    Hello, everyone!
    I didn't know where to post this, so I decided this could be a good place. I am currently activly struggling to establish a constant income so at the end of the month I make at least 1000 dollars. I keep trying different methods. Already getting some (but petty lol) money from affiliate marketing, got some cents from AC, some 10 dollars from CJ, but all in all it sucks. I've been on bhw for about 3 weeks, and doing AM for about 3 months. Lots of time I've spent just reading ebooks and forums. I still feel like a total noob when I read how much money people are making here on bhw, so I wanted to ask you - how long did it take you until you started making, let's say, 100$ a day constantly?

    SMB,

    The sad truth is out of the 17,000 members on this forum, I would estimate that maybe only 150-200 are bringing in a $100/day or more. However, there are some that won't get out of bed for anything under $5000/day.

    The real key is to find one avenue that interests you and stay with it until you find how to make a daily auto income with it. I would suggest shooting for something a bit more modest such as $10/day on autopilot. Once you have that knowledge, you can then replicate it over and over again until you're bringing in $1000s a day. That's when you can then pursue different sources of income.

    You could try blogs with AdSense/affiliate links
    CPA marketing
    eBay affiliate marketing
    eWhoring

    The key is to just find what interests you and stick with it, stop reading. and start doing.

    YAYYYYY I'm in the 200 "elite" members making $100 a day! :p

    Took me 3 months of working 4-5 hours everyday, trying everything I found.

    It took me about 6 months to understand I had the wrong mindset and the wrong tools. But once I did, I literally when from just scraping by to a daily $x,xxx.xx overnight.

    One quick tip, find something that works then automate it, then replicate, over and over and over

    Wow - you think that there are only 200 making $100 / day? I would have though that a couple of thousand, at least. Why hang around a board if you couldn't put it to good use? I would think that people would tire after a period of no progress and move on to some other pipe dream.

    Maybe a poll is in order...

    I think fundamentaly a lot of people lie about their income as a means to seem more reputable or simply not be seen as a failure.

    I also believe more than 50% of this forum are non-active members. If a couple thousand members were making more than $100/day, then there would (1) be 1 member making over $100/day for every 7 that are not, and (2.) there would be a lot more sharing of better methods rather than eWhoring and not really great methods.

    I would go out on a limb even further and say that I bet close to half the people who have bought proven money making systems on this forum (Greed/Dom, Blackbook, Boomerscripts, Attack) are not using them.

    The first step you can take towards reaching your destination is taking the first step.

    Well, I am currently trying to master youtube+cpa/affiliate marketing method, but keep failing because people view my vids only for first few hours, and the traffic doesn't convert well. I guess it wouldn't be a problem if I could upload 500 vids a day like some here do, but I am not that advanced yet lol. I want to stick to one method for a change not just jump to next big thing like I did before. I hope I will succeed at this :)

    You're half way there already. I wold suggest leaving alone all of the other sections in this forum and become a master of the Youtube section. Even some of our mods make a pretty penny with Yourtube marketing so there is a ton of knowlesge and wealth to be had.

    Find which programs are the best to make/watermark videos, how to insert the thumbnail, what offers convert best, what promotion program will get you the views and comments you need etc.

    Become the go to guy in Youtube marketing, and then you will have people Pming you in no time asking for help. You can then trade ideas about other methods with members who are knowledgeable there, and so on.

    Just don't give up, even if you have to work a day job, put the hours in at night. Before long you'll be handing in your 2 weeks notice with a smug smile only Blacks Hatters can appreciate.

    I joined here in Jan 08 before that I was making a couple of dollars a day 2 to 10.

    by Mar 08 I was making anywhere from 25 to 50. Now I'm currently well over 100 a day and growing.

    ximscreamingx - Like you said it takes a while to find what works for you. Things that work for some don't work for all.

    There were times I would crawl out of bed at 5AM after 2 hours of sleep and wonder why Im killing myself staying up late working on this stuff. But trust me persistence pays off. BIG TIME!

    Well, work isn't a problem as I am a student. However, I want to start earning some decent money because my mother will be leaving her job soon and I don't want her to worry about providing family with money anymore. I am old enough to start doing it and while I could get a part-time job like most of students, I would hate to work in an office for half a day for pennies as currently our country is hurting from inflation and economical crysis. I see huge potential in all this blackhat thing and youtube, and I want to master it as fast as possible. I am already working with some members here, and actually I don't want to dissapoint them, too, so I am not going to be a noob in their eyes. Thank you for encouragement, X. I will keep on fighting :)

    I'm not at $100 a day but I went live with my website only about 3 months ago and pretty much took an active role in internet marketing with the launch of my site. first 2 months I spent learning. reading everything I could and just absorbing it. Wasn't until about 3 weeks ago that I put things into action. results have been small but results none the less and more importantly increasing results. one day $0.25 then $0.45 then $0.90 etc. focus on going from $1 to $2 then $2 to $3 not from $1 to $100.

    For me I read data. Analyze the shit out of it traffic patterns, visitors a day, what kind of marketing I'm doing from day to day to see what works and what doesnt. And I set benchmarks. Weekly benchmarks. Every week I expect to have increases...if I don't see increases....I work twice as hard that week and figure out whats not working or what I need to be doing more of. It really just requires discipline and patience as far as I can tell...

    CPA is probably the fastest way you can start making a lot of money, so read

    every thing you can about it, check out some of Harro's posts also, if you can't

    make money with that info, then you might need to reevaluate if IM is for you...

    For me, I am only really just making about $100 a day now, and its still not that

    consistent, and i have been in the game seriously for about 6 months now.

    The only way you can fail is to give up.

    All the best

    find a niche and build your own business!

    working for others ain't the way to go...

    I know, I actually have ideas which would be "my business, but they all need investments, which I don't have ...yet
