    I started making adult free sites and submitting them to link lists like link-o-rama.com around 2001 and it went from there. Probably took me about 3 months to learn how to build a site from scratch, submit a few of them and finally make that first precious sale ($35 for an ARS site). I remember it felt like Christmas. :)

    honestly? About a year.

    Lack of focus and waaay too muuch "throw it against the wall and see if it sticks"iness.

    Find one thing and stick to it, even when the rest of the IM world seems to move on. When theey do, it just means less competition for you.

    edit: erh... that's for the noobs out there. lol

    Still working on it man! It's been barely a month, so I'm hoping to be making some $$$$ soon. This way I can write one of these "how I made ..." posts!:)

    I started my IM career with poker affiliate and made my first CPA conversion after a month or so (75$). And it was the best feeling in my IM life so far :)

    Created a micro niche site, and about 6 months later it finally ranked on the first page (I didn't work very hard). That's when it started bringing in money.

    I used a cracked version of Market Samurai to do the keyword research for the site. I saved up all the money I earned from that site and the moment I had $99, I went over and bought Market Samurai. I think this is something extremely important for the community to do. Developers work hard on their software and they lose a ton of money when it gets cracked. If you make money on a cracked software, please buy it.

    Now I'm simpling creating more micro niche sites, trying different competition levels and different TLD's to see what sticks and what doesn't. Averaging about $1-$2 per day and should receive my first adsense check next month. My primary income from the sites is through Amazon Associates.

    It took me 3 months. Fiverr was the behind my success. Started with $0. I use to sell 150 fb fans on fiverr for 5$. Made some good money and then I bought Scrapebox. From then there was no looking back.

    This is one of my favorite posts on BHW.
    Guys, let's support the software devs.

    It can be fun to have cracked software, but it's more fun to have updates and improvements!
