All marketers online fail for one reason: THE ULTIMATE LETDOWN. For some reason, everyone who fails at online marketing becomes a victim of the ultimate letdown. The ultimate letdown is the process of a person who has become interested in online marketing giving up upon the realization online money requires not work=reward, but work= knowledge, and then knowledge= reward. The more ebooks you buy with someone saying what I say on forums for the heck of it, the more you'll come to realize, the key to online marketing, particularly "blackhat"(ways to get around the system) marketing is focused on your ability to target sales. BTW, in my opinion, many white hat techniques are far more shady in many aspects then black hat techniques, but I have my own outlook on that. Whether you want to pretend your a sniper or a harpooner.... The whole point of online marketing is locking onto your target. I can't over emphasis this. You must target your sales. First, decide on something people want(I personally choose high end products so I can bring in more commision, plus the more you sell, the higher the commisions and bonus's go). Post somewhere people go, make it worth their time. Think to yourself... would you want that? do you know anybody who would? The best way to succeed is to relate yourself with a product you'd want. You'd be suprised at the options. Then you'll want to locate others who will want this product. There is NO greater way to make money online then direct targetted traffic coming to you. You'll want to have people coming to you. Thats what I know.
