    Hey guys! thank you for taking your time in helping me to decide whether i should pay a year membership to blackhat world.

    The question I would like to ask is not whether I should get it now (because eventually every Jr. vip will say its worth it anyway, what's more im posting in the forum that offers the memebership!)

    More on putting yourself in my shoes, my perspective.

    I'm been in IM for the past 2 years and haven't been doing well in it, maybe the max i earned from it about 200-300usd and those method just dies. And I left 100 USD which i could choose to invest in the membership and hopefully get something out of it or invest in micro sites.

    Tell me what do you think, if you were me? As far as i know, if there is knowledge i can gain from getting the Jr. vip i would definitely choose this choice even it required me to invest more in doing so.

    Once again, thank you for your time guys! :D

    If you've only made $200-300 in 2 years, I'm afraid there's nothing in Jr VIP that will turn that around. If I were you I'd invest that money in one last go at IM.

    I look at Jr VIP more as a way for people for people to give a bit back to the forum, and to buy a bit of social status.

    I agree with the above posters, if you haven't made any real money with all the freely available info, Jr. VIP won't change anything here (it might even be counterproductive with more noncrucial info).

    Your problem is not lack of information, there's enough info here to keep you trapped for 10 years (and it seems you've already done 2 years).
    It's something else. Do you know what it is?

    I'm in a similar position, but I've found my demon recently... instead of wasting time, collecting needless info, switching between 5 drawing boards and planning 5 different projects I'd never start, I focused on one thing (list building), I broke it down into smaller tasks, and I'm actively working on it.

    Take a look at these 2 years and see what mistakes you've been making, it's some kind of a mental block on your part, it will be easier once you realize what's holding you back.

    Yes, it is. You can literally PROFIT by just being a Jr. Vip by selling your signature space for $20-$30 a month. You have access to the secret section with threads that have good money making methods as well.

    Even though the thread is a couple of years old it still a legit question for a guy who was struggling in this business at the time.

    I have a question? What do you mean by Jr. Vip selling signature space
    for 20-$30 A MONTH?
    Are you saying anyone pay to get a signature posted?
