    They all still work. It's not the strategy that determines success - it's how you implement it and how much effort you put into it.

        Very true FOCUS is the one thing that can make or break any of the strategies above

      I think using a number of strategies in tandem is the best solution, There's no one-size-fits-all in internet marketing.

          All still works.

          Problem " target will be buyers" beside " traffic "

          some managed to get traffic a lot but not target buyers

          some get less traffic yet shock to get target buyers.


          IM is magic

    Create a good product is always the best solution: is similar to Affiliate but you don t earnonly a fee
    but all the product's price and you have less of competitors.

    What systems works in 2015?

    The answer is to have a good funnel strategy:
    so focus on converting rate and on getting targetted traffic.
    The best way is PPC (AdWords, Facebook Ads, Bing ads......)

    AdSense is the low risk solution: you need to work with your blog without spendig on PPC!

    Product creation is obviously the most profitable (if you have researched your market needs and offer a good solution of course) and have a good converting sales page. 100% profit for you. Concentrate on a couple of traffic strategies - both paid and free - and build your list at the same time.

    Test what works and put your efforts into that. It will take a lot of work and time. No overnight riches but if you persist you will succeed. Don't chase the money. You will get very frustrated.

    All are viable ways to make money online. Although I must say , the Adsense and to a degree SEO are more about making money and less about building a solid business

    To be successful in IM you have to think like the successful ones. Paid traffic (especially solo ads) is the quickest and easiest way to get sales and increase your earnings. Most importantly you need to set up a landing page to build up your own email list before you send traffic to your Money Site. As the saying goes " THe money is in the list" . That is how the IM gurus does it

    Offline marketing is a great way to get quality leads to buy your products. For fast results, i would recommend paid advertising. This way you can know whether or not the niche is responsive to your offer, and whether or not it's something you can really build a real business in.

    The same one that has always worked, since long before IM was anything other than a misspelled contraction of "I am."

    Find a group of people who are willing to pay for something and sell it to them.

    Everything still works.

    You just have to take action and stick to something until you get it working.

    List building should be something you focus on regardless of what other methods you use.

    For example, if you create products, you should build a list of your buyers. If you do affiliate marketing, build a list of visitors to your site: offer them a bonus if they buy through your link and sign up to your email account.

    Can anyone tell me how (and why) people who ask questions on these forums and don't know which way to go, and or really have had no great success in any of this stuff should do "product creation"??

    What really do they have to offer - ? what kind of product can they create? I find the "learn how to make a product" stuff to be so crazy.Blind leading the blind

    The good news is some people seem to have gotten wise - not every one is a home run

      Suppose there is a guy that is a computer repair technician in his day job and has done that for 5 years. He knows his stuff and enjoys it. He helps his friends and family on the side and has recently heard about the possibility of helping others by providing, let's say, a report or video about 33 ways to keep your PC running like new and they can sell it for $10.

      Same thing goes for marriage counselors, CPAs, lawyers, fitness freaks, moms that have lost their baby weight quickly after all 3 babies, people that know how to build a RC car, etc.

      That's how.

      This is typical of many people here at the forum. They believe every product available to sell is a MMO product. It is not. You can tell just by going to clickbank and looking at some of the products. They are made by everyday people and not marketers.

        You've had a couple of good answers to your question. Here's one more, one that looks more on the dark side.

        There's a method of "product creation" still out there that recommends finding an active forum with members of some authority. Ask a general question, collect the responses and "rewrite" (aka "steal") them to make a product in minutes without having to know anything about the topic. You can usually spot them when they use the "Joe Kumar" method and ask something like "if you had to start over, what would you do?" A few days later, there a spanking new product on how to start an online business.

    This question gets asked every day in here.

    I will be blunt

    Stop getting crap, buying crap, reading crap .

    Stop waisting time on a money spinner when you should be building a business with lists and leads every day.

    When you do this, you have a REAL business that will be here in 10 or 40 years.

    These strategies, worked 10 years ago, work today and will be here in 100 years, nothing will change, so stop looking for the secret. The SECRET TO MAKING MONEY ON LINE.....there is NO BLOODY SECRET!

    Simple as that.

    WORK HARD!

    Build a LIST!

    Help People.

    That is it.

    Now go and take action, and earn some real money. :-)

    The best IM strategy is like the best exercise: the one that you will DO.

    Stick with.

    Keep doing beyond three measly days. Which is what I see most people doing here...jumping to the next shiny object.

    The grass is NOT greener on the other side.

    A magic method does NOT exist.

    The gurus are NOT holding out on some vital secret.

    Persistence.

    Knowing your numbers.

    Sticking with a method and learning it inside out, until you've made it work.

    And that means taking the punches to the face for awhile. Odds are you are not going to experience instant success. I lose money all the time. It's a part of testing. Nothing is proven to work until you actually DO it.

    Stop looking for silver bullets and magic beans. Pick something that makes sense to you and get to work with it.

    If you're down to nothing and can't afford to take a loss, maybe you shouldn't be doing this right now.

      Yup this is true! You can see the true spirit of people, who are always trying to find the ABSOLUTE be all and END ALL SECRET to making money online....

      A SECRET? no, there are none, but there is hard work, and dedication to building a business. That will be here in 10 years, money spinners are just that, they will be here this month and maybe next month, but not next year.

      They all still do work, nothing has changed, just the growth of social media, which helps even more.

    Affiliate marketing is ridiculously profitable. If you've seen the launches recently, you'll have seen that there is usually at least 1 launch per month that is raking in a minimum 1 million dollars, with usually $50,000+ in prizes given out.

    For me,


    Product Creation < I just started and I'm finding limited success but lots of potential
    Affiliate Marketing < Second most profitable for me but not as easy as the following
    AdSense < Most profitable for me so far
    List Building < just started, I find it expensive but I still believe it will be worth it at least I hope
    SEO < I only do basics, not enough control over the results in my opinion
    Offline < No success with this so far I actually do IM because the size of the market that I can reach offline market is relatively small

    I'd probably stay away from AdSense. To make any real money you'd have to drive a TON of traffic to your site.

    I think product creation and list building are the best.

    The same strategies that were working when the Indians used to barter are working now.

    1. Find a product or service people want and are willing to pay for.
    2. Put your product or offer where people are looking for it.
    3. Sell your product or service.
