    Well , a lot of success stories now a days so decided to share my own one also.
    I am an internet marketer and also working as government employee in steel industry in India. Making money from internet people consider it as a joke or myth (The normal ones/middle classes who used to work hard even for a single dollar). Here my journey goes, after completing B.tech from a renowned Engineering college , I want to do some big rather than working on a bench and working for an I.T company (wont utter the name but its one of the famous IT companies here).
    I was fond of making blogs , tweaks , internet marketing and researching upon flipping websites. My area of interested just got attracted towards and goes lean over autoblogs day by day and I just got fond of it and also got aware of the fact that Autoblogs are hard to rank and earning money from them is very hard as issue of scrape content. My friends asked me for favour and we a groupies of 8 friends started doing it for fun and for some bucks, while taking internship in the meantime as IT consultant. We started making some money from bulk autoblogs but its very few and one of our adsense account also got banned. I reapplied and got rejected as they find it high risk for their advertisers. Our low source of income got stopped by clickbombing.
    Anyways we have supplements and we applied it and this time we replace the articles with videos and make some lookwise improvements and a lot of php tweaks and plugin modifications to make it some real special.
    Doing keywords research and searching for domain was a hard task and time consuming which we all have very limited though we reached the target and made some $1200usd at the end of month to be splitted among 8 partners.. Now this is very few we feel and tried to think out of the box.
    One of my co-worker asked to join our venture as even $100 is enough here in india for pocket money as for middle class peoples.
    Life changed when one day My friend Akshit proposed a plan why not offer this websites to the peoples around here like something as Assets or virtual property and as each website was making good amount monthly , it will be a handsome proposal. The idea was not bad as we have a lot of companies around in the market who offers investment plans like deposit $1k for 5 years and get $2k , well we offering something better than that . We started making some leaflets as

    Be a part of Future World and Enhance your Lifestyle Now.
    Want to own a property which doesn?t need to be look after? No security to protect and values more than Land? Not have enough money to purchase plots for $20k or $25k?
    Well we have the solutions.
    Own a Virtual property, a constant earning website , that values much less , affordable and generate revenue monthly with google adsense and be a part of future world.

    This is going to be crazy , our expectations are high but we have doubts , that we are going to be bombarded by a lot of questions like what is internet and how they can make money , we need to elaborate them the whole process of google adsense and advertisements.

    We asked the newspaperman to put the leaflets in each paper and supply it up. Does it does magic? Yes it did. On the very first day we got more than 50 calls and we missed a lot as there is only 2 numbers mentioned in the leaflets.
    We managed to make 17 leads on the very first day. Which goes to $17k , not bad on the first day.
    As we are doing this we got a shit load of google adsense and I started thinking what happened if someday their account got banned as one of ours happened in very past. I was started thinking of supplements like amazon , clickbank and selling ads on buysellads and other cpa programmes.
    Applied and then re-innovate was not easy as adsense was making very good and offering them with something new will risk the business , but we didn?t replace adsense though we added some new monetizing methods into the sites and make them reach that level of earning.

    As after a year we made some real handsome money and I own 2 saloon cars , a big bunglow and my own office to deal with big clients.
    Yes, now we gathered enough attention to attract Big fishes of the markets and wanted to introduce some offers and commission programme for local unemployed boys.

    We introduced 10% commission programme to the new recruited boys to go to the public and make them introduce with our services.

    But my mind was tickling how to make more , yes we are human beings and we are greedy by nature .

    I saw a rally of political party howling against party rally and showing them black flags and that flag flagged my mind.

    I came up an idea with providing publicity by online media and Reputation management.
    I have some local boys who are young enough to get carried away by political power and scrambling the names of their leaders.

    I approached one of my friend who is very close to one of our MLA?s and asked him to arrange an appointment as this is regarding the party publicity.

    I did a meeting with MLA and elaborate him , how we can do publicity by social media and our blog network and also showed him our current stats and the power of youth as they are much addictive towards internet now a days , so pulling votes will be easy and also , able to release manifestos and other extra bonuses to him.

    Easily I got a big cheque as advance and rest amount after I deliver him the publicity. It did great and party almost got great hits on the custom page as likes and supported button. We got the rest amount and then I started taking it to the next level.

    I already quitted my job and got a job offer from Government company (Steel Industry) and started working in it as it will be of great honor to work as Government Employee here or you guys can say a matter of pride lol.
    Though my mind still not stopped here and was thinking how to expand it more. I want to enter the business to the core and started discussing the online marketing strategies with Executive Director (Sales & Marketing) in office.

    I used linkedin and got connected to the professional peoples of steel, mining/media/marketing and started publicity of the services of my Blog networks and Internet marketing and reputation building.

    Linkedin works like charm and I got a huge flood of orders waiting in the queue also bombarded with a lot of emails regarding spot.

    Today I am making enough to sustain my luxury life thanks to IM and thanks to the internet marketers experience who taught me a lot in this regard.

    Now I am heading for another blog network project , as my other partners moved out as some got married and didn?t got time to pour in it , they are happy with what they are making and only one of my friend Akshit is sticking with me in this journey and will be forever.

    I will launch another blog network , this time more huge to attract and cover up more zones , hope I will get success this time also, as I have been in this field now for a lot of years.

    India, with over 1.1 BILLION people in it, and with tons of transnational corporations outsourcing labor to it, is still a "developing" nation? The OP's story is motivating, nonetheless.

    Developing Nation yes , at least we believe it here. A lot of food is wasted in government reserve and thousands of people sleep with empty stomachs. Corruption and taxes waved the nation's progress. Price rise, tax hike made life miserable. Yes we are still developing and will be developed when human will behave like human and politicians will think real about development rather than their own assets development.
    We are far behind in terms of technology , education and development. Few cities organised , few malls made, few airports claimed to be number 2 best airport in the world but yes we are still developing and we will be developed on that very day , when the taxes will go for development , education will prevail and atleast 80% educational rate will reach here.

    I did not need to plot any story for my JV investors.
    Joint ventures are meant for classification , documentation and then execution process. Also JV has its own rule , documentation , detailing talking , explanation , demonstration and plan execution in limited assets. May be you don't know how JV works I won't blame you , a lot of suckers in the internet to suck money, but that's not how JV execution ed. You'll know when it will be up and when it will be ready. This is what happen with me in real , if you think its fake its your decision , one cannot change other's mind. May be you're from different country , so scenario change seems so , but in my country interent is still a wow thing for most of people.

    Congratulations.
    However, 17 leads for $17k? I'd never have expected people to pay Rs50,000 for a website in India

    I hear you webso. Internet is a new realm for many countries. The youth is bringing it out more. I live half the time in the Dominican Republic and most people here don't even own a computer. The younger generation is pulling the WWW out for people to see especially in social media. Facebook, twitter etc. What works in the states does not work here at all. Good luck on your new adventures.

    Great stuff, you adapted to the Indian market very well, working for the MLA was very smart.

    The Western and Indian market are completely different. In India people are skeptical of the internet. But if you can allay their fears and show them the benefits they may be interested.

    Pitching to politicians is a smart idea and a niche I don't think anybody has focused on.

    Thanks bigfoot , yes you just need to know the demands and execute the same , knowing demands aren't tough things they are around us but we mostly ignores them off.
