Hello everyone! :beerchug: It's me again and i would like to share with you my success story! I would like to thank you all for contributing to this amazing forum, because if i didn't find it, nothing of this would have happened. So, let me start... Introduction & more details about me Back in 2008, i was still in school. I was bullied from most of the kids, i was really poor, only one of my parents was employed getting a monthly salary of just 200 euros (believe it or not, this still happens in most of the ex-Yugoslav countries where i live). We did not have a house and we were living in the house that was left from my grandparents, together with my 3 uncles. We only had 1 room. I did never go out because i did not have money, but i had a computer so i played computer games online every day, like 8 hours a day for years. I wanted to "show off" so i got into Graphic Design & Video Editing and started producing gameplay videos for YouTube. I always had great grades at school, but i am from a village, so most of the guys there bullied me just because of that. One day back in 2008, a friend of mine started talking about hacking and about keyloggers and it was really interesting, so the first thing that i did when i came back from school was googling "keylogger". It took a month and i learnt how stuff worked and i got interest into programming and i wanted to make my own keylogger. So i started learning to programming and after a year, i learnt lots of useful things. Then, i wanted to use my skills to make money, but back then, i didn't know about this place so it wasn't easy for me. I started internet marketing in 2009 and i started with PPD, i was creating my own applications and uploading them on YouTube. I did this for like a year, but i did not stick to just one method, i was also doing some videos, i enjoy making videos, so i was also doing video tutorials in my free time. In 2011, i found out about AdSense and finally in December i got accepted. I started being serious and this is when i found BlackHatWorld. I already had knowledge about Graphic Design, Video Editing & Production, Programming and in December 2011 i also learnt how websites worked, how to register a domain and how to link it with a hosting server. We are getting serious On 1 of January, 2012 i made my first website and i planned to monetize the content with AdSense and i hoped to get a YouTube Partnership. But, after 1 month of hard work and making videos & content, when i found out that YouTube Partnership is not available in my country, i gave up. I wanted to do something else, something easier, something that won't take so much time and make me some quick cash. Then, on BlackHatWorld i found out about Fiverr & other Micro Job websites so i decided to give it a try. How i made money with Micro Job sites & Social Exchange networks I made my first Fiverr account in March 2011. I made a few gigs for Graphic Design, Video Production and Wordpress installation, but i had a lot of competition so i never got a single order for that. Meanwhile i was browsing on BlackHatWorld and i found out about Social Exchange networks. I made a few accounts on YouLikeHits & AddMeFast and found iMacro scripts on BlackHatWorld for generating points, so i wanted to see how it worked. I made like 10 accounts on YouLikeHits with lots of points and finally made a new gig for Facebook Likes, Twitter Followers, YouTube Likes and other Social Media services. The very same day when i created the gigs, i got my first sale for 1000 Facebook Likes. I had more than 10 accounts on YouLikeHits with over 15,000 points and i thought why not send this guy some more likes, so i spent like 15,000 points to get him around 1300 stable likes. The buyer left a positive feedback and the next day, the orders started to flow in like crazy and i got 10 orders. Scaling it up After a few months of doing Social Media services on Fiverr, i was doing around $20 daily steady income. But, it wasn't making me happy. As usual, i would read BlackHatWorld at school because i was so boring learning the same stuff again and again - education sucks in my country. I found the thread about "The Elephant" - (The Real #1 Reason Why 95% Of You Will Always Fail) and i decided to scale it up. This thread really really changed the way i think and motivated me a lot. I started another Fiverr account under my cousin's name using his computer with a different IP. I also designed my gigs, made videos for my gigs because i already had the knowledge for that and it really helped. The second fiverr account was also successful and i boosted it with positive feedbacks. But, there was another problem, it was not possible anymore to do Facebook Likes with YouLikeHits because they got a Cease & Desist letter from Facebook and AddMeFast did not allow to add same pages that were already added to their network and because most of the Fiverr sellers used exchange networks back then, i had to cancel every second order i got. Keeping stable income I invested in Software and learnt more about automating taks, so in 2013 i was able to complete all the orders by myself. I also found ways to get real likes using content lockers and this is me after 2 years, still doing the same stuff and having lots of clients. So i was having a steady income of $80-$100 for 2 years just from Fiverr, i never had a single day being under $80. I know that most of the people here on BlackHatWorld make a lot more, but that was enough for me and i am so thankful to everyone contributing to BlackHatWorld. I just want to add that i was working on some other Micro Job sites and i also made some good cash there. How this affected my life? The money i made, really changed me. I could finally live normally like other people, i started going out, i had money to buy clothes which i did not have in the past. Before, I simply couldn't afford buying new clothes every year, when my family's salary was below $1500 per year. What i did with the money? - I built a house for $XX,XXX where i live now with my family - I got a driver's license - I bought a cheap car for $XXXX (Peugeot 307) - 2 Laptops, 1 Desktop, TV and lots of accessories for the house - I still have some cash saved and i plan to save more and reinvest it - Now i finally live like a normal person, going out with my friends & girlfriend, having fun and meeting other people Never give up! This is the key to being successful in Internet Marketing, no matter what happens, you should try hard and never give up! There are a lot of methods here, really a lot and believe me they all work, you just need your own twist, you have to be a little creative and it will work for you. My advice for you is when you start a method, you should stick to it and try again and again until it works for you. It may take up to 3 months, after 3 months if it doesn't work, you can then try another one, but if you jump here and there trying all the methods, the chances that nothing would work for you are big. I recommend you to read the thread The Real #1 Reason Why 95% Of You Will Always Fail (i can't post links, search for it) if you haven't read it already. When you find a method that works for you, no matter is it CPA, PPD, PPI or Affiliate Marketing or even Micro Jobs like me, just stick with it and scale it up. Thank you for reading my success story and please do not troll on this thread like in my introduction thread. I am not posting this to show off, or anything, i just want to motivate others to succeed in Internet Marketing. If you don't like it, simply ignore it. I hope this will help at least someone. And i know that my earnings are not much when compared to the "big guys" here, but they are still enough for me to be happy. Cheers!
