    Everybody who starts this IM journey has to be skilled at something. Copywriting, Coding, Web Design etc...

    Lets say we got Joe who doesnt have any skills

    What do you recommend him to learn right now as of 2016 Dec to start banking money through the net?

    I'd recommend SEO but every person is different.

    I'd say copywriting.

    At some point you'll probably be writing:
    Blog posts/articles
    Social media posts
    Titles and descriptions for videos/posts
    Emails
    Etc

    And with each one you'll be trying to convince the reader/viewer to take some sort of action. To get them to click on your video/site/buy button etc.

    This requires at least a little thought and a quick course wouldn't do any harm.

    I think the Key is to provide Value and not just create content-filler sites with "good articles".

    Here are the things you need to be highly successful in internet marketing:

    1.) Find a system that is legitimate and proven to work
    2.) Master Traffic Generation (SEO, Solo Ads, PPC, FB Ads, Video Marketing)
    3.) Master Lead Generation (Capture Pages, Sales Funnels etc)
    4.) Master Email Marketing

    It's very simple if you know what to do, but of course it's not easy. You don't need to do any guess work. Here's what I consider to be a blueprint for success:

    1.) Find a person who is ALREADY successful
    2.) Copy him exactly and not question it.
    3.) Get results

    However, it's not going to be easy and you must have some good money to invest. It's a "Money Game" and you need money to play with. It takes Money to Make Money. It's not something you can do for free and you shouldn't try with that attitude.

    Hope it helps.

    The skill of not trying to learn too many skills and jumping from one thing to another every month.

    I recommend him have more passion and dedication to bank, bcoz any methods shared here doesnot required Coding/Web design, you have lot of methods shared here which you bank with having any coding/design knowledge, so just your passion and interest to finish your journey on IM is enough to bank

    This! No matter what route you go, SEO, Social Media or whatever, everything require discipline and patience. Copywriting is a good skill to have, same goes to SEO, social media marketing etc. But we're all just trading time to get money and you can always hire someone if you know what you're doing. Just focus on one thing at a time until you're good at it.

    "Discipline and patience. "

    This - and also being able to work out your own problem through thorough googling, that's a skill in its own right that many people take for granted :)

    If you learn this you can get past anything that you're stuck on :)

    In order to have success in IM, I would suggest you to learn and research about SEO, I think at first you need to learn from many famous and largest websites about SEO, SEM such as: Searchengineland. com, Searchenginewatch. com, Searchenginejournal. com, Moz. com,...they're all giving free basic SEO, SEM techniques and courses that you can follow up and practice as well. After that, you should apply these techniques on your own website with your domain and hosting, try your best to practical daily as much as possible.

    I believe that you can get the archive after some months you try hard.

    Good luck to you,

    I recommend focusing on learning how not to quit - you will want to quit every few days at the beginning.
