    Hey, I am a newbie in bhw but loved the forum and generosity of bhw members in terms of contribution from fellow members. There are so many members who give away knowledge without looking for anything in return.

    Just to brief about, I was in a typo 9-5 job in a reputed industry till last year. Worked in a baking, real estate in a respectable position in most admired companies. Last year, got fired due to economy slowdown and decided to ditch 9-5.

    I had 2 option to make a career, which always fascinated me

    (1) Stock market (trading as well advisory)
    (2) Blog/internet marketing

    Picked up the first option but started as a trader. developed a system and everything was perfect but I could not make any money in the first 8 month (not lost also). It was just flat... Was so frustrated that could not start advisory company

    Have a family and kid too.. so can not take chance for long. So shifted to online stuff... Studied hard last 1-2 months and from today starting my career in Internet marketing as well blogging for money.

    Lets see how it goes and let me tell you guys I don't have any other option than getting a success.. Otherwise how I will live.... how my family will live

    So will keep you guys updated with my success stories. WISH ME A GOOD LUCK

    Best advice I would give you to do some research on AC and start with it, pony up get some articles written and submit, do it until you reach $60or 70, which should not take more than a week if you do 5-10 articles a day then use the money to pay freelancers to rewrite the articles. You should be upto $50/day at least, in no time. BUy some domains, then, setup micro niche adsnese sites, this thread here should show you all you will need. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ry-reach-my-goal-300-adsense-niche-sites.html

    Each of these niche sites, if done correctly would make $1-2 a day on average and with very little mantainence. You can also flip them a month later for around $100 each, if u can get it to make $1/day, which shouldnt be too hard. Stay away from CPA for the time being, I would say. Focus on building a whitehat model first, get at least $1k in your pocket, then move onto other ventures like article marketing etc etc. GOod luck, hope it helps..Feel free to pm me if you need to ask anything.

    Another route, all free, is to find a decent clickbank product. A little research will need to be done, but think of a problem people want an answer or fix to right away. Like people who try to figure out who just called them (reverse phone look up), etc....

    Once you have a product, then setup a squidoo site, and use your new clickbank product on the squidoo site. Set up the squidoo site to be interactive and to answer the questions people might have about the product.

    Send the traffic from the squidoo site directly to the clickbank product.

    In order to get the traffic to the squidoo site in the first place, use ezinearticles, youtube, etc....

    Find the phrases people are searching for, which would lead them to your product. Then pound the articles. EZA is the best article site (IMO) for sending traffic to your landing pages.

    This should be a good starting place. And honestly, is not a bad business plan all together.

    I say you should try to look for a job first. Do IM at night and don't quit your job until you IM income is more than your 9-5 job.
    I know I might sound pessimistic but I'm just realistic. You've got a kid and a wife, that's some pretty big responsibilities you got there. Don't wait for the time that you're wife will nag you (you're probably in this stage already) and force her to leave you. I'm just very concerned about your situation. Always have a financial safety net if you are already a married or soon to be married man.
    Goodluck on your path bro..

    be logical about your decisions and do not get carried away by techniques in IM promising you thousands of dollars per day. Even if these courses works, it will still take you some time before you can master the techniques. Like in writing articles for example, there are ways to write effectively to make readers follow you to your landing page, to be able to write persuasively takes a lot of practice and study ( rarely do you find a naturally persuasive writer).
    At present, you need to have food on the table for your family and keep them alive...that should be your first priority IMO.:)
    Use your time at night practicing and applying the techniques in IM. You've learned the basics in the past 2 months anyway...

    Thanks for your kind advise. But thought to tell you few more points:

    - Though I never took online career seriously and starting it up now, but I am not new to this line
    - I used to do this alongside my regular job 3-4 years back. But was not so focused. I used to promote CPA offers like free trial, email submit etc
    - I did it just for fun but If i remember, I earned more than $5k in two and half months of time :).

    Apart from this
    - Job market is not so good even at this point of time. SO getting a job will not be easy. And I used to get hefty sum, so i need to wait for right offer (even if i wanna do job)
    - I don't have time because as I said I am totally broke.. So need to make quick bucks in a month time (may be 15 days grace). Otherwise i will have to see dirty face of life :(
    - I really dont want to do job because I never aspired to be in that. But somehow got carried way. After long time, I decided to do what I want to do.

    nice:):) so you should do what you did in the past to generate that 5k in two months, but this time, try to do it in 14 days:)
    Goodluck bro...

    Thanks but this time I am taking it differently. The reason is simple.. Earlier I was just doing to make quick bucks and fun and this time I am making it for quick buck and establishing a base for future.

    In the last 5 years, I have done lot of free services for my friends in terms of making a blog / setting up autoblog / backlinks building / Directory submission / Social bookmarking stuff etc and they have hugely benefited out of my free services.. SO now I am going to do all the stuff for myself.

    Thanks for encouragement

    Its these ones that I can't imagine. All the best of luck to you. That all is a major driving force and its people like you who make a big impact. If I had that responsibility my carelessness would be much less and my effort much higher.

    Hey Newkid, I'm starting my investment portfolio some time this year. I've just been reading books and things to explain to me how the stock market operates, but if you like you can add me to msn or something and I can give you the tools and examples on how to setup a niche and get ranked in top 25+ for your keyword on google within a month. Also I can teach you some black hat methods by hand in return for a little bit of advice on the stock market. Anyways I wish you and your family all the best in your online career
