What IM method are you willing to bet your life on? It's 2012 now. And, in case you have been living under a rock - things in the SEO world have changed. And keep changing fast. So now, to help us better realize what this means, I propose we put ourselves in an imaginary stress situation. Imagine you lose everything right now. Right this instant it all goes *poof*. All your sites, all your money and your house. What you are left with is: 50 bucks in a paypal account. Laptop. 1 domain (you can choose it's name and .XXX ) Internet connection. Broken down flat. No automation tools, no software. You have made calculations that to start getting out of this mess, you have to earn 3000 bucks (3k) in the first month, or you lose the flat and thus the internet connection. Up until then you have food, water and electricity. For the sake of this thread, you can only implement IM methods, no offline. If you have a good offline strategy though - don't hesitate to share. Now before you start throwing stuff at me, here is a friendly disclaimer: This is not phishing. I am not in that kind of situation (yet). I do not want to be spoonfed anything. However, I believe that these things can and do happen. I also believe that thinking over such situations is beneficial to staying motivated in IM. This is not a "how to make 3k in a month (newbie) ?!" thread. I do not expect you to share how exactly, step by step, make 3k in a month. So what would you do? CB? Adsense? Something else? How will you invest those $50? Fiverr? BHW service? Flippa? Remember, you can not afford to test anything, no false moves, because one wrong move and you are on the streets. I would probably: make 9 CB sniper sites (-40 for the extra 8 domains) Avg cost per domain is set at $5 Do 2 videos from fiverr and implement Leith's thread tactic. (-10) Why would I do that? a) because so far, the only thing I know that works 100% sure, tested, been there done that are CB sniper sites. And I am confident enough to bet my life on my ability to make them. This is mainly because of and thanks to BHW. b) I am not that experienced and I don't know any better. There are probably hundreds of ways better than this one, so let's discuss them here. What IM method are you willing to bet your life on?
