Dear warriors;
I want to tell you that it is my 15 months of learning and practicing Internet Marketing with no result, i only made 0.84 $ from adsense thats all i got, you may ask what i used in this field, well i read every thing about I.M and startd to implement, i found it is so hard, first i started a blog putting affiliate links, but it was very hard to get traffic, i by the way never used PPc because for example to have 1000 vistors and 0.01 sale at the best senario with 40 $ commission it means 1000*1$= 1000 $ costs and 400$ sales, so i don't have that much money to pay, i tried free traffic sources, i found it also useless, let me talk about myspace i signed for 4 accounts all of them were banned because i put a link to my blog which contains affiliate links, so how can i use forum posting????? i also tried article marketing, it always rejects my articles because of the my review blog link "making-money-online-madeeasy.blogspot.com" so it becomes so boring writing articles, so i really got discoraged, i really want to know how those talkinga about 1,000 $ amonth or even more can do it, why i struggle??????????????? please help in a step by step.

Thanks in advance

      kh_l,

      I'd like to help you and the best way for me to do that is to ask you a couple of questions.

      Answer me these questions three.

      1.) You mention Adsense and affiliate links? Are those the only two profit centers for your site?

      2.) What is your biggest obstacle, lack of funds, lack of foresight, lack of focus?

      3.) What is your quest?

      Now I know that last one is a line from a Monty Python movie, but there is some significance to it. You need to start with the end in mind. Knowing where you want to be, what you want out of your efforts is key in creating a plan to achieve the goal.

      If you give me three good answers, I'll give you some free books I that I personally wrote and some free coaching too. Deal?

    if your articles were getting rejected and/or your myspace accounts getting blocked then at a quick glance it sounds like you perhaps what you were doing was verging more on spamming than actual internet marketing ... at least, in the way the article directories saw things ....

    there is a marketing element to this ... just like any good tv ad, in-store promotion etc etc ... you can't just throw up affiliate links and adsense and hope that they make you money, you need to market, to seo, to get those articles published etc..

    it can be done ... lots are doing it ... i'd take Marcus up on his offer!

      It looks to me like all you've done is written 3 posts for a blog and tried to promote that - am I right?

      Your main problem straight away is that you're trying to promote products showing people how to make money online when you're not making any yourself.

      Also, I can't read blog posts that aren't separated into paragraphs - that's one way to make me click away straight away.

      Realistically, when buying internet marketing products most people will either:
      a) buy from their own link
      b) buy from someone they know and trust - someone who has gone to the trouble of building a relationship with their readers (through a newletter or blog etc)
      or
      c) buy from whoever is offering the best bonus.

      What incentive do people have to buy from you?

    kh_l -I noticed a couple of things. The first is that you are using a review blog on products in the IM market. Maybe instead of trying to sell products about making money working from home you might want to work in another market. IM is highly competitive and unfortunately your English is perfect. That doesn't mean that you don't know what you're talking about but because the market is insane new marketers have a flood of places to learn from - and judge yours against.

    Instead you might want to do a review site (if that's your bent) in another arena. And if review sites are your interest do a search on the WF looking for Chris Rempel. He's an affiliate marketer that has posted here about using review sites.

    Adsense isn't a money maker unless you've got an insane amount of traffic, or you have a site in an obscure niche that has a high cost for clicks (and if you find that don't tell anyone!).

    What people tell you about focus is entirely correct. I've been online since 2005 and didn't start making any money until I put my head down and really WORKED - took action - instead of continuing to learn.

    I would rethink your efforts in the "Make Money Online" niche and work to find another niche that isn't so saturated with experienced marketers. The information you learn here will help you to outshine other marketers in other niches.

    My suggestion is to have someone edit your website before putting it up and driving traffic to it. There are many free ways to drive traffic that work, but only if the website is easily readable. I would be willing to edit a couple of your blog posts if you would put a link or banner to my site on your blog.

    Your sales page could use some work. Buy some books on copywriting and study them closely.

    Get your visitors email addresses with a good free report offer and build value by sending them expert information for free. Sign up for dan kennedy, jay abraham & michael fortins email newsletter to see how it should be done.

    But my advice is to learn to walk before you can run. Pick a niche that you can fake it in easier than marketing. Unless you have made lots of money for yourself and others then who in hell is going to pay you for information on how to make money? I say this to a lot of newbies and no one seems to listens.

    When you get practised you will be able to make a niche website, articles for marketing and an autoresponder series within 1 day. My final verdict on your work so far is that your market research and niche selection was poor. Your site is poor and the strength of the copy poor. This is why you have not made any money. Don't give up, your on the right lines you just need to make some adjustments.

      I think you need to start with a fresh niche. Not one about making money online.

      I think if you are selling something you are familiar with you will have a lot more success.

    It's not as easy as everyone makes it sound and the IM market is pretty competitive. Find a way to set your self apart from everyone else and provide truly authentic value to your visitors.
