    I was so excited when I found Marketers Delight 2 online for free... I thought I would just plug and play. But then I found out the opt in form costs 1 dollar from aweber and the orb leads don't work and the columns lead doesn't work either. and my category slugs were messed up (help me diagnose) which I fixed but they still say /category/ dir in the url.

    I am sad because I have had two domains for about 1 month but havn't got but one visitor. I haven't even got accepted or applied to a cpa network yet. Perhaps having my own website isn't good for me right now, maybe I need to go to blogger.com and monetize one of those for a while.

    I want to find another niche that will convert well with cpa other than warez that I actually feel confident in... that's all I feel confident in--warez... I would rather make my money in a clean way man. I would rather start making money today. I saw some video methods--maybe I should start rendering videos on my slow laptop to make money.

    It's an uphill battle--I hope I get there. Because to me, 100/day is a lot. I used to work at a mall kiosk from mall open to mall close for $100. Every day, for about 1 month...

    I read some really great success stories of ppl making 100+ a day with cpa so that's what I went for. now i have 2 niches, one that's dead (but I liked it though), and one that's way too competitive to rank.

    I'm sad because I spent 12 bucks on hostbig and i don't like their speed. I'm sad because I spent 30 bucks on articles, all of which I had to edit extensively in full.

    Send me something that will help me please. A post, a pm, anything you know will help.

    I've been doing IM for 3 years and have had months that I make $0 and others where I make $5k. Just gotta keep your head up and keep on trucking. I love IM so it doesn't matter how many rough months I have I just keep on going.

    When you're self employed, the highs are high and the lows are much lower. Don't sweat it and carry on.

    I feel your pain, mezzie. I've been trying this IM thing off and on for the past 10 years with no results...except losing monies. I want to get to $100/day, too. That would be schweeet!

    Anyway, why not try out the method here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/359445-easy-100-day-perfect-noobs.html

    It looks pretty cool, if you have time to do the blog post part. And if you don't, you can probably outsource it.

    Why aren't you comfortable doing anything but warez? There are tons of great niches out there! Weight loss, insurance, dating, payday loans...okay so some of those are verrrrry competitive, but with that method I linked to, they might work.

    Keep reading other members methods, twist them, make them your own, and when something clicks, scale it up and automate where you can. If you have only got one visitor you need to go to the white hat seo section and read, read, read. Once you understand white hat, start reading the black hat stuff. Buy some services here or on fiverr to help your rankings. Create videos and put em up on youtube. Use twitter to drive traffic. All of this is info you can get just from reading these forums. Don't give up, take action every day. Here's a start, so no excuses.

    Keep trying! It's initial hard in the beginning. Always remember you can only fail if you quit.

    Keep Trying and never give up, There are times in IM career that you will have lows, but if you keep trying, keep changing what doesnt work and take some risks on the way, you will surely reach 100 / day

    Dont get disappointed with the challenges, A bend in the road is not the end in the road...

    Where there is a will, there are many ways !

    Persistence pays off so just keep at it, you will eventually find the method that works for you and you can work from there.
    You asked about what theme do you use, well don't tie yourself down to 1 theme, you use a different one for a different site dependant on your target niche.
    There are plenty of themes in this forum to download for free so if cash is tight then just use them. But be aware, themes are just templates you will be required to make alterations and personalize the site. Get photoshop and you will be good to go for that.

    When I'm in your situation, I always remember the "Two steps forward, one step back" catchphrase to keep motivated and focus.

    Yes, you can try blogger or wordpress or some web 2.0 sites, there always someone are finding something they wanted.
    SEO is just a sweet pie of IM, if you can`t get it, try another easy one.
    IMAO.

    Cheers

    UPDATE:

    I have done real KW research and now have 3 pretty cool sites up. All are very low competition, > 2000 exact local EMD's. One involving a surprisingly popular Amazon product, and 2 involving free downloadable products.

    Through my excursions with free hosts and reading like a mad man trying to study for an SEO Phd, I have gained on-site SEO, wordpress, and cpanel knowledge to succeed. Now it's just a matter of writing the articles.

    And off-site seo.

    I've gotta pray man.

    This. Same here. Some months suck, other months are great.
