product and made 0,- euro's. I was so close to quitting that day, but I didn't do it. I learned from my mistakes and tried again. The next launch I made around 5.000 euro. Not the goal in which I was hoping for, but more money than most of the people make in one month. I built and built and my website and authority kept on growing. I launched another product and that did better then the previous one. Next I launched another one, and that's my evergreen product now. It's going really well. I have a nice funnel which brings me a constant 10.000 euro's per month (recurring payments). It maybe sounds like this all went without failure, but don't think that. I have failed more then I can imagine or remember. But I like it and I encourage you to keep on trying and failing. As long as you'll learn from it. Then it's never failing. Making money online is hard when you start. Your first dollar will be the hardest you will ever make. But when you see that it's possible for you, you will be hooked and you will make more money. It's a matter of keep going and never, never give up. I know it's so cliché to say this, but it's the simple truth. Never give up. My goal is to make 20.000 euro (stable) in 2017, so I'm nowhere where I want to be. But I'm going to make it. All my friends and family who laughed at me when I started are now asking how I make that much money. Some are jealous, some are happy for me. The negative friends and family were my biggest motivation. They were the reason I succeed because I want to show to them "how great I am". So for all you struggling members I say to you: it's a great time to be alive. You can literally make money from home. From a restaurant. From a beach. It's possible for everyone. Not only for the riches. I come from nothing. 4 years ago I made 1250,- euro's per month working for 8 to 6 in a shitty office. Now I'm making around 10.000 euro's per month working from everywhere I want and mostly spending 1-2 hours a day working. I say this because it's possible if you really want to. All the information is here. On the internet. On BHW. On Google. Start with it and continu till you get there. Read. Try. Fail. Try again. Fail. Try again and succeed. I remember reading these kinds of "succes posts" on BHW when I first started and dreamed about ever making money on the internet. Now I'm posting this story and hope to inspire you all. It is possible. Now go and make your dream come true. Never give up. Be GREAT!
