    it sure is nice that you can get about 10,000 products and guides free here on BHW, but I keep seeing the same people requesting and downloading day in and day out.

    you can't possibly read or use all this stuff, and it's not very ironic that most of the people constantly asking questions and complaining they aren't making any decent money yet are the same people constantly trying to harvest free stuff.

    its nice to get things free, but if all your doing is taking up hard drive space, what's the point?

    there's like this general consensus among low earning internet marketers that they are "just waiting to make some decent money so that can invest in making more".

    well you aren't ever going to make money until you spend money, and also time.

    risk, risk, risk, separates the winners from the losers. you can sit by the pool all day reading about how to swim, but if you don't jump in, you're never going to float.

    forums are addictive, especially this one, but the five hours you spend in here could have been much better spent actually applying some of those 40,000 strategies you have sitting on your C drive.

    just my 65 cents

    Absolutely right. I also have GBs of data sitting in many folders, but trust me I have printed most of teh ebook and read them all, and I think to make some money on internet you have to take the FIRST STEP, becuase that difficult and rest is easy. so apply what you have read, I have already earned $.40 by blackhat :d lol.. j/k

    Seems to be easy pickings too...just hope I get paid from webcams.com lol

    I heard they were a legit company. I'm thinking of pushing them instead of camkings.

    I agree, folks you have to start doing, this book anit going to do anything for you, unless you resell them but thats a different story.

    More importantly we need to band together and wok for one another. Wouldnt it be great if some of the greatest black haters team up and work for one another. Just idea. We can all lavage our resources and tons of money can be made if you think about it. But what we need is a game plan, that would be the first step to building something great.

    Take this of example: Do you really think that one person created some of the great bus. around today? No. They teamed up and created something and then other move on to other projects, thats how it works. Black haters United I say lol. we all have certain skills that we could piggy-back of of one another.

    So the point is keep up with the changes, but also focus on something you really like doing and you will make the most money. Not everybody is doing the same thing, dont give up hope. Because I can tell you this not everybody is making money on line, alot of ppl wants to and is looking into it, but I believe the market is still very small.

    There my $1.00 (which is .2 cent if you think about how low the dollar is lol)

    true true stop downloading and start doing i could admit if you dont becarefule BHW can be really adictive and you could be over whelm with information overload

    this is my advice 2 all the newbies try reading 9 or 10 ebooks and then add a little twist to what you have learned from reading to create you own money making methods

    that is what i've done and i have 2 really powerful money making methods that i use everyday to make lots of money and dont even think about asking me to share those methods read and create you own methods simple as that and stop downloading a bunch of nonsense and put to use what you have learned.

    this is a great post.

    i totally agree. it's a proven fact that there is lots of money to be made online. but this money is only there for the action takers. if you don't take action, you'll just get run over and left behind by the ones that do take action.

    Yeah, everything in the post is true.
    There is a lot of great info on the forums, plus some useful stuff in some ebooks (although most are definitely NOT worth the price they get sold for)...
    Just a few days ago, I have started to apply some of the strategies, and adding new twists to it, okay... its not making $1000 a day... or even $100 a day yet... but its a lot better than just staring at your affiliate stats page and thinking "Booooohhh... why is my balance always $0.00???"
    If you done take concrete action, you will earn $0. This is a fact.
    There is some good info everywhere, and many projects can be started with just a few dollars of investment.

    I feel you. In the past I've downloaded lots of things and haven't done much with it but it did help me in the long run. After looking at the different products it expanded my mind and belief that I could actually make money online. Now I actually spend more time doing and sharpening my axe along the way.

    Yes true I hve done this for the two weeks I joined here however stumbling blocks are also made by you needing OTHER people.

    For instance i NEED some new websites just so I can apply to affiliate CPA companies I am still waiting for a geezer on here to reply to me for making them I know there is DP website and Sitepoint to buy sites but they are really expensive or crap to what I need.
    Also I posted on Scrptlance a job three times and nobody but nobody replied to do it and I had decent fee for doing it.

    So Im stuck applying for affil companies to put all this tuition in action.ALso PPI I bit wary about putting other stuff on peoples comps but even the GOOD PPI co I applied to LC not replied to my three emails over a period of two weeks. Then there is TIME where you have to wait for other people in other ares of the world to reply to things on forums etc so you wait a DAY or more for that.

    Lastly sometimes yo get sarcastic comments instead of tuition or help so your just stuck to getting to the next step.

    You bash your head against a Titanim wall with all this you feel you cannot move forward to what you want to do.
    Peace

    Yes, great post.

    As a newbie I can see myself act as the "I must have this new system" junkie : my HD is now full of eBooks and I spent hours of reading and subscribing to affiliate programs I will not use because I realize to late that the heart of the system needs a lot of traffic. Then I'm on my way to get 27 eBooks on how to generate traffic and try to pick the best and then... Well, I guess that's common to many newbies.

    I started IM in january, spent 1400 $ so far, for a return of 220 (CJ got the check) and something like another 200 to be paid (adsense, CJ, adbrite...)

    In three months I learned loads of things, and I FAILED at Adsense arbitrage, legit content website, adult dating trick and lots of others. Now I found something that's starting to work (mainly because I don't mind spending hours working on it whereas some of the previous things were a pain in the a..rm to do). Making x$ a day, working to make things scalable, needs investment to buy sites or promote... Hope that works out.

    The reading step is ESSENTIAL (I knew the difference between http and ftp 3 months ago, that's about it, nothing about adsense, affiliates...)
    But in the end, you need to devote time to a project before switching to another one.

    I read around here that you need 2 years to become a good IM, except if you read BHW, it may take you 6 months. I'll see you in 3 more months then :p

    I agree
    After you have all the tools the biggest question that enter most peoples minds that are just starting is " ok I got everything I need......now what"

    Starting is the hardest part of any project. But once you get a few views and people start clicking on your ads and you start making money. That what motivate most people to start putting up more posts and fine tuning there site.

    I remember when I got my first click off adsense it was for 0.13 cents and i was like "damn you really can make off of the shit"

    I am also guilty as charged.
    To be honost though it is a rather simple trap to fall into as so much is offered so freely here (thanks to all). When i first joined i didnt have my direction set so i basicly downloaded everything of interest in the hope something would jump out and start earning me $. Well as stated in above posts this isnt going to happen and i found that out the hard way.
    I almost had to reset my brain and start again and concentrate on what my method was going to be. Now i still read almost every thread and still get sidetracked regularly (daily actually) but atleast i have my ideas now and work on them and certainly dont just download everything offered now as i will never get around to using them all. In other words wasted space on H/D. I still dont earn bugger all but i feel atleast i have a direction.
    All thanks to this forum and its members i might add.

    There are too many bloody e-books and they can be addictive. I say stay away from them, stick to user-based guides and things that have been proven to work at first until you've made some cash that you can invest into other things. For instance I'm doing PPI and using the money I gain from that to invest into domains, applications, that sort of thing.
