This is for anyone who made even $1 in IM
Where would you suggest to start?
I'd say.. start with the basics.. like article writing. Stay focused on it until you see results.
If you ignore the basics like I did and go after the easy methods that bring short term income you'll get 'spoiled' and not want to go back to the basics, searching for that magic button. I wasted a lot of time doing this. So that's my opinion.
Always start with the basics. You can't become a pro basketball player without first not knowing how to dribble the ball. Start from the bottom and work your way up. There are no shortcuts in life.
I started with share*cash and now I'm experimenting with ewhoring
What are the basics?
I'd say.. start with Article marketing!
Do you know how to build websites? That would be the 1st place to start I would think.
How do you have 182 posts on here and are still this lost? ::
I got into IM from blogging, so article writing / marketing is probably the best way to go, just keep posting/reading/learning and you'll find a good method, then twist it, then you'll be earning some money, but just about anyone can market articles.
I'd agree, article marketing is the simplest and requires no money to get started. Takes longer than others and not very exciting but it works if you're consistent and patient.
I would also say that article marketing is the easiest one for getting started!!!If you r thinking for the sales and traffic and all then that's too far buddy!!!!
Hmm... I tried to find what Article Marketing is all about, but can't find on it...
It seems to me that Article marketing is writing articles and submitting them? =/ Or am I wrong?
I would start with article writing - AC and the such. Then more to social networking and clickbank, like Twitter and FB.
Oooh Okay, yeah, that is what I'm doing right now at Ezine!
Although I'm not targgeting any keywords or anything
I'm writty poor quality articles (250 words) just so I can submit it to ezine, JUST so I can have a high PR backlink to my site
yeah but you gotta add backlinks to articles too. If you look around the BHW forum you can find some of angelas backlinks or pauls for free (my opinion this is the best for beginners).
With your articles you should target keywords to bring in targeted traffic to your page and not just anyone.
Correct me if im wrong anyone but yeah.
Hope that helps (im doing article marketing atm too and thats what ive learnt so far.)
Craigslist is easy, and costs nothing upfront if your the one doing the posting. Eventually you can outsource and buy products to automate it, but its a good start.
Ewhore is a close second, with CL that is.
A year ago I was an account manager for a (drum roll) a pipe manufacturing company. Not exactly what I dreamed of when I was growing up. The job I had before that, I used to work in at a mortgage company. That job I did like. Initially I was one of the processors and then started working in the sales department. That was really exciting 5-6 years ago. I was trying to learn the ropes as a salesperson and then eventually I really did start to make some money. I was doing well 3-4 years ago. Then as you know the mortgage industry just took a huge down turn. Along with every other industry and jobs available.
So, I took an extremely low paying job as an account manager at a pipe manufacturing company. This time I did have a slight base pay at the company. I was selling something that I was not particularly excited about and made a small commission. My wife eventually lost her job so we had to move from our small apartment to an even smaller apartment.
Credit cards started to max out. Pulling even more cash out of other cards just to make another credit card's minimum payment. We initially owed around $12,000 which was not too good to start with. However, even though we had made our minimum monthly payment every month with all the interest fees and late payments our balance never went down. Within a year and a half we went from being in a little debt to an extreme amount of $33,500 in debt. Our monthly payment exceeded $800 a month and the balance was not going down at all. We did not know what to do. Our rent alone was $1200 a month, meanwhile our credit card bill was over $800. And out of the $800 minimum payment that we were making, most of it was going to all the interest and fees. We never got to go out for dinner or do anything fun anymore.
I've always seen internet offers all the time talking about some great business opportunity. I always wondered if any of that stuff really worked. Things that are supposed to make you millions of dollars instantly. Spam, scam emails about sending someone out of the country your personal information so that a president of a bank can send you $10 million dollars next week, a stock that you never heard of becoming the next Microsoft, trying to get you to sell anything under the sun. I even constantly read emails about the government giving away free grant money. Like the country is any shape to just give money away to us. I did not have the money or the time to waste on scams and stuff that just does not work.
I realized the best thing to do is instead of hoping if a company that you are looking at, is going to be around tomorrow. The best thing to do is just go with a big, reputable company. After looking at several different companies, I had one that is real and legit. So are you ready to find out what I discovered and benefit? Read on.
Google - How can you go wrong with a company that is publicly traded on the stock market. That fact alone made me and my wife feel at ease, when I went ahead and got that program. I knew that a company like Google was solid and the opportunity to make money with them could not have been a bunch of BS.
To make a long story short on my result of Google is that within four weeks, I was generating $5,500 a month at home. All I do is post the links Google gave me. I don't even have to sell anything. Did you read that? Yes, no one actually needs to buy anything from you, me or Google. Just post the website links and get paid. You can do the same and they are looking for a bunch of people to do that for them independant from them.
oh wait. nvm. jk
Hey, that method is only $1 to get started!
Lol. that was beatiful
Sir... Here is my chequebook.. write any number and I will sign it because I want whatever that is you're selling
Oh, nOOby! That was just plain cruel! (AND FUNNY AS HELL!!!) Muah ha ha ha...
Also, remember. Rome wasn't built in a day so don't expect too much right at the beginning.
