    Greetings everyone,

    I joined a week ago... already have gained so so so much. Freaking love this forum. Downloaded FB scraper, some great trainings, etc.

    I started IM on July 19th. I am a member of a private Forex trading forum... the leader of that group offered any of the veteran members of that forum an opportunity. He would give an affiliate commission to anyone who could sell more memberships to the forum.

    I set up my own affiliate site, bought GetResponse's cheapest package, and started buying solo ads... in the first month I sold $1200 worth of memberships on my site / email list. You could say I have the bug now. A fact about me: I have been self-employed for about 9 year... I started a "real world" business two weeks after I graduated college and have experience in "old media" advertising (postcards, magnets, print ads, etc.)

    Anyway back to the story... I got some sales on that site, but my conversion ratio was low, like .35%.

    I was not happy with that... so I stopped paying for advertisements and started looking for answers. It has been a very fun journey over the past 100 days!

    Here's my question: I liken this Internet marketing stuff to trading the Forex markets. If enough people use a certain strategy, the strategy loses its edge.

    There are so many great tools and strategies here (AddMeFast, Facebook scrapers, trainings, etc.)... how do I "know" that the strategies work before using them if "everyone" knows them? I hope I'm being clear with this question - I know it's vague. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

    Welcome to BHW,

    It doesn't matter if everybody knows the tricks, it is how YOU implement them that matter.
    Also think of it this way, if it is working for others then it can work for you.

    Good Luck

    Yes the answer lies in getting a one way ticket to the Moon...

    As Moon Men know all about 'vague wisdom'

    My understanding is that on the Moon there are gurus who can unravel and simplify your OP question...

    Oh by the way when you buy a Moon ticket pay one way only...

    One other thought / question...

    Is there a place on the forum where people can post their work for advice or critical feedback? I just designed a long form sales page and I'm curious if I could post the link somewhere and take suggestions, feedback, etc.
