I have been lurking on this forum for about a month now, and like everyone else, find it easy to become addicted too. However, like others point out, in the end all that matters is you take inspiration, create your own twists and actually DO SOMETHING. My first test was e-whoring. On about 3 posts/day and using an autoresponder, I made $80 in two days with AFF. However, I just didn't like it, something about it made me feel dirty. And the worst part was I couldn't share with girlfriend as I was afraid of her reaction. You have to admit, it is somewhat perverse LOL Anyways, for anybody who needs to make money, it worked well for me. My second attempt was simply taking a fairly common CPA offer, adding a pretty BH twist, and putting a few ads up on CL. So far today, from two ads that have stuck (so far!), I have made $40. I am new to CPA marketing, but I have been online for some time and I am a full-time freelance web designer, so I probably have a heads up on many. But still, I consider myself a newbie and I want to let other newbies know that this is very possible. Ultimately, I want to be completely whitehat and create my own products, but I see BH marketing as a great way to bankroll future activities. That's it, just wanted to share and give other newbies some hope!
