Hi,

I have been searching online money making for years. I recently got commission blueprint 2.0 and working through it but finding it difficult and saying to myself there should be something simpler for a newbie. I don't want to pay any money for ad words campaign or paid traffic as I have lost $5000 in the past on scam schemes.

Anyone recommend me a course a simple one? Is Chris Farrell membership site number 1 on the internet I hear?

Thanks.

    That is an advanced course, and Steve Clayton really packs a ton of info in that product. I have the original of that product (1.0?).

    Chris Farrell, imho, would be a good fit for you based on where you currently are.

      You need to learn the basics of SEO first. I highly suggest not spending any money on adwords when you're new, because most likely you're going to lose money.

      You can drive traffic by writing articles, creating blogs, making videos, building backlinks, etc.

      You also need to get the word "fast system" out of your mind. This is a business and it needs time to grow. If you find a quick way to make lots of money online, please let all of us know about it.

        You may want to look into Ed Dale's "30 Day Challenge". I've heard good things about that program, but I have no experience with it.

        Just food for thought...

          Adwords for a newbie is a no unless you get some proper training first because there is a lot to it. I got burned in my first year with it beause i jumped straight in.

          My recommendation is beware of the long salesletter that promises massive riches and find something more subtle to work on.

          Examples:

          Freelance writing.
          Web design.

          Either that or hire a really good coach but you also gotta beware of them too.

          Hope that helps even if only a little.

          I've gathered tons of tips to utilize and make money online with this free 30-day course. This is where I learned in-depth strategies regarding keyword research, social networking, and dominating web 2.0 networks. Topics may seem simple but it's how you use these simple steps to create advanced and money-making strategies in the end.

          Ed's a great mentor!

    Learn about list building and how to combine it with blogging. A great list building/managing eBook is James D. Brown's List P.R.O.F.I.T. system (just do a Google search, I don't want to get suspended for linking to a product).

    I use a combination of some of his strategies, plus my own that I've learned over time and consider my way of making money online the easiest, but most effective (and I've tried a lot, trust me).

    Good luck!

    You don't need to buy anything. If you want to make money on the internet, read Warrior Forum. There is so much free information here that you should be able to put together some campaigns. Affiliate marketing with articles and building back links in forums and blogs to get your site ranked and drive traffic. Start with Clickbank or one or two of the CPA networks.

    This is just a thought. There are so many different ways to do it that it is hard to give advice. But I see you are not a War Room member. So, spend the $35 and go through the threads there. There are so many free reports on how to make money, you can just take your pick. If you can't make money after going through the War Room, then I don't know what to say. Thee is some powerful information in there. And it is all free, after you pay your membership.

      Right on the money! Every forum member is probably guilty of following the path you are showing in this thread. The thought process usually goes something like this. "There is way too much stuff to learn here... maybe there is a shortcut". So... we buy a package that is supposed to cut to the chase and eliminate the agony. "Well that one didn't work. I should have bought...".

      There is no substitute for learning the ropes.

    Commission Blueprint is probably one of the best products out there. It includes everything you need to know and the 2.0 version goes into detail about using SEO instead of PPC for your sites even to the point of including an entire link building plan.

    You probably find it difficult because there is so much to learn. But, believe me you need to learn it all.

    So, instead of buying something else, you might try just taking the commission blueprint course 1 step at a time - master something and then move on.

    Check out the forum over there as there is good info in there.

    The problem with a simple course IMHO is that it is probably only going to focus on 1 area where you may need to learn more in order to get a business up and running.

    I am not going down the adwords way of getting traffic as I haven't done it before and would like ot get into it with someone with experience maybe later on. There is a lot of IM courses out there but to me they all seem far too advanced and take a few weeks to read manuals and watch videos/mp3 etc?

    You've been spending years searching? What the hell are you doing man? Stop wasting your precious time and live up to your username. Stop looking around endlessly and buying pointless course already and start seriously doing something.

    I highly recommend two things to get you started right away, and for you to start understand the fundementals of affiliate marketing, and the very basics of marketing and selling online.

    1. Bum Marketing Method - Free Traffic Tips It still works even with the increase in competition. Anyone who argues that point will have to be able argue by monthly sales still generated from method. Though a few tweaks do make it better.

    2. I STRONGLY recommend that you take a look at this guy: Affiliate Marketing - The SMART Way — Super-Affiliates Work Smarter - Not Necessarily Harder… His name is Chris Rempel and he has a few products out, all are great expect for his string of affiliate genie site creators which I think I programmed like crap. His information is really what you're after. Spend time on his blog, read everything and look up his information. I won't post the links cause I don't want to be the one "hocking" them.

    Now seriously...get moving. Stop thinking, stop searching, just start moving and doing.

    What do you want to do?

    There are a ton of ways to make money online
    From passive income to direct selling

    First figure out (I couldn't tell from your post) what type of earning you want to do?

    Then find a coach that works in that field

    Sometimes without exact action steps we can feel lost at times. And I apologize for the 5k lost in scams. But before you call it a scam; did you do everything possible to make it work? Just curious.

    But I also have heard some good things about Ed Dale's "30 Day Challenge" that Bill Farnham mentioned.

    Commission Blueprint is a GREAT product and should have most of the things you need to make some money online. And although the learning curve is steep, sometimes it's better. Do you want to become successful gradually or rapidly?

    Ahh well that's my 2 cents.

    Good luck to you and hopefully we will be able to work together in the future.

    Cheers!

      I don't necessarily agree with the whole "Don't buy anything method." I think there IS a lot of good information out there for free, but you won't necessarily know how to filter it out of the bad information, especially if you're new.

      But you definitely shouldn't buy everything! Find a marketer that you look up to and want to emulate (you like their business plan, methods, etc.) Then buy their product and start implementing stuff.

      Focus on building a business instead of trying to make money. It won't grow fast at first, but it will grow slowly if you work at it. If you don't give up by this time next year you should be well on your way to working full time online.

      But you MUST get out of the get rich quick mindset first.

    Never spend any money on any money making program. You have learned your lesson the hard way. Now you know all scams and hypes. Coaching also do work. Those who make money are no better than you. Don't rush, take your time and learn the basics. It will all add up, and you will be making before you know.

    Hey man, not to spout out on or push a certain product I am actually help test on, but it might not hurt to look into Gary Gregory's new MOBS product coming out this summer. Very new affiliate marketer friendly, not a hyped up deal like most of the scams are, and Gary has been using it for over a year and making lots of money from it. Wouldn't hurt to give it a peek.

    Brave Heart, you might want to learn the fundamentals first, like keywords research, copywriting, FTP, installing wordpress etc. Then pick a product to promote, write a presell page for it then start sending traffic to it. (can be youtube, ezine articles etc)

    Don't send anymore money, go use free webhost like 50webs and put in $10 for a .com domain name and you're good to go.

    Start DOING NOW instead of reading, you read enough. Good luck.

    I offer a product to people wanting to make money online. A very common reason for refunds I get is that:
    "there is too much to learn, I want to make $100 per day now" or
    "your method is too hard, is there an easier way"
    etc.

    If they are not willing to implement or learn IM basics, how can they possibly make money online.

    I now understand fully why there are so many "get rich quick by pressing a button" courses. The simple reason is that there is a huge market for it.

    Braveheart, there are no shortcuts. Like any skill, you need to invest the time to learn it or spend the money to buy the services of someone who has learnt it. There is no working easy way. If there was, everybody would be doing it and it would stop working.

    If you've been searching for years and have lost thousands and still aren't making money, it's time to stop searching and start doing. If you still believe in magic systems after epic failure, then you're setting yourself up for more failure.

    There's plenty of info on this forum and in the War Room without going broke chasing down that one elusive magic MMO system that'll make you rich.

    I am pretty much in the same boat as braveheart i am no spring chicken either so this old dog is trying to learn new tricks what ticks me off about some of these sites i have been on is where they say for just $4 or even $1 you can down load this proven system etc and then you end up paying for it by credit card, there will be pages of info about the product but the info you need to pay attention to is the part that says that after 30 days you will be billed $70 per month each month give you new program you must buy , you end up buying each month you get information overload spent loads of money, but you have not made a cent and your still no nearer than when you started
    This is a fantastic place because it gives the real facts that it does not happen over night i wish i had learned about this place earlier
    As a newbie i would like people to visit my website and just give me a quick heads up on what you think if so long as it is constructive wether praise or critiscm i will appreciate it i want to be successful and i want to be a valued member of this community so to everybody i wish you all continued success

      Here's my take. You're brand new here and not making any money but you're telling people how to make money. Why would we believe you? There are better, more lucrative niches to get into than Make Money Online if you don't really know how to Make Money Online.

      As for your site, I'm on dialup so you already lost me with video.

      Mick,

      You introduce yourself as Alex on your video and you claim that one of your sites is getting 12000 + uniques a month.

      So I'm guessing its not your video. Apart from the vid, there isn't much else to the page to make a critique on and it kind of looks like you are trying to sell something very similar to what you are having a pop at in your post.

      I echo the post above and suggest that you find a more suitable niche

    Honestly many ebook and courses aren't very useful.

    There are definately good ones as with most things; there are the good and the bad. However sadly with ebooks and courses the good quality ebooks and courses are far and few.

    It'll get you fairly confused. Personally what I've learn is to save your money instead of going for those get rich schemes. You should invest it into something you're interested in and grow on it.

    Internet marketing has many venues for profit. Choose what you like doing the best and you can also find a ton of FREE ebooks and resources out there. You don't necessary have to pay for ebooks many ebooks are actually just rewritten information so you'll find many online.

    Also another good option would be to go on the WSO. Many WSOs on here are very successful and many Warriors have true intentions to help others which is what I like about this forum. Also you can easily judge the quality of a product on this forum a lot easier than just looking for it out in the open seas where there are so many fake reviews and affiliate sites.

    Essentially what I'm saying is many ebooks and courses will do you no good especially those get rich quick schemes. If you do choose to purchase one a good place to find it would be on this forum in the WSOs.

    Also don't get too distracted sometimes when you read too much you can get confused and disoriented ending up with nothing but money spent in different areas and nothing accomplished.

    This was what I experienced for a good couple months till I became more focus. It's always good to learn but sometimes I can get too carried away with reading forums and ebooks that I don't do anything.

    You can't make money if all you're doing is learning.
