    I'm a 17 year old.

    I'm using my dad's credit card. I have spent ~$500 and about 3 months and haven't earned shit. He has enabled some goddamn mobile notification and whenever I spend any money he'll get a text and he'll start giving me a long speech about life and how IM is a huge scam.

    I'm pretty fucking depressed right now. I'm god damn impatient I feel like deleting everyfuckingthing from my hard disk.

    I've been on and off IM throughout these 3 months because the amount of info out there really fucks my mind. I read and read and fantasize all day and don't implement 95% of the shit. I know that's why I'm not successful.

    Also I'm too fucking lazy to do manual work. I can't settle for small amounts of money. I know it's important to get small results before going for big but FUCK I just can't settle for less.

    On the good side, I do have 3 clients I'm doing SEO for... but that's another story. They haven't paid me shit yet because site isn't ranking on page1, so it still doesn't count. I know I'm coming close but I still don't see much hope (because I haven't seen any success yet.. I KNOW THE ANSWER BUT I'M TOO FUCKING STUBBORN TO LISTEN). I'm waiting for my purchased Fiverr gigs / services to complete my submissions.

    So in desperation to not get any more shit from my dad I attempted super desperate methods like Fiverr gigs and selling mega cheap SEO packages / youtube views for cheap. (like really fucking cheap. 6000 views for $5)

    This time I told myself I can't possibly fail using such easy methods. I've promoted for 3 hours and 0 FUCKING SALES.

    HOW ON EARTH DO YOU START SELLING ON FIVERR WITH 0 SALES RECORD?

    I'm fucking dropping back to depression downloading all the damn WSOs and cracked softwares and programs and shit in hope to have $1002301203 in 5minutes.

    Okay I just had to rant to feel better.
    ps- I hope this doesn't get me banned. I love this forum.

    You have to fail. It's as simple as that.

    Your failures make you millions, not your success.

    Manual work, $0.45 commissions, looking back at what you did and thinking "what the fuck was I doing..." it's all a part of the game.

    We all pay our dues to noob school before graduating. I started with writing an article, posting it to Ezine, waiting for approval, logging in to check how many readers every day... how many clicks... then back to writing another shitty article.

    It's a vicious cycle that you eventually break free from, some sooner, some later and some maybe not at all.... those are the guys that quit.

    The thing is I can't seem to convince myself to make small money for a start..
    For example PPC/CPA offers, I'll tell myself it's a waste of my time because I'm promoting their ads and making them big money while I cash in small.

    My "wtf was I doing" moment is a "wtf is this terrible moneymaking method". It may not be a bad thing, this made me go for all the stuff that makes me serious money. But well... look where I am now.

    Shit happens.

    But remember, you fall in life so that you can get back up high. Ask your dad for another 3 months, don't ever try to convince him that this will work. Just work.

    When the check starts rolling in, they will believe you. Good luck. And quit being lazy.

    Haha interesting story.

    Yeah but I didn't think it would take THAT long. I mean 3 months, and when you see live case study threads that cash in within 24hours...........

    One more thing to remember is, once you do start making money - it gets a whole lot easier.

    It took me 6 months to make my first bit of money online. Which was around 80 cents from an Amazon sale. A few weeks later I hit my first $20k month.

    Start by slowing down your spending and try to reflect on the mistakes you made so far. I also wouldn't focus on getting SEO clients until you work on some efficient methods to rank pages, otherwise you won't be able to manage a decent profit margin.

    Please stop reading WSO's it's easy to get caught up in their hype but most of them aren't effective.

    Try creating a couple of micro niche sites (work on one at a time) with adsense, they are cheap to build and easy to rank. It's a great way to get your confidence up before you move on to bigger projects.

    Remember, in most cases IM is a looong process.

    Cheers!

    lol talk about coincidence. I just got an order from Fiverr. which is weird because I didn't do any promotion......... I don't even know where it came from.

    But it's still not counted until I deliver the order..

    I have 2 clients' sites on page 2 now.. I think I should really complete the job before giving up/moving on to creating MNS.

    Thanks for the advice though :)

    Yeah... I was going to buy 1000+ teddy bears to resell at one point but thank god I didn't LOL

    I think it's important to still think that it's possible, but it's definitely not easy.

    Why offline marketing? From what I see, helping offline businesses to sell online is a more lucrative market.

    For the record, you should be charging monthly while you do the work. Don't do work you aren't getting paid for.

    Well it definitely helped to close the sale... I'll just pray that I won't get scammed I guess.

    No, you don't. Cause if you did know it, you would stop fantasizing. Work more.

    Work with a plan. Pick & Specialize in something. Differentiate yourself from the crowd.
