    Hello everyone :)

    I'm making this for a research I'm working on. And will post the results here - It'll be really useful to everyone here.

    I want you to HONESTLY answer the following 2 questions :

    1) How much did you make in 2011 in total from IM? (PROFIT)
    2) When did you start doing internet marketing?
    3) Are you doing internet marketing full time?
    4) Do you stick to 1 method and make it work (if possible)? Or you keep switching till you find the right method for you?
    5) What's your "Golden Advice" to newbies?

    Thanks all in advance. I will give thanks+rep as much as possible.

    P.S. I will publish this little research's results after 100 replies. (So we get as much accurate results as possible)

    1) How much did you make in 2011 in total from IM? (PROFIT)
    About $1000

    2) When did you start doing internet marketing?
    June 2011

    3) Are you doing internet marketing full time?
    No. In between school and sleep

    4) Do you stick to 1 method and make it work (if possible)? Or you keep switching till you find the right method for you?
    I try out multiple methods and stick to the ones that seem to be good for me, then I tweak them to perfection and replicate.

    5) What's your "Golden Advice" to newbies?

    Give yourself time to learn and do new stuff and never give up. Even if it takes you 3 years to get to that first $50-100 dollar a day mark.

    1) How much did you make in 2011 in total from IM? (PROFIT) - Around 10-12k, not much but in my country it's more than enough :)
    2) When did you start doing internet marketing? Idk if selling game and software pirates online is internet marketing, if yes then when I was 13, 3 years ago. If not, then 2010...
    3) Are you doing internet marketing full time? Well I'm still in school, but yes I guess...
    4) Do you stick to 1 method and make it work (if possible)? Or you keep switching till you find the right method for you? Right now, few methods but mostly automated, in free time I'm seeking for new methods
    5) What's your "Golden Advice" to newbies?
    Stop buying/downloading every single wso or software. Find one working method and stick to it..

    btw OP why don't you put your answers :)

    1) About 3K, started in summer, due to exams.
    2) 2 Years ago. At age 16
    3) Only in my spare time. But unfortunately, it's not enough, and I can't do anything about it.
    4) I used to switch methods every day. But now, sticking to one, just scaling up.
    5) Stick to one method. No method can be oversaturated. Never!

    1) How much did you make in 2011 in total from IM? (PROFIT)
    I made BANK... looking into purchasing a McDonalds soon.
    2) When did you start doing internet marketing?
    January 2011... about a year ago.
    3) Are you doing internet marketing full time?
    I use to work for MTV and was doing IM part time.
    Now I sold most of my campaigns and going to focus on
    another franchise business I just bought. I will still do IM but more SEO stuff..... less paid traffic stuff.
    4) Do you stick to 1 method and make it work (if possible)? Or you keep switching till you find the right method for you?
    I review 100s of methods...read every WSO/method/tips shared on BHW ... even stuff that I did not think I would do....then try the one that I think might work. In the end... I used tips from other methods to make my method work.

    5) What's your "Golden Advice" to newbies?

    Every system has a weakness. Leveraging that weakness is the key to making money.
    Find a system.... infect it.... study it.... learn its weakness.... then exploit it..... make bank.

    Be ready to fail.... and fail again... it's part of the game.

    1) How much did you make in 2011 in total from IM? (PROFIT)
    Made about $1,310 since April 2011.

    2) When did you start doing internet marketing?
    April 21st, 2011
    Decided I was going to make a living online. Ultimate freedom!

    3) Are you doing internet marketing full time?
    Not yet. Working part-time in retail. I'm making my way there.

    4) Do you stick to 1 method and make it work (if possible)? Or you keep switching till you find the right method for you?
    During my first three months or so I didn't even stick to a method long enough to implement it. Around July I finally invested into an Internet Marketing tool. That tool made me $120, my first real month of earnings. Not until about last month is when I finally was able to decide on which methods I want to stick to.

    5) What's your "Golden Advice" to newbies?

    1. TAKE ACTION! Stick to one or two methods at first. Ignore all others until after you're making money with them.

    2. Communicate with people. Just posting on the forums will help you personally as it helps me organize my thoughts and ideas, as well as gain ideas from others as well!

    3. Don't expect income until after six months, even with the simplest methods. Keep that mindset so you can focus on a project knowing you shouldn't see any income for a while (ESPECIALLY niche sites).

    6 months is A LOT of time...depends on your knowledge and skills i will say.One can make BANK in less than a week/even few days/,assuming he is starting now and is well prepared,while others will struggle with obsolete,old,WSO methods and fail in the end/even after 6 months/
    I will use this post to personally thank to everyone,who is sharing great information here totally for free!
    There are still some misconceptions,shit threads,posted from time to time,but for a matter of fact,BHW is where everything begins!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!

    1) How much did you make in 2011 in total from IM? (PROFIT)
    2011 isn't over yet but bout 6-7k and invested HEAVILY in domains,content, linkbuilding, and Flippa sites that I could fix.
    2) When did you start doing internet marketing?
    1986 :rolleyes: Jan. 2009
    3) Are you doing internet marketing full time?
    Yes, but this year been busy with other stuff so maybe 3 months full work.
    4) Do you stick to 1 method and make it work (if possible)? Or you keep switching till you find the right method for you?
    I stick to what works for me. (but open to suggestions):)
    5) What's your "Golden Advice" to newbies?
    start small, make money, rinse and repeat, use the profit to target bigger niches.
    Remember 99% of people make peanuts or nothing, being the 1% is hard but worth it.
    And try to keep off forums when you should be working...

    dont be afraid to spend money. I was always cheap and never bought a shit always tried to spend the least i can. On one of my site i went full on and spent over 1k in seo and i hit big because of it. Not saying go spend 1k on seo but start small and if you see sales go full on.
