Need Motivation and Inspirational Story of IM Success

24 replies
Ok, I already set up wordpress blog, still have no content to write. But in the meantime, I'm struggling with life...need to pay bills, and other life expenses. In such conditions, stay focus, be positive, be patient, and keep the will to learn become hard work. I tend to lost focus, the temptation to try anything to get fast money become stronger instead. But in the end...desperated, found nothing to do. I even have no skill to offer on fiverr, craiglists, or warrior for hire to make some emergency cash.

I'm sure there are warriors here who once experienced same thing, struggling at the beginning, but finally succeed to cope with it and becoming successful Internet marketer. So I need such motivation and inspirational story to keep me up. If anyone had experience with life's struggle, deeply in debt, had no money at all just to have some meal, but have persistence to keep going on IM and got success, please share your story of how you cope with it and how long you got your success. Maybe I can learn something from your experiences.

Thanks in advance

    this is not new a lot of us go through this stage, especially when we don't have any money to invest so that we can get a good start. I guess we are in the same boat i started last year around this time and made only about $200 online however i managed to triple that amount since this year.

    Its not great success for me but there is hope, i was down too. I started this forum about two weeks ago and my very first post was about giving up. but i got a lot of good comments which i am sure you will too. i joined clickbank last year as well and i literal more than double the amount of money i had in clickbank over the last two weeks, my most recent sales was 3 days ago when i got a sale for $107 so my hopes are up again. I know more will come.

    Joining this forum is one of the best thing you could ever do to boast your online career, so don't give up because i know that glory days are ahead for you.

          It's power-within.com. Somebody gave it to me free, because he made no money from selling his ebook, so he quit and gave me his domain and hosting. But the problem is, I have to learn about self development to have the content, since the domain name was used to sell self development ebook

    Ok so noting is on it.

    so my options are:
    1.sell the domain name and forget about the blog for noting is on it.


    2. post a couple of articles on it, there are plenty of articles on the net regarding "self" or "human power"
    read them and you will get inspiration to write your very own, ofter you post these articles which should be anywhere between 2-5, put adsense on the site and throw up a clickbank product that relates to the topic.

    if you so wishes can could do a bit of seo and set and forget it.

    That is better than not having anything on it.
    you never know what could happen ofter.

    Please change that header image its boring.

      Thanks for your advise Nicolas. In case I decide to continue using that domain, could you advise how to arrange clickbank product related to the topic? Does it mean putting some banner or text link on the right/left pane?

      Or should I write articles and put some keywords which is linked to my affiliate link?

        I think you should use keywords in the text body then but a banner in the side bar. just one banner though. try to make the blog look as neat as possible.

        You should after pic a niche i.e. a means of online marketing, pick something that you like. e.g. site flipping, blogging, affiliate marketing, surveys etc. There are endless online possibilities just pic one that suites you linking and stick to it.

    You mentioned above that you need to learn about self development to come up with content ideas. But you have some ideas right here.

    What you're going through is a tough time in life, but you're still trying to look past it, not giving up and hoping that the future holds something better. There's some content for a few posts already You may also want to look in the "Mind Warriors" section here for some inspiration.

    Back to the main question you aksed - yes, a lot of us go through this stage. Even if you have a period of good business, it can be very up and down, especially in the beginning with the earnings as less "passive" and more "active".

    You need to think realistically about the money that you need right now. Do you need it right now and, if so, could you offer a service to tide you over? This could mean writing content, it could mean installing Wordpress, optimizing Wordpress, design, sales pages... whatever you feel you could offer a skill in. That will get the cash flowing in while you work on everything else on the side.

    Making money online is not usually quick. Unfortunately, the people who get rich quick are usually lucky, and for most of us you see steady improvements week after week, month after month. Look at everything you achieve, your first dollar, the odd $10 sale etc, as a step in the right direction and don't let yourself get discouraged.

    I hope these replies help in some way.

    Any new business owner should expect to not be profitable for at least the first year.

    Starting IM is the same - especially if you're fresh into it and don't have previous experience of business.

    Unfortunately with all the hype and sales pages spinning stories of quick massive profits - people's desire for them to be real gets the better of them and they end up working hard for 6 months (or more) and then feeling bad that they haven't succeeded.

    It's not realistic to expect to quickly create a full-time income from scratch in a new business.

    The biggest problem most people have is that they start beating themselves up when they don't get quick results and end up with a warped mindset way before they should have realistically expected to be profitable.

    It took me several years to get to the point where I could pay my bills with my IM and know why. Sure I had good months where I made a few grand but it wasn't under any sort of control and I would still have months where I didn't make much.

    It was only a few years after I started that I actually started to realise how to be able to predict what results I could get and make them happen on purpose.

      Hi Mate,

      Id also suggest taking a look through the WSO's under the warrior special offer tab.

      There are many cheap (10-20 dollars) ebooks you can buy to help you get some fast cash. Most of them are newbie friendly. Thats what I did and Its finally coming together.

      Keep your mind right and picture being successful and having money.

      All you need is ONE little thing to work and you're making $10 every day or 2. Then use that, invest and upscale.

      Goodluck, and yes we have all been there so you are not alone.

      cheers

      Rich

        Guys,

        I really owe you all for the advises. Thanks for encouraging me

        Yes, I do understand that IM is not get rich quick scheme. But if I don't start from now, I'm sure I will live in regret for the rest of my life. I just don't want to waste another time, because too many years I have wasted.

        I was working as system operator at a bank for almost 6 years. I got free internet access, I could browse everywhere, downloaded anything without limitation. But what I got from internet for 6 years were just tons of pirated ebooks, movies, porn videos (oops...), unproductive chatting etc...If only I could go back to the past, I will seriously start IM, so I should have been rich by now :p.

        Now, in my new place of work, I have very limited internet access. No webmail is allowed, only some news portal and sites that are related to my job description. I should go to Internet rental to start IM and access email. But this is where the challenge begin, I think these will be the days to remember when I reach the top someday :rolleyes:

          Hi Richest,

          I know exactly where you are coming from! I spent almost 8 years reading and knowing all the big names in IM without really acting on it. I would talk to people about IM and impress them like crazy, but then they could never quite get why I was not making any money.

          My credit cards were maxed and despite my enthusiasm and positive energy, everything I did just drained more of my energy.

          Don't lose hope my friend! Don't throw in the towel, and don't lose hope. Be teachable, be patient, and above all, don't be afraid to make even more mistakes...the most important thing is to be able to learn from them.

          There is real money to be made out there. This warrior forum is like the encyclopedia of anything that has to do with Internet Marketing or making money online! It is a gold mine!

          Take the time to read and be consistent in your learning and your mentality will start to shift.

          Hang in there!!

    Hey Richest. Look, I am also new to blogging. I have been working for 2 years on a web application for contractors and home owners. It did not work so far, but here is the scoop. During this time I learned a lot about web development and Joomla. This knowledge will stay with me when I start working on my next startup. This persistent fail problem ain't stopping me, and it should not stop you either. It is very annoying when most of the time you have to spend at your job, and try to make it out of this rat race part time. However, as Donald Trump put it: "Billionaires don't care what the odds are. We don't do what's conventional or expected". At least you are trying. Most people only dream about success. KEEP PUSHING FORWARD! HOOAAAH! Do not let the rut of every day life overpower you. You are much better then that and you know it. If you need to learn new things - do it. If you need to find new information - find it. Here are some resources that I found:

    -entrepreneurs-journey.com
    and
    -becomeablogger.com

    There are 2 free reports(1 on each website) you can get, and a word press video course. Apparently they are in PDF and in audio as well. I got them in both formats. Found it valuable.

    P.S. Apparently our blogs are going to be a bit similar in topic. Let me know if you want me to share some other resources you could look into.

    You should be HOPEFUL that you'll make some cash fast and get your business going, but also realize that it COULD take awhile, a few months before you see results.

    So be open to making things happen and seeing results ($$$) fast, but put it in your mind that it may take awhile.

    Get some content on your site, put up some offers, and focus on driving traffic to it. I would say 90% of your focus, once you have content and offers to promote, should be on driving traffic.

      Adding up to what you have said, it is a better idea to concentrate on the details rather than aiming for a fast way towards earning online. Seeking for fast solutions will only make you prone to mistakes and scams. As we all know, there are a lot of them our there. Take it slow and be patient. Profit will come with dedication and hard work.

    I started knowing nothing about
    Internet marketing at All.
    After taking a course on internet
    marketing, i start to learn from it.
    After sometime, i realise the most
    important elements to success in
    Internet marketing are :

    Stay Focus, be consistent, and
    persistent.

    If you are persistent enough,
    failure will give way for you.
