    I dunno if this is the right section but it sounds good to me. Anyways Ive been at this whole "IM" thing for about 6 weeks now and have really hit a wall.

    So far Ive set up about 15 autoblogs, which are earning me the most, and by most I mean they made me about $45 in 6 weeks through amazon affiliate and adsense. Ive also set up a couple websites to promote CPA offers, so far that hasnt earned anything. Ive also tried fan pages on facebook to promote CPA offers, also no such luck.

    Im thinking Ive tried to do to many things at once and need to settle down and focus on ONE method. What would you guys recommend? Im think to work more on the auto blogs, by doing backlinks and blog commenthing. Is that even worth putting all the time into? I really think I can make the most with CPA I just need to find a way to promote them. Suggestions?

    At Im the point where I kinda wanna just say F all this and quite but by far the most important thing ive read over and over on here is to never give up. Oh ya I already work a full time job so I can only put about 4-5 hours into this a day so I need a method that would maximize my time. In the end my goal is to make $2000 a month. Thats all I want and if I can achieve that I would be extremely happy.

    Another victim of the IM dream gets brought down to reality!!! NICE!!!

    Hey man, you have to be a little more patient with yourself. 6 weeks is not NEARLY enough time to master this thing we call IM.

    If you would have said 6 months, then ok, I could understand your frustration. But really, one month?

    What made you think it would be that easy?

    Do you expect to step into a ring with no training and fight floyd mayweather?

    What makes you think IM is any different?

    Keep going, but stop expecting instant results man!

    It doesn't work that way, and it NEVER did!!

    THAT IS THE TRUTH!!!
    Good Luck!

    I knew getting into this wasnt gonna be easy, and I am more than willing to work hard at it (I dont even consider it work since I get to sit at home with the music blaring and drink beer while I do it!) Basically I guess Im just asking which direction would you go in? Ive read way to much stuff and have all these random ideas but I want to settle down and ocus on ONE method.

    After 6 weeks thats at least a success. Your going to need patience more than anything at this point if you want to hit 2k a month. Its a lot mroe work than it sounds

    The direction you go in is the direction that is working for you.

    But to be honest, their is no definite answer to your question.

    Some people make money one way, others make money in other ways.

    Some make thousands a day, others make a couple of dollars a day.

    And whats really interesting is, they can be in the same niche, yet one will sweep up and the other will barely get by.

    You said you made $45?

    Obviously, your doing something right to make that $45.

    Keep going man. Really, no one (or very, very few) started out making thousands a day. Usually its a gradual process.

    I say you are a success. You made $45. Some people make $0 with autoblogs. You should be proud of yourself instead of beating yourself up!

    So what ever it is that you are doing, keep at it.

    You'll get to your goal bro!

    2k/month is less then $100/day, avg affiliate sale $30, 3 days/day, $3k+/month, does it seem THAT hard to get 3 sales a day? Not really once you start getting a couple of sales.

    On topic: I'd stick with the auto blogs as they seem to be working for you right now.

    Just stay focused with creating auto blogs right now because that made you money already. Just scale it up and continue creating more and more blogs.

    And don't be disappointed that you made "only" $45. The vast majority of people who start with IM need much more time to earn their first dollar.

    So, stop worrying and create blog after blog... until you are happy with the result. Then and only then try something different, so that you have multiple streams of income eventually.

    well, it takes time for the auto blogs to start generating $$. so just keep at it. i know it is hard to motivate when the money is not coming in yet, but you won't regret the efforts. just keep on truckin

    You're going in the perfect direction. You're making money. Let the autoblogs do their thing while you sit there and scale up your operation (and drink beer). If 15 autoblogs made you 45, then get 30 and make 90, and keep it up.

    You've made more than me in 6 weeks for what it's worth.

    Thanks for all the positive replies. I will just keep doing what im doing with my blogs since it is working. Just gotta keep telling myself to never give up and remember that each failure is a learning experience.

    Keep at it pal. It took me 2 years to go from average income to banking big, and that was mostly because I was getting spun round and round at DP and WF until I found BHW. So you're a step ahead.

    One thing I want to stress though, is that you should set goals. Open up excel and write down goals for each day. You'll manage your time 150% better. Keep reading and continue taking action.

    I guarantee you that if you stick to it and work smart at it, in 6 months, you'll be banking some serious profits.
