    I have been on and off this board for a long time. I struggled with making some money last year doing free websites for people I found locally in the Chamber of Commerce. I ended up not making much and only having to deal with idiots who want the world, for free. Hassling idiots from Churches who has ridiculous chains of command to get anything done. I made a measly few hundred which took forever to get paid out.

    I moved on try buying hosting and re-selling it and making a profit. Failed again here as I attracted scum and lost a money because they wouldn't pay and kept trying to host warez and illegal sh** on the servers. No money and and discouraged again I just gave up and took a long break. Breaks are important you have to rest your brain and your muscles so they can grow.

    Along the way I still kept in contact with some people on Skype and you bounce ideas off each other to try new methods and ideas. I eventually found my way to the adult webmaster community. Yes, porn. Still had no money but I got in contact with 5 or 6 sponsors who offered free hosting but you can only promote their programs. Most then my heart broke when I realized they only gave this hosting to people who were already pros at marketing :(. Then I realized something very important. I have nothing to LOSE. So I had a heartfelt conversation with my affiliate manager and he agreed on the basis of my spirit to give me free hosting simply because I had to heart to continue and try through failure.

    I began to sharpen my skills that I left long forgotten along the way of years of trial and error / failure. I started building traffic to my, very very crappy looking sites. Which were mostly thrown together with banners and promo tools. I spent hours tracking down webmaster ICQ's and contact information about traffic exchange and began to ask people to trade traffic. Having no money I had to do a lot of grunt work for people in exchange for these deals. Writing content titles, uploading videos, having to endure weird and gay porn on my screen for hours. But finally! The traffic started rolling in slowly and I started making some SALES! The money started rolling in. I had enough money to start purchasing and paying for traffic now and building quality content and more sites.


    For the past few months I have been close to 2k each month with their program

    I also branched off to other adult programs and am doing very well.

    My goal is to consistently make $5,000 ea month.



    Honestly I am not very good at telling stories but I believe that we have to go from here to there to arrive at our destination. Almost all stories of success you read on this board people start with adversity and finally end up somewhere completely unexpected and have success. You have to go into it knowing you are going to face failure. Like standing in front of a cold shower, you have to endure it until the shower comes to nourish you. Without the failure you cannot find your way and you will just stand at the starting line shaking in fear.


    We all know the keys to success
    1. You have to try and put forth effort
    2. Failing is apart of it, embrace
    3. Be tenacious, ask questions, even stupid ones! You never know what you'll get.

    The free hosting and relationship I have built with my affiliate manager allowed me to get free hosting finally find my way to success and earning good income.

    I can't give anyone the hard work and lessons of failure in a pill form to eat, you have to do that yourself.

    I can get some people setup with an affiliate account and free hosting, but it is only for promoting their sponsor. He is willing to let a few people try the same path I have made if you have the heart and the will.
    The hard work and dedication will have to come from you.
    I believe we can all make it from nothing because we all start as nothing.

    and or
    PM if you would like do the free hosting and promote this program.
    I can only help maybe 10 or 15 people.

    AFAIK they accept all traffic (Except from russian) and webmasters from all countries.

    Congratulations! It's good that you're finally making money. I'm still in the phase where I have to re-invest pretty much all the money I make, so I haven't been able to take out money to use in the real world yet, but the day is coming...

    Does most of your traffic come from SEO or are you doing media buys?

    Congratulations on your earnings OP.

    In the process, you have given me a good marketing idea for products.

    Method: Rags to Riches Testimonial + referral link at the end.

    SEO, which is ironically doing very well for me at the moment. Lots of webmasters even the very experienced ones have dropped out of the game due to all the tube and 'pirate' sites. So they are leaving a lot of money on the table for newer hungrier webmasters to come in and clean up. Just goes to show you that people who were riding high on easy street got mentally soft and quit when the heat got turned up.

    A testimonial to hard work is the only thing I give adulation to. The opportunities derived from the source at not necessarily the same thing as the source. Owning the physical copy of a book doesn't do much unless you read it and gain the value and opportunity from it. I tend to judge others based on their openness about their failure and growth. Measly things such as quotes, books and referral links don't give rise to anything inherently.

    All I could ever hope to push onto people is their sense of self-worth, belief, and ingenuity.In fact I plan on releasing guides in the form of posts only relating to mind set and work ethic. The attitude is everything.

    I've gotten quite a few PM's about people wanting to know what steps to take. The first step is to realize you cannot instantly go from $0 to $x,xxx in really anything or adult. You have to build up your content, learn the niche atleast somewhat , and then proceed. Anyone unwilling to have the patience to take the small steps and actually learn from what they are doing needs to read the following books.

    Brian Tracy - Eat That Frog - How to do the important things each day
    Josh Waitzkin - The Art of Learning - How to actually learn and improve at what you are doing instead of doing it robotically.
    Kelly Mcgonigal, PhD - The Willpower Instinct - How to develop the willpower to remain consistent to do 1 and 2 each day so you do not burn out.

    Combine this with a target.
    A product or program you wish to sell.
    Short/long term goals for money.
    Begin work.

    The part where u had to endure hours of weird or gay porn is a testament that you were willing to do whatever was necessary ;)
