    from 1 to 10 what would you give yourself and why?

    1 being someone who has not even made a cent online and is 100% clueless.


    10 being someone who makes more in a day than most make in a year and doesnt have to lift a finger to do it.




    me? 6/10


    the bulk of my points come from the fact that I have one method that I have studied inside and out, continue to grow, and slowly became something of an expert in over the years. I also know HTML and CSS and do some graphic design (I love photoshop). These skills help here and there.


    I lose points because I dont take enough initiative to learn more and try to use it. Instead of farting around I should use some free time to start learning and developing new methods. Once you get a good working method you should stick with it as best you can but you should not limit yourself too it. I do this and I know I have to manage my time better to study all that this business has to offer otherwise Im just missing out on the next big goldmine.

    I also have a lack of good programming skills. People who can design apps and bots and whatnot have a big advantage. They can build their own powerful tools. Actually thought about taking some prog. classes this summer.

    What about you?

    I'm probably about a 3/10, I'm definitely improving though I didn't have a clue when I first joined BHW

    I'd say a 4. I've got SEO figured out enough as to where I can make a good income and not have a 9-5 job.

    But I lack in all the other area's that I had wanted to excel at, PPC, PPV,

    PPC I have good campaigns and than bad ones. I always get discouraged though than i start thinking why pay for traffic when I always get it for free.

    PPV Tried it out quite a few times Tried 3-4 different campaigns with adbright (horrible place) has 0 luck whatsoever. Lost quite a bit as well. Tried MediaTraffic I'm a dummy and never set up proper tracking. made a lot of money Just not sure if it was through the SEO or the PPV. :/

    I think what would make myself feel like a 9/10 or a 10/10 would be to venture into those area's again and stick with it. Have income coming in from all 3 different perspective with multiple campaigns going with each.

    Yeah I was doing the PPC thing a year ago. Made some money but not much. I know more now than I did a year ago though so Im curious what I would be like if I gave it another shot.

    ah there arent enough hours in the day:(
