    Funny you should point this out

    I remember many of them use to frequent here in the old warrior forum

    way before Mike Filsaime got big, I remember signing up for his list and I still remember how he was building his list with very cheap offers just to get his list built up

    he was a hustler every where you turned he was promoting something for little money building that list till one day it all clicked for him.

    all of them started small, but they kept getting in front of the traffic till it reached critical mass.

    I find people starting off are not getting this done, they are afraid to market what they are selling and many of them get into the money making market when they themselves are not making money

    if they want to be successful there is so many other markets out there that make money in obsure niches with lots of traffic and still have low competition

    I think there's a lot of misguided focus when it comes to 'Gurus'.

    I don't understand why people think these guys are so different. I know a lot of beginners don't have confidence in their abilities, but now is as good a time as ever to do well using IM.

    I've seriously reduced the amount of IM niche related stuff I do for the last few years as there are so many desparate people wanting stuff that it's easy to get sucked in to selling too much just because there's a demand.

    I've lost track of the amount of times I haven't promoted something just because I know it's interesting but not actually very useful, only to get dozens of emails myself from others promoting it.

    There are some good guys around but it seems that this niche has become more and more populated by people who will do virtually anything to make a buck and sometimes when they do, they buy into their own hype and start calling themselves a guru and then end up having to quickly make/find new stuff to sell their followers.

    There's a fundamental lack of confidence in people starting out online - too much unreasonable expectation and a lack of confidence ends up with many people jumping into the IM niche thinking it's a get-rich-quick niche but not really understanding the dynamics involved. Success too quickly can ruin a business just as much as lack of success.

    If people just stopped worrying about what other people are doing (and how much they're earning) and built their own businesses based on sound principles - we'd have a lot more successful people and a lot less gurus.

    Over the years I've seen most of the current 'Gurus' start out and grow their businesses and seen what they've done to get there. Some are just hard-working nice guys who have stuck at it and done well. Others are not.

    When you break it all down, it's all just people doing what they can to make money and be successful - there is not secret to making money, there is nothing hidden that the 'Gurus' have access to that others don't - and not all Gurus are as successful as people think.

    The simple situation is - the grass isn't greener on the other side and you don't need anything more than a sound plan and consistent focused action.

    If you want to be a Guru - make money for the existing gurus, they'll want you to keep doing it and they'll help you until by proxy you become a guru too.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    I've been a relatively successful Freelance writer on Freelancer.com over the last several years. I haven'€™t worked totally consistently during that time, but I've done pretty well and have recently been growing my business pretty aggressively and turning up the heat! I recently got connected with a start-up company that frequently uses Freelance to get tasks done for cheap, and I had a great conversation with the founder of that company which serves as the inspiration for this article. Employers have to work hard to ensure that they'€™re getting the right person when they hire a Freelancer. Once a project is accepted and a milestone is created, it can be a major hassle to resolve any disputes, especially those surrounding the quality of the work. I don't have a lot of insight into this process but I have learned a thing or two about choosing the right employers. A lot of folks have it in their head that the customer is always right, but as a Freelancer, you have the ability to choose who is and isn'€™t going to be your customer. Here are some guidelines for finding great employers that fit with your business.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?
