My first month was mid april - mid may 2010. I used Adscend as my sole Affiliate Network. Put a bit of effort into it, a few nights working till 5 am trying to figure how everything works and tweaking campaigns and all that. They had quite a bit of downtime though which really stopped my progress because i was on a huge roll, so that sort of sucked. Pretty pleased i guess, even though i think i probably could have done even better. Now my only hope is to progress and start making more and more money, I cannot be happy with staying at the same amount. I would probably say i am now officially an IM addict. So i guess my advice is; if a 21 year old college dropout can do it, everyone else can too! Long as you put your mind to it and not get discouraged when you fuck up, and you will screw up. Remember, you wont make ANYTHING if you dont step up and actually take action to do it. The information here is good, but i never use it word for word, its just the concept i try to take away.
