    I just thought to myself, some of these method posts have 100k views... how many freakin' people have tried these methods??? Doesn't it create so much competition that the method is no longer profitable or as profitable as it could have originally been?

    1% of the people take action so don't worry about that, don't find excuses and start working with one of the methods...
    Beside this 100k views is nothing compared to the BIG IM MARKET. Possibilities are endless, maybe you can add a little own twist to the method and become unique.

    Most people who read those threads will think just like you and will never try those methods.

    Depending on the method that's why most of them don't work anymore.

    Well said. I would say since you now are working with 4 methods, keep working with them and set up some mild split testing while you advance through the stages. After that start pushing out the split tests that didn't work while continuing to test and try new methods once you have enough data to analyze.

    It is safe to assume that everyone takes action, but all in there mind. The only way something works is if it is out there physically.

    Some methods do get saturated, but there are many ways to skin a cat. Any method can be twisted no matter how saturated it may be. I have tried sooo many methods that have failed but there is always something you learn from each failure and eventually if you try enough you'll naturally pick up enough knowledge along the way to make something click.

    there is a really sweet method cooking over in the Jr Vip section. Just finished watching the tutorial videos and now looking into applicable things I need to set it all up. I read a lot of methods too but only try about 1 out of ever 10 good ones.

    It's a big old planet and BHW membership is spread all over it...even if you live in a very big city the chances are that even if someone else is trying that offline method there's still capacity for you to grab a slice.

    The point of IM is not to be spoonfed and follow a method exactly. You have to be creative and put your own spin on methods that you find on BHW. That's how IM is supposed to work, so in theory, a method will never get over-saturated.

    You're making no sense buddy. Everything that's saturated is making the biggest money, thanks to be being saturated.
    Saturated = Competition, do painters quit just because someone else has already sold paintings?
    NO.
    Your competition is the most helpful thing in the world. You get to find where they suck and do it better. No need to reinvent the wheel, just make it roll smoother.

    This 1000 times over. It sounds cliche as hell but it's the truth. You have to create, act & persist.

    When it gets saturated, the marketing part sucks, because many just take the method and burn the market with aggressive/nonsensical methods that create scepticism in potential clients.
    Still, the method itself may work very well, especially if it's smartly adjusted to location, niche and whatever circumstances.
    So basically, if there is saturation, the difficult part is getting started with a client, then, if you're professional and capable, it can definitely still work.
    It's the marketing part that gets easily saturated, not necessarily the work itself!
