OK, so yeah I've not been on this forum for quite a while, and I'm somewhat regretting that. However, I usually don't like the atmosphere doubting noobs create often times (although that happens significantly less here, and I love this place). I need my mind positive for this work. I will not quantify what I just earned today from all my affiliate campaigns, but suffice to say that I am abundantly pleased with my SEO efforts, and I've never had so much faith in this industry and in IM as I do now. Look, if you are new to all this, please understand that experience is just as important as education if not more. In other words, it is best to get your own feet wet based on what you have learned. I used to drown myself in trying to be super analytical about everything - especially keyword research. Another thing to consider is grabbing yourself a good coach. I'm working on that because I don't have all the answers. But fortunately I've got enough to make money. I hope to be like some of you guys who do more advanced models with loads of twitter followers and facebook marketing or what have you. The options are really opening up with increased startup cash. Sorry guys, I just wanted to get my mind out in the open a bit (I'm very introverted by nature), but hopefully maybe I can help some people out. That way I can justify posting here rather than the lounge... Now to be cheesy, go take action. But don't neglect faith in yourself.
