    i'm new and i've basically been relentlessly trying to make a single sale.

    so far the only consistent income i've gotten is from offering services (writing, etc). I can write 3-4 articles on Textbroker in an hour and make 15-20$/hr. That's fine for four hours per day, but I want to actually start seeing some results in other areas.

    I think the problem is I am too ADD and all over the place. Should I be focusing on one single thing, or continue with the stuff I'm doing now?

    for example, I am currently writing articles and including links to affiliate products, updating a niche site that is almost actually in the top 10 for my targeted keywords ( I started this site last December, but took a long break from it, it has adsense and affiliate products on it), doing a pay per call thing at CJ which I am including in articles on my niche site and links from youtube and article databases, tried a few different CPA methods, and finally some craigslist and youtube stuff.. craigslist is basicalyl trying to get any conversion with a high converting sales page from e-mail responses, so far nothing. and youtube is just linking to CPA stuff.

    basically doing whatever I can to make any sales I can and it's not working ;p

    if I should stick to one thing, what should it be? I guess i've just been trying to find what I fit into the best.. but every new post makes me want to try something different because maybe it'll work and be easier

    BTW it seems like every single thing that I start ends up failing because if I do actually get any traffic, it's not targetting the proper demographic.

    An all-rounder IM always fails =) so doing 1 thing and mastering it is the proper way
