    Thats great but inventing a product and making many many sales is one of the hardest things to do in your life.

    Thats my experience.

    Can you give some inkling of the type of product?

    I like the part when you say stop making them happy and focus on not making them unhappy.

    I would have thought the 200/700 you make daily from the method to be very impressive ;) I mean $200 a day is $6000 a month. The $1200 you've made from the WSO is good stuff, but when you factor in the cost of running it plus eventual refunds (there's always one), 6k a month is way more impressive.

    I am just saying...

    Couldn't have said it any better myself.:target:

    Octane - I'm glad you are having success, and wish you nothing but more of it. Just remember to take a close look at Peter's post because he hit the mark dead on.

    Good luck.

    Ryan, at the beginning of this thread you said,


    and then in another thread you said...

    the thread is here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/733261-post10.html

    you seem like a stand-up guy, so I just wanted to confirm a few things with you.

    FACT: most people make more than $500/month at their "normal" jobs (in fact even when I entered the "work force", 13 years ago, I made more than $500/month.)

    YOU SAID: you never made more than $500/month doing anything online (in this thread)

    YOU SAID: (in another thread) you make more than most people make at their normal jobs...and you make that money by flipping websites.

    so my question to you is this: did you perhaps misstate/misspoke when you said you make less than $500/month at the beginning of this thread?

    I'm interested in your WSO and looking to get it (because I believe it's an interesting concept) but if you have conflicting stories, then that is definitely not cool.

    hit me back playa...

    I agree with the people that are saying don't give up on affiliate marketing. Definately there's more money to be made with your own products, but not everyone has ideas that are good enough to sell.

    Octane actually gave me a review copy of his ebook to let him know what I thought of it. Then I started getting a flood of people pming me asking if I could look at their sites so I didn't get around to writing a review for him. Sorry about that Octane.

    It is a pretty good plan he outlines in his ebook. If your thinking about selling site design and seo services to businesses offline, he has some good information on how to do it. He even includes an additional twist that most people in this field aren't doing. I would recommend the book for anyone interested in doing offline sales. You could even use the same method for selling the services online from a website, but the offline service is a lot more personal.

    As Peter said you'll need to be able to find your own affiliates and make even more products if you want the success of selling this ebook to be long term. That's why I like affiliate sales, you always have something to sell even if you can't always come up with a saleable idea yourself.

    Kudos to you man. Hope you make a lot more from it too. It's nice to read success stories. Especially when they include suggestions on how to duplicate it for others.

    I don't want to be a dick guys, but like other blackhatter said before this thread seems to be a "subliminal advertising" that no one seems to be aware of. Just read it a few times and you'll discover how this type of promotion works...

    Well I'm not sure there's really any "subliminal advertising" at work here. A mod even had to remove a link and remind him this isn't bst. The promotion for his ebook is pretty much right out in the open, and I'm sure everyone is aware of that. lol.

    It still doesn't make this thread any less valuable. His story about making $1500 in a few days doesn't involve using the method in his ebook. The thread is about him making even more money by selling the method.

    The OP was sharing how he made money by writing an ebook and selling it. Anyone that can come up with saleable ideas could duplicate that success, he also gave a few steps on how he went about doing it.

    I actually think its a pretty good thread.

    The PM and email weren't enough? C'mon man. I replied to you already, but since you came in here too, I'll copy and paste the same reply again. Third time's a charm, right?

    There. Now it's exposed. You win? I don't understand some people ..

    Thank you very much GreyWolf; I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    I don't want to be a dick Galanoid, but like other blackhatter said before, I'm trying to help some newbies out around here. That's what this forum's for, right? I forget sometimes. Between all of the bitching and complaining that goes on here (see: Galanoid), some of us actually want to provide something useful.

    Thanks again man. If the people who sit here and bitch all day just applied their time to making money, BHW would be so much more pleasant.

    Not only that, but the mod didn't remove the link for quite some time. Other mods even posted in the thread without removing it. So we're looking at two options here: 1. I'm so good at subliminal advertising, I don't even know it myself. or 2. My thread actually provided some useful information and I had a link for reference to what I was talking about. Never was there a link to a WSO or anything; just the info link for the product.

    Either way, I'll never make everyone happy. So either read and learn and enjoy, or eff off.

    way to go. I realize there are t&c's regarding links, but come on. I'm sure plenty of noobs would have liked to see exactly what he's doing.... it's not often the people are willing to share their exact site with us!!

    OP, mind PMing me?

    I'm sorry man! I posted on this thread here first before sending you the PM.

    that's the reason for the multiple messages.

    I do apologize and I appreciate what you are trying to do here in this thread.

    Not really trying to be offensive, although the written word does sometimes makes posts (or writings) look rude.

    totally not my intention.

    Once again, accept my apologies.

    Thank you for coming in and clearing this up man. My bad on that then. Definitely took it as an attack to my character.

    I'm glad you cleared that up for me. Thank you.
