    The title might seem too cocky or arrogant. I'm not the most experienced, biggest nor succesful marketeer from this world, but I really got on my way now, damn good. BHW, you changed me my life due to some stupid Google search that brought me to this forum, and I'll never forget you.

    For those who are new to IM, newbies/noobs and are limited by experience to a specific mindset regarding making money, I'll try to open a bit your mind with some random (very random) things.

    1. Stop using your time on things that makes you a low amount of money. To give some stupid examples, I'd say stop working to PTC sites although I'm sure you are not doing this, I just want you to get my idea. Time is money. Time can be invested, like money can be invested. So why would you invest your time learning/trying how/to make 10 bucks a day, when you could instead acquire enough quality knowledge and go for the big money? Knowledge can be acquired everywhere, or search for it! Or get friends who owns a bit of it. I mean, don't use your time to do something only because it seems simple and it gives you some small bucks, due to the fact that you think that simple things = quick little bucks. Well for fucks sake, if you aren't dyeing of hunger, switch your brain on the other side.

    We all know that what once seemed complicate for us all for the first time, no matter what, becomes damn easy afterwards. That's all what it takes. When you don't understand something, simply ask someone. Send a PM, ask on your Skype buddies (or whatever), open a thread in here, Google it, fix all the puzzles until you get one. There is really not much of a difference between choosing paths. There is that fake illusion that what makes you 10k a month is way harder than what makes you 500 bucks a month. Well, when you'll get there (10k/month), you'll be damn surprised.

    2. As I said I will be random, so I'll spot this subject as well: JV scammers! People, why on earth are you doing a scam on a JV? Have you ever heard of a Joint Venture? Most of them (if not all) are not a one time relationship. Let me get this shorter: Let's say I, Maduga and user X make a JV. Our project is going to generate between 3 and 5k on the first months. Then user X will suddenly scam me and get all the money and fuck up the project. Well, do you think that he was the one who won? I don't give a fuck about his stolen money, I still have the recipe in my head, and I could look for others. But why on earth would you steal 3-5k from a JV, when you know that on a long term you could make SO MUCH MORE.. my only explanation on this would be that a) user x desperately needs the money to pay a kidney transplant; b) is a con artist who doesn't know a shit about the JV he got into, but he did well on talking about it in order to join it; c) just a scammer, who only scams whatever catches in his way.

    3. Again, as I said this will be random: Newbies! Start learning the art of outsourcing. Even if this is going to be on a low level, it doesn't matter. We, web marketeers, we always search and try all sort of things (but we later realize the we excel damn good at one), so during the time you are working on your normal projects, start OUTSOURCING! I could say in here a ton of ideas, but I'm quite drunk so I'll name just a few; for example, make a site regarding FB likes, Twitter followers, YT views and so on. Make a professional site, where you would state to the visitor if he wants FAKE or REAL people. In case you didn't know, you could get fake Twitter followers with 25$ for 35000 followers or 5k FB fake fans for 5 bucks. Maybe for social impression, but for real business like REAL followers/fans etc.., prices goes up DAMN high.

    So for example, make a site like that, let's say make a directory of a site with provided services or some sort of review site; your benefit? use your affiliate link for all those prividors of any social networks stuff. Search on google! Can't find enough? Ask on BHW? Not enough replies? Ask on other forums, like WF. No replies? Come back to BHW dumb bitch, I was joking, don't go to WF. Last but not least, promote your site. For SEO, I one would go for BTB's service (not advertising, just stating my opinion) but you could go for any of them. My point is that, if you are a newbie, and you are set on a new and wannabe big project, don't try doing SEO on your own based on the few articles you've read. Apart form that, learn how to get traffic on your own, not by SEO. Think of stumbleupon for exmaple. Do you know how much/enormous traffic could you get from there? And to be damn short, it depends on how many followers you have, how many comments you have on your SU page -> site, and how many accesses you have through their shortening link to your site. I myself get loads of damn good traffic from SU. But don't limit yourself on SU. Fuck that, I was just giving an example. go out there and find out about more juice. There is really plenty.

    Short story: My first outsourcing site/project was coming out from Fiverr order regarding the design/graphic jobs. Made enough cash really enough in order to fuel side projects of mine to make them a success (steady autopilot income, that's what I love, autopilot/passive income, fuck that quick cash).

    4. Stop thinking about secret methods! These things doesn't exist. And if they exist, we would call them blue prints. Which means that they are created and used by random normal people. You can make your own secret method. Stop consuming yourself that you won't find out how an earth the no.1 earner of your PPD network makes that much money. DO NOT give a fuck. I repeat, start searching and let me know you didn't found a fuck to give. When you stress out about what others make, how much they earn, it consumes your time, energy and mood. It's the same thing like I would be jealous on a 40 years old guy who drives a new BMW. Well if you think twice, maybe when that guy was at your age, he didn't even had enough money to buy a pair of shoes. I'm not exaggerating, because you might never know a random person's past and you shouldn't care about that as well. Care about you, give fucks only about you!

    5. Don't lie yourself. Think about what you want. Would you like 10 bucks a day aka 300 bucks a month so that you could enjoy your summer on your 2nd world country, or do you want to make 10k+ a month in your 2nd world country, and live like a king? My point is not related to 8th world country or how much you make, because you will not make 10k in your first month, but it's about what decision you take. You can learn how to build a house or you can learn how to build 100 houses involving other people. There are steps everywhere, learn them and be sure to place your butt where is worth to be.

    I would really make 5 more points, more useful, but I'm damn drunk and I can't type anymore. So, chose your path, chose what you want to achieve, chose what you are good at, and you will make it in time. You will!

    Those are my kind of sentiments right now!

    I'm feel lucky that I've found people to befriend / work for in BHW. I could ask them some questions about IM and get what I need to know.

    I feel lucky to have googled and found BHW!

    Maybe the concept is lost on me. I like the monetary numbers that you list but are you creating a product and then selling it? Trust me, I'm knee deep on this site and others researching and trying to build a roadmap of how this works but it's not coming together conceptually for me.

    I'ma keep soldiering on until I do get it, obviously. Sorry to seem like a dummy :(... this is just very new to me.

    Really nice post. I got sick of picking up little money from PTC stuff. Slowly building a little venture on ebay. Some stuff just isn't worth the time.

    good read, and it made me laugh a few times.

    I think the problem with most of us newbies is that we don't know where to begin. For example, saying the $10K a month idea vs $500/mth makes sense, but what path is one that leads to $10k/mth? Most newbies can't determine winning paths, that's why they are newbies and not experts.

    I'm not trying to diss you, I'm just saying that newbies have a hard time getting going. I know lots of people, like myself, that have tried many methods (EMD, niche sites, authority sites, affiliates, CB, amazon, adsense, etc), yet we're still not at the $10K a month level. And it is not necessarily that a path is not a winner, but it takes more than just a path.

    The recipe for success is the right idea + the right person = payout (a dash of luck doesn't hurt). That's why 90+% of newbies fail, because they haven't found the right idea for their particular strengths.

    The point being that it is smarter to find your strengths first, then methods that work with those strengths. Most people do it the other way around, go through tons of methods, and don't know where their strengths are.

    I admit, I'm a complete newbie, and I have tons of fails to prove it. But, I have a few successes (not at $10K/mth, more like $500/mth) that keep me in the game.

    Some methods do make $10k a month, but it costs around $3k to invest to get the start up. As to not get scammed, people need to know that JV come AFTER you are making money, not before. As for me, I don't JV with anyone unless we got a exit strategy and a clear signed agreement for JV splits.

    Good post.I know that with my method (youtube+CPA) I can`t make 10k/month,but I`m only beggining to learn about IM an I really hope that in near future (6 months - 2 years ) if I will continue to work hard and read about many methods to make money....finally I will make 5k-10K /month.Only thing that I miss is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9VQye6P8k0.
    Take care.
    PS. Thanks + rep added

    Awesome thread! Sorry being such a newb in this even in a thread directed towards newbies I still did not understand everything that you said haha. Ive been researching outsourcing but it seems to be a very broad term, in what context is it used here? Example?

    There are 3 main reasons people dont make money:
    1. Don't have the skills they need and they are not willing to learn those skills either
    2. They are lazy.
    3. They don't truly want to make a lot of money / they have a mental block / etc.

    Is that simple.
