    My wife left me with two very young children and a heap of debt - I work full time and have been doing a bit of IM - which includes a JV with another guy on here for adsense but I am only getting 25% of the profits (which Im not complaining about its just a slow process). I need to make $20k within the next 2-3 months or I am in bad street and dont want to lose my children!! Im not looking for a free ride, Im not lazy just want help from you experts on here in the short term so that I can then get myself sorted and have time for the children and focus on building my IM career (as Im a relative noob with very little experience) for their sake. Ive been a member here for some time although not totally active and know that this forum has some of the bes people on it compared to other forums that are actually making good money through variosu channes. Im looking for paid mentoring or a step by step guidance on how to do this as I know its possible - Im just being bogged down by everything else thats going on. Im obviously willing to split profits with you for your time - that isnt a an issue. Im a good guy that just needs some help at a bad time????

    Please dont shoot me down - I dont want a free handout - I know there are ways of experienced members being able to help out.

    Thanks people!!!!

    Not interested in any paid mentorship or coaching but in order to get your $20k goal I would suggest signing up with some weekly paying CPA networks so you can get your cashflow.

    Wolf Storm Media/EWA Network and I'm sure there are others. WSM is good for beginner affiliates as they're very helpful.

    The next step is to figure out how you're going to promote. If you don't have capital you need to promote with free methods like YouTube.

    Alternatively you can go offline. There are a ton of hot offers that convert well.

    I hope this is a good starting point for you. Ultimately if you want to hit your goal you will have to have laser focus. It's very possible, but it's going to be up to you.

    Thanks for the quick reply Electro - dont worry Im totally focused as the next 2-3 months could break me - and its all about my children!!! Are the networks you mentioned easy enough to get into (ie would I need to have a website in place?)

    If your just starting out I highly doubt you will make 20K in 2-3 months doing IM. If I was in that situation Id ditch IM all together and go out and get another job, spend all my time working a job where I know I am going to get paid.

    I appreciate that but part time jobs arent paying the same as what you can make online - with the couple of things I have going online Im making a few hundred $ a month at the minute - I just want someone to help me ramp up and make as much of a dent in the $20k as possible within the next couple of months. Thanks for your feedback though - as it is positive!!

    WSM will be easier to get into. I'd just explain that you're looking to start making money and you don't have much experience. The only concern they may have is about fraud. When people need money fast they sometimes don't follow the terms of an offer, incentivize an offer, or even fill out the leads themselves.

    So as long as you assure them that you're not going to do any of these things you should be fine.

    Also, you risk not getting paid if you do any of those things and when it's make it or break it, you really don't want to not get paid.

    Can you list your skills? Sort of your IM resume?

    It really doesn't matter how long you are in IM. All you have to do is to find the way that's working for you, which you understand.

    Unfortunately most IMers actually make about what they would make at McDonald's. Only a small proportion of people make anything like a decent income. A lot of IMers you read on boards are from non-Western countries where a few extra hundred dollars a month is big bucks.

    If you want to make quick money and you have little prior experience or technical knowledge, but a full time worker's wages to play with, I would start reading up on PPC (Adwords, Facebook etc) and / or buying paid traffic, media buys etc. That's the only way you're going to make $20K in 3 months starting from scratch, and you will have to work at it 24/7 to get there.

    If you don't have automation tools then SEO will take too long to make the cash you need in the time you have.

    Hey there,
    I like Electroman's idea. If the JV you are doing doesn't suck up too much time you
    should be ok. Hope your kids aren't terrors! Don't shout at them too much ok?
    (a definate risk in IM)... You'd be surprised at what you can live on, negotiate the
    debt repayments and you'll make it. Stay focused on just the CPA as much as you
    can.

    What Autumn is telling you is basically the way things really are. There's this idea that everyone in Internet Marketing is driving a Mercedes and that isn't true.

    Fact is that this is a highly competitive and very difficult way to make money. Most people who do it for more than 6 months are usually those who love the game and the thrill of the chase.

    Honestly, if it were that easy to make money online then there would be no need for Black Hat marketing in the first place because you could get ahead by just following the standard rules.

    There is no competition if you know where to look. This is easier than the job market, just takes longer to build since you essentially work for yourself, and easier than opening a mom and pop. Its about creative skill unless you have a technical ability to offer as a service. Doesn't mean you can get up and go and make 20k in 3 months, doesn't mean a Mercedes, but you can pull a living pretty easily.

    I offered you a job OP in your PM. Not 20k in 3 months but something.​

    Making money on the internet is the same as any bussiness you need to work at it. People have been disillusioned by guru's telling them its easy and you simply need to click a button and you will recieve millions.

    Yes, this is also true. If you have your own Niche and are effective at marketing or found your own little captive audience then yes, even a Mercedes and more (at the higher end) could be in your future. This is not representative of the majority of IM'ers though. That was the point I was trying to make.

    Even if you don't have a secret Niche you can still earn decent money and pay most of your bills. The thing to remember is that this is a changing landscape and you could be earning like a mad-man this month and make $0.50 the next.

    The other thing to remember is that this is not a quick way to earn money. Figuring out your niche, finding your market place and drawing traffic are generally things that not only take time but lots of trial and error.​

    There are two of three of these threads every day on this forum, just use the search feature and follow the advice others give.
