I am a new user here on this forum .. BUT not new in the industry! ... 2-3 days back I was reading a post by a guy saying he couldn't earned any money from internet and no one makes money on internet and the people who say they do .. they are liars .. errrr .. I got smile on my face and I started to think about the past .. I tho writing this long details might be interesting .... I used to be in Emailing business since 1999 ... and saw industry getting change and new improvements getting evolve, earlier days I used to make around $70 per day at that time and was happy making that much per day, using a php form allowing me to post 800-1000's of emails and a subject with a message in it .. than a friend told me to add up a box to load up emails from a .txt file and I was very happy getting it done .. after sometime I found qmail is crashed and messages got queddd''' than I got a chance to have another custom software developed worked for many days .. I think now .. maybe 2-3 years and I made very good cash at that time .... There was nothing like can spam law etc .. Emailing for someone who pays you after a month was something very big considered at that. In 2002 I got a BOTNETMAILER (developed in php) as php was considered something very strong and dynamic at that time and something really very new for us ..and I got some code added up in it and made my fortune with it.. I've made up around 150k+ that year by only emailing for big fishes around... most of them listed top on rokso and on other spamhaus sites. In 2003-2004 I started my own network of emailing servers both proxy based and direct servers .. ips are rented from different isp's around and got a lic for ISP to run dialup connections and behind it I was operating as a hosting company as well as a direct emailing server management for clients located worldwide.. At that time I felt like whole world want to have those services when there was very vast market... I've made $8k from the official ISP J in a year and made 250k+ from the side business !!.. those 2 years was great for me! In 2005-2007 I worked for couple of groups and helped them to setup their affiliate systems .. emailing solutions .. Complete business setup from scratch to Z .. from email template to merchant account for their business (doesn't matter what kind of business they have!) I do not exactly remember the figures I have made with my partner .. but I did very well again Since 2007- 2010 till now I have been involve in many small projects and earned well .. In 2011 - I started my own affiliate program .. I had an idea and I worked on it .. before starting my project I did my home work of testing how it gonna work for me and the demand around the globe for the product and I did some small testing with ebay and it worked great and the result was more than I was expecting!! I got the site(s) designed/ coded affiliate system develop and soo much work done!!! .. took me 4-6 months to have such a system developed. I signed up on this forum as I found it from google and here I am and I def explain my affiliate system to moderator of this forum Things I would like to share with all of my fellow members here that What I have learned that time never come back !!! THINGS GET CHANGE!! ... IF YOU EARNING GOOD TODAY! .. FAST YOUR EFFORTS TO MAKE MORE!! BECAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW HOW THE NEXT DAY WILL BE? .. TECHNOLOGY GETTING CHANGE PRETTY FAST .. DO NOT JUST WAIT IN QUE OR GET LAZY .. STAY FOCUS AND YOU'LL WIN! I wish I could go back to the time and do more efforts than what I did!!
