    I wanted to post this to hopefully give other newbies a jolt of motivation.

    A bit of back story:

    I run a legitimate online business, and most of my clients are gathered via eBay. As many of you know, eBay has become a complete mess with it's fee changes, "best match" sorting, etc. In the past few months business has gone down by about 50%.

    This put me in a depressed state. I'm sure many of you can relate. Your beaten down to the point where you think nothing will work. So what do you do? You read, and read, and read...and read. But you NEVER take action because you think "It's not going to work anyway." I was in this state for about a month. I think I've read every single thread in this section. But I never took action.

    But last night something clicked. I finally FORCED myself to take action on one of the methods here. (With a pretty substantial twist.) 24 hours later and the results are amazing. I have driven just under 1,000 people to one of my sites and the conversions are fantastic. My head is literally spinning and I have plans to expand this immensely over the course of the week. If I can expand my efforts 10x this week - at the rate I'm going now - the amount that I'll make will more than cover what I'm l losing thanks to eBay.

    Obviously I cannot tell you guys the method, and I do apologize. When I was "down and out" I would get pissed when people made posts like this. All I wanted to do was leech their method and do the same. But now I see it from the other side.

    I just want to tell everyone here to TRY. If a method looks good. TRY it. Put a twist on it, and launch. If you fail miserably, so what? Move on to your next idea. Black Hat World is an amazing place. People share information so freely here. I was an idiot to not take advantage of it sooner.

    Effort = SUCCESS. Grab a :beerglass. Get your asses to work and just DO SOMETHING!

    Congratulations that you've gotten something to work for you.. I've read tons of threads but haven't had the luck myself to get that creative light bulb above my head to light up in order to find a new way to make money that many people aren't using. I have tried though, so I'm just gonna keep plugging away at it


    Cheers,
    Rem

    Hi revis,
    I would like to thank you for your post, it motivated me A LOT!
    The person you were describing in the post was me...
    I just read, read, and read...
    But NEVER take action.
    I setup a goal for today, and I going to start taking ACTION!
    Again, thank you revis, I hope I can give you a good news when I become successful like you, and it will be my turn to motivate other people next time:D!

    I like reading these kinds of posts. It sort of snaps me back into reality and reminds me to start implementing.

    I'm also encouraged by this. I'm a complete newb, I've just been getting myself set up - PayPal, EIN, etc. Soon I'm just going to launch into something and try it, even if it doesn't work.

    Well done, now don't go spending your profits on fags and beer, re-invest =)

    (fags = cigarettes)

    This has motivated me too. I'm completely new to this and have been reading heaps of stuff. Just not sure where to start but have a specific marketing group. Fingers crossed it'll work when I finally decide what it is I'm going to try!

    It's fantastic to hear other people's results, I was getting pretty down about it.

    Nice job. Now you can turn your method into a nice little e-book and bank on that too.
