First of all I just wanted to introduce myself without boring you too much I'm 34 years old, started IM last year but stopped because it was going nowhere (GDI, lol), restarted in June 2010 and here I am today, quite confused to say the least. I know the basics (CPA, CPC, Aff. markerting, blogs, LPs, traffic, SEO, etc..), but I'm really struggling to find my groove in IM.
I haven't made a dime yet, but that's fine (can take a few months), I'm extremely motivated and excited because I *KNOW* tons of people are making money online, I *KNOW* I can do very well too, but I'm not only pulled in different directions, but I can't seem to unblock; I can't find a niche (or I'm scared of trying for some reason), etc.. My current interests and knowledge do not translate well for money. The closest I came to finding a niche that sort of matches me is World of Warcraft and that's saturated to death already of course.
There are billions of ebooks and tools online, so you know where I'm going with that. I'm researching a certain ebook/tool, sales page seems promising (as it should!) but when I read what people have to say about it, all I see is "all fluff", "doesn't work", "it's stupid", etc... I mean come on, some of them are like "Make 1,000,000 per month in a few months!" and crap like that, it makes me mad.
Right now, I heard good things about CPA, so I got accepted at Azoogle, checking out offers here and there. I've just learned how email submits aren't that hot anymore, so is Article marketing, etc... (probably just saturation). Facebook ads aren't working for me, etc... I don't have a website yet, nor a blog (I have nothing to say, yet!), and offline marketing doesn't seem to go well with CPA networks.
I'd like to hear it from you folks: how did YOU unblock? What was the turning point? What made you go from $0 per month to something, ANYTHING per month? Even if it's a measly dollar. I want to hear it.
Please share your experiences, they will be much appreciated.
