I have purchased a few eBooks on how to make money on the net, trying to stay away from the ones that promise outrageous returns and have dumped over $1500 away and made far less. I've yet to find something that actually turns a profit. I've tried adsense, CPA and clickbank -- so my question is, for people who are just starting and at the mercy of others reading materials etc. how do you know when to quit and find something else? Is there anything out there that's really "follow this method and it WILL work"?
