Hello all, Just wanted to thank everyone at BHW for creating such a great community that I dont know what I could have done without. I have been here about 8 months now and have learned so many new ways of thinking about IM. When I found this place I was in a VERY LOW point in my life. I was a sucessful WH/GH/SEO guy back in mid 2000's and made a pretty nice chunk of change. Unfortunately I got lazy and stopped working for a couple years. I went from $500k in in the bank to almost nothing, I know it was stupid and a lesson learned (It was a fun ride though). Come Dec 2008 when I found this place I was DEAD BROKE. I mean really, really bad. I had been out of the game for a few years and I needed to find a way to make some quick cash. Thats when I came across BHW I spent every waking hour reading and dialing in my skills from everything you can learn here. Certainly my WH background and understanding of IM/SEO helped but the dark BH side of things was very new to me. It amazed me all the creative ways people were making money, and A LOT of it! My path to victory was as follows: Jan Feb - READ READ READ READ, and did I mention READ? Get caught up on all the popular topics on BHW. There is some pure gold out there. Get familiar with what you are interested in and dont be so focused on asking noob questions "How do I Make Money" will get you nowhere. My suggestion is to read as much as you can until you think you can ask a question that is not so generic. March - After reading my ass off I picked a method that I thought I could make happen. This was a BH method and I would need multiple CPA accounts. I started to apply to as many damn places as I could find. There are lists on this site. Use them. I spent most of the month getting approved to CPA's (applied to around 100) and setting up all the thing I would need for my method (WH SITE, Fake refer, URL rotator etc) To make a long story short: April - $3k May - $3k June - $3k July - $8k (finally got caught up on A LOT of bills and was able to scale up, only been paid about 3.5k of this so far, damn you net30 payments!!) August - $13.5k (thats what I am on pace for according to statsremote, I still have not been paid for this yet though OBV, unfortunately/fortunately I have it spread over like 15 networks so I dont make weekly payments, but I feel safer that way.) Ok now on to the NOOB giveaway Like I said when I 1st joined I was VERY VERY broke. I came across a Noob giveaway thread and I won $10 from the guys here at BHW See thread Code: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blackhat-lounge/43326-merry-christmas-noob-giveaway-2-a.html I know what you are thinking, wait a minute, this guy had $500k in the bank in mid 2005 and then he was scrounging for $10 on BHW? I know it sounds insane but thats what happens when you party like I did and invest most of your money in Florida real estate Anyway I would like to return the favor by doubling the amount and giving $20 to a Noob in Need. The rules of the giveaway are as follows: -You must be the 25th post after my post. So, the 26th post in the thread will win the money. -You must be pretty broke and need the money. -Back to back posts will only be counted as one post, but you can post more than once in the first 26 posts, just not back to back. -If you become a success here at BHW you must DOUBLE the money and return the favor to keep the chain going Good luck everyone PS - I will be donating and joining JR.VIP soon.
