    2. PPD (2011)
    3. E-Mail Marketing (2013-2015) - Easiest and most reliable source of income.

    For me, it's got to be niche blogging. When I first started out, though, I also wrote for some free sites. This taught me that I'm too lazy to be a service provider - LOL! I'm not good with deadlines, either. Plus, I have to enjoy what I'm writing about.

    I'm surprised to see Adsense being mentioned as a top way to earn money. Many have been quite disappointed in these last few years, since earnings have seriously decreased.

      I just recently started using Adsense for a site I bought off Flippa, and am making a good $15-20 a day on average, $30 on a good day (made almost $30 today).

      How much were earnings back then?

      True, but most of the marketers started with Adsense, as it was the most reliable source of income for newbies. But now a days it sucks.

    In order:

    1. Selling my own products
    2. Working for clients
    3. Selling affiliate products

    I promote exclusively on Facebook. I used to promote entirely, well, here on the Warrior Forum. I usually promote through a single community platform. I usually find that if I split my efforts between two platforms, I lose more than half my revenue on the old one and make less than half the revenue on the new one.

    I have been attempting to resolve this so I can stop having all my eggs in one basket.

    Great, in order!

    - Adsense, somewhere a little over 18 thousand in four months I got paid out on till my account got suspended. Big learning curve but its one of the things that fired me off on IM

    - Clickbank and affiliate marketing, I think my first sale came from google groups when it was active. I new it was possible. One of if not my favorite place to make money with.

    - Yea, me to with Amazon associates. Couple of years ago I produced a little over $3,000 in sales in a week using craigslist just before Christmas time.

    I've also made money through cpa networks like peerfly and I guess that what google was when I was milking it with them! That was crazy! Bought myself a nice Audi A6 s-line with only 23,000 miles on it. Had trouble with a Toyota I was driving and saw that audi sitting there and got it.

    I've listed and currently have listed for affiliates to sell for me on JVzoo as well. I've gone through the clickbank process but clickbank is very high standard which is one reason why I like them but I need or want to make improvements to my product line before I list with them.

    I've never slowed down and its been a great learning curve and lot of fun!

    The worse day of my life came when Google started banning affiliate site advertising there

    These days I am doing well running a vast video marketing campaign. Plus I have a few really good joint ventures with a few websites off the beaten path that pay me a nice residual.

    Now go!..
    For me, internet marketing has served more as a gateway to being more employable...lol...

    so it'll be something like...

    a great job, turned to

    content writing, turned to

    a great job...

    n so it goes...not sure why, though i reckon it's because my oral communication skills are more powerful than my writing skills...but that leads to inconsistency in my career n major leaps across diverse sets of industries, something im not very happy about...it's like being the jack of all trades, master of none...almost at 30 now, im not even sure how to fix this n get settled with one thing or series of things permanently...

    part of it is also because, in my view, i haven't landed on my dream job...which would be a training role...

    not sure how to make a breakthrough in that domain, though i'm almost certain i can train very well...

    btw, guys, how can IM help me in starting a career as a trainer?

    should i just go ahead n start offering classes/training on YouTube? need ideas/inspiration please...

      I have used my web pages to build my brick and mortar service business.
      I have used Adsense but that kind of died for me during Panda/Penguin upheaval. However I just got a check from Google the other day. The first since then. I am thinking of YouTube partnering like some have said.
      I would like to hear about Amazon Affiliate web sites. I have several domains I could use for various businesses. So what about this last idea? What would I expect? I see I can get a set up blog on fiverr for this. I have good luck there usually.
      Maybe best to direct message me since this is a poll thread.
