    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!

    Congrats! Keep the good work up.

    And the thing you said about taking action is 100% true and the biggest problem with newbies is not doing stuff and once you get over this "knowing doing gap" you finally start making money.

    JUST DO SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!

    Action is one of the most critical keys to success.
    They say, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"

    It means once you begin doing something and have clear goals as to where you are going and want to achieve, things will begin to fall in place!

    God bless

    This is a great post.

    I hope all the people that are still not taking action see this.

    Taking action is the only way to make any money online. Having all the knowledge in the world is not enough. You must take action.

    Keep up the good work OP.

    This is a perfect newbie post. Someone who didn't just come begging for methods. The researched, tried, tried again, found some success, then came back to the forum to exchange ideas. Rep and thanks to you for setting the standard for newbies.

    Its true that this forum is quite addictive, thats because IT ROCKS!

    But like every other addiction, there`s a point when it can harm you instead
    of help you. And just being a `lurker` here is definitely one of those things that
    will harm you if you dont take action on what info you've been given

    That is whatever makes sense. To you in your business right now.
    Even if you dont have a business, and the whole point is to start one.
    START ONE THEN!

    Testing something, and testing it more, you will find for yourself some gold.
    You got to get nice and dirty to do it though. Get your hands in there!
    Make your fingers and your mind make you money. Other wise, its all just a
    waste of time. And time my friends, is the most important thing we have.
    Not money. So make your time work for you instead of working for time.

    Take action, test, and take action again!

    You can always be on the next level, if you actually have the desire and
    the drive to do so. But its up to you, nobody else.

    A good piece of advice I can give too, is to have somebody that you tell
    all your plans to (prefer NOT in IM) essentially so they can hold you accountable.
    And so YOU hold YOURSELF accountable as well.

    It works wonders. Have faith, dedicate yourself, and take all the action that
    you can! Work till your bum is sore if you half too!

    Things start to stack on top of each other once you
    start to see results. Cause you know that your doing something right!

    But you have to be DOING something!

    What was nike's catch phraise again?

    Cheers.

    Congrats dude. I haven't been as lucky as you, I've tried 3 different craigslist campaigns and made nothing from any of them, but I did make some money with a CPA lead site.

    Hey Wildcherry,

    Good for you, glad to see you took the necessary steps to make $$$. I agree with the forum, it is very intimating to read how much people know and how much I don't know. It is a fear.

    Once again nice job Wildcherry.

    Happy Halloween to All.

    Good post OP. Not everything I have done has worked, but some of it has, and the key is finding that 'some'.

    A very good post showing the results of taking simple action. It's a pity that most members will never take any action and then complain that they are not making any money at all.

    I wouldn't have disclosed this ever in any other circumstances, but the difference in attitude of 2 people really compels me to disclose... so here it is:

    This also reminds me of one new poster who started a thread recently saying that he's going to be a dad and was scared that he wouldn't have enough money to take care of the growing family needs. Well, another member asked him whether he could write articles, and then even bought him dear Red's AC Guide so that he can use it FOR making it a better world for his child when it comes into this world.

    Guess what, not a single word of thanks to either the person who tried to help him bring happiness in his family or to Redtide in return who went ahead on his friend's request and sent that person the Guide without asking any questions. I guess the person also never asked Redtide why he is giving him the guide free, or whether anyone is paying for it. Ingratitude at its very best!

    He never participated in the great AC sub-forum (on BHW) either to get more knowledge or even to say a few words of thanks to Redtide for giving him a great Guide. Whe Redtide had sent him this Guide, he hadn't even received a single cent, nor he knew who the receipient was. Redtide gave the Guide because a friend requested him to.

    So did this scammer used the world's worst sob-method to cheat other sensitive members on this forum? Quite possible. But who is the real loser? He was offered all help so that he can make his family happy... Sad, so now even a real expecting father ever comes to us and asks for help, who will ever believe him???

    I really pray that his child never grows up to hate him for being indifferent to helpful people who actually went one step ahead. I really hope that his child isn't unhappy at this very moment in the warmth of his mother's womb because of his would-be father's cheap tactics. I really hope that there isn't a pregnant mother at all and this was just a cheap trick. I feel sad for the mother and her little baby growing inside her... if they both really exist.

    Was he here to cheat using the worst type of bait? Is his wife really pregnant? Does he actually have a wife at all? Is a scam-animal? What would really happen to him when he really marries and comes to this actual stage? What he has actually done is he has sown a poisonous weed now, and by the time the real action happens, his weed will bear fruits that he will have to eat... that's how fate really works.

    On the other hand, dear guys, here is a person who puts words into actions without asking for any external help, and also goes out of the way and helps others by explaining what he did to create success in life. This additional step is what it takes to create abundance in life. That's the Law of Karma for you! Keep doing the good work, dear OP, you're absolutely doing a fine work. :)

    That is a sad story :(

    If someone is that desperate, they should be taking a LOT of action,
    testing ALL of it, and upscaling ALL of it.

    I am in this process now. It feels great.

    I am extreamly greatful to this forum, and the members here.

    By far the best forum ever!

    I was going to get redtides book, but never got around to doing it.

    Instead I am out there making JV's and info products.

    I have to integrate a launch tree though.

    Hell, I even have this one guy paying me a dollar per minute to coach him!
    And thats a price HE set!

    I love IM :D
    Like really.

    Hope if that dude was for real he's just a ungreatful prick, and he takes
    action on the info, for his KIDS sake.

    Cheers.

    Taking action is definitely the key. Dreaming about making alot of money by implementing all of these great ideas is great. It gives you all kind of motivation, and then you plan, you tweak, and you plan some more. Then by the time you finally have it all planned out, there's another hot method that catches your eye and gets you all excited. This is a neverending cycle. FOCUS on ONE thing and do it to the FULLEST. Within a year or maybe even within some months you'll be making some serious cash.

    P.S.
    I need to follow this advice a little better myself!:eek:

    Very nice post. This is almost the same thing that has happened to me lately. I have been browsing around reading supper affiliate blogs and other webmasters forums without putting much into practice. Until a friend referred me to this forum where i learnt some cool stuffs. I was so determined to make money this past week. And i built a simple landing page, used a few techniques from this forum and i didnt only make some cash i was able to rake in more than $1,000 bucks in just 1 week. I havent had this kinda success before! Few weeks back, i was only making about $300 per week but with the ideas i got here i shot it all up to $1k and funniest thing is i made almost $500 in one day some days $300 and some lower but it just gave me the motivation to do just more. And thanks to this forum again. And there is one dude, i will send him a rep. I learnt many things from his blog.

    I have had access to this site for a number of months reviewing, reading over forums, and trying to act on some of the opportunities. As a newbie the forum can be a bit intimidating. Where would you recommend starting? How to proceed without confusing oneself with the terminology such as; CPA, CL, and others. How do I remain anonymous where some sites want you to use your actual name. like Associated Content for example. I rewrote a few adds trying to get that going and when I posted the add I rewrote I saw my name underneath the writing and freaked. I have many questions but I am anxious to be where you are now. Growing!

    There are some very deep words and feelings in this thread, with highs and lows and twists, doesn't half get you thinking.
