    I'm sure the most obvious answer is that we need to absorb EVERY little bit of information and ofcourse use the search function.
    Give us insight on how you got started and what you wish you could have done differently. Thanks!!

    Also, I'm talking at 500$ in ROI, not 500$ returned in a ppc campaign when you spend 600$ on it haha.

    Are you serious?

    You think people are just going to come out and tell you? Especially with the tone you have?

    Look, I have made a several hundred here and there (hardly successful) but you don't see me making threads like this. You simply cannot be spoonfed.

    The people who make this money are not going to just reveal what they did.

    Good luck

    I wish I would have wasted less time on forums reading posts from noobs who think they are experts on everything.

    This forum is good for tools you can buy, not much else.

    Get out there and fail, that's the only real way to get a good start.

    I do it all through BH at the moment, although I am looking into more "White Hat" methods. I started at $100 a day easily as a newb because my method allows it. It is not through ewhoring.

    I would say the biggest thing to do, is ACTUALLTY try something and see how much money it makes you, then scale it up until you reach your desired amount and start working on another method to support that one.

    I guess I must have worded it wrong, I am in now way wanting people to tell me what they did exactly. I'm curious about stuff like motivation, and investment.
    For example, should we start with a sample project?
    Or should we follow some of the guides and do a large project that would take months of work.. Etc..
    I'm not looking for somebody to tell me exactly what buttons to press, sorry for the confusion.

    you already know how to read and use the search function. so there.

    go and try something for fux sake.

    if you fail, try it again with a twist.

    if you fail again, try something else.

    :rolleyes:

    First, learn the basics of HTML. Then, learn the basics of PHP. Practice using both in combination. The rest will follow naturally.

    Yeah i agree that's where pretty much anyone should start. After or While doing that, the best advice I've ever heard is to stop reading as much and start doing more. Actually get out there and try something don't just sit and and expect to find something that your like HA! Thats it I'm rich now! Find 5 things you think will work then work on them. The best way to start making money is to actually try and make money. Not just sit here and read the forums all day.

    I have some great tips for you. Its a shame I don't qualify because I only make $420/day. Otherwise I would have been well up for spoon feeding you and sharing my secret methods. Ah well... Maybe I'll coach somebody else.

    Yea, I definitley feel like these would be very helpful. But it also seems like there is a very sharp learning curve to really understand it well. And it could take a year to know everything.

    you don't need to know everything, you just need to know where to look it up.

    Start by reading...then pick a method...write out a business plan...

    You have got to be fucking kidding me with this thread though. I mean come the fuck on, do we need a new one of these threads everyday.

    You will never succeed in IM, because you are to fucking LAZY to look for a method for yourself.

    Can you say "Would you like fries with that?"? If you can, better go check McDonalds, if not you are fooooked.

    I've been learning HTML since the mid-90's and PHP for around 10 years and I still don't know everything. The point of learning is not to know everything, it is to know more than you knew when you started. Pick a small project and when you've finished it, pick a slightly bigger one. It doesn't happen over night. To keep yourself motivated, choose a new IM project each step along the way. You'll be surprised how quickly you learn.

    I hope this work, I just started actually investing today. And after what you said I will try to learn basic HTML and PHP too ;) My main problem is maybe that I am only 15 years, but good time to learn.

    I have red the terms and conditions, being 15 can`t get me banned ;)

    Look I'm by no means hitting 500$ a day although its my goal down the road. However I did realize the more time I was spending here the less time I had to take action and the less I tried. I've since minimized my time on BHW and got out to the real world and started trying things, anything from ppc to cl and other classified to e-whoring and found a small method that makes me 100$ a day, now I'm working on scaling and automation. Bottom line is simply take action and get your feet wet, you'd be surprised how easy it is to start making money.
