I am new to posting on this forum. I've been more of a lurker on the Warrior, as my stats will show. I try to practice the art of listening and learning. After all we have 2 eyes, 2 ears and only 1 mouth for a reason. Like my parents used to tell me, "shut up and listen. You're not learning anything when you're running your mouth".
In the last year I have been a serious student of the IM world. I bought into the guru scams as most of us have. I've since learned better. I came to this forum after realizing there are no shortcuts and that IM is a business like any other business. I realize it requires a learning curve and hard work, and an investment of time and money, like anything else worthwhile. I am willing to pay my dues.
So far I have purchased just over 12 WSO's. Some good, some fair and some that stink. I think I've been exposed to a lot of different things in that time, but I'm still learning, a lot. So far I have implemented most of the ideas presented in the various WSO's, but I have yet to make my first dollar. I have followed these WSO's to the letter and have taken the recommended actions, but, despite the claims of their creators, it's just not doing what they claim to do and or it's taking a lot longer than advertised.
I am a person who will take action and I will follow a blueprint to the letter and then put my own spin on it when it doesn't seem to work as advertised. I know things take time sometimes, but these programs seem to be going nowhere. I have WSO's on SMS Marketing, Social Media, Mobile and WP Site creation for local markets, micro blogging, article marketing, Adsense, Video Marketing, and variations of several. I don't want to mention names and start a flame war with any of the creators / promoters. Only 1 SMS product shows promise, but will take more time to bear fruit. Fortunately these WSO's were relatively inexpensive, so no real harm and I have yet to ask for a refund for any. I consider them part of the price of admission. I did learn at least something from each, so not a total waste of money and time.
I was doing and learning IM while still working a full time job. However as of Wednesday, 9/14/2011 my personal situation has changed. My job was outsourced and I now have to scramble to either find another job or find something to replace that income with. This is my 4th layoff in 4 yrs! I have been unemployed more in the last 4 yrs than my entire working life prior. I am an I.T. Professional. This economy really SUCKS! I'm getting very tired of this dance. Usually I am a more patient person, but due to my situation, I no longer have the luxury of time.
Could anyone recommend any white hat program(s) or techniques that could be implemented quickly and economically, to help me accomplish my goal of realistically and consistently making at least $200 a day, ASAP?
I'm not looking for theory, please. I need something that if I put the program into action as described, I will be able to meet or exceed my goal very quickly. Due to my circumstance, these techniques cannot be expensive, because I have very limited funds to invest or take weeks or months. I am willing to work hard and I am more than willing to provide the creator / promoter a detailed written as well as video testimonial(s).
Please be kind here. If you can't contribute anything positive to this thread, then please spare us both the negativity and just move on. No point in kicking a man when he's down.
Thank you in advance for your help.
