    im really upset right now. Why ? Well ive been in internet marketing for a while now but recently everything i do is failing on me . I have the knowledge of an expert thanks to bhw but some how when ever i implement it , it doesnt work. I know about the " right mind " for success but even though im postive things dont work out.. It seems like everyone else here i getting ahead of me doing the same things im doing but somehow i fail everytime when i know i shouldnt.

    Ive tried ;

    selling articles on fiverr - fail

    selling blogs on dp - fail

    selling services here and there - fail

    facebook fan page - fail

    cpa related fail - fail

    selling wix websites - FAIL

    selling my medical niche blog - fail

    I can create edit and launch just about anything < -- as far as my skill goes

    thats just the things i tried and failed. where as everyone else that tries it gets somewhere. I know im doing everything correct but it just seems like a mess.

    That point of this thread was not to create a negative enviroment, i just wanted some positive feedback and help.

    What's awhile? If you've only been at it for 9 months and have tried all those methods, you're jumping around way too much. Work at something for more than a month before calling it "failure."

    You tested too many methods and not sticking with one method to get success. That's the main mistake :)

    Look IM is not easy....if it was anybody could and would do it.

    Pick one thing and keep trying till it works.

    Keep in mind that, no single IM course or WSO is going to give you a blueprint for success. You always have to make your own twist.

    The main thing about learning IM, afilliate marketing and SEO is that it can help you see opportunities that others don't see.

    For example, awhile back, I was surfing and happened upon a forum where someone had question on how to do something...the thread got large as no one had a real answer. I checked a few other related forums and saw the same question had been asked with no real answer. So I researched, and came up with a answer that included them going through several places where I have affiliate accounts. Just doing that one thing brings me in a extra $200 to $300 a month.

    IM is about seeing the potential and having the knowledge to be able to turn it into a payday.

    You shouldn't give up. Try learning SEO. Black hat & white hat SEO. Learn keyword research & how to acquire high PR, do follow backlinks. All of that information is in the threads.

    i think the main point thats making it hard for me in this black hat world , is i dont believe in cheating or scamming people. Alot of tutorials here involve cheating, lying or scamming people at different levels, which im against

    Stick with one thing. Wether SEO, marketing or something else.

    Be expert in your field then move toward other. As other said you have tried too many things.. You are not sticking with one thing...

    I have never scammed anyone and everything I do is whitehat, but that doesn't mean I can't be involved here in BHW lol.

    My first 2 years in IM I made like 20 bucks total. I tried many methods and failed. Then one day, just 1 of my methods worked, and I put all my resources into it (got it up to about 35 bucks a day).

    I was so happy at that moment because I could see a direct path to success. All I had to do was scale up that method because I knew it worked for me. I invested a huge amount of money into it but I also got laid off from my day job and decided I didn't need to look for a new one. I was at a point in my life where I felt so sure about what I wanted to do and how I was going to pursue IM full time. This was of course until panda came along... and crushed all my sites overnight.. lost 95% traffic and revenue.

    I kept clinging on to what I had, refusing to believe that this was permanent. Days and weeks passed by while my income was still virtually nothing (3-6 bucks a day). I couldn't understand how google would allow lower quality sites to rank above mine. I tweaked and tweaked my site but not even a single position change.

    After doing a lot of extra reading, I made the difficult decision to start all over again and abandon my old business model, this time incorporating the knowledge I learned from my "failure". I created a few "authority" sized sites (blueprint only, hasn't reached the size yet) but a month went by and not a single buck came in, 0% CTR. Then all of a sudden (just like before), 1 of the sites jumped up and dominated 1st page google for all its keyterms. The site has been pulling a consistent 50 bucks a day for a while now and the last 2 days its pulled in 120+/day. (It wont last forever because the niche is not evergreen, but I am happy to milk it while I can :))

    I never would have landed on this if I did not move on from my failures and keep trying. Most people never reach success because "most people give up just when they're about to achieve success"

    I know its just a matter of time before my other "authority" sites start making money or I will cut my losses there and move on to a new project taking the experience with me. I usually give each project at least 6 months before I decide it's not going to work.

    staying up to date on bhw hardly makes you an expert. You really think the very successful imers are going to share their banking methods publicly? That's how you become an expert - take what you learn here and make something of your own.

    I know from personal experience that dealing with failures can be tremendously soul killing. I have seen many many more failures than what is listed above. I am not even talking about the sacrifices made. It's been 3 and half years since I started my IM journey. It has been complete failure all through the 3 and half years despite spending 15 to 20 hours a day without any offs. Just last month, I started a thread asking for $200 because I didn't have even $200 to pay my supplier. I wanted to work on my ecommerce site. A reputable bhw member also accused me of begging after seeing that thread. In fact, I was offering 30% something return in one month for the investment of $200 and was not begging or something.

    Fast forward now, I am making consistent $100 to $200 a day. My best was yesterday $430 in a day. This is good amt of money in a country like India where I live. I did nothing special. I have been working on an ecommerce site since the last six months and it took off this month. But the journey always seemed too hard and too far but I never gave up and which is why I am making this much today.

    I just wanted it TOO BAD, hence I am semi-successful today or else knowledge or skill wise I don't know better than you or anyone else because for the most part of my IM journey I wrote content to keep my creditors at bay (some failed investments) and to meet my other expenses. When I would pay off all my credits, I used to work on CPA, adsense, fiverr, affiliate marketing etc etc... but they all failed... But, I always believed that for a determined mind, there is no failure only delayed success. So, don't give up, bro/

    You have what I call the "Chasing the shiny thing" syndrome.

    You do not spend enough time and resources on one project because something more shiny comes along and you jump on the new bandwagon.


    Stick to something... and really work at it.... till you succeed.

    Stop thinking that there is some magic method or magic source of traffic that is making everybody money... and if you could just find it. STOP that.
    there is no such thing.

    Making money online is just as hard as having a job....

    Edison supposedly said something along the lines of
    ..."I have not failed 700 times. I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving that those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work." ?Edison..."

    I think he peeked over Tesla's shoulder but regardless,
    point is you have to learn something from your mistakes !!

    If you don't you are destined to fail again. You might think all those
    methods are different but I ask you to look for the common nominator.
    Something connects all of them, and that is what is holding you back.

    Stick to one method and become an expert with that method.
