    I am trying to teach my girlfriend some IM methods (for extra cash for her) but I am finding it hard to put together a method for her.

    I have got her cookie stuffing myspace (she doesnt fully understand it) but has made about £40 in 3 months.

    I am trying to put together another method so she can make a bit more money.

    Is there anyone else who has showed their partner IM?
    What did you show them that was easy to understand and follow.

    yes, i am teaching my significant other im as well. he does well and follows my directions but sometimes i lose patience. we are working on a very large jv right now and split the profits 75/25. i am trying to teach him enough so he can get his own stuff going too. i learned i can't expect everyone to be on my level right away.

    i showed him how to make wordpress sites and how to find keywords to target and stuff like that.

    This is really much harder than it sounds - and can end up being the cause of fights if you are not very patient...

    My best advice for this: whatever method you are using, make sure the topic is something that they really like / are interested in - that way it is less painful for them ;)

    I've taught a friend IM. even though I lost quite a bit of money teaching him He really needed the money he was homeless living outta his car so he'd go up to caribou everyday with his laptop and work from there. He made 1k his first month and than.... went and blew it on some very dumbstuff. I'm prolly gonna end up teaching my wife 1st by having her help me with certain things so she can get the hang of it slowly and after she helps me with each specific area of what i'm doing than (hopefully) she'll understand it all and than I'll just have to help her put it together.

    that's basically what i am doing. i have him help me with different tasks and stuff but i run the show. i got him an html book for dummies and some other books to learn some things that will help too. i could do the whole thing by myself, but it helps me to not have to do some tedious tasks and helps him to learn as well.

    Nope, I don't even plan on trying. I do talk to her about it, as almost all aspects of IM heavily interest me, but it's definitely not something she would have fun doing.

    My girlfriend is more interested in the Soap channel, and when the Hills is on. As long as she has my money to go shopping, she could give 2 shits about IM.

    It's a good thing I have my Maxim 2000 Girlfriend Remote

    I think I'm lucky because my partner hasn't the slightest interest in IM. She doesn't
    stick her nose in my business ask me questions or doubt my abilities. She has her own
    job on a minimum wage that she loves doing comes home cooks me dinner and sits
    on facebook all night while I get on with my work. She's proud of what I do and what
    I'm able to accomplish from my back room office.
    I have friends who are always asking me to show them the ropes but people offline
    are the same as people online, they either want you to do it for them or they don't
    put their heart and soul into it. They think it will happen overnight with no effort on
    their behalf.
    If someone wants to make a business online I tell them "there's the internet, come to
    me with your plan and I'll help you implement it." There's no way I'm going to take my
    precious time and the years it's taken me to learn this trade and give it to someone
    ad hock. The only way they're getting that from me is signing up under my affiliations
    and putting all they got into it or I'm dropping them like hot bricks.
    you only get one life and I am not about to waste mine on other peoples.

    Amen bruv.

    My problem is that nobody believes that anything will come of it.
    Every check I show my family, gets received the same way.
    'You just got lucky!' they say.

    They just can't see the link between billions of dollars of revenue generated on the internet
    and me or anybody for that matter actually getting a slice of it. It's like the stuff of fairy tales to them. Bizarre?

    I must admit I was sceptical at first but knew I could do it.

    This is my nature.

    I have always been the one, to figure shit out first and then be expected to explain it to other peple who can't be bothered to muster up some self-belief and confidence in their abilities.

    Apologies for the rant. Now, I must get back to writing up these lab reports for college. The quicker I get these done the quicker I get back to making dollaz!

    Peace.

    I have my wife do some repetitive stuff that just drives me
    crazy but as far as teaching her how to make run an IM
    business, I'm piss poor at teaching.

    Those that can do, those that can't teach.

    Awesome posts above, its so true, what you put into it is what counts, literally let it be your passion. Everyone sees the internet but knows nothing underneath, where all the adverts come from, where the revenue goes, how MUCH revenue there is to scoop up, and best of all how many suckers there are that have a tiny percentage of our knowledge and will click any damn link lol :)

    I feel like i am in a priviliged place even being aware of the money making potential if the impronet!

    It's funny when i see people who use the computers at school googling and wasting hours on facebook and other bullshit, while I am sitting beside them making bank!

    You feel like letting them in on our little secret............................NOT!!!!!!

    my wife cried when I first got my 1st $ in adsense:D she always tells me I'm just wasting my time and I ain't gonna make a single penny out of it.

    One piece of advice, action speaks louder than words. So pick a method, implements and show the check when it arrives.

    For God's sake don't brag if you don't have proof to show yet! Or even if you have the proof, still don't brag. People will just notice your new things.

    Thanks to my online hobbies I now have a laptop and a small ride. Not to mention the money I got online is currently our bread and butter and people noticed it and keeps asking what my job. lol

    Thanks blackhatworld:)

    My wife and I both started doing this together, as soon as I started talking tech and acronyms she sort of lost interest. So I set her up with my old Ebay account and some wholesale contacts, showed her how to host pictures and a bit of keyword research,turbo lister etc. She now makes around $4K + every month now and growing :eek: it sort of pisses me off because most of my complex time consuming ventures are failing.
    She works hard for it though and is at home all day so time is not really an issue. I'm still in the 9 to 5. Fucking G0ogle! index my link wheels! your making me look bad. :spank:

    I came across a ebay.co.uk method last night which i'll run her through. Its about putting up classifed ads on ebay uk, which is free.

    If i could find a good supplier i could get her up and running on seller other products the normal way on ebay.

    Mentioned blogging. she is always buying celeb mags and hunting for holidays. So there is another avenue. I'll run her through both of those and see which one she things she can do.

    LOL, some nice posts in here. To those few who are "trying" to teach their GF/wife IM... don't bother with wordpress installations / keyword research / etc... I can only imagine how far off her interests that is...

    What you need to do is get her to do something that's in her interest...
    Most chicks like magazines right? They're obsessed with all that celebrity/hills bullshit...

    This was like 2+2 for me... all I did was just setup a site for my gf and taught her how to pick out products from amazon, insert them in a new post and write a review!!!!!

    LOL how easy was that and she loves it... better yet it's what sells! All she does is goes through the magazines picking out popular clothing / accessories / purses / whatever and "blogs" about them... I'm not saying it's a goldmine but sure as hell makes her more money than a part time job!
