    Hi Everyone,

    i have been gone for a while due to family reasons, which has meant i have completely lost my way with IM,

    The time i spent trying to make it work has been very fragmented and i was always getting distracted with new methods and new programs that would help with my IM. But never did!

    i want to put that all to one side and start a fresh, i was hoping i could get some advice on a method that i could stick to for the next three to six months that can get me on a track and at least get me started with IM again.

    im looking for that first peg in the ground i can use to get going, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks Martin

    Have you spoken to a business person? I think and feel free to disagree, that you need to treat IM as
    you any other job. You need to develop a plan. So before jumping back into "IM sit down with someone and develop a full business plan and treat your IM as a real business.

    You know well that almost any method will work if you stick with it. Sounds like you're still wracked with indecision.

    thats all good advice, i was planning to write a simple but plain talking business plan, something to give me direction when i get lost/distracted.

    additionally as i work, i was planning to to build some simple not really going to make profit sites that i can use to see the method working and then that way i could apply what i have proved to other sites, but again not sure if this is a sound plan as i may become disillusioned if its not turning a profit.

    IM is a broad term, you would have done yourself some real good if you specify your area of specialization or what you have interest in.

    There are several affiliate marketing programs you can think of such as clickbank, CJ, Amazon e.t.c.

    Getting frequent sales largely depends on a number of factors like:

    1. Lading page
    2. Traffic
    3. Opt in page where you can collect names and contact of your visitors and follow up with pre-messages on auto pilot.

    The game is the same, the requirements for quality have just been going up sharply. Google has just been getting more and more anal. Nothing really that new.

    Building a quality site in a niche in which you are strong and using amazon affiliates did make quite a difference in my case. Maybe you should try this out..
