    I've seen countless threads already (mostly from the journeys section). Keep in mind, this is no hate thread against anyone. I see so many people aiming for 10$ a day, while this might seem fine for most newbs, let me tell you this:

    Do you want to make a living online? If yes, STOP aiming for 10$ a day. What's beautiful about IM is that the SKY is the limit here. We've all been newbs once, and i still remember myself being happy with 5$ or 10$ a day. This is the mindset of a newb.

    So, do you want to stay as a newb, or join the pro's ? This is really something you have to give a second thought. Most of the time (atleast for me) I had a mindset like: "Atleast I'm making SOMETHING, so it's not too bad" WRONG!

    If you don't have a goal with your IM carrier then just keep on clicking ads on PTC sites, posting forum posts on postloop, or making money with shitty sites like Mylikes. You will find yourself jumping from method to method with no clue about what you really want. You will be frustrated about the low amounts of money you'll make when you see others here succeed with the method you just COPIED WORD FOR WORD!

    What's most important here is that you find something you LOVE to do. Don't even bother trying to write articles if you HATE every single second doing it. You will lose your focus and start watching tv instead very quickly.

    Now, what you got to do is:

    1) Find a goal, what do you REALLY want to achieve online?
    2) Find something you LOVE to work with. If you love writing books, give Kindle a shot, if you like dealing with customers, and people try affiliate marketing etc.
    3) Write down notes, have your goal in mind, and GO FOR IT!
    4) What ever the fuck you do, DON'T GIVE UP! Only LOSERS do that!!! If you give up you've failed.


    There are LOADS of methods available here, pick one you find interesting and keep pushing it until you reach your goal. If you're a noob, fine, but in the end YOU deside where you want to belong. The high earners, or the low earners.
    - This is just a rant, and i hope some of the newbies reading this will get a little motivated from this post. Anyone can succeed online it just requires hard work, patience, more hard work, more patience, and in the end you will be happy you didn't give up!

    Cheers!

    Completely agree, i dont get people that want to do IM all their life and aim so low. At first i was thinking the same, then i had a hard good look at myself and changed my mindset, half a year after, i find 4 figures per day a bad day. Hope this post will motivate people as it is really not that hard to make good money.

    Keep in mind some ppl live in countries where $5/day is a LOT! :) So may be they dont want to make more and catch unwanted attention.

    Nope, OP is completely right.

    I live in a country where $10/day is considered a good salary.

    People work even for $0.6-0.9 / hour, that's terrible, isn't it ?

    But that doesn't mean I'm gonna aim at $15-20 day, my goals are much bigger, $X,XXX day.

    So, keep your head up... I've seen guys making shitloads of money and still aiming higher, but still, they have the same abilities as the ones making $10/day and considering it a good money.

    Im into aff marketing, especially email marketing so yea, but as you know this biz is volatile and nothing lasts too long, by the way some of my friends make much more than that.

    P.S. some calling this BS, just check Luke's peerfly blog, with a screen of 350k per week. And he isnt even one of the biggest players.
    Edit: got neg repped for that. Damn makes me think some people are very small minded.

    Agreed, it was a bit arrogant from my part, hopefully this will motivate people.

    He may be BS'ing BUT he is right!!!

    I see guys offering full serivce SEO for a couple hundred a month? Seriously? These keywords are worth thousands maybe tens of thousands every month...

    As a proffessional you have to know the VALUE you bring but therein lies the problem, so many people can "say" they are SEO's but they really aren't good so they devalue their own service and then others as a result. And no I am not talking about competing with ppl from other countries either.

    Nah I'm not kidding, I see you constantly big up your earnings in attempt to get people to PM you.

    This is a very common tactic used by noobs like your self.

    Also read my original post again, I didn't say I saw you selling something, I said I saw you PM people your "system".

    As for your last sentence, are you serious? So people who bank hard on CPA networks don't have a method to get leads?

    Do leads grown on trees?
