    I recently saw a video on YouTube featuring Kevin Rose and Tim Ferris. I personally despise Kevin Rose and think he's a total retard who does not deserve any cent he got. With this proviso I would like to know something:

    Why is it that those who are already rich become even richer and those who just don't get it stagnate? Tim Ferriss talks about those who "have enough money" but are still getting richer. What did they do which was "so awesome". Most pages are so boring and useless today, the only thing I use regularly are filehosters, youtube and google and I don't pay for any of that.

    After all in the past it was just a lucky coincidence that something like Digg became famous and well liked. I don't know what you could learn out of that if you're Kevin Rose. But now this Kevin Rose acts as a business angel with money he never deserved. I mean for what? That douche cannot even talk properly and is utterly insecure. Why would anyone give him money even for advertising? Even today I don't know what the avail of Digg actually is. I mean as far as I know this is just a network where people are posting links of what they like so the linked site gets more hits. So why would I even watch that as a user who doesn't want to sell anything? It is obvious that people try to push their commercial websites and some retards actually trust them. But making millions out of that? That would require millions of people to attend. And why did they attend these sites and not this one or mine? I have NEVER seen a single ad from facebook here in germany outside. But everyone seems to "be on facebook".

    We are all desperately trying to find a niche, but just look at that company: which kind of niche did Digg find? Which kind of niche does Wal-Mart have?

    All huge companies do not have a niche, which is worth the name. And can't you remember the old saying:" think big "?

    I think we are doing something totally wrong here. But at the same time I don't understand what I could learn from someone like Kevin Rose or even Tim Ferris, whereas Tim Ferris is way more sympathetic to me than this retard is.

    Who can you trust in general? I tried a lot of Black Hat and White Hat techniques but first of all they are small tiny approaches which are all contrary to "think big".

    You know what I'm really looking for:
    - a feasible step-by-step method to make your business idea real.
    - and a real warning sign which tells me when I am come to a deadlock and the idea is just not feasable.

    But I guess you'll go: "Ask here, share". Do you think Wal-Mart would have shared their business idea with people they don't even know?


    I mean, there are thousands of different writings about what to do to get started, right? But this is all way too general. For instance, I don't know about how to sell product X, all I know is "to find a niche", which is wrong from the get go as it contradicts "think big" aswell as it must be a huge coincidence that your niche is actually working for you.

    Then the normal person who wants to get started does not have much money. So everything is small. And when you have money there is noone who could tell you how to think big. So you sink down to average again. This is a surefire way to be doomed financially.

    Something else: why should we start with Internet marketing? Isn't that confirmation that your abilities are not there to be found so all you can do is to sell someone else's product? People say "I earn so much with internet marketing". Don't you get how much more you made someone else earn?

    I mean go for it, show me one step by step method on this board which blends in with "thinking big".

    I can't tell you how to, but I think hating is a sure way to keep you one place, and i don't mean financially but mentally.

    But what you're explaining (about non-special things getting big) reminds me of a rap line by the rapper saigon:

    "You know why I'm rhymin' as simple as tic tac TOE?
    'cause niggaz is dumb and that's the shit that BLOW"

    I don't understand you.

    Hey dude, you're looking a little low, do you need some haterade? haha.

    Have you ever made $1,000 in a day while smoking the finest greens and barely paying attention to the world? I have. All through IM.

    Now, to get that I spent several 48 hour sessions building my kit, testing it, watching it as traffic flowed through it so I could streamline realtime. It's not something that comes without work.

    It's also dependent on how much skill you develop for yourself. I never say "I can't do that", if I can't, gimme two days and mass volumes of green and caffeine; I'll be able to. What I don't know is what I'm going to learn tonight, ya dig?

    I can't, I don't know, I don't have the skills; these are not valid excuses. If you stay in that mind set you may as well not invest your time in this. You are the limiting factor in everything you'll ever do.

    We only get what we settle for.

    Why in the world would you think that anyone would want to share this with you. Even if somebody wanted to, they will never share anything with you after reading your long rant.

    If you think Internet Marketing is a joke, you are the one wasting your time creating a profile and posting a thread ridiculing a method that is a way of living for thousands of people...........

    Right. YOU are waiting for someone to HAND IT TO YOU on a silver platter and you don't get why you haven't found success yet.

    Do you see the irony there? :rolleyes:

    You seem to be unable to deliver that link because there is none and you don't have the answer to it yourself. Only losers start an internet fight. If you see my first post as an invitation to start a fight, you are a loser.

    @all: It is always like that if people use the phrase "silver platter" in their response. Can't you just auto-ignore people who write that on this board? Such a function is very welcome.

    Stop taking that shit which made you write this, it isn't good for you.

    And all the hating answers tell me one thing: NOONE of you is successful.

    You know, back in the days of being a scriptkiddie, I saw a ton of people use that type of technique. It's a confrontational technique, based on social engineering aspects, and unfortunately it doesn't work on smart people. I don't have a need to prove anything to anyone.

    @kamikater, you've been given the answer over and over, you actually gave yourself the answer in your original post...you just aren't seeing it and your follow-up replies indicate you aren't looking for the answer but rather looking for a fight.

    "Think Big", means just that, to think big. Not to ask others for their big thoughts, but to think big for yourself.

    Let's use your Wal-Mart example. Wal-Mart began as a single small Five-and-Dime store owned by Sam Walton. Very niche in that Sam only served limited products to a very small town market.

    As the profits and experience increased, Sam grew the business to offer more products and include more locations, then ultimately he began buying out competitor's stores and chains to help him spread even further and eventually into the brand we know today.

    But it all began with a single small store in a small town niche market.

    It's the exact same model IM'ers can follow with success. Start small and niche, for example, promoting printed wedding invitations to couples planning their weddings.

    As your profits and experience grow, expand to also offer wedding favors, ebooks on writing your own wedding vows, wedding toasts, wedding gowns...and on and on.

    You start small and niche, but think big so that when the time is right you can grow and expand.

    But you have to think big, you can't ask others for their big thoughts. Building a real business income isn't a plug-n-play process. You must have ideas of your own to try and experiment with along the way.

    That is true to an extent. But how could you know what to do? By trying? By trying what?

    Honestly I do not know why people don't freak out on this board. I mean all those "get rich"-promises and those "I have millions" - fake screenshots. The more you are here the more you simply must feel the gap between you and money. You think others have it and you don't but even that might be a lie.

    Why is noone talking about it? All this lying this pretending that earning decent money is so close and the gap to reality kills me.

    Everywhere contradicting thoughts, how could a "community help" if one person thinks this the other one something else and your thoughts are different anyway.

    Seriously, why does noone complain in public? Where do others get their advice from?

    Summary:
    Problem: Promise of money -> Getting money.
    Noone thinks a second how useless the phrase "I worked 48 h" is. I worked 48h, too. But working ain't working.

    Fuck I told this injustice and bullshit in so many forums and I was regularily kicked out because of that.

    Why would I repeat there's noone who cares anyway.

    This is where imagination comes into play. Seeing what other people do, adding your own twist, or coming up with something completely new.

    How do they do this? I cant answer that anymore than you can because we dont have their thought pattern. See what other people are doing which is successful and copy them if you want.

    As for business methods/models heres 2 (1 non IM related).

    Build a business of IM real estate and rent it out for passive recurring income - takes a lot of work up front, but there you go.
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/offline-marketing/155794-guaranteed-10k-month-online-offline-hybrid-method.html 
    Heres a professional betting method which is generating a lot of interest (I have just jumped on this :) ) ROI is massive - but it takes start up capital and discipline.

    Unfortunately, that is the case for most people who are in the same category as you...it begins with S and ends with D

    You are just a fucking retard.

    How come you dont go and tell that the ppl who own a franchise ?
    Why? maybe because you know exactly how they get their money, and you can get an idea of how many stores they have and how they got their money.
    But in the online world is different because stupid fucks like you cant understand the value of something that is non-tangible. Yea you heard me non-tangible , that means something you are Unable to touched or grasped; not having physical presence.

    Most ppl that make money online have various WEB ASSETS that are non-tangible that are making them money. Thats how you make the real money , have a network of money-making web assets such as blogs,facebook pages, youtube channels, websites etc.

    Thats the whole beauty of the online world, you can make money off all of this things. Now if you want to think big you can either choose to own several medium sized websites or a bunch of 1-10 dollars a day blogs .

    Another thing i recommend is to not compared you to the other guys YET! Cause your little fucking brain cant fully understand the whole idea behind IM.

    An idea whose time has come, has only to be realized to become reality... That's sounds ZEN.. but when you think about it.. ideas are out there constantly, but having the dedication to turn a dream into reality is the real key. Sure Digg may have been a fluke and I've yet to work the "4 hour work week", but I don't despise those who do, envious, sure a bit.

    It's hard to say what can make one thing IGNITE... and another go lame.

    I'm involved with a music thing with "liquidrage" and should it ignite, its retirement money, so far it is smoldering, but I'm still adding fuel.

    yes, there is a lot of bullshit in IM. that's just how it is.

    if you are unable to handle this fact, then i suggest you quit and do something easier.
