    Ok, I am in no way making a fortune online, I'm making almost no money at all, (but this is mostly because I really began applying seriously to IM a few days ago, I've made a post a few days ago concerning my life and my experience with IM, you can browse it if you want to), you may question my credibility as much as you like, but I do have the feeling, understanding and experience of how things work, specially in a world such as the world of IM.

    This is a business, it is no different from a real world business, it comes with the same risks and the same opportunities, make no mistake about it, only because your work is made in front of a computer screen and a keyboard, doesn't make it any less of a work.

    This being said, it is obvious that IM has some unique features that you will never find anywhere else in the real world, you can work comfortably from your home, you can make your own time schedules, and you can use blackhat methods and tools to greatly improve your probability of success and consequently maximizing your income.

    The first step in trying to make money out of IM is to become self-aware of the reality that this is a business and never for one second turn away from this mindset dreaming with a quick magical road to become rich because that simply does not exist.

    The second step is to understand that no matter what IM road you choose to follow, you have to become educated about it, once again, I compare this to the real world, no matter what you choose to become, either a medic or a engineer or anything else, you have to educate yourself about it, and subsequentially graduate yourself in any of those lines of expertise, once again, in the world of IM, this road is greatly simplified, since all the information you will ever need to graduate yourself is everywhere, specially when you are on a forum like BHW, where you can educate yourself about virtually everything IM related.

    The third and final step is unquestionably to take action and implement something, whatever it is, you can read all the methods you want, but in the end, everything comes down to choosing a company to promote, and promoting it, this is marketing, pure and simple, there's nothing around it, the idea is to promote a company, and that's what needs to be done, the methods here will not make you money by reading them, it will be your understanding of them, and how can you apply them to your campaign that will make you the money.

    I have a suggestion for people still in the process of educating themselves about IM, after you have a idea of what do you plan to do on IM, CPA, PPC, Article Marketing, Ebay, etc, and after you understood all the basics of your specific IM interest , I suggest that you follow a truthful person on this forum, a person who you have an absolute credibility that is making money with that specific system, and once you find one of those persons, you just browse about their history here on BHW, or any other forum for that matter, you will understand to an extent exactly what kind of problems these people had right at the start or their endeavours and how did they gradually evolved from there until the point where they are now.

    The rest is up to you and you alone, nobody is going to help you except yourself.

    Good Luck, I hope this helps everyone who are doubtful of both themselves or the world of IM.

    Organize yourself, Educate yourself, Apply Yourself and you will become successful, I guarantee it!

    Poison?

    Since when is advertising poison, it is true that there is a great deal of scammers out there and products that doesn't correspond to half of their claims, but advertisement is still one of the greatest achievements of civilization, for both the advertisers and publishers alike, think about it!

    Well said.

    Organizing yourself can be the hardest part. It's what must be done before you can really get going. Sometimes it takes cutting back on your daily leisure... Less TV and video games, less getting drunk with friends, etc. Dont cut it all out (you'll lose your mind) but you need to put a cap on it that keeps you productive on a day-to-day basis.

    But once you get yourself organized and on the right track it's much easier to educate and apply yourself. The pieces will then fall into place and success will be right around the corner.

    99% of information on this forum of methods and techniques are "poison". Thats just my opinion of course. There is a ton of good info on here, just have to mine it out. Great motivator post. I'll bookmark it with the rest.

    I like blackmagicquellc's advice best because it's simple.


    Keep things simple. Simplicity wins.

    And of course never give up.

    ...not only "can", I HAVE to make time schedules, it's easy to get distracted - especially when working for my own. Cause it's not cashing money all the time (which keeps you focused of course) I find it easier to keep sticking to short term goals.

    It's a pleasure to push this post of yours, thanks for the true words man!
    -Thanks and rep given-

    And you bumped a 8 month old thread just to say that?
