    Not to make money (exactly).

    I'm curious to how you guys are managing your time and keeping yourselves on task and organized.

    I could use some help In this department as well.

    I work about 40 hours a week online (most of the time more). I usually write up In advance tasks I'm going to do for what hours of which days. Never seems to work out for me as I get sidetracked and either work on a task too long, or find new tasks to work on :p

    In previous year I had campaigns on auto-pilot I sometimes got lazy and didn't have backup plans in place. With my current campaign being on auto-pilot too, I now have multiple back-up plans and scenarios already planned out in order to keep the money flowing in. Proactive is better than reactive.

    What I meant was how do you organize and manage yourself when putting your campaigns together in the first place. From there, it's just self-discipline.

    The caveat for me, and probably many newbies, is how to take smart, consistent steps toward the overall goal.

    I feel I have no real script to stick to; but instead a rough idea of what to do.

    With the amount of lateral thinking that seems to be required for this work to payoff, it's incredibly easy to find new things to do that you hadn't thought of before WHILE doing what you need to do. It's amazing and terrible at once.

    Could use some help on this front too, when I work online I have a tendency to get sidetracked.

    I use one of those productivity apps. I know there aren't many Mac users here, but I use a free app called Producteev. There's tons of these type things that you can find online. I put all of my tasks on there and the date/time they should be finished. It has helped a lot. Marking off tasks makes you realize how much you've accomplished for the day.

    +1 This is awesome.
    Having a physical or digital Weekly To-Do list (you can write these out every Sunday for example) and checkmarking the ones you accomplished makes you want to keep going! Have you ever started to clean your room or house, only to find yourself wanting to clean just a little more...I sure do.

    after try IM from june till now...
    click bank = 0

    amazon at least there is some money indicated there...but haven't get the taste of first cheque yet...cross my finger I didn't break amazon rules and forever my account with them is safe...

    because one affliate program I happen break their rules...
    just right before payout day..it really owned me....:(


    I don't know why those people on click bank can get sales so easy ....
    I already try email list before...try to make the title sound interest follow from those clickbank affliate expert still....zzz
    I even try to give rewiews..on product which in fact consider good..will attract buyers but stilll...zzzz

    for me clickbank .seem hard ...to get sales..

    back to the topic..in fact just like working full time..
    have to sit in front your com update here and there..
    than do a little seo stuff etc..

    I do know some people pay others to do ...
    so they have quality life....

    well ...I feel do your self will feel more contended..at least most important money come..
    In fact I wonder there is "short cut" yes the most stable black hat seo way and getting target vistors...etc "sneaky" way to get sales??

    I do read some interest info provided here...
    I happy some blackhat members share their ideas here...
    because I do know some are dam selfish...well perhaps is due to business?
    well I don't blame them...perhaps they ownself find a way..to get more sales in an easy faster way...
    is their hardwork to explore around ...
    if tell others..their sales confirm will drop isn't?

    well I feel ....no matter what...secrets will be discover..just matter of time.
    I feel as IM we should share

    because is a cycle ....one side want service , another side provide...so the demand is there..
    I really like those willing to share their secrets of IM here...

    :)
    we make money together and happy together isn't

    Here what works for me: 1.Stick to the current to-do (and deadlines), don't deviate from it. 2.Write down all new ideas but don't go for it just yet, use it for next to-do. 3.Create your to-do list 20-30 min before end of each day. Have tried lot of other tactics but for me this is the only way to get things done in time.

    I have 2 white boards one is a blank and one is a calendar. I update both of these and put things to do on the calendar so I have some sort of time constraint, and I put ideas and schematics on the other one. I also work a 40 hour job that I have a little free time at so I will make to do lists for myself. I also thought about getting outlook going when its a exchange driven box it works with your smartphone for a crazy amount of reminders and calendars but for the time being I have been using gmail for that. It definitely helps to have time constraints and deadlines. It also allows me to have a you can stop place. If I didn't do that I would work to much and eat all my free time up.
