    Thought this would be a interesting thread.

    There is a wealth of information on BHW, so many methods, and so much expertise. But it would be good to get a resource on what YOU get your $$$ from. To give noobs an idea of what has worked for others.

    This isnt going to be a thread on specific methods, more on types of IM ( CPC, adsense mns, CL, Ebay, SEO, offline, Site flipping etc etc)

    Answer the following questions :)

    1. What is your main method for income?
    2. Do you have secondary methods?
    3. Approximate Earnings per year (XXXX$) - only if your comfortable.
    4. How long have you been in IM?
    5. Any advice you would give to others?

    Again i dont want this to turn into a specific method thread - so dont post "can you share your method.. bla.bla.bla"

    Would a awesome resource if we can get some decent information in this thread :)

    Your missing the point of the thread, it should act as a gauge as to what are the most sucessfull / common methods for BHW members. Im well aware of that forum.

    As you know, there are hundreds of proven ways to make a buck online, some work better than others. The difficult part for new IM'ers is to sift through ALL the crap floating around. It seems like the best method to making money online is to write an "ebook" on.... wait for it... "MAKING MONEY ONLINE!"

    I do article marketing, write for hubpages(passive income of like 200-325 usd per month), setup blogs and niche sites that I update once or twice a month. The blogs/sites are my MAIN earners, I monetize these with adsense. Also, I dabble in Amazon arbitrage(buy low online and resell for a couple bucks profit on amazon)

    All in all I net approx 2000 usd per month, with about 60 hours of work per week. This is HALF of what I was banking last year-guess times are rough??

    I started doing IM in 2000 but FAILED at everything I attempted. Gave up(big mistake) and then came back to it in 2005 ish.. I continued to fail but i did not quit this time! Eventually I found one method that worked and built that up nicely. I've been chipping away ever since.

    I tell everyone that gets into IM the same thing. FOCUS on ONE method at a time. Research it and then take ACTION! Don't give up if you don't start making money right away.. It may take 6 months or more to get out of the red. IM is hard work, don't expect to get rich overnight. Master one method, automate it as much as possible, and THEN begin working on a secondary source of income.

    They say don't put all of your eggs in one basket. This is true. If you do become one of the few that turns a profit online, don't get comfortable/complacent. Your one method may dry up at anytime. Paypal may F you over. Any number of things can go wrong. So make sure that as soon as you succeed with one method, start working on method 2 ASAP. Master that one and go to the third. GOOD LUCK BLACK HATTERS!

    1. I never use just one method. Always go for more than.. I'd better say.. do as many as your mind could process;
    2. Yes;
    3. Not comfortable;
    4. It's complicated
    5. Read the forum, take action, enjoy life... oh, and buy your momma something nice every now and then (2 your dad too..).

    I focus on ewhoring mostly. Pay depends on how much I put into it. I started middle of Nov. 2011. Earnings are in the xxx to mid-xxx per day so far.

    The main issue is that all of the methods which bring in the money will not be public information, I'm talking about such methods like :

    - 1 week cash machine.
    - Money through torrents.
    - Money using twitter.

    The more people using the methods, the more saturated it is the more harder you have to work for more then likely less profits.

    I suggest choosing a niche, finding what the target audience of that niche would be interested in buying, keyword research (preferably an EMD) then work your way from there.

    1. What is your main method for income? Ranking Peoples Websites for Keywords and Getting them real traffic.
    2. Do you have secondary methods? Encouraging men to join selective Dating and other Adult Websites
    3. Approximate Earnings per year (XXXX$) - only if your comfortable. $5,000-$10,000
    4. How long have you been in IM? 4 Years
    5. Any advice you would give to others? If your IM projects were short of funds, are you willing to Prostitute yourself to paying Hosting fees? If not, IM may not be for you.

    Oh darn. Jk lol

    To be honest, I cant believe people fall for ewhoring methods :/ But then again I cant believe people click the ads on my site as well. I guess once you do blackhat, you are immune to it.

    1. What is your main method for income? Multiple, including site flipping, adsense sites, amazon sites and content locking
    2. Do you have secondary methods? see above..
    3. Approximate Earnings per year (XXXX$) - Last year was around $1100, that was for a couple months, this year im hoping for atleast 5 figures
    4. How long have you been in IM? < 1 year
    5. Any advice you would give to others? Keep at it, and try multiple methods, one may not work for you, but another might. Or you might be decent in multiple ways , just keep trying.
