If you're just starting - what is your goal/target for IM success?

Hi warriors,

This is something that seems to get missed by many people starting out.

Asking yourself the question about what your goal is can be very revealing.

For example, if you're just trying to get enough income to quit your job - you could easily end up working stupid hours doing something you don't like but can't afford to stop because it pays your bills - That might be even worse than the job you're currently trying to leave.

Maybe you understand that what you're considering is not a sensible long term plan, but right now you just need some money so you don't care - and you're definitely going to move over to something that makes sense later.

Or perhaps your time, family and life are way too valuable for you to even consider wasting it on anything except a sound business that will ensure your financial security and that of your family, so considering anything that wouldn't supporting ending up there - is not a consideration.

Many people start out in IM by getting advice like "go to clickbank and pick a product to promote" and then running around trying to work out why their efforts are not producing results, so it's understandable why people end up in crazy situations, but when you're just starting out - YOU get to choose your motivation and decide what your goal or target is. It may well need revising later (almost certainly), but do you start with your big goal, or are you starting with any small money-focused goal just so that you can start to believe something bigger may be possible?

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.

    I read recently that as of late August, Google has removed the 3 adsense units per page limit and replaced it with a policy that has no specific limit but which requires that the amount of ads not exceed the amount of content. Is anyone familiar with this and can anyone suggest how best to implement this.
