    You have to work hard. Read many posts in this forum, and you will understand everything you have to do. There are many important details in every aspect.

    I made progress when I started really studying internet marketing and I understood how to create a smart business plan. I also learned how to give to the online users what they want.

    Everyone is looking for simplicity and magical solutions. Nobody likes complications.

    I wrote my first post on this forum a few months ago to explain how I did to earn money for the first time on the Internet. Here are some points that I explain and that might help you:

    • If you can afford it, find a coach. There are some on this forum but it is important to check their reputation. I was fortunate to have one of the best, William Souza, and I found him on this forum. I give you his name but I know he is very busy and he rarely takes new students. You can try to contact him or do your own research. William helped me a lot during the first weeks and his advices serve me today as well.

    • Choose only one niche and only one source of traffic to begin with and concentrate all your efforts on this. When you have mastered enough your traffic source, start again with another.

    • Do not change your mind constantly. Every day, new offers and new ideas appear. You can never know everything about Internet Marketing in record time. Instead, you will be so overwhelmed with information that you will get stuck!

    • Do not get caught by the "magic" offers. Those selling miraculous solutions have realized that people in general are lazy and, for this reason, they get caught up in things that do not work. You will never earn $1,000 a day by installing a program and pressing "Enter"!

    • Always have new goals. Visualize your future success until you really believe you will succeed but remember that magical thinking does not exist, you will succeed because you take action!

    • Set aside time every day...

    You can read the whole post HERE.

    Good luck!

    Never give up and you will make it one day.

    The quitters can obviously never make it.

    If you're in the game, you're already a winner.

    I would strongly suggest you to go to your own blog and implement the techniques and startegies you are sharing with others to make money.

    How many times have I seen this! Don't be to embarrassed to come back with an explanation or with the links removed from your signature.

    It took me 8 months to earn my first $2 online, for me it took a a lot of hard work before I got to the stage that I could go full time. Even now I work and even dream Internet Marketing...please guys don't tell me I'm alone with this!

    Sometimes apart from taking the dog for a walk daily I don't leave the house for a week at a time [the wife does the shopping!] maybe this all sounds drastic and it probably is but I actually enjoy what I'm doing and will hopefully be in a position next year where I outsource much more of the work.

    What I'm trying to say is that especially in the early stages of this business, you've got to work at it and hard.
    My next bit of advise would be to find a decent mentor and again this isn't easy, you need to find someone that you can trust and who walks the talk.

    Good luck

      Hi, First of all i agree with Horny Devil,

      Why would you pretend to be someone you are not? believe me, i made the same mistakes, first day in the forum and i had in my signature "i am making millions already and i want to help you" BIG MISTAKE!

      HINT: i can see you have a nice blog layout, why don't you create a free PDF report about any subject you are interested in (list building, cpa, affiliate marketing, etc) and put it as your signature? something like "Free report on how to ..." (just an idea to get subscribers to your list ), then you can build a simple squeeze page to offer the report.

      Another thing is to never talk about your struggles. How do you expect people to see you as an authority if you are constantly complaining that you don't make any money? (specially in this forum, people is pretty straight forward and they can be very critic )

      just one year in Internet Marketing? take a ticket and wait in the line (or outsmart your competition ). It took me 4 years just to UNDERSTAND what i was doing wrong and the approach i had for this business. I was completely wrong and if you want, you can take a look on my previous threads, you will see i was very angry and frustrated but i learned the hard way.

      Mindset is everything, that's all i can say. you can be very motivated when you start something new, but along the road you will find obstacles that will make you quit. If you do not quite understand what mindset is all about and how important is for business, then you are doomed for failure. My best recommendation for mindset is: Law of attraction - Bryan Tracy

      Hope it helps!

      Cheers!

    Read everything you can but don't forget to put what you read into practise too otherwise you will never make anything.

    I think they 3 biggest factors to success for me have been persistance, trial and error and taking action.

      As other's have already mentioned, you might want to change your signature...

      Other than that, to really make it online, one of the most important "rules" I strongly believe needs to be followed is to PERSEVERE!

      An online business is almost guaranteed to be inconsistent. For some, the inconsistency can be one week they make $1500 and the next week they make $1000. For MANY, the inconsistency can be one week they make $300 and the next week they make $0.00...

      No matter which bracket you're in, you MUST stay consistent if you want to make it online.

    I hear you . . . just keep at it!

    A lot of people are in your shoes. It's easy to get discouraged, but those that finally see success just keep going, even if it seems pointless at times.

    I have been at it for a long time, and only now I am seeing some of the work i have put in. For me, I choose the low hanging fruits . . .

    I only started around 9 months ago but I learned a whole lot, plus a LOT of stuff (WSO's etc ...) that confused me and took me directions I shouldn't have been going. I even stopped for one month because I had extreme information overload and I had no clue what to do anymore. This business can do that to you very easily.

    I had some success promoting other peoples products in the health niche, but the trouble with that was I didn't see that as my future. And more to the point, I didn't feel in-tune with pushing diet pills. It's not me somehow. I got stuck only promoting products that had the highest commissions, so I basically didn't care what I was selling or to whom. But deep down I don't like pushing products that I basically have no idea if they work or not. It doesn't fit with my values because I do care about people.

    So I got a mentor, who I won't mention, and I've been working with him on a totally new direction, and he got me focused. That's essential. I unsubscribed from all of the email lists that were not relevant to my new direction, and shut everything out unless it served my new goal.

    I also stopped wasting time on trash webinars and marketing websites, and started spending my time WORKING - being productive, producing, creating. I do make time for the odd webinar now, but only after I have done what I needed to do for that day. Before I wasted days upon days just reading, and then wondering why I wasn't making loads of money. I wasn't doing anything but learning about it, and constantly hoping to find an easier "magic bullet" - something simpler than what I was doing that would make me more money quicker. It was only a few months ago when I finally got that thought out of my thick head and realised that it doesn't exist. The only way is work and more work - creating, promoting, traffic, networking, bettering your skills, etc etc ....

    All I can say is don't give up. Funnily enough I came across this quote today, and I think it fits your question well -

    "Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure". Napoleon Hill.

    Keep going and keep the mindset that you will succeed. But it's essential that you get focused. Cut EVERY distraction out and get off email lists that don't serve your purpose. Stop webinars and downloading PDF's about everything and anything. Get a plan and stick to it, no matter what.

    This should help you a lot, at least I hope so.

    I've been in the mindset you are right now and the only thing you need to do is change the way you're thinking. If you're thinking "one day" you'd like to make it, change to "right now" I'm make it happen.

    Do you want to sell something valuable to make money where the customer has no doubt of what they have was worth the money? (and perhaps building a lasting communication)

    or

    Do you want to sell to confused people who don't know if what you are proposing is valuable but they might buy it and try to understand it or file it away in case one day they can start to understand. Then the value exchange is more murky but they may follow you because you talk in a way they 'think' is useful or entertaining to them

    or

    Do you want to capitalize on bored, confused, habitual or disoriented 'mouse clickers' who are more or less aimlessly searching for an answer.. and you can route them to something that 'seems' valuable and get credit for the clicks

    (Are there any other models I missed?)

    You have this mentality:

    "Making money online is truly a grind. It's very hard. I have to grind it out, before I can sit back and relax and enjoy the profits it starts pulling in"

    When you should have this mentality:

    "Making money online is extraordinarily fun and easy. As long as I take consistent action everyday, relax, and am constantly willing to pivot my approach to the industry, I am guaranteed success"

      Wow didn't ever think of it that way. Believing it is easy makes it so.
