    Last year I started making a list of ideas that I failed at so I know which worked and which didn't .

    Now that I make money - I found the list and its interesting.

    This would be GOOD to see from others as their are alot of noobs on here - to show them

    How easy was it or how hard it was for you make money.

    My failed Idea list is at number 31

    I failed 31 times and It took me 1 year before I made serious money.

    I know its sad.lolllllll


    How many Ideas did you try and How Long did it take you to make money in IM?

    Honestly, it's been like a roller coaster for me. Started when I was 13. Only made $100 that whole year. I was mostly learning and reading then.

    From the ages of 14-15, I wasn't making much; just did some article writing for a while to have some pocket money.

    16-17, made around $2,000 a year; still learning a lot.

    18, made my first REAL income. $xx,xxx in 1 month. Pretty blackhat method.

    19 now, making around $100 a month. Concentrating on building up something that is whitehat, and long term.

    (17 right now) Started 4 months ago, 3 months reading, earned 240$ since last month up til today,... I have earned like 35$+ with Adsense and one website.

    But to be honest, I read to much, too afraid to take action & too lazy xD

    Meh, kind of disagree. Unless the idea is absolutely stupid, just about any method can "work". You just gotta make it work ;)

    slow and steady wins the race, and sorry but i take the long road, amazon and adsense are good business to use the right way and profit long term,. id seek a similar setup.

    DOn thats really great that you have been in it for the long haul.

    cool to see.

    At first I did methods one at a time and failed miserably for months - then I decided to try as many methods as i could and find the gems and then exploit - after doing that I found some real money makers

    Atta boy. Keep it up man! Just my advice; don't have TOO many methods going at once. It'll get hard to manage. Slow and steady!

    In the beginning I use to apply many methods at once and made some money outta that. Now using only 3 methods and have a steady income.
