Is method X effective?
Does traffic source X still work?
Has anyone tried X?
Almost everything is effective. List building, product creation, PPC, PPV, SEO, video marketing, etc... All of these things can be effective. However, it doesn't mean you should use all of them.
When we are getting started we see so many options, so many systems that it becomes nearly impossible to know which one we should choose. And then the worst happens: we end up trying method after method without getting any significant results.
I know how it is, I struggled with this for almost 2 years.
However, after a few years of experience in the IM industry, hundreds of successful campaigns and the creation of a marketing agency that has many employees and generates 6 figures a month, I feel confident to tell people what's good and what's bad, what's easy and what's complex.
It doesn't mean that others won't disagree, what you will see below is just MY OPINION. Other experienced marketers may have a different point of view and may advise you to do a few things different.
However, if you are in the stage of buying reports, looking for methods and wondering how other people make so much money with IM while you just spend your hard earned cashed, I highly recommend you to take the image below under consideration. If you follow it, it will help you to shorten your learning curve dramatically.
I hope it helps!
