    You have to start now!


    Choose something, get off the forums and make it happen. You WILL fail the first time, if not you were lucky. Expect to fail the first couple times, optimize and make it work, then SCALE!



    I'm just posting this because i had a realization, I made really good money online at one point, but most of the money I made when i first started was pretty easy. I expected to continue to make money with lackluster effort. I DIDN'T!

    ONCE I STARTED PUSHING MYSELF TO PUT THINGS IN MOTION I STARTED MAKING MONEY AGAIN.

    STOP WITH THE BUSY WORK(READING, AND DOING THE EASY STUFF FIRST) AND START GETTING PRODUCTIVE (ADVERTISING, DRIVING TRAFFIC)!
    STOP READING! STOP MAKING EXCUSES! AND START RIGHT NOW!

    DON'T WAIT FOR THE PERFECT MOMENT EVERYTIME....

    BECAUSE THEN THE TIME WILLL NEVER BE PERFECT..... GET SHIT UP THERE AND PUT IT IN MOTION!

    AND START MAKING THINGS HAPPEN, MOST OF THE METHODS ON THIS FORUM CAN WORK, AND WELL. IF YOU ADD YOUR OWN TWIST AND FINE TUNE AND REEVALUATE YOU WILL SUCCEED IF YOU DON'T GIVE UP ON A METHOD--

    EXPECT TO FAIL, THEN TRY AGAIN!! (IT WILL NOT BE THE MAGIC BULLET! BUT IF YOU KEEP AT IT YOU WILL FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKS, THEN SCALE THAT.

    Sorry for the all caps, it's just some people really really need to realize this, i was stuck in LIMBO for months because i expected things to happen or had 1000 reasons to not start a project and make it happen. But if you just DO IT you start to see results.

    IF YOU HAVE BEEN ON THE FORUM AND IN IM FOR A WHILE AND YOU'RE AREN'T MAKING MONEY IT'S BECAUSE YOU AREN'T PUTTING THINGS INTO ACTION... IF YOU HAVE TRIED TESTED TESTED TESTED AND FAILED OVER AND OVER IT MAY JUST NOT BE FOR YOU THOUGH.




    WHAT CAN YOU DO RIGHT NOW TO START?? Seriously what method do you have almost done but on the backburner because you're afraid to fail? Or something that takes too long to setup, don't do it tomorrow! DO IT RIGHT NOW!



    OK END OF RANT :) , HONESTLY THOUGHT GUYS THIS IS REALLY TRUE, YOU HAVE TO CONSTANTLY PUT THINGS IN MOTION, DON'T EXPECT THE FORUM TO MAKE EVERYTHING HAPPEN

    All I see is a wall of text screaming at me. :(

    Anyways, I agree that the main reason everyone winds up failing is that they never actually try. You can't fail if you don't try--but you can't succeed either! I actually only started IM seriously a month ago and before I had just read here and there about it. Only a month later, I'm making money because I just jumped into it headlong and decided I was going to keep trying things until something worked. Research is good, but only if you actually apply it. IM is a lot like a trade--the more you work at it, the better you get.

    Yeah, I have to agree with the op.. And just to add on a bit from what I've experienced.
    1 thing that has pretty much helped me.
    Any offer will work. What you need is traffic.

    Methods for gaining traffic:
    1) Google - SEO (pretty saturated, non-newbie friendly and uncontrollable method, imo)
    2) Facebook , Youtube - Views (easiest and awesome methods)
    3) Offline (A little investment may be needed but best traffic method so far)
    4) Others - There are many other methods but I believe these are the best 3 methods.

    The methods itself:
    1) Create own product
    2) Buy low, sell higher (Becoming an affiliate means the same thing if you think abt it.)

    You can have the worst website ever created, but if you've got the traffic, you'll make money. Just my 2 cents.. :)

    Basically, that's my main gist of success..

    That is so true man. You have to DO IT RIGHT NOW and not to leave it on tomorrow. Tomorrow never comes.

    This is very inspiring. People just need to stop being lazy and start doing something, if they want to achieve success!

    I got as far as the caps, then the bold caps and just found it irritating.
    No need for it.
    The info might be good but I just couldn't carry on reading something that looks like it's been typed by a hyped up 12 year old.

    Sorry...

    Anything else felt like that was ironic... you know, while reading it? LOL

    Think I am gonna re-read to see if I missed something before implementing this idea :p

    You forgot to mention "CAPS LOCK" - seems important to the OP ;-)

    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    Home Page:
    BHW offers a lot of opportunities and concepts to make money...

    people here tell you in general how to make money..
    but not the details.... so you end up working and working
    and not showing any money for it..

    then one day... you do something out of pure luck or knowledge or whatever
    and you make your first sale... then it clicks to you..
    these people give you the over all plan... you still need to
    work..and work hard to fill in the details...

    that is why people get confused.... they think I need to read more..
    because I don't have all the details... to get the project done..
    but the reality is that the details are not on here..
    you need to do those..
    so when you start doing instead of just reading...
    that is when you start making money....

    just my .02 worth...

    Bravo for your accurate post... Most people do not take action. For those who do take action, this business is far to wide to stay on track if you do not choose a method of marketing that appeals to you.
