    If you could do blackhat/IM over again what would you do differently starting off? I am curious to know if you would change methods. For instance, some do article submissions, while others do ewhoring, starting off. Then move to something else after realizing that the other method wasn't meeting needs. What would you have done out the gate.

    P.S. One thing I learned about myself is that I learn better when people tell me their storys.Hence: why I am asking..strange huh:confused:

    I would spend every penny I earned finding other people to do the grunt work. I'm now a reasonably good swiss army knife of blackhat and marketing in general, but I've spent a lot of time building sites, writing code, designing graphics, writing content and a hundred other little things. I think my time and earnings would have increased much more quickly if I had just spent the money necessary to get others to do what they're best at so I could focus on what I'm best at.

    What? Do it over again! Blackhat/IM is always on going, evolving etc. Your always going to hit problems and make mistakes in whatever method you do or start with. There is no right answer for this question.

    You may here about one IM that used a blackhat method using eWhoring and couldnt get any signups. However other IM's have had hugh success and earn $10,000+ a month. With every method you will here bad stories and good stories. So really at the end of the day its up to you - what are you good at, what can you do, what intrests you?

    Plus I don't think anyone limits themselves to one method. You must always have multiple revenue streams as nearly everyday at least one of my methods hits a hurdle or stops working so I have to fix it. But the others are still earning for me.

    Its no good asking how people did it as time you go to do it the method may be over saturated, stop working etc. So you have to be creative and put a new twist or spin on it to succeed.

    P.S - STOP asking and start DOING. You may think your learn by reading but you won't. Your only start really learning by actually doing it!!!

    Just my 2 pence.

    :D HA HA so true. You stole my answer so I don't have anything else to say :p

    Whatever you do, do it constantly, don't get caught up with thinking about all the good methods just try one and be the best of the best with your method, take it to the next level, make new rules. And remember, when ever you and everybody else did something successful in their life it was when we decided to go a little outside our comfort zone ;)

    Well, it seems that after all I have something to add. LOL
