    Hey guys,

    This question have been crossing my mind for a while, I'm really curious and have to ask here.

    Do you specialize in many parts of IM or just focus on ONE subject at a time ?

    If the question isn't clear enough, I'll give you an example.

    Let's say, if you're good at SEO, PPC and Media, which one would you spend most time on ?

    That's just a rough example, I wanna know, do you try to do "a lot" of things or be an expert in one field ?

    I think blowing your time on one direction is a way more profitable, it's rather good to do SEO than Youtube and Affiliate stuff together.

    Post what you think and more importantly how you do it.

    It's an interesting matter, I haven't had mentioned it before.

    I think sticking with something is the best you can do!

    For example if i see SEO brings me the best money with the lowest work possible then i am going to stick with it and master it as much as possible.

    Now at the other hand there are two questions.
    Is SEO (seo is just an example put here whatever you do) a solid income stream? Maybe its not a longterm project?

    In my opinion the best you can do is master some things and then with these things fund bigger and more solid projects :)
    Thats what i am trying to do.
    You are getting burned sometimes but nothing is easy :)

    I'm specialize in 2 things only, but I know a little of everything else.
    Regarding your second question, I recommend you to find something that make some money but also makes you feel high when you win:pirate14:

    you need to know a bit of everything. and then just focus on one all the way. knowing a bit of everything is good because then you can make certain minor edits or changes yourself instead of having to wait and call up a designer/coder/etc just to fix simple things

    Focusing on one thing at a time is the best thing to do. Jumping from one thing to another is a waste of time. And that's very easy to do using money making methods from BHW. There's so many methods and so little time.

    Technically, I started in website design. At the same time, I was developing fb pages and bombing them with CPA leads. Photoshop came natural to me for some reason, Illustrator too. Then I moved on to SEO. I also experimented/made good money with youtube and amazon. In my opinion if you don't have 3 or 4 things going, or something that makes a good amount of ROI each month with money stashed just in case, you run the risk of failure.

    For me It's better to be get master in one subject
    rather than being a jack of all traits.

    a little bit of everything is fine, it'll come naturally with being an IMer.

    Lol my sick mind...

    Back to the topic though, I know people say don't keep all your eggs in one basket, but I think that's only true to an extent. I say do what works for you, and experiment with other methods when you can afford it.

    Here is my experience.

    I started with selling /reselling and outsourcing , now it brings me income and i profit from it pretty well.


    Now i am learing SEO and AdSense websites , I use cash for my websites , after that i will go to another part.


    I like many areas in IM so good thing is do what you like and when you master it jump on something else beacuse remember that you need diverse also in offline investments.

    That's completely irrelevant, it's not about methods, in our case, it's more about payments. ))

    You need to spend time on more than 1 thing or you will eventually mess up. I put all my time into one affiliate site and guess what, google got it! I learned my lesson and launched 5 more sites.

    It depends on what type of person you are. Most people here focus on methods, instead of being businessmen and creating businesses based on the needs of the market.

    I'm the type that could go in every industry and create a business and hire people smarter than me in this industry, i don't specialize in anything, but knowledgeable in all of those fields.

    Again, if you do SEO, it means you do yourself SEO and not hire someone, better not try to think like an employee like most people in IM, and i hate the term " IM ", for me it's just online business.

    But most people here want to work for someone or follow a method, you will NEVER get rich with this path, never ever. Better specialize in delegating talent/ management.
