    Hi fellow Blackhaters,

    This is to give you hope (I almost had mine lost). Online marketing is hard as breaking rocks under the sun, but it is doable. I started 2 weeks ago with a website where I combined several marketing services into packages. After so much spamming, and free promotions (Facebook, Contact forms, etc.) I finally got one order!!! Man, that feels good to see that PayPal email in the Inbox.

    Keep rocking brothers and sisters. If ONE is possible, then TWO are possible, and so forth.

    Don't give up, become better, refine, offer more value and we can get there. Now I believe....phhhuuuu...

    Wish you all heartfelt success...nobody that never did this - like you brave marketers - knows really how hard it has become. Times are not easy and once in a while it helps to have a little sign of hope - I wanted to share that hope with you all and not be selfish keeping it for myself. YOU. CAN. DO. IT! Period. Even if you have to try a thousand times. You simply can and WILL if you keep working.

    Believe me Fubsz, I've been digging myself from failure to failure, trying hundreds of methods and feeling like I'm banging my head against a brick wall. Thought the whole universe is conspiring against me...(after being laid off I started my own business with a partner 2 years ago. Long story short: he scammed me, left me with a ton of debt and nothing to show off - there is a arrest warrant out for him, here in Europe). Got back to trading (fucked over by the Broker) and now since months trying to get ahead with online marketing.

    THIS actually feels good. Please my friend, don't give up on yourself, I'm just a regular guy and if I could get some money out of the "black box" so can you.

    I think now (what did I do differently this week?), it is not the WHAT, but the HOW. I switched from hoping from method to method and started thinking more about What value can I offer. Real, TRUE value - not BS people. And THAT did the trick. The mindset, that changes how you do things and stamps quality into everyone of your actions.

    Congrats on that!! I'm still a newbie but two things I've learned so far is that you need patience and determination.

    Feels good to know you finally came through. It is also important for the newbies to know that they should stick with one method until they are 100% sure it is going to or not going to work for them. Don't just give up easily and jump from one method to another.

    Yeah nothing beats first hand experience. I never dreamed I would make 13k this year online but I did and next year I should do way better. I grew up extremely poor. Bhw is a great forum no doubt but that's not what helped me make money for me it was just a dying drive to succeed no matter what and I can honestly say between my offline business and online business for the first time in my life I'm really really content with life because now I believe anything is possible if you never give up, so NEVER GIVE UP PEOPLE.

    Good job, this thread could serve as inspiration to any newbie here so they realize that making money online is possible, just stick to one method at a time and never give up.

    Thank you all for the congrats. What I loved the most about your answers is that there are good people out there like you who are not jealous, envious - that is the idea I had in the corporate world. People would really take you down if you had a success. I appreciate you as humans and fellow marketers for the good sentiment. Really.

    Shqiptar: :) Would be nice, but maybe I should see 111 Dollars as the first step towards 111.000 ;-) I wish you well brother.

    I didn't mention THE method purposely, as that really doesn't matter. Again: the method DOESN'T matter. Believe me, I tried them all - I've been unemployed for the past six months or so and had plenty of time on my hands (and some money to burn through) to see: the method is not as important as determination AND QUALITY. If we take this business with a "yeah, let's try this shit" throwing mud at the wall to see if some sticks, than we are not going to make it.

    Put yourself in other peoples shoes and think if what you are giving out in exchange for value is value. Sales (no matter the medium) is all about value for value. It doesn't matter if it is an ad you are throwing together to promote some CPA offer - even the ad can be slightly entertaining, give your audience "something". Put your heart into it, pour some love into what you do (yeah, I know how it sounds, but it's true). On the other end are still real humans, people with minds and hearts and worries.

    Failures: I think that failures are ways to find what works. Like the Battle ship game (Sea battle) that we played as kids (basically guessing game). You try to find where your opponent has his ships through trial and error, taking notes of the failures. By eliminating possibilities you draw closer and closer to success. I think Life is a lot like this game. Try, fail, fail some more, take note, move on, try again, until HIT! Once you have a hit you try some more around that hit and suddenly you sunk that big battle ship. Accept uncertainty and you will be a lot less stressed.

    Good thinking here, too. I was thinking that maybe I could re-invest some money, back into promotions. I will need some of that money to actually buy groceries (yep, I know....it is that bad), but maybe a part could go back to fund my online venture and scale it up.

    I am not receiving government checks, since here in my country you are not entitled to help if you where self-employed previously (unless you paid into some private insurance fund). I have sent out CV's and used the free time to hit it hard with online and offline marketing. Still unemployed. No. Should correct that: I am employed by myself and fighting hard to make a comeback!
