    Hi guys,
    I've been involved in IM for quite a few years now so I am aware of most money making methods, but given that I was off for some months, I set myself a challenge to achieve a particularly small goal that will surely motivate me to keep working hard on this.

    My idea is to target $1000 a month (in Argentina that is quite some money, so I think it is a good starting point).

    I'd like to hear your suggestions, mainly from you guys that are having success in this. Some dots below of what I am looking for:


    • I don't want purely black-hat methods that will get me banned or in need of a lot of tools to keep the project safe
    • I'd like to start a project more long-term oriented, like an authority site or something brand-like. Something to continue working on safely and with possibilities of expansion
    • If possible, Spanish oriented (tried English many times having success, but I'd like to do something on my own language that surely will be more comfortable)
    • The areas were I have more experience are:
      • CPA - Youtube - Traffic to Website
      • Clickbank - Youtube - Traffic to either a website or directly to the product
      • Clickbank - Email Marketing - List Building

    I read a lot of journey threads lately and there is indeed a lot of cool methods but most of those I found involve black hat techniques, and I'd like to build something solid, targeting a simple formula for the amount of money I am trying to achieve.
    I don't mind if it takes time, if the method is viable, I will be more than happy to work on it.

    All suggestions are welcome, and thanks in advance for your assistance!
    Kind regards

    You're a member since 2012 and you're seriously asking for someone to handhold you? Would you like fries with that? :eek:

    All I read in your post is "want, want, want, want". What I don't read is "I did this, I did that, I worked my ass off on this one".

    Well, I am asking because I never found on those years a consistent method, I did have success on many opportunities but mainly on black hat things that in the end finished with my efforts wasted. So yes I did a lot of things wrong, learned in the process but given that I stopped for like a year after a serious frustration, I'd like to give this a new opportunity but focusing my energy on something that won't disappear in the next day if I take a fail step. So I don't mind if it goes slow, but looking for something solid.

    Maybe I am asking the question in the wrong place, if so my apologies I just want to read advise from those that know how this world truly works, I am serious on this so I just want to work smart.

    From 5 one or two will giveing you money and "spark" for you instead of $1k per month to $1k per day.

    Nobody cant tell you the precise method to earn stable 1k$ month. You need to do many tests, fail, success.. Its not easy.. You can try fiverr for quick money if you know what to offer.

    For a 1k/Month goal I would just sell Marketing services locally to be honest. Basically no start up cost if you know how to do it.

    The key is to never give up.

    Goals of $1k/month are best achieved by means of "working." I mean at an actual job. Who the heck gets online thinking, "Gee, I want to have just a little more than enough money to get by?" Even in Argentina you're still not talking about life-changing money. You want to be an entrepreneur? But one that makes $1k/month. I know that guy. He sells potatoes that he picks by hand.

    Funny thing about goals - setting the wrong ones always leads to bad outcomes. You set goals too high that are unachievable, and they de-motivate you when you don't achieve them. If you set goals too low such as is the case for you here then you become complacent with results as you start to get close to or actually achieve those goals. The key is to set realistically achievable goals that will still cause you to stretch for the next highest piece of fruit on the tree.

    Try something like:

    Make $20/day within two months.
    Grow that into 3x earnings, i.e. $60/day within 4 months.
    Earn $100/day within 6 months.

    For most people $100/day is a figure that can sustain them at a minimum, and many people actually find they have plenty of money left over after bills in this scenario, but $1000/month doesn't stretch as far as it once did, so I'd just aim a bit higher. Anyway, if you're still convinced that $1k per month is THE GOAL, then good luck but I'd just recommend like getting a job waiting tables or something because that's simply not an entrepreneurial spirit.
