I've been reading this forum quite a bit and have just recently joined in to actively contribute.
For about a year and a half I've been going at Internet marketing without much success. My first venture was the, all too familiar, Clickbank/AdWords combo of marketing Clickbank products as an affiliate. I spent about $700-$800 on AdWords overall and recovered about $500 from the Clickbank sales.
Recently, I decided to give AdSense a shot by building one quality website and focusing all my energy into driving as much quality traffic to it as possible, making a buck from the AdSense clicks on the site.
The site's been around for about a month, and so far, I'm lucky if I can get 1 visitor per day (when not using AdWords). I also did some AdWord marketing for the site, but couldn't get any returning visitors. I've put a few articles in EZines but they don't seem to drive any traffic and are buried somewhere deep within the search results.
Anyway, I'm not really complaining because I don't think that I put in the time necessary to get the results I want. I mean, I put in most of my free time into this, but my free time is very limited.
So my question is, does anyone have experience achieving concrete results with any kind of Internet marketing without dedicating all your time to it? For example, doing IM while having a full time job or other responsibilities. A good result for me would be to even make $10 a day, heck, $100 a month from IM would satisfy me right now!
I know that it's a very abstract question and that in order to reap any real results you need to focus on IM full-time. I'm just interested in people's personal experience and if they succeeded in doing something similar.
