Super excited BHW and wanted to share with all my fellow blackhatters. I've been here for almost 3 years now and I finally have done what my goal was from the beginning. To make my first $100 in 24hrs. I literally just hit the $100 mark 2 mins before writing this, and I'm ecstatic! Some advice to those that are having some trouble: 1) Stop asking for hand outs. Won't help you in real life and won't help you in IM. 2) Use the search button for any old methods. They still work, you just have to actually put a little thought and twist it. 3) Take ACTION! I was horrible at this! I tried a method and if I didn't see results in like 10 mins after my post or tweet or like or upload or whatever, I instantly said "oh, this method is crap, doesn't work. On to the next one" DO NOT DO THIS! You need to give everything time to mature. In my case, I'm still impatient. That's why I think adsense worked for me. I was able to hit the refresh button on my phone like every 5 mins and see an extra $.45 in my account. Instant gratification I guess. lol 4) Fail.... Yup, you heard it right. You HAVE to fail. You WILL fail. And you should EXPECT to fail. That's how you learn. I made my first $70 in adsense in July 2012. The next month August I cashed out $183. September was $304. Last month October you can see almost $900. And this was from failing over and over again, tweaking what went wrong, then fixing it and scaling up. Yup, guess that's number 5. 5) Scale up. All the wise members of BHW say "If you know how to make $1 online, you know how to make a million." So true. If you made some money from one site, imagine two, or ten, or a hundred. Exactly what I did. Took time yes, but the daily goals I set and reached kept me going. I know we get tons of threads like this, but this was more for all the newb threads that are poping up asking for "help me make money". IM helps those who help themselves. Don't give up newbs. I was like you (haha! I still am) years ago. Take what this thread has to offer and take action. You won't be a newb forever.
