Stay @ home and work hard as HELL until you get paid! Untill your an internet celebrity, work HARD until my bones start to hurt.

Just want to express this as, the problem when i speak to new IM'ers is that they so just do as much as they should. and expect everything to just fall into there laps.

for example select youtube as a marketing avenue and just pound down onit for hours upon hours.

    Agreed, you need to learn how to get over hurdles until you see success because there are many in IM.

    In theory it makes sense but in practice the difficulty is choosing one avenue and sticking with it until fruition.

    I conclude that you're telling newbies to stick with just 1 marketing strategy and pound it out? Alot of people did that with Google Adwords and EzineArticles.... then God came down and destroyed these businesses.

    I would always add variety in my marketing efforts. I think you should too.

    Well, dag nabbit, why didn't I think of this!

    'if one will stick at something long enough they shall succeeed'
    I guess it doesn't matter what one sticks at. Even if it's a stoopid idea - as long as they stick at it long enough they will succeed - right?

    Thank you for this tremendous insight!

    Sticking and being consistent in 'pounding' a niche or group of niches is good. It's better to be creative and systematic in your marketing strategies, however.

    Also, I've learned that before I believe somebody else's words, regardless if it works for them or not, I need to try it myself because the results are, in most cases, dependent to WHO DOES IT.

    On "vacation" from my real job and working my ass off (had a few personal days I needed to burn before thanksgiving). I wouldn't be as far as I am if I hadn't spent every free hour working on my stuff. Hopefully you are right and this single mindedness pays off.

    I could not agree more. So many people expect to just find something that will make them money without doing a thing! Work is the key.

    Nice post, OP. This could also go in the success forum, but it seems alright here, too because it is about earning money!

    What is WORK? I have not worked a single day or many days,weeks,months,years in my life.

    Work is a four letter word like game. Make a game of it and you will find it is easier to things.

    I would add for IM newbie you must explore everything in the net. Don't put any limit in your marketing efforts. Go beyond. In everything you do in IM there is always a trial and error. If you that your marketing strategy don't try to think for a way that can make things work out.

    You can have your marketing campaigns in different ways. Social media is a good example where you can have your marketing campaigns.

      I would agree with the general sentiment, stick to one thing. When you have become successful at it, choose a new avenue, that new avenue will seem almost crazy easy.
