Hello, The title says it in a nutshell: I'm looking to enter the general -possible lucreative- IM world. I'm currently working -since years- mainly as an offline affiliate in the online gambling industry and will be having some online portals running -also affiliating online gambling- in the near future. Those portals are my first steps in real 'online IM world' and I'm sure I'll reach some level of success as I believe I'm surrounded by the correct people in bringing those projects live. However, since I personally believe that the online gambling industry overall reaches/will reach a saturated market level, I'm looking to enter other IM 'markets' / areas. Fx. adsense sites, cpa sites, clickbank affiliating, amazon authority review sites, coupon sites, etc... . I'm not looking to start from scratch as a noobish guy like I did in the past when I made my first steps into online gambling affiliating. I have some starting capital / capital to invest (5 figure amount) and want to use this to fx. buy existing stuff and built out that further into good successes (no idea further for what exactly I could use my starting capital). My issue: I have little / no experience in overall IM. Therefore I'm looking for people/IMers that can guide/consult me, bring me a (clear) path in the general world of IM, show me potential most interesting areas to work on, make me help evaluations to enter IM areas, etc... . I'm even open for possible partnerships, etc... . With this thread, I'm not looking for 'general' answers as one could find in other similar threads that are going on (threads: "what-would-you-do-100k", "what-would-you-do-50k"): - "I would um.. set up about 50 authority sites and make them big as hell.. also I would invest in some professional (like real pros) PPC guys and products.." - "40k adsense authority sites, 20k clickbank mini sniper and authority review sites, 20k amazon authority sites, 10k zeek rewards, 10k CPA sites,..." I'm looking for more in-depth answers on questions like: authority sites in what area, what kind of CPA products convert good / are worth working on, what kind of amazon authority sites should i be looking at, what are the real pro ppc guys, etc... . Let me know if my thread/ questions make(s) sense. Contact me if you have the knowledge to guide me/teach me. Contact me with whatever that pops up in your mind that could help me. I'm also interested in hearing 'stories' from people that started / entered the IM world like I'm doing. Thanks in advance. J.
