    Greetings!

    Who I am?

    First thing first, I want to thank all the members of BHW for sharing such great information, tools, updated journeys and all the other things related to Internet Marketing. I am not selling my intro for the credits mentioned in this thread. I am writing this because I want to share the things that happened throughout my IM journey of 9 years.

    I am just another IMer from India. I won?t keep it too long. No blames and no regrets of any sort. I became a part of IM in 2007 with the first ever community I?d ever joined (that was 2wap by Gumslone if I remember it correctly). Developed a few xHTML/Wap forums/chat sites and earned tons in those days. After a while I played around with a lot of BH methods and posted a few on Allvoices and other related sites. Kept on growing, got my first job in 2009 as a researcher of Internet Marketing. I Invested a lot of time improving other skills, added ?Sales? to my profile and learned foreign language in parallel. Now I work in the field ?Demand Generation & Sales? with a ?considerably? good company, 20 miles from home.

    Why I am writing this post?
    A couple of days back, I watched a video tutorial sold by someone at Udemy, telling how SoloAds can help you grow affiliate marketing (CB). He was able to fake his earnings of $250+ in just few hours. I thought IS IT? REALLY!! But how? I started reading more and more on that. I started digging all the possibilities mainly for three reasons:

    1. How it was done?
    2. Decent earnings are achievable.
    3. And yes, I started missing my old days of BH.IM.

    A few days after reading lots, lots over different websites, I realized the guy who made that success story in his tutorial was actually an affiliate of some Solo directory website (that directory had a subscription cost of over $400). The fact I have learned throughout my career is; without hard work (some say smart work) success comes for short time or it never comes at all. Other than all the things, that training video gave me another opportunity to be friends with my past and do some BH once again.

    Through the process of gathering information to have a glimpse of Internet Marketing paradigm shift, I realized I left everything, miles behind. There is a huge learning curve for me now and in that excitement, I thought I should give a try with making a little investment & I purchased FSB (Fresh Store Builder) to create an amazon affiliate website. It eventually failed because, the traditional methods I used to get traffic, are long gone now (or some of them are used with a twist by smart marketers and black hatters).


    Why I joined BHW?

    People say SEO is dead showing proofs of what is working and what ain?t to create their own USPs to sell the same product over and over again. Even in my childhood, I never believed in ?fairy tales? and when I saw people selling ?dreams? and ?illusions of high profits? on the name of internet marketing, I joined BHW to see how things are working in real world. I have been sniffing BHW for over a month now. Spent hours reading IM journeys, methods, tools, download, and marketplace etc.
    Here I got acquainted with the best anatomy that an Internet Forum can have. The two most impressive things of this forum IMO are 1. The culture and 2. Mods patrolling J Please don?t misunderstand me. I am nobody to give certificates to anyone. This is just what I observed and found most interesting of all the other things. IM journeys are great source of motivation and IM Lounge is the best way to kill the all-day stress.


    What?s next?

    BHW is the start point of my new ?learning and earning? trajectory. My path will be: Learning>Case Studies>Experimenting>Investing>Implementing>Earning. I saw a lot of getting success but sometimes failures too. That?s all the part of this game. BHW helped me a lot to get sync with my past and rearranging things according to the trends. Now I am in a ?Good to go? position once again with all the learning and the past life (that I missed a lot; which was about to get buried somewhere). I don?t have a journey to post as of now but I have started putting efforts to create one.


    What?s this $50 Credit story?

    I learned a lot here. Read so many case studies... added some good tools to my arsenal (both free and paid ones that I bought recently). I appreciate the great contribution of all smart marketers to this community and wanted to add something that I recently got for myself too.

    Will he share the things I jumped into this thread for? Ah.. for god sake.. :cussing:Yes of course: Its GIT Student Developer Pack (there is something for everyone)

    URL: H(TeeTeePee)://education(dot)github(dot)com(slash)pack :D (I registered as a student with name of some university and no verification was held. Got all my freebies in 48 hours of registration. Registered with many proxies too and now waiting for more credits).

    1. Digital Ocean : $50 in platform credit for new users
    2. Bitnami : Business 3 plan (normally $49/month) for one year .
    3. ATOM (a great text editor for programmers)
    4. AWS Educate : Student Developer Pack members receive $15 in bonus AWS credits for a total of $50-$115
    5. Access to CrowdFlower (Crowdsourcing and data enrichment platform)
    6. DNSimple (Bronze hosted DNS plan (normally $3/month) for two years)
    7. GiTHub for collaboration and code management (Micro account (normally $7/month) with five private repositories while you're a student)
    8. HackHands (Live programming help 24/7)- $25 in platform credit
    9. Visual Studio IDE including developer tools ? (Visual Studio Community 2013 and the rest of the DreamSpark collection while you?re a student)
    10. Namecheap - One year domain name registration on the .me TLD (normally $18.99/year)
    11. Orchestrate ? (A complete database portfolio that includes search, time-series events, geolocation and graph queries through an API) Developer account (normally $49/month) while you're a student.
    12. SendGrid Email Service ? (Student plan 15K free emails/month (normally limited to 200 free emails/day) while you're a student)
    13. Stripe Payments ? (Waived transaction fees on first $1000 in revenue processed)
    14. TravisCI ? Project Integration (Private builds (normally $69/month) while you're a student)
    15. UnReal Engine - A complete suite of game development tools for PC, console, mobile, web and VR

    I hope there is something for everyone who read my post; which was long enough to kill your time if there wasn?t anything. Ready to start my own journey of BH.IM once again with all my fellow marketers? J


    Thank you all.
    Cheers!!

    Dope stuff. I have two questions

    1. How'd you get into IM initially? How'd you find out about 2wap?
    2. Why'd you get out if you were making good money?

    Welcome btw :) Nice to have you on board

    Too young to post urls





    Thank you friend



    Really? Was it too long?



    Sorry for that.. This may help.. :eek:

    haha.jpg



    Thank you my friend.


    1. I was an active user on some mobile forums and download sites (like tagtag and peperonity) in 2007 and created a small wapsite for downloads and chat; for 2 months, did not earn even a dime. Got some frnds on Mxit who suggested to start with submitting web directories and from there got involved in IM stuff. "Directory submissions" brought me to IM. :)
    2. For 2 reasons- I completed my grad and got a job offer and second- FB ate majority of my traffic by late 2009. I lost interest.



    That's cool buddy.. However, I used my gmail address only.
