    I know a lot of people on this site are having a hard time making any real money so I want to help you out. What's the number one thing keeping you from making money? You know what I mean...You probably have thought if I only had/could do ________ I'd be making the big bucks. Let me know because I'm in the mood to help out 100% free of charge and without strings. Just post it below and I'll see what I can do

    Hey man, thank you for your offer.

    Let me start by saying I'm pretty much a total noob. I've been lurking on this forum since Jan. and reading and downloading everything I can.

    I guess I'm not quite sure how to start. I have a clickbank and paydotcom account, as well as an ufilliates account (888 casino). I also have a domain that is pretty much a blank canvas at the moment.

    So I guess what I'm asking is what are the next steps? Sorry if I sound like a total retard, but I want to know everything I can about strategies and the way successful people do this.

    Thanks for any help you can give :)

    Mud Plug sent you a pm. If your a total noob and mainly trying to get by with just clickbank (I hate clickbank) your best bet is going to be posting youtube video's, hitting yahoo answers and setting up some good targeted hubs and squid len's.

    Once you get the exp. and cash you can move on to bigger and better. These sites allow you to get your feet wet in Internet Marketing without having to put down any money.

    I would suggest reading:

    Code:

    and
    Code:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/15121-your-guide-making-money.html
    Don't forget free online class sites like craigslist, backpage, etc... are your friends

    There should be nothing stopping you from starting IM

    There are 2 types of people in this world

    1. those who see opportunity and take it
    2. those who let opportunity pass them by


    Which one will you be?

    Agree with blackmagiquellc.

    Have had a few people posting stuff for me on sites etc.... and given up after a few days saying they are just too lazy to do it!!!

    Some people want everything on a plate with no work involved. You get out of it what u put in!

    There is nothing stopping me but unfortunately I think I'm the third type of person.

    3. those who wouldn't recognize opportunity even if they tripped over it.

    Whats stopping me?
    it is the total understanding of a process to make money.

    Many many ideas on here however, like a lot of people, when you try something there is always a big gap in the process somewhere.

    So with that gap there, we always tend to try and work the process and get stuck. Then give it up after trying to find the way to continue, and cant.

    I guess also with processes in here there is always that fear of losing accounts etc when being caught doing black hat stuff. So looking for that not so black hat style of process.

    Its easy to say "set up some good targeted hubs and squid len's" but how and in what area etc.

    I am always learning like a lot of people, and have had quick a few asking me to teach them how to make money. I wish I could, because then that would mean I make some decent money on the net as well.

    I can teach them html and WP and ftp etc etc, all the technical type of stuff, but that is
    what I am good at, just got to learn the rest.

    So when those that want to teach people that dont know how, remember those gaps that make seem simple to you, but are a total mystery to them.

    madinaz, I applaud you for wanting to help others

    Try bum marketing. Start affiliate marketing through article promotion. Totally free and can be hugely profitable

    I think a vast majority of people embarking into IM are under false illusions that they are going to make mega bucks by placing up a website with one or two products joinng a few affiliate programs and placing some links in and they will hit the mother load of cash!

    There are a number of good ebooks and instructional videos out there for newbies but none cut the mustard, if you are completely new to IM and have no clue what you are doing and for some who have never dipped their feet into the unfamiliar field.

    It does take work and effort, and a lot need to know this and not to expect to be taken by the hand and given the golden platter.

    I'm sure like most members here on the BHW forum we are always bombarded with offers from the more well known marketers (not naming any) promoting their supposedly new products when in fact a good many are promoting last years or even 3 years ago products which are well outdated now to newbies and expecting them to know what to do with these software products.

    A good starting point would be to inform people the true basics and then the software possibilities if they required to completing various work they would need to complete various jobs on their websites and instruction on Traffic Methods.

    I dont believe it is. A lot of noobs really believe you have to have some money to buy things ( hosting and domains etc.)

    However they really dont realize that you can make some money just just using free stuff available..

    For me it begins with I cannot figure out what to promote. I know money is all in sales, but I don't understand or have the tools to do niche research. I think if I knew how to choose a niche (proper niche research) and how to choose the right keywords I probably could have some success. I have read a lot of ebooks but I just cannot figure out how to choose a niche and the correct keywords. I am not going to give up. I have had several unsuccessful attempts, but hopefully my persistence will pay off someday. Honestly what I have done thus far has been a huge waste of time and money. I will keep studying and hopefully succeed. I thought that I would have made some success thus far, but I have not. I am now at the point where I am looking to find a brick and mortar job because IM has not worked out for me yet. I have not worked a brick and mortar job since 2005 (I'm a stay at home mom) and now I need extra money so hopefully I can find a job and then I will be able to use more money towards my IM endeavors.

    i think your in a to competitive niche. start out with niches with less competition.

    it pays less, but the experience you gain is far more valuable.
    not to mention the motivation you get when things do start to work out for you.

    after that just scale up.
